Make Your Pinterest Business Account Ready for Spring

 

Spring is the perfect time to clean out our homes so why not our social media accounts as well.  Today I’m solely focusing on Pinterest as it is my number one social referrer everyday. As with all things in social media everything is in constant flux.  Normally, when we declutter we want to get rid of things but that is not the case with Pinterest.  Pins from 3 to 4 years ago are still bringing in traffic to my site even though those pins are less than ideal.

Today I will tackle some housekeeping or updating items for Pinterest and also tell you about a sale in the Pinning Perfect Ecourse from Blog Clarity.  I am an affiliate for this course but it is the only course I have every needed to stay on top of Pinterest and making it my number one referrer to my blog.  The price will be going up later this year so if you are interested there is a $25 discount available only on March 15th and 16th (Code only works on Thursday and Friday).  So let’s make our Pinterest account spring ready!

VISME: A NEW CONTENT CREATOR FOR NON-DESIGNERS & TEAMS

*Disclosure: I was provided access to all of Visme features in their premium plan in order to facilitate this review.*

In the fast paced online world of content creation it is best to have as many tools at your disposable as possible.  What attracted me to the Visme app when they approached me was their claim that even non-designers would be able to easily use their apps and become a better visual creator and storyteller.  I don’t have oodles of time to spend learning how to do a lot of the fancy stuff but I do need to learn enough to help me create visual content.  The Visme app can help teachers, or presenters create more engaging content to share.  It can help content marketers with ad creations that make more of an impact and it can help a sole blogger like myself learn how to make more engaging content on different social media platforms.  I will show you how I have used the new Visme app.  (more…)
