Tips to Marketing on Pinterest
I subscribe to Copyblogger, an online marketing resource for Wordpress. You do not need a Wordpress blog platform, to benefit from their valuable information. Most of their content is general online marketing tips. Recently, they published a helpful 56 Ways to Market Your Business on Pinterest. I wanted to share this information with my readers as more and more of us are becoming, self-admitted Pinterest Addicts. I made sure I read through these 56 tips. I have had sales from my pinning my own creations. Some of my items had been sold after I pinned them, but because of the pins, I have had several requests for custom orders. So I do believe in the potential Pinterest has to offer for the handmade community. I've never had that kind of interest come from other social media. I have a wide variety of followers that are not necessarily in the handmade market, which I think is key!
Interesting statistics about Pinterest:
Pinterest has nearly five million users.
Nearly 1.5 million unique users visit Pinterest daily
Those unique users spend an average of 15 minutes a day on the site. (Although, I believe this to be on the low end)
The article breaks down to helpful Pinterest Marketing segments:
- Beginner Pinners
- Intermediate Pinners
- Black-Belt Pinners
