Finding a Pinterest best practice guide led me to a lot of different “Pinterest for Business” guides. The best one that I found was put out by the company themselves and can be found here.
After getting through the basics of Pinterest (what it is, how it works, etc.) I found a few helpful hints. The first one that I thought about using was adding a Pin It button to the site sponsoring the boards. I hadn’t thought about this, but I think when I edit my Re-Purposing project I will add this to the site so that my Re-Purposing and my Re-Mediating sites are linked.
The rest of the style guide just included a bunch of helpful hints. I’ve created some goals that I think will make my page more popular and will enhance my project.
1. Pin to at least three boards each day (this will remind my followers each day about my boards and help them explore the rest of my page).
2. Add pins from others (so many people pin about internship opportunities and tips, something that I discovered after reading this practice guide).
3. Add thoughtful descriptions (instead of just listing the organization where internships are available, I am writing a bit about what interns can expect to do if they participate in that internship).
To all of my fellow Pinterest pals, happy pinning!
