Networking on Pinterest
Yesterday I discussed pinning books in a similar genre to yours in order to begin networking with people who are interested in that genre. Here are three more ways to network with Pinterest users:
1. Seek out people that might be interested in your genre. For example, if your book is about gardening, look for Pinners with gardening Boards and follow them. As you see pins from them that you like and that fit with your own interests, repin them. The more you interact with others, the more they will notice you and begin to reciprocate by following you back and repinning your pins.
2. Add a “Pin It” button to your website or blog to encourage others to pin what you share. Pinterest provides the button here: http://business.pinterest.com/widget-builder/#do_pin_it_button
3. Share great pins across other platforms — i.e. Twitter, Facebook, Google+. This will help you gain followers from the other locations if they like what you share.
The best way to learn is to start pinning and watching what, how and when others are pinning. The more present you are, the more you will begin to connect with other Pinners. And whatever you do, don’t forget to have fun!
