10 Visual Strategies To Get More Pinterest Followers

If you’re looking for ways to get more Pinterest followers and repins then I’ve got the visual strategies that will do just that.

Gone are the days of Pinterest being a virtual cork board for women searching for the perfect outfit, makeup, or recipe!

Today Pinterest:

➽ Drives more referral traffic than Google+, Twitter AND YouTube! (Social Media Today)

➽ Has 50% higher conversion rates than other traffic (Pinterest)

In short, it’s a vast piece of web real estate that as a brand you can NOT afford to ignore! Figuring out how to get more Pinterest followers has become a necessity for any business.

In fact, Pinterest can return double, triple even quadruple the investment than any other social platform…IF you leverage it to its fullest potential.

To help you do just that I’ve got 10 easy to implement and highly effective visual strategies that when utilized will foster massive growth in your Pinterest presence and following: http://thebrandedsolopreneur.com/pintereststrategies/

In 2016, CDC will continue to build needed capacity to prevent, detect, and respond to health threats by increasing the number of disease detectives on the ground, establishing safe and secure lab networks to find deadly microbes, strengthening response to public health emergencies, and upgrading systems to track health threats. http://1.usa.gov/1Jc63ew
In 2015, CDC continued to work in the U.S. and globally to end infectious disease threats.

This is going to be a good time ... the facilitators are knowledgeable AND entertaining (easy on the eyes too, if I do say so myself.)
 
How would you like to spend one or two days in historic downtown Norfolk, Va, in order to network and collaborate with professionals in the crisis and emergency management communication field; start an actionable crisis communication response plan, assess your existing crisis plans, get proven processes you can use right away, learn collaborative practices based on real-world experience, and learn to assess your company’s exposure to crisis and plan accordingly? It sounds like a good time to us, too. http://ow.ly/XgTN7

Communication & Resilience in Crisis
Introduction
I was a public information officer in the U.S. Coast Guard for nearly two decades before starting my own business. In that time, I built a reputation for communicating with – or on behalf of – people and organizations on their worst days ... oil spills, hurricanes, flooding, terrorist threats, airline disasters and sinking ships ... I think you get the idea. 

Communicating effectively during crisis when people are angry, frightened and distrustful requires more than a particular set of PR skills – it requires no small measure of integrity, empathy, experience and a never-ending penchant for practical, scientific (of the social kind) and philosophical knowledge.

For my business partner and me, staying in this business after our military careers were over was a decision based solely on passion for the profession ... our personal and professional brand are one in the same so you'll find my G+ activity to be a fusion of crisis comms and disaster resiliency talk, with best bars and Buffalo Bills talk. 

I'm not on G+ to stay in touch with family and friends (that's what Facebook is for.) I'm here to meet new people (virtually), commiserate, discover and share meaningful ideas, learn about how others see things, and to enjoy a laugh here or there.
