Why You Need To Be On Pinterest If You’re A Blogger
If you are a blogger, chances are you are already on Pinterest because they typically go hand in hand, right? Believe it or not, I have met bloggers that don’t! If you have a blog, you are probably already putting a lot of time into your SEO, so why not then share that content to another platform. Adding your content to other platforms will benefit you in many ways. Let’s get started!
If you aren’t already on Pinterest for your blog I am going to share with you 5 reasons you should make it a priority now!
Ok, the first thing I want to mention is how important SEO is for bloggers. We all know that SEO ranking is crucial, especially for bloggers. As a blogger, typically you are posting content that is trending among your ideal subscriber. There are a couple of great WordPress plugins that integrate with Pinterest. If you’re on WordPress, I would recommend Tasty Pin, which is A-MAZING for food bloggers. Using Tasty Pin allows your ingredients to be displayed in your pin description. Social Pug/Grow is great for any blogger and allows you to add images that are only viewable on the backend.
You’re already creating the content so why not pin it to Pinterest. I would suggest creating a variety of fresh images per blog post. This can be as simple as switching out text, colors and images.
The third and most obvious is that you are going to get your content in front of more people. If you brand it so that your content is recognizable, you will be able to get it in front of more people. A great way tool to utilize is Tailwind. Tailwind will help you to consistently pin your content at the proper times that your audience is online. This platform also has the option of using Tailwind tribes. Tribes can help to give your blog content an extra boost form people that are sharing similar content.
Affiliate links. When it comes to blogging these are super important and Pinterest keeps that in mind. When you manually upload a blog post you are able to tag the image and include additional links.
The last thing I want to touch on is your email list. Getting subscribers is a huge aspect of blogging so its important to find ways to do that. I love that Pinterest gives the opportunity for business owners and bloggers to also create content that will help you build an email list. A great way to do this is to create opt-ins or freebies. Let your readers know that you are willing to give them content that is beneficial.
So next time you are wondering why you need to be on Pinterest if you’re a blogger I hope you’ll find this blog post helpful!
