Pinterest is a new social media platform. Sort of. It’s not that new. It has been around, but it’s just now getting popular for certain reasons. It seems new because it is just starting to get popular. It seems like every day there are lots of new people joining the system. It’s making the news in a variety of Internet circles. Have you set up a profile for your business yet? How come? Pinterest is proving a great way to share the personality of your business with others. Let’s look at a few ways that you can use the system to benefit your business.
When you start talking to people with the intention to find prospects, make sure that whatever you talk about ADDS VALUE to them. People appreciate this and will listen more to you. More importantly, they will begin to TRUST YOU. And when they start trusting you, it is more likely that they’ll want to follow your footsteps too! Remember this, “giving is receiving”!
The other way that you can add value is through making your own videos. And ideally posting them on YouTube. A lot of people are doing this. It’s also a great way to get your message across and, plus, it is more personal as people get to see you talk. There are also other websites that offers video-hosting platforms, such as Vimeo, Vzaar, to name a few. You can choose the best ones out there and start making your own video.
You can post your Pin to Twitter and Facebook simultaneously. Make sure you click these options when Pinning. This creates content on all of your social media sites and can help drive traffic between them.
With Twitter, though, if your My Pinterest profile account uses the same email as your business’ Twitter account, your pins will automatically be shared on Twitter.
Give yourself a tasty treat! It’s OK to take solace in a sweet treat. Indulging yourself every so often. I call these a “stress be gone” moment. A hot cup of tea, cocoa or an ice cream sundae on occasion can do wonders! So help yourself to a sweet treat!
