Typically Blush, a texas-based online clothing store, repins fashion-related pins and shares them with its audience.

‌‌You can type in your keywords, and spend some time curating content that your audience will enjoy. This will make your profile seem more thought of and add an endless stream of content a new audience can discover you by. This will also help you keep up with your industry, competitors, and what pinners enjoy interacting with on the platform.

This maximizes the possibility of being discovered on the platform as people repin your content with their audience.

This is why you should always enable rich pins. Rich pins are a type of pins that keep the information on your website and pins automatically synced no matter what. Rich pins can be identified by the extra information that is included above and below a picture once a pinner clicks on it. This will allow you to keep your pins always relevant since rich pins accommodate any changes made to your website or profile.

5. Become a Verified Merchant

We talked in a previous blog post about the importance of becoming a verified merchant on the platform in order for you to leverage the platform to its fullest. This program helps pinners browse and buy products from businesses on the platform vouched for by Pinterest.

Besides getting a checkmark by your name and “Verified Merchant” by your handle, you will have access to the Shop tab. In this tab, users will be shown your products with a direct link to your website and the price listed. This is a free feature and according to Pinterest, verified merchants see about 17% higher conversion rate than those who aren’t.

This is it for this post, but you can read more about how you can leverage Pinterest to promote your brand in our other posts. One last thing to keep in mind is that Pinterest is a visual platform that thrives on aesthetically pleasing and educational content, so filming and posting high-quality photos is essential.
