Pinterest Group Boards Tip 2: Bringing in the Sales Posted on 07 May 13:43 , 0 comments

With Over 570,000 views monthly on my Pinterest profile, and just One of my Wedding Sets Pinned over 1300 times in the last 30 days, Pinterest is still by far the best place to be spending your time learning about how to utilize this free advertising tool whether you have a Etsy shop or your own website. 

One of my best Pinterest tips would be to join group boards, especially if you haven’t built up a large Pinterest following yet. 

Some group boards have thousands of followers and the group board can be found among every pinners personal boards. It’s a fairly easy way to get a large exposure with the least effort.

You can ask for an invitation to group boards (the guidelines are often listed in the board description) or find a Pinterest directory.

A great tool for this is Pin Groupie which can help you find relevant and active boards. You can search PinGroupie.com for Pinterest Boards that you can join as a Collaborator. This way you can spread your pins even wider, by leveraging audiences you had no access to before.

Before long your pin will have thousands of views and will be pinned hundreds of times! This will successfully lead to sales and requests from customers.

Pinterest The Best Free Advertising Tool Posted on 02 Apr 01:25 , 0 comments

Pinterest has been an invaluable tool to Our Etsy Shop and Small Business as Free advertising it has yielded higher returns than any paid advertising that I have used over the last 4 years in Business. Pinning our items a few times a week, has been well worth it I get over 250,000 views a month, and have had many direct sales from Pinterest. If you do not have a Pinterest account it is easy to set up or join with your Facebook account. If you do have an account please join us. 

Here is an example of a pin that has generated over $2100 in sales on Etsy It has been re-pinned over 4000 times and Favorited over 584 times at the last count. Now these are all direct sales of the actual bouquet. This does not include customers that have contacted me from the pin and asked me to make a custom set from this listing or additional items, this is one of our top selling bouquets.  It is easy to pin your Etsy listings directly to the right of your listing you will see the Pinterest button, or if you have the app on your phone even better. You always want to Pin from your listing so it leads directly back to your item, this is called a Rich Pin. As soon as I update a listing, or create a new listing I always pin it to one of my Pinterest boards even if it has been pinned before. 

Another way to assist your sales, and also help others is joining Pinterest Group Boards. If you would like to be added as a Collaborator on some of Our Group Boards you need to Follow us on Pinterest and Email Us DesignTeam@SilkFlowersByJean.com that you would like to be added to a group board. We have over 225 Boards from Weddings, Design, Etsy Gifts Ideas, Art, & Home Decor. I will then send you an invitation to one of Our Group Boards. 


You can also Join Our New Etsy Promotion Facebook Group page All Etsians, Crafters, Artisans, or Entrepreneurs are Welcome share all of your links and we will follow you, coming soon lots of tips of how I grew my Etsy shop to making over $50000 in sales per year. Additionally I will share my tips for my Online sales from my Shopify Website. My business revenue is 100% from online sales generated from Etsy, and my Websites. I am here to tell you it can be done. I am living, breathing, proof. :)

Thank you so much, and Happy Pinning everyone!
