As small business owners, it’s important to understand how to market our businesses effectively. This is especially true in the digital age, where people can find information about your business anywhere. While many businesses purchase advertising online, social media is an incredibly effective tool when used properly.

However, social media is a very competitive place for businesses which requires careful content creation skills. If you put out poor-quality content, you automatically place yourself at a disadvantage.

Luckily, Pinterest is a more forgiving platform than some other options because it’s less competitive. This platform is less commercialized and smaller, letting quality content shine. Posts, or Pins as they’re called on Pinterest, typically stay relevant much longer, too. Better yet, it’s a great place to reach younger, more affluent audiences.

In other words, Pinterest Pins are highly effective tools for smaller brands and creative niches.

But What Should You Post?

All social media management programs need a content calendar or map of what you’ll post and when. Ideally, you’ll give customers a well-balanced view of your business and what it has to offer. In the process, your audience will understand why your business is unique and why they should buy your products.

There are several posting options that can help small business owners achieve their social media goals on Pinterest. Let’s look at a few of them.

1. Unique Product Showcases for Your Business Offerings


Most car companies show their vehicles on the road, often in contexts where the occupants are going somewhere. Or they might showcase a vehicle feature in ways that are more obvious. Here, Acura’s Pinterest Pin draws on the idea of energy. It’s unusual and very effective.

2. Behind-the-Scenes Looks at Your Business Operations


Do people wonder what kind of office you have? Are your employees happy? This illustration of happy employees working together shows that the company behind it craves a collaborative environment.

Of course, the approach works just as well with retail or factory jobs. Remember, part of social media management is putting a human face behind your business.

3. Inspiring Customer Testimonials And Success Stories


Weight Watchers is the OG of diet groups in the United States. But despite being based on an old-fashioned diet, many people fail. This person promises to show how they succeeded at losing weight on a particular WW plan. Don’t you want to learn their secret?

4. Creative Ways to Use Your Products in Daily Life


Most people think about their patio as a place to put a few chairs, some tables, and perhaps a pile of old toys. Scenes like this one are much less common because people don’t have that level of creativity or because it would cost too much.

However, Home Depot shows how you can create an oasis with only a few items from their store.

5. Collaboration Pins With Influencers Or Other Small Businesses

6. Industry News And Trends Related to Your Business


Who said returning to the office is mandatory? You can find a great job that pays and tell management it’s work from home or bust. Of course, business owners can also use this Pinterest Pins technique to show that they are on-trend or why their products are important.

7. Pinterest-Exclusive Discounts Or Promotions for Your Followers
