10 Pinterest Tips for Business Owners

  1. Separate your business account from your personal account.  This way your followers and supporters are only seeing business related posts that you want them to see.
  2. Don’t overwhelm your followers with a flood of pins. Spread them out a bit.
  3. Similar to Facebook, you can use “@” to tag someone in a comment. Interact with your followers and those you pin. They will remember you and your pins.
  4. Plan and organize your boards so they have a specific theme or topic.
  5. You can use this domain to see what has been pinned from your website and where:
  6. Add text to your images to expand on your topics
  7. Create images that are text only – they aren’t as popular but they are still pin-worthy
  8. Only use quality, relevant images. If the photos are blurry or irrelevant is a waste of time
  9. Pin coupons/deals for your product that are exclusive to your Pinterest followers.
  10. Regularly contribute to group boards within your industry or topic interest
  11. BONUS: Pin about others in your industry – don’t just self-promote.
