- First things first, if you are using Pinterest for business you should join Pinterest as a business or transition your personal account to a business account.
- This may seem simple, but make sure that there are ‘Pin It’ buttons on your website and blog. Make it easy for others to share your content.
- Don’t forget to verify your website and link up your Twitter account. To enter your website, go to your profile page and click on the pencil icon, be sure to complete the steps to verify your site as well, it’s always nice to get a check mark! To link your Twitter account go to settings. You also have the option of connecting your Facebook account, at this time you can only connect your personal page so I would recommend not connecting the two.
- When you upload your own pins verify that you are directing traffic to the correct URL. Hover over any of your pins and click the ‘edit’ option to change the source URL if you need to.
Use Your Words
- Like all social media accounts keep your keywords in mind. Use your SEO keyword list in your pin and board descriptions and on your profile. Like other social networks you can also use hashtags.
- Don’t just self-promote on your boards, use them as a tool to share info that helps your audience. Try to keep it relevant to subjects that your target enjoys.
