Quick Guide to Shift Pinterest on AutoPilot and Observe Analytics Rising!
In today’s high-tech era, the Internet offers lots of automations for promoting any type of business. It can be used to respond to e-mails without even pressing a single button. It facilitates its users to sign up for auto follow software that grows on one’s twitter account while he/she sleeps. Briefly, automation is all over the place around us and in some cases it is a great thing, while in other cases, it is a terrible thing and it can waver on the edge of spam.
The key purpose of using different types of suitable automations in marketing is to quickly find and weed out the possible clients, customers and fans who might be interested in one’s business/products. Using automations in daily business operations also saves energy and loads of time.
But the question is how one can set up an automated system for something like Pinterest, and is Pinterest not purely against automation?
The answer is YES!
Pinterest is strictly against the use of automation, and has yet to be spoiled by spammers and marketers looking for an easy way out. In fact, this is just what makes it so great. However, that does not mean one cannot take advantage of an ethical automation that actually capitalizes and utilizes Pinterest for the very reason it was created, and i.e. SHARING!
So, if you want to turn Pinterest on AutoPilot and watch your Analytics rise rapidly then all you have to is just follow these quick tips below:
First of all, to create an automated traffic generation and lead building system using something like Pinterest, what you have to do is to create some content. You may be thinking that creating content is not automated at all, and let me tell you that you are correct! Your hands might catch some dirt while creating some content, literally, but, in my opinion, investing a short amount of time upfront will have huge pay offs in the end when you are gaining traffic and leads 24 hours a day because of the automated system.
Therefore, without wasting any more time, start creating some content that is likely to be pinned. This could be a piece of art or a poster with an inspirational saying. Create it like a pro or a con, does not matter at all, just remember one thing, don’t be overly promotional and remember your Pinterest audience!
Now, place this content on your website or blog, and then copy the URL of the page holding your content and upload that URL to Pinterest as this will ‘pin’ your content to a pin board right away, and this is how the first phase of using an automated system will be completed. When visitors click through your ‘pin’ they will be directed to your website.
Within a few hours you may already witness a spike in traffic from this single pin, and if your content is really amazing, you may see an increase in back-links.
Produce Pin Boards
The second step in building your automated promotion system using Pinterest is to build a set of pin boards that completely belongs to you. This may take some extra time, but it is well worth it since the more content that you are pinning and sharing the more people will pin and share your stuff.
There is a direct relationship between the amount of interaction you receive on your own pin board and the time spent pinning other peoples content.
While creating your own set of pin boards, do not forget to get out there and pin other peoples work, because if you can find original work to pin you will surely get good traffic. It is less effective when you start pinning stuff that has already been pinned a thousand times.
This is where you will see the automation process at play. You may have spent quite a few hours working on your Pinterest campaign, but doing a quick image search on Google, you will find that your content has reached far and wide across the internet. You will see an increase in traffic and this will only continue. Some content gets repined months after it was first posted.
Be sure to track everything on your analytics, and repeat this cycle a few times and you will find that automation become exponential.
