Here’s a quick checklist to help you see if you are taking the most simple of steps to assure success with Pinterest

1.Do you have “Pin it” buttons on your products/services on your site?

2. Do you have a “Follow Me” button on your site?

3. Are your pictures on your site set with your tag line or website?

4. Did you convert your personal page to a business Page?

5. Did you verify your website?

6. Are you using keywords in your description?

7. Are you using your analytics?

These are just a few basic steps to make sure you are doing what you can to make the most of your time on Pinterest.

A few more tips:

If you haven’t started pinning yet- start by CLICKING HERE and creating a business page. If you have a personal page and want to convert click on the above link, and there is little writing it asks “Do you want to convert?” Click there and it’s simple to convert.

Need to edit your pictures, crop or resize them? Add text? I am not an expert in Photo Shop so I Use PicMonkey– it doesn’t get any easier.

It’s a balancing act! – As an expert in your field , whatever field you are in,  your new ideas and inspiration should be on Pinterest. Use that knowledge to your advantage by keeping a 50/50 balance when pinning.

50% of your pinned content should be directly from Pinterest – meaning repins. You are curating informative and inspiring pins from content already on Pinterest for your followers. (check your pin to be sure it’s a live link and accurate description. In fact, give the description a little update or put your “stamp” on it!)

The other 50% of the content you’re pinning is created by you. Either from your own work (Please not all 50%. While you want to show your talent you don’t want it to only be self promotional) or fresh content from other sites that your followers will be likely to want or need.
