Many, if not all, of y0u have personally heard, seen, or even raved about the new internet sensation that is swarming the social media industry – Pinterest. I don’t know about you, but it took me a little bit to get on the Pinterest band-wagon. However, once I finally jumped on, I was taken captive by the “Power of Pinning” movement – hook, line, and sinker.
Not only is Pinterest great for finding new recipes, shop gifts, find fashion inspiration, and finding design inspiration – it is great for generating TRAFFIC to your blog or website WHILE having fun at the same time.
A total WIN-WIN if you ask me!
The thing is, when leverage correctly, Pinterest can do AMAZING things for your corner on the world wide web. The key though, is to get in NOW, while the buzz is still growing.
Well, it will take time to learn how to leverage it for your particular industry. So, by the time is has blown up to (or exceeded) the size of Facebook (and it’s not a matter of IF, it’s a matter of WHEN), you will be an established, educated, and a Pinning Veteran.
So, how do you use Pinterest for Business?
Here’s a few tips to get you started:
- Don’t overly self-promote – this is also a Pinterest Guideline – if you have something you are proud of and want to share, by all means – PIN AWAY! But include pins that aren’t just business related. You can organize your pins via boards, to make this easy. Check out Simply Creative’s Pinterest Page - Don’t forget to FOLLOW us
- Pin your products to the coveted gift section for maximum exposure – to do this, simply include the price (ie: Sugar Scrub – $9.00) and it will automatically be place in the gift section. That simple!
- Remember to NETWORK! Treat Pinterest like you would Facebook or Twitter. Get out there and build your community!
