Many companies ask me is Pinterest good for my business. Now, I like to share with you in this quick module that yes, your business will be perfect on Pinterest. Now, of course it does make sense for some companies. For instance, if you're in the industry of fashion, or art, or parenting photography, home décor, they are perfect to be on Pinterest, but if you're not quite sure, here are few questions I'd like to go through with you.

First of all, does your brand fall into one of the Pinterest categories?

A Pinterest category is something that you can allocate your pin to. If we go to pinterest.com/categories, here I can show you that there are a number and number of categories that you can be part of.

How to apply a Pinterest Social Media Strategy for your Business.

The next step is that you need to define your business goals. Is it lead generation? Do you want more brand awareness? Do you want to increase customer engagement? Of course, every business wants to increase sales. Do you want to drive more traffic to your website? Do you want to market a new line of products? Or is it all the above?

The next step in any kind of strategy is really to understand who your target audience is. Watch the lesson above to learn more.

Section 2: Where are you Now?
05:49

Here is the process for setting up your Pinterest Business Account. Here are some tips to make sure you have your profile and boards set up and ready to go.

I also have a look at some other business accounts to see how they are set up too.

If you need help with verifying you account go to: https://business.pinterest.com/en/confirm-your-website.

I also found this wordpress plugin, This plugin allows you to verify your website with Pinterest by inserting a meta tag on your front page (no coding required). Go to https://wordpress.org/plugins/pinterest-verify/

05:34

Have you ever read the book 'How to Win Friends and Influence People'? Well with social media marketing the same rules apply. Now when you think of Pinterest we have a few rules that I recommend, a little bit of social media etiquette that I recommend you follow. First of all having read this book jab jab right hook. It's a boxing analogy, think about it again jab jab right hook.

Pinterest is all about sharing first. Share share share promote your blog post, your service, your pin through your pinnable image. You don't want to be constantly promoting your own pins. Think of sharing first. Share share share promote your own pin. Think of that when you're online on Pinterest.

06:25

How to conduct a Pinterest Audit with my ten point traffic light report. Watch the video and learn the steps I take to review your Pinterest profile and Website.

Section 3: Where are you going?
11:42

This module I want to go through with you how to use Pinterest to research your target market. If you have a business, market research is so important and Pinterest gives you so much free data to use to find out what is your target market interested in.

Who are they? Is your market growing? You need to understand their social trends, their demographics, their gender, family type, it is so important to keep an eye on your market so you're aware of any changes over time and so your strategy remains relevant and targeted and up-to-date.

I wanted to go through a few other things about Pinterest. Pinterest is incredibly valuable in regards to consumer insights. It shows us what people like through re-pinning, through liking and through commenting. The main purpose of market research is to learn as much as possible about your customer. Pinterest is a fantastic way to display what customers like, what they already own, and what they want in the future.

Here are some strategies you can use right now to discover what your customers are liking.

06:45

How to use Pinterest to profile your competitors.

If you are in business, I recommend you get a feel and understanding who else is competing for the same target market. Who are the sources of competitors? I want you to do a bit of a scan to have a feel for businesses competing in related products, in the same market. You want to look for businesses using related technologies and solutions. You want to find businesses that are already targeting your prime marketing segment but with even unrelated products as well.

Other sources of competitors include businesses from other geographic areas, with similar products and even new businesses organized by former employees or managers of existing companies. To find these competitors, I recommend you do Google searches, and also I think you'll gather a bit of a feel of your own customer base, who else they are searching for to get that product or solution. Watch more in the training here.

03:32

Who should you follow on Pinterest? Here are some strategies of who to Follow to maximise your business on Pinterest.

Section 4: How will you get there?
02:11

There are 3 Rules of Engagement on Pinterest.

Like Facebook, the rules of engagement is Like, Comment and Share.

With Pinterest it is Like, Comment and Re Pin.

The more you engage the more people will engage with you.

  1. Constantly re-pin on other people's pins
  2. Keep liking other peoples pins
  3. Comment on other people's pins
  4. And send a THANK YOU to people for pinning and re-pinning your Pins

The Thank you comment takes it one step further and mostly far overlooked. If you see someone has re-pinned your Pin, then make the effort to go to his or her Board, and make a comment saying “thanks” for repining.

I also like to Message new Followers with a Thank you as well.

Creating images that will be noticed and shared is a worthwhile investment of your time. Here are some tips in the video above for creating the perfect Pinterest images to get your brand notices.

Besides a great image to attract attention it is also important to encourage users to take action and click through to the website behind it. The most common reasons someone might click on image are:

• To find out more about the product, service, business or information

• To complete the call of action like download a product or optin to your email list

• To purchase your product.

