New Pinterest Group Board Where Artists Include Retail Price On Image Pins of Their Art

blogck-7-hottest-pinterest-tips-480

 

I created a new Pinterest board this morning, Art Direct From Artists, where artists may pin images of their available art with retail price on each image. For artists who pin their art images to this new Pinterest group art board, I will re-pin your images to other appropriate Pinterest boards, plus every time I pin or re-pin your art image it will appear in my Twitter feed. I’ve had several top art galleries favorite Pinterest images in my Twitter feed for @Transmediartist. Plus, there is a new Pinterest option, a *Send Board* button at the top of the board. Once the board has artwork with retail prices I will work to find interior designers and other art buyers to send the board to. As creator of this group board I have curatorial options to remove any images that do not follow the board guidelines, such as lacking retail price or poor image quality.

If you’d like to add your art to the new Art Direct From Artists Pinterest Board simply let me know your Pinterest user name in a comment here. Once I add your user name to the group board you will receive an invitation via Pinterest. Accept, read the short group tips and instructions and add your art images. Add as many as you wish. (UPDATE: Please add Marie Kazalia on Pinterest to make it easy to join this group broad.)

Be sure to include your retail price on your Pinterest Pins of your art images!

While Social Media Examiner articles are not specifically about marketing fine art, their recent article 7 Pinterest Marketing Tips to Improve Visibility really hit the nail on the head for art marketing on Pinterest.

Social Media Examiner‘s #1 tip for using Pinterest–

#1: Include Price Tags

Pinterest users aren’t just looking for creative inspiration on the network. They’re also ready to buy.

Make sure you include a price tag in the pins you create or repin. After all, Pinterest drives more referral traffic than Google+, YouTube, and LinkedIn combined. More importantly, Pinterest pins with prices get 36 percent more likes than those without.

Providing a bit of general inspiration is great, but as a business person and a marketer you ultimately want to drive traffic to your site and inspire a purchase as well.

    • Hi K.

      I found you on Pinterest as K Henderson Art http://www.pinterest.com/khendersonart/ and also when I searched you on Pinterest your came up as *K Henderson* (perhaps Pinterest abbreviates?) while I noticed the full *K Henderson Fine Art* as the title of your main board area. I tried adding all three variations to the board but you did not appear. It’s automated and when I type in your name I should get your account to click on to invite.
      So, try following me first, http://www.pinterest.com/MarieKazalia and that may fix the problem.

  3. Once again you amaze me, Marie. I would love to be included http://www.pinterest.com/annebevan I’ll have to re-send some of my images to be sure the price is included and I’d like to start putting better descriptions with the work. Marie, is it possible for a person to have two separate pinterest accounts? I’m asking because I do a second line of work under a different name. It is completely different from my fine art, very focused on marketing and selling.
    Thanks so much,
    Anne Bevan

      3. Since there varying are issues account to account on Pinterest, I recommend that you add a pin to the group board and then trying removing it as a test.

      Yes, I have just now sent you an invitation to the group board. Find it on your Pinterest account at upper right corner on Pinterest. Accept the invitation to add your pins.

      One artist asked how to add pins and link their website to the pin. That is done by clicking on the + on Pinterest at upper right. There you can upload jpeg images, or find the unique URL for each image on your blog or site and copy and paste that URL to link the image to your site. You can also pin images from your own site to the group board.

    • An absolute must / requirement is that you have a Retail Price on each and every art image that you pin to my group Pinterest board. If I have to spend time deleting pins that lack retail price and contact the artist repeatedly asking them to comply with this one simple detail then I will simply start removing artists!

      Sorry to get on your case from the start, but those several who don’t comply have caused extra work for me again this morning. SO I am thinking that I need to be harder from the very beginning.

      You will find your invitation to join the group board at the top right corner of you Pinterest page. Best Wishes!
