Thanks for joining us! I can't wait to show you all the ways you can use Pinterest to promote just about anything.

My name is Jason Buff, and I have worked in Graphic Design and Marketing for over 15 years. In fact, I will be many of you have come from my Photoshop or Illustrator classes. But what I want to discuss is something that I have only come to discover in recent years. The amazing power of Pinterest.

Here's how the class is structured.

Section 1: A Quick Overview of Pinterest

Here I will give you a quick overview of my pinterest account and give you a behind the scenes look at what I do every day to get people to my website. I will also show you how to get a new account started.

Section 2: Building Boards That Get Followers

In this section we talk about how to quickly build boards and find pins that will start generating followers. It is incredibly easy to start building boards of hundreds of pins that will grow your authority within hours.

Section 3: Finding the Right Followers

In this section we focus on how to pinpoint the people that will be interested in your product. Although it may look good and feed your ego, having tons of followers is really pointless unless. What's more important is that you need to find the people who will want to interact with you and want what you're promoting.

Section 4: Advanced Pinterest Techniques

This is where we start to learn more advanced techniques. This section will be updated as I find more and more techniques to help you grow. I will also discuss some of the tools you can use to automate Pinterest.

Thanks for joining, now let's get started!!

Section 1: A Quick Overview of Pinterest

I know you want to get going, so here's a really quick overview of Pinterest in action. I'll show you how I link pins to my website and give you a basic overview of the way Pinterest works.


You can pretty much skip this one if you don't feel like a description of how to open an account. But I wanted to make sure that part of the process was taken care of.

Section 2: Building Boards That Get Followers

The basics of creating your first board with a dummy account.


I walk you through the process of building a niche board quickly.


One thing that most new Pinterest users overlook is the importance of presenting yourself well. So I discuss how you can make your thumbnails look nice by picking your picture and organizing your most important Pinterest boards.


A quick tip to show you how to add a custom image to your board.

Section 3: Finding the Right Followers

You will want to make sure you're following people who meet 2 criteria. First, they should be followers who are likely to follow you back. Second, they should be interested in the product or service you offer or at least be interested in your general niche.

Who To Follow: Part 2

One of the quickest ways to grow followers fast is to find the influencers in your niche. That means finding people who have a similar category and not only following them, but the people that follow them. As my friend Scott McMahon of Film Trooper always says, It's much faster to jump in front of the parade that has already started than starting your own parade.
