I’m re-booting my Pinterest boards that I started with my Etsy account and that are now under my Byrd Nash name. Find me here.
I’ll be continuing many of my witchy boards like: Enchanted Forest, Moon Magick, Magickal Cats, Magickal Canines, Tarot Cards, Magickal Home, and Tarot Cards. While adding some new – book and writing centric boards. Some of them can be shared with others so read on!
Here are some of my shared Pinterest boards. If you are interested in joining, drop me an email:
Book and Author Quotes – quote yourself and your books AND post other well-known quotes. My only request is that before pinning a quote please doublecheck that it is accurate! So many of these things are just made up!
Podcasts about Books and Writing – Whether you have your own podcast or just want to find new things to listen to, check this out!
Audio Book Favorites – I’ll be pinning my own choices right here and showcasing some of my own.
Book and Writing Humor – Just a place to share and laugh over this idea we can be a writer.
Here are some thoughts on using Pinterest for your books and writing:
⦿ Use quotes from your book or reviews to promote your book.
⦿ Use it to market your blog posts, projects, characters, and book cover reveals.
⦿ Realize you need to do more then just post buy-me pins. Re-pin other pins that would speak to your Ideal Reader. Are you a fantasy writer? Start a board on dragons.
⦿ Pins have a long life. I still get traffic to my home remodel blog from pins I put up 10 years ago! So no joke! That’s the great thing about Pinterest – it simply acts as a search engine.
⦿ Humor, jokes, and memes, are popular.
⦿ Quotes are popular. But please make sure the quote is a real one! So many of them are fake.
⦿ Images that use numbers in the title are popular (10 ways to get published, 20 of the best books to read this summer).
⦿ Give your image a clear CTA (call-to-action). What do they do with it? Read, buy, listen, make, enjoy?
⦿ If you join boards with others you still get traffic but don’t have to pin as often. It’s also a great place to find like-minded folks and gain followers.
⦿ A favorite attention getting size is 300×800 pixels as I’ve shown in this blog post.
Come check me out! If you’re on Pinterest just comment below on your own boards and I’ll come by and visit.
P.S. This is part of me re-doing my social media. I need to get it in shape so I have time to write but also have an outreach. You can find me also at:
