Julie Greenham / Tara Reid

“Pinterest is not a social platform, it’s a search engine. So, you don’t have to engage with people, and you don’t have to always be connecting and commenting.” 

— Tara Reid

Many marketing methods are overwhelming, stressful, or even terrifying for introverts. Facebook Lives? Instagram Reels? Networking? Putting yourself out there?

Introvert coach (and fellow introvert) Tara Reid gets it.

An online entrepreneur and business owner since 2007, she’s spent the last few years honing in on one aspect of marketing that is absolutely ideal for introverted business owners.

Pinterest.

Why is Pinterest so great for introverts? It’s a search engine, rather than a social platform. So it’s less about building connections and engaging with followers than it is about sharing great content and having your content shared by them.

And Pinterest is a smart place for your content to live — posts on Pinterest have a shelf life of a year or longer, if the content is good enough. Compare that to Instagram, where posts will show up on timelines for 5 hours, at most!

The platform can be used to generate sales, drive traffic to your blog or website, or get people to sign up to your email list, depending on the type of business and your goals. All you need are a few tips and tricks to optimize your content — and Tara is here to help you pin with confidence!

In‌ ‌this‌ ‌episode of the Quiet Powerhouse podcast,‌ ‌you’ll discover:‌

  • Common mistakes most people make when beginning to market on Pinterest
  • The perfect original content v. re-pin ratio (and how not to get flagged as a spammer)!
  • One tool that will simplify your entire Pinterest process — and the social bonuses of signing up!

“If it takes off, a pin can be at the top of search results and getting you traffic or leads for months or years down the line.”

—  Tara Reid
