Sharpen Your Pinterest Tools - Good Products + Advocates = Social Media Power

Sharpen Your Pinterest Tools - Good Products + Advocates = Social Media Power | Inspiring Social Media | Scoop.it
The problem that arose wasn’t the sofa table, but what hung above it. This particular DIY article set the wheels in motion for what truly illustrates the power of social media for business.

 

I was first made aware of this story by the folks at Avalaunch Media, a firm that knows quite a bit about social media marketing. Speaking at the SES Conference in San Francisco, the session topic was Pinterest as an effective marketing tool. True to subject matter, these guys told the story spot on.

 

Lindsay’s picture was pinned to Pinterest, and then re-pinned over and over.

janlgordon's curator insight, April 28, 6:24 PM

I selected this article from Curatti written by Jenn Herman because it provides insights into how to better grow your Instagram community with the right followers.

 

It's important to attract the right followers for your target market to authentically grow your reach on Instagram.

 

How to Have a Quality Following on Instagram

 

It's tempting to look more at the number of followers rather than how they are actually benefitting your brand. I agree that you can improve your mobile strategy by attracting the right people.

 

Herman explains how to best grow your profile with the right connections.

 

Here's what caught my attention:

 

  • Use specific hashtags for events and conferences in your niche. Go through these posts and 'like' them throughout the day.

 

  • Check out the competition and influencers to see who they are following. If the accounts relate to your business then follow these and engage on their posts.

 

  • Ask your community to tag their friends in your posts. Don't do this all of the time, but rather mix it into your mobile marketing strategy.

donhornsby's curator insight, April 19, 9:30 AM
Fewer people seeing your Page's organic posts on Facebook means fewer clicks, comments, and shares. And having fewer of those interactions means fewer conversions, leads, and customers. Understandably, this has annoyed the crap out of many a Facebook Page manager. So why would Facebook decide to decrease organic post visibility in the first place?
