When you are on the Pinterest website, add /source/yourwebsite.com to the end of the URL. The page that appears will show you all of the pins that users have pinned directly from your website. Example: pinterest.com/source/socialmediatips.com shows the pins pinned from this website.
To add a price banner to a pin, add a $ or £ as the first thing to the pin description. Pinterest will automatically add a price to the photo as a banner in the upper left corner. NOTE: This only works when pinning to the ‘Gifts’ category.
Use hashtags to ensure that your pose is categorized properly, and when replying to a comment (or if you are just trying to get someone’s attention) use the @ symbol to mention a specific person.
Users are on Pinterest to find things similar to their interests, but they also want to know that what they find is going to benefit them. They want to visualize the lifestyle a product will give them. An image of the product in use does this better than just an image of the product alone.
I’m on Pose for style ideas, and easy online shopping. I want to know that what I buy is going to look good with other items. Posting a complete outfit, rather than a single item, makes it easier for potential customers to envision what their final ensemble could look like.
Uploading a pose is very simple. From a computer, you click upload then choose a file, drag and drop the file, or upload one from Facebook. Tag the photo with relevant keywords, add a description, and you’re done! See below for how to upload a photo using the iPhone app.
Check out the people that your followers are following, and when you follow someone, check out who they are following. This will help you find a group of relevant people to follow who have similar tastes to you – and it will make your home page much more interesting!
Pose uses a similar design layout as Pinterest. A “Save” is like a “repin” where you can save the pose to one of your collections which is like a board. A “love” is the equivalent of a Pinterest “like”.
