How to Capitalize on Pinterest

By Charlie Allred

As Lynn Pineda, a south Florida real estate professional said, “If you are in real estate and you are not on Pinterest, something’s wrong with you.” I couldn’t agree with this sentiment more. Lynn is one of the few REALTORS® capitalizing on the benefits of Pinterest to her real estate business.

When I speak with real estate professionals, most aren’t sure how to get more visitors to their website or blog. Usually, they’ve built a pretty website and now it’s just sitting with no visitors. The goal of a real estate website is lead generation. The main benefit of Pinterest is driving more traffic to your real estate website, so why aren’t more agents capitalizing on Pinterest?

Top 3 benefits to using Pinterest:

  1. Drive traffic to your website immediately.
  2. Traffic to your real estate website brings Google ranking organically.
  3. Grow your sphere fast by connecting with more potential clients.
Pinterest isn’t going anywhere; it’s one of the fastest growing websites. Pinterest drives more referral traffic than Twitter, and Pinterest drives more referral traffic than Google+, YouTube and LinkedIn combined. If you are looking for more traffic to your website, Pinterest is the place to be.

Personally, I have never had much success with Twitter, most likely because I’m not tweeting enough. With Pinterest, you don’t have to pin every minute of every day to get seen. Eighty percent of all pins are repinned versus approximately one percent of tweets that are retweeted. Pins have a long lifespan, more than 50 percent of pins happen 3.5 months after a pin is originally published. What other marketing tool keeps bringing visitors to your website for 3.5 months after you post?
According to NAR, there are 997,148 REALTORS®, as of May 2013. From my count, there are only 984 REALTORS® on Pinterest. With Pinterest driving so much traffic to websites, why aren’t more REALTORS® taking advantage of Pinterest?

Picture your typical real estate marketing brochure, it is all about real estate right? It has your photo, a photo of a house or a few houses and this type of advertisement is technically junk mail, right?
Pinterest allows the agent to showcase in one glance who they are and what they do to potential clients. That in itself is the most amazing marketing tool I have ever seen. Plus, you’re generating web traffic to your real estate website or blog. Pinterest is a win all around for real estate practitioners.

  18. The main purpose of education is to help students gain the knowledge and skills so that they will be able to function in society. Students need to be provided with the necessary skills so that they can learn to become productive citizens. There are many advantages that are associated with receiving an education. Students will be able to contribute to their community and help make it a better place to live. Education basically helps shape society because it helps students learn to become more sociable and helps them develop relationships with their peers. Students will be more qualified for different job positions if they have a good solid education. Education is vital to each student’s life, therefore, by working hard to provide the best instruction possible will help train students to become future leaders and will lead to a better life.
    Education is essential to every student’s life as well as their future. Students can have a prosperous life by receiving a good quality education. My thoughts are that students need to learn from the books along with other various materials just as I did while growing up. The classroom curriculum should be decided by their teacher and the teacher should set clear goals as to what is expected from the students. Students should work hard to achieve their goals because it will certainly be worth it in the end. According to essentialism, ‘Schools should not radically try to reshape society but schools should transmit traditional moral values and intellectual knowledge that students need to become model citizens’. Read about education help at School Uniforms benefits . The school should stress the importance of values because some children are not taught these at home. Teaching children good values helps build their character and helps them become respectable people. In regards to education, I think society is important because this is a place where we all live so we should work to make it a better place.
