This week on the Craft Business Challenge:
We start a series on marketing your business on Pinterest.
I started updating my Pinterest business marketing articles and ended up with an entire series of articles about how to promote your business on Pinterest. I'm still working on finishing the last few articles, so this week we'll start with the first five articles in the series. Two are brand new, and three are past articles about using Pinterest for business with substantial updates to reflect the newest developments.
Pinterest is an excellent platform for marketing a creative business. It's not particularly tough to master, and with a little work on the front-end, you can promote your business on Pinterest with a reasonable time commitment. I'll share how I grow my presence on Pinterest, and the workflow I use to keep the workload manageable.
I've set up the newsletter a bit differently this week. Usually, I separate out the new articles and the timely tips from the past. This week, because all of the articles are part of a series, I've organized them in the logical way that they fit together. Each article stands on its own, but if your are new to Pinterest business marketing, reading each in order will take you through a logical progression.
The new articles are marked with the word new, so you'll be able to find them easily.
