10 Pinterest Mavens Every Marketer Should Follow
If you spend time marketing your business, making connections with quality Pinterest users is an excellent way to create synergistic relationships and a network of perfectly curated content.

I follow business professionals who have developed an original style, have something unique to share, and pin content that I know will be of interest to my followers. It’s a win-win in my opinion. I like, share and re-pin their content and in turn, my hope is that they will do the same.

While the list below only scratches the surface of my favorite pinners, it is a group of marketer’s who share ridiculously fantastic content day-in and day-out! Plus, as a bonus, there’s a few tips and tools thrown in to help you take your pinning to a whole new level!

10 Pinterest Marketers to Follow

  1. Ching Ya

Ching Ya is a self-proclaimed social media addict, freelancer and enthusiastic blogger who writes fabulous articles surrounding social media marketing.

She has a wonderful way of taking the most complex social media task and turning it into an easy to absorb topic. As a pinner, her boards are a social media goldmine offering tips, tools, tricks and how-to’s surrounding anything and everything social media and online marketing.

Ching Ya’s Tip:

You must learn and know about your audience. Starting a new social network is easy, but to gain maximum results from it you need to know what to provide and how to attract your audience to engage (repin, like) for brand visibility.

Make use of Pinterest’s ‘Analytics’ option to find out how your pins are performed and if you can improve the content or design of your pins (colors, dimensions etc) to suit your audience better.

  2. Donna Moritz

Donna is the founder of Socially Sorted, a social media & visual marketing agency in sunny Australia. She actively pins social media Infographics, her favorite apps, brand building tips and goodies from top social blogs across the web.

She’s also a blogger, putting together share-worthy images to maximizes her time spent on Pinterest. She is an excellent example of how to use Infographics to mesh blogging and Pinterest into one powerful marketing tool!

Donna’s Tip:

The way that content is shared online is changing dramatically. Although it is important for marketers and brands to consider the content they are sharing to Pinterest (brand generated content) it is actually the “organic” content (images being shared organically from websites by consumers) that is growing exponentially.

Up to 70-85% of all content shared from product-based businesses is organic. This means that consumers are sharing your content even regardless of whether you have a business page on Pinterest or not. Brands need to look at not only what they are putting out there, but also how to optimize both images and their website to allow sharing to happen easily.

  • Is there at least one great “pinnable” image on each web page?
  • Are they encouraging their community to share?
  • Do they have the PinIt button on images? Do a ‘test run’ of your website and view it how the consumer would view it. They are out there, wanting to share the things they love – make sure you are ready to help them!

  8. Louise Myers

Louise and I first met as bloggers, but I quickly became a fan of hers on Pinterest after seeing the quality social media and marketing goodies she shares.

With everything from blogging tips to awesome Infographics, Louise offers a little something for any marketer, no matter the industry.

Louise’s Tip:

Get creative with shapes! Cut-out shapes stand out in the Pinterest newsfeed. Catching more eyes means getting more repins and followers!

Instead of square or rectangle, can you make a graphic with a rounded or offbeat shape? If showing a product, try photo’ing it on a crisp white background so the item creates a graphic shape of its own. And be sure to add your company or website name to your images, so whatever happens to them, they’ll always lead the viewer back to YOU.

Copyright: Peg Fitzpatrick

Peg’s tagline tells you everything you need to know about her – Rockin’ a positive attitude • passionate about social media • writer • Google+ evangelist • and so much more. She is all of that in one amazingly powerful package!

Peg is also the amazing brain behind Guy Kawasaki’s social media marketing and actively pins incredible content for authors or anyone interested in publishing their own book.

Check out her boards “APE” and “APE Author Interviews” for tips and tools on the where and how behind self-publishing.

On top of that, she puts together beautiful graphics that are perfectly created for Pinterest. Read about how to craft a shareable image for both Pinterest and Google+!

Peg’s Tip and Tool:

Preplan your important brand boards since you can’t rearrange the individual pins on the boards yet. I’m hoping that Pinterest will change this. And, of course, as with all marketing, don’t pin only what you are marketing. Your Pinterest boards should appeal to your audience, not be a billboard.

And since Peg is one of the most giving women I know, she’s offered a tool tip as well:

PicMonkey is my top tool since the size of the photo is essential for getting your pins seen. I shoot for 600 pixels x 900 pixels.

  10. Stacy Zapar

Stacy is the CEO for Tenfold Social Training, a social media trainer for recruiters and talent acquisition teams. She is also one of the most genuine people I’ve met on social media. What you see online is exactly what you get offline. Spunky, savvy and always willing to lend a hand whenever and however she can.

Stacy pins everything from travel to style, social media and of course recruiting tips, but I think it’s her “Girl Power” board I love the most. This pin from her aptly titled board encompasses everything I love about Stacy!

  24. Rebekah – Since Pinterest is my favorite social media, I so appreciate the info on this blog. Do you know any real estate agents actually getting leads from Pinterest? If so, can you share their account with me? I am not a big facebook person – in fact I don’t care for it at all. I’m ok with Twitter and am a new blogger. I just need to know how they all connect together. Any words of wisdom from you is appreciated. Thanks again.

  25. Rebekah you always do so a great job with your social media presentations! There are so many people who could learn a ton from you just by reading your blog. I always enjoy reading your content.

  30. This is a super list of great Pinterest market. I have found that larger images make better pins. When second your new photo, I found uploading the picture manually is best. If you use the social sharing options the photo is smaller. Don’t forget hashtags on your pins. Thank you sharing.

  31. Pinterest has been a great site to driving new business to some of my sites and it’s important to make connections on it to expand your network.

  32. I got my start understanding social media marketing a few years ago when I became a fan of Keri’s. Given my love for using Pinterest to market my online product, I will look at all the other wonderful women you highlighted & start applying their tips.

    • Keri is an amazing example isn’t she Roslyn? I think you’ll love every one of these ladies listed given your love of social media, Pinterest and the content Keri is sharing!

  33. A goldmine of information for me, since I’m in early stages of branding myself and just learning Pinterest. Thanks for this incredibly informative and useful post.

  35. What wonderful tips, I am definitely going to incorporate many of these. I have been “stalking” Keri’s posts for quite some time but its nice to have others I can learn from as I build my brand. Thanks ladies, I appreciate all the good info

  36. Hi Rebekah!

    You have some great people on this post! Each tip is a wonderful way to use Pinterest correctly. My favorite one is Donna Moritz when she says “The way that content is shared online is changing dramatically.”

    Online content is like light speed. When taken into consideration, we have to keep ourselves updated on just about everything. Now this is difficult to do when you are working solo, but this one tip from Donna had caught my eye because it proves that we have to keep up with those changes.

    I know a few of these wonderful peeps and look forward to check out the rest.

    Thanks again!
