FAVE INFOGRAPHIC: The Ultimate @Pinterest Cheat Sheet

Published by:

If you’re using Pinterest for business, you probably want to make sure you’re getting and providing the most out of your pins. The makers of Pinerly put together an infographic I actually want to print out and use (or at least add to my tactical guide).

A few highlights:

  • Did you know the best time to pin on weekends is Saturday morning? What about the best weekday? That would be Thursday.
  • The best pins evoke a call-to-action and use short words with simple context
  • If you know the cost of something you’re pinning, add it in your description so it posts on the photo.
  • The best images target emotion.
  • Use searchable keywords in board names and make sure you have a compelling photo for each board.

FAVE SOCIAL: @Pinerly wants to help manage your @Pinterest addiction

Published by:

Looking for a way to FINALLY manage your Pinterest addiction? Pinerly hopes to be the answer with their pin-friendly dashboard.

Pinterest now accounts for 3.6 percent of referral traffic, as a comparison Twitter accounts for 3.61 percent. (via PR Daily) With all that referring comes a lot of content. I mean A LOT. You can only see the “101 ways to tie a scarf” pin so many times before you lose interest. I mean, pinterest. So, what’s a pinner to do?

You know this is the awkward transition before I give you an answer, right?

Pinerly, currently in private beta, offers several ways to take pinning to the next level. You will be able to:

Follow pinners

Unfollow pinners (essential if you want to keep a quality stream)

View popular pins (keep an eye on those top trends!)

Schedule pins — I love this. A great alternative to flooding the stream when you get in pin mode.
