In my last post, I shared how to post your opt-in in Linkedin. Those of you in a B2C (business to consumer) niche may have been thinking that Linkedin was not the best place to put your Opt-in. Pinterest may be perfect for you. There are more ladies on Pinterest but men are taking an interest in Pinterest as well. If you have never been on Pinterest before, browse around and look at what others are posting on Pinterest, before posting anything to Pinterest. Set-up an account, I suggest using your name and / or your blog name. Make a few boards by pinning other people’s pins that are related to your niche. It will look silly if you only post content from your own website to Pinterest.
Pinterest is all about images, so you will want to create an interesting graphic for your opt-in. Canva.com is perfect for this. Canva is a free web based graphics program that has all kind of images and tools for creating awesome graphics. You can select a Pinterest size to start with. This size is 735 x 1102 pixels.
You way want to ask a question that leads to your opt-in to catch people’s attention. Make sure you add a link below your graphic and embed on in the graphic that goes to your landing page.
Below is an excellent article on creating Pinterest Graphics for you.
