You just may. Here’s the thing, people are ADDICTED! It is a really smart idea to be where customers or potential customers are. Pinterest allows you to be in front of people in a very social, visual way – so if you have a visual product, this could be a super fun opportunity for your business.
Just in case you need some background: Pinterest is a virtual bulletin board that allows users to share images/links they find interesting or inspiring. Once shared, these images become “Pins” that can be placed on thematic “boards” (home, books, health, shopping, etc) that users can customize for any topic. Once something is pinned, it can then be “repinned” by other Pinterest users.
I always coach my clients: be the RESOURCE!!! By Pinning info you share it with your followers, the better the info, the more likely it will be Repinned, giving you digital cache.
Here are some ideas on using this latest social marketing tool:
Create a business Pinterest account
Pin things related to your business
example: you sell FirePits – pin outdoor furniture, cool landscaping, cozy blankets, food you can eat outside, etc.
Add images of your new products or services (with links to your website).
Put your name on your photos, like my favorite uber blogger Slim Paley has recently done, this way people see the image and know you deserve all that credit!
Be organized (ugh, one more thing to keep neet) – but we all know people don’t have enough time to figure out how your mind works – give it to them in a logical format.
example of how a women’s clothing store could create boards: pants, dresses, casual, accessories, handbags, etc.
Make it easy for people to PinIt, use their Goodies for html codes which you can embed on your site.
Find people and businesses are related and follow them and share their content.

Recently I connected with New York City Comedian Jenn Welch who was gracious enough to share with me her experience with Periscope for a blog post on the topic. I learned a lot from Jenn and researching Periscope and one big take away was that there are lots of different ways to your grow your audience. […]
I am running into just as many people who have NOT heard of Periscope as those who LOVE the new(ish) platform so let me begin by telling you a little bit about Periscope in case you haven’t begun using it yet. The start up behind the App was purchased by Twitter in March for $100 MILLION! […]
You may have noticed the trend with having a logo appear as a transparent layer over a hero image on a homepage. Personally I love the look and can’t think of a better example than in the Cafe Child Theme (which you can download for free and use it with the Divi Theme). I recently used […]
I see this question all the time in the Divi Users Facebook Group and figured I would post the options that I find easiest to use. First, you can edit the php files. This isn’t particularly complicated, but it can be scary for some if you are not comfortable with the Editor files. Note: you […]
Infographics have been around for a while and honestly, I still love them. If you are visual person like me, an infographic is a great way to consume information in snippets and the images are pretty much always more interesting that just a bullet list. Infographics are also a terrific way to share your story or […]
