Pinterest is ideal for sharing visual content and discovering new ideas. Personally, I’m a huge fan of the platform and use it as a source of inspiration — I make Pinterest boards related to my interests (travel, style, etc.).
The call to action is a put up or shut up moment that can turn curiosity into a legitimate business opportunity. It’s the bridge between visitors and leads — a point of entry that allows you to capitalize on the web traffic you generate.
As marketers, we know the importance of making data-driven decisions. The more data we know about our audience — from how many are being reached to how many engage with our content — the more we’re able to make effective marketing moves.

Email marketers have known this for ages, but what drives me nuts is that they waste their time on tiny little tests — instead of tackling some of the bigger, more exciting tests that yield real […]
