How B2B Content Marketers Can Take Advantage of Pinterest — 1827 MarketingPinterest is sharpening its emphasis on the business side of the platform under the direction of CEO Bill Ready, who took over the role a year ago.

In order to capitalize on this habit, the firm emphasizes “shoppable content,” a decision that has greatly increased user engagement.

Ready explained this change by pointing out that more than half of Pinterest’s users say they use the site to purchase.
