So well, so I just want to take him in and say how incredible that was yesterday for you two for artful gentlemen to get this redesign and essentially just so many insights from everybody online. The artfully this and artfully that I absolutely loved. You went from a 30 40 people follow you on Pinterest to Did you check out this morning? Last time I checked, we had over 250 followers. Awesome. So that's just the power of the creative live audience. We are a big family, and we love that you reached out again. We love all the followers, new followers that we're getting on creativelive as well. We're excited to learn from Melanie about how to unlock the power of our own page. And so we've been having fun doing that as well. So obviously Pinterest dot com slash creative life. We only have about I think there's under 4000 maybe even still under 3000 followers there. Whereas, of course, our our Facebook page just hit 100,000. So we know that there are tons of you, more of you out there. So come on and follow us there. We appreciate that. All right, we have a new audience member. Tell us about yourself. My name is Alicia Golden, and I'm a commercial editorial and wardrobe stylist personal wardrobe stylist as well. You can find me at Alicia golden dot com. It's a lie s a j golden dot com. Um super excited to learn for Melanie. I've I've learned so much from her already. This is my first day on set, so I'm waiting for my ah ha moment. Well, and you are, you know, Melanie outside of creative lives. All right, Have you worked together or I I have known the family that she was very, very blessed to marry into known her for a number of years and consider her a great friend and a great mentor. She's constantly inspiring and teaching and learning and pushing you to grow more and more. And even though I'm here in San Francisco and she's in New York, it definitely I'm always seeing what Melanie is up to and what she's teaching. Also super excited. Well, thank you for mentioning the lovely family that she married into Devon Dunkin. Her husband is starting his own course here on creative life Tomorrow. That's gonna be three day course marks. You're gonna here a little bit from him later today as well, but really excited to continue the six days of Duncan learning. Go ahead. My name is Rachel Ralston. I am designer and branding strategist, and you can find me at Rachel Ralston dot com on Facebook. Rachel Olson design and on Twitter and Pinterest at Rachel Wilson I am really excited to have learned so much over the course of the days. I kind of mentioned this yesterday, but things have really felt like they've been clicking just in how all of the social media pieces work together. Um, and last night I launched I use what we learned here and launched a Pinterest contrast That is fantastic. Now, how are you going to go about promoting that contest? Cause that was the biggest take away from me was the fact that you can just put the contest on there and then you've got a market. The thing are you going to do two week? I know. Well, I I'm is two weeks, and it's just to get more followers not asking for people to pin a bunch of things. It's just asking for people to follow me, so it's really easy. Teoh, participate and and I'm already doing it on my other pieces of social media. And yeah, so all of you out there if you want to go participate in Rachel's contest, tell us again just dot com slash Rachel Ralston. Perfect. Alright, awesome. Let's see how many entries we can get today. I love it. Good morning. My name is Denise Birdsong, and I am the owner, principal photographer and creative director of modern love photography. You can find us at modern love photography dot com. Um oh, and my Pinterest account, which I'm working on. It's a mess. What exactly is Denise Birdsong? Dash Zavala need to figure out how to change that model. Do you think that that's a little bit confusing, right? So we've been working on that. I think my biggest, ah ha, is that I need to stop ignoring social media and pay a little bit more attention to it and create a plan that's workable because I can't do social media from 9 to 6 every day. I have clients to take care of, so I need to figure out a strategy to learn to fit this into my schedule and be consistent with all of it. Well, that's awesome. I think that absolutely resonates with so many people out there. That's what we've been hearing from them is essentially okay. Now I'm learning what to dio. Now I have to put into practice and do the work. So thank you for sharing everything that you have been windows over these past three days. Khalili way have online. And what are they saying? Lindy of people? Let's see, We have Margie Deep Atlanta Maggie High from Sweden. Ah, girl named Michael. Oh, gosh. It is just all abuzz here in the Czech rooms.

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.
