I hope that your weekend was good. It seems like there is just not enough hours in the day to get things done here lately. But I digress.
I did get some reading done this weekend and stumbled on an awesome podcast by one of my favorite bloggers – Lisa Irby (of 2CreateaWebsite.com) entitled “How to Build Traffic with Pinterest“.
Lisa’s podcast delivers some great information concerning Pinterest and ways that you can use it to drive traffic to your website or blog (if you have one) .
I also listened to the video below from April Marie Tucker that gives specific tips on How to Get More Traffic and Sales Using Pinterest. When you have time, pleaseeee check out this video.
April does an amazing job of breaking down what you need to do to setup boards on Pinterest, how to add keywords that you would like to rank for and more.
What is Pinterest?
Pinterest is a social platform that allows you to share images or videos by adding them to “boards” – based on the things you like.
