Fact: Pinterest Marketing Is NOT Time Consuming!

Many people shy away from using Pinterest to get traffic because they think it’s too time consuming.

Now to get your profile setup, get your account filled with content, and the other initial setup stuff does take some time, the on going use of Pinterest to get traffic comes down to just four things.

Yes!

Really… Just FOUR things!

Let me cover these four things with you here…

1. Work on creating content.

Content is the one thing you absolutely have to have if you want to use Pinterest to get traffic. There’s so many different kinds of content you can create and not all content creation takes a ton of time. You should have a goal to have at least 1 piece of new content every 2 weeks. For me personally I create 2-3 new pieces of content each week. Just work your way up to this level. For now start with a small goal.

You should be working on creating content each and every day. You don’t have to create a piece of content every day, but you should be working on a piece of content every day. Even if it’s only for 10-20 minutes.

2. Pin other people’s content.

Your goal with your Pinterest account is to Pin at least 10 Pins a day, but the more you do the better. Pin at least 10 Pins each day. A few pins a few times a day.

How long will it take you when you get up in the morning to Pin 2-3 things? How long will it take you to Pin 2-3 things while eating lunch? How long will it take you to Pin 2-3 things before bed?

The answer?

Not long at all! Just don’t make it hard. Look for stuff related to your boards, when you find it, Pin it, and you’re done!

3. Pin your own content.

You might not do this every day, but if you can, DO IT! You should be pinning your own content as much as you can. Hint: This is how you get the traffic.

There are ways to create what I call “fast content” that will save you a ton of time, and of course you can also pay others to create your content for you which will save you a TON of time.

4. Work Pinterest

Besides Pinning there are other things you need to do with your account to keep Pinterest in love with you and the traffic flowing. Things like following leaders in your niche, following their followers, and commenting on other people’s Pins.

I call this “working Pinterest”. You can do these things in just moments each day. Stay focused, do what you need to do, and be done.

That’s it… Those are the four things you’ll do daily with your Pinterest account to keep the traffic flowing.

The biggest key here is to have a plan, stick to it, and don’t get lost in a “time warp” on Pinterest.

Pinterest is a lot of fun to browse and you can get lost quick there looking at all the “things”, but if you use your Business account JUST for business you’ll save yourself a bunch of time.

Doing these four things daily is worth the traffic that Pinterest has the power to send to you. I promise! You’ve just got to stay focused and put in the work.

9 Fast Content Ideas You Can Use To Create Pins On Pinterest

The biggest issue people face when using Pinterest in their marketing is having content to create Pins for.

Of course you can Pin the same thing over and over again (as long as you create a new image for it, change up the description, etc.), but to really get traffic from Pinterest you need fresh new content on an on going basis.

But who has time for that?

You do.

When you create “fast content”!

By creating “fast content” you can fill your Pinterest profile with original Pins that link to your squeeze pages, sales pages, blog posts, etc. Anything you want of yours!

 

pin it

 

9 Ideas To Help You Create Pins On Pinterest.

Here are 9 “fast content” ideas you can use and create your own Pins on Pinterest.

1. Current Blog Posts – I’m starting this off with the obvious. Your own content. You can create a few new Pin images per piece of content you have and have a ton of new Pins for Pinterest.

For example… I currently have 13 blog posts. I could create 2 Pin images for each blog post and have 26 Pins I could add to Pinterest this month. Now that’s what I call “fast content”.

Want to really save some time? Hire someone over at Fiverr to create the Pins for you. Send them the links to your blog posts, and tell them to create 2 Pins for each of them. Of course you’ll have to give them direction on design, but this will save you a ton of time.

2. Promotion Quotes – I call these “promotional quotes” because you simply take a quote you find related to your niche, and make a “promotional quote” out of it and you can link it to anything you want. You could even do this daily and have 30 new Pins each month all linking to something of yours. This is great “fast content” idea to use to have at least ONE thing of YOURS you can Pin every day.

When I create mine, I have a nice clean design, great quote, and then at the bottom a call to action to signup for my challenge. How many things can you do this with?

3. Infographics – Infographics are HOT on Pinterest and you should be creating your own to get traffic to your own stuff. Canva has a ton of templates you can use to create your own infographic or again HIRE someone to do it, so this becomes a “super fast content” tactic!

4. Q&A Posts – What questions do you get asked or are asked the most in your niche? Take one, answer it, create a post about it, and then post it to your blog. Create a Pin and Pin it on Pinterest. Quick and easy! You should be able to create this in just a few minutes. Just ONE question per post is all you need.

