Pinterest has been around for quite some time however it seems that people have only just started using it. More and more we are hearing about people setting up profiles within the system and pinning things. This means that, as of the writing of this article, the system hasn’t been overrun with marketers (the way it is starting to feel like Facebook has been). This indicates that right now is a marvelous time to get a name for yourself and become a part of it before you have to worry about ending up as just one more person trying to sell stuff.
This might seem like a no-brainer but make sure that your profile includes the URL to your main business site. This is something that you should not use to market your business. It is not supposed to be a blatant sales message. It is imperative that you send them to a landing page, not something pitching a product.
If you just opened up an account, you can actually hurt your reputation by doing this your first time around. Whatever you put, the truth should be shown. Just be honest – that will be your guideline. Believe it or not, people on the Internet are not that ignorant – they will realize what you were doing in your popularity will begin to wane.
In one section of Pinterest, you can put an “about me” paragraph for people to read. You will have a statement below your photograph. In this area, you describe your business and yourself in some detail, plus you should also add your website. This way when people click on your profile they won’t have to wonder whether you’re a person or a business. If you said something about yourself and the business, they will know that you represent both. Since most people do not use this for marketing, it may be offended if you just write about your business. So write about both so that it works out.
Using names for your boards, you need to be creative and careful. Incorporating your personality, without being silly, is always recommended. Pinning something will always share your board’s name with it. Looking boring is not what you want. Try to make them look as professional as possible.
It is so important to have a balance between marketing something on your board, and also making it interesting enough to go see. The board name needs to be short. You will get used to it, especially when you start out, but it will work out just fine.
Their many reasons to give Pinterest a try. Even though this has been around for some time, Pinterest is now starting to take off. Since this is just starting to happen, you need to join quickly. Since most marketers don’t know about this portal, Internet Marketers are not overrunning it as of yet. The best way to get the best investment for your time put in is to join this social media site quickly. If you can get in early, you will reap the greatest rewards.
