According to a study released in July 2013 by Semiocast, Pinterest had over 70 million users worldwide. This relatively new visual discovery tool outpaced Facebook and Twitter in reaching 10 million monthly unique visitors in just 9 months! Pinterest’s amazing statistics aren’t limited to just this record. According to Gigya, Pinterest grabs more eCommerce traffic than Facebook (41% and 37% responsively). What’s more, Pinterest users don’t just like to shop around and pin, but they also like to spend. In the light of these facts it makes sense to add Pinterest to your marketing arsenal and the Pin It! button to your website.
If you are a Wix user, adding the Pin It! button is a cakewalk. Wix devs have just brought you their latest feature: the Pinterest button allowing your site visitors to pin content directly from your site to their boards with a click. If your website is focused on selling, this could bring organic traffic that in its turn could translate into better sales.
To try out the new feature, enter your Wix account, click the ‘Add’ button, select ‘Social’, then ‘Pinterest Pin It’. From the image gallery choose the image that will appear in Pinterest after your visitors share it via the Pin It! button. Remember to type a description of the image. It will appear in Pinterest. To customize the look of your new button go the Pinterest Pin It settings tab and change the settings for counter, size and color. You can also add animation.
