Let me guess something. You started a blog and you loved it. You spent a ton of time generating great content but struggle with getting traffic. Plus you finally realized you better start learning to make some money from your blog before your loved ones told you to stop spending so much time on the computer! Pinterest can be an amazing and free way to get traffic to your blog or website. If you want to get traffic with Pinterest you need to know these secrets.
Would you like to reach this many people?
I’ll show you how!
Once you got your blog all setup to make money you now want a LOT more traffic. You’ve heard people talk about Pinterest but you might be thinking you don’t have enough of your own original content to get started with Pinterest.
It’s not all about your own pins
Did you know that getting traffic from Pinterest is more than just sharing your own Pinterest images? You don’t need a ton of your own pins to start. It’s actually MORE important to have a Pinterest strategy and share other people’s great pins on Pinterest than to share your own content.
Develop your brand’s story
As a business on Pinterest you want to create a Pinterest account that captures the lifestyle of your customer. You want a potential customer to see how your brand fits into their lifestyle. If you sell purses, your target customer would also be interested in other accessories that complete their look. Help the customer see how your product fits into their whole life by repinning other pins they would like.
Repin images that tell your Brand Story
Sharing and building a community matter on Pinterest. If you only share your own content your pins, Pinterest won’t show your pins to as many people. You want to learn to connect with you audience and build a story (interests and desires) of your brand and business. Inspire a lifestyle that your audience will want to share with others.
Repin Quality pins
It’s actually super important to share only quality pins. Pinterest’s algorithm shows pins from pinners with high engagement (clicks through to websites, repins, likes). By pinning great pins your pins get more exposure.
Quality pins have:
- A great visual image – vertical and high quality.
- Keyword description – describes who, what, when or why a user would use it.
- The pin actually links to a reliable source – the website when the pin originated is a valid url.
Pin throughout the day
Pinning throughout the day helps to Get Traffic with Pinterest because your pins reach a wider auditions when users log onto to Pinterest throughout the day. People have reported good results with pinning 15-30 times a day. Setting up a pinning scheduler like Tailwind can let your pins be seen through the day and therefore reach more users.
