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!

Growing your following on social media platforms can sometimes be a frustrating process.

As a creative entrepreneur there is nothing more important than brand identity to differentiate yourself from the thousands of other bloggers, jewellery makers, bakers or knitters out there. And in the current world we live in attention spans have become close to a few seconds long. This is why more and more brands, companies and even journalistic outlets have switched to image oriented online-marketing, the same online-space that most creative entrepreneurs function in. This begs the question again, how to differentiate yourself from the rest? How to make you the “go-to,” the trusted voice, the brand that someone thinks first of when they think of your niche?

there are some social media platforms that will benefit Creative Entrepreneurs little more over others. The nature of the work produced by many Creative Entrepreneurs - such as Etsy shop owners, wedding photographers, graphic designers,bloggers etc. - much of it is quite visual.
