Over the next few weeks we will be posting a series on the 10 commandments of Pinterest. As we have mentioned in previous posts, Pinterest is a powerful social media tool that can help you find a community of friends and followers who share your interests. Since Pinterest is still a fairly new social network, we’ve decided to educate our readers on the rules of Pinterest and how to become a Pinterest rock star!
Like any social media platform out there, Pinterest has it’s own crowd of management tools and tools that make it easy to feed your Pinterest addiction on the go. The best thing you can do for your business as you are trying to improve your Pinterest strategy is to take advantage of all of these tools. In this post we will discuss the tools that are out there and what each tool does.
Pin it & Pinterest App
Pinterest has some great tools that you can download off their site, there’s the “pin it” button for your browser toolbar and the “follow me on Pinterest” button that you can add to your site or blog. The Pin it browser tool lets you use Pinterest when you are searching other parts of the web and makes it easier than ever to share your content to Pinterest. The follow me button is an effortless way to get all of your current readers to follow you on Pinterest as well. This will give loyal fans another outlet to interact with you and your brand.
With our mobile obsessed world it is also vital that you download the Pinterest app for your smartphone or tablet computer. The Pinterest app allows you to keep up with your followers on the move. You can do everything on the Pinterest app that you can do on the full website with the added benefit of having the ability to take pictures on your mobile device and uploading them directly to Pinterest. This gives you the freedom to give your Pinterest followers real time updates and also gives you another avenue to add more personality to your business.
