Define your target audience with these 5 easy steps

Running a business without a defined target audience is like setting up a stall in a crowded unlit room. You know there are people around, people that would be interested in what you have to offer but they can’t see you and you can’t see them. So you end up shoving your pamphlet and giving your spiel to people who don’t care what you’re about because, well, they can’t see you in the large crowd in a dark room.

Become a Pinterest Keywords BOSS

getting keywords right is so important on Pinterest. Not to mention, that keywords and keyword searches increase your rank on Pinterest. Meaning the  more people land on your pins and engage with them they more likely your pins will become the first few to show up--which is the optimum place to be in as those pins receive the most repins or clickthroughs.

There are particular places on Pinterest that you should be using keywords in order to show up in the in-Pinterest searches. But to be clear, keywords on Pinterest don’t yield literal search results. This, in a way, is a good thing because the likelihood of your pins showing up are higher as long as your keyword is in the same umbrella. For example if you search “toys for toddlers” your search will probably yield results like “homemade toys for toddlers,” “quiet time toys for children,” “best apps for toddlers,” “nursery must-haves,” “outdoor toys,” “toy organizational kits”..you get the point!
