Bonus Video With Purchase: Liking and Commenting

Now I want to show you some additional features and things that are on your page in relation to your pins. Now one of them is sending a pin. If you want to send a pin to someone, you just click this little button in the top right, and you can actually send directly to a Pinner or send directly to an email address simply by clicking that. And if you click that little comment, but in the top right, you can actually add a message to it. So not a real marketing strategy here, but just a way to engage in to do different things on the platform. Now let's talk about commenting. If I click this Pinterest logo at the top center, I'll be taken to my home. Page will be able to see all the different pins that people I follow are pinning now. It used to be able to comment directly on one of these pens about clicking anything, and you can still do that if someone has already commented. But most of the time, as you can see from this example, people do not comment a lot on Pinterest. But this does mea...

n that there is an opportunity for you to get added visibility in front of your audience by commenting or in front of other people's audiences by commenting so to comment on a pin. All you need to do is click the pin just like that, and when you scroll down, you will see that there is a field to add a comment so you could add something like This is beautiful. Any way to kind of create engagement, select comment? And now you'll see, When we go back to the home page, you will see my a link to my page, which is very cool, So someone could actually click this and be brought directly to my page. But also what's really neat is now that there has been a comment. If anyone else wants to comment, they can do so without having to click on the pin. So it's very neat to comment on pins to get other engagement with other accounts, but also for visibility because, for example, this particular pin, which was penned by on the Jewish this account I can click and see that she has over 7000 followers, which means her followers when they see her pin in their news feed. They will now also see my comment in my page and my profile image. So this is a great strategy. Commenting is a great way to get your account in front of a lot of other people on Pinterest, particularly have a great title for your page or really eye catching profile image. I will tell you that Pinterest is very sensitive to spamming, So if you do more than two or three comments in a row, they'll probably say, Hey, you know, you kind of pinned a lot of you commented a lot in the last few minutes, just take a little break and then you'll be able to comment mawr in a few more hours. But they won't let you just go in and comment on pins in a row. They'll think it's spam, so they're just trying to protect the user experience. But something else is liking. If you see this little heart right here, you can actually click this and you will like a pin. Now again, I don't see a big marketing purpose to this, but you'll notice when you do go to your profile. So if I was to click on my profile. There is a section at the top called Likes, and when you click here you will see a collection of all the pins that you have light. And this is simply a way. If you don't want to repent something and have it attached to your board, But you do want to save it and you do wanna have it on your profile, you just have to like it. It will be saved under the like section, So those were the main features that haven't been covered already in terms of liking and commenting on pins.

What an incredible amount of GREAT information that Melanie gives in this course! I couldn't watch it all live, but I saw enough in about 30 minutes to know I had to have it and so I bought it and it is worth EVERY PENNY! I can't wait to start utilizing all the great info to make my Pinterest boards work for me and have more fun pinning! Thank you CreativeLive and Melanie!


So glad I saw this and got it to keep. With just a few tweaks, I turned my non-active boards into active boards and quadrupled my followers in just a few days. This spilled over into site traffic AND major lead generation for my mailing list. Thanks for the inspiration, Melanie.
