If you’re a teacher or a teacher blogger then you already know all about the Pinterest craze. It holds the key to all life hacks and solutions… am I right?? I find that I spend entirely too much time scrolling through Pinterest. It’s like a rabbit hole, I find pin after pin that speak to me so of course what do I do? Pin them!
And that is how Pinterest marketing began.
Pinterest knew what they were doing by (in my opinion) one upping Google by making a visual search engine. Who isn’t drawn in by the amazing pictures and graphics you see all over as you search for your latest meal prep recipe?
Why This Matters?
You may be wondering why Pinterest matters in growing your blog or online business. The first thing is truly understanding that Pinterest is not really a social media platform in the way that Facebook or Instagram are. It is truly a search engine. A really awesome one at that!
