Pinterest Marketing For Online Marketers

by @ 5:43 am. Filed under Internet Marketing, website traffic

Pinterest Marketing For Online Marketers

Pinterest Marketing Image

Pinterest is the latest social “buzz” site of the moment, stacking up numbers which
would even make Google blush. This “picture” bookmarking site has only been around
since 2010 (domain was created at the end of 2009) and holds the record for the fastest

growing site in history.

It took Pinterest only 9 months to go from 50,000 to 17,000,000 users. It is increasing at
40% each month and is on track to reach 180 million users by the end of this year.

Impressive numbers indeed, but for webmasters and online marketers, that’s not really
the important factor concerning Pinterest. What really has marketers buzzing is Pinterest’s
referral numbers.

Members or users of Pinterest “click thru to your site” more often than users of Facebook,
Twitter, Stumbleupon… in other words Pinterest has become a valuable source of free
targeted traffic on the web. More importantly, because your pins can get re-pinned over and
over again, your content lasts a long time and has legs.

Many experts compare this traffic to YouTube content which can deliver traffic to your
site for years.

That’s what really has online marketers excited about this new picture sharing site, use it
properly and Pinterest can deliver targeted prospects for your business for years into the
future. It is also great for building a community of customers or interested parties, ready
for your latest offering.

Of course, like any online site or platform, Pinterest has to be used in the right manner,
if you plan on marketing your business or site on it. If you just figure on signing up for
Pinterest, pinning a few images and then wait for the referral traffic to flood your site –
well, you might hit it lucky but like all these social programs, you have to prime the pump.

One of the best resources or experts on Pinterest (which I have found) is Jason Miles –
Vice President for Advancement at Northwest University. He runs a very informative site called

But the real reason I pay special attention to what Jason has to say – his wife runs a Doll’s Clothing/Pattern site on
the web! They have first-hand experience of how Pinterest has helped their niche business and have figured out ways to
take full advantage of Pinterest from an online marketing perspective.

As a given rule, I find it is these “hands-on” individuals who supply the best information, regardless of the program
or platform. The same applies here – they have been there, done that and give us the best nuggets of information which
bring in the traffic and sales.

So if you’re wondering how you can use Pinterest for your business or site, watch the following video carefully and
take notes. This video is called “Pinterest Marketing for Niche Businesses” and was done via Ken Evoy’s SBI SiteBuildIt Review program.
It will give you valuable information on how to use Pinterest to your advantage and help you really discover what
all the fuss is about.

Important Takeaways:

– Always create an Attractive/Informative/Interesting image for each
piece of content you have on the web. Make these images your “pre-selling” tools
which will get re-pinned and bring targeted traffic back to your site or business.

– Always remember it’s about building online communities and joining those
communities together. Fully integrate your Pinterest followers with your
Twitter, Facebook… followers.

– Always make sure you have your images fully optimized with your
information – product name, product description… and of course,
a link back to your site.

Pinterest, Images And Getting More Traffic

I must make a confession, while I have been using images to
get targeted traffic for years, until a little while ago I had
never heard of! As I said before, I am not that
much of a social media person, but that hasn’t stopped me from
taking full advantage of Twitter, YouTube, Facebook, Linkedin…
when it comes to promoting my sites.

Have you heard of Pinterest?

It’s a very simple concept – an online bulletinboard where people
pin their pictures. Pinterest users can share and re-pin images that
they like and you can also follow other pinners.

Pinterest has only been around for two years but is slated to
be the break-out social media site for 2012.

According to Bizreport, Pinterest delivers almost as
much referral traffic as Twitter and Google.

According to Hitwise, Pinterest is one of the top 5 social networks
on the web. In an article, Huffingtonpost states that Pinterest hit 10 million
monthly views faster than any other site in history. But what really
caught my eye, were two important facts concerning traffic…

- Pinterest delivers more referral traffic than Google+, YouTube
and Linkedin Combined

- Pinterest users stay on the image site longer than Facebook users

On average, Pinterest users spend 15.8 minutes sharing images, while
Facebook comes in at around 12.1 minutes. This metric is important
because, where Internet users spend most of their Internet day is
vital to advertisers and the amount of traffic you get.


Another important feature which caught my attention – you can link
your images directly to your site or URL. This is extremely vital
for getting traffic and exposure for your products or services.
You can also tag or keyword your images which is needed for
full SEO benefit.

