generates totally free web

an increase in your

that! (I always reffered to stuff like this as "a no-brainer").

additional web traffic using Pinterest".
It works. Do this "now"
the result will be - more discovery and more sales for less cost!
NEW things are added
Here below are ways to
accelerate the growth of followers whilst maintaining cross traffic
It's now becoming expected for all "visual important" websites to have Pinterest
integration - so here is how this works.
All the images here "when pinned" carry
inbuilt links directly back to this page. This achieves web traffic
which as a result
increases daily. The 1st one you can see is called a "rich pin" and
carries live the number of times it has been repinned. You can see
the number of times it has been re-pinned. From those the escalating
re-pins could be a LOT! - if each new destination pin board attracts
the same, in a short time it will have reached millions of views /
(new business) opportunities at a minuscule cost! - I am now getting
many questions about "drop-shipping" and have recently started
another study (based on information you can see here) - it is
written by Damien Defranco - "THE - world expert on this subject" +
recently added more.
Dropshipping / I am now recommending this.
Our decisions are
influenced by how things look - we all know that visual images are
important regarding a high percentage of everyone's
desires, interests and purchases.
today more than 70% of females between 25 and 55 now use
"daily" for both enjoyment and decision
making / purchasing.
Pinterest is now THE
leading platform for image recognition, image comparison AND image
sharing. (the Google of images with links built in). Many

remains dominant in text search.
Pinterest is quite different from
Before I say any more about how to use Pinterest for business, here’s quick overview
of some key Pinterest terminology. It's simple so I had to "spice"
it up a bit.
What are Pins?
A Pin is any image or
many with embedded links that someone "a pinner" chooses to
save to their own Pinterest boards. For businesses, more important
than the pin itself (if anything
could be) is the website link it can and does
"very often" carry. If an image is pinned
from your own website it carries a link back from where it came
Pins get repinned by others looking for similar ideas and visits to
your website go up "exponentially" (at NO cost to
yourself). If visitors stay a while and pin more of your
images - (guess what ?) the result is more web traffic
and potentially more
Every pin with an embedded link points back to the
website it was pinned from. (the Pinterest software protects
this from cheats)
More than 160 billion (that's a hundred
and sixty thousand million) Pins to
date indicate that something is changing, not to mention there is
In order to keep things organized, Pinners
sort their own Pins into collections called boards.
Your own boards can
be liked and followed just as you yourself can "like" and "follow"
any boards of other pinners,
AND maybe most importantly, you can make comments,
and include keywords + # (hash tags).
Pinterest is text searchable just like Google..
For many businesses
an active Pinterest account is now
becoming a "must have".
It can drive web traffic at costs
miniscule by comparison with other strategies. It is becoming
more significant to many business situations. Images are vital
to marketing and pinterest integration with your website is now
vital to maintain competitive ranking in search.
How to start
Open a "Pinterest
account - make boards, label them and start pinning.
can follow your entire portfolio, or just the specific boards that
interest them most. Once followed the Pins you save will appear in
their feed. (in this case always associated with
both written and visual
info + your chosen links are built in to stay).
What is a feed?
A Pinterest feed is
like any feed on
any other social network - it’s data or let's just call it info -
about links and content from boards and users that a Pinner has
followed or pinned or re-pinned. The feed you
choose brings you automatic updates by email on who (which pinners) are
pinning your images.
How to set up a Pinterest account.
If you use Pinterest to
enhance the marketing
of your business, you MUST create a
"Pinterest for business" account
(this is free of any charge). Business accounts offer specific
valuable features including:
Analytics and the ability to use
Pinterest paid advertising if desired.
The account setup
is as easy as it gets - register - choose
name - choose business or personal - sign up DONE. Now - name
your boards and
start to pin. No payment is required or asked for to sign up and use
this system. Pinterest generate revenues by offering
advertising on a paid /
What user strategy is best?
= Experienced pinners will all say the
It is best to pin regularly / often - the system wants you to do
this, the most feedback and benefit goes to those who contribute
regularly. (my own tests qualify that
Pinterest gives priority to regular pinners). There are available, separate apps. (approved
by Pinterest), which help automate and schedule your pinning
process. (I have used "tailwind" and "pinfollow" - recommended).
Set your goals - Personal
/ Business - Define your strategy to suit.
Have fun - you are about to join the
fastest growing network on our planet.
How is Pinterest integrated in an existing website ?
Easily - when you have a business account
- see above - Pinterest "give" you access to all the codes free of
any charge +
instructions about how to configure and use them. These codes
"snippets" are cut and pasted from their page on-line into your
existing code at the point (on-page) where you want your new stuff to appear.
1. Sketch out where you want the P
buttons (of your design and choice) + any "call
to action links" to appear. 2. Paste in
the Pinterest supplied codes. 3. Upload the modified pages
to your webserver. All
done! Now, keep an eye on how your visitors behave (using P free
analytics and G analytics)
then make your own strategic alterations to suit. More visitors to your
website will result
(easy to see in analytics). - If you get your
message right then more sales will follow. -- This of
course is assuming your products or
displayed correctly to the right audience and only you
could know this! - How simple is that!

Summary - Having re-read this "my own script"
again just now - Even I find it too good to
be true - however I have the data - how ? Firstly - I had a quick look
and it made me think - then - I spent 12 months experimenting
for a couple of hours each day. - I searched for experts
everywhere I could and
read ALL of their stuff and then, did a LOT of what was recommended - I
integrated it in my websites,
then watched the results using analytics - I talked to friends and
family about it "they all let it go above their heads". Now I have
CONCRETE results there is a bit of a change in
Remember I said this can't be done overnight - but it can be
done at very low cost - if you wait then the cost will rise + 1. You
may find it NEEDS to be done to compete - and 2. You will find that
the catching up time becomes an issue - (that is how
most good ideas progress) -
"and that's all from me".
Every 10 seconds 82,000 new photos,
comments and graphics are added to Pinterest - this is
now early 2019, the trend
continues upwards and
the graph is not a straight line - there has to be a reason -
Pinterest have done
"more" things right than wrong - "that's for sure" my own
experimental testing reached 719,324 views in the last 4 weeks
+ I have recorded and saved details of more than 170,000 potential purchasers!
