Pinterest And Videos – It Can Be Done
Many people know that Pinterest is a social media platform that is also a photo sharing site but what a lot of people don’t realize is that it is also a video sharing site. That is, if you share a video link on Pinterest the video will become embedded into your image for Pinterest and you’ve got another great traffic source.
What does this mean for your business?
Well first off it means if you don’t have pictures readily available but have videos already on Youtube and the internet, you’re already good to go. No time wasted looking for photos, you can start pinning right away and begin utilizing Pinterest and all it’s traffic goodness!
It also means that you can maximize on Youtube as well. Look at it this way: If you already have a Youtube account that is doing fairly well and has been accepted to have ads, you can further capitalize on it by posting your videos to Pinterest. Then you have yet another source of traffic and another source of income for your business. Utilizing both sites to their full potential will only mean major traffic and rewards for your business and your pocket book.
Another great side effect of doing this is getting high quality backlinks to your videos, which will further help your cause by getting them better rankings within the search engines. Nothing like doing double duty with no added work!
And of course you can also use Pinterest in the traditional way with pictures and images as well. Mix up your boards with a healthy combination of both images and video and your traffic should surge and you could end up with more customers than you know what to do with.
