Last time around I’ve shared with you the benefits a blogger can get from Pinterest. Since social media marketing has expanded in just a short period of time, many tend to go overboard with its use.
Here are some Pinterest etiquette tips you should remember courtesy of Susan Wells.
- Give credit. When you pin on your Pinterest board, always give credit to the rightful owner. By recognizing the owner or the site, it will definitely be well-appreciated. Also, not giving credit violates copyright laws.
- Stay social. Do comment and follow other users. By this way, you can connect with different people and this may definitely help increase your audience.
- Don’t share all your work. If you’re going to share your posts, make it minimal as too much self-promotion will affect the number of followers you have. Post your interesting posts but don’t do it excessively please. As Wells pointed out, no one wants to see stuff like discount furniture on Pinterest.
- Avoid excessive pinning. Stick to a couple of pins and share only the ones that are valuable to other people as well. Excessive pinning will irritate your followers and will unfollow you.
- Use captions well. By using captions, it will be much easier for visitors to identify, associate, and enjoy your posts. Use hashtags so it will be more search-friendly.
