Pinterest is relatively new in the social media world. There are still a lot of things to figure out and some things left to be desired. Here are 3 Irresistible tips to get started with your pins and make others “Pinterested!”
1. Use Irresistible Descriptions!
When you pin or re-pin an image, edit the description box. Lots of times, pins come with little to no descriptive words.
Use key-words and phrases that would help someone that is searching for your image. You can take a different angle and leave a blurb about how to use the image.
Don’t make it too long or too short. Be like Goldilocks, and make it just right!
Example: In this pin, I typed a short blurb on how you could use the vase shown in the pin, making this helpful to the reader.
2. Curate Your Boards!
Organize and describe your boards, so that your pins are easy to find. For example, instead of just creating a board called, “Home Decor”, create a couple of different boards by rooms or themes like, “Living Room Ideas”, “Orange Kitchens”, “Asian Themed Office”, “Dining Room Delights”, “Kute Kitchens.” Get it?
Example: Check out how Kitschy Cupcakes created boards for different types of cake flavors. Doesn’t that just make you hungry?! See, how Pinterest can inspire!
If someone takes the time to follow your boards, check out their boards and at least follow the ones you find interesting. Re-pin a pin or two. Pinterest is so easy to use “socially” because you don’t have to do a lot of “talking.”
