Breakout Session:

Leveraging Pinterest to Find and Grow Your Audience

With 175 million users, Pinterest is one of the largest online platforms. 87% of its users purchase products after searching the site*, but many authors and speakers have struggled to leverage it to its full potential.

This workshop will equip you with tools to not only build a consistent presence on Pinterest, but to generate and drive more traffic to your website…and ultimately your books and speaking ministry. You’ll learn the following:

  • Elements you need on your website to best leverage the power of Pinterest
  • How to structure your Pinterest boards to communicate your message in a consistent and “sticky” way
  • Components of an effective Pin and how to create them
  • Weekly practices and Pinning strategies to build viewership and followers

*Note: While anyone can attend this workshop, those who already have a website and basic knowledge of Pinterest will benefit the most.
