YAY! Now that you’re all caught up and you have your Pinterest account, profile, and board set up, let’s get Pinning! Pinterest 201 covers creating pins, the parts of a pin, keywords, SEO, and amazing Pinterest tools to save time and make your Pinterest presence look professional.
When using Pinterest for your business, there’s more than just repinning inspo before a session. While that is still helpful, Pinterest favors creating fresh content. There are four parts of a pin when creating a new pin: graphic, title, description, and link. It’s so important that you are using all four of these parts to optimize your Pins.
When creating your pins, using keywords and having a good understanding of SEO will help your Pins consistently show up to monthly viewers. Pinterest is the number two search engine behind Google. If your photography business isn’t on Pinterest, then you’re missing out being found by your ideal client.
