5 Ways to Use Visual Marketing to Boost Your Business

“Don't feel like it's all about SEO, it's all about Google - you can get a ton of traffic and really great leads from social, especially from Pinterest.”
+Alisa Meredith

It's no secret that visual images have power to communicate, and this is especially true in the world of online marketing. How, though, can you make sure that your images are saying what you want them to?

We want to make it as easy as possible for you to take advantage of what visual content can do for your business. With that in mind, this week's episode of “The Manly Pinterest Tips Show” is a special event where I join forces with +Alisa Meredith and +Vincent Ng to discuss 5 ways to use visual marketing to boost your business.

#Pinterest  released a new interface for their Promoted Pins. Instead of just paying cost per click, you also have the option of choosing to pay for cost per engagement (repin, closeup, and click) Take a look at your Promoted Pins to see what's new.

Flashlight for #Pinterest  will change the world of visual search and discovery. This will seriously be a game changer. So what can Flahslight for Pinterest do?

Have you ever saw a pin and saw an object within the pin that you really liked and wanted to find out more information about it? 

Well, with Flashlight, you choose the object and then it will show in real time similar pins on the right. So if you happen to see a unique TV stand in a pin that shows an entire living room, you can select the TV stand, and Pinterest will find you pins that are similar to the TV stand.

How exciting is that?

This week we'll be talking all about Building An Online Community with +Natalie Eckdahl

I met Natalie earlier this year at Podcast San Diego and knew that I had to have her on my show!  I was honored to be interviewed for her BizChix podcast last month.  I knew she'd really connect with my audience as well. She has really developed a great online community and has some great tips and tricks to share with us!

Natalie Eckdahl has 3 kids, 2 businesses and 1 husband.  Together with her husband Mark, she founded ScheduleMAX.com, an online scheduling software in 2011 and 18 months ago launched BizChix.com a community and podcast for female entrepreneurs.  

Natalie holds an MBA and is a former management consultant.  She loves coaching new podcasters and small business owners, as well as hosting masterminds for her community. 

Natalie has interviewed over 180 female entrepreneurs from Shark Tank contestants to Social Media Gurus, and loves to share the insights she has received from those conversations. When she's off duty, Natalie loves to spend time with her family (particularly at the beach) and is a huge fan of dark chocolate and red wine.

My wife may not be a Canadian citizen yet, but I truly worry about her future here with Bill C-24. If you have a loved one or friend who is born in a different country, has dual citizenship, or has parents or grandparents born in a different country...your rights to a fair and just democratic process may have just got screwed over big time. And under this law, I am a second class citizen. Sign the petition.
I was shocked when we learned that the federal government is undermining Canadian citizenship as we know it - taking away the rights of millions of Canadians. Right now, the government is working to turn many Canadians into second-class citizens with fewer rights – just because they were born outside Canada or are dual citizens. Why should my citizenship be worth less than other Canadians, just because my mom was born in a different country a...

This place did an oil change for me, and within 2 days, the whole tank of oil was completely drained. If I didn't catch it the day before my car would have been completely totaled. They didn't properly put the bolt back on the bottom of the pan and what resulted was a a consistent drip. DON'T GO HERE, that is my honest opinion. I've had oil changes done for 18 years and not one single problem until these guys. You know what the worst part about it was, they didn't even care. I left a voice mail and didn't even get a response back. Here's the funny thing, I got an e-mail from a rep from Firestone Canada, and they told me that they don't have any records of this being officially part of their brand. On top of that my invoice didn't even have the right license plate or vehicle make. It makes me suspicious that they were trying to hide something. DON'T GO. Oh and by the way did I mention they tried to upsell me on a tire alignment, they could diagnose that but they couldn't diagnose their own crappy way of doing oil changes. Save your life, save your family's life, don't go here.
