Hi!  I just launched an Etsy shop and would like to focus my marketing on Pinterest.  Is it good to pin from my Etsy shop to show my listing or does Pinterest SEO prefer if I create a new pin instead?  Thank you!

Hello! Here are some advices from me:

Pinterest, like many social media networks, is a community.

When a seller markets in that community, it is important not to simply promote products but rather to genuinely contribute. Follow others and repin what they post too. Don’t forget that Pinterest is a visual search engine. Its users communicate with pictures, so you will need to make certain that you have good product photography for your Etsy items.

On Pinterest, you can create group boards that allow you and those you invite to pin. These boards can become popular and are an excellent way to increase awareness. 

Plan to pin several images daily, six or seven days per week. Also try to pin at different times of the day.  Try more than just product photos on a white background, which is a best practice on Etsy, for your Pinterest pins. Try lifestyle images, close ups, or even photo filters to make your product visually interesting.
