2 Important Pin Features to NEVER forget!

 

2-important-pin-features-to-never-forget

 

Let’s play a game of “good pin / bad pin”

I’ve been known to tell my clients what a “good pin” should look like, but I realize that’s often hard to grasp when you are just reading a description of an ideal. So I thought I’d take this week’s blog spot to not simply tell you what a good Pinterest pin is, but show you the top 2 issues I see MOST often when working with client’s images for Pinterest.

Good Pin Feature #1: Light, not Dark!

These pins are examples of what you should never do!

 

They are dark and not very visually appealing. When I say you want lighter pins – I don’t mean it has to be a complete white background. I don’t mean you only can use pastel colors and can’t ever use warm colors. I mean the brightness of your photos and the white contrast need to be on point. These are a couple photography terms you really really need to be familiar with if you are at all photographing things to pin on your Pinterest boards. Learn it, love it, do it!

To contrast the above images, look at this example!

Do you SEE the difference? How does this image make you feel versus the above? I don’t know about you, but I think that picture is dreamy! Another great aspect is that it’s not a small or horizontal image, which brings me to…

Good Pin Feature #2: Longer Pins get more news feed space, draw attention, and get more clicks and saves!

Both of these pins present their information in a light and bright color scheme, but the longer one is more likely to get noticed – simply because it’s bigger! Small pin images are easy to scroll past, especially if the image itself isn’t stellar.

I know you all have been on Pinterest and SEEN those beautifully staged, bright images. It’s more important than you think to have lovely Pinterest images. And yes, I know we are all busy and we all get…gasp…lazy…or we just don’t have the time or we think we’ll come back and fix it later (and we never do). But here’s the rub, if you want Pinterest to work for you, if you want people to click on your pins, save them, and follow them to your super duper website where you ultimately want them to be, then you really really need to put a bit more effort into creating drop dead gorgeous pins.

It’s not negotiable. All the search optimization in the world won’t save you if your imagery isn’t nice to look at.

Ask yourself these things when creating a pin for Pinterest:

  1. Is the white balance off? If so, fix it!
  2. Is the brightness off? If so, fix it.
  3.  Is my pin a vertical image, longer than it is wide?
  4.  If designing a graphic rather than using a photograph, ask am I using on trend color palettes? Is all my text legible?
  5.  How does this pin image/graphic make me FEEL? Would I want to click on this image?
  6. How does this pin image/graphic compare to other similar pins of the same category?

Now go forth and re-evaluate your Pinterest pins! And be sure to follow the blog for more social media savviness!

 

5 Pinterest Features You May Not Know About

blog9-8-16pin

Pinterest has been making lots of changes lately! You’ve probably seen the design changes they’ve made to the platfrom recently, but here’s a few features you may have missed! (Note: Not all of these are new, but many people don’t know they exist!)

1) Home Feed “Picked for you” Toggle On/Off

If you think Pinterest got it wrong and has filled your smart newsfeed with pins you don’t want to see, you can now turn this feature off! You’ll still see pins selected based on the interests you chose to follow when you signed up, but Pinterest won’t be suggesting off the wall pins for you anymore. This does limit the discoverability of new pins a little bit, so it’s kind of not great news for small business accounts that are trying to break into the pin pool. However, there are still plenty of ways to get your account and pins noticed and plenty of users who won’t choose to turn off this feature, so I wouldn’t sweat it too much.

2) Pinterest Shop Section

Next to the search bar, there is a little hanburger icon that you can click to filter the section you are searching in or that your newsfeed displays pins from. Now there is a SHOP section! Clicking the words “shop” takes you to a whole page of products from various brands that you can buy RIGHT IN THE PINTEREST PLATFORM. Just browse by category or scroll through the general shop feed, then click add to bag when you find something you want to buy. When you’re done shopping you can view your bag and/or checkout. Just enter your shipping and payment info and you’re good to go! This is going to be huge as Pinterest moves forward in their quest to become an ecommerce mecca! It doesn’t appear to showcase etsy products yet, but I haven’t dug that deep into it. Currently I see mostly big brands, but I have hope that will change. Wouldn’t it be cool to see your products in the shop section?

