This is…the country girl and her blog and her adventures of blogging !!
Today, I am going to go over “How to be a WINNER on Pinterest by knocking it out of the park”. There are some business pinners that fail to see how important their Pinterest profile is to their business. Pinterest has become a splendid tool to market your business, blog and your brand, allowing others to visit your website. Which is what we want right?

Look at how well Anna Runyan, of Classy Career Girl, has grown her business to her 25,838 followers. This woman is career driven, has assisted so many women in finding their career Niche and improved lives as well.
So in your Pinterest profile, the image of YOU should be crisp and clear. When it is uploaded to your profile it will be a cute little circle so the most selected size is 165px X 165px.
When choosing your image remember, it should be the same image that you use on all your social media sites. If people see you on Instagram or Twitter, you need to be recognized by the image on Pinterest as well. Keeping this consistent is the key!
Provide keywords in your profile, along with your bio, that is related to your niche. On mine I have;

A call to action link is awesome to have at the end of your bio, that could be a FREE printable, or lead to cornerstone content post.
To get your Ideal Client to visit your website will be all you need to business growth.
When designing your perfect pin, by using a vertical image this enables your viewer to notice YOUR pin and they also take up more space on a Pinterest feed. The size of 735px X 1102px is a good dimension, but I prefer to go even bigger than 1102px.
Just look at it once it’s done, to make sure it is not too long that a viewer will have to keep scrolling to see all the info and to “repin” your awesome content. You do not want to turn them away.
Create your pin with text overlay, without it, is just plain boring. This way your viewers can clearly see what the awesome content is once they click on it. Your text should include
- What your pin is about
- An eye-catching title
- And your URL of your website-I prefer at the bottom
Your URL does not have to be really big, you do not want it to take away from your title just so that photo identifies who designed it.
If you ever have a hard time discovering your keyword, go to the top of Pinterest where you see the search bar, enter your Pinterest topic. For example, for one of my pin’s discusses my “niche”, so I made sure the word niche was in my title and the description below.
This enables anyone ever having a problem finding their niche for their business, hopefully, my pin will pop up along with all the other ones on that topic.
Remember everyone is trying to do the same as you, so using keywords is a must.
There are important points to cover when adding your pin to Pinterest. I have had trouble with this myself when my URL for my post does not direct my viewers back to my website to read a post.
Of course, I had to get on the phone with WordPress and finally got it taken care of. Just make sure after you apply your pin, test it out to make sure it is working properly.
I have clicked on a pin before and was not able to go to the source, but I leave a comment letting the pinner know so they can look into it. Maybe they were not aware of the problem, I am trying to help them out.
Once again, make sure your content is pertinent, you have most likely heard this before. This is how you will attract your Ideal Client and receive repins.
Like I mentioned above, the image should be, vertical in shape, readable text.
Were you aware that you can, and should, have two pins for each blog post, or more? I know that it will take some time to create two images for each post, it is hard for me to decide on just one image out of all those that are available.
This way you are able to distinguish how well those different images measure up to one another.
I have made two images for some of my pins, then when I have time, I add a couple here and there having two or three for each blog post. Just another way of getting your content out there.
How do you add
more value to your clients?
Surprise and delight them
