Discover the Power of Pin SEO

Yes, SEO isn't just for Google anymore! Pinterest's search engine looks for the right keywords in your pins, boards, and profile. So sprinkle those keywords like confetti, but always with relevance and grace. Make sure you use relevant keywords for everything. If you just shove a bunch of keywords without much thought about if it fits your particular pin or board, Pinterest will get confused and likely not show your content, which would be a shame.

Remember, keyword stuffing is as passé as the Macarena (sorry, Macarena fans!).

Pin with a Strategy and Purpose

Quality over quantity. I know many Pinterest marketers will tell you to do at least 5 fresh pins a day, but if they aren't high quality, no one will click anyways, and your hard work will be for nothing. Pinterest isn't a dumping ground for all and sundry. It's more like a curated art gallery, so make your Pins masterpieces. Consistently pin content that is useful, engaging, and super shareable. Also, remember the power of good visuals – bright, high-quality, vertical images rule this roost!

Follow Pinterest Trends

The Pinterest Trends tool is your crystal ball into the future of popular content. It's a useful tool to help you write content around what is hot right now. Use it to see what's hot and not, then tailor your pins accordingly. After all, who doesn't love riding the wave of what's trending?

To find Pinterest Trends, click "Analytics" and select "Trends" from the dropdown menu.

Tell a Story with Video Pins

In 2023, if a picture is worth a thousand words, a video is worth a million. Pinterest's video Pins are gaining traction and are your VIP ticket to boosted engagement. How can we leverage Video Pins, you ask? Let's dive in!

  1. Behind-the-Scenes Tours: We all love a sneak peek into what's happening behind the curtain. Whether you're running a home bakery, an Etsy crafts store, a lifestyle blog, or a tech startup, your followers are always eager to see the human side of things.

  2. How-To Guides & Tutorials: The world is a university, and everyone's looking to learn something new. Video Pins can serve as bite-sized tutorials for your followers. Be it a simple 5-minute crafts DIY, a step-by-step baking guide, a swift makeup tutorial, or a quick home workout - there are learners for everything.

  3. Product Demos & Reviews: Do you have a product to show off? Video Pins are your runway! They are an excellent tool to showcase your Product's features, usability, and benefits. It's like creating your own mini infomercials!

  4. Snippets of Daily Life: Authenticity is the name of the game in 2023. Sharing snippets from your daily life - a new book you're reading, a stunning sunset, your adorable pets, or your favorite recipe, can add a personal touch and let your followers connect with you on a more intimate level.

  5. Teasers & Trailers: Launching a new product or service? Use Video Pins to create a buzz. Make exciting teasers, trailers, or countdowns that ignite curiosity and anticipation among your followers.

Remember, creating Video Pins doesn't require a full-blown production setup. A smartphone with a good camera, some natural light, a dash of creativity, and you're set to roll! And yes, keep it vertical – Pinterest is all about the long and lean look.