3) Board Sharing Options

Not new, but perhaps you’ve never even thought to share a whole board as part of your social media marketing strategy! Well, you can! This would be great content to share espcecially on Facebook Pages! You can also send the board to a specific person via Pinterest, email, Facebook, Messenger, Twitter, or simply copy the URL shortlink! Imaging curating a vision board for a client, an inspiration board for a graphic designer, or a seasonal board to your Facebook followers – there are so many ways to use this feature! To access this feature, you must be viewing the board you want to share. If it’s your own board, click the 3 dots for your sharing options. If it’s someone else’s board, click the arrow for sharing options. It’s that easy!

4) Pin Sharing Options

Just like board sharing, you can send specific pins to others! You must be viewing the pin you want to share. Then just click the “send button” with the arrow to access these options:

-send to Pinterest user (type their username in the mini search bar that pops up)

-send via email (type their email address in the mini search bar that pops up)

-send to contact (import from Google, yahoo, Twitter, FB)

-share to FB

-FB messenger

-share to twitter

-copy shortlink for sharing

Choose the one you want to do and follow the prompts!

4) Image Uploader

Want to pin some image or graphic you created? Don’t have the brower pin it button and want to pin something from a website? You can AND it’s easier than ever to access this feature. While viewing your profile, hover over the + button at the top right of the screen. You’ll see options for:

-save from a website

-upload an image

-create an ad

Simply click the right option and follow the prompts. Make sure if you are uploading an image from your computer and actually want the pin to redirect somewhere that you go back in to edit the pin once you’ve save it to a board and input the url you want it to point to, otherwise your pretty picture won’t take anyone anywhere and for us business owners, getting redirect traffic is the whole point! You can also easily access their ad creator here.

5) Visually Similar Search

Say you found a recipe for some muffins, but you look through the caption/rich pin info and don’t quite like the recipe. You can simply click the little magnifying glass at the top right of the pin image to search for visually similar pins – which in this case would be other muffins! You can use this feature to find visually similar places, spaces, artwork, products, etc. Just another handy way to tailor your search on Pinterest!

Pinterest Board Covers (and why they are still important!)

pinterest-board-covers

Pinterest recently rolled out a whole new look! You may have noticed that your homepage looks quite different than it used to with a larger header space which places more emphasis on your profile picture and bio, increased “white space” around boards, a softer more rounded look to the board preview images, and a drastically reduced “cover image” space.

While I really like the cleaner look and feel, I have been lamenting over the cover image size reduction. For business profiles, having a cohesive look and feel of our own that is in line with our brand image is super important! Since Pinterest is a visual platform, having this cohesiveness is part of what makes our business profiles look different from the average user’s profile. It makes our profiles more appealing, put-together, and professional. It reinforces our brand identity and creates brand awareness.

The old model of Pinterest board covers made it super easy to really define a specific “look” or “style” on our home page. The new model? The new model has taken some of the power of that cover image away. Becuase cover images aren’t as big, they aren’t as attention grabbing as before, and they now have to practically compete with the pin preview images shown directly below the board cover image – since in those got an image size increase.

So does that mean board covers aren’t important anymore?

NO!

As much of a pain is currently is to set a board cover image and get it positioned exactly right (leftover glitches from the design transition, which Pinterest help desk has told me they are working to resolve), it is still worthwhile to keep your board cover images set to something visually appealing and relevant to that particular board’s content. And overall, ALL of the board covers should coordinate within a certain theme, style, or color palette that is appropriate for your brand and target audience.

The pin preview images do rotate to show the last two pins you added to that board. The increase in size of these preview images means you need to take extra care to pin “pretty” (visually pleasing) pins to your boards. You can’t always avoid a less than stellar pin image though, especially if you are pinning infographics or lists. My recommendation is to make sure the last two pins to your board at any given time are visually pleasing enough to not throw off the entire balance of your overall look on your home page.

