Pinterest is an Amazing Powerhouse When You Know How to Use it.
Today, we’re going to do a little Pinterest house cleaning. It’s time to set a new foundation for traveling down the path of success online. In order to do that, we’ve got to bust the top 5 Pinterest myths and misinformation circulating out there.
Some Pinterest myths to dispel are viability in the marketplace, gender-bias, and affinity to appeal to crafters and hobby-lobby-homemakers.
We are the myths busters debunking these myths once and for all!
Let’s get started with the 5 top Pinterest Myths to stop believing in.
1. Pinterest is a social media site to connect with like-minded followers
Pinterest is YOUR newest visual search engine buyer-based traffic. There are more higher-end buyers on Pinterest than any other platform, to the tune of driving $11 BILLION in revenue… in 1 Day Cyber Monday 2014!!!
2. Pinning 50-200 images daily will get you more followers.
Flooding your account with irrelevant images daily will be detrimental to your growth in attracting your ideal buyers.
What you are actually doing is creating a full time volunteering work for yourself!!!
We share growth strategies on this in the Pinterest Visual Marketing program
3. You’ve got to “share the love” and repin 80% of other pinner’s content on your boards, and only 20% of your own to be successful, stay in Pinterest’s good graces, and to get other influencers to like you and maybe repin your stuff.
4. Rename boards to make it easier, and delete pins and boards.
When you rename your boards, Pinterest have no way to update all previous links to that board, when your followers try to access the previous board they will get errors.
Here are 3 top reasons when your should delete your pins and boards
5. Pinterest is just for pictures.
“When you hear folks spouting off about how you should create massive boards and fill them with tons of pins 100-200 daily, don’t listen”. It should be an immediate red flag!. . . It doesn’t have to be like this. There are better strategies to create a unique brand that will stand out on Pinterest with my Pinterest Visual Marketing Program.
Throw away the ill-conceived notions of Pinterest just being for stay-at-home moms, women planning their weddings or creatives who have nothing better to do. Otherwise you’ll be leaving valuable traffic and SEO on the table. Instead focus on curating valuable content your readers will appreciate.
