Pinterest Baby Step #4 Your Profile

Posted Wed, September 19, 2012 by Julie Short


Baby Step #4 – Your Profile
As a refresher from Pinterest Baby Step #3 – What Boards to Have by checking out these new postings on WebRevelation’s Boards.Follow Me on Pinterest
Entrepreneur Motivation – who doesn’t need a BEAUTIFUL reminder that all we need is a shift in thinking to make changes happen!  
Social Media – Interesting marketing facts on Pinterest
Customer Appreciation Gifts – Diaper wreath-ideal for those businesses that have mostly women for their clients 
I am hoping that you’ve established your boards & started posting on them.  It may take some time to fill them in of which I have to remind myself to do.  My post-it-note on reminder system:
Now on to learning Baby Step #4 – Your Profile.  Having a complete profile will make it the easiest for pinners to find you and know what you do.
 Starting at your business board page, you’ll see in the middle of the screen “Edit Your Profile” – Select it.
The fields are pretty intuitive to complete and only a 10 step process.
The most important one is to make sure that the HIDE your Pinterest profile from search engines is off.  If it is OFF, then search engines can find your information!  Happy Days!
I’ve taken it easy on you today just to make sure you come back for Pinterest Baby Step #5 – Who to Follow which will wrap up this series on Pinterest.  If you have questions or need inspiration, make sure to comment on the blog and I’ll get back to you!

Pinterest Baby Step #2 - Terminology

Posted Wed, August 15, 2012 by Julie Short

I figured to make sure that we are all on the same playing field, a good old teaching technique as defining terminology would be critical.  The 3 main terms used when running around Pinterest are

Pin                  Board                   Follow
With the agreed upon assumption that Pinterest really is the expert on Pinterest, I’ll let them define what a Pin is:
“What is a pin?
A pin is an image added to Pinterest. A pin can be added from a website using the Pin It button, or you can upload images from your computer. Each pin added using the Pin It button links back to the site it came from.”
Here is a favorite pin of mine:
Orange arrow = image that has been pinned
Aqua arrow = comment made by the person who originally pinned it
Green arrow = where the pin came from and where it was posted to
This pin’s intention was to motivate us to walk a mile, eat that banana, or lift that 5 lb dumbbell now because starting is infinitely better than not starting.  I would submit to you readers, that beginning your pinterest endeavors now is better than not starting at all.  So give yourself a round of applause for even just reading this blog post for it is a baby step start!  And as Jennifer Hudson says “It turns out that even the smallest changes can have a big impact.” 
Now where did I put that pin? Oh, on a Board!  Just like you have filing folders in your filing cabinet, folders on your Widows Explorer, or your coupon organizers for those Extreme Couponers amongst us; Pinterest has an organizing tool called the Board.  The Board is where you organize and file all pins that you feel are within the same group.  Defining your boards will be key in your business marketing strategy on Pinterest (which I’ll talk about in the Pinterest Baby Step #3 – What Boards to Have?)
You’ll see from my personal Pinterest account that I have the following boards 
Fairy Party
Food (I really can’t remember what the difference is between cooking and food board smiley)
Timothy (my son)
Paper decorations (who knows why I have this one….)
1. All of each of these areas can be edited by clicking on the “Edit”.
2. You can have an unlimited amount of Boards
3. You have a running tally of Boards, Pins, Likes, Activity, Followers, & Following in the row directly above the board area.
Which beautifully leads me to define Follow.  “I will follow him. Follow him wherever you may go… (Not familiar with this song?  Check out Whoopi Goldberg’s version) 
Pinterest Follow is truly not complicated.  When you choose to Follow someone or group or business, you will be able to see all of their pins. They will not show up on any of your boards until you repin it.  We’ll talk about the strategy of who and why to follow someone (Pinterest Baby Step #5 – Who to Follow)
That’s all the “terms” you need to know.  So no quiz or exam – just start perusing Pinterest to see what sparks your interest. Come back for Pinterest Baby Step #3 – What Boards to Have? To learn strategies as to what boards to create.

2. Select the “Request an Invite”
3. Sign up for the invite by entering your Twitter account email address. Then select the “Request Invitation”.  Spoiler note - If you don’t have a business Twitter page currently, you will need to set one of those up before you sign up for an account.  They accept Twitter and Facebook accounts, but currently they won’t accept a Facebook Business page login…..So email me if you need help with that!
