Last November, I blogged about using Pinterest for your massage business.
At that time, I stated that "I'm not sure that using Pinterest will directly bring you more massage clients, and I've found conflicting information on whether or not it helps with search engine optimization."
After several months of using Pinterest for business myself, I can say that it's definitely worth it to bring more traffic to your site. The SEO experts are still saying that Google is not admitting to increased traffic affecting search rankings, so I can't say for sure that it will help your SEO. But, more visitors to your site is never a bad thing.
This is a screenshot of the Bodywork Buddy blog stats.
Pinterest is the 2nd highest referring site to my blog.
What does this mean? People clicked on Bodywork Buddy pins on Pinterest, clicked through to see the original post containing that pin. Which took them to my blog. Which is on my website. Which increases my site traffic. Following me? Not to mention that while they are on my site I have an opportunity to gain them as a client.
Might be worth a few minutes of your time, yes? There is no need to spend hours on Pinterest to see the benefits.
