How Can You Market Your Business on Pinterest?

Are you wondering how you can promote your business on Pinterest without violating their terms or coming across spammy?

The same general rules apply as on any other social network or in life!

We don’t go out there and scream, “Come buy my stuff!” or “Hire me now!” to every single person we walk by on the street or connect with on Facebook.  So don’t do that on Pinterest, either.

Share things, like things, comment on things that aren’t your products or services.  Interact with the community.

Make what you share at least 80% about others.

With that in mind, here are some ways to share your business on Pinterest:

  4. Good suggestions, thank you. Think it comes down to just acting normal an use the site as intended – as a regular user and not just promoting whatever you have and do nothing else. It does look like a good resourse.

    1. Hi Andrew, you’re welcome. And yes, that’s important to keep in mind, use it to share cool resources and photos and our stuff occasionally fits in there but it’s got to be about more than just me, me, me, me!

  6. I hesitated with pinterest but once I got on I can see advantages of sharing and am beginning to understand how to use to drive traffic to a site. But seems to take a lot of work to really integrate infographics into a post that would be pinnable. I’m sure it will become more natural with time. However, in the meantime there sure are some great finds and fun stuff to repin.

  7. Thanks for sharing another great infographic. We need clear explanations of each new thing that appears on the cyber landscape not only to understand it but to see how we fit in.
