The social media audience I didn’t realise I had

I have been using Later.com to set up posts to my social media accounts a whole lot more in the past week. Today I started to look at Pinterest and what it might do.

Oh what a lightbulb moment!

Now, I don’t normally think of Pinterest as a place to promote any of my online business interests, but something told me I ought to look at the stats.
I converted my account to business some time ago, but have just never capitalized on the potential. I mainly think of it as a place to research, store and exchange recipes and it does that very well. Over 3 or 4 years I have built up over 600 followers – that’s more than Instagram – AND – most amazingly 8k a month traffic to my pins. I was absolutely flabbergasted!

I also got some information on the people who visit my account, including their interests, age ranges and gender. Other information tells me that Pinterest users really do spend money.

So, I quickly set up a couple of Pinterest posts from Later.com and one immediate one in the boards that get most visitors and re-pins. The pictures in those pins have been carefully chosen to appeal to the people who visit that particular board. There is nothing to prevent you adding posts to a board that are on a different subject. I also have a specific board that relates to CBD and I will make more use of that in the future. Pinterest has a feature, whereby you can choose the boards that are shown at the top of your account, so it makes sense to have the boards that already get the most visits AND the ones relating to your business up there.

Take a look at what I have done over on Pinterest – https://www.pinterest.co.uk/jennysue19/

How can you link from multiple Instagram posts to multiple destinations?

Instagram can be great for promoting any kind of business but it has one really annoying shortcoming – you can only have one link to another site, and it has to be from your bio page.

This limitation has been nagging me for some time, so today I decided to do some research into the issue.

I have already been using Later.com to schedule Instagram posts ahead of time, and that has Linkin.bio but unless you have the paid version, it doesn’t fully solve the problem.

One possible solution is to make a page on the site that you link to, which offers your visitor a number of possible solutions, where they would like to go next for more information, based on the post they came from.

However, I was looking for something more sophisticated, so I was really pleased to find this article which describes in detail, what the options are and how to decide which is right for your purposes.

How to get a free done-for-you website from Instaffiliate

Do you dream of having a ready made really attractive website that really sucks traffic and commissions linked up to your Clickbank account ? Could you make such a site on your own?

Just imagine that all the bells and whistles are already in place, the SEO is done, they site is keyword optimized and monetized. All YOU have to do is promote it.

Now imagine that someone wants to give you this site – totally FREE. You’re dreaming right?

Link, share, curate, consolidate

Most people with a few years’ experience in network marketing will find themselves creating a presence online in a number of different ways. For instance, I have this blog, my personal Facebook account PLUS a business page, Twitter, Pinterest, Google+ an IBO Toolbox account, a page on about.me and a LinkedIn account.

I already often curate and share content between the blog and IBO by re-purposing what I write in one place, for the other. This article is a good example.

Yesterday I wrote a new PR over on IBO about the wisdom of buying gold as a savings product due to the jitteriness of world financial markets. This is a curated quote and link and I hope you will go and read it – but after you read the rest of my post here!

The threat is that the value of your savings in traditional holdings like bank deposits and stocks and shares (and linked securities like UK ISAs) is going to decline very suddenly and very seriously. If you are looking at retirement in the next year or two, then this could be of very great concern to you. Your projected retirement income could be slashed and you could be looking at a future with not enough money to last your lifetime.

Wake up, or Lose Out, IBOSocial PR

I don’t want to copy it word for word over here and Google won’t like it if I do.
As a method of creating  your brand, linking your online places together in this way can really pay dividends and improve your business image.

Other ways I can draw attention to my PR/post:

  • Tweet about it
  • Create a Pinterest pin that links to it
  • Post about it on Google+
  • Update your Facebook status with a link to it
  • Use the same tags/keywords across all your references

People are more likely to remember you and trust you if your name keeps popping into their online experience – and they will also remember why you are online and what you are promoting,  to the extent it is very likely that they will subscribe to an offer or visit an affiliate site – exactly what you are aiming for.
