The one thing to be aware of is that that you may frustrate people who can then easily find the same content on your blog – they may feel they were ‘tricked’ into giving an email address to get access to information that is freelty available on your website or blog.

This is also an interesting use of an infographic for affiliate marketing. The marketer created an infographic with tips related to the subject of a product he is an affiliate for so that in his blog post which had the details of the infographic he includes his affiliate link. If you use this approach ensure that you reference that you are promoting an affiliate product to ensure that you are compliant with FTC guidelines especially if you are in the US.

He also places the URL of the landing page on the infographic so that if people post the infographic they will help him build his email list.

Data on how to get more repins on Pinterest

If you are using Pinterest here is some research for you to review and evaluate against what you are experiencing for your content plan.

Dan Zarrella has examined some 11,000 posts on Pinterest and identified some key insights:

- the description of your Pin matters and that if your description is about 20 characters it will be more likely to be re-pinned

- people love posting content that is related to food with the most re-pins happening where the following words were included: ‘chicken’, ‘minutes’, ‘bake’ and ‘cake’

- you are more likely to get repinned if the Pin is ‘liked’ by your community versus has a lot of comments

- tall images are likely to have more pins.

As ever you have to review this against your experience. I know was surprised by a recent post I shared which was just a simple text quote rahter than an engaging image received more likes and shares than most of my Pins and the time of my posting has made a difference to the amount of engagement. That’s not unexpected if you consider what we know about engagement on Facebook.

What have you found works for you in relation to encouraging more re-pins of your content on Pinterest?
