Your 30 Day Pinterest Traffic Generation Guide
Use Pinterest Messages to engage your audience.
Pinterest Messages is a lot like the messaging or chat options found on other social platforms. With Messages you can contact a pinner directly on Pinterest or send them a message directly to their email address. The only thing is they have to be following at least one of your boards.
This is a great tool for sharing content directly with another pinner. You can engage them in a conversation through Messages instead of having to use comments on individual pins.
