Why market YOUR business on Pinterest?

Did you know that 75% of images ('pins') saved on Pinterest come from businesses? A pin lives on for months, even years, compared to a few minutes or hours on Twitter or Facebook. It continues to drive traffic back to you website long after posting it. How's that for ROI? 

According to industry analysts, Pinterest has the potential to drive more sales than Facebook.  Learn more.

Over 50% of my social traffic comes from Pinterest!

On average, out of all social traffic, Pinterest brings me around 50% of traffic!  One of the ways I market my business is by publishing pins on Pinterest that lead back to my blog posts. Is your target audience on Pinterest? Are you interested in attracting attention without appearing too sales-y? Then Pinterest may be a good fit for you and your business! A presence on Pinterest can attract visitors to your website to buy your product, sign up for your mailing list or bookmark your site for a future purchase.

As with any social media network, success on Pinterest does not come overnight. I have been immersed in Pinterest since 2013 and have learnt how to leverage this platform. I share my experience in regular blog articles and there's my Pinterest for Business Starter Kit for those of you who are keen to learn more. But if this sounds like too much hard work to you, we can work together!

About me

Hi! My name is Mary Lumley, creator of BornToBeSocial.com. In 2012, I discovered Pinterest and started pinning. I quickly realised the incredible potential of this inspirational search engine as a marketing tool for businesses.​  

I found that very little information about Pinterest was available in French.There is so much information out there in English that non-English speakers were missing out on! My enthusiasm for Pinterest led to the idea to set up a website and blog with a French touch dedicated to Pinterest.The result is BornToBeSocial.com.

I am a social media consultant with 25 years of international business experience in a range of industries. I help businesses to grow site traffic and attract new clients through Pinterest. I live, work and pin in France where I enjoy life under the sun with my husband and two daughters.​