Furthermore, you can also pin your videos on the site, which
really makes Pinterest something you should be interested in,
pardon the pun.

Being a former professional artist (albeit a poor one), I am extremely
interested in using Pinterest to full advantage. Over the years, images
have been a great source of traffic for me, especially from “image search”
on the major search engines such as Google, Bing and Yahoo.

Some webmasters and online marketers ignore the importance of images
in their promotions. Don’t! These images can be a great source of
traffic for your site or sites.

Only downer I can see, you have to put your name on the waiting
list before you can get an invite from Pinterest. Currently, from
what I can gather, the waiting time is around one week.

But the sooner you’re on that waiting list, the sooner you
can be pinning images and getting all that free traffic.

5 Top Traffic Sources For Your Site

I believe if you asked any webmaster or online marketer what their
most important aspect of running a site would be, you would get an
answer that’s some way related to traffic. Mainly because traffic
is your site’s lifeblood, actually without traffic you really don’t
have a site at all.

Traffic brings in the leads and the sales. Quality traffic is what
produces your online revenue, whether from advertising or from sales
on your site.

Traffic is king.

Now, I have sites which get less than 50 visitors a day, I have a few
sites which get around 200 visitors a day and I have one site which
gets around 2,000 visitors a day.

Don’t jump to any conclusions, some days the site getting 50 visitors
can make just as much as the site getting 2,000 visitors. It all has
to do with the quality of the traffic and how well it converts into
a sale. And of course, it all depends on what you’re selling… a lcd
cleaning kit for $20 bucks or a gaming laptop which sell for $2000+.

Regardless, you have to get that traffic in the first place if you
want to earn an online income. The more traffic you have, usually,
the more you will make; at least this has been my experience. Since
traffic is very important to me, I keep a lot of records and stats on
where my traffic is coming from on the web. I have to know what produces
the quality traffic and how to get it.

Now, below I have listed down my 5 most important traffic sources
and/or the marketing techniques I use to get that traffic. This list
might also help you with your own traffic and how you can increase it.

Here are my 5 main traffic sources…

1. SEO and the Search Engines

The majority of the traffic to my sites comes from the search engines,
mainly Google. It is my high rankings for my targeted keyword phrases
which brings in the most and the best quality traffic to my sites. Get
the SEO right and build a lot of quality one-way links from related
sites and you will get the traffic. Another tactic, don’t just create
a website with only 10 or 20 pages – create one with 1000 to 5000 pages.
I know this takes time but consider your site like a long-term business
which you will keep building for years. Produce plenty of quality content
and you will get plenty of quality visitors in return. Works for me.

2. Article Marketing

Another very effective way to bring in quality traffic to your site or
sites is article marketing. Just write short articles related to your
site’s keywords and place your keyworded links in the resource box.
Distribute these articles all over the web. Right now, what is working
for me, is writing unique articles which I only place on one important
site. I am using this technique with sites like SiteProNews, Buzzle and
many more. Article marketing is still one of the most effective ways to
get quality traffic, just try it.

3. PPC – Pay Per Click Advertising

I know, I know, this can be very expensive but PPC can be the quickest
way to get quality traffic to your sites. Just be careful and approach
it with kid’s gloves until you find campaigns which work for you – then
scale them up. Microsoft Adcenter and Yahoo Marketing have now joined
forces and I find this is producing good traffic for me. Google adwords
is probably better but they are a real pain to work with and have become
too expensive, at least for my keywords. But if you have the resources,
don’t rule out Adwords or any of the PPC programs.

4. Social Media Sites

From Facebook to Twitter to Linkedin, social media sites can provide a
lot of traffic and word of mouth advertising for your site. For me, even
though I haven’t worked these sites to their fullest potential, I still
get traffic from them. Getting your pages bookmarked in some of these
sites can bring in a flood of traffic overnight, while most of this traffic
will be temporary, you can get a lot of sign-ups to your newsletter and
different follow-up lists. While not exactly in the same group, I have
had some success with YouTube videos which also bring in targeted traffic.
Don’t ignore these social media and video sites in your traffic strategies.

