Pinterest & Something to Uplift Your Spirits
Posted: Monday, August 05, 2019 2:41:21 PM
We always concern ourselves with how much traffic our own pins get, but have you ever looked for your products that others may have pinned? After stumbling across one of my own products pinned by someone else, I did some Pinterest searching last night using keyword strings that appear in my product titles and sometimes adding zazzle if still not specific enough - ["exact phrase" + Zazzle] - and was really surprised and happy to find a bunch of my products that I personally have never pinned floating around out there. The majority were on what I could tell were affiliate boards - all Zazzle products (and I recognized some names from the forum here so thankyou all who have pinned my stuff) but many were also found on general home decor/style/design boards. It's not something I ever thought about before but it was really a boost to my spirits to find my stuff being pinned by others, not to mention interesting to see what kind of boards they were on. So if you are feeling down or disheartened about your efforts here, search for your own products pinned by others for a mental boost.

Also - seeing what kinds of boards they are on gives ideas for tags. For example, various products of mine using the same design kept turning up on a board the person had titled "Confetti". Huh! That's not a keyword I had thought to use in my tags. And one of my designs that I consider mostly tie-dye turned up on several Fractal boards. Good to know!

Good idea to do research like this. You learned a lot from just being curious. Good for you.
