how pinterest can help your business grow
How to market your business with pinterest
In order to have success with Pinterest, you need to keep in mind that your business needs to have a set niche, a website (or platform for your products, such as an Etsy Shop), and you need to have clarity.
By clarity I mean you need to know:
- what are you trying to promote (your blog posts, YouTube Videos, freelancing services, Products, etc.)
- who are you trying to reach (the type of people that will enjoy your content or products)
- what type of content you want to create (Pins, Idea Pins, Videos).
Once you have these all figured out, you can start promoting with Pinterest. Let’s begin with optimizing your Pinterest Profile.
This Video talks a lot more about that:
OPTIMIZE YOUR PINTEREST PROFILE
You can go ahead and turn your Pinterest Profile into a Business one if you haven’t already. After that, go to Settings and make sure you have a set username for your profile, have your email connected, the website claimed & all other social media accounts connected.
How to claim your website on pinterest
Go to Pinterest Settings – Claim – Websites – Claim
Choose your desired method to Claim your Website
I find adding the HTML tag the easiest way to claim your website. Copy the code & then Install a plugin or app that allows you to add a code to the <head> section of your website.
But, you can also choose adding the TXT record to your Domain. For that, go to your Domain Provider, find your Domain, Click Manage Domain & Manage txt records. Click on ‘Add a new record‘, choose the TXT option, add the code & for some Domain providers you will also need to add “@” before the code.
Then, you will need to wait up to a few minutes, hours, or days (depending on your website), before being able to verify your Domain. When you’re ready to do so, click continue, add your website link & click verify.
