    • Step #4:Promote other BusinessesSimply put: self-serving profiles don’t succeed. Dedicate a few ofyour pinboards to brands that share the same lifestyle vision asyour company. This shows that your users that you aren’t allabout promoting yourself and you are interested in curatingcontent that appeals to the diverse needs, beliefs and desiresthey bring forth as an audience.@zoomqa www.zoomqa.com 17
    • Step #5:Focus on Transitioning ThemesPromoting your brand is much easier when you can relate to theemotional drivers of your audience. Each of you pinboardsshould represent its own theme so as to help users relate to themany different angles of your brand. If your brand is confined toset themes, find ways to interact with the diverse themesoffered by other pinners and companies. Or, try asking youraudience for ideas on what they would like to see your brandrepresent on one of its boards.@zoomqa www.zoomqa.com 18
    • Step #6:Share Original ContentWhile re-pins and shares will help you optimize your page and reach acrossyour audience, make sure you are sharing content that is unique to yourbrand and its vision. Use your visual content to captivate pinners in yournetwork and encourage them to re-pin, like, share, and visit your website.If you don’t have a lot of visual data to share, create some. If your branddeals with data, create charts and graphs to represent its purpose. Also, tryconnecting the images from your blog posts to the themes you have createdfor your pinboards.@zoomqa www.zoomqa.com 19