For example, if you’ve got everything nice and set up to have this overal pastel, white, clean, airy look and feel – then having a black or dark colored pin preview image in one of those spaces on any of your boards would really mess up your sweet vibe. If you see this, just go find a pretty pin or two to add to that board real quick so that the other pin that doesn’t really jive with your overall look and feel will get pushed down in your pin collection and be “hidden” when anyone is looking at the main screen. That’s a pain, and not always possible, I know. Just be conscious of it and do the best you can! Ideally, you would never save a pin with a sub-par image… but it happens.

Hopefully, a bigger emphasis on images looking their best will entice pin content creators to up their game!

4 Reasons Why Pinterest is Better Than a Facebook Page

bfsblog8-25-16

1) Pinterest profiles and boards show up in Google searches

If you go to Google to search for say, home paint colors, there is a really good chance that at least one of the top search results will be for a Pinterest board collection of interior paint palettes or something similar. Thus, not only can your pins and boards be found within Pinterest, but they can be found by anyone doing a simple Google search too! Facebook Pages do turn up occasionally, but generally only when you are searching for a specific business, person, or place. Obviously, being able to be found multiple ways increases your traffic potential.

2) Organic reach on Pinterest is easier to attain

We all know that our Facebook Page organic reach is drastically restricted, because Facebook ultimately wants you to pay to promote to your audience. Paying to promote is often a necessity for many businesses, and should be included in your business budget. But, for smaller businesses who are just starting out and don’t have the budget for anything extra, let alone paid ads, organic reach is extremely valuable and needed. While Pinterest does allow you to boost pins via their Promoted Pins feature, I have yet to see as much of a struggle on their platform for exposure as I have on Facebook. Often with Facebook Pages, it can seem like no one is seeing what you’re posting. This isn’t the case with Pinterest. As long you’re optimizing everything for search (board titles, board descriptions, pin descriptions, and your bio) and staying active, then you should be steadily gaining traffic, repins, and followers.

3) Pinterest pins get better over time

In addition to Facebook Page organic reach really sucking, is that you constantly have to feed it with new content. And each new piece of content essentially has to “start over” gaining exposure for your page. Previous posts on Facebook do very little to gain traffic to your page once it’s reached a certain age, unless you get really lucky and have a post go viral – that’s a whole different ballgame. Viral posts don’t play by the rules.

On Pinterest, pins get shared in a phone-tree like manner. For every person who saves your pin, all of their followers can now see it, then one of them saves it and the pin gets a new audience of all of those followers, and so on. All while you continue to add content consistently. So old content just keeps getting circulated around and around. And old content is always in a neatly organized (and optimized!) area so it can be easily found at any time, even if it’s a year old! Where as old Facebook posts on your page just kind of fade into the background, old pins are always waiting to be discovered! Basically, Pinterest incorporates the idea of content going viral into their platform and makes it easy for pins to do so. And, of course, the greater organic reach you can attain, the more traffic you’ll get! All without spending a dime – then you can boost pins to increase that reach even more!

On a side note: Pinterest has updated the way you see repins of your content. Before you could only see direct repins on your original pin. Now, you will see a summary of all the repins shared from your original pin and repins of your pin, on your original pin! So where before you might have seen your pin get a handful of pins (even if it was going on to get thousands more repins you never saw), now you could see repin counts in the hundreds or thousands on your pins and those will reflect the actual number of saves that pin has received across Pinterest. Cool, huh?