5. Email Marketing and Follow-up Lists

This is another one of my major sources of “repeat visitors” to my sites.
You must be constantly building up your different contact lists for further
follow-up. This will bring in more visitors than you would expect, especially
if you put some simple viral messages in your emails. If you supply valuable
information, people will recommend your content to friends and co-workers;
again word of mouth can bring in a lot of traffic especially in this age
of Facebook and Twitter.

Of course, there are many more traffic sources such as Press Releases, Banner Ads,
RSS Feeds, Off-line Advertising… and if you have your own products to promote,
affiliates and joint ventures will be your most valuable source of traffic. Over
the years I have picked up a lot of information on traffic and traffic tips…
some of the best places/people for this has been: – run by Tinu Abayomi-Paul, one of my best sources for free traffic tips. Excellent. – this site and newsletter gives you off-beat ways to build traffic to your site. Highly Recommended.

Crashing The Traffic Party – How To Use The World’s Top Sites To Promote Your Own Site

BWMagic’s Internet Marketing News!

o Crashing The Traffic Party – How To Use The World’s Top Sites
To Promote Your Own Site

Most times, common sense is the only Internet marketing strategy you need.
All you have to do is use some simple reasoning to achieve your goals, many
times it is only a matter of using your head to figure out the easiest route
to success.

For example, one of the hardest obstacles to overcome for most webmasters
is getting enough traffic to their sites. You need traffic if your site is
to succeed – plain and simple. You must have traffic and lots of it.

It doesn’t take a genius to realize, in order to get traffic you must go to
the places/sites that have the majority of the traffic on the web. These top
sites command enormous amounts of traffic each day and they get thousands
of visitors each second.

So it stands to reason, you must put or place your site into this whole traffic
mix of these top sites. Fortunately, this is very easily done without too
much work on your part, but it may mean joining many of these top sites and
doing some self-promotion.

First up, you have to tackle the search engines which represent or controls
much of the quality traffic on the web. People use these sites to find what
they’re looking for on the net, you must get your site listed/ranked on these
search engines, especially Google.

Google is the number one site in the world and until Bing/Yahoo replaces it,
you must gear your site towards Google. This is not difficult, actually it
is quite simple. One of the keys to getting listed and ranked well in this top
site of the web is quality unique content. Just create unique quality
content on your site and Google will notice you and send you traffic.

I like taking a holistic approach to Google, it is not simply a search
engine, it is much, much more. You have to tie your site into all the many
different facets of Google – use iGoogle to create your profile,
use Google Products to promote your products, use YouTube to promote
your videos, use Google News to promote your latest news or articles,
use Google Docs to promote your PDF files and ebooks, use Blogger to
promote your blogs and RSS feeds… and the list goes on.

By incorporating or totally immersing your site into the Google online
juggernaut, you will receive plenty of quality traffic. I also like to
connect my sites with the commercial side of Google by using Adwords
and buying search traffic. I also use Google Adsense on my sites to
off-set the cost of buying that traffic. Actually, truth be told, I spend
the majority of my time – adjusting, optimizing and promoting my content
within Google.


We have to go back to the common sense factor again, my traffic logs
and stats show that Google sends me around 80% of my traffic. It is
only natural that I concentrate on optimizing my site and content
to please Google. But that doesn’t mean I ignore the other search
engines or the other top sites on the web, just the opposite is true.

Mainly because Google has a complex algorithm they use to rank sites and
content on the web. One major overriding part of these 200 or so ranking
factors is how well your site is connected with other sites/content on the
web. Getting backlinks from high PR sites is vital for achieving high
rankings. Webpages are given PageRank from 0 to 10, with 10 being the best.

Now, by activily connecting/promoting your site within the top
sites on the web, you’re telling Google your site is important.
Moreover, web users are telling Google your site/content is important
and relevant. Getting backlinks on top sites like Wikipedia, YouTube,,… will tell Google your content matters to web surfers.
Likewise, getting your content bookmarked in all the social networking
sites like Facebook, MySpace, Digg, Flickr, Twitter… will tell Google
and the other search engines your content is relevant.

Proving that your content is relevant will be one of the major keys
to getting top rankings, especially in Google. Therefore, connecting
your content with all the major sites on the web makes sense, no matter
how you view it. Having your content discussed, bookmarked and linked
to will make all the difference in the world to the success of your

Now, as mentioned before, getting your site/content connected and linked
from these top sites is not difficult. Simply join many of these sites
and create profiles, submit content, add your links and so on. Another
way is to make it easy for your site’s content to be bookmarked in many
of these top social media sites. I like using a simple button like the one
from which makes it easy for your visitors to bookmark your
content for you. Again, common sense and simple practicality wins the day.

