3 Pinterest Tips & Tricks

Pinterest is one of the fastest-growing platforms and is a perfect tool to help promote your store and products.

While pinning is important, making sure your pins can be easily found is just as critical. Here are 3 tips for optimizing your pins:

1. Keywords

“Long tail” keywords are used to refine search terms and cater to specific types of searches. Typically, it’s a phrase around three to five words in length. Don’t just use “flower” — use “yellow daisy flower.”

Make sure your pins are highly searchable; customize the product name, refer to a specific location, target a gender, etc. Choose your keywords carefully in the pin description.

2. Hashtags

Proper use of hashtags will make your pins easily discoverable. Search for the most popular hashtags relevant to your design and include them in the pin description. For example, if you’re pinning a wedding invite, use #weddings or #bride.

3. Backlinks

Consider adding your store’s URL in the pin description. Doing so will amplify your store’s exposure when your pin is shared or re-pinned.

While you’re at it, why not add your associate ID to pins for easy referrals, and try inviting other Sellers to help create themed-based boards, like feebyneko did? Not an associate? Click here to learn more.

    Oh my gosh! Thank you guys so much for mentioning my Pinterest board! I feel so loved. :) I’ve been steadily working toward a specific niche market where anything Japanese themed is the appeal and by making a group board I figured I could get a hefty list of the best out there in that category to promote. So far it’s going great.

    Arigato!

    Thanks, I will give your suggestions some consideration. I’ve been looking at Pinterest to upload some cartoon based lawn ornaments I’d like to share with their community.
