    Hello All,

    I've only been using Pinterest for a short time and have basically been pinning posts from the JVFocus blog.

    How are you using Pinterest with regards to online marketing and what strategies if any, are working for you?

    Would love to hear your thoughts.

    Cheers,

    Mike

    I usually just pin every image I put on a post. I do get some traffic doing that, making sure each pin goes to the category I'm writing about.

    I too am very limited in my use of Pinterest, and feel that there is much more I could be doing. But it comes down to time for me.

    I don't use it much, but plan to change that. One thing I have noticed from browsing and learning, is that keyword research is important - Pinterest URLs show up in Google searches quite a lot - specially for books.

    Thanks for the input Dave. I noticed the same thing, but I am looking for effective strategies for optimizing it more as well. ;)

    Hi Mike .....again :)

    I have actually been using Pinterest since it started. I do a direct selling approach, that's pinning images for products with links to the sales page. I had a great success with marketing CPA using Pinterest while some of my friends are saying that they could never sell anything on it!

    Go figure :)

    Hello again, Ahmed.

    That's an interesting approach and I'll certainly look into that one.
    :)
