When i first found out about Pinterest I was mesmerized, it quickly became an addiction of mine to pin everything and anything I liked on to my own boards! Quotes, home decor, prints, countries, travel dreams, you name it, I had a board for it! The more I used Pinterest the more people I followed and I soon started noticing businesses with their own accounts! DUH! I thought, why doesn’t Bespoke Bride have a Pinterest account yet?! So we created one. And the addiction started again. But soon the benefits of having a Pinterest account would become seriously apparent to us and spending time on Pinterest no longer became something to do when we were procrastinating with a cup of tea! That’s right. We were ALLOWED to spend time on Pinterest as part of our social media because it was so benefitial for us!
Here’s the thing. Pinterest is one of our top traffic sources to the blog. So if you don’t have a business Pinterest account, I suggest you make one sharpish and get it all linked up to your site!
Simply having an account isn’t enough though, you need to maximise this feature to it’s full business potential! Here’s our top tips for making your Pinterest a kick ass account with lots of followers and oodles of traffic to your site!
Tip 1: There really is nothing worse than arriving on someone’s Pinterest account who has just made a load of rubbish boards filled with mass amounts of images some good, some terrible! It’s just obvious that they’re pinning for the sake of pinning. Remember to only pin things you truly love and believe to be awesome!
