Sure, Facebook and Twitter are incredibly important for every digital marketer. However, with multiple other platforms and new apps burgeoning everyday, the attention of your virtual audience is divided among a roster of social networks. Pinterest, for one, has seen explosive growth over the past two years and is not one to miss.

Step 1.  Discover Your Pinterest Audience Growth 

Once you’ve added Pinterest Accounts that you would like to track, head over to the Compare tab where you will find the relevant sub tabs. 


Jump into the Followers sub tab. Here you will see how you stack up against your competitors by the number of followers you gained over a given time period. In the graph below, we see in the Luxury sector that Burberry received a significant increase in Followers in the last week.
