We’re talking Pinterest today!
I was hesitant to do this episode because I’m a little mad at Pinterest right now. Anyone else? It’s just not getting me the views and the sales that it used to!
I realized that probably just means that I need to learn some new strategies, so here we are. I’ve brought Kate Ahl on to answer all of our Pinterest questions.
Episode #64 Takeaways
- Pinterest as a business is still doing well.
- We’re never going to get back the traffic of 2015, and that’s okay.
- Followers matter more than they used to.
- Use story pins wisely.
- Short videos get great engagement.
- Fewer pins per day are better than before.
- Consider using scheduling tools.
- Pin things to relevant and specific boards.
- Hashtags aren’t super important on Pinterest.
- Keep looking at your data.
I hope you are able to take some new strategies out of this interview to help up your Pinterest game.
I would love to connect with you! You can find me on Instagram at @not_so_wimpy_entrepreneur.
