Besides Twitter, Pinterest is my second fav social media platform and I cannot wait to connect with fellow pinners. Follow me on Pinterest and drop your comments as well as your account link at the end of the article.
“Pinterest is the world’s catalog of ideas. Our mission is to help people discover the things they love and inspire them to go do those things in their daily lives. Ben Silbermann, Evan Sharp, and Paul Sciarra co-founded Pinterest back in March 2010. Since then, we’ve helped millions of people around the world find recipes, parenting hacks, style inspiration and other ideas to try.”
Did you know?
There are an estimate of 175 million people on Pinterest, 80% on mobile devices & 100 billion ideas to browse from?
For the bloggers out there
I would recommend you start a blog or writer’s board and add all relevant pins (See my Blogger’s Toolbox for inspiration)
Joining a group board is a great way to network with global and active writers
Being an ex-digital content producer for a local publishing company, adapting to digital marketing was essential and a must for fellow content creators. To search for SEO pins: Top of the Pinterest account and type “SEO FOR BLOGGING OR SEO FOR BUSINESS”
Don’t forget to add a short bio with your website link for a further reading and to drive more traffic to your site. Create a profile by visiting the link
Kelly’s tip and rating: Aim for 3 – 5 boards as this will not clutter your profile and easier to browse your pins from fellow pinners.
Pinterest gets 2 thumbs up and an 8.5 / 10
Note: Pinterest is definitely an addictive platform so be careful of wasting precious time & stick to relevant categories.