4) Pinterest aims to become an ecommerce mecca

Pinterest has become so much more than a place to save ideas. It’s on track to become the largest ecommerce venue, since it’s introduction of buyable pins (which Pinterest recently expanded!). It is already the third leading driver of traffic to ecommerce sites (like Etsy). And even being third, it generates more sales revenue for these sites than Facebook traffic! It’s highly visual nature, viral-like pin sharing, and evergreen pins sets the stage for Pinterest to keep businesses coming to their platform to put their products into the pin pool. Google Images and Shopping may just be a thing of the past. Pinterest is Google Images on steroids and with the ability to buy directly from within the platform. If you haven’t checked out the new Pinterest Shop section, go look at it, it’s pretty cool! Wouldn’t you love to see YOUR products there one day?! The Shop section is pretty new, so I can only image it will grow larger and more popular by the day. Before it gets too large, you’ll want to be sure to have a rock solid Pinterest strategy that is gaining you new followers and traffic everyday. You don’t want to be the last one on the bus, when there is even more competition for seats!

5 Things You Need To Stop Doing On Social Media: for businesses

bfsblog8-18-16

1) Mixing personal with business

One of the biggest things I see when I am doing social media consults or critiques for clients is that they often mix content that is more personal in nature with content meant for their customers/clients.

It’s good to let your personality shine through, but not by posting photos of what you had for breakfast, your new outfit, or even your kids. Save those posts for your personal pages and profiles. Let your personality shine through in your words, the way you speak through text online and engage with your online followers, and your branding.

As a general rule, unless you are in the food industry, keep the food pics off your business profiles. If you want to add a personal touch, and it’s appropriate for your business social media strategy, post pics of yourself, but not your kids. And new shoes or outfits? While adorable, unless you made it with your own two hands to sell under your business name and are modeling them, don’t post those either.

2) Posting content that is irrelevant to your target market

Posting personal content is often a symptom of “I don’t know what to post!” syndrome. So, what SHOULD you post about?

Things that are relevant to your target market/audience. Who buys what you are selling? You should KNOW this answer BEFORE you start a social media campaign. You have to know who you are trying to reach and appeal to before you can possibly know HOW to appeal to them. Do your research.

Is your target audience comprised of stay at home moms with toddlers? Perhaps kid’s DIY projects, preschooling tips, kids snack recipes, etc. would interest them.

Is your target market newly engaged women? Perhaps engagement rings styles, wedding décor, guest book ideas, etc. would interest them.

Get in your target buyer’s head and post things that will make them stop to see what you have to say!

3) Posting too much content that has little to no value

Another symptom of “I don’t know what to post!” syndrome is posting too much content that really doesn’t offer any lasting value.

Memes, feel good quotes, and “have a nice day!” type posts come to mind. Don’t get me wrong, these are great posts to sprinkle lovingly into the mix of content you are sharing, but if 40% or more of your content are these kinds of posts, then you seriously need to start mixing it up a little.

Aim for a balance of content, comprised of supplementary content (shared photos, links, and videos), original content (informational posts or graphics that you wrote/made and promotional posts) and minor posts (memes, quotes, comics, etc.). A good rough breakdown of what that would look like is, of all the posts made in a week or month’s time: 10% minor, 20% original, 70% supplementary

4) Posting inconsistently

When you are first starting out, and especially if you don’t know your target audience, it can be really tough to come up with enough content to fill your social media calendar on a daily basis. Some people post like crazy, then go radio silent for a while, then come back and post like crazy again. Others might post once every 3 or 4 days, routinely.

The key to a good social media strategy is to post daily (or on some defined schedule based on the social site). Regardless of whether anyone is engaging with your posts or not. Using a post scheduler, like Buffer, Hootsuite, Tailwind, or Later, can really help you stay on top of your posts. You basically can sit down once and map out your posts for a week (or more) at a time. Set it and forget it, then you can spend your time doing other things such as replying to comments or working on other business needs.

5) Trying to be everywhere at once

Probably the biggest reason for posting inconsistencies isn’t that you don’t know what to post or you don’t have the tools/time to post. Probably the BIGGEST reason is that you’re trying to be on all the big social sites and build a presence on all of them at the same time.

DON’T DO THIS!