So is your site well connected to the top sites on the web? Does
it have a presence in all these high volume traffic sites? If the
answer is no, then your site is probably missing out on a lot of
free traffic which it could be getting. Just make a conscience effort
to involve and connect your site/content with many of these top
sites on the web. You will be pleasantly surprised with the results
of your efforts. So start mingling now!

Here’s a short list of some the Top Sites and their PageRank:

1. Google PR10

2. Facebook PR9

3. Yahoo! PR9

4. YouTube PR9

5. Windows Live PR8

BWMagic’s Internet Marketing News!

The beginning of September has always been the most
dreaded time of the year for me. Summer has just ended and
the long cold days of winter lie in waiting.

The first days of September also means “Back To Work” time
for me. In years past, it meant getting ready for a new
school year and all the work that entailed. Now it means
getting back to my Internet stuff. Just guess which one
I would rather be doing?

It also means a time for new directions and changes.
Reassessing what works and where to best spend your time
and efforts. This year I will be concentrating on increasing
my traffic to my different sites and finding new ways to boost
those numbers.

Two new directions for me are videos and social media/networking.
Unfortunately, these two areas are way out of my comfort zone,
however, one thing I have learned from working full-time on the
web, you must follow the crowd, no matter where they lead you.

You must plug your sites into the whole mix of what is happening
on the web. Inn other words, you must follow the traffic. Right now
there is a definite swing to videos and the social networking sites.
You must embrace these two areas if you want to get maximum


I have had enough success with videos that I went out and bought
a new camcorder (Canon Vixia HF200 – great little machine) with
the hope of making some “over the shoulder videos” of the different
marketing techniques and tactics I use in the daily running of my
9 or 10 websites.

Videos are a simple way to bring in traffic and sales. And it’s
not that difficult – I am still kinda shocked to realize some young
teenager not even in high school can pull in 4 or 5 grand a month
by partnering with Google Adsense on YouTube.

For many people that’s a full-time income. Heck, when I was in my
Starving Artist Stage – 5 grand would have made a nice yearly income!

Videos present an excellent way of producing sales and traffic.

They are also great for building your contact list. Many popular
YouTubers have lists of over 1 million subscribers. Just imagine
the marketing power of releasing a video about your favorite product
or program to hundreds of thousands of loyal subscribers.

Then there is the pure marketing benefits of using videos. It is
a perfect way to get your point across. I can’t remember any recent
major product launch that DIDN’T have at least one video on the
sales page. Videos have become a marketing stable for selling your
products – online or off.

So try producing your own videos or have someone else produce them
for you. If you’re like me, the real problem is getting the time
to make your own videos – I am hoping I will get the time to explore
for myself the whole process of making my own videos but if that
doesn’t work out I can still use the video services offered by such
places as… they produce very professional videos
which work.

Video marketing is the wave of the future on the net so you simply
can’t ignore this excellent way of bringing in more traffic and sales.

Social Networking Sites

If you have been marketing on the web for some time – it’s really
hard to believe how new social media/network sites have changed
how business is done. The growing importance of Twitter is just
one example of how quickly these sites have invaded our daily

It has also become an excellent way to build your list of contacts
and an excellent way to announce any new product or program you want
your contacts to know about. Online marketers are taking advantage
of Twitter to build their traffic and to boost their sales.

I have started using Twitter myself but as mentioned before I am
not one for these social networking sites… I would rather concentrate
my marketing efforts on ranking high for my chosen lucrative keywords
but I can’t ignore Twitter because it has become a popular program
everyone and their grandmother is using. You have to take advantage
and plug your site and marketing into this whole traffic hub.

Mainly because your content must be seen as relevant by the search
engines and one simple way to do this is to tie it all in with these
new network sites… I make it a point to have my content linked
(in one way or another) to many of the top 50 sites on the Internet.
That’s why I like using sites/programs like Blogspot/Blogger,
YouTube, Twitter, MySpace, Facebook, WordPress, Wiki, Craiglist…

Try linking/connecting your site/content to all these top ranked
sites in the world and you will see a marked improvement in both
your traffic and sales. You must place your content into the whole
mix of what’s happening on the web.

