Ways To Use Pinterest For Your Etsy Shop

Even though I make jewelry, I like to wear stuff made by others and support them so I made a Pinterest board, Handmade Jewelry. As I'm going through some of the people I follow, I know some of them make jewelry and sell online. I click their profile and I don't see a board for their shop! Oh no!!! Why are they doing this?!?!

Pinterest
I love my Pinterest account more and more each day. This is a quick snapshot of my dashboard. I come here and I start to browse, which is what it think most people do. This is a missed opportunity if you are not including YOUR items on MY dashboard.  Even if I don't follow you, I may follow someone who does and they might pin something of yours that I may like.

I know you're worried about spamming and being annoying but believe me, you're not!  Sure I can easily visit your shop and pin an item directly but what if I don't know about your business? How am I suppose to find out about your wonderful work? I'm in Pinterest mode and I do not wish to leave the site just yet (anyone else get this way?)

If you have an Etsy shop, it's very easy to pin your item directly to your board without having to visit Pinterest.  Every time I list a new item, along with tweets and Facebook updates, I pin the item to my Jewelry board

Give the description some hashtags so you pop up in searches and pin away!
