Are You Using Pinterest For Business? If not, now’s a great time to get on board!

Pinterest for business

Pinterest is a great site to look at to get ideas for recipes, craft projects, and so forth – but it’s also a great site to use for marketing! Pinning images can be a great way to drive traffic back to your website or blog, just be sure and edit your Pin to include the url or link of where your want to direct people to go



For example – let’s say that you have a service based business. It’s okay to pin recipes to your “food board.”  You can still pin your blog posts to your “business board.” Some of the people that found you through your food board may be interested in your business board.

If you haven’t already been doing so, start “pinning” your blog posts to your Pinterest boards. Remember – Pinterest is visual, so be sure to use good pictures in your posts.

Don’t feel like you can’t use Pinterest for fun. You don’t have to limit your pins to topics that are relevant to your site. Go ahead and repin other pins, too.

A great way to achieve good image “pinnable” images for Pinterest is take photos yourself or use free photo sharing sites like BUT just plain ol pictures are not going to be enough to inspired users to click your Pin to RePin or even to follow it back to your website. Your images need to grab attention, tell a story, move people to action and create interest or awe.

My weapon of choice for creating shareable and “pinnable” images that does all-of-the-above is Picmonkey. Picmonkey is a free photo altering tool that can take photos from drab to fab by allowing you to add text, effects, shading and fun fonts. I used Picmonkey to create the image for our upcoming FREElance FREEdom Bootcamp


and for the current Mom Deserves a Break $500 Gift Basket Giveaway.

Picmonkey is actually pretty easy to use, but I’ve spent hours and hours learning even more “tips and tricks” to creating images for blogs, websites and social media that “pop.” I’ve rolled all of this up into an easy-to understand guide book full of instructions, secrets and screenshots.
