Pinterest IS the All-Rounder Social Media Platform. Here’s Why.
Social media advertising started out as a single-channel practise more than a decade ago when the idea of a digital media platform where people could share their thoughts, emotions and opinions saw a rise in getting socially accepted on an at least not so narrow scale. Back then general SM sites existed only, and throughout the years more and more specialized ones emerged. You can now Snap a moment, Tweet a thought, or Pin an idea, the latter gaining increasing attention overtime.
We love to pin the moment. Read on if you do so too.
1. Why Do You Use Pinterest?
This is the type of questions which is inevitably going to produce vague answers. There could be an infinite number of reasons why one would decide to go to Pinterest instead of Snapchat, YouTube, or TikTok, and the same could be said why you wouldn’t go to Pinterest. However, some reasons could be pointed out, as the SM site clearly has its reasoning done well for their 335 million (yes) monthly active users.
Pinterest is a great tool to gain inspiration from the smallest to the largest challenges in life.
If you want to find entertainment or information on a product, you may go to YouTube, to stay connected with your friends you may go to Instagram, and for a more direct way of communication you may send them a Snap. However, when you are looking for ideas, in general, from things like decorating your room, planning your summer outfit, or even looking for the perfect gift for your significant other, you might as well decide to go to Pinterest. The platform is FULL of greater and greater ideas for many, many different things, they are easy to access and with the site’s built-in AI when you come across an idea of your preference, you are bombarded with additional ones that, in the most cases, reflect your desires. Wanna gain inspiration for something in life? Give Pinterest a shot.
Pinterest helps your search by leading to relevant websites, outside of the platform.
When you find an idea, you can Pin it, save it for later, but you may also decide to visit the source of those pins externally, which may help you find other stuff of your interest. If you are planning on decorating your room, for general items it’s good to find something you like and they search for something locally or domestically, as a lot of times many items look pretty similar, right? However, in case you need a specialized item, or a custom-design done and you finally, after a long day of search you found one, it might be great if you could catch the source immediately. On Pinterest, businesses can advertise themselves, which allows them to better reach out to you, but allows you, the user too to really find the stuff you desire.
