3 Ways To Use Pinterest With EtsyLast Updated: September 23, 2014
Pinterest is one of the simplest ways for Etsy sellers to promote their crafts and items. That’s because Pinterest users like to buy the sorts of things that Etsy sells. It’s a no-brainer to promote one on the other. Here are a few ways to get Pinterest working for you.
Open a Pinterest Business Account
Having a Pinterest Business account can give a lot of added advantages, like promoting your business name. It’s also required by the terms and conditions on Pinterest. To set up the business account, just visit business.pinterest.com. Although it might seem obvious, you may be surprised how many people don’t pay attention to the details.
Participate in the Community
Pinterest is a community. When sellers market, it’s important that they remember to do more than just promote their own ambitions and products, but contribute. Contributions on Pinterest include starting pin-boards frequently and posting items that are consistent with your brand’s image. Communicate with other members through following and re-pinning. This affirms the other Pinterest user that they have something in common with your brand, and similar interests.
Form Group Boards
Group boards can be a great way to increase awareness of your brand, particularly if they become popular. Start a group board around a topic that’s relevant to your Etsy, or other eCommerce products. Invite others, and you never know! They might just be people who want to contribute too. You don’t have to limit yourself to only one, either.
