Why every Etsy shop needs Pinterest as a marketing channel

As an Etsy seller with less or more experience, you probably know that “surviving” in the high competition marketplace like Etsy, requires marketing strategy and knowledge.

Driving additional traffic outside Etsy is always a good idea! But where is the question? In our small marketing agency, we found that social media platforms are great “magnets’ to Etsy. But do you need all the social media? Actually not! In our experience, we found that Pinterest drives the best results when it comes to Etsy business. Curious? Find out here why every Etsy shop needs Pinterest as a marketing channel to drive more traffic and sales!

Why Pinterest is different? Actually, because it is not a social media, it is a visual search engine like Google. It is proven, that the people are on Pinterest not to show yourself, but to look for something – ideas, inspiration, shopping or solving their problems. As an owner of a unique handmade crafts business on Etsy, you may have what to show the people with your products. You may know how to solve their problem and give them a possible solution and inspiration. But how they can find you? Etsy is full of products from all over the world. You will need a strategy to reach your target audience and dream customers. Showing your products as beautiful and optimized pins on Pinterest can be a great additional source of targeted traffic, outside Etsy and not depending Etsy algorithm changes! Here are the steps to start with your Pinterest marketing for your Etsy business:

  1. Create your business Pinterest account – it is super easy and takes just a few minutes!
  2. Optimize your Pinterest business name, story, and picture – include as much as possible keywords in your name and story and show a picture of YOU, not your Etsy logo. The people on Pinterest will like the idea to meet the Etsy shop owner face to face!
  3. Create your Pinterest content in organized boards and SEO optimized – add a few boards with your products, but add few boards with the other pinners pins. You don’t want to spam Pinterest only with your products, sharing pins from other people on Pinterest is the main rule!
  4. Pin every single day or at least a few times in a week. Consistency is the key to success!

Pinterest will not drive you “magical” traffic overnight, but in few months consistency and strategy you will have a lot of people finding you through Pinterest and the best part are that this will be totally organic /free!/.
