Pinterest Pin Board Ideas For Direct Selling

What is Pinterest and how can it help your direct selling business?

Pinterest is an online cork board where people post pictures and allow others to comment on and share those pictures. It sounds simple, right? It is, and it could be something that you use to help promote your business.

The key with Pinterest is to not over-saturate the board with your images.

Your goal is to get people so interested in your images that they contact you for more information. If you post too many images, they lose their effect.

You also do not want to over post. Often people post so many at one tiem that it becomes offensive.There is plenty of time and posting a few everyday on a consistent basis will get and keep people’s interest.

Pinterest For Satisfied Customers

Make it a point to give away surprise door prizes to your guests and then be sure to take pictures at the initial reaction of your guests at receiving their gifts. Nothing piques a potential client’s interest more than wondering what is making all of these other people so happy.

Dreams For Direct Selling

A significant amount of the pictures seen on Pinterest have to do with people’s dreams or goals. There are romantic pictures of couples kissing in the rain and pictures of scantily clad cowboys with six-pack abs. There are vacation dreams, business dreams and romantic dreams. You can promote your products by posting your dreams and aspirations for your business.

For example:

  • A tasteful picture of a couple involved in a sensual massage can be used to get people asking about your line of massage oils. Remember, if the picture is interesting enough, then people will ask about it.
  • A picture of kids playing in the beach may be appropriate for natural skin care products.
  • Food pictures are wildly popular as are home decorating, so a board with those types may be great at marketing your products.

Direct Selling Party Pictures

Fun is a key component of a direct selling party so a pin board on the FUN aspect would be good! Choose product displays with people having fun and take a lot of pictures of your guests looking at the displays and enjoying the information you are offering.

Show people laughing! If you post enough pictures of people enjoying themselves at your events, then you will develop a following of people that want to know what your company does and what is making people so happy.

Women Empower Women In Home Business

Your home business business is based, in part, on empowering women to take control of certain parts of their lives and maximize their experiences. Every once in a while, you should post or re-post an image that has a positive and strong statement about changing lives and empowering women. Potential clients may not understand what you are selling from these slogans, but they will be on your side.