Getting your content into these places/sites is not difficult. In fact
it is extremely simple – you can even place your content there yourself
or have your visitors place it there for you.

Can’t count how many times I have told you about the free
button which lets your visitors bookmark your content in all of the
above sites FOR YOU. This button and others like it, actually works
if you have quality, interesting content to share… you will also
see a rise in your rankings because the search engines are paying
special attention of what content gets repeatedly bookmarked by ordinary
web users.

Using this social bookmark button or others like it is a simple way
to boost your traffic and sales.

Are you using it?

Other Ways Of Boosting Traffic And Sales

When I need to get more traffic and sales… here are some of the
things I do:

1. Write Quality Articles & Distribute Them All Over The Web

Doesn’t quite work as well as it once did but for popular articles
that get picked up and placed on countless related sites, article
marketing is still one of my most effective ways for getting traffic
and sales. I mainly use Ezinearticles, Phantomwriters, iSnare,
Submityourarticle… for getting my articles out there.

2. Put Out Press Releases

I am seeing great short term and long term results by using Press Releases.
They have become one of my major marketing tools of the moment,
I am mainly using PRWeb but it is rather expensive. So if you’re on a
tight budget, you can try the many free press release sites such as

3. Increase My PPC Advertising Budget in Google Adwords, Yahoo and

When I want targeted traffic fast – I simply buy it! But be careful
because you have to know exactly what you’re doing with PPC or you can
lose a lot of money fast. So do your homework first.

4. Release a New Video On YouTube

YouTube is a great place for getting more traffic coming to your
site or sites. I like doing “how-to” videos and offering free guides
to build up my contact list of interested customers. The sale is in
the follow-up.

5. Post More Entries In My Different Blogs Around The Web

I have blogs with Blogger, WordPress, LiveJournal, Bloglines… this
always brings in immediate traffic to my sites and it is extremely
easy to do. Just make sure the content is of high quality and it will
get picked up or linked to on other related blogs.

6. Create More Keyword Targeted Content For My Many Different Sites

This is a more “long-term” solution for me, but this is the most effective
way to get good quality traffic, especially from Google. Until Bing/Yahoo
enters the picture, Google simply supplies the most search traffic on the
web so gear your sites towards Google for the immediate future.

7. Release a new viral eBook, Report or Guide

Many times I even create a new website to go along with these new guides.
The most vital part of selling on the web is that you must never play the
pushy-salesman role; but rather be a helpful guide who buyers turn to for
help and information. Learn the art of the “Pre-Sell” and you will
succeed online. Let the real selling be done by your affiliate partners.

8. Send Out Newsletters to all my Different Contact Lists

I run many newsletters and follow-up programs; it is still one
of the best ways to get repeat traffic to my sites. Sometimes
I wonder the wisdom of passing along the marketing tactics and
techniques I use to create profitable sites since I am really giving
my competition some valuable information that can be used against
me. But I have over-ruled myself and only keep the very vital
specific stuff relating directly to my sites secret.

9. Do Joint Projects With My Online Contacts and Fellow Marketers

The more you help others, the more you will succeed. This is also
the main reason I keep writing this newsletter, I have been tempted
many times to shut it down because of what I discussed
above – information can be used against you, especially in very
competitive niches. However, I get more good results than bad by
helping other people succeed online!

10. Use Your Site’s Raw Traffic Logs and Stats

When I get some spare time – I spend it digging through my raw
traffic log stats. I hunt down lucrative long-tail keyword phrases
that are already bringing in some traffic and sales. I then boost my
rankings for these keyword phrases by placing them in article titles,
blog posts, etc. and linking that content to my ranking page. By closely
monitoring what keywords are bringing in the traffic and sales…
I can adjust my marketing to rank higher for those keywords, mainly
in Google.

My content is ranked for thousands of keywords but the real trick is finding
the profitable ones and building traffic for those specific keywords and
boosting your sales. Close examination and tracking of my site’s traffic
logs will offer up the real jewels in the crown. The same probably applies
to your site or sites. Go find those long-tail keywords and exploit them.

Hope these tips help you in some way. Trying just some of them should
bring in more traffic and sales… they work for me and they should
also work for you.
