You may have read my post on how to create a great Pinterest pin, and now you can see the tools I use for getting great photos, using them in graphics, and then sharing them all over the web!
Pinterest is essential when it comes to blogging and even owning your own online business. But you might think that as long as you’re actually on Pinterest, you’re doing well. Well, that may or may not be the case. The Pinterest images you create and use to showcase your website can make all the difference when getting potential readers to click-through to your site. Here are my tips for creating great-looking Pinterest images that drive traffic and get repins
See, what these writers are telling you to do by deleting low performing pins is good. Pinterest has a way of knowing if your pins are popular or not, and will rank you accordingly. Want your pins to show up to more people and not get hidden deep in the feed? Then your pins will have to have a high number of repins. Pinterest only wants its users to see what’s already popular. So, by deleting low-performing pins, you’ll be able to convince Pinterest to show your pins to a larger audience.
I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again: If you are a blogger or business owner who wanted to establish a strong online presence, Pinterest is a must! But there’s a trick to it. Simply having a few of your own boards isn’t usually enough to build a large online presence. So what can you do to fix that?
When bloggers and website owners think about establishing a brand, they often focus heavily on logos, color palettes, aesthetics, and layouts of their website. But I’m here to tell you that those things are good, and needed, but they will only take you so far. You might use really pretty on photos that will get someone from your audience to click and read your post. They might even sign up for your email list if they find you helpful. But what is it that will make them keep coming back, viewing you as a resource, and telling their friends to check you out?
ONE WORD, MY FRIENDS: COMMUNITY.
As a blogger or business owner, you clearly understand the importance of getting traffic to your site in order to get your content or products actually seen and sold. Well, that doesn’t just happen as soon as you upload it to the web. Getting viewers and customers to actually see your content takes promotion, a ton a which is going to happen on social media. But no blogger or business owner want to be held back from their business by spending hours upon hours every week posting their content to social media. That is where the word automation comes in.
