  • Create a Pinterest BoardTips:Keep your board name to 24 characters or fewer, so the name displayed on the main board page won’t be truncated.Plan your board order so that your most important boards are in the top rowIt will be the first row that users see when they visit your board page (with the board in the center being the most prominent). It's probably a good idea to record the layout you create (e.g., in your Pinventory), so you can refer to it if the order should accidentally change.Use hashtags to connect with key subject matters within PinterestUse@ signs to acknowledge individuals or organizations within PinterestWrite descriptions with good keywords (it’s how people will find your stuff) 500 character limitCreate secret boardsSecret boards only appear to the owner of the account and anyone invited to pin to them, and items pinned to secret boards do not show up on any activity feedGood way to create boards and test out material before sharing Ask for recommendations, put possible content there, or future contentCreate community boardsInvite others to share a boardBe careful that their aren't’ duplicatesBe careful of inappropriate contentSource: http://www.govloop.com/profiles/blogs/pinterest-boards-making-them-work-for-you

  • Measure Pinterest SuccessMeasureLikesCommentsPinsFollowing the pin to your website and find out how much referral traffic you’re getting
  • Measure Pinterest SuccessPinterest does offer a free analytic toolsPins and Pinners SectionThe big blue and orange numbers are the daily averages based on the time frame you selected. Each dot on the graph is that day’s number of Pins and Pinners. The gray percentage increase or decrease is comparing the current time frame to the previous time frame of equal length.Repins and Repinners SectionThe daily average number of how many times content from our site was repinned and a daily average number of how many people did the repinning.Impressions and Reach SectionThe big blue Impressions number is the daily average number of times your pins showed up in main feeds, board feeds, or in search results. The orange Reach number is the daily average number of people who saw your pins.Clicks and Visitors SectionThe daily average number of clicks to your website that came from Pinterest and the daily average number of people who visited your site from Pinterest. There is a difference here. They are almost the same but here’s how they’re different: one person might be clicking to your website from more than one of your pins. This would lead to more clicks than visitors.Most Recent, Most Repinned and Most Clicked SectionsAt a glance, you can tell what is being pinned currently from your website (Most Recent tab)What is being repinned the most on Pinterest (Most Repinned tab)And what pins are driving the most traffic to your site over a given time frame (Most Clicked Tab)
  • Pinterest Best PracticesKeep adding new boards and new pins, always keeping the interests of your followers in mindBe disciplined about your inventoryPost what’s valuable and engagingIf you repin, make sure the pin actually goes where it says it goes and is what it says it is-Don’t get caught up with a beautiful visualPost beautiful picturesFollow other boardsFind some boards that relate to the information you’re pinning. Find some boards that would also be interesting to your patients. Then follow as many of them as you can.Reference boards on other social media channelsOccasionally you'll realize you need to change the name of a board. When you do, remember that board URLs include the specific board name, so changing the name will break all links to that board. Therefore, it's a good idea to track where you reference specific boards
