Pinterest is now such a big platform that even major eCommerce companies now sell directly on this social media platform. If you don’t already have a Pinterest business account, you may want to create one.
This guide will teach you how to sell on Pinterest, indirectly or directly. It will also explain whether now is the best time for selling on Pinterest and why it’s so effective.
Can You Sell on Pinterest?
The quick answer: YES!
All you need to do is find the right audience for your products and create content that will entice them to click through and buy what you’re selling.
If you’re a blogger or influencer with a following, this is easy: just tell your readers about the products you’re promoting! If you don’t have an audience yet, reach out to people with large followings who might be willing to include your links in their pins.
You can also promote yourself as an affiliate marketer by creating content around products relevant to your niche (like fashion or food), linking to those products in the post itself, and the description section under each pin.
How Can Users Shop from Pinterest?
These are the different ways you can shop from Pinterest:
Shop from a Pinterest Board
The Shop tab will show products from all of the boards you follow, so you can easily browse products across multiple boards.
When Pinners click on a product in the Shop tab, they’ll be taken to a product page where they can learn more about it, see customer reviews, and add it to their cart to purchase it later.
Using Pinterest Search
The new tab will appear at the top of search results as you type in a product or brand name. You’ll also see related results from other places within Pinterest, like content from your feed and Pins you’ve saved.
This new feature is rolling out globally over the next few weeks and will be available on mobile and desktop devices.
When you search for a product on Pinterest, you’ll see related products from partner stores-including items for looks and rooms-that match your search. You can click on these pins to shop for similar products from the same store or any other source.
And if you want to see even more results from our partners, just tap “Shop Similar” at the bottom of each pin that shows up in your search results.
How to Sell on Pinterest?
You can start selling on Pinterest by creating a business account. This is an essential step because it’s what lets you sell products from your page, and it’s the only way for people to buy from your page.
To set up a business account, open the Pinterest app and tap on “Me” in the bottom left corner of your screen. Then, tap on “Business Account.” This will take you to the business signup page, where you can enter your name and email address, choose a profile picture and password, and agree to the terms of service.
Once you’ve completed this process, Pinterest will send an email with instructions on verifying your account via phone call or text message.
There are a few things you need to know. Here are the top five tips for selling on Pinterest:
1) Make sure you have an easy-to-find link in your bio. This should go directly to your website and not be buried in a long list of other links.
2) Use high-quality images that show your products well and make them look appealing.
3) Pin frequently but not excessively; this will help build up interest in what you’re selling without overwhelming your audience or making them feel like they’ve seen too many posts from one source in one day (or week).
4) Tag people interested in what you’re selling-this could include influencers who might share the post on their own social media pages or bloggers who may want to write about it for their blog or website.
5) Be consistent with your posting schedule so people know when they can expect new content from you!
Other Ways to Make Money on Pinterest
When creating a Pinterest account, you can follow various other users and pay for promoted posts. This means that you could potentially receive money for your business. There are also lots of free methods to make sales, including the following:
Affiliate Links on Pinterest
Pinterest has a platform called “Promoted Pins,” which allows businesses to promote their products on the social media platform. Companies can choose from four ad types: Promoted Pin, Promoted Video, Sponsored Stories, and Rich Pins. These are based on the same principle-they allow businesses to promote content that drives traffic back to their site or store.
If you have a website where you sell products, then this is an effective way to get more sales. You can use your promotional code once per user per day with each Promoted Pin campaign you run. That means if someone clicks through one of your ads and makes a purchase on your website within 24 hours, they will be able to use your promotional code again when they check out!
Link Your Website or Blog
Create a website about the topic of your pins or blog about it so that people can buy directly from you instead of going through an Amazon listing or other retailer’s site where they’ll have to pay extra shipping fees.
If it’s too much work for you to set up a store on your site, just create an e-book about whatever topic your pins are about-make sure it’s clearly labeled as an affiliate link so that people know what they’re buying into when they click that link!
Sell Pinterest Templates
There are many ways you can use Pinterest to promote your business. One way is through the use of templates. Templates are free images you can use on your website or blog. They come in all styles and colors and can help you create a cohesive look for your website or blog.
There are also several ways you can sell templates on Pinterest. You can sell them directly from your account or another social media platform such as Facebook or Twitter if they’re not available on Pinterest yet (which will be discussed later).
If you’re looking for ways to make money with Pinterest, selling templates is one way that might interest you.
