Do you want to get more from your Pinterest marketing?
Are you looking to get more traffic, pins and repins?
If you want to make the most of Pinterest, you need to create images.
A great image can increase traffic, get you more pins and repins and improve your presence on Pinterest.
Below are 5 tips to help you create a Pinterest-friendly image.
#1: Use Relevant Labels on Your Images
Great Pinterest marketing starts with the images you publish on your blog or website. One of the first things you need to do is use a relevant label for the images you publish.
When someone pins an image from your website or blog post, the label that automatically appears in the description is the name you give your image. When you give your image a good name, it’ll automatically have a good description when someone pins it.
This is because people like to be engaged with images.
The good thing about Pinterest is that every new post is an image around which a lot of engagement can be driven. So there’s great potential to drive a lot of engagement on this social media network.
Here are 6 ways to drive more engagement with images on Pinterest.
#1: Run Competitions
People love taking part in competitions, whether it’s to win a coupon, money, get their two minutes of fame or just for fun.
On Pinterest, you can run competitions where the winner is the user who pins the best pictures or has the Pinterest board with the best collection of pins. You could also do something creative like Peugeot Panama.
Peugeot Panama takes a picture of one of their cars and divides it into pieces. They pin one of these pieces of the picture onto a Pinterest board and ask their followers to pin the rest of the pieces onto one of their boards and share it with Peugeot Panama.
Their Pinterest followers have to go to Peugeot’s Facebook page or website to find the missing pieces of the picture. Usually the first 5 people to complete the picture win a prize.
Are you wondering how Pinterest could increase your blog readership?
Pinterest drives more traffic to websites than YouTube, Reddit, Google Plus and LinkedIn combined according to new research.
With this in mind, here are six easy steps for tapping the power of Pinterest to drive more traffic to your blog.
#1: Choose the Best Blog Posts to Pin
You don’t need to pin every blog post on Pinterest. You’ll get better results if you selectively pin your blog posts on subjects that already have an audience on Pinterest.
This means you need to do a little research on Pinterest to find if people are already pinning items on your blog post topics.
