How to Use Pinterest for Dull, Academic or Yucky Topics – Adventures in Visibility with Joan Stewart

Joan Stewart, The Publicity Hound

In this episode of Adventures in Visibility, Joan Stewart aka The Publicity Hound shares how you can get new followers and traffic to your blog from Pinterest, even if you don’t have a business that lends itself to sexy images.

In fact, you don’t need stunning photos or a sexy topic to attract followers on Pinterest.  Joan goes through the steps she uses to create images of helpful how-to tips, even for the most boring topics, using nothing more than PowerPoint, and then cross-promotes each tip to her blog, website, or a social media site.

Joan Stewart’s Pinterest board of free publicity tips has had the number 1 ranking on Google search for her primary keyword phrase for several months. She explains what she does, how she does it, and how you can too.

Publicity expert Joan Stewart, aka The Publicity Hound, works with business owners who want to use traditional and social media to establish their credibility, position themselves as experts, and build a loyal following.

    Wow, this was just so informative. Really great tips for ma as a tax and estate attorney. This was so thought provoking with so many great insights and tips. The 26 character limit was key as well as using more in the way of descriptions. Loved the image name tip and the other smaller tips such as fonts and hash tag usage, image sizes, use of power point, etc.
    Just awesomely informative.
