    14. 14. PINTEREST GLOSSARY• Pins - A pin is an image or video, either from a website or uploaded from the user. As description should be added to the pins.• Boards - Pins are organized by topics, called boards.• Following - Like Twitter, you can follow anyone, even if they aren’t following you. You have the option to follow all of their boards or select boards.• Repins - Repins are like “retweets”. Repinning is sharing a image pinned by someone you follow and then adding it to one of your boards. Repinning gives credit to the person who first pinned the image. Source links also stay with the pin no matter how many times it is repinned.• Likes - Liking a pin just adds it to the “Likes” on your profile, but it doesn’t add it to one of your boards.• Pinning from the Web - You can add a “Pin It’ button right into your browser to easily pin things you come across on the internet.• Sharing - Anytime you pin something you can also share it on Twitter and Facebook
    15. 15. This is the Hult Marketing Pinterestpage. We currently have 7 boards, 68 pins, and 16 followers. We are following 20.

    20. 20. 3 MAIN BENEFITS OFPINTEREST TO A MARKETER
    21. 21. 3 MAIN BENEFITS OF PINTEREST TO A MARKETER• Get Seen - Pinterest helps people find new products/brands/ services they would normally not come across by plugging keywords into a search engine
    22. 22. 3 MAIN BENEFITS OF PINTEREST TO A MARKETER• Get Seen - Pinterest helps people find new products/brands/ services they would normally not come across by plugging keywords into a search engine• Building Links - Anytime someone pins something from your site, it automatically pulls not just the image but also the link • If that image is repinned multiple times you are building a healthy amount of backlinks
    23. 23. 3 MAIN BENEFITS OF PINTEREST TO A MARKETER• Get Seen - Pinterest helps people find new products/brands/ services they would normally not come across by plugging keywords into a search engine• Building Links - Anytime someone pins something from your site, it automatically pulls not just the image but also the link • If that image is repinned multiple times you are building a healthy amount of backlinks• Brand Advocacy - If people love your product, service and/or boards they will not only pin your stuff they might dedicate a board to your stuff (I have a board dedicated to Skinny Girl Products - don’t judge)
    24. 24. THINGS TO CONSIDER• Legalities - Post content that you own the rights to or share content from others who own the rights• Stay Relevant - Pin photos that relate to your brand and organize them in the appropriate board - the boards should also be related to popular topics on Pinterest so that they stand a chance of being seen• Optimize - File name, description length, and linking of your pins are all important to ensure they are seen• Become Pinteresting - Just putting up boards isn’t enough, find ways to be seen as an expert in an area or topic• Hashtags - Pinterest understands them so use them• Add $ - Adding the “$” in front of a price will automatically add the pin the the Gifts section of Pinterest (think Mercy Gift Shop)
    25. 25. EVEN MORE TO CONSIDER• Follow, Repin & Like - As with any social media, you have to share the love and encourage them to follow/like you back• Encourage employees to set up an account - Build clout as an industry authority by letting your staff showcase how passionate they are about your field• Optimize - File name, description length, and linking of your pins are all important to ensure they are seen• Create boards beyond your products and/or brand- Yet still relate it to your industry - have some fun with it• Add the Pinterest icon - Let your audience know your on Pinterest by adding the Pinterest icon to your site and social media• Incorporate a “Pin It” button - Include a “Pin It” button on pages, where applicable, so that others can pin your stuff
    26. 26. ACTION ITEMS• Setup your own Pinterest account/ boards• FollowHult Marketing and like/repin some of our pins• Have fun with it
    27. 27. Happy Pinning!
