Pinterest Expert Shares 7 Lazy Pinterest Activities You’re Making
http://bit.ly/1mhhqCM

Are you using Pinterest for business?
Are you doing it “right”?
How do you know you are exactly?

Truth is, most people are not “doing it right” and I’ve studied over 1000 business Pinterest pages.

Okay, so you’re probably thinking I’ve just posted a bunch of pretty pictures so why the heck am I not getting more repins and why aren’t I getting any followers!

Like I tell my clients over and over effectively managing Pinterest, like any other social media platform is a science. There are tricks of the trade, few short cuts and no such thing as a one size fits all.

You need to know:
1)who your target market is
2) what your strategy is
3) how you’re going to use Pinterest to achieve business goals

Unfortunately I am seeing too many common mistakes from businesses attempting to cash in on Pinterest’s success and sadly because of these mistakes they are setting themselves up to fail from the get-go.

Don’t be lazy with these seven important Pinterest activities. Roll up your sleeves and do them right. Go here to read the full article http://bit.ly/1mhhqCM

Over to you…
What other mistakes do you see other people doing?  Let me know in the comments below.

Post to LinkedIn once per day. (20 times per month)

Pinterest Expert Shares 10 Fatal Pinterest Mistakes You Are Probably Making
http://www.whiteglovesocialmedia.com/10-fatal-pinterest-mistakes-probably-making/

So let me guess, you’ve been on Pinterest for several months now and you’re scratching your head thinking “Why am I not getting more followers? Why aren’t my pins getting repinned?”

Many Pinterest users have unrealistic expectations about how to create a successful Pinterest account. Somehow they think that if you just push a bunch of pretty images out onto Pinterest you’re all set!

Getting high engagement on Pinterest is no different than getting high engagement on any other social network. You are building relationships online and that takes time… just like it does in real life.

Success on Pinterest isn’t just one thing; there are multiple factors that contribute to operating a successful account. I have said this before; there is a lot of science to Pinterest success.

The challenge for many bloggers, marketers and business owners is they think that they can just wing it on Pinterest.
Ask yourself?
What important goals did you successfully achieve in life by winging it?

Make no mistake about it, you are competing for eye balls and attention on Pinterest… are you playing to win or mailing it in?

Are you making these 10 fatal Pinterest mistakes? Click here to find out http://www.whiteglovesocialmedia.com/10-fatal-pinterest-mistakes-probably-making/

Get More Pinterest Followers With Trending Topics Based On Research
Learn what you need to do to before the holiday/event/season begins.
http://bit.ly/P8xKJK

Over 70% of online consumers go to Pinterest to get ideas & inspiration on what to buy. This according to Bizrate.

In addition, 67% go on Pinterest to keep up with the latest trends. With that kind of massive traffic; enterprises, bloggers, marketers and business owners would profit if they could find ways to leverage that to get more repins & followers.

Popular trends on Pinterest are categories such as; fashion, holidays, events, seasons and so forth. One powerful & proven key for getting more followers is to make sure that you create boards at least six to eight weeks before the trends begins. Doing so gives your Pinterest page a boost. Why?

Pinterest boards are like window displays that you see in stores at the shopping mall.

Notice how the window displays at the mall are always a step ahead of the next season or holiday. And also how quickly they change to the next one when the time is right?

They want to keep things fresh and relevant, plus they want to attract eyes balls with new colors and styles and shapes. They want to draw people in to make sales.

This is a proven, sales building merchandising strategy.  You are doing the same thing with Pinterest.

Remember Pinterest users having a buying mindset. As a matter of fact Pinterest pays off more than Facebook for retail. According to a new report from Experian Marketing Services, social media sites in March accounted for 7.72 percent of traffic to retail websites, up from about 6.6 percent the prior year. Pinterest is driving the greatest percentage of its traffic to retailers’ sites, at 10.9 percent, according to the study.

Think about your boards like window displays at a popular retailer. Imagine everybody is walking by.  What do you want them to see?
If it’s the month of April would you expect to find winter clothing displays right? Of course not.

Therefore a makeover of your boards with an eye towards staying current with the latest trends & seasons will definitely get more eyes on your Pinterest page and get you more followers too.

Shoppers are shoppers are shoppers whether they are looking at a window display in the physical world or your Pinterest boards in the digital world.  WARNING: If you are not current and you don’t grab their attention you just lost a potential customer.

Empowering your boards with this seasonal merchandising strategy will help you not only stay current and appeal to the collective shopping mindset prevalent at the time, in addition as a side effect you end up driving more traffic back to your website too.

If your content is stale or outdated then pinners will scratch their head and ask themselves “what the heck?” It’s like driving by a store seeing snow boots being featured in the window display in summer. It doesn’t make sense does it? You might as well say ba-bye to those potential followers.

