No Time for Social Media? Not enough time in the day to keep up with all your social media tasks?

You’ve heard it before, “Your Business Must Be On Social Media“, but you’ve tried it and just couldn’t make it work. It took up too much time and just didn’t seem to be worth the effort. Can you relate?

Unfortunately social media is something you must do if you want your business to thrive. Why you ask…

In today’s world people search for your business on line before making a buying decision. Personally I don’t like to do business with someone who isn’t on social media. Even if they have been told about your business from someone else if the do a search for you and can’t find you the chances of them calling you or walking into your store are pretty slim. Social proof is very important to the decision making process in our internet connected world. People want to know you can be trusted.

Don’t get stuck behind your desk all day!

But that still leaves the question where do I find the time?

Who wants to be stuck behind their desk all day long?

Experts say we must be posting daily, in some cases 2 or 3 times per day. The good news is that for small business owners who have a following of less that 10,000 once per day on Facebook is effective! The idea is to be present and active. Interact with people, like, comment, share and answer questions.

Pinterest has certainly caught my attention, how about you?

I hear many people say that’s there just isn’t enough time in the day to build a consistent presence on all of these platforms. I couldn’t agree more, that’s why you need to understand the benefits of Pinterest so that you can make that informed decision about where to invest your time on a daily and/or weekly basis.

1) It is a very simple platform for building relationships and learning how to influence people. We humans think in pictures, I believe this is one of the reasons Pinterest is doing as well as they are. Sharing pictures around what you like allows people to get to know you and build the know, like and trust factor.

2) You can increase your reach by strategically following the movers and shakers in your niche. Find them, get to know them and create pins that will attract their attention. You can study their boards to find out what they “like”!

3) It is easy to brand on Pinterest for bigger exposure. Take a look at what some of the big companies are doing, you can adapt their techniques to your own Pinterest boards. Check out the Starbucks example http://pinterest.com/starbucks/ What are people liking? What are they repinning? Take the time to look, study what’s working for them. Search for a big company in your niche that is active on Pinterest and pattern your Pinterest boards after theirs. You don’t want to copy exactly what they are doing, find the patterns and repeat.

4) Connecting other social media profiles with Pinterest. They have made it super simple, you can sign in with either Facebook or Twitter. You can post to either of the platforms with a simple click of a button. I love to share all my “pins” on Twitter.

download5) You can encourage liking and commenting on your pins and boards! Find out what people’s interests are, then you can easily have people active on your boards. Attach notes to your pins, insert a call to action in your comments, test what works well with your audience. I love my dogs and on a very regular basis pin stories from the Animal Rescue Site. They are heart warming pet rescue stories and they are often re-pinned and commented upon and it is something that is near and dear to my heart.

We have an special offer to you the “Facebook List” just click the Link below:  http://justclicknow.ca/11IjTOR

 

“Would love to hear your comments and ideas right here on the blog. Just the link below to leave a comment.”

 

Are you looking for a Pinterest invite? I have some good news for you. An invitation is no longer required. They have passed the “beta” stage and now the platform is wide open.

 

So why do you want to use Pinterest?

Pinterest is a social bookmarking tool that allows people to share visual content. One of the main reasons that it’s so popular and has skyrocketed to the top of the rankings is that it is very, very easy to use. It’s VERY simple to use.

People share pictures and videos on Pinterest. Things that interest them, things they know their friends will enjoy. People share what inspires them! Sharing on Pinterest is called “re-pin”, and you definitely want your Pins to be re-pinned.

Four topics that are re-pinned often are quotes, recipes, cute pet pictures and home decor. Where possible you want to create pins for your business that will be appropriate for the top categories. Example quote that was re-pinned 52,000 + times was…

“Because someone doesn’t love you the way you want them to, doesn’t mean they don’t love you will all they have.”A “mega closet” picture was re-pinned 25,000 + times.

For business it is a blockbuster, simply because you can enhance your brand with pictures on Pinterest. When you post pictures on Pinterest you link them back to your website, a blog post or even a sales page.

Pinterest is much easier for companies who have products that you can take pictures of but there is always ways to take pictures of what’s happening in your business. Whole Foods is an excellent example of how to use Pinterest to build your brand.

Whole Foods have 45 boards that surround the topic of food. Here are a few examples…

  • “Who Wants Dinner?”,
  • “Eat Your Veggies”,
  • “How does your garden grow?”,
  • “Cheese is the Bee’s Knees”,
  • “Edible Celebrations”

and many more. They are creative and have made their whole Pinterest page fun!

There is a section called “Our Favorite Books” each book they recommend also links back to Amazon so people who are interest can quickly and easily purchase a book. You can do this with your own products, insert links back to pages on your website where people can purchase your products. On my Pinterest account we have a page of Video Quick Tips, each tip contains a link where people can go and purchase the videos. Do some keyword research and discover what Pinterest board titles will work best for you.

Love Pinterest – 4 Tools to Make It Easier & Faster

Everywhere you turn people are talking about Pinterest.  It’s officially the 3rd largest social networking the world and it refers more than double the traffic of YouTube, Google+ and LinkedIn combined.

The average user now spends more time on Pinterest than Facebook and Twitter combined. However the biggest complaint I hear is that it takes so much time!

Pinterest – 4 Tools to Make It Easier and Faster, check them out.  I personally love each and every one of them.

#1 Pinerly

You will need to request an invitation to Pinerly.  Go to their website at http://www.Pinerly.com and submit your email address.  You will be sent to a second screen and see this message.

“Pinerly is not open to the public. Share your unique link on Facebook and Twitter to get ahead of your competition! Invite friends, co-workers, family… you get the point. Friends qualify you for an earlier invite and bonus features. Please note, signing up from the same computer multiple times will not count =) “

Once you have your account you will easily be able to:

  • Easily compare click-throughs, likes and re-pins for campaigns
  • Pin incredible suggested content
  • Follow interesting new people
  • View valuable Pinterest tips

#2 Pinterest Bookmarklet

I have another blog post on how to install this. This is one way it can really be faster to pin!

Once installed in your browser, the “Pin It” button lets you grab an image from any website and add it to one of your pinboards. When you pin from a website, we automatically grab the source link so we can credit the original creator.

#3 Pinstamatic

Pinstamatic really allows you to dress up your pins, show a little bit more of who you are by adding more content to each pin.

Get more from Pinterest by adding so much more than photos.

You can now add locations, music, quotes, calendar dates, Twitter profile links, sticky notes and websites. http://pinstamatic.com/

 

#4  Pinvolve 

This is an application that allows you to maintain Pinterest and Facebook together. It bridges the gap between the two, making it less work for you. I immediately installed on this one on our Butterfly Networking Facebook Fan Page.
