STEP 1: Invitation Request
Pinterest is currently a closed social platform so if you want to participate you’ll need an invitation. Don’t worry it’s easy to get one! There are two ways to start a Pinterest account for your business: 1) Request an invitation directly from Pinterest OR 2) Get invited by a friend who already has an account.
Requests sent directly Pinterest can take as long as several weeks before you get an invitation. Once you’ve requested the invitation you’ll be placed on the Pinterest waiting list. This can be extremely frustrating if you’re excited to get started. While it might not happen immediately you will eventually receive your invitation.
If you’re lucky enough to know someone who already has a Pinterest account you can get your account started almost immediately. Simply ask your friend for an invitation and you will receive an email invite to join Pinterest immediately. Guess what!?! I have a Pinterest account and would be thrilled to help you out! Simply click here to get your Pinterest invitation right away.
Content marketing drives traffic and as a result is extremely important. Through the use of optimized and targeted content one can attract a specific audience and give that audience a reason to remain on a particular website or blog for an extended period of time. If your audience is inspired by the content you've created they will leave comments or even share the content with their networks. This type of action drives even more traffic to your site, further increasing your chances of making online sales.
