Being Counterproductive on Pinterest and how to change your results
Why you might not be meeting your goals when it comes to traffic from Pinterest.
Are you beating your head against the wall trying to find out the secrets of Pinterest? Well, STOP! There is no magical potion or one size fits all strategy to rock on Pinterest and get traffic. It takes work and consistency.
If you only want to pin Monday, Wednesday, Friday… Then only Pin those times. Pick a schedule that works for you and stick to it!
Wearing Too Many Hats
More like a personality check! So if you have never heard of the expression wearing too many hats. What it means is .. as a person we are something to someone.. whether it be daughter, mother, best friend, boss, sister, wife.. see.. so many hats.. it can be pretty overwhelming to be everything to everyone.
In business we are leaders, teachers, inspiration, motivators and many more.. so not only do we have many hats in our personal life we have a ton just being an entrepreneur.
Just like this example, Pinterest has many sides … many hats. it can be overwhelming to know what to focus on Pinterest.
Pinterest is a Visual Trap So many ideas catch my eye and I forget what I was even doing on there. *dangerous*
What to focus on
Have you ever looked at the topics on Pinterest? Have you spent time following topics? (*Hint Hint*) Go now! I did an experiment and named my boards after topics on Pinterest…Topics are followed by millions of people so anytime someone is searching for that topic if you have your boards or pins that match that topic they will show up for millions to see! So Awesome!
Longtail keywords are longer than one-word keywords for example, how-to-bake-a-cake is a longtail keyword instead of cake-recipes make them longer. put long-tail keywords as hashtags on Pinterest, Like Instagram or Twitter you do not have to go crazy only 3 to 5 hashtags