5. What Are You Doing? – It’s the weekend or just a normal weekday. What are you doing that’s related to your niche? This could basically be a couple of photos with a few sentences about each photo. Post it up to your blog, and Pin it! You’re done…

6. Got Tips? – Can you name 3 or 5 tips related to your niche? Make a blog post with those 3-5 tips. This again should only take you a few minutes. Spice your post up with a few images, and you’ve got yourself a fast piece of content!

7. Resources – What are the best resources related to your niche? List them out, write a sentence or two about them, and boom!, you have a piece of content that’s ready to post to your blog and Pin on Pinterest.

Have I said Pin on/to Pinterest enough yet? I’m going to say it about two more times, so get ready.

8. Top Content – Take a look at your stats. Find the content that got the most traffic or shares or likes or comments or whatever. For example like your top 5. Write a few sentences about why you think each did well, and once again… BOOM! You have a piece of content. Now post it and… Make a Pin on Pinterest.

I’m only going to say it one more time. Here we go…

9. Mood boards – Mood boards are hot right now and it’s pretty easy to create one related to your niche. Not to mention it’s super fast to do it. Create your own mood board image and use it as a Pin on Pinterest and link it to something of yours that you want to get traffic to.

That’s 9… NINE… different things you can create FAST to have content TODAY so you can Pin it to Pinterest all month long.

Imagine if you sat down right now and used ALL of these examples and created 3 Pins to use to Pin to Pinterest.

Ooops… I lied. I said Pin on Pinterest AGAIN. Just a few more times, and then I promise I’m done.

If you had 3 Pins for a current blog post.

If you had 3 promotional quotes.

If you had 3 infographics.

If you had 3 Pins for your Q&A post.

If you had 3 Pins for your What Are You Doing? post.

If you had 3 Pins for your Tips post.

If you had 3 Pins for your Resources post.

If you had 3 Pins for your Top Content post.

If you had 3 mood board images.

That’s 27 Pins for Pinterest and you created it all in a matter of just a couple of hours. If you outsource the Pin creation and the other image creation you’ll save even more time.

Okay so there you have it. A quick and easy way to create “fast content” and have about a month of Pins you can Pin on Pinterest (last time I’ll say it)!

Why Use Pinterest Marketing?

Why In The World Would I Use Pinterest In My Marketing?

Let’s face it… When it comes to getting website traffic there’s like 83 bajillion ways to do it. Bajillion isn’t even a word or a number, but trust me. It’s A LOT!

So when it comes to deciding which tactic to use, you might feel a little bit lost.

Understandably!

I want to share one of my favorite tactics with you that you can use that I KNOW works to get traffic to just about anything you want.

Your blog, affiliate links, squeeze pages, sales pages, etc. ANYTHING you want!

What is it?

Pinterest marketing!

What is pinterest for

If you’ve never heard of Pinterest it’s a social network site that allows you to save things you find around the web onto “boards” so you can keep it organized and easily accessible.

For example in my Pinterest account I have “boards” on Online Business, Blogging, Affiliate Marketing, Healthy Living, and on and on. When I find something on the Internet that I want to save, I “Pin” it to a “board” that is related to the topic.

Now I have one place I can go when I need information on that topic. That’s why people are using Pinterest! As a matter of fact, Pinterest currently has 250 million ACTIVE users.

That’s A LOT of people.

People you could be getting in front of and getting them to your website!

So the first reason you should be using Pinterest Marketing?

It has the traffic already. You just have to be there to get it.

Need more reasons other than it has built in traffic? Um… Why?

Seriously there are more reasons…

It’s super duper easy.

Follow a simple strategy and you can get traffic.

Simply create a great looking image that represents whatever you’re wanting to drive traffic to, create a description for your image, put your link in, and you’re done.

Now you have a Pin on Pinterest that other Pinterest users can find.

Now there’s a little more to it than that, but that’s the strategy in a nutshell.

It truly is super duper easy.

And…

It’s FUN!

Look there’s not a lot of “fun” in driving traffic to your website, but using Pinterest is actually fun.

I enjoy the user side of it a lot. I like finding great information about what I’m interested in and putting it in categories (Pinterest boards). It’s very therapeutic for my OCD brain.

But on the marketing side of things I really enjoy creating images for stuff I want to get traffic to, and putting (Pinning) it on Pinterest.

Note: Even if you don’t enjoy creating images there are tons of templates out there you can use for your images to make it a quick and easy process.

