Please review and add points to the relevantSOPsABOUT PINTERESTAlmost every website can get more traffic by pinningtheir photos, videos, and blog posts in Pinterest (high PR and high authority, creating links totarget site)PINTEREST RULES 1. Use images in EVERY post! Pinterest is like an online scrapbook. The more interesting your image is, the more likely your content will get shared. So for every article we create for a site, we should put an interesting image to go with it on Pinterest 2. Install a Pinterest button on the blog or site. This makes it easy for your visitors to share your content on their Pinterest boards. Now anytime someone Pins your content, it will automatically be posted to THEIR Pinterest board with a link back to your website. 3. The best times to post are 5AM and 5PM. Pinterest traffic seems to spike around 6am and 6pm (Before Work and After Work). So these times often give your content the best change to gain traction. 4. Make Your Pins Searchable. There are thousands of users searching for specific content on Twitter, so tweet any Pinterest posts and be sure to include targeted keywords in the description. Plus, you can also add relevant hashtags to the end of your description. (Ex. #fitness, #marketing, #books, #wedding, etc...) 5. Post videos! Pinterest has a complete section just for videos. And the cool part is this section isnt nearly as competitive as many of the others so you can get some extra traffic to almost any video you create. 6. Include your URL in the "About" section of your Pinterest profile. It will show up directly under any photo and allows users to quickly find out more about the site/ profile.
7. As always, the biggest key to success with ANY social media site is to be HUMAN! Dont make it all about business. Social media is all about interaction. 80% of posts should be sharing OTHER peoples content, fun photos, vacation pics, etc... While 20% points back to our own content.
