#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.

Pinterest Data You Can’t Ignore: The Ultimate Guide to Pinterest [infographic]

May 8, 2012 Interior Designer Chat founder Barbara Segal will Host the topic:   Pinterest And Blogging ~ Is This The New Designer’s PR?    With a marketing and public relations back ground, matched with a sizeable following on Pinterest,  Barbara will lead the discussion on the importance of understand why you should be blogging with Pinterest in mind.   Designers and curating,  story telling,  pinning with a strategy from your own blog,  how to fuel your blog followers with Pinterest, and why you should be collaborating with others boards.   In the design industry,  blogging and Pinterest are a beautiful thing!  Now more than ever Pinterest can bring your personal brand more attention.

Barbara will share personal tips along with other selected industry #Pinterest Experts.  Pinning pretty pictures all day long, is not what Pinterest is about. And even the Social Media so called guru’s are not quite getting it.  There is lots of story telling going on in Pinterest and it’s an art form and new social media platform that may just blow twitter out of the water.   Studies have shown that users spend more time on Pinterest than on Twitter, LinkedIn and Google+ combined, and new data reveals that the (ahem) interest in Pinterest is now so strong that the platform is outperforming both Twitter and Facebook for click-through revenue.   If you think this is all  hype, we’ll be discussing globally with those that say it’s not.

Pinterest is driving more referral traffic on the web than Google+, YouTube, Reddit, and LinkedIn combined.  Source – Marketing ProfsAs they say, a picture is worth a thousand words and Pinterest’s phenomenal growth is a testimony to the power of  visuals.  It is up to us as designer professionals and B2B marketers to harness that power and use it to tell our stories and increase engagement with our prospects and customers.  Brands are leaping onto Pinterest, setting up pages to appeal to their customer demographics and looking to  form collaborations.  Nielsen reported that Pinterest had 16.1 million unique visitors in January in the United States alone, double the number it had in November.  The most noteworthy thing about the site is its engagement.  The users that use it, use it voraciously.   The Pinterest audience can very quickly translate interests into back links to your business website or blog,  new B2B relationships and engagement, and online selling opportunities.  If you are a content creator, blogger,  success on Pinterest will mean making an investment in understanding Pinterest users, their tools, and how “pinnable” your site  actually is.
