Webinar: How to use Pinterest to drive website traffic and build your brand

Pinterest's Creators Lead and a Vamp creator share their Pinterest strategy insights.

Pinterest’s popularity has been growing strong and steadily.


During lockdown, the platform reported increased users and record levels of engagement, as we all look for inspiration and escapism while stuck at home. There are now 400m monthly active users. 7m in AU, 15m UK, 5M Japan, 90M US and since COVID, searches and new boards created are up 60%. It’s clear that the platform is a lucrative opportunity for marketers and creators alike – if you know how to use it correctly.

In this webinar, Pinterest’s Creators Lead, Sophie Shepherd, and Digital Creator, Jenelle Witty joined Vamp’s Head of Content, Lauren Thomas. They shared their tips on effective Pinterest strategies and explained how it can be used as a tool to drive website traffic, awareness and sales.


Key takeaways:


#1 Be active

A little time investment goes a long way. Pin regularly and add as much as you can. Activity will also show up in your follower’s notification keeping you top of mind.

#2 Practical titles

Think discoverability. Use terms Pinners will search for so you’ll be included in their search results. No whimsical titles.

#3 Use your analytics

Upgrade to a Business account and you’ll have access to data about how your pins are performing. This will help you to refine your strategy in a reactive way.

#4 Test video

It’s an underused format on Pinterest, but can generate great engagement. Try repurposing videos or cinemagraphs.
