The Pinterest Workshop was one of the proudest moments for #DBB.
Our instructor, Melissa, created the blueprint for the Pinterest workshop. Melissa is a Dallas Black Blogger member and has seen significant traffic to her blog through Pinterest.
Melissa educated us by sharing Pinterest is the second largest search engine for images behind GOOGLE. She shared her top tips on how to gain more traffic to your blog by adding the Pinterest app to your blog site. Melissa showed us her personal Pinterest account and the tools she used to gain as much as 115K monthly viewers to her Pinterest site.
The attendees received a full worksheet booklet, which included checklists, tips, and a section for notes.
Here are 3 things we learned from the Pinterest workshop.
1. Make sure your Pinterest pins/boards stay on brand. To assure this tip, create a designated color theme. Select the perfect combination of fonts, colors, and photos.
2. Consistently post your pins. Melissa shared with us the more you post pins, the more relevant your content becomes on Pinterest. Remember the IG algorithm? Applies here, too!
3. Schedule your pins. Melissa suggested releasing 10 - 15 pins a day. Sounds impossible? It's not! There are tools, like Tailwind, where you can connect your Pinterest account and it releases your pins based on the dates/times you select. This help allows your content to stay up to date and allows those pins to work themselves!
