Welcome from me Ricardo here in
Chester UK (ex-corporate business planner
and for 20+ years an entrepreneur - now retired) - Visits to
this page are coming from all over the world, I am answering

time"). The info below is being updated with developing knowledge daily!
Services I am offering right now are help with setup and

THE BIG NEWS is right here - I have
been working on how to develop and track "VIRAL PINS". In the last
couple of months - I have cracked / solved this - I have the data
now on 100 Viral Pins that worked this way - The process has
involved, a good bit of experimentation, but now IT WORKS "it
has created a mass of extra web hits to this page"
- now I need to find out how to do it by location! - I will of
Should you have Pinterest Save buttons on your
= "YES ABSOLUTELY and ASAP":
Pinterest Save buttons help people
to pin your website
images. Once you install the button
Visitors save and pin your
carrying a link back to your website. This
generates totally free web
traffic. If your images are good
they are re-saved by others - the result is a large increase in your
website visitors at ZERO cost! - How simple is
Here is my info step by step -
to start and how to generate new, no-cost
additional web traffic using Pinterest".
It works. Do this "now" and
the result will be - more discovery and more sales for less cost!
The images here on this page have been pinned by myself
- the first one does well - the second one went "viral" and so did
the third one. I am a "self-taught"
expert at understanding how to use and integrate Pinterest in web
marketing from a technical viewpoint - I understand this bit upside
down and inside out. One thing for sure - if images of your products
could perform anything even approaching the performance I achieved then
your sales will increase for the
lowest cost outlay imaginable. I have astounding figures as a result
of this research.
the software regularly - It's now Jan 2019 - I have studied over a
year and used all updates - here are my notes on/in progress:
There are NEW things added
There are more ways to accelerate the growth of followers
whilst maintaining cross traffic generation (this mornings count is
growing at +10% per week) - my Pinterest site views are already over
1.8 million viewers per MONTH! - If "you" would like to increase your own
web traffic Pinterest is certainly the right tool for you. (70k +
Pins on my own boards so far)
It's now becoming an expected practice for websites
to have Pinterest integration - so here is how it works.
Images here when pinned carry links back to this page which
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 repinned (I don't know how many
times it has been repinned from re-pins it could be a LOT!) - if each new destination pinboard attracts the same,
in a short time it will have reached millions of views / (new business) opportunities at a minuscule cost!
- I get many questions about "drop-shipping" and have started a
major study (based on information you can see here
Dropshipping DO NOT - follow this advice
without my recommendation - yet!
Pinterest ??? (many things to many people - now being referred to as
fastest" growing business on our planet.

All research by - Richard Grace
started in 2018
I first published
this page in March 2018 - and now (after building visitors + followers) I know that the "world" is very
- more than just here on our tiny island of UK (where "by the way" we are
VERY VERY SLOW in
With more than "280 million" daily
users and a growth rate of more than 50% per year, the indication
(a fact even) is
that Pinterest is fulfilling a demand rather well! It is
NOT another Facebook which
remains dominant in terms of group social interaction. Pinterest is
an image, # "AND" word / "searchable" matching application with astounding/addictive share-ability AND
top class functionality. + it is fun +
easy to use! (those are the main reasons for P's astonishing results)
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. The male equivalent has
over 50 % !!. Here in the UK we
"WILL" catch up
or catch on even us men. (I have just not discovered why we are so
far behind the International trends!
This relatively new ability to
record images and make comparisons of product availability and cost
is dramatically changing the way shopping works.
Pinterest has made image/idea sharing "easy and
product matching and price comparison
- "drag frame on image + click" or with
lens (pinterest image matching) "point your phone and click" (you are now looking at - choice,
links directly to suppliers info).
Pinterest is now THE
leading platform for image recognition, image comparison and image
sharing. (the Google of images with links built in). Many images / (pins)
click through directly to
more info, advisors and,
where you can review ideas, find and buy stuff
So - What now? Firstly - here directly below
is a working example of
a pin board
(it's embedded in this page and operates on a "live" basis)
- I started with 18 boards in total as part
of my research
- increased this to 50 whilst experimenting, including shared boards and sub-boards. All
these boards are all
connected "live", the one
right here here has (16,000+ photos
of cats!) - it could
easily be photos of your products) - "yes" I did say
sixteen thousand + cat
photos" - as you are reading this -
right now - you can try by
it - or read more and
come back. I recommend you
read more of this first - it's only a
5 minute read in
total (you are welcome to take longer!) !
Note: the integrated boards on this page are truncated for reasons of page
There are many untapped applications of this
technology for most if not all businesses as well as
benefits for users.
FREE Pinterest, powerful and
simple to use "app" lends itself to VERY easy integration
e.g. Images from sites can be saved and shared by anyone visiting
(THIS IS FREE MARKETING). Importantly (here is the benefit), these
images can and do carry inbuilt digital information of real value. This
means users can and do find more quickly the
of the product, idea, service or experience
being offered. This outstanding function
(unique to P) makes Pinterest a "search
engine" of amazing ability.
for most businesses:
If images of what you do or sell are
important then you MUST have a plan in place regarding
how to benefit from using
Pinterest. It has
to become a part of your
business strategy. If not, you’re missing
out on key opportunities, + (perhaps) exposing yourself to loss of
business to competitors. Why? - because your
will become P friendly sooner than yourself. (As
we are aware - shops and
stores are struggling right now and Amazon is building more capability by
the minute) - ask yourself why this is?
Why should you use Pinterest for business?
Pinterest is an
image based text searchable information network.
sharing ideas when planning projects or seeking out new products to buy, enjoy and use.
Pinterest is all set to overtake
"twitter" within months,
to become "second only" to Facebook in the league table of the
world's most used websites. Google of course
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. For example, boards can be
product offers, case studies, project information or simply
grouped images of things the pinner likes or aspires to.
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 + # (hashtags).
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. If you choose
to receive feedback the Pinterest
for business system will keep you informed day
and night (you select the frequency)
+ The Pinterest website
gives you all the info needed to understand how to
achieve the results you want.
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.
If you already have a
personal Pinterest account, you can convert it to a business account
easily. Simply, fill in some additional information about
your own business +
accept the business-specific terms of service.
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.
If you are reading this using a laptop and mouse - right click
- select "view source" and you will see
my own Pinterest code snippets right here
(you can do this on the mobile version but it is not as easy). So - Pinterest give you the code snippets -
you paste them in. Of course - you may choose to leave this to
whoever looks after your website (or ask them
to give you 10 minutes training) - But let us
not pretend this is difficult.
1. Sketch out where you want the P
buttons (of your design and choice) + any "action
call 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!
