Another goodie from my favored site for all things social media, Social Media Examiner and author Cindy King. Yeah, I'm geeky but I can't know everything about everything, so I rely on trusted people to help. Social Media Examiner is one of them.
Here are seven great tips for tweaking how you do Pinterest to raise your visibility. For specific how-to instructions go read the article, it's very helpful.
- Include Price Tags
Pinterest users have a very high rate of purchases via Pinterest pins, much higher than other social media sites. They aren't just looking for eye candy, they are also ready to buy.
- Use Pin It For Later Links
You can use these types of links to bookmark your blog content on Google+. You "publish a blog post, then pin an image from the article to a board."
- Show Pins to Your Newsletter Readers
This turns your recipient's email inbox into a pinbox.
- Find Popular Group Boards
Group boards (good ones) can help you get more repins, followers, and traffic.
- Promote Your Presence
The free way, by cross-promoting on your other social media platforms.
- Drive Traffic With Blog Boards
Your Pinterest viewers can find all your blog posts in one place.
- Track Pins From Competitor Domains
People who pin stuff from your competitor's websites are likely to pin yours too. The application Pinalerts can help track this.
