Use the space appropriately

Like all other social media platforms, it is critical to understand that etiquette is important. To get attention and avoid any sort of ban, be sure to act correctly within the space. Pinterest even offers etiquette guidance, which will improve your chances of getting a positive response and participation.

Research and start pinning

It is important not to jump into things. You should do your research and make sure you understand Pinterest’s terms and conditions. Once you figure out the basics of using this platform, start using it. In the beginning, it might feel new and a little confusing, but it is important to spend some time and get used to it.

Add value

Do not expect to effectively market your products by just pining their images and linking them to buying details. Remember that Pinterest is a community, which shares advice, tips and other valuable information. So ensure your board adds such value as well.


Linking your various platforms is essential. Do not forget to add the Pinterest icon to your blog and business website. Encourage interaction among various social communities on Pinterest on your brand. Use the hash tags and ‘@’ tags to link your page to keyword searches and potential shares. The idea is to engage and to optimize. Tagging helps in SEO and brings increased attention to your page.

Keep learning

Pinterest is being developed continually, so make sure you constantly research and learn about the new features it offers. It is a great way to build visibility, brand loyalty and revenue. Use Pinterest’s features to take your creativity to a level higher in selling your brand.

Be organized

If you do not organize your boards well, they can be very confusing for the user. Your boards should have concise and clear purposes and make sure you pin strategically. Be careful not to go over board by pinning many things simultaneously. Chalk out a strategy and stick to it. Remember that community is the key, so it is your job to simplify browsing for them.

Pin interesting images

An interesting image is more likely to get repined by other users. The number of repins directly relates to your brand’s visibility. Use images that are of high quality, interesting and add value to your brand.
