How to use Pinterest and Get Traffic to your Blog

Deconstructing the Process

Let’s say you are a creative entrepreneurial mom interested in raising a child in a gender neutral environment. Our task is to generate traffic to a blog page on the website that cleverly shows anyone to create the “look.” This is a simple and easy guide that makes for good SEO and organic on page link building. Importantly it’s got a lot of really nice eye candy. Even the color samples above are lovely to look at, right? Great storytelling today calls for a slightly different approach: tell it, share it … and build on it. We’ll show you exactly what we mean.

Research

Start with some research on Pinterest using the keywords on anything you are interested in, in this example we’ll use Gender Neutral Nurseries“. I’m drawn to the one I circled in red.

The Power of Before & After

East Coast Creative has a great before and after picture of the room, and a great mock up of the style she went for with the different products she used. Each of these could be affiliate links. The page is big, bold and easy to follow. It’s important to deliver satisfaction, after all a person has clicked three times to get to your page. You’ve enticed them and everyone wants a payoff right? Take a look at the entire page here >>>
