Make the New Pinterest Changes Work for You

I recieved some great feedback form a couple of listeners about how much they enjoyed episode #7 where I went over some of the basics about getting started on Pinterest.

Since there have been many changes to Pinterest lately, this is the perfect opportunity ro record another solo episode about how you can maximize the recent changes for using Pinterest for your business.

Some of the topics covered include:

  • Introducing Rich Pins
  • Double pin warning
  • Integration of Pinterest into brands iOS apps
  • Pinterest’s mobile app changes (new features)
  • How tall images such as infographics now function


Rich pins – allow users to see more information about some pins when they are clicked on.

  • Recipe pins give information about ingredients, number of servings and category of recipe.
  • Movie pins tell you the rating and cast information.

On a different topic, this podcast episode was recorded the day after the massive tornado hit Moore, Oklahoma. I spent most of my childhood in Oklahoma and seeing such a large part of Moore destroyed is absolutely heartbreaking. A high school classmate of mine, his wife and 4 kids were fortunate enough to escape with their life but lost their home and everything they owned.

Please consider donating something to help the victims who have lost so much. Here is a list of a few organizations that are working hard to help the people of Moore recover.


Oklahoma City Tornado Recovery Fund and Community Emergency Fund

Feed the Children ($10 donation by texting the word DISASTER to 80888)

Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma ($10 donation by texting the word FOOD to 32333)

American Red Cross

The United Way of Central Oklahoma
