(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

"Creativity, it’s an unknowable aura that feels just out of reach. It’s the attempt to tap into something “original” that inevitably becomes fractured and broken. With each creative endeavor, there’s a twinge of remorse. It could have been better. It could have been more. And with that, we move on to another project."
It’s a whisper burdened by doubt, time, expectations, and distractions. Informed by everything we see. Everything we experience. Everything we are. One

Aloha everyone!  Part of our ethical business building series explores the ethics of loyalty programs.  Programs such as customer points to cash programs, cash-back, even the local coffee / tea shop punch-card(s).

A question:  If you are a member of a rewards or loyalty program, how much does your membership influence your spending?

Example, do you book more flights (rooms, autos) with programs you've registered with?  Or, do you book services based on price?

Schemes include frequent flyer miles, frequent hotel or auto programs, cash-back / rewards cards, gift cards, prepaid service cards, etc.)

In the comment box, care to share a few thoughts about your personal experience(s) with loyalty programs?  For example, do you read the updates to each program to learn how / when rewards change / end?

Latest Tips and Motivation
 
For those struggling to figure out the first step/push to get your business dreams started, here is the best advice I ever received. You can start by just putting it on paper. Even the smallest action like physically writing down your ideas puts the reality in motion.
Write down what you want to do, and then let the creative juices start rolling. Once you start just get everything out, later you can come back and edit or categorize your thoughts. To come true, every dream needs that first action.

The customer is “sometimes” right

In a perfect world, you would deliver everything to every client exactly the way she wants it, exactly when she wants it (and, while we’re dreaming, chocolate would have zero calories). Sadly, we don’t live in the perfect world.
