Chances are, if you're reading this blog, you are considering Pinterest for your business!
However many people haven't even thought of Pinterest as an option for publicising their business or selling their product.
My training course, Pinterest -The Basics, is my most popular course and is great for getting people started in the world of Pinterest!
But today, I'm giving you 5 basic tips FOR FREE to make a success of your Pinterest journey!
1 - Analytics!
If you're using Pinterest for your business, you will need the Analytics feature to be able to track your progress and see what's working best for you. To get Analytics, you will need to convert your Pinterest account into a business account, or, if you don't have an account yet, make sure you create it as a business one when you set it up.
2 - It's Not All About You!
Repin other people's pins too. Build your network; don't be competitive, work with others!
3 - Be Yourself
Make sure your Pins reflect your brand. Pinterest viewers want to see you and your work. If they like one of your pins and that turns out to not reflect your business and who you are, then it's unlikely to turn into a lead or sale
4 - Pin Regularly
Unlike Instagram and Facebook, you should be posting multiple times a day.
5 - Use a Scheduling Tool
If you don't want Pinterest to take over your daily life, then I'd highly recommend a scheduling tool such as Tailwind, although other scheduling tools are available.
Tailwind is a complete game changer. It will not only save you A LOT of time in pinning, but you will be able to use it's in depth analytic tools to really get to the bottom of what's working for you and what isn't.
So, hopefully this blog has at least given you some food for though! But should you need any extra help or something more bespoke for your business, then I run affordable hour long training courses on Pinterest and Tailwind (amongst other things).
