I recently saw a post on Website Magazine’s site titled “7 Pinterest Tips for the Holidays” and thought I would share the tips with you here (I’ve seen first hand what Pinterest can do for an online retailer while at Calendars.com):

  1. Get Pinterest ready – include a “Pin This” button on your product pages
  2. Leverage rich pins – allows the Pin for a product, for example, to show up to date pricing
  3. Create holiday boards – the earlier the better and don’t forget about keywords & #hashtags
  4. Launch a contest – have folks build “ultimate wish-lists” by pinning products from your site
  5. Consider advertising – currently being tested by Pinterest but you should sign up to learn more here – Promoting Pins on Pinterest
  6. Cross promote – don’t forget to promote your Pinterest boards via other social channels
  7. Keep an eye on analytics – use this info to adjust your Pinterest efforts

You can read a bit more about each of these tips here -> 7 Pinterest tips for the holidays

Onwards and Upwards.
