Pinterest brings the largest influx of traffic for most bloggers and businesses. It’s a great way to grow, get your name out there and advertise to the entire world…and it’s all for FREE.
The first thing you want to do is read the beginning of the #BB100 Pinterest Challenge series and then set up a Pinterest Business Account.
And, to do that you’ll want to go to http://business.pinterest.com .
If you’re a blogger or you have a business of some sort you’ll want to do this for a few different reasons.
- You can see your analytic. You’ll discover info over pins, repins, how many and there’s just basically a lot of the 5 w’s (who what when where why) being answered.
- You will have your site “verified.” This means you’ll show you’re THE rightful owner of the site.
- You can set up your name as it really is. With a personal account you’re straddling the fence and trying to make a business name work in the first and last name spots. Not fun.
- You’ve additional ways to drive engagement with special widgets and buttons that are designed just for the blogger & business owner.
- You can’t run a business from a personal account as it goes against Pinterest’s Terms so…you kinda don’t have a choice if you want to be on Pinterest. 😉
Check what’s being pinned from your site by typing http:/pinterest.com/source/HoneysLife.com but be sure to replace HoneysLife.com with YOUR site url.
You can also see what’s popular with your readers because the pins display before you.
If you’ve a small business or you’re a blogger I can not encourage you enough to make the switch over to a Pinterest Business Account. It’s really worth it!
Remember, tomorrow will be part 5! Subscribe through email so you don’t miss any updates and take a moment to pin it for me. I’d appreciate it!
