Share the Pinterest love - let's repin each other!

Pinterest is a great way to promote your art - if you know what you are doing… :-)
I’m a big fan as more than 80% of the traffic to my Artist Website (and a large part of my sales) comes from there so I’m more than happy that Tatiana invited me to do a Pinterest share discussion in her wonderful Travel Art group, thanks Tatiana!

Please post both, a link to your Pinterest account and a link to a pin on Pinterest that you want us to repin. I will do the first post so you can see what I’m talking about.

Then go to the last 2 posts above you, and either click on the provided link of the pin and save (repin) it into to one of your boards or choose another pin from their account.

Why do we want to have a choice? Because Pinterest wants us to be good curators, means we should mainly pin stuff that fits in our niche. Their algorithm rewards this. If you are mainly into flowers you may not pin cars or planes :-) If you have a more broad range of topics this is fine, so you will have more choice.

If you like one or both of the accounts (above your post) feel free to follow their account or one or more of their boards.

Oh, one more thing… ;-) I created a complete online course about Pinterest. The first lessons are available for free, check them out if you want! The name of the course is “How to sell more art with Pinterest”, just click here to take a look: https://pinterest-marketing-for-artists.thinkific.com/courses/sell-more-art-with-pinterest

If you have any questions regarding the course please send me a private message via FAA, in this discussion we will just share our pins--and some Pinterest love :-)

Hi Matthias,

My pinterest account is https://www.pinterest.com/YuryTom/other-artists/

I did repin your pin https://www.pinterest.com/pin/426786502174820702/ to newly created board on my account "Other Artists".

Please repin (save) this pin https://www.pinterest.com/pin/505177283183339494/ from my Board "Color Photos by YuryTom For Sale".

It is great news for me that you got 80% traffic from Pinterest. I did not thought that is possible. Have to read your online course :-)

Thanks for the link to the Pinterest course. I really don't understand much about Pinterest.

@Karen - I pinned your work

@Matthias - Should we reply that we pinned as requested or is it assumed by default?

Hi, My pinterest page is this: https://www.pinterest.com/travelways/

Please repin this one: https://www.pinterest.com/pin/463870830354965003/

I also created a FAA board, but I'm not sure if I did it correctly either - I think I'll move those pins in my other boards, eventually.

I haven't organize those boards for a while, but it looks like the time is coming :)

Saved Matthias in the newly created board: Waterfalls

Saved Yury in the newly created board: Nature

Saved Karen in the newly created board: Travel art

Saved Marina's pin https://www.pinterest.de/pin/559290847465239753/ into Travel photography board

Saved AnneMarie pin https://www.pinterest.com/pin/57983913928715286/ to Caribbean Life board

Good morning from Germany! Wow, I'm really happy to see so many of you are already participating, thank you! :-)

I pinned / repinned each and every one above.

I hope it's okay if I use this thread to give some suggestions how some of you could do better on Pinterest. Fine? Okay let's go:

Descriptions! Guys and gals, this is important! Some of you don't have a description on your pins. How do you want to be found? Pinterest is one of the biggest search engines on this planet. Board and profile descriptions are important too. Even your business name is. You want to be found in Pinterest search, this in one of the basics.

In one of the free lessons of my course I show you step by step how to use Pinterest Guided Search to come up with great descriptions. Speaking of the course: Listen, you don't have to buy it, I totally get it that it's not for everybody and this discussion is no promo thread but you might at least check out the free lessons, there is really valuable content that will help you lay the foundation. Just one example: please be sure to use a business account, not a personal one! Why this is important and how to convert a personal account is described in Chapter 2, Lesson 1 (free lesson, you just have to register for the course platform).

Great, let's move on with sharing the Pinterest love :-)

Please either repin this pin to one of your Pinterest boards: https://www.pinterest.com/pin/426786502174612119/
OR choose another one of my pins on my account: https://www.pinterest.com/hauserfoto (and pin it to one of your boards).

P.S. No need for me to state into which boards you have pinned, I completely trust all of you in this. And we all will see it in our Pinterest notifications anyway :-)

Thank you Matthias for this thread. I was inspired by your ad in Twitter :)

I wanted to do this for long time but I haven't participated in Pinterest for a while, and I was not sure anymore about how to handle it...

In the past I have studied almost every information they gave us, and I also had some other guides. Now, I will download your free teachings as well, at least to start (or restart) with ;)

As I said I haven't participated in Pinterest for about 1 year maybe... but I keep receiving e-mails with my pictures being saved by others - this gives me quite a bit of traffic, even though I don't so anything :) Is this not nice? Yes I love Pinterest! Ha, ha...

I see that they have made some changes though... no more likes, no more comments. The likes were very convenient, but maybe not that effective.

You are mentioning about the description of the site and I'd like to ad that also the descriptions of the boards and pictures themselves are important.

One thing I was neglecting in the beginning where these boards - it is important that after you create one, to go to edit it and fill the fields they are asking: The description - a good and to the point one is essential, but also you have to choose from their list the category which the board belongs to (is it travel, art, home decor, etc)

Yes, this is one of the really amazing things regarding Pinterest. The half-life of a Pinterest Pin (the time in which it earns half of the overall engagement, like clicks and view) is 3.5 months - about 1,600 times longer than a Facebook post!

Venetia: your pins don't have descriptions, this means nobody will find them in search! Feel free to read my post above :-)

Pinned Tatiana and Venetia, here is mine:

Please either repin this pin to one of your Pinterest boards: https://www.pinterest.com/pin/349310514838976188/
OR choose another one of my pins on my account: https://www.pinterest.com/hauserfoto (and pin it to one of your boards).

Hey guys,

I just started to pin your (current) featured images in specially created board: https://www.pinterest.com/travelways/my-travel-art-group-on-fine-art-america/

With my slow connection here, at this time, this will take me forever... Maybe there is a way to do this yourself...?

If you are interested of having your featured pictures there, you will need to follow this board and I'll have to invite you.

So please let me know, and give me your pinterest URL.

I'm still not getting all the emails and since I don't have discussions bookmarked I depend on seeing an email to know if anything is happening. The last few days have been a bit better with emails, but I'm still not getting about 20% of them (estimating)
