Pinterest Tip for Book Marketing

Use Pinterest to get your books seen by more people than regularly visit your blog. I use three elements to bring traffic in--original recipes, book covers and reviews, and memes. Then, along the sidebar, I post my books with links to their Amazon pages, like this

Step 1: Design blog posts that can have pin-able elements.
This includes pictures for my recipes,

Book Covers that lead them to my reviews,

and memes they want to save that will point them back to my blog.

Step 2: Pin to Pinterest

Step 3: Check your blog's analytics to see which pins people are interested in following back to your blog post. For me, they come for the original recipes.

I love this. I wish I had a draw like recipes.

I'd like to know more about this. Do you set up a specific board that has your blog recipes in it, so people will click on the link that takes them to you website? And how did you get your books to pin on the side. Do you use blogspot or wordpress, or is this your regular domain site? Inquiring minds want to know.

Betsy, I use a blogger site. I put everything I want to go to Pinterest onto my own blog first then I pin those to Pinterest from my blog. It doesn't matter where on my own pin boards they go, because they all go onto the page my friends can look at and also to the Everything board in Pinterest.