Keep this in mind next time your create your next pin. Watch more information in the video above. Here are some resources mentioned:

Image Creation Tools

Canva

As mentioned in the above video - Canva.com is one of my favourite editing tools. No matter what size you need to design on social media, Canva has the template ready. You can search and purchase their stock image direct or upload your own. They have heaps of templates to inspire and get your started.

Pic Monkey

Pic Monkey.com is another tool which can help you create images. It also has tools to help you edit and touch up photos but features to filter your photos. Have a play and edit for free on the trial version.

Tailwind is the official Pinterest Marketing and Analytics tool. Here is my tutorial on how you can leverage Tailwind to give you an insight on your marketing for your business.

04:36

Tailwind helps you schedule your Pins as well as optimises your account to make sure you are pinning at the right times during the week. Here is a short tutorial on how to use it.

02:40

Pinterest messaging is a feature I believe to be totally underutilized in Pinterest. Pinterest enabled the new feature as a way to make pinning personal and enables you to send a private message to your followers.

What really sets the system apart from Facebook Messenger or Twitter's direct messaging system is that Pinterest Messaging is more focused on engaging in conversations in a visual manner within Pinterest. This is particularly helpful in simplifying complex projects that are too hard to explain through words, as well as saving users the hassle of sending picture attachments back and forth. (Imagine explaining a hairdo tutorial in words!) Be it text, links, pins or entire boards, Pinterest users can share as much content as they want without losing track of the conversation or compromising their privacy.

Here are more creative ways to use Pinterest in your marketing. Take your inspiration from the following Brands:

Target (Seasons and Catalogue Boards)

Starbucks (Loyalty cards)

Capital One (Go Local, Christmas Campaign - the 12 Days of Pinterest)

Lauren Curtis (Video Makeup tutorials)

Coupons App (Coupon pinboards: For businesses that publish coupons across the web, creating a pinboard of those coupons is a great way to share them with a wider audience.)

Product Demos: Do you own a restaurant? Make a video for each of your menu items and pin them. Photos of food do exceptionally well on Pinterest. Since images far outnumber videos on Pinterest, imagine how well your video will do.

How-To Videos: Pinterest is a great way to share expertise, especially in the DIY, crafts and cooking categories. A contractor could create a huge following with a video series of simple household repair tips.

Video Tours: If you're a realtor or an interior designer, Pinterest is a great place to show off a beautiful home. Landscapers can also show off their work.

Realestate.com.au: Boards by colour (weddings, birthdays, home)

1. Create a Video Gallery Pinners aren't only limited to pinning images; they can pin videos, too! Create a pinboard of some of the interesting videos your business produces interspersed with relevant images.

2. Create boards by season – Christmas, Halloween, Easter boards and Valentines day

3. Coupon pinboards: For businesses that publish coupons across the web, creating a pinboard of those coupons is a great way to share them with a wider audience.

If you are building an email list or want to sell affiliate products here are some strategies to help you leverage the free traffic from Pinterest.

First of all Pinterest no longer accepts affiliate links or short links. So if you had pins with those links in the past the pins will remain, but the links are now blocked.

So how do Affiliate Marketers monetize Pinterest?

The main strategy is to curate your own pins which link back to a bridge page, optin page or your own blog post which then links to a sales page or ecommerce site for affiliate commissions.

Instructor Biography

Lisa Devereaux, Creator of Pincredible Pinterest Marketing

My name is Lisa and for the past fifteen years I have built a career in Commercialisation, Strategic Management and Internet Marketing. I live in Brisbane, Australia and have a Bachelor degree in Science and Masters in Technology Management.

I am a mum to gorgeous 5 year old identical twin daughters. I'm amazed how kids now grow up with technology at their finger tips to facilitate learning and the A,B,Cs.

I am passionate about taking an innovative idea to market and with the growth of digital marketing, social media and outsourcing I believe anyone with the motivation and vision can be a online entrepreneur.

But it wasn't always that easy. I earned my stripes as a blogger back in 2008. Although I was immersed in traditional commercialisation in the offline world (market research, product development, intellectual property, raising capital and tradition company structures) it wasn't until I jumped online to see how I could target my ideal customer that I suddenly had learn a whole lot of new skills that weren't taught in my Business Masters degree I had graduated from, the year before.

I learnt everything I could from the technical angle of web design, social media, network marketing, and affiliate marketing. But learning the technical parts of marketing is only a tiny piece of the puzzle. I needed to learn about nurturing an entrepreneurial mindset needed in the virtual world and this was achieved by following online entrepreneurial podcasts, blogs and books and maximising connections by attending Internet marketing events and coaching. Although the virtual world opens up so many opportunities it is at events that really build connections with like-minded people.

So I soon started working with different online businesses with both digital products and companies transitioning from a traditional business to selling products online. The biggest question we ask would be, “Where did does your ideal avatar or customer hangout online?"And I am here to share with you how to find your ideal customer on Pinterest!
