Pinterest can be an amazing source of traffic for your website and will also give your website content some seriously good social signals.

Setting up your Pinterest business account is really simple, just follow the simple steps in the video.

Remember to spend a little bit of time to optimize your account description with your main business keywords so that you are found on Pinterest Search.

Coming up in the next training videos will be how to verify your website on Pinterest, how to add and use the Pinterest Pin It Button, how to create boards and add pins, as well as how to find and join big Pinterest boards and add collaborators to your boards.

Hi Lynne, thanks for sharing. If you have a few niches on different websites, is it better to create a few pinterest accounts to serve different niches or to just put all in one single account but create different boards for the different niches?

I would advise both and I will be getting to that with the training!

Set up one personal account, then set up a Business account for each website you have.

From your personal account create loads of boards and then you invite your business accounts to be collaborators... which means that those boards show up on your business accounts too!

Your personal account would then have loads of boards in all your niches :)

I will add that training as soon as I can!

This is very useful. It took me ages to figure Pinterest out once. Next I would like to create a Twitter one. But one step at a time ay.

No problem at all :) Enjoy!

I need to get to Instagram too haha. But I am still playing away with Instagram. I have not had much success in the way of traffic yet. I have a lot of followers but not much traffic or engagement.

When I figure it out and master it I will share about it.

That's cool. I've not figured out traffic from it yet. But will keep working at it. Its once thing to get a click now and again but long term regular clicks seem so far away.

Don't worry, I will show you how to do it. It will take a little bit of work initially to get it going but once you have your technique figured out you just have to share your new content as you publish it.

It is a pleasure. I have had an account on Pinterest for I think 4 or 5 years but only recently spent time figuring out how it all works! And knowing a few tricks certainly helps a lot when it comes to getting Pinterest traffic.
