Are you using all the social media tools available to you to grow your business? Well, here's one I missed. I just finished reading Pinterest Savvy. It's short and sweet, but it packs a real punch in terms of ideas, tips and examples for how to use Pinterest more effectively to drive traffic to your website. If you are looking for ways to boost your Pinterest account, this is the book for you. If you are new to Pinterest, this is the book for you. You can buy the Kindle version on Amazon for less than $5.
Now. The down-side. Not to the book, but because we're Etsymoms and our businesses are on Etsy: Pinterest and Etsy have not yet worked out a way to verify our shop links so that the link to our shops can be on our profile on Pinterest. This is explained in the book - so read it! We can do something about that. We need to politely send a message to Etsy, asking them to please find a way to help us verify our shop links on Pinterest. Or, if you're super tech savvy, maybe you can think of a way to make it work and suggest it to them. You will see that there is a tiny little Etsy discussion thread on subject of verifying etsy address. We aren't the only ones wondering about this.
If you decide to read the book, here's one more thing you should know. The author is hosting a giveaway. If you read and review the book and do a couple other things, you can be entered to win a Kindle Fire. Drop by Imagination Soup to learn more about it.
