Pinterest Basics for Authors

How Authors Can Use Pinterest for Book Marketing & Story Inspiration

Social media has changed the book marketing game. Now authors can reach their readers directly. But this also comes with a catch...

Other authors are out there too!

How can you get the advantage so you can connect with your ideal reader?

Pinterest has advantages that other platforms don't.

Not only can you use it to market your books, but you can also use Pinterest to help research and gather ideas during your writing process. And you can use the platform to make sales.

Pinterest isn't just a social media platform, it's also a search engine. Items on Pinterest often show up at the top of Google searches. It has over 100 million monthly users who use the platform to search for books, products and services.

In this course you'll learn:

4. Should you pay for advertising?
5. Tools to grow your following

*Market your books

*Research your ideas.

*Connect with readers.

*Sell your books.

Who is this course best for?
This course is the Pinterest BASICS. Which means it's best for authors who are NEW to Pinterest. If you're already an experienced Pinterest user, this will probably not be the course for you since we don't cover advanced strategies (such as promoted pins, advertising strategies or extensive use of hashtags).
Will I have to create a business account?
It's free to create a Pinterest business account, but you don't need one to use it as an author. However, having one will provide stats for engagement and make it easier to buy ads if you choose.
