Ember, the house Brownie, has been dusting off some new concepts and was happy to share one with me. Are you using keywords in your Pinterest posts for better searches?
What are keywords and how they are similar to hashtag words? First of all, keywords are words I associate to my products. So when someone is searching for me with the words (for example, my keywords could be doll, porcelain, or handmade) the chances are better that my products will be found.
Those same words could also be hashtag words but with the # symbol before it. Keywords and hashtags are both tools for the search engine to use in helping to locate me in cyberspace.
But what really sparked my inspiration in what Ember shared with me is a place I never thought to add keywords. That was to the naming of my images. How quickly I just drag and drop over a picture to pin to Pinterest when I am creating new pins. Stop!!! Take a moment... rename that file/image name to some key words. For example, I might rename the picture porcelain doll handmade.jpg. Right there I have made it easier for the Pinterest search engine to find me. Just one more baby step towards being seen.
This way your followers, when they click on your pin can go right directly to your FB page or Instagram and see more of what you offer. This is another way for your followers to find you and keep up on your latest creations.
Or are your boards arranged so when anyone comes looking for you, they see what you create first? It is, after all, YOUR ball and you should be the one shining.
Here are a couple of hints from the Dowager on how to improve your looks:
A way to look like a princess is by making all the boards relate to a theme or what your business is. If you come to my doll page you will find everything is Doll, Fairy, or Art themed. By the time you leave my boards you know exactly what I do and how it relates to my dolls. Whether or not I am an expert you will decide, but it will be apparent to anyone who comes to my page as to what I do and that I am proficient.
Snoop has found several articles about Instagram and Pinterest while searching for stories from something called the World Wide Web... we don't know what that means, but he swears by it...
