I've just made my first attempt at a Pinboard on Pinterest. This is a 'kinda new' kid on the block...at least for me. It's kind of fun & I haven't gotten my feet wet yet, but just thought I would share it with the group so you can decide if it has any potential for you. It's a fun way to share your collections & interests. You are invited to check out my first board called, "I STILL LIKE TOYS".
I've seen a few of the Pinterest sights. At a quick glance, I do not see a link for the item I've gone to see. Is this because I am not a member? If so, I am hesitant to join another national or international group (kind of like twitter or facebook).
Help us out with reasons to join (if that is necessary to link to an item).
I know what you mean about joining another thing! It's just a glimpse of what is out there.
As per the guidelines at Pinterest it is not a promotional site but rather a bookmarking type site, so tread carefully with the promotions. Pins with price tags attached are in my opinion messy. That said I do have a board (1 out of 33) for my shop items. I get maybe 2 views a week so it's not this fantastic opportunity for promotion that will bring a ton of traffic to your shop.
I've been on pinterest for nearly a year and feel I must warn you ~ It's time sucking and addictive as you could see if you follow me.
Thanks for the information. I did add my links. I don't plan to get bogged down with another thing though.....notice I said, NOT PLANNING TO. LOL
Deanna, How did you do that / snag that ?
Hope you can follow these directions:
Hope it works for you!
Thanks Deanna! I got it.
Great directions, easy to follow.
Just in between the "about" and the "pin it" step is "goodies".
Wonderful! Glad you were able to do it! Have a good holiday!
After reviewing this discussion today if any of you want to check....I guess I DID go ahead and start using Pinterest in a major way. Fact of the matter is, I get more interaction and repins from people on pinterest than any other social media site. Many businesses have discovered Pinterest, and you can use Pinterest as a promotional tool for your products. The best way for people to find your products is to add a link and it makes it pretty simple. You can add the price if you so desire (some do and some don't). I have had sales that came directly from Pinterest so I'm happy with that. It is also a wonderful spot to enjoy your passion. I love looking at the boards that are interesting to me and I've clicked on items many times to discover that something I love is already SOLD.
