Pinterest Course: How To Use Pinterest For Your Business (Part 2 of 4)

April 11, 2013 1 Comment

Welcome to part two of the Pinterest Course “How To Use Pinterest For Your Business”. In part one of the series we explored Pinterest and the power it has for our business. Today we are going a step further and figure how to brush up your profile on Pinterest in a way that makes others want to follow you. But we also see how to get pictures from your website pinned to Pinterest. In the end that is why we are here, we want to get some traffic from Pinterest. In the third video I’ll show you how to edit and/or change your pin.

As I said, this is a short overview actually. If you really want to learn Pinterest in-depth you need to take a course as Melanie Dunkan offers it, The Power of Pinning {Affiliate Link}.

04. Your Profile On Pinterest

You can add your website to your Pinterest profile and you should really do it. If you have a nice and engaging Pinterest profile, I’m sure your followers will come over.

05. Pin Pictures From Your Own Site

When you pin pictures from your own site make sure you use one which really stands out. You don’t want to get lost in the crowd. I learned that a picture with a banner for example (I show here how to do it in detail) gets many more re-pins as well as likes. Another way to get attention is by using Infographics. I recently ordered an Infographic on Fiverr and those very often shared by pinners because they offer a lot of value. I will talk about infographics in another post but if you want to check out the $5 Fiverr Gig, see here.

06. Change And Edit Your Pins

Sometimes you need to do some cleaning or you want to change the link the pin is pointing to. You can use affiliate links but if Pinterest detects them they are changing them to their own. Therefore, I’d highly recommend a program such as Ninja Affiliate (I use it for these purpose but also to turn keywords into affiliate links). Beside that, Ninja Affiliate {Affiliate Link} also allows you to exchange your link at one central place instead of going through all your posts when a product changes or is no longer available.
