Pinterest is becoming more and more prominent in the social media world! Some are a tad but skeptical – and at GSS it’s our job to explain why this platform can be a vital tool in gaining exposure for businesses!
Below are some tips we always keep on mind when pinning away for our clients at Game Set Social:
– People are visual. This is what makes Pinterest so grand! Social media has become more visual than ever (see Facebook’s timeline feature) – Pinterest has hit the nail right on the head with it’s low-content highly visual layout. While posting product info/promos can be helpful, try to think out of the box with other topics and angles that are related to your brand. This will entice users to check out your boards, and once they like what they see, they will most likely want to check out the business behind the boards!
– Offer something different. Anyone can pin eye catching photos to their boards, but HOW you choose to do so can make all the difference. Try organizing your boards by Color schemes and unique themes. The way you choose to name and organize your boards can really personalize your page. When it comes to organizing your pins, let your creative juices flow! (Also try to pin things from creative sources outside of Pinterest, don’t just pin things from others!)
-Hold a giveaway. Come up with an angle that relates to your business or brand. I for example, would think of something fitness related. Create a community board and a topic, and the person who posts the board with the most likes and repins would be the winner. There are so many creative ways to approach giveaways, and the results can be amazing!
Hope you enjoyed our social media tips for the day! Happy pinning everyone!
