Pinterest board 2

Pinterest is a social media platform. That said, as you probably already know, it is very, very different from anything else out there. The whole point of it is to be visual and artistic. It is more of a place to get ideas and make recommendations for products, recipes and more than a place to chat with others.

Using Pinterest for a wedding business is a bit complicated. They are still working on how to keep people from sharing content that they don’t have rights to and much more according to the article by Christine Lagorio. One of the easiest ways to help this is to watermark every single item you post and include a link to your website or product in the description (which is shared each time someone pins it).

So what can you do with Pinterest to make it work for your wedding business? You can have a board showing weddings you’ve done, use it to show your products, even create boards which show ideas for planning a wedding, color schemes and more. The question is: are you using Pinterest and if so how is it working, and if not, what are your reasons for staying away from using the platform?

  1. For me, its a very engaging experience. You get to know whats in trend, whats other professionals are pinning from wedding industry, what would be brides are pinning. And you can always pin what you want as well on your separate board. It also works when I share the board with bride so that she can pin whats she likes and asks my inputs on them.

  2. Too complicated; show me, I’m from Missouri, so help me. Although I have some pretty good computer skills, and I can write HTML code if I have to for my website, on this … I need the step-by-step.

      If you can write HTML, you can definitely do this.

    I’ve been using Pinterest and have found it to be very social and my photography sales have increased. I’ve learned to showcase my work while also promoting others and just sharing things in general. I do watermark all my images before posting. Here is my page: https://pinterest.com/khoncepts/ stop by and visit :roll:

    I would really love to get into using Pinterest and welcome it as it sounds a great visual platform for a photography business to be involved with. However my hear does sink at the prospect of signing up for and setting up yet another social medis platform after trying to keep up with Facebook, Twitter, blogging, etc etc for a small business this really takes some doing!!

      I feel for you, Andrew. I’ve been resisting Pinterest for a while, but I can do it no longer.

      It’s a powerful tool for leveraging the images brides love, which makes it a no brainer for photographers.

      There’s always so much to do and so little time. That’s where assistants come in handy! :-)
