Share The Pinterest Love: Repin Thread!

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 wanted to start a Pinterest sharing thread in the main FAA forum (there are already some of them in several groups).

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 3 posts* above you (if you want to do more this is fine), 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. Please do not post links to FAA or Pixels, post links to one of your pins. This is faster and easier for all of us.

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

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

If you don't like to share from other artists (or if you don't like Pinterest) this is perfectly okay. Please just stay away from this discussion, thank you! This is a place for those who want to share.

Edit: *Please* check your pins if they have a description! Pinterest is one of the most important search engines (yes, really!) and you want to have a great description to be found! If you use the FAA / Pixels button to pin your pics you have to manually add them. You can download a PDF for free here:
https://hauser.lpages.co/why-your-pinterest-pin-descriptions-are-soooo-important-and-what-to-do-when-they-are-missing/

********** Short Version: for those who don't want to read long texts... **********

1. Post a link to one of your pins and a link to your Pinterest account (if your pin does not fit the niche of the person that repins)
2. Go to the last THREE Pinterest links above you and repin them. Repin even more if you like :-)

One last thing before I leave for today (it's already evening in Germany): Please check that every pin you post here do have a proper description! Your work will NOT be found on Pinterest if you don't have descriptions! This is one of the main failures people make on Pinterest.

Here is a free PDF that explains why they are so important and what to do if your pins don't have one:

Matt,

Read your article and thanks, but a quick question. Why not just copy and paste YOUR existing description from FAA/AW, since you're there already on the page that has the description?

I think I got it fun and, It never ceases to amaze me the quality of art on FAA

It's better if you can have a board - more choices. Some art I can't pin, sorry - so I doubled up on those that have whole boards to choose from.

Matthias Thank You again for the reminder about descriptions on Pinterest. I have many to catch up on!
I try to pin from my Artist Website rather than my FAA pages in the hope of keeping any potential customers looking at my work!

Just checked on Google Analytics and if I'm interpreting right most of my social media visits do come via Pinterest

Pinned all above :)

Rich: yes, you can totally do that! I always suggest to use the Pinterest Browser button to pin your images, this way a description is added automatically. Sometimes it makes sense to change the default description. In one of the free lessons of my course I explain in detail how to use Guided Search to come up with great keywords.

Mo: Yes, I do the same (pinning from my AW). More than 80% of my traffic comes from Pinterest, then Facebook, Google+ and Twitter. Next to nothing from Instagram...

Repinned RD, Steve and Steven.

Matt,

Thanks! As far as Keywords, can they just BE keywords or do they always need to be included in a sentence? I could just as easily dump the FAA keywords, if they don't have to be written in a sentence.....

Hi Rich, I would strongly suggest to write full sentences and include some great keywords. Looks less spammy.
