You know what they say about assuming... well, I assumed that promoted pins showed up anywhere it seemed logical for them to appear. That is NOT the case - it's based on targeting, and that targeting has a huge impact on what you'll pay as well.
I included an infographic to help you plan your promoted pin campaigns. Enjoy!

A guest post for +Kristen Levine . This one could easily have been 10K words!
Pinterest is a search and discovery engine with 100 million pinners saving 2 billion pins a month! And they're looking to spend money.

While there are many elements that influence your search ranking on Pinterest, perhaps the simplest to work with is keywords. Keywords do matter on Pinterest and there are at least 11 places you should put them!

Pinterest search allows you to get your content out to people who don't yet follow you. But how can you get your pins to show up?

Now, why would #Pinterest  make it harder for big companies to give them lots of money for #promotedpins  ? 
Reflecting the way users are using the platform, Pinterest prioritizes promoted pin advertising support.

Promoted pins - what are they? Who should try them? What option should you try and how can you target? So many questions and +Jeff Sieh and I tackled all of them in this fun discussion.
 
“The best product pins: they're beautiful, they're actionable, they're interesting.”

I think anyone who went to #SMMW16 will tell you that LIVE VIDEO was all the rage. And for good reason. My thoughts as I try to process what I learned...

Inbound Marketer and HubSpotter with a penchant for pups and living an active lifestyle.
Introduction
I spend way too much time at my computer.  Fortunately, my dogs insist on a long daily walk and I do volunteer work a couple of times a week.  Gotta stay balanced! Really loving my new place in Wilmington, NC!

I remember our first Texas Instruments computer.  From the moment I tried it, sitting on shag carpet in the early 80s, I was hooked.  The ONE computer class I took in High School was the only one offered, but I did get 102 in the class!  Since then it's been mostly  trial and error.  Lots of trial, some error, but it's always rewarding.

Sometimes I forget that I'm tall.  Six feet tall, to be exact.  Then someone walks up to me and says, "You're tall!" and I have to choke back the smart comments I'd really like to make and just agree with them!

Living in Texas after growing up in New England was interesting.  I did expect more cowboys and horses, to be honest. Now I'm back to the east coast in Wilmington, NC. It seems the perfect compromise!

These days, I do some web design, mostly in WordPress, inbound marketing, and a lot of social media.  I'm open to collaborations and love a good ideas session. Get in touch!

The office staff was nice enough. The guy who came out the close the pool broke a piece of the skimmer, and rather than telling me about it, tossed it on the ground, as he did with the wrapping for the pool cover. There was ZERO instruction given and so in the spring, the water on the top of the cover caused the lining of the pool to fall in. I've had nothing but problems with local pool service companies and while at least these guys will call you back, they certainly don't HAVE your back.

Leslie and her staff were great! She really listens to what you want and need. AND, she'll tell you if someone else can help you for less money. She and her staff are a real pleasure, and had I not moved out of state, I never would have changed agencies!

The portabella mushroom sandwich, the tortilla soup and the italian cream cake. Oh, and the herbal iced tea. Love this place.

I took my car to SLIX because of a badly dented front fender and deeply gouged rear fender. For a reasonable price, they made it look brand new. Maybe it's not a big deal, but I was very impressed that they were able to match my unusual paint color so perfectly. I would absolutely recommend them.
