Making the Most of Pinterest for Etsy Shop

Hey Guys! 

I am using my Pinterest account to help bring more traffic to the Etsy shop that I have.  Does anyone have any tips or advice for me? I am just starting out! I've been on Pinterest for years, but never with a business account. 

 

Thank you!

Sara

Hey folks,

@PinterestGabby thanks for tagging.

Here are my tips for you Sara, @stilwell_sara 

 Your pins related to your listed products will drive the most relevant traffic to your shop.

  • Pins like these appeal to the audience. Seeing your product on someone gives them an idea of it in use.
  • If possible, try to tell a story through your pins. Storytelling pins are easy to relate to and capture people’s imagination.
  • Pin regularly. You need to be present in the mind of your audience, and pinning periodically is the key. Make sure to at least pin twice a day. However, don’t overdo with pinning. It may backfire, and your followers may spam you.
  • Use catchy captions for your pins and always keep your keyword game on point.

Hi @stilwell_sara 

Jumping right in here! I'm also curious to learn some tips on using Pinterest to drive traffic to Etsy. I have set up my shop a few months back, and it's my understanding that many shop owners use Pinterest to bring traffic to their stores. However, I wonder if they enlist any specific strategies, use ads, or a combination of both.

@stilwell_sara and @kidpressroom -- I'm curious [from a community perspective] do we need to have some more content in the PBC about Pinterest x Etsy? I wonder if sharing more best practices or creating more threads about it would be helpful for the community!
