If you are a regular here, you know just how much I love Pinterest. It is one of my favorite social media platforms and also best business resource when it comes to Organic Traffic to our offers. When I was building a Network marketing Offer. It was awesome for that as well. So today I share with you how you can use Pinterest for network marketing success.
Let’s get this clear! Pinterest is a Social Search engine and Visual Marketing tool!
It is accessible from your PC and mobile gadgets, giving you an incredibly wide audience. According to many recent social media studies, Pinterest shows the most ‘year-by-year growth’ out of all social networks with the longest reach as well!
Pinterest brings people together through photo-sharing, which is great for many types of businesses esp. Foodies, Travel, DIY, but how about a Network Marketing business I hear you ask?
First, let’s look at the basics:
| Always upload a professional front facing clear photo of YOU. Your Face represents and is your brand!|
Link your other social media profiles like Facebook, Twitter, YouTube etc to your Pinterest and invite your followers on there to Follow you on Pinterest as well. Its the fastest proven way to get your 1st 100+ Followers.
Name your boards and pins appropriately. Use Keywords or phases for that! This way people can find your boards and pins through Pinterest search and other search engines!
Paint a picture of your Network Marketing business and what’s possible – The Promised land!
Keep your pins varied, don’t just promote your products and business, share your hobbies, interest, inspiration, travel, lifestyle, your YouTube videos, books you like to read. Share some other generic things you use, then also explain why you use a specific product, compared to your Network Marketing product.
Always pointing people to your other social platforms so people can connect and of course you build that relationship deeper – the Know, Like, Trust factor!
Make sure you add links to pins related to your business to make it easy for people to visit your website…This won’t make sense if you don’t have a website or blog. YET for those of you doing FB Lives and Audios, you are creating Value content! You can actually link to that training you are giving, the value you are putting out and so people get to see that you are someone of value, a giver, someone they want to connect with, learn from and buy from/join your team.
Now, Let’s get this clear guys: Network Marketing, isn’t only about enrolling people to make your commission. It’s about truly helping people solve a specific problem or Fulfill a desire and also working with like-minded individuals to build wealth for the self.
For the above specific reason Pinterest works as a powerful marketing tool for your MLM and Network Marketing business!Network Marketing, isn't only about enrolling people to make your commission.
How to Use Pinterest for Network Marketing
How exactly does Pinterest work for MLM Network Marketing businesses?
To understand that, here’s something you should know: successful social media marketing revolves around Intentionally: Sharing your lifestyle, giving value, branding you, engaging on the social network with your intended tribe!
When it comes to Pinterest, balancing the above elements is even more easy as you simply create a relevant board and Pin related content! “Virtual Filing cabinet baby!”
Okay, how else can you use Pinterest to give your Network Marketing business a much-needed boost?
?? Promote your MLM blog and/or company replicated website.
Pinterest doesn’t block or say no to your links as long as you don’t become a spammer.
Create Pin Images in Canva, pic-monkey or whatever image editing resource you prefer. Also create various short descriptions of the benefits of your product/s or expected results.
Pin your images having added the right “alt tag” and add your company website, landing page or blog.
Each pin image that you post on a related board should have an associated description and hashtag e.g.
#networkmarketing #mlmtips #mlm_leads #leadgenerationtips #mlmtraining #inspiration, #networkmarketingsuccess #networkmarketingtips etc.
When someone searches on pinterest, with such terms, or similar, your pins will show up as well.
Also, other Pinners will start ‘Pinning/saving’ your images to their boards! This means, they share to their followers and the domino effect starts! For you the website owner it also creates a VALUE backlink for your website = Ranking, ding ding! ? ?
You can even create a themed board for your Pins, displaying your consistently updated photos. Remember to pin regularly and consistently, these same pins and related content can and will get pinned by interested visitors. More leads, and more sales!Each picture that you pin on a Board should have an associated description!
?? PIN DAILY: Engage, Inspire and Entertain Your Followers.
When it comes to Pinterest, the more you pin the better. Unlike facebook you can pin 40+ times a day. Of course, you automate the process. I use and recommend a resource called Tailwind, Open your free account here! and Get started automating your Pinning efforts!

When people start to see the value, fun and good stuff you pin, they’ll come for more. They will also Share aka Save your content for either future reference or Sharing with their team, tribe, friends or family.
They will keep pinning your images and content to their boards and followers, if you keep them updated and engaged.
Eventually, they’ll become inspired enough to share with friends and family. Sometimes, you can introduce product incentives and/or offers with your photos, encouraging people to take advantage through your Pinterest content only.When people start to see the value, fun and good stuff you pin, they'll come for more.
?? Pinterest for Network Marketing – Take people on a journey.
Share your Story, Or Tell a story, show you are Human and vulnerable, yet Strong!

Share your challenges, your wins…
Start pinning photos of your lifestyle and interests, placing them into boards that correlate with your personal and business interests. Once people see these and what you’re passionate about, they’ll be drawn to what you have to offer as well.
People like seeing the face behind the brand they like. That’s something you must be ready to do if you’re building your network marketing business with Pinterest or any other social platform!
