12 Most Strategic Ways to Use Pinterest for Marketing
Pinterest is fun and boosts creativity but at it’s social media heart, +Pinterest is marketing. Very smart marketing!

Are you wondering how you can use Pinterest to market your small business, company, blog, or to promote your next book or product? Visual marketing on Pinterest is a low-key, self-paced way to reach people and get the word out.

Having a strategy for your Pinterest activities will help you reach your goals and objectives. You have those in place, right? Here are my tips and strategic ways to use Pinterest for marketing:

1. Create boards with keywords in your title
2. Use the description to spread your ideas
3. Create vertical images to maximize your real estate
4. Build relevant links back to your website or blog

I can't stress this enough:  *have a pinnable image on every post that you publish*

12 Most doesn’t have a big image but does have an image that pins with each post. I like to create a bigger image of 735 x 1102 because Pinterest loves tall, vertical images. I’ll create a big image, pin the large image, and then share the pin with the blog link. 

How are you using Pinterest for marketing?

12 Most Powerhouse Habits of Social Media Pros by +Becky Gaylord 

"What’s the secret sauce of social media? Well, it’s not just one recipe. After all, far too many apps, sites and tools exist for there to be a definitive source of success on social media. But it seems the pros share some common habits." From Becky:

1. Help
It doesn’t matter whether they have 1,000 followers or 100,000, social media pros often help others. If it could be harnessed, the karma flying around the Twittersphere (and on G+ and Pinterest and so on) might just be sufficient to advance all humanity closer to world peace.

2. Share fairly
The pros never steal. They don’t have to because they’ve figured out that it’s not actually content that’s king. It is the creators of content that rule the kingdom. Social media stars create amazing content. And they also share content liberally, crediting generously as they press the words: publish, pin or post.

3. Thank
The smoothest social media folks are also among the kindest. Just check out the Twitter streams of those with hordes of followers eager to sop up the social savvy. Tweets from the pros often contain thanks and kind words for others.

4. Remember
To have an effective social presence, you need to be mindful of others. Social media pros remember what it was like not to know that RT stood for ReTweet (or to not know what retweet meant!) I think it is, in part, their own memory of feeling like a newbie that keeps the social media pros so generous with their tips and advice.

12 Most Earth-Shattering Realizations that Every Writer Needs to Come to by +Kathleen Krueger 

"Whether it’s starting your blog or publishing your first book, every writer has mixed emotions of excitement and trepidation when it comes to releasing their words to the world. You put your heart and soul into your writing. When you finally have the opportunity and courage to make the big leap, you wait with bated breath for the world’s reaction.

If you haven’t taken the time to sit under the counsel of experienced mentors, you will eventually come to these earth-shattering realizations on your own. Perhaps reading them here will lessen the blow and give you some perspective.

1. Writing is work
As much you may love to write, serious writing requires work. It requires writing when you don’t feel like writing. It requires thoughtful consideration of your writing from the reader’s perspective. Does it make sense? What haven’t I told them that they all they need to know?

2. You will write some really bad stuff
Even the best of writers write some really bad stuff — we don’t see it because it gets cut out or improved during the revision process. Don’t be afraid of doing bad writing. Get it out of your system so that the really good stuff can follow.

3. Revision is required
The first draft is never the final draft. This is part of the work of writing. We write, we revise and we revise some more."
