Pinterest is much more than a social media platform. It is a robust search tool that is changing the nature of ecommerce sales online. It’s not just a place for large brands with big ad budgets either. Small businesses are finding success on the platform and are harnessing the power of this massive search engine to grow their businesses. 

With 300+ million active monthly users on Pinterest in 2019, it’s a platform that is well worth looking into as a small business owner.

Small business owners often face two major challenges: limited funding and a lack of manpower.

While widespread internet access has somewhat alleviated the pains that these challenges cause – by enabling just about anyone to run an entire business online – it’s specifically social media networks that have provided many small businesses with a more level playing field against their giant corporate counterparts.

However, where there once existed only a handful of social networks, today’s options (and therefore, opportunities) are endless. So how does a business, with limited time and resources, successfully establish a digital presence within each one?
