If you haven't had a chance to check out +Frances Caballo's book, Social Media Time Suck, read the post that Cathy C. Hall hosted as part of Frances' blog tour. Frances really knows her stuff. And I highly recommend the book.

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?

Great post today by +Frances Caballo about her observations of how great writers manage their Facebook pages and profiles. She included me...but I don't think I compare to these other writers. Read and learn. I did.

So many writers think they can just sit down and write when they get an idea for a book and that will be enough to create a bestseller. With 600,000+ published per year, it's really not that easy. But there is a way to increase the odds of your book getting discovered. That's what I'll be discussing this Friday, April 25 at 1 p.m. PT with +Denise Wakeman and +Ellen Britt on a The Future of Ink webinar. Join us if you want to know how to write and publish books that sell--which means get READ.
