Online awareness creation 5: Pinterest
This is the fifth part of the online awareness creation post. It is about the nine marketing strategies to use to create awareness for your online business to succeed. Specifically we will discuss Pinterest.
If you read part 4 of the online awareness post, you know that we talked about getting on Twitter. But in case you haven’t read it yet, you can click here to see it. Another link at the end will bring you back here.
Pinterest’s specificity as a social network is the sharing of photos. Thus the site is ideal for blogs or affiliate products that handle intrinsically photogenic topics to connect with your audience. Some are blogs or affiliate products about cooking, recipes, travel, or lose weight, dieting, etc.
The second thing to note about Pinterest is that most of the users are women. They have kids and earn $100,000 or more a year. If your target audience is naturally such people, then Pinterest is probably a great place for you. That you can use to build your audience and get more visits to your blog or sell more affiliate products.
To use Pinterest to get more visits to your blog or sell more affiliate products, you need to create boards.
HOW TO CREATE AND USE A BOARD ON PINTEREST
Log in to Pinterest. Look for the + button at the top right corner. Click the + button and “Create a Board.”
Concerning a blog, you may design a single board for all your posts. But since variety is the spice of life, a different board for each blog category wouldn’t be a bad idea. For affiliate products, you could have a board for each category (like email marketing, affiliate training, work from home, SEO, etc.).
It’s now time to start uploading relevant photos to your boards. In the text description, think Twitter and write a powerful teaser and add a link back to your site or affiliate product for those who might want to check you out.
Those who pin gorgeous photos tend to get a lot of viral traffic and shares on Pinterest. So if you share great pictures and visual content on Pinterest, it can make you get a lot of traffic or sell a lot of affiliate products. And don’t forget: a pin without a link won’t get you any traffic or make sales.
