Pinterest traffic logoScaleogy.com, ‘The Success Catalyst’ announced today that their website traffic has grown thanks to Pinterest Traffic. Pinterest is a visual social media platform that is growing rapidly and is now believed to be the 3rd most popular social network.

Pinterest Traffic is massively boosting website traffic in many niches in 2012.

This isn’t going to stop in the near future with the visual social media platform growing day by day. Scaleogy launched an innovative new section on their website, titled simply ‘Eye Candy’

“2013 is looking like the year of Pinterest and we are most certainly on board” says Ben Hulme the founder of Scaleogy.com ‘the Success Catalyst’.

Pinterest is growing at an alarming rate and there is a lot more to it than posting up your favourite images. It’s also a huge traffic generation tool for many businesses, and even though I have only just started Eye Candy, the traffic stats have been amazing.

“We all know that online businesses are dead without traffic, so it is important to look into all avenues these days. Leveraging the larger social platforms such as Pinterest, Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn are essential for surviving online these days” Says Ben.

Scaleogy is a website bringing the best of the best to those living a lifestyle of luxury and inspiring those striving towards it.  Pinterest is a fantastic visual platform, which is the perfect fit to show case all the wonderful images from the articles on their website.

“Each image has a link back to our website. This means that when a Pinterest user looks at the image and clicks on it, they are immediately redirected back to our website. This is hugely powerful and a perfect fit for the nature of our business in the lifestyle and luxury market” Ben says.

If your business is visual or uses images in anyway then you should really head over to Pinterest and set up your account now. It’s very easy to use, quickly sign up and then create your ‘boards’ you can then upload images from your website or directly from your computer.

Then get social; you can interact with other users, follow them and comment on their images. You can also ‘re-pin’ other peoples images. Which enables their followers to see your images. So if you have a very popular image then this can go viral very quickly spreading round the entire network.

You can follow Scaleogy on Pinterest or check out their website for more about luxury and lifestyle brands, products and services.

 

Summary

Pinterest is a great tool for businesses, but not all businesses. Scaleogy is a great example of how a recent Pinterest launch can affect traffic to your website, however their niche is perfect for ‘Pinning.’

So how can a local business use Pinterest? Other great examples would be for Landscape gardeners – images of your latest beautiful works, Building and renovation services – images of your recent projects, Handmade or craft items – images of your latest creation and so on.
