To Pin or Not to Pin
Pinterest Analytics allows you to measure follower growth, pin performance, and leads and helps you reach your social media targets.
The valuable insights offered by Pinterest Analytics will help you gain a better understanding of your audience and develop more robust content.
Whether it’s Facebook, Instagram, TikTok, or Pinterest, you need to track and analyse your marketing efforts.
Let’s look at Pinterest Analytics and how it can help your business grow on the platform.
Pinterest Business Account
To do any form of analysis on Pinterest, you must have a Business Account.
Click on the Business Account link above and follow the steps below.
If you already have a Pinterest account, upgrading to a business account is super simple. All you have to do is click on the drop-down menu next to your profile picture and select Convert to business. From there, simply follow the steps.
If you’d like to create a business account from scratch, head to Pinterest Business and follow the steps.
Start by filling out some basic information about your business.
Next, Pinterest will ask you for more information about your business and help you build your profile.
To help your reach the right audience, Pinterest will ask you to answer some questions about your brand and define a few goals.
And, of course, no self-respecting social media platform worth its salt would let you walk away without asking if you’re interested in spending money on its platform.
From there, it’s time to get to know the platform a little better.
