September in Pinterest News
The holiday season is the most profitable and busy time of the year for most brands. Website traffic spikes during Q4, bringing in new potential leads or an increased affiliate revenue. Yet, even with demand being on the rise, it’s smart to have a strategy set in place ahead of time. If you’re not ready to accommodate the increase in demand you will surely miss out.
There’s a lot to be done ahead of the holiday rush.
Businesses around this time of the year need to go the extra mile to ensure Q4 is profitable. All aspects of a business need to be looked at and made sure everyone is ready.
If you’re an ecommerce seller make sure you have enough inventory to support the increase in orders. If you’re a blogger making revenue from affiliate marketing now is the time to check your content calendar and make sure you’re ready.
Happily, when it comes to Pinterest we have a lot of resources to go through. Ever since they started to focus more on their advertising business, Pinterest has been releasing new webinars to help brands on their platform grow. And they have announced three brand new webinars ahead of the holiday season.
