IF only I had read “Pinterest Savvy” sooner!
You all know I’m all about “The Pinterest” and have been yacking to people about it since it was in Beta so I have no excuse for not having 1 Million followers on Pinterest.. except that I was doing everything WRONG! But not anymore!
I got to read an advance copy of “Pinterest Savvy – How I got 1 Million + Followers” by Denver mega blogger and biz saavy lady Melissa Taylor last month…
WOW.. the first chapter had me nodding my head.. oh yeah.. “that would be smart!” to almost every suggestion. I don’t want to give away too much and she explains things so well and in such a logical order than I wouldn’t want to mess you up.
I wasn’t doing everything wrong on Pinterest…I did have almost 2,000 followers AND I was having a bunch of fun and able to find the things I wanted on my boards, but I wasn’t using it to it’s optimal level for my business.
One of the things I didn’t do? I didn’t have a photo of myself in the profile.. I had a pretty picture since that’s what it’s all about but Melissa says that people would rather follow YOU than your “Brand”. So I fixed that.
You should also put all of your pin boards into Pinterest categories. I did that SOME of the time but it ended up that about half of them weren’t categorized.. WUPS!
If you have a website you should also have one board just for that. We know what that means in my case.. LOTS of new boards (which I haven’t done yet but plan to). You can see Melissa’s example of the one for the book here.
After implementing only a few of Melissa’s suggestions I have gained 200 + followers and been invited to new boards almost every day to collaborate on. (Don’t know what I’m talking about? Read the book!)
Thanks for putting everything all in one book so I don’t have to flit all over the web looking for tips. This is a step by step guide that will help you to win fame and fortune, well maybe now but be more productive with the time you spend on Pinterest. By far my favorite social media website.
