Pinterest Tips for Teacherpreneurs
- Make sure you have a Pinterest business account.
- Fill out your entire profile. This means you want each board to have a detailed, keyword-rich description. You’ll also want your profile to have lots of great information – such as what grade levels people can find, any specialties your blog may have (math, classroom management, etc), and even a link to your newsletter sign up.
- Get rid of unrelated boards. There’s no reason to have a board about home decor for teachers. Make that board secret! It’s ok to keep a food board because everyone needs to eat, but change those others ones to secret. (Don’t delete them entirely or you’ll lose those followers! #lessonlearnedthehardway)
- Enable rich pins.
- Consider adding a Pinterest pop up to your blog. There are many different options out there. The one I currently use is free. It’s called MiloTree.
- Make sure you are using high quality photos. You can buy stock photos directly from Teachers Pay Teachers, get photos from stock sites like Deposit Photos or Stock Unlimited, or even invest in a good DSLR camera. Your photos definitely need to be vertical to do the best on Pinterest.
- Schedule your pins. While this point is not a must, it’s definitely a time saver. I used to sit down 2-3 times a day to live pin. #timesucker Now I simply use BoardBooster to have various evergreen/freebie pins go out on a daily basis, and then I also use Tailwind to schedule out posts from others, my own seasonal posts, and my product pins to various collaborative boards. Both BoardBooster and Tailwind have free options to start out, but you’ll have to pay to use them regularly. I realize it can be hard to justify spending extra money, but I found it to be very worthwhile. As the chart below shows – when I started upping my Pinterest game in January 2016, my sales also went up. Paying a little bit each month for these pinning programs has been very worthwhile for me!
