#PinterestExpert Shares 3 Step Pinterest Blueprint: Proven SEO Formula
You'll learn how to increase without PPC
http://bit.ly/RLIGzb

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?

As a B2B service I consistently rank on the first page as Pinterest Expert and Pinterest consultant on Google. See how Pinterest has helped me rank first on the first page of Google as Pinterest consultant.

12 Most Strategic Ways to Use Pinterest for Marketing

+Peg Fitzpatrick shares 12 tip that will help you use Pinterest like a social media rockstar!

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?

The Shared State could be thought of as a state of mind mirrored in many cities, countries and cultures at once. It could be thought of as a political state where people all have the same idea, because their community isn't fixed within the borders of a country. Or it could be thought of as a set of shared circumstances or experiences that breeds a particular train of thought, and particular responses.

It's the ability to share our objection to the circumstances of our lives with others, and find those circumstances repeated around the world. An ocean of humanity with exactly the same problems day-to-day from exactly the same sources.

The Shared State has come into existence because of the concentrated forces that attack every aspect of our lives, and the very idea of humanity.  Because we all face the same problems, the same threats, and the same inability to alter our circumstances, the solution to all these factors also has to be the same.

There cannot be multiple solutions to this problem. There can only be one solution that is powerful enough to combat the forces ranged against humanity, That solution has to have the opposite effect to those arrayed against it to have any hope of success. Therefore the only real solution is the single idea of community.  The idea that we are a community, and the only meaningful work we do is towards the realisation of that community.

Money, central government, competition and many other factors built into our present society all undermine a principal motivation of humanity, which is to live and operate as a community, which tries to provide for its own needs, growth and future. The Shared State is a single solution that concentrates the energy and will of billions toward the natural goal of building a community.

This community is a natural extension of the individual. It is a natural human progression that is in the process of spanning the planet. We are all part of this progression whether we realise it or not.

Humanity may or may not evolve, but if the fundamental ideas regarding it's existence and purpose alter we have changed it forever.

*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/

#PinterestExpert Shares How To Get More Followers on Pinterest Now: 3 Reasons Why You Need To Be Very Serious About Pinterest

If you’re humming and hawing about whether your business should be on Pinterest…don’t take my word for it, take a look at these statistics.  And then get going because if your competition gets too big a lead on you….

THE FACTS
1) 62% of brands have the Pinterest “Pin It” buttons on their product pages of their websites and it is the most used button. That officially puts them in first place compared to 61% having the Tweet buttons and 59% of brands having the Facebook Like buttons. 42% of brands have the Google+ button all according to a study done by 8th Bridge, after analyzing 872 retailers.

2) According to Curalate “Pin It” button saw tremendous results: eight of Pinterest’s top 10 retail brands prominently displayed a Pin It button and brands like Ikea and Target generated nearly 1 million shares (aka pins and repins) from their website!

Do you think Pinterest is a fad or do you think Ikea and Target LOVE IT when their prospects and customers share nearly 1 million pictures of their products with their friends?

Pinterest Expert Smart Marketing Tip #1:
Whether you are B2B or B2C make your website or blog Pinterest friendly by adding a “Pin it” button http://business.pinterest.com/pin-it-button/directly onto your product descriptions and blog images.

Adding a Pin It button will automatically trigger pinners to share your images and that will help you get more followers and attract new visitors to your company website & product pages.

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.

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.
