Pinterest. One of the goals that we have is to get better at posting our own work through Pinterest. Why have a Pinterest for our own company if we are not going to share our own work>
We ask people to create mood boards all the time for their engagement photography or for their wedding photography and they get images from other places that are on Pinterest, but our latest work is not always up on there for people to search through. We are going to begin to process all our stuff on there in order to reach that market. We need to be in that market.
The Pinterest world is big and there are a lot of brides that are planning their wedding through there. We need to get into that part of the world. At first we had just dropped in images in there without writing a description on them. Without a description, they would never be found unless they personally went onto our page. It is just like SEO for Pinterest. We have to add keywords for things to be found on there.
Just like all avenues of social media, it seems that you have to be active in the community in order to get any attention. We don't have it all figured out yet on Pinterest, but we will be working our page to make it better and to get it out to everyone. The world of pinterest seems to important in the wedding world and we cannot miss out on that opportunity. We will be building up our Pinterest page as a way to market and believe that it will be a smart move for us. We will find out.
As far as our clinets, we love to see them go through pinterest and adding boards on their page. We look through those boards to get an inspiration on what they like. When we ask clients to create a mood board, we ask them to pin photos on their board and to also put a note on what it is in the image that they like. Sometimes they like the background. Sometimes they like the pose. Sometimes they like the light. There are a number of things that they could like from the photo and we just want to see exactly what they were looking at when they hit the pin button. Pinterest is a powerful tool in the wedding world and we look to get more involved with it.
