We hear you in the PBC! As a small business owner, you always look for new ways to reach potential customers and drive traffic to your website. Whether you monetize your website with sponsored ads, affiliate links, services, or products, you need traffic. With over 400 million users worldwide, Pinterest can be an excellent platform for achieving these goals. One of the best ways to make the most out of Pinterest is by leveraging its trending topics and keywords to create relevant and engaging content.
In this blog post, I will cover how to use the Pinterest Trends tool, Audience Insights, and Pinterest Predicts to identify trending topics, understand your target audience, and ultimately drive traffic to your website.
Using Pinterest Trends to research popular topics and keywords:One way to find trending topics on Pinterest is by using the Pinterest Trends tool. You can research topics that are currently popular in your niche and see how search volume changes over time. For instance, suppose you run a skincare business. In that case, you can use Pinterest Trends to identify rising searches for "clean beauty" and create content around it. For example, you can create blog posts or infographics on how your clean beauty products work and why they are a great choice for skincare enthusiasts.

Using Audience Insights to understand your target audience: Audience Insights is an excellent tool to understand your potential customers' interest on Pinterest. You can identify their search and save behaviors and use them to create content that resonates with them. Suppose you sell sustainable fashion products. In that case, you can use Audience Insights to identify your target audience's interest in "upcycled fashion." You can create Pins showcasing your upcycled fashion products and share content on how your brand contributes to a more sustainable future.
