Pinterest for Authors Article at IndieReCon 2015

What is IndieReCon?

IndieReCon is an online conference by authors for authors. It ran around the clock for nearly 3 days straight, and consisted of Live Events, Pre-recorded Videos and Blog post.

I was on the speaker schedule for IndieReCon 2015, and opted for the easiest option and created a visually extensive blog post about about authors could use Pinterest for their author brand.

Here’s some of the feedback about my Pinterest for Authors article:

Pinterest can be there every step of the way.

Here’s 7 strategies for creating content to draw your readers in:


7 Pinterest Strategies for Authors

All your Pinterest activities can fit into one of these 7 strategies, and by segmenting your activity into one of these groups, it will help you to focus your energies in the area that will benefit you the most.

In my article I provide a summary of different pinning options based on these 7 Pinterest strategies, and would love to hear from you about your Pinterest activity and successes.