You can claim your profile names, so no one else snatches up your preferred handle, sure. But you don’t need to be posting on all social sites from the get go. Do your research and decide which social platform is the most promising for your business outreach.

Some things to consider are:

Which platform has users that fit in your target audience? For instance, if you’re trying to reach 18 year olds, you might want to check out snapchat. If you’re trying to reach 30 or 40 year olds, you probably want to be on Facebook.

Which platform fits your content sharing strategy? If your main focus is video, then Periscope, FB Live, SnapChat or YouTube are all great options. If your main focus is stunning photography, then Pinterest or Instagram is where you want to be. If your main focus is building a community, then Facebook or Twitter is where you want to be.

Pick one social media platform. Build your following and get your groove going so that you and consistently post valuable content that is relevant to your target market. THEN once you can run that profile in your sleep, set up your secondary social site and do it again.

How to Have Your Social Media and Automate it Too!

bppin4-26-16Wouldn’t it be great if you could get things done without lifting a finger?

For instance, if it’s a nice sunny day, your grass would automatically get mowed without you having to call a service or do it yourself?

Or if it’s a particularly warm day and you aren’t home, your thermostat would automatically adjust itself to help save energy and money?

Or if you post a really cool image to Instagram it would automatically also be shared with your Twitter and Facebook followers too?

Guess what, these things CAN be done! Well, maybe not the grass mowing thing. But the others? Absolutely!

Have you ever heard of a program called IFTTT? It stands for “if this, then that” and it is utterly amazing!

IFTTT has over 90 applications you can connect to the service and use to create (or browse for) “recipes” to automate home, office, and social media tasks! Once you have your recipes set up, and verify that they work (some recipes seem to be broken, but most of them seem to work just fine), you won’t have to lift a pinky finger in the future to seamlessly share between social accounts or adjust your home thermostat or even turn down your ringer when you get to work!

IFTTT will do it all for you. IFTTT can free up lots of time you used to spend doing daily, routine, monotonous tasks AND it makes sure your tasks are done consistently! So when you normally might have forgotten or not had the time to do a certain task, IFTTT will still be there, quietly working in the background.

I LOVE this program! I am not at all affiliated with IFTTT and am not getting paid for this endorsement. I just started using it for my own social media tasks, fell in love, and decided to share what I know about it with all of you!

I use IFTTT to do these tasks automatically for me:

-Share Instagram Pictures to my Twitter Timeline

-Share new YouTube uploads to my Twitter Timeline

-Share my Tweets and ReTweets to a Buffer Feed (which is set up tp post automatically to my FB page 3 times a day).

With just these 3 recipes, I keep my Twitter feed and my FB Page full! I don’t have to manually post everywhere or schedule posts for multiple platforms. I basically put up my own original content on either IG or YouTube and IFTTT does the rest. I also can spend time looking for good shareable content on twitter and simply retweet it to have it share automatically to my FB page,via IFTTT connected to my Buffer account which is connected to my FB page (kinda reminds me of the lyrics to “Dem Bones”, haha).

Anyway, if you’d like to get a behind the scenes look at IFTTT before signing up for an account, you should check out my Wednesday Workshop videos! To get access, you’ll need to sign up HERE (just wait for the pop up)! You’ll get immediate access to all previous videos and be on my list to automatically receive all future workshops, tips, and more!

Oh and if you want to learn more about Buffer, you can click HERE to watch my free tutorial!

I am sorry that I can’t do anything about your lawn. It’s just not my specialty!

Pinterest for Business: 10 Quick Tips

 

10-quick-tipsPinterest is a fantastic platform for finding ideas and inspiration, and that makes it the perfect online platform to get your products/content seen and shared! If you are a creative business owner, and you haven’t considered Pinterest for marketing your products or services, you need to! Pins never “expire” and they have the potential to reach thousands upon thousands of potential buyers in a phone-tree like system of pins and repins. However, there is more to it than just sticking your products on a board and walking away. Read the following 10 Quick Tips to help your pins and profile get found on Pinterest!

