Do you think Pinterest is just for fun?

Do you think Pinterest is just for fun? Oh, the beautiful images!

 

Do you think Pinterest is just for fun?Or are you like some, who think it can help you in Google Search results? I'd put myself in the latter group, although it is indeed fun! 

 

Recent changes by Google has speculated major search results changes by SEO experts, to include significant algorithm changes.  After researching some of my keywords that I focus on, I've noticed it to be a good thing for me, while noticing my Pinterest Boards popping up at the top few positions for my keywords. So Pinterest must be seen as relevant content. 

 

If you're a Real Estate Agent or in a business that is associated with Real Estate, you need to take a look at Pinterest, again. Heck, if you're in any business you need to take a closer look! Maybe you've already set up an account, made a few boards, pinned a few pins and followed a few pinners, well now, it's suggested that you add it to your business plan unless, you want to be left in the Pinterest dust of others competing for the same business.

 

You're thinking, geeze another social media network- can I really add that to my plate right now? Sure, I understand, that you have to choose the methods in which you can keep up with, as there are so many between our beloved Active Rain, Google+, Linkedin, Facebook, Twitter, etc., and now you want me to add Pinterest, where all I see are a bunch of pretty images!

 

Believe me, it's more than just a pretty image but, the images certainly are wonderful. Images draw people in instantly, wanting to find out more. On Pinterest, you can pin things that you admire and enjoy along with your business images. For example, I love dogs and you'll find that my "Our Unconditional Friends - Dogs" has almost 300 followers. What do dogs have to do with Real Estate, you ask? Nothing, but it's something I enjoy that I add to my mix of Real Estate Boards, such as Coral Springs Real Estate.  I also have a Real Estate collaboration Board where many Real Estate Agents can contribute to a Board that will also appear on your list of Boards too. (If you want to be a part of the collaboration Board just let me know and I can add your name). Of course, in addition, you'll want to set up boards that go with the home, afer all, we sell homes.

 

What is the proper mix of Boards? Just like anything in Social Media, you don't want to be all just Real Estate business, as you'll want to mix it up.

 

So if you're thinking that Pinterest is just for fun, I invite you to think again.

Thanks for a great post on pinterest.  In many ways though being a dog lover actually does have a bearing on real estate.  We all have our likes and that draws people in with the same likes.  I have actually formed some nice friendships with people on pinterest.

Lynn,   I know many of us realtors are afraid of tying to keep up with too many social networks.  I find that by getting insight form others, i can make better decisons on what to focus on.

You need more than one color in the box, the real estate tool skill set and harnessing, weeding and feeding the media streams is critical. Videos really rocket the SEO too but all your energy, eggs in one marketing basket is never good advice. Flickr images too that are salt and peppered, linked to and circulated all help the exposure, impressions and to stand out too!

I have to admit it's just another form of social media to climb a"board" until the next hot spot comes along but I do need to take advantage.  Thanks for the inspiration!

Chris, glad to hear you found Pinterest a good time while getting ready to be up and adam.  Hope you're going better now. Perhaps Pinterest aided in your healing by giving you some fun while seated!

Rain, you're right as our common interests do allow us to form good relationships with people particularly on Pinterest with other like minded people.

Christine, you really need to think about taking a closer peek at Pinterest - it has a lot to offer

Sally and David, oh so glad to hear that I'm "inspiring" you :)

Rob, so true, as many wonder how many different Social Media outlets can you handle and what will you enjoy the most while benefiting from also.  If you don't like doing it, it will show through and it will feel like drudgery.

Gita, thank you.  Good to hear that you'll give Pinterest a closer look.

Andrew, putting your eggs all in one basket will never work - I agree.  You need to find out what will work best for you and do it whole heartily.

Christa, ugh, I hear you.  I think you need to choose what makes you tick when it comes to Social media.

Barb, another Social media platform yes it is and if it intrigues you to look into it further you really should. I believe you'd find great enjoyment from it plus an added plus to your business,

My experience with Pinterest has been a mixed bag. It does help a little bit with google rankings, but the hard part is conversion. Likes and repins are great, but it seems that getting them to click the image a 2nd time is the hard part. Most people just want to put cool things on their boards and not much else.

Hi Alan. It does help with showing up in Google searches you're right, as for some of my key words I'm on page one and like anything conversion is key, so true. We need to focus on getting our message out with the boards/pins that we want to be found for our business, so we can get the customers to seek us out

Pinterest helps with media. As a stay home mom. I spend hours and hours on it. In a Google search it still comes up with positive information.
