I am a wedding photographer looking for the optimum strategy to market my business.
I was wondering if someone can’t point me in the right direction for marketing a small local business like wedding photography.
First I built a business page and was just doing follow/unfollow but the. I started thinking about creating multiple accounts and repinning my photos from the business account to those accounts. The main goal is to drive local traffic to my site.
It’s not that simple to target people by their location.
What I would do in this case is search for local business on google, find their website, then check if they have Pinterest profiles. If they do, then get their usernames and follow their followers.
Setting up more accounts would also be good idea:
You should have one main business account that will follow/unfollow followers of business profiles in your region and pin your images from your website.
Other profiles that you’ll make should be real looking personal profiles, repin your pins and also follow followers of business profiles in your location.
Also, if you already have decent number of followers on Pinterest, setting up group board and inviting other businesses in your niche (located worldwide) to pin there. This way your group board will get more exposure, their followers will also be able to see it. If you do this, make sure you don’t invite direct competition (businesses in your region) to pin there.
So what I got from this was set up a business page(which I already have) set that page to follow/unfollow followers of local business. Or even local businesses that are in my niche like wedding venues, wedding dress shops, or even competition.
Then create a network of personal Pinterest accounts, maybe like 10?
Make those accounts to look real with personalized bios and all of that. Set those accounts to also follow/unfollow followers of niche accounts.
Create boards on those accounts within my niche like “wedding dresses”, “wedding ideas”, “wedding hair”, “wedding photography” and set those accounts to auto pin onto those boards from other niche boards including photos from my own business profile.
However, the network of your personal Pinterest accounts will have to look natural. You’ll have to add some more boards (different niches: food, travel etc), and you’ll have to repin pins of other users there in order to hide your real activity.
Otherwise, you could end up losing the accounts pretty fast.
Yes, local businesses, you want to reach local people right? Of course, include followers of your competition too.
These are the settings that I’m currently using. If you check, you’ll see there’s “Increase for 20 each day until it reaches 1000 max Follow per day”. When i was starting (brand new accounts) I used 300-400 per day max and increasing for 20 each day. You can use similar settings for Unfollow tool.
Don’t forget to add night mode for your accounts. Couple of hours when they won’t execute any operations.
Sorry for all the questions! I just have tep more!
Do you have any tips for creating a ton of email addresses? I’ve made a ton of fake names using fake name generator and then I was going to build all of the email accounts manually. But what do I do about phone verification?
Also will I need to buy proxies for this? Sorry for the noob stuff, I’m trying to learn as much as I can about this stuff!
You don’t really need to create email on proxy, but when you create account and get confirmation email from Pinterest, make sure you copy the confirmation URL (button URL from email) and paste it in Embedded browser that uses proxy used for account creation
Regarding account creation, I see you’re a little bit lazy when it comes to searching for answers on forum so here you go:
