In this class The Six Sisters' talked about the Power of Pinterest and how they receive 80% of their traffic and page views through Pinterest! They've mastered the art of pinning and repinning and shared their secrets of success on how to use Pinterest to boost your blog posts and increase traffic. Here is a recap of the class:
Pinterest Fun Facts
-80% of Pinterest users are female
-50% of users have children
-average income of Pinterest users is $100,000+
The Sisters' advised all bloggers to do the following:
-use the name of your blog as your profile
-keep two seperate accounts a personal and a business
-put the URL of your site in your personal and business profiles
-connect Pinterest account with Facebook and Twitter
The Sisters' talked about how to utilize your boards and to do this you want to make the names and titles of your boards be creative but also try to incorporate your blog name into the board name. For an example: "your blog name" recipes. The more boards you have the more exposure you'll get. Did you know that boards show up in search results instead of pins?
When you're writing your post it's so crucial to make sure you have picture you can pin that describes what your post is about. If you don't have a picture then create one! You can do this by creating a collage by using PicMonkey or ipccy. When you do this you want to make sure there is a pin it button available on your site, so your readers can be reminded to pin your content! When you write your posts you need to make sure you pin EVERY POST! Make sure you put your blogs URL into each of the pin descriptions, keep these short and precise. You'll want to use hashtags to catergorize your pins. For an example, if you pin a chicken casserole dish, here are some hashtags you could use: #recipe #chicken #dinner #maindish #poultry #casserole.
PICTURES ARE VERY IMPORTANT! You need to watermark each of your pictures. By doing this your claiming that this picture belongs to you. It's sad that our world has come to this but you will find that if you don't watermark your pictures people will steal them and use them :( A great suggestion the Sisters' had is if you have pictures from older posts that aren't great. Make it a priority to re shoot those pictures, upload them to your post, add a pin it button to the post, and pin the new picture to Pinterest. The Sisters' did this with all of their old blog posts and saw a lot of new traffic from this.
