Pinterest How To How do I get started the right way with Pinterest?

Pinterest123 Plan Prep Serve PDF Course

The biggest mistakes I see when business owners (including me when I first started!) is not creating a plan, setting goals and deciding how they want to present their business to the folks hanging around in the world of social media.

I think of Pinterest more like a party. And if you’re going to invite someone to your party, you want them

  • to know what you’re doing
  • why they’ll love what you’re serving
  • and why to join your party instead of someone else’s

I don’t know about you and when I have guests over I do a lot of thinking about

  • what we’ll eat (yeah, grew up with that one, big time)
  • what the theme
  • what we’ll do
  • and a whole lot of other things to make sure the guests have a good time and want to come back

And that’s why I created the Pinterest 123: Plan | Prep | Serve Quickstart Course!

I kept seeing empty profiles and boards. No pins. No nuttin’.

So why would I want to join that party, eh? Nothing for me to see, so I move on. And that’s NOT what you want if you’re doing business, eh? And believe me, unless you’re inviting your dear friends and family, folks aren’t going to come back to see if you’ve got some good stuff for them!

You’ll love this course because it gets your Pinterest Party started the RIGHT way…by planning it out first, then starting that party with a bang instead of a whimper!

Step 1: Plan

In this step, you’ll get really clear on what you want to do at your Pinterest Party (and the kewl thing is that when you answer the questions, honestly and as clearly as you can at the moment), you’ll have a plan that helps you with all of your business, not just Pinterest. You’re guided step-by-step through the questions that will make your Pinterest Party THE one to join!

Step 2: Prep

In this step, you’ll use the 5 NoodleSheets™ to gather the information you’ll need when you open (or review) that Pinterest account. With this Microsoft Word forms, you’ll be able to test out everything before anyone else sees what you’re doing

  • Get all the information to have a complete profile (picture, website, description, the whole schebang)
  • Gather information on what other Pinners like you are doing so you have some ideas of what boards to create, what pins to pin, who to follow
  • Choose board names with the keywords that attract those who are looking for what you offer
  • Figure out what you want to pin and on what board
  • Figure out who you want to join in your party

Step 3: Serve

With all this information at the ready, you’ll create your Pinterest Party in 30 minutes (or less!) and have a complete profile filled with at least 10 recipes (boards) and 100 ingredients (pins) without having to create a single pin yourself!

And when you set up Pinterest this way, you’re way ahead of the game!

Why plan first?

Because the 3 biggest mistakes business owners make are

  • Not letting guests know what they’re all about (no image, no description, no links to other places)
  • No recipes (boards), just an empty ole’ thing hanging out by itself
  • No ingredients (pins), just a blank spot where good stuff could go

  • Oh I love Pinterest! I signed up long ago when it first started and didn’t understand the value. Now it’s one of the main ways people find my website. I wouldn’t go back to blogging before Pinterest–no way. It makes marketing so much easier. I believe your 123 Plan will be a great service to many businesses.

      That’s so kewl to hear Debi and I’ve heard that from many folks. And whether people make money directly from it or because of the traffic to their own sites depends on the business you’re in, doesn’t it? It took me a while to discipline myself to have at least 1 image in every post (especially since my business isn’t necessarily visual from the get go). Have fun!

  • Carlana says:

    Looks very interesting. I’m a bit overwhelmed with all the social media tools out there at this time but I do see potential in Pinterest and doing it right from the go.

    • MamaRed says:

      I totally hear ya Carlana…and the reason I built Pinterest 123: Plan | Prep | Serve the way I did was to help you not only create a plan for Pinterest, but for your business so you know whether it is even for you! Not all social media tools need to be learned, eh?

  • Thanks for the reminder about planning.
    Can you have a success without planning? Well, yes you can, but it will take longer and will happen more by chance.
    A plan reduces the luck factor and can reduce the timescale involved too.

    Thanks for the share,

    • MamaRed says:

      Hey there Gordon…yup, I definitely know about the “longer” and “more by chance” components, which is, actually why I’m so sharing the “plan first” model! Thanks for the stopover and loved your post on Mozart and Status Quo.
