How To Get Started With Pinterest
Do you have a blog? Are you using Pinterest to promote your blog posts? Let me help you with some tips for getting started with Pinterest and more importantly, how to use this platform to drive traffic to your site.
If you run a blog, either in its own entirely or attached to your business website, it is quite important to use Pinterest. You probably know this, but just haven’t invested the time to organise your account or it just confuses you. This used to be me!
Through managing clients accounts I have learnt the fundamentals of getting started with Pinterest. These tips below will help you have a well curated and established profile, ready to attract clients and direct them to your website.
Have an on-brand profile picture
Add keywords to your profile name
Create an engaging profile bio stating what you do and how you help people, remember to include your targeted keywords
Create 15 - 20 boards which are relevant to your brand and niche
Each board needs a board description, including as many targeted keywords as possible
Have at least 25 pins on each board, try increasing this to 100 once you get going
Create a board which only has the pins related to your blog posts, this should also be the first board at the top of your profile
Create 2 - 4 pins for each blog post: they should always be vertical and have text overlay on the image describing the post and engaging the client
Make sure all your own pins have full descriptions filled with keywords and a CTA
Once you have pinned all your posts into your specific board just for your blog, re-pin them into all your other relevant boards
Create cover board images
Set up Tailwind and start scheduling pins
Find group boards and request to join
Join Tailwind Tribes
This is just a quick list for you to get started with Pinterest. It takes time to get everything set up, but once you have a more established looking account it will be able to grow, driving traffic to your site and benefiting your business.
