Okay, I’m sure you know of it and you probably use it but let’s get back to the basics and then let’s kick it up a notch (wait for it, wait for it….)
Continue reading for the ‘kick it up a notch’ part.
I hope you find this Pinterest-ing 🙂
Pinterest Back to the Basics:
Here’s your handy guide so print it, clip it to a clip board, use it as a reference when designing a Pinterest profile and boards for your client. Honestly, it’s not a complete guide whatsoever. It’s to show that even if your business doesn’t include tangible products you too can change those words into images. (Google : turning words into images)
That is just a starter! I used Microsoft Publisher and saved it as a GIF file (done).
You can turn your business words into images too!
I will not pretend to be an expert at Pinterest. I am not. I do have an account and I’ve tried to make attractive boards. Although, the time consumption to keep it looking neat and tidy (organized) is my main reason for it not looking the way the pro’s say it should.
So, I’m not the expert but Kim Garst Boom Social is. Kim states, “86% of user’s on Pinterest are women.” What do you think? What has been your experiences?
A few things I do know as a fact is building your profile it’s a must to be as attractive as possible.
A few tips for building your profile:
1.Use headshot, not logo (people buy from people)
2.Make your name easy to find (short and concise)
3.Add links to social networks (integrate)
4.Add keywords to you bio (SEO)
5.Link to Facebook: find friends (must)
6.Link to Twitter: find followers (must)
7.Let your personality shine (authentic)
Okay, now you have the basics from me. Now, grab a beverage, mute your phone and listen in as Kim Garst describes how and why Pinterest is her #2 of social media platforms for business (wait for it…wait for it….) You don’t want to miss her interview during the IBM Summit 2012. It’s engaging and real! Watch it now:
Introducing Kim Garst Boom Social. Kim was recently named by Forbes as one of the Top 50 Social Media Influencers.
My final thought:
“Evaluate exactly which social platforms are working for your business and ‘can’ the rest – at least don’t spend an enormous amount of time on the ‘others.’ It’s a personal/professional decision”
