Pinterest Marketing For Virtual Assistants Part II


I had such a great response to last week's blog post about how to market your virtual assistant business using the social network Pinterest.   I've decided to do a follow up post.  In this video you will learn why it's important not only to pin original content by why you must include original images with a strong call to action.

Once again, if you really want to leverage the power of Pinterest to get prospects back to your site, than I highly recommend you go and check out Melanie Duncan, the creator of  The Power of Pinning.  Melanie taught me everything I know about Pinterest and trust me when I tell you, she knows what she is doing.

So let's get started.

How do you create visually pleasing images of your own?  The good news is it's not that hard to do!   Anything from an image of text on a colorful background works.  In fact, the simpler your image, the better!

A really great idea of pins would be to post your blog posts as I mentioned in last week's tutorial.   In addition create some tutorials like the one below and pin the tutorials to your board.   Once you've done that create a teaser pins to intrigue people and get them to click through.  A teaser pin is just some text on top of  a image or colorful background that states what you will learn if you click here.   I show you a great example of this in the video below so make sure to watch the video all the way through and don't forget to leave a comment with your results!


Pinterest Marketing for Virtual Assistants


Did you know that you can use Pinterest to marketing your virtual assistant business?

Peg Fitzpatrick knows a lot about social media and Pinterest in general. Chek out her 12 Strategic Ways to Use Pinterest for Marketing post.  Then read below and watch my super short training video to show you how to pull this all together.

In the video below I am going to show you how easy it is to leverage Pinterest to generate traffic back to your website.   You don't want to miss out on the traffic you can get from Pinterest.   Research shows that Pinterest is the 3rd most popular social media network in terms of US traffic.   More than that over 80% of all pins on Pinterest are re-pins.  What does this mean?  It means that if you are pinning unique content onto Pinterest you have a virtual army of people waiting to re-pin your content and get traffic back to your website.


In addition to marketing your business, you can also suggest to your clients that they too should maximize Pinterest as a way to get more exposure to their business.   If you convince them that they need to pin their blog posts to Pinterest then you've just increased your billable hours!  Cha-ching!

Let me know what you think of the video below by posting a comment.   Have some great results?  I want to know about that as well.   Leave me a comment below detailing your exact results from this training video or email me directly.   I may just highlight you and your business.
