The biggest issue people face when using Pinterest in their marketing is having content to create Pins for.
Of course you can Pin the same thing over and over again (as long as you create a new image for it, change up the description, etc.), but to really get traffic from Pinterest you need fresh new content on an on going basis.
But who has time for that?
You do. 🙂
When you create “fast content”!
By creating “fast content” you can fill your Pinterest profile with original Pins that link to your squeeze pages, sales pages, blog posts, etc.
Here are 9 quick Pin ideas.
1. Current Blog Posts – I’m starting this off with the obvious. Your own content. You can create a few new Pin images per piece of content you have and have a ton of new Pins for Pinterest.
For example… I currently have 13 blog posts here. I could create 2 Pin images for each blog post and have 26 Pins I could add to Pinterest this month. Now that’s what I call “fast content”.
Want to really save some time? Hire someone over at Fiverr to create the Pins for you. Send them the links to your blog posts, and tell them to create 2 Pins for each of them. Of course you’ll have to give them direction on design, but this will save you a ton of time.
2. Promotion Quotes – I call these “promotional quotes” because you simply take a quote you find related to your niche, and make a “promotional quote” out of it and you can link it to anything you want. You could even do this daily and have a 30 new Pins each month all linking to something of yours. This is great “fast content” idea to use to have at least ONE thing of YOURS you can Pin every day.
Here’s a great example https://www.pinterest.com/pin/628041110516488719
Notice I have a nice clean design, great quote, and then at the bottom a call to action to signup for my challenge. How many things can you do this with?
3. Infographics – Infographics are HOT on Pinterest and you should be creating your own to get traffic to your own stuff. Canva has a ton of templates you can use to create your own infographic or again HIRE someone to do it, so this becomes a “super fast content” tactic!
4. Q&A Posts – What questions do you get asked or are asked the most in your niche? Take one, answer it, create a post about it, and then post it to your blog. Create a Pin and Pin it on Pinterest. Quick and easy! You should be able to create this in just a few minutes. Just ONE question per post is all you need.
5. What Are You Doing? – It’s the weekend or just a normal weekday. What are you doing that’s related to your niche? This could basically be a couple of photos with a few sentences about each photo. Post it up to your blog, and Pin it! You’re done…
6. Got Tips? – Can you name 3 or 5 tips related to your niche? Make a blog post with those 3-5 tips. This again should only take you a few minutes. Spice your post up with a few images, and you’ve got yourself a fast piece of content!
7. Resources – What are the best resources related to your niche? List them out, write a sentence or two about them, and boom!, you have a piece of content that’s ready to post to your blog and Pin on Pinterest.
Have I said Pin on/to Pinterest enough yet? 🙂 I’m going to say it about two more times, so get ready. 🙂
8. Top Content – Take a look at your stats. Find the content that got the most traffic or shares or likes or comments or whatever. For example like your top 5. Write a few sentences about why you think each did well, and once again… BOOM! You have a piece of content. Now post it and… Make a Pin on Pinterest. 🙂
I’m only going to say it one more time. Here we go…
9. Mood boards – Mood boards are hot right now and it’s pretty easy to create one related to your niche. Not to mention it’s super fast to do it. Create your own mood board image and use it as a Pin on Pinterest and link it to something of yours that you want to get traffic to.
That’s 9… NINE… different things you can create FAST to have content TODAY so you can Pin it to Pinterest all month long.
Imagine if you sat down write now and used ALL of these examples and created 3 Pins to use to Pin to Pinterest.
Ooops… I lied. I said Pin on Pinterest AGAIN. Just a few more times, and then I promise I’m done. 🙂
If you had 3 Pins for a current blog post.
If you had 3 promotional quotes.
If you had 3 infographics.
If you had 3 Pins for your Q&A post.
If you had 3 Pins for your What Are You Doing? post.
If you had 3 Pins for your Tips post.
If you had 3 Pins for your Resources post.
If you had 3 Pins for your Top Content post.
If you had 3 mood board images.
That’s 27 Pins for Pinterest and you created it all in a matter of just a couple of hours. If you outsource the Pin creation and the other image creation you’ll save even more time.
Okay so there you have it. A quick and easy way to create “fast content” and have about a month of Pins you can Pin on Pinterest (last time I’ll say it)!
