Need some help please for Pinterest

(Kelly) #1

I have no clue how to use this thing. I’ve never bothered before. I’ve created 2 boards which are for myself, can anyone tell me if they can see them?

I want to make some other boards of things i love like patchwork etc but i need to know I’m doing this right before i go any further! :grimacing:

Thanks ladies & gents if there’s any around! x :smile:

Jeez, the link might help but i don’t even know it! :grin: It’s called tagpress if you can find it! lol. x

I can see your boards Kelly @tagpress. I’ve just followed you.
Just have fun with it. Create your pin boards (anything that takes your fancy) and pin things you find to the relevant board.
Hope this helps.

I spend way too long playing on Pinterest :grinning::grinning:

Thanks ever so much Karen @karenscraftybitz, you’re an angel! At least I’m doing it right. I saw you followed me, i followed back. x

I can see them too. You might want to add the URL to your shop (under shop appearance in your account page).

I only started on Pinterest a few months ago. Be warned though - it can be very addictive (especially if you are a sucker for cute fluffy animals!) :blush:

You will be a Pinterest pro in no time at all :wink:

OMG Kelly you’re a stormy! I’ve followed you lol. I pin what I like and follow lots of people hoping they’ll follow back. If you build up a good following and pin regularly your items will get more exposure. Type in your niche in the search (mines crochet I’m guessing yours would be product packaging?) Or even folksy and find a board or pinner with a good amount of followers follow these people and chances are you’ll get followed back as they’re interested in your niche. It takes time but I love my pinterest home page when a load of beautiful images pop up :slight_smile:

Thanks so much @KnittedPops LOL! :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes: Many thanks for following me and the info you left has helped a lot! I’ve put you on follow too. I gave myself a banging headache but I’ve got those 2 boards finished. I’m having a break watching tv now but tomorrow morning I think I know what to do lmao! x :grin:

You ladies on Folksy are wonderful! I’m hailing you all! lol x

(Eileens Craft Studio) #11

pinterest is very addictive as there are so many lovely things to look at :smile:

I will see if I can find you :slight_smile:

(Eileens Craft Studio) #12

Found you and are now following you :smile:

(Kelly) #13

Thank you Eileen, I got a notification so I’m following you too! x :smile:

(CopperTobi) #14

You all have extra one follower ladies :slight_smile:

(Diane Burton) #15

Found you & following you, I’m just to confuse people (every other relevant name I tried had been taken!) I’ve not been on pinterest long but have to admit I’m addicted to looking through everything (don’t always pin much just look) I take part in the papercraft promotion thread and have been making a board each week with the same theme and pinning folksy makes that fitted the theme (both mine and other crafters) I also made a board with dresses when I was looking for something to wear for our daughter’s graduation (but in the end bought something I hadn’t pinned) so mine isn’t all about ‘business’

(Amberlilly) #16

Go and follow you all, I need to get back into the swing of Pinterest in the hope to get some traffic from there! and the elusive sale LOL

(Amberlilly) #17

I can’t find your Pinterst link @TobisiasLilThing

(Amberlilly) #18

Kelly, I cant find you. Do you have a link or follow me and will follow back :smile:

(Amberlilly) #19

I think I have followed all apart from @tagpress ? If not let me know.

(Kelly) #20

Thanks Diane @DeesDesigns, I’ve just put you on follow and possibly @TobisiasLilThing, are you Monika? If so you’re on follow too.

I’m going to brainstorm and try to find you @Amberlilly lol. I’ll let you know if I’m successful!! My name is just tagpress on there if that’s of any help to you? You’ll probably find me quicker than i’ll find you but i’ll do my best!! x
