As you know one of the top social sites these days is Pinterest. My hope is you are using Pinterest to promote your creative business. Your customers are there and your business needs to be there as well.
I have one question for you, Do you just pin and leave?
In this article I am going to share with you 5 steps for getting more repins after you pin.
Step 1. Hash Tags, Titles, and Keywords
Make sure you are using hashtags in your pin descriptions. A hashtag (#) on Pinterest will help your pins be found in the Pinterest search.
Just as important as hashtags, be sure to title your pin correctly and add in keywords in your description.
You can also add a link to your shop, site, or blog that is clickable right in the description.
Step 2. Share your Pins on Facebook other Social Media sites
Sharing your pins on Facebook will help drive traffic to your shop or blog, and will also encourage others to repin your pin.
Head over to your pin board, and click on the pin you want to promote.
Copy the url of the actual pin. Each pin has it’s own unique url.
Paste the url of the pin in your Facebook status. Once Facebook populates the info, you can delete the url of the pin, create a new title, and write a new description.
The same can be done on Google Plus.
Step 3. Ask your favorite blogger to feature your pin!
Bloggers are always looking for good content, so look for a blogger that fits your niche. Look for the contact page or submission page on the blog. Be sure to let the blogger know what you will gladly help promote the article when it is posted.
Step 4. Try out Vrialwoot
Vrialwoot is a free site that helps you get more followers, repins, and likes on your pins. With cool feature like, scheduling pins and pin alerts, this site is a must!
Step 5. Buy a Fiverr Gig
Fiverr is a service based marketplace where freelancers will preform tasks for $5. There are a number of Fiverr gigs available out there for repinning. Make sure you are careful in your gig selection. Pick a person who is more likely to be in your niche. Stay away from people that have very larger following (too good to be true!).
Remember, your Pinterest following will grow and you will start to see traffic and sales if you are consistent with pinning.
