10 Pinterest Tips for Writers…

by Frances Caballo  on Social Media Just for Writers:

In today’s post, I want to share some of my best Pinterest Tips for Writers.

Whenever I feel beleaguered from reading email, blog posts, tweets, and Facebook updates, I sneak over to Pinterest and feast on the images.

Opening Pinterest is a well-deserved break from the blocks of text I normally read on blog posts, newsletters, and social media posts.

Don’t mistake me; Pinterest isn’t just a vacation for my eyes. It’s a powerful social media network that, research indicates, nearly rivals Facebook in terms of traffic referral.

I take time to use it professionally and value its power.

In fact, according to Shareaholic, Pinterest accounts for three times more traffic referral than Google+, Twitter, YouTube, Reddit, StumbleUpon, and LinkedIn all together. Wow!

If you thought Pinterest was for the DIY, beauty, and crafts aficionados, think again. Men are discovering Pinterest and there are numerous ways for writers to use Pinterest to market their books and connect with readers, prospective readers, and colleagues.

10 Quick Pinterest Tips for Writers

  1. Many writers also create boards of writing tips, things they’ve found useful and want to share with fellow writers. Example: I edit science fiction as well as write it, so I have a board called “Science for Fiction Writers” and another called “Writing: the technical stuff,” which is for the mechanics of writing such as grammar, punctuation, homophones, etc.

    I recommend staying AWAY from most of the group boards for writers to pin their own books, however. Many are essentially unmoderated (abandoned by the owners?) and contain a high percentage of bizarre/offensive spam.