Not to mention seeing the traffic from my efforts is a HUGE “fun factor”.

So, if you’re lost in the “sea of traffic tactics” I highly recommend you start learning to use Pinterest. It’s fun, easy, and most importantly has a ton of traffic there waiting for you.

What Is Pinterest For?

According to the Pinterest website, Pinterest is a visual discovery engine but what is pinterest for? More to the point who is Pinterest for? So what will you discover in this post? I will tell you about the various aspects of Pinterest and how to use them. Leave a comment below if you find this article helpful, it all helps with search engine rankings:)

 

What Is Pinterest For?

I have discovered by doing a bit of research that it is a place for people to share their ideas. You will see people sharing images of recipes, home furnishings and a whole host of other subjects. You name it and you will find it on Pinterest. The search area is in the top left corner if you are looking for something in particular.

It is basically a place where you find beautiful images on thousands of different subjects. These images are known as pins. The person who uploaded the image can link the pin to anything they want. Some people link it to their blog posts to get visitors to their site, others link directly to a product on the given subject.

Why would they do this? Well, stats have shown that people who go on Pinterest are already in buying mode. They are on the look out for ideas and if you can catch their eye with your pin, you could be on the way to making a sale through your affiliate link and a commission will be coming your way.

You also could link your pin to a blog post on a specific subject, for example you could do a post on make up on your blog and people interested in make up may go and read what you have to say on the subject. In your post of course you will probably be recommending a product that your visitor may be interested in. If you have given them what they want to know about the product in your post they may buy through your link. Happy days.

Another idea is to have a sign up form on your blog and entice people to leave their email address offering a free gift as an incentive. The free gift has to be something to do with the subject that your blog is about of course. This builds a list of prospects to market to who you know are interested in the subject.

This though is getting too far ahead for a lot of people. Let’s look at the basics and the various terms used on Pinterest

pinterest traffic

What Is A Pin?

Pins are bookmarks that people use to save ideas they love on Pinterest.

If you click through on the Pin, you can visit the website to find out how to make it or even where to buy it if it is something you are interested in.

You will probably discover Pins you love, just click the red save button to save them to your boards (see below).

When you try a Pin, you can show people on Pinterest how it went. Tried the perfect omelette recipe? Add a photo of your omelette you made following the recipe to the Pin, add a note to show people how it went, or add helpful tips for anyone else who might want to give it a go.

Sometimes you’ll find a Pin that you know a friend will love. Send Pins directly to a friend or a group in a message to pass the inspiration around. You can also use Messages to chat with your friends, even if you aren’t sharing a Pin.

What Is a Pinterest Board?

Boards on Pinterest are like a filing system. You create boards to save your favourite pins to. To keep the pins in some sort of order you can create different boards for each subject you are interested in.

When you then see a pin you like you can save it to a board you created on that subject. When you save a pin you like you will be asked where you want to save it to, and if you haven’t already you can create a board to store it in.

Pinterest boards are very handy for someone with varying interests, just create a board and name it say ‘rock music’ and any rock music related pins you like can be saved into this board to keep them all together. You may create another for favourite recipes and save all the delicious looking recipes you find on Pinterest (there are thousands) to the board for easy access later.

Pinterest Traffic

What Are Group Boards?

Group boards are as the name suggests boards with groups of members sharing their pins on different subjects. Someone may create a group board on their chosen subject. There are a lot of make money online group boards for instance and other people ask the group board owner if they can be added to the group. If accepted they can then post their pins onto this group board for more exposure.

You have to follow the group rules though, some will let you pin once or twice a day as long as you repin 1 or 2 other group members pins when you are there. This gets lots of exposure for your pins as some of these group boards have hundred of thousands of members in them.

What Are Secret Boards?

When you create a board you may want only certain people to see it. You then make it a secret board and only people that you give the link to can see it. This could be a surprise party for someone, you can then keep others updated on what is happening without the person who the party is for finding out. Very sneaky. You are safe in the knowledge that only a chosen few can get access.

Who Uses Pinterest?

There are lot of people who use Pinterest to attract people to their business and products. There are others who just like to share pictures of their hobby or interest without ever trying to sell anything.

Marketers will create very visual pins to catch your eye and as I said earlier may try to persuade you to visit their sites where they have something to sell or a blog post on something you have an interest in.

I hope you have enjoyed this short look at Pinterest and now have a good idea what Pinterest is for. Get creative and enjoy your time on there.

Make sure you come back to this site as I will make more posts on the subject of Pinterest as I delve into it and see what can be achieved.
