What I have seen using Pinterest for my business in just two months:
If I pint several of my pictures at the same time (same afternoon), just the first one has more repints, I guess just the first one has more exposure than the others. So It’s better to pint one by one, day by day on each board.
The time that works better for me to see my pints repinted at the same moment are bettwen 6 – 8 AM and 7 – 9 PM.
I have been searching on other boards, using key words to find boards that have similar items or boards of people that like or collect the style of items that I have, then I follow them, so they can see that I’m here and what I have on my boards and search more if they like my items or repint them. It’s like I’m a Panoramic just crossing over the way of my nich.
Also I have tried to search more on who is following my business boards, if they have something similar, where are they, what else do they like, trying to understand a little more my market. And I think that we can get a very helpfull information about the consumer behavior of our own maket. It has been a nice free Marketing tool to understand the market and to work as a Panoramic
And because it was recomended to add more items and boards not just related to the business, I added some boards of general interest. And the most honest and everyday working pins have been the Popular Mascots, I don’t know who is winning right now, The Yankies, Red Sox, Ducks, every day someone repint one of them. Also the puppies have been very well accepted. But it’s just for fun, it doesn’t help on my business.
The only bad thing that I did, was that I pinted my items and I took them from my ebay page, and some of them were in auction, so the actual URL that they have on Pinterest is not working, I have to repinted them again of if they where repinted, I have to change the URL on eachone.
Pinterest has helped me on the Organic Search (if someone else repinted my items, it helps also on the organic search). I just have to watch for the time that I expend on it (an apple every day could be healtier than 30 apples once a month) .
