Pinterest for Artist Business Owners by Kareismatic

Everyone -- bloggers, visual artists, photographers, chefs, designers, creative agencies, retailers, and startups -- are realizing the potential of promoting their brands, building communities, and ultimately driving sales through Pinterest.

Bring your laptop or tablet and I will show how you can use Pinterest to strengthen your brand including how to utilize the power of your pinboard to create a strong brand “story” and promote your brand lifestyle and to reach new audiences. You will learn the dos and don’ts of pinning, uncover new avenues to build your social media presence and better your business. This is a hands on training that will improving your business’ Pinterest identity as we do live “pinning” work in a brainstorm session.

You’ll learn how to:

· Utilize the power of your pinboard to create a strong brand “story” and promote your brand

· Set up proper boards with searchable tiles and descriptions

· Identify and clearly articulate who your target audience is in and find your Pinterest community

· Source “pin-worthy” and “repinnable” imagery

· Find Pinterest business partners and groups

· Write the copy that enhances your imagery and story

You’ll learn all these skills by creating, perfecting, and managing your own Pinterest pinboard. We’ll work collaboratively to give each other feedback and suggestions throughout the class.
