In this video I share my #1 tip for getting lots of traffic from Pinterest to your website. I call my technique a 20/20 audit – and it is designed to do one thing really well – ensure your site is “Pinterest Friendly”.
Tell me what you think by leaving a comment!
I’ve also made a small booklet out of the transcript and added it as a PDF, in case you want to download it and print it out, or share it around.
Yesterday Pinterest revealed it’s latest break-through – Pinterest Messaging! I’ve been experimenting with the functionality (both on my Iphone and my desktop). It’s pretty cool!
Now you can send a specific pin to people with a message included – and they can reply back. Sure – they probably should have had this functionality three years ago (but let’s be nice!) This conversation tool could really change Pinterest. As most of us know – it’s not a place for a lot of chit-chat. Maybe that will start to change as people become more comfortable with this functionality.
The Pinterest team did a video of how the mobile version works – check it out:
Hey, quick update – Amazon is featuring my bestselling book Pinterest Power for just $1.99 in the ebook format today. I believe it’s just a 1-day sales, so if you’re interested – act fast.
I was just doing some quick math – If there are 15 tips per chapter (that’s sort of a guess on my part) and there are 19 chapters – then that’s something like …
285 Pinterest marketing tips – for just $1.99!
That’s just .70 cents a tip! What a bargain!
I’m sure lots of you have already gotten the book, so you can ignore this, but tons more haven’t. So now is a great opportunity!
I hope you snag a copy today!

What have you learned about what works and what doesn’t work?
Are there any kinds of brands that do well on Pinterest versus others?
Right now the promoted pins are visible when I search, will I ever see a promoted Pin right when I log onto Pinterest?
Why should I pay for a promoted pin on Pinterest instead of a sponsored story on Facebook or a promoted tweet on Twitter?
What’s it like working with Ben Silbermann?
She also explains what the current brands running promoted pins are learning. Those brands include:
The most exciting thing in the interview as Joanne’s discussion of how Pinterest plans to roll out advertising products to serve the smaller brands at a pricepoint that will work for them. That’s exciting!
I hope you enjoy the interview!
In this insightful video Pintererest Founder Ben Silbermann discusses the “unsolved problems” on the Internet, including the “problem of online discovery”.
