Want to make the most of Pinterest but don't know where to start? This free printable book provides answers to thirty frequently asked questions.FAQ's include:
Can marketing on Pinterest really improve my sales?
Definitely. People referred by Pinterest pins spend 70% more money than visitors referred from non-social channels.
Hi, I'm Andy Fling, the founder of TrafficWonker.com. I help small business owners and bloggers build businesses they love through Pinterest marketing.
In my free time I play the trumpet, draw, hang out with family and friends, and play fetch with our dog Chester - he rolls the ball and I fetch it.
How many boards should I have?
The TrafficWonker team asked that question too, so we conducted a study. The average number of boards on accounts owned by pinners with 300K+ followers is 56 boards.
Are hashtags helpful in marketing your products/content on Pinterest?
There are pros and cons to hashtags. Adding hashtags to the pin description box allows you include additional keywords. The downside is hashtags add a clickable link that creates an escape route away from your pin, and you may lose that customer forever. However, it's still better to include one or two than not.
How do I choose quality collaborative (group) boards?
It's hard to tell if a group board will serve you well, but you can at least start with an educated guess.
Give the collaborative (group) board a try if:
1) Your products/content are a good fit for the board.
2) It has 2,000+ followers.
3) It has 300+ contributors.
4) The board rules don't prevent you from posting duplicates pins.
You’ll want to be able to schedule pins to your group board, and you’ll want to be able to leave duplicates. TrafficWonker features Auto-Clear, and is able to auto-delete your scheduled pins to keep your boards clear of duplicates. However, the Pinterest API prevents any pin scheduler from deleting pins from collaborative (group) boards not owned by you. You’ll need to be able to leave pins on the board and post duplicates every week.
How can I make my pin images look better?
Quozio, Instagram, Canva and PicMonkey are all web-based tools for the novice designer. Just choose a template or start with a blank canvas and create. It's easy.
