Pinterest: Driving Traffic to my Online Work

PinterestPinterest is one of the ways that I am working to drive traffic to my on-line work.  Because of this, as I added the following Valentine’s Day projects to my resume, I also added them to my Pinterst Board, Activities and Crafts.  This means that you can find each activity on Education.com but you can also find a link to it on my Activities and Crafts Board.

The fact of the matter is that while I started this board to drive traffic to my own work, I love activities and crafts.  This means that I also pin other people’s activities and crafts on my board.  I don’t publish new crafts every week but this allows me to constantly add new content.  Furthermore, it rounds the board out and makes it into something more than a giant “yay, me.”

When people see my pins and like them, they can pin them onto their own boards.  I always link my images so that clicking on the image takes you to the original activity.  If you don’t do this, it simply takes you to the image itself.

When other people repin my images, I get a notice that they have done so – a nice pat on the back.

When I pin new content, like the activities above, I also get a notice if someone else has pinned the same image.  Bth the Candy Heart activity and the Ombre Art project had been pinned by someone else.  Talk about a great feeling.

Are you using Pinterest to publicize your work?
