  12. 12. Best Practices:  Your pins are forever: Unlike a tweet that has the staying power of mere seconds, a pin is a permanent fixture on your board.  There are SEO benefits: Pinterest is indexed by google and should be part of your backlinking and social linking strategy.  Content is searchable: Users can search for content by keywords, hashtags, or categories.  Repins encourage following: After someone re-pins an image from one of your boards they are prompted to begin following you as well.  Your customers & clients are on Pinterest.  Your competitors are on Pinterest.  Create community: Users can easily embed their social sites and contact information into the Pinterest profile description. This alerts users to all of the ways that they can connect with you.  Measure, refine, repeat: To determine what has been pinned from your boards you can visit: http://pinterest.com/source/yourURL.com or utilize tools like Repinly.com. Viewing your top pins will help guide your content strategy.  A like is nice, but a repin is forever. What's so great about ?
  13. 13. Best Practices con’t:  It all starts and ends with a photo: The power of Pinterest is all within the images that you use to attract and engage your audience.  Photos should shine: Each photo should be high quality, engaging, focused, properly cropped, and it should be easy to identify the subject.  Watermarking your images: In order to protect the images you post on Pinterest you can use a watermark to describe the photo and include your information. Some of the tools that can be used include: picmonkey.com, iwatermark, pixlr.com.  Image name: Be sure to use search terms and keywords in your image names.  Know your audience: It is essential that you are in tune with what your audience likes to consume and share.  Organize your subjects: If you can keep your boards clean and organized you will improve usability for your followers.  People like to laugh: Funny quotes tend to be crowd pleasers for any target market.  Inspire your followers: Find out what motivates your audience and use Pinterest to inspire them to take action.  Fit a popular category: The most popular categories on Pinterest are: home, arts and crafts, style/fashion, food, inspiration/education, holiday/seasonal, humor, products, travel, kids. What's so great about ?
  14. 14. Best Practices con’t:  Consistency is key: Make it your goal to share a helpful tip/image daily.  Infographics rock Pinterest: Infographics display very nicely on Pinterest and are an eye catcher for your audience.  Upload pins related to trending topics: If you find something you can write about related to a trending topic, go for it!  Use keywords in descriptions: The most repinnable keywords are: recipe, chicken, minutes, bake, cake, cheese, cut bottle, step, mix, favorite, cool, top, butter, chocolate, ingredients, try best, baking, pour.  Include hashtags in descriptions: #Hashtags will provide more focus to your image descriptions.  Be descriptive: Use words in your descriptions that entice and engage your followers.  Be brief: Shorter descriptions are more effective so keep it short and sweet.  Product image: If you’re uploading images of your products, be sure to list the price in the description.  Create a Call-To-Action (CTA): In general, calls to action lead to an 80% increase in engagement.  Taller is better: The taller your image, the better it will display on Pinterest.  Know when to pin: It is important to upload images and engage when your community is pinning.
