#IntDesignerChat July 31 TOPIC: Building Your Personal Brand With Pinterest

30 Jul

Obviously there’s tons of opportunity for the Interior Designer Chat communities visually stimulating businesses on Pinterest.   However, to do it right, you still need to use some strategy!

The Top 5 Followed Industries of Pinterest are:

1. Home Decor

2: Art

3: Design

4: Women’s Apparel

5: Photography

This week  Interior Designer Chat founder, Barbara Segal share’s how her marketing senses start to tingle at the many mistakes being made on Pinterest.   Many we’ve discussed in prior #IntDesignerChat Topics.

  1. Pins with no descriptions-this is a great opportunity for keywords
  2. No unique boards
  3. No board descriptions. This is also an opportunity for keywords as well as a an opportunity to add your website as a follow us and a “pin it” button on your blog or products
  4. Businesses and pinners uploading pics but not linking (or crediting the source)
  5. Posting all of your own blog posts, portfolio information and products to your board so everything is obviously a self promotion
  6. Writing a wall of text – balance is important as users are here primarily to view and share images
  7. Not promoting your pins via other social networking sites like Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin,  and etc.
  8. Flooding Pinterest with too many pins
  9. Posting every pin to Twitter.  Spammy  to all your  Twitter follows
  10. Only pinning your own items but not repining, liking, following people, or commenting on others’ pin – No user interaction.

Join this Tuesday #IntDesignerChat with Barbara Segal as Host.  Barbara will share advice on:   

  • How to become known as a thought leader in your niche by engaging  and pinning regularly to Pinterest.
  • Using a strategies that show you’re personal brand/brand  is  current and interesting.
  • How to get re-pins to other popular pin boards to build  your business.
  • How to easily drive traffic back to your website or blog by sharing your industry knowledge.
  • The power of collaboration boards.  Why you should start your own for branding, events, and cause marketing.

#IntDesignerChat May 10, 2011 Topic: How Are You Taking Your Business From Ordinary To Extraordinary?

8 May

If you don’t come from that place of pure conviction that your product is the best fit for your clients current challenge,  then the person sitting opposite you definitely won’t see you as their solution provider.

What’s in it for me?  That’s the question that all prospects ask, all of the time.   And that’s the question that many design professionals and industry partners forget to answer on their social media working profiles, websites, in their brochures and elsewhere.  Your marketing words aren’t working if they force others to ask: “And your point is…?”
