Tell Your Story Visually: Creating content that reflects your business’ personality isn’t as difficult as you might think. How did your business come about? What sets you apart from the crowd?

Weather you are a Solopreneur or a Fortune 500 company, your potential clients want to know the story behind your business. So, why not tell it in a creative way via Pinterest?

Pin With Your Client In Mind
When you are in the process of creating original content or curating someone else’s, I want you to do so with your clients in mind. What are their pain points? What do they struggle with? Get inside their head and create compelling content that they will find valuable on Pinterest. Whether you decide to pin a quick image tutorial, share someone else’s blog post or pin a short video clip, it’s really important that you select information that will educate, entertain or encourage your audience.
Add Your Own Watermark
It doesn’t matter if you are a photographer, run a coffee shop in town or own a consulting business, always look for ways to accurately portray your business visually. I can’t stress enough the importance of coming up with your own stuff! So, leave your foot print on the content you create by placing your business logo or website url as a watermark. This will help you increase exposure and brand recognition.
‘But Kim, I have so much content to create for Facebook & Twitter already… How am I going to find the time for Pinterest as well?’ The good news is that all the content you create for Pinterest is reusable! With a little tweaking you can place it that same content on your blog, website and your other social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter and Google Plus. You can also work in reverse by tweaking the images or print material you’ve already designed for Pinterest and turning them into awesome pins.
Add A Price Tag
In addition to valuable information, make sure to promote your products and services on Pinterest and add a price tag in the description. Although you won’t get the fancy ribbon on the side with the price tag like you use to, it’s great information to have. Especially if you’re running sales or promotions. This way pinners will know that these products and services are for SALE!
Don’t forget to always link these pins to a sales page URL where users can purchase your products and services online.
(Psssst….Don’t be shy, it’s ok to be salesy on social media because you are a… BUSINESS! As long as you are doing it in a respectful, tactful and strategic way, your followers will appreciate the fact that you are offering these great products or services of yours.)
Pin Tall Pins
Tall pins gets much more engagement in the newsfeed. So, whether you’re creating a mini infographic, DIY tutorial or a shot of your latest dress collection MAKE IT TALL.
That’s it for now… but there is MORE to come so, stay tuned because I’ll be posting a couple more videos that will help you navigate through more Pinterest tools & strategies.