1) Fill out your Bio with more than your weblink

SEO works on Pinterest too! Put a short description of you and your business utilizing keywords that are relevant to your business/products/content. See more tips for filling out your Bio here.

2) Utilize the search bar to find Board Titles and Keywords for Board Descriptions

Speaking of Keywords, that search bar is a great place to find them! Start typing in what you want your board title to be. Look at the search suggestions and choose the best fit for your board’s content. The search suggestions that pop up tell you what Pinterest users are commonly looking for. If you don’t see a search suggestion pop up, choose a different board title.

3) Avoid using the ”other” category for boards as much as possible

Pinterest decides who can see your pins as suggested content based on your SEO and your board’s category. Choose the one that is the most relevant. For instance, if you are a graphic designer, choose art. If you are a social media guru, choose technology. If you sell crochet wearables, choose women’s or men’s fashion or kids and parenting if you only make children’s sizes.

4) Make new Boards secret until they are full enough to be revealed

Don’t annoy your followers by pin dumping on them! Anytime you make a new board, make it secret so that you can pin to your heart’s content without showing up a thousand times in your follower’s feed. Toggle it to public once you’ve filled it up and you’ll still show up in their feed, but only once – which is plenty!

5) Aim for 30 pins on each board to start.

Create enough interest in your new boards by having 30 pins, give or take, before toggling it to public. Why 30? Once you create a board with 30 pins, you’ll be able to see that it’s a good enough visual “chunk” of material for viewers to digest. Fewer and you’re board looks empty, which can be construed as boring and cause potential followers to click away.

6) Aim for 15-18 boards with content that your target market would be interested in.

Like the general rule above of 30 pins per board, 15-18 baseline boards is a good visual chunk to make your profile look and feel well rounded out. It makes you look established, even if you only are just started and have a handful of followers. It says to potential followers, “hey! I have things to share and I’m sticking around!” As far as content that your target market would be interested in – Marketing 101. If you need help figuring this out, I’d really recommend checking out Allison Marhsal’s post here on her blog Wonderlass. She even provides a free printable worksheet! Although this is geared towards bloggers, you could totally adapt this for your product or service based biz!

7) Use 2 -3 keyword rich sentences in your pin captions.

2-3 Sentences is plenty of info for a caption. You don’t need to write a novel and you don’t want a caption that is uninteresting or, GASP, blank! Use Keywords to improve your Pinterest SEO, but don’t cram them in to your captions. Use a couple or a few within a casual, conversational, story-like caption.

8) “Sprinkle” your original pins on any board that is relevant.

You CAN pin the same pin to more than one board. Even though Pinterest will flag you and say “PSST! You’ve already pinned this!” Ignore them. Pin it again, to a different board, as long the pin will flow well on that other board too. Why? Some people follow whole accounts. But some people only follow specific boards. Pinning your own original content in multiple places increases the likelihood that those people who only follow specific boards will see your content.

9) Keep your brand image consistent by choosing similarly styled cover photos.

Your Pinterest look and feel can be controlled by the use of board cover images with similar colors, layout, typography, etc. Choose cover images consistent with your branding style/colors. Doing this will also make your Pinterest profile as a whole look very pulled together – like a classy lady! Alternatively, you can create branded pin graphics to use as board covers with a program like Canva. If you do this, make sure the pin has your weblink put into the URL field.

10) Organize your boards!

Help your viewers find what they are most interested in by keeping similar board topics together. Also keep seasonal or holiday specific boards at the top, and toggle them secret again once the season/holiday has passed. Make sure your most relevant biz/blog boards (or the ones with mostly/all of your original content on them) are also front and center (somewhere in the top row or in the middle of the first 3 rows).

BONUS TIP: Links put in Pinterest descriptions ARE clickable. Use this space to add additional weblinks where you or your business can be found on the internet, but ALWAYS put your primary weblink in the URL field, NOT the description field.