In addition, according to 10alike pins featuring trending topics (seasons) see a 94% increase in click-through-rates! Imagine that! 94% right now – think about that.

#PinterestExpert Shares 13 Ways To Rock Your Pin Descriptions To Get Massive Clicks Throughs
http://blog.viraltag.com/2014/04/03/13-ways-to-rock-your-pin-descriptions-to-get-massive-clicks-throughs/

One of the biggest mistakes I see being made over and over again is how Pinterest users ignore crafting eye grabbing, attention sucking pin descriptions.

I often just see hashtags, or one liners, or even just one word. I think it is because it is so much for fun to pin while creating pin descriptions feels more like work! Guess what? It is!

Pinterest gives you 500 characters to work with but according to Dan Zarrella who researched 11,000 pins and found that the most repinned and commented on items were accompanied by descriptions of 200 to 300 words.

Yes, Pinterest is about pretty images but you can’t afford to expect your images to do all the heavy lifting and get you those click throughs. Success on Pinterest isn’t just one thing; there are multiple factors that contribute to operating a successful account. I have said this before; there is a lot of science to Pinterest success.

The challenge for many bloggers, marketers and business owners is finding a way to create attention sucking, eye ball grabbing messages that stand out and make pinners care about clicking through your image amidst all hundreds of other ones on their home feed.

Make no mistake about it, you are competing for eye balls and attention on Pinterest… are you playing to win or mailing it in?

Why are click throughs so important? Well at the end of the day isn’t what you really want is the pinner clicking thru and landing on your website and make a purchase? That is the real goal here. There are times when our visuals may not evoke the emotion we are trying so hard to get which is why we need to back that up with clear, powerful attention grabbing pin descriptions.

Pin descriptions are a lot like blog titles or headlines in my eyes. That first line makes it or breaks it. We are grabbing the pinners’ attention in order to move them to care about your content.

Let’s see what we can learn from this study and how respondents react to blog titles based on Conductor’s research:
1) 36% preferred headlines containing numbers. This rate goes up to 39% for women.
2) 21% preferred headlines that literally talk to them.
3) 17% preferred headlines that show them how to do something.

So the 3 key takeaways are to include:
1) numbers
2) adding the word “You” so the pinner feels we’re speaking to them
3) what will they learn that they will find helpful or beneficial; will it solve a problem

As a Pinterest expert & consultant I believe your title or headline must also include some of the following to help pique a pinner’s interest and increase your chances of getting repins and click throughs.

mentioned http://blog.viraltag.com/2014/04/03/13-ways-to-rock-your-pin-descriptions-to-get-massive-clicks-throughs/

How about you?
What are you secrets to getting more click throughs?

It makes sense to me!  I try an limit hashtags to those that tie to the core of the post.  While they me less effective on Facebook, I still use them, and ideally within the 1st 80 characters as my FB page posts also post to Twitter.

3 Critical Steps for Optimizing (SEO) Your Pinterest Page To Rank High On Search Engines
http://blog.viraltag.com/2014/03/23/pinterest-video-tutorial-3-critical-steps-for-optimizing-se0-your-pinterest-page-to-rank-high-on-search-engines/

Before you start pinning away there are a few things you need to do so that you’re Pinterest business account is set-up for success. I have said this several times before, you may have the greatest images or products but if no one can find you on Pinterest then you’ll have to work even harder to make sales and who wants to do that – work smarter, not harder.

I will reveal a proven 3 step blueprint to help you build an optimized Pinterest profile for your business. This topic may not be as fun as looking through all the pretty images but this is an essential part of Pinterest success.

I see too many businesses and brands make huge mistakes when it comes to Pinterest SEO. What that means to me is they are not fully optimizing their Pinterest account. As a result they miss tons of traffic that could be, should be theirs.

Many are in such a rush to pin their hearts out while totally missing the fact that you need to apply proper SEO tactics in several key areas so that you will get found on Pinterest.

Don’t you want to come up higher than your competition or first when your target audience searches for your product or service category? That is what SEO juice helps you do.

Just because you have a pretty picture doesn’t mean you’re all set and you don’t have to do anything else….wrong! So wrong!  Just like on Google your goal is to have your website rank on the first page of organic search under your select key words it is the same within Pinterest for your Pinterest page.

One of your most important goals on Pinterest is to drive large volumes of traffic to your website and/or blog. Isn’t the whole point of having a website to attract visitors?

Watch this video tutorial below as I reveal the 3 areas on setting up your Pinterest page where you can apply such keywords and tactics.

After you watch the video tutorial go back and check to see if you have applied these SEO tactics and if not effort to  make it right. It is soooo worth it.

If you make the effort to follow these 4 steps you’ll be ahead or most if not all of your competition even if you’re just starting out!
