Get Your First 1000 Followers on Pinterest
Although there isn’t much talk about Pinterest these days, it doesn’t mean you should ignore it. It’s actually one of the highest converting social sites on the web… especially for e-commerce related products.
But how do you get started on Pinterest? Well, to get you off and running, I’ve decided to create an infographic that breaks down how to get your first 1,000 followers on Pinterest.
Pinterest is an online pinboard, a visual take on the social bookmarking site. Unlike other social bookmarking sites, such as Digg and StumbleUpon, content shared on Pinterest is driven entirely by visuals. In fact, you can’t share something on Pinterest unless an image is involved.
Like every other social media site, Pinterest has its own lingo:
– When you share something on Pinterest, each bookmark is called a pin.
– When you share someone else’s pin on Pinterest, it’s called a repin.
– You group pins together by topic onto various boards or pinboards in your profile. Each board mimics a real-life pinboard.
You can share images you find online, or you can directly upload images onto the site. Using the Pin It button, you can share directly in your browser from any web page. You can also share your pins on Twitter and Facebook.
If you aren’t on Pin, you are missing out. Brands are spending big money to advertise their products on Pinterest, and if you can grow your accounts, you’ll be able to cash in on some of that ad spend.
More importantly, if you have your own business, this is a great place to promote it, especially if you are selling tangible goods.
