How to market with Pinterest
This blog post gives an example of promoting a political party with Pinterest. Using the graphic below, pin it to display some bragging points about Canada. The implication is that the citizens will have fewer bragging points unless the present government stays in power.
5 Characteristics of a successful pin
Read the Financial Post article.
See the above graphic in Pinterest.
1. Have a picture that jumps out at people and is closely related to the subject of the pin.
♦ I went to FreeImages.com to get this picture of the Canadian Flag
♦ Sometimes I go to the Adobe Stock to get high-quality photos for $3 each.
2. Have an attention-grabbing, descriptive title of 6 words or less
♦ The percentage of people who read your title is much higher than the percentage of people who read your article. So, put a lot of thought into it.
3. Have the main content of your pin displayed in such a way that it can quickly be assimilated by your target audience.
♦ Infographics such as the one you see here are popular and effective.
4. Tell people where they can go for more information.
5. Use PhotoShop or a free image editing program such as GIMP to create an artistically-pleasing image.
