Just like every other social media network when it comes to being able to search for people to connect with, Pinterest makes it easy for you to connect. Simply go to Pinterest and use the search bar to search for any keyword or keyword phrases about people, places or things you already know are of interest to your target niche.

Conduct a Search

For instance, if want to connect with virtual assistants, just do a search for virtual assistant, choosing “all pins”. You’ll get a lot of results for that search. You can see amazing pins that other virtual assistants have put up such as pictorial resumes, work samples, quotes and more. Select a few that are relevant and re-pin them, follow them, and even send them to others who may be interested.

See Who’s Following the Competition

Like a particular person or business on Pinterest, follow them, then look at who is following them. You can easily follow all the people who are following your competition. Don’t follow hundreds per day, but do pick out a few standouts and follow them each day. More than likely some of these people will follow you back and now will get updates from your pins.

Use Keywords and Keyword Phrases

You want people to be able to find you when they do a search too. Therefore, be sure that you use keywords in your profile, and use the space provided to give as much information as possible about you and your business. When creating boards, use keywords in the descriptors and titles. These keywords will help your audience find you because you are showing that you know your niche by using the right words.

Share Motivational Images

Pinterest is a great story-telling mechanism. A great way to connect with your niche is to share motivational quotes and images with others in that niche. For instance, if you sell Tupperware, you could do a before and after image of organizing your own kitchen cabinets using Tupperware. Add a nice quote about the benefits of organization and you’ve got a winning combination that may motivate your customers to buy what you’ve just shared.

Share Your Accomplishments

Receive a certificate, diploma, or award? Share a picture of it on Pinterest with your followers. People like feeling as if they’re connected to you and even part of your success. By sharing it on Pinterest you become even more human. People like doing business with people they know, like and trust, and by sharing publically your accomplishments you become even more trustworthy in the eyes of your followers.

Brand Your Pins

It’s important to realize that anyone can take your images from Pinterest and you can lose the link back to your website. Therefore, brand all your pins with your logo and URL. That way, if it’s removed from its context people can still find you and connect with you no matter how it gets shared.

By making yourself an integral part of the Pinterest community surrounding your niche, you will easily find ways to connect with and engage with your niche.

About Me

I've been designing and marketing websites and businesses for over 24 years and prior to this I worked in sales, marketing and big business for almost 18 years... which makes me not only old, but also highly experienced at this marketing and Internet stuff.  I've won lots of awards and helped thousands of people, and this website is a testament to the information I share freely to help others succeed online.

When I'm not designing websites, doing this online marketing stuff or writing. I love nothing more than getting out on a weekend and scuba diving. I'm a qualified rescue diver and love getting wet in the waters around Perth and Rottenest Island. I also cycle, which must be a sight as I'm not the thinnest of people (lol)... and a paddle on a kayak or a swim helps makes most weeks, perfect. At home I have a marine reef tank, which I just love and on top of that I've an awesome dog, called Ziggy.

What Can I Do For You?

What Will It Cost ?

A discussion about your requirements is completely free of charge.

Solutions are tailored to meet your budget and success goals as much as possible, and websites have been delivered costing just a few hundreds dollars a month or for one of payments of a few thousand... it all comes down to our discussions, if you want a website that generates millions of dollars in sales your budget will obviously be bigger, if you're a small business then your goals and costs will be more realistic, at least to start with.
