Writers and Pinterest
Today I am featuring an article on how authors can build a platform using Pinterest.
1. Feature your books, along with other things.
No doubt you’ll want to have a board that features your own books. But don’t have only your own books. Add other boards so that you’re not perceived as using Pinterest strictly for self-promotion, which isn’t its stated purpose.
2. Build some boards of other books.
You might have them separated by genre; you might separate out fiction and non-fiction; maybe you want to have a special board with books written by your friends. The point is, share the love!
If you pin a book cover, pin it from the buy page or a page where it’s reviewed. Make sure the pins of your own books link back to the page of your website/blog that includes “buy” buttons.
