Pinterest is just different from other social media sites. Think of it more as a search engine, like Google. Then you will understand that the use of keywords is very important. Consumers, there are looking to discover new products, brands, and make a purchase if they really love something.
Posting attractive pins that resonate with your audience is critical to your Pinterest marketing success. What are the most popular posts of yours on Pinterest? Check your business analytics.
Creating Your Boards
- Name them with search in mind
- Create your first board for your website
- Name it the same as your site
- Description links back to your own content only
- Use keywords to have others find you
Create 15 – 20 boards for different topics in your niche or industry. Think of these boards as curated pins around the topics that are of interest to your audience. Take into account the colors you use on your pins. To find more about colors see this.
Update your board descriptions on a regular basis. Write descriptions for your content you are pinning to your boards
using keywords from your list of keywords that are relevant to that board and its content.
To help with being consistent with your pinning you can use tools to help with finding pins in your niche and automatically pinning them for you. The tool that I like to use is Tailwind. Smarter Visual Marketing Automation of the pinning process.
Tribes (This is brand New on Pinterest) I use it with my Business Tailwind Account.
You will find all the Pins that you and your Tribemates have submitted. You can schedule pins directly from the Tribe
in a few clicks. Easy to do when you submit a pin to your Tribe, other Tribemates see your content so they can share it with their followers. Share with others ( Re-shares) content not just your own.
If you want to see how well your content is doing across the entire Tribe over time, you can always look in the Your Results section of the Tribe.
You’ll see three important metrics here:
- Re-shares: how many times others have re-shared your content from the Tribe.
- Repins: how many extra repins those re-shared Pins have received on Pinterest
- Reach: how much additional reach (potential impressions) your content has received thanks to this Tribe.
With your Pinterest sign up be sure to read about Tribes and the Tribe rules of that tribe. They will be different for each Tribe. You see all your Tribe mates and you can chat with them if you wish to. Tribes are Free for anyone to get started even if you aren’t using Tailwind already.
