Welcome to another week of blogging roundups.
This week I will be focusing on Pinterest and why it is important for your blog.
I recently wrote a post about how Pinterest is good for driving traffic to a new blog. Check out that post. It is a very simple case study.
If you haven’t started promoting your blog on Pinterest it is time. It is best to automate your Pins, so an automation tool like Tailwind is a must.
So let’s get started with the first topic.
Work, Life, and Pinterest
This first post proves to me why a scheduling tool like Tailwind is crucial to helping you promote your blog posts on Pinterest.
After joining group boards and creating your own boards, it would be extremely difficult to re-pin others work as well as your own. It would all be overwhelming.
Imagine working with 100 boards. Some people are. A tool like Tailwind will help make the process much easier. It will also be much easier to balance it all. Take a look at this blog post on Balancing Life, Business, and Pinterest.
Ways You Can Use Pinterest Marketing
I am going to replace the word marketing with promotion. This post explains the basics of what a blogger or online business would need to do in order to market on Pinterest. Peg Fitpatrick explains 12 Ways to Use Pinterest Marketing.
Back in January Pinterest announced their new shopping ads.
This is very exciting for those who have very visually appealing products that appeal to Pinterest’s audience.
You will now have the option to create an ad that will appear when someone enters a keyword that relates to your brand.
I can see the potential for tons of revenue (hint, hint). Can you, as a blogger, create something that is visually appealing for your blogging audience on Pinterest? Time to start thinking. Check out the post Pinterest Will Be Launching Search Ads.
New Pinterest Features
