If done well and done right, pinterest can be another social media income generator.
The thing to note is that there are thousands and thousands and thousands of people bidding to do the same thing – to make money from their passions.
In order to stand out from the crowd and to make money from Pinterest you need to tick several boxes to get started:
- Refine who it is you are and what you do
Define who you are and what your board is all about. Select one area and do it really, really well. Start with what your passions are – what are you interested in and know a lot about? Do you have quality information to share?
- Create your following
Complete your profile, start pinning and build your audience. Make sure to use as many descriptive keywords in your profile and pins so that people can find you and share your content. When pinning, have SEO in back of mind – think how you can word your pin to attract the optimum number of visitors.
- Give your followers clear and simple ways to engage with you
If linking through to your website, give them a clear options to sign up to your mailing list to receive more information. The more followers you have and the larger the number of people on your mailing list, the more attractive you are to potential sponsors who will look to use you to promote their products.
It’s all about building an engaged and loyal following. So make sure to know who you are and who your audience is, then get building and pinning.
