Say No To - I Love MeAs with any social platform, people get bored when brands only share self-serving content. Repin users content. Avoid solely 'pinning' self-promotional content as it appears like spam.
Plan AheadThink before you share. Be sharp and strategic about your brand's Pinterest messaging and concept before launching your brand's page.
Cross Promote But CarefullyShare your pins on Facebook. Google+ and Twitter, but not every single one. Choose only the most interesting images to share on other platforms to avoid over-promotion.
Connect With Your CommunityGo beyond the re-pin! Brands should follow, like and comment on other Pinterest users content to maintain a two-way conversation with their audience.
Pin What People Are Talking AboutHome decor, colors, organization, infogarphics, quotes and holidays are popular topics on Pinterest. Find ways to connect your brand's messaging to topics already popular on the platform.
Use Boards To Segment Your AudienceShare different boards on your Pinterest page to showcase content by lifestyle or technology. Different audience segments are interested in different aspects of the brand; use boards to help users navigate and find what interests them most.
Enable Your Community To Discover Things They Love And Go Do Them OfflinePlain, clear and simple; share inspiring things online in order to drive the same interest and passion offline.
Use A Quality Over Quantity ApproachThe most effective brands using Pinterest understand that less sometimes means more. Instead of creating hundreds of boards and pinning many items, they strategically 'pin' content that is appropriate, creative and shareable.
RepinPin directly from a source and/or credit the source in the pin caption. This can be as simple as including via ABC in the caption.
