Pinterest is hands down one of the most effective social media sites for driving traffic to your business.
If you’re using it correctly.
Setting up your Pinterest account

Creating and populating your boards
What should you pin?
Loop your pins
What else does boardbooster do?
Word of warning:
Schedule time every week to pin to your boards.
You can spend 15 or 20 minutes adding new posts onto your boards to keep things interesting.
Pin every (good!) article you read.
Every time I read a great blog post (or write one myself) I’ll pin it to relevant Pinterest boards. It only takes a few extra seconds and doesn’t feel like I’m going out of my way.
Open your boards up to contributors.
I’ll go into detail a bit later in the post – but group boards are a great way to get your Pinterest running itself.
Hire a Pinterest manager.
This isn’t a thrifty option, but if you truly want your Pinterest account to run itself, this one is for you. You can check VA groups on Pinterest, but be warned that this can get pricey.
…or use a combination of a few of these.
Personally, I use tactics 1 through 3 on my own Pinterest account, and I’ve found that it works like a dream.

A quick note about the reviews on this site: I am an affiliate for every product I review. The vendors of these products give me them without charge in order for me to test them. However all my reviews are done as honestly as possible and I make no promises to the vendor prior to writing my review. Should you click a link on this site that takes you to a paid product this link will be an affiliate link and I will be paid a percentage of the sales price should you decide to purchase that product.
