And… well… everyone loves jewelry, from fashionistas looking for their next accessory staple to a thoughtful child looking for a birthday gift for mom, your customers are on Pinterest, and it`s vital that you reach them.   Here are three simple steps that you can take today to ensure that customers are seeing your pins:  

Enable and Verify Rich Pins

  One of the most powerful tools available to marketers on Pinterest is the option to create Rich Pins. Rich Pins are pins that provide users with more information without them having to click on the pin itself. Currently, there are six kinds of rich pins: apps, movies, recipes, articles, products and places. Depending on which kind of pin you create, different information will be displayed.   For instance, recipe pins show ingredients, instructions, and serving suggestions right in the body of the pin. But the most important Rich Pin for retailers to know about is the product pin. Product pins display price and where the item can be purchased. So how can you get these Rich Pins?   flowers   The information displayed on Rich Pins is called metadata, which is the underlying description/summary of content on your website that is displayed on the back end. And the addition of metadata is the first step to getting rich pins. The specific steps that you need to take to add metadata to your website varies by platform, so be sure to do a search for "Adding Metadata to {Website Host}."   Once your metadata is added, it`s time to apply for Rich Pins. Take the URL of a page on your website and enter it into Pinterest`s validator. You`ll have the chance to fix and errors in your metadata before you submit your application. Pinterest will let you know what you`re approved!
