Pinterest Marketing Consultant Reveals How to Use Pinterest to Grow Your Brand
https://blog.digitalinbound.com/internet-marketing-blog/expert-interview-series-anna-bennett-on-using-pinterest-to-grow-your-brand


I learned that Pinterest drove massive traffic to websites, I saw the commercial application. Pinterest brought in more than three times the traffic of Google Plus, YouTube, Twitter, StumbleUpon, LinkedIn and Reddit combined. It's a great traffic driver and at the end of the day all businesses want more visits to their website.

What are the benefits/advantages of using Pinterest as a marketing tool?

Pinterest will help businesses:

1. Get more traffic.

2. Make more sales.

3. Collect market intelligence, which helps with future content and product development.

4. Raise their brand profile higher.

5. Develop more loyal fans and brand advocates.

Millennials comprise the fast-growing consumer segment in U.S. they also

happen to be the largest audience on Pinterest. So chances are your buyers are on Pinterest.

Over two-thirds of the content on Pinterest is from businesses; so it's safe to say that over 100 million Pinners are saving pins and links of products and services that want to buy someday.

Many businesses don't realize that Pinterest is not just for eCommerce, but also for service businesses like mine. I do great with Pinterest.

As a B2B service company I rank on the first page of Google consistently with my chosen keywords because of Pinterest. What's not to love about that?

The purpose of using Pinterest is to make more money. You do that by ranking higher and getting found more often on Pinterest's and Google's search engines. More eyeballs on your boards and web pages or in your stores leads to more potential for sales. It's as simple as that.

Pinterest for Business 75 Point Checklist: How to Easily Launch Your Business On Pinterest
http://www.whiteglovesocialmedia.com/social-media-marketing-for-your-business-75-point-checklist/

One thing I am certain of is that managing social platforms like Facebook, Twitter and all the other socials are not the same as managing a Pinterest account. It works completely different.

If social media managers decide to offer Pinterest account management services they owe it to their customers to learn how to use Pinterest. It is so scientific. Most people who I see managing accounts don’t really understand and correctly use the depth and breadth of Pinterest.

Pinning for personal reasons doesn’t make you qualified to manage Pinterest accounts for business. It’s not the same thing.

Actionable tips you can apply right now. http://www.whiteglovesocialmedia.com/social-media-marketing-for-your-business-75-point-checklist/

Work smarter, not harder

Use this Pinterest for business checklist to drive engagement, attract more followers, get more traffic, repins and sales.

There are very few masters of social media, and those who have begun to understand its intricacies know that once they do, something will change and the game will begin anew. In a world where 61% of Fortune 500 CEOs are lackluster on social media, it’s time for a change. Today that change begins with an infographic from Hostingcaptain that is packed with the secrets of today’s top platforms. From Facebook to Twitter, every platform has its own un...

Pinterest Expert Reveals 4 Pinterest Strategies for B-to-B Marketers
https://www.ama.org/publications/eNewsletters/B2BMarketing/Pages/four-pinterest-strategies-for-b-to-b-marketers.aspx
h/t +American Marketing Association 

Most of the conversation about social media seems to start and end with Facebook and Twitter, but the universe doesn’t end there. While those two tech giants dominate the digital content universe with 1.49 billion and 319 million monthly users, respectively, the platforms are not the be-all, end-all of social media. In fact, there may be one site out there that’s actually a better fit for B-to-B marketers: Pinterest​.

With 100 million monthly active users worldwide, the scrapbook site is far from an online desert. And unlike other social sites, which were originally geared to social sharing, Pinterest occupies a uniquely product-oriented space in the social landscape.

As the company itself describes it, Pinterest users browse the site in a “consideration mindset” that makes them “open to inspiration from credible sources.”

+Anna Bennett  is the owner of White Glove Social Media​, a consulting business that helps companies market themselves on Pinterest.

Many businesses don’t realize that Pinterest is not just for products but also for service businesses like mine. I do great with Pinterest,” Bennett says. “As a B-to-B service company, I rank on the first page of Google consistently with my chosen keywords because of Pinterest. What’s not to love about that?

"The purpose of using Pinterest is to make more money. You do that by ranking higher and getting found more often on Pinterest’s and Google’s search engines. More eyeballs on your boards and web pages or in your stores leads to more potential for sales. It’s as simple as that.”

Bennett recommends that B-to-B marketers follow these steps to develop a social platform that meets their expectations:

Pinterest Marketing For Online Teachers: Keys To Getting More Students
http://blog.teachable.com/the-one-social-media-you-need-to-get-more-students-its-not-what-you-think
h/t Aske Christiansen +Teachable

Are you confused? Should you rush to be on all of them? If not, which one should you pick?

If you are looking to get more students from advertising on social platforms, the most important decision you can make is to stick with one. Any one will work, really, as long as you just stick to it.

Even if you pick the one least suited for your type of teaching and mastering, you’d probably do better than if you spread yourself too thin by trying to be active on all social channels.

I’ve interviewed three top experts +Anna Bennett , +Jen Clinehens +Viewability each specializing in their own social media platform, about everything you need to know to pick the right platform to advertise to YOUR audience and how to get started.

There are a lot of pro tips in the interviews and you’ll probably end up feeling overwhelmed if you go through the whole thing. So to make things a little easier for you, I’ve created a comparison chart along with five key bullet points for each platform so you can easily pick the one that feels right for you and then move on to read the interview that fits.

Aske interviewed four different social media experts on the platform where their expertise lies. He covers the pros and cons and who might benefit from using the platform to help you decide which social media is right for you.

(Pinterest Local Question)
Hi everybody,
I have a local client here in Brazil and I’m going to be setting up several social media accounts for her. My goal is to get her some visibility on Pinterest with a local customer base that would be interested in what she has to offer. The problem is that, it’s easier for me to target local on Twitter because of Twitter advanced search and other tools. It’s also waaaaay easier to target on Facebook with ads.
But when it comes to the search feature on Pinterest, if I type in the name of the city, it gives me boards about the city, it gives me pinners that so happen to have the name of the city in their name or pins about the city. It doesn’t just give me users that are located in the city.
A workaround that I “could” use to finding pinners in the city is finding local businesses and following their followers. The problem is that many of those pinners haven’t been active in over a year so they are not engaged. Plus it takes too much time to find these active pinners (too many steps).
I’ve also already come up with the idea of searching on Twitter who is tweeting out pins from the city I’m targeting… but this only goes so far. There’s not a whole lot of tweeting out pins of the city I’m targeting.
I have also used Facebook graph search to find people that have liked Pinterest and are in the city I am targeting; fans of Pinterest who live in x-city. But again this is very time consuming because I have to go find these people on Pinterest after I have found them on Facebook.
I’ve also tried to search through Google search operators but I’m having to weed through a LOT of completely irrelevant stuff to actually find someone targeted to my client’s ideal customer.
Does anyone know a less time consuming way to target Pinterest users locally that are actually active on the platform?
Would really appreciate any input 💖
Blessings,
+Eren Mckay
