Pinterest and its Awesome Sauce
Pinterest is a visual search engine. People from around the world head there to find all kinds of things to help them solve problems like:
- A recipe for tonight’s dinner
- Cleaning hack to get coffee stains out of carpet
- Tips for getting baby to latch on for nursing
- How to make extra money for summer vacation
As you are marketing to your audience, you keep their pain point in mind.
What are they looking for?
What problem do they have?
And, how can you solve that problem?
Once you start here, you will be golden.
Because, Pinterest can drive loads of FREE traffic to your website, business, or brand. And again, this is all FREE, without even diving into their Promoted Pins advertising.
Here are some success tips to get you started…
Pinterest Tips for Success
Treat your Pinterest account professionally, like it’s your job. Make sure you have these parts of your profile complete:
- Bio photo
- Bio description
- Boards (10+)
- Pins (10+ per board)
Your bio photo should be clear and share your brand’s message, whether it be a snappy photo of yourself or your brand logo. You must, must, must have a bio photo.
Next, your bio description should be loaded with keywords, in a natural way. No keyword stuffing here. Explain your mission or purpose, why your brand exists and use your keywords. Do not forget to link your website.
Your boards are so important. There is never such a thing as too many boards. Aim for 25 to start and keep growing them over time. The most successful pinners I see with millions of monthly viewers, including my accounts, have HUNDREDS of boards.
This isn’t too tough to do, especially with group boards.
Join as many relevant group boards as you can. They should be laser-focused on your niche and participate in those boards, both pinning and sharing your pins.
Pins should be vertical, with bright, gorgeous photos. They can have text overlay or not. Many industries do well with both, or one or the other. Like, food pins might fair better with text so the pinner knows what they are looking at. While, home decor pins do perfectly fine with a stunning photo, no text needed.
And these are your quick tips. Now, the templates!
