Health Activists are great at keeping up with the latest social networks that could possibly benefit their communities – and seem to really love trying new ways to connect. We do, too! That’s why we’ve created our own WEGO Health Pinterest account with a handful of boards to collect inspiration, tips, and awareness ideas for Health Activists and our team. We also know how challenging it can be to get started – so we’ve compiled some tips for starting out on Pinterest as a Health Activist to help you make the most of this exciting new platform as an online health leader.
Here are just a few of the tips from our April Coaching Session:
- If you create video blogs – upload them to Youtube and Pin them. Your followers can watch the videos from the Pin – without even leaving Pinterest.
- Create a board for people in your health community that you recommend others follow. Think of it as a visual Blog Roll or a list of awesome people you admire.
- Add hashtags to your posts – so people will be able to find them when they search.
- Use the comment section to link to your sites where appropriate. Don’t over-self-promote but it is ok to share your work where it fits.
