How To Encourage Pinterest Shares and Pinterest User Back To Your Blog

Pinterest is a big part of a lot of fashion brands social content strategies. Whilst I’m leaning away from Pinterest and onto Polyvore, the advice below should be useful for those brands that have a WordPress blog on their site or are using a WordPress as their site.

Adding ‘Pin It’ buttons to your products and campaign images will help the Pinterest community use and share your content. Whilst at the same time bring Pinterest users back to your website. A win win situation.

Style Me Pretty executes this quite well and this can be seen below.

Here are some of the cool features for this plugin;

  • Can choose between 30 different Pin It logos or if you don’t like what’s on offer you can add your own custom logo.
  • Can make the Pin It button sticky, which will show on all images not just when the user hovers over it.
  • Add “Pin It” buttons on image hover (in any corner).
  • Add a “Pin It” button under each image.
  • Option to pin featured images.
  • Show or hide on custom post types.
  • Tested for compatibility with many major WordPress themes and plugins.

I think this is a great simple plug in that all brands should consider using in their WordPress blogs.
