Whether you are an individual or business – you can benefit from using Pinterest. When I first signed up for Pinterest I was kind of confused, but it was at a time where the site was fairly new. I always forgot to Pin sites I wanted to add to my relevant boards. But fast forward a year later, I can’t imagine NOT using Pinterest. It’s my online board of reference for all sorts of things – recipes, inspiring quotes, DIY projects and things I can do with my kids. Why would you want a presence on Pinterest? It’s simple – to get your content out to the masses. Many people use Pinterest – even my mom uses Pinterest! and adding your content here can be to your benefit.
Use Pinterest to Promote Your Content
You can pretty much create a Pinterest board for anything. At first I used Pinterest for inspiration, but now I’m using it to promote my own content on relevant boards I’ve created. Make sure you fill in the Description area with relevant keywords because that’s how you’ll get found! On your website, make sure you have a way for people to easily add your content onto their Pinterest board.
Collaborate on Content with Others
If you’re on a team at work or have a group of friends, using Pinterest is great for collaborating ideas. I personally used Pinterest to plan my baby shower with my mom and sister. We added pins to the board of ideas for decorating, food and games. It definitely was a great way to show each other ideas and easy to access since we all had Pinterest accounts.
Create Captivating Images for your Content
Having really great imagery for your content makes your content more “pinnable.” It also makes your content appealing for others on Pinterest to check the content out and re-pin it on their own board. When you create images, always include your website URL, which will brand that image to your website or blog.
Pinterest can be quite addicting once you get the hang of it. Why not maximize your time effectively? Let’s follow each other’s boards! You can never follow too many people – you never know what you will inspire you.
