Using Pinterest to grow your brand is a smart move. It’s the best place for start-ups and budding businesses. If you haven’t done so yet, you can check out why you need to do so now and how to create a business account in our other guide.

In this guide, we will help you manage your Pinterest account by teaching you how to control your notifications. Doing this will let you focus on urgent and important aspects of your business.

Read on to learn more about Pinterest notifications and how to utilize them to boost your daily productivity. 

Pinterest Notifications: What’s Urgent and What’s Not

Users are notified about every event that happens on their Pinterest by default. Some examples of these are:

  • Comments, mentions, saves, and tries of the Pins you saved;
  • Messages, invitations, and group board updates;
  • New Pins from the people you follow.

You are bound to get tons of notifications of these happenings in just one day! Just imagine if you’re managing multiple accounts (your personal and your business account). It can be overwhelming!

Luckily, Pinterest lets you choose what alerts you want to receive and where you want to get them. This makes it easier for you to segregate events and manage your business account effectively.

Important notifications

Important events, like private messages and comments on your pins, can be made to appear directly on your mobile device or browser via push notifications.

Being alerted immediately of customer inquiries and remarks lets you interact with them almost in real-time. Remember, customer satisfaction is guaranteed when you are very attentive to their needs.

Not-so-important notifications

On the other hand, events that don’t need urgent attention, like notifications about what Pins your friends liked, can be directed to your email. This lets you have breathing room during busy hours. Then you can just sift through the less important email notifications at a later time.

It is still essential to know what Pins people like so that you can have an idea of what’s trending. You can then ride the trend to improve your brand’s visibility.

Unnecessary notifications

And then there are those notifications that you don’t necessarily need in your life. Examples of these are alerts that contain recommended pins and boards. These may be useful, but will just be spammy most of the time.

You may simply turn off notifications for these and have fewer unwanted emails cluttering your inbox.
