    How to Create a Stand-Out Pinterest Strategy

    Pinning to this powerful social network at least once a day will greatly improve your activity. Here are some tips on how to get started:

    Decide on your visual strategy – The type of visual content can vary depending on your brand’s niche. You will want to include a focused mix of quotes or memes, videos, blog posts, ect. Tap into the search feature on Pinterest, which will help you determine the right categories and keywords for your boards..

    Use Rich Pins – A newer feature that is offered to brands is the ability to share Rich Pins, which include a bold headline, real-time prices, map locations, ect. The additional information attracts a larger audience and can be set up on your website with the help of a web developer.

    Schedule your content – By using social media management apps and resources your brand can plan your pins ahead of time, which can provide more room to make comments, re-pin other content, ect. Use these services to gain analytics insights and grow your community as well.

    Follow influencers and stay active each day – Connect with other great users in your brand’s niche and share their content. Chances are they will do the same for you, which will bring more followers to your boards. Actively participate and communicate with your community, which includes comments, likes, and re-pins.

    As Pinterest continues to grow and expand it is important for your brand to make this network a regular part of your marketing strategy. One of the unique aspects of this platform is the shelf-life of pins, which can continue to produce results including attracting more website traffic.
