I wanted to tell you about a free Pinterest training webinar that I’ve just watched. (It’s free and you can sign up yourself here.)
Pinterest is the fastest growing website in history and the number of users has increased 145% since the beginning of 2012. It’s dead easy to use, fun and seriously addictive.
There has to be huge marketing potential in Pinterest, but how do you actually use it to make more sales? I’ve used it to get traffic to Business Plus Baby, but know there’s a lot more I could be doing. That’s why I wanted to take a look at this webinar.
I really did pick up some useful tips, too. Did you know that you should include keywords in your pin and board descriptions? I didn’t! And I’ll be promoting my Pinterest boards outside Pinterest too, such as in my newsletter, Twitter and Facebook from now on.
By the way, you can follow me on Pinterest here 🙂
Andreea also mentions how important it is to build your Pinterest follower base and to interact with them so that you keep them engaged with you and your business. Up until now I’ve been focusing on adding content to my boards, which isn’t really getting the best from Pinterest from a marketing point of view.
Oh, and I need to add a ‘Pin it’ button to Business Plus Baby, too!
If you haven’t ventured on to Pinterest at all yet, this webinar will be really useful as it explains what it’s all about and the best way to set up your new account.

I’m going to take a look at this Helen, thanks for sharing it. Pinterest fascinates me, is lovely to use and I can see the business potential. The trouble? It’s just one more social media avenue to pursue and work on…. how do we find the time?!
I think you need to test what works for your business and also do what you enjoy doing. There are so many social media platforms now that there’s no way you can be active on all of them. But I think Pinterest would be a good match for you because it’s great for design-based blogs.
