Since its launch almost 5 years ago, Pinterest has been growing with loyal fans. Well, who wouldn’t love Pinterest? It’s fun, creative, and so easy to easy to use.
As a business owner, I also look at Pinterest as a great marketing tool. Pinterest’s interface makes it very easy for people to share your content. You can also share others’ content with your community to encourage engagement. The magic of Pinterest is you can do all that while having fun! And holiday season is a great time to look at Pinterest as it gets really active.
There are some awesome Pinterest plugins for WordPress that make it even easier to get creative with Pinterest. Here are some that you might be interested in:
Pinterest “Pin It” Button
This plugin adds a very simple “Pin it” button to your blog post, making it super easy for people to pin your content. Can’t get any simpler than this!
If you’d rather want a pin button right on your image, here is another plugin that does that:
