This is the final pre-written and scheduled post of Blaugust. Tomorrow afternoon I will be back on dry land, and hopefully able to start writing ‘live’ again. This is also the second to last part of the notes from my Highbrow course on Pinterest for Business. There are still a quite a few emails left to come through, so I will summarise them either as one of the very final posts of Blaugust, or I’ll leave it until September.
The course had already talked about making images Pinterest friendly in size etc. It didn’t go into much more details than that, but I did find a ‘Pinterest Cheat Sheet’ elsewhere which gives all of the best image sizes in pixel sizing – it’s a really great, clear resource.
Encouraging People to use Pinterest from your own site
- Make sure that you have plugins installed on your own website to give you the ‘pin it’ button so that people can put content from your website/blog on their own pinterest boards themselves.
- There are also some free plugins that will ensure that the right description (with the copy that you want people to see) will pull through to Pinterest when people pin your stuff.
The course then recommend using group boards to get your content out in front of people quickly and grow your following (kind of like jumping on a hashtag in Twitter, but much more closely connected.)
