Do You Use Pinterest for Your Business?
Pinterest has only been around since 2010. It is a networking site with a difference. You can share your pictures and almost any picture you see on the web. You can create different types of collections and people can share your pictures with others.
Pinterest has been identified as a favourite site for women and a lot of people have been very successful in using this tool as part of their marketing and money making campaign.
Watch the video below for the 3 simple reasons why you should think about using Pinterest.
3 Beginner’s Steps to Using Pinterest
These are the 3 most basic things you should do if you are thinking about adding Pinterest to your social networking campaign.
#1 – Add a Pinterest Plugin to Your Blog
Back in the day, like a year ago, (lol), you used to have to copy and paste images if you wanted them to show up on different sites. Now you can add a Pinterest plugin to your blog and the hard work is done. All you have to do is hover over an image, click the “pin it” button and it will be transported over to your account.
Set up different collections so that similar images are placed together.
Fans of Pinterest will also love the ease with which they can add your fun images to their own Pinterest collections.
#2 – Share Your Pictures
Now that you have the plugin all set up on your blog, it is time to share your pictures. Add them to your own account. Once you connect with other Pinterest users, they will like your images and share them for you.
The great thing is that your images are connected to your website. So if someone clicks on the image, they can find out where the pictures originated and end up on your site. This is another way to get traffic to your site.
#3 – Share Other People’s Pictures
The more you interact with Pinterest and other pinners, the more success you will have with people viewing your images and visiting your site. It is always a good idea to share the love. Find images that you like, which are similar to your own, and add them to your collection.
Where I Am At with Pinterest
I have to be honest and say that I know very little about this site. I have added the plugin, I have shared my pictures and other peoples pictures. Every now and then I get email notifications that someone has re-pinned one of my pictures , that they are following me or they have left a comment underneath an image.
I don’t know how I am to react to this so I end up doing nothing 🙁
I have read stories about how people are making a great income using this resource but I think that you have to know quite a bit about how it works for it to be effective.
At the moment I am happy to use it as another way to share my little messages out there through the medium of Art, or whatever you want to called the little images I add to my posts 🙂

Is that how it works, cos I really don’t know. I understand that Pinterest is a powerful tool and maybe I should take the time to learn more. There are plenty of courses out there. Maybe you could point me in the right direction.
