Pinterest has quickly made a name for itself in the world of social networking, and many companies have started to jump on board in order to reach the millions of people who are currently using the site.
But some companies haven’t yet realized how to analyze their reach on the new network, so they don’t know whether or not their use of Pinterest is having any type of effect on their business.
Luckily, there are analytics tools out there to help those businesses learn more about their Pinterest endeavors.
Curalate understands that Pinterest does not work the same way as Facebook, Twitter and the other text-based social networks. Pinterest works with images, and Curalate created a special algorithm designed to help your company learn and understand your brand’s social curation. Curalate locates all the people who are pinning and discussing your brand through Pinterest and provides you with this data in an easy to read format. You can also respond directly to those users through their dashboard. Curalate also provides you with real data on your leading fans—even if they don’t follow you—and will also show you which exact items are generating the most interest across Pinterest. And the best part? They’ll even provide you with graphed analytics so that you can see exactly how your company is doing against your competitors.
