Create video pins? Sounds easier said than done, right? You probably won’t believe me when I say this but I am NOT creative. Nope. Not the least. Wanna know how bad my “art” is? I got kicked out of Art class when I was in high school. Like full blown kicked out. The art teacher was so mad at me, she had security come to escort me out! And here I was, thinking beauty was in the eye of the beholder!!Continue reading “Create Video Pins Easily with Canva”
Making money on Pinterest can really be simple once you sit down and determine a few things. There are so many different ways that you can use Pinterest. I, for one, like to use it to generate revenue. Part of that is through lead generation. Yes, I love lead generation! I am currently using Pinterest to gain new skin care clients. I have them opt-in for a free skin care consultation where I gather contact information to follow-up. From there, I then send them a list of products that I currently offer to solve their issues.Continue reading “How to Make Money on Pinterest”
Pinterest SEO is one of the most important factors of having an effective Pinterest marketing strategy. Stats show that Pinterest drives over 1600x more traffic than Facebook, even though Facebook is the largest social media platform! Because Pinterest functions as a search engine, you can target your ideal audience by focusing on search terms they’re likely to use. Then directing that traffic to your website. This is why using cute captions that you see on Facebook/Instagram/Snapchat/Twitter/Tik Tok won’t work on Pinterest. Check out my list of 12 Pinterest mistakes to avoid here.
Though there are some design recommendations such as vertical pins over square, you do not need to have the best looking pin to drive traffic to your website. You can do this by optimizing your content for the search engine.Continue reading “Pinterest SEO: Test Your Marketing Strategy”

The secret to my Pinterest marketing strategy:
Curating content is a big piece of my Pinterest marketing strategy for a number of reasons.
As you all know, I average over 4 million monthly viewers on Pinterest (stats below). I’d be lying if I said it all came from publishing my own content.

Confession: when I first started my Pinterest account, I didn’t have a Pinterest marketing strategy. I also wasn’t one of the early adopters so I didn’t have a bunch of followers just because I placed my stake in the sand early on. I had to start from scratch. Probably the same thing you’re doing right now. I was on the platform, had no sense of direction much less any knowledge of how to actually use Pinterest for business. Another moment of truth: I didn’t even know you could use Pinterest for business.
I stumbled upon its capabilities by mistake. I pinned a blog years before. Had forgotten all about it! As I was looking at my blog stats, I realized the pin was still driving traffic to my blog years later — despite the facts: I wasn’t on the platform much, didn’t even know how to really use the platform and didn’t have a bunch of followers to do the work for me. It caused me to take a second look at Pinterest.Continue reading “3 Things You Must Do to Have a Killer Pinterest Marketing Strategy”
Listen to this blog:
Every time I talk to someone about Pinterest marketing strategy, I usually get mixed reactions. After they realize Pinterest isn’t just for recipes and DIYs, it’s followed by “I don’t even know how to use it.”
I tell every entrepreneur, small business owner, coach and consultant that they need to be on Pinterest.
Pinterest is great for reaching people while they decide what to buy or even what to do next. Most people go to Pinterest to research, plan, find inspiration or a solution to a specific problem. About 97% of searches on Pinterest are unbranded meaning they’re not looking for a specific brand or product, they’re looking for a solution. Let your solution be the one they find.Continue reading “Forget About Pinterest Followers: Launch Your Pinterest Marketing Strategy Now”
What is Pinterest?
Before we talk about Pinterest marketing strategy, let’s talk about what is Pinterest first. Pinterest is a search engine. It’s meant for discovery. This is where people go to find solutions, ideas and inspiration.
The internet is swarming with new content each and everyday.
Think of Pinterest as “the best of the best on the internet.” It’s a way for users to bookmark what they’ve found to be helpful.
What does this mean for you as an entrepreneur or marketer?
If they pin your content, you are gaining credibility and authority which will strengthen your marketing strategy. Word-of-mouth advertising will always be
effective! If someone is pinning your content, they’re endorsing you so their friends, family and followers can discover you as well. You are increasing your total exposure. Pinterest is the perfect way to drive traffic to your site in order to generate more leads and business.
One way to get the ball rolling is to make sure that YOU are pinning your content.
Currently, I average over 4 million monthly viewers per month on Pinterest with close to a 9% engagement rate! I’ve used Pinterest to drive traffic to my blog, e-commerce site, appointment booking sites, lead capture pages and even Youtube videos. The possibilities really are endless. If you’re thinking you don’t have time to learn about another social media site, trust me, I was just like you but this is where Pinterest has proven to be worth it many times over!
