Pinterest Tips 2 – Get Personal

By Angee Perry, ABitCreativeAMP    ♥♥♥    This is the second in my series of tips and “How-To’s” for making Pinterest work better for you. These tips were found on Pinerly, and I have regrouped and arranged them into categories to drive Pinner success.  As I noted earlier, many of my sample screen shots come from successful Pinterest user and DTeamer Elise, from VintageCarolina.

The second step in Pinterest success is to get personal – Be You! Here is how: ♦♦♦

  1. Share not only products, but behind the scenes and your personal activities. This will give you “personality.” Customers will feel like insiders to the brand.
  2. Encourage comments by saying “tell us what you think” and requesting input. People love to be heard!
  3. Always talk back to the people who interact with you. That’s how conversations and relationships start!
  4. Follow boards and people that interest you as an individual.
  5. Follow boards and people that interest you as a businessperson.
  6. Follow specific boards and not whole users. This will cut out the noise and allow you to have a more targeted stream.
  7. Follow a funny board. It shows personality and reflects your sense of humor.
  8. “Like” things you find interesting. This will show people you are “alive” on Pinterest.
  9. Comment on other people’s pins. Give credit where credit is due.
  10. Re-pin your client’s pins. They will really enjoy the recognition and personal touch.

  3. These tips can also apply to the types of things you blog about. I’m never that interested in blogs that only talk about what they’re making and trying to sell. It’s fun to get to know the blog owner and hear about what inspires them 😀
