I got an idea to make a CodeCanyon board that authors can use to generate traffic, serps, and referral links. Pretty simple, just pin the 590×300, add some of the item description, and throw a link in.
I am looking for people who want to expand this. If there are a bunch of authors working on this it could grow really fast without much effort.Here’s how it works:
- You must have a pinterest account.
- Go and follow the CodeCanyon board here: http://pinterest.com/tyler7/codecanyon/
- Once you are following come back here and post your Pinterest user name. Then you will be made a contributor of the board. This will allow you to make pins on it. The reason you need to follow is because the more people following it, the more people will see it in their feeds and freinds pages etc.
- When making pins, please stick to layout I mentioned above, you can also look at current pins as an example. Also, please look before adding to make sure the given item is not already pinned.
- Also, for now I am asking that its kept to the WordPress category. As things grow other categories will be added.
- Feel free to throw in your referal link! Just make sure its shortened
From a personal test I did with two of my plugins this works really well. I think on a large scale we can really drive a ton of fresh traffic (and people looking to buy) to item pages.
Hello, do you know how to get an invite faster?
Seems cool, I’m always looking for ways to bring traffic to my items. One question though – does Pinterest give you any stats like clicks, views etc?
Still waiting for an invite btw.
Hi, nice idea!
I’m interested, but I’ll have to wait till I get some invitation.
Hey all, I can send invites to whoever needs them! Just send an email
Hi, thank you for the invitation.
My username is dpereyra. I’m already following the CodeCanyon Board.
I’m already on Pinterest and I’ve already pinned my WP items few weeks ago
Sincerely I haven’t monitored the clicks from Pinterest, do you have a good traffic from it?
However now I’m following Codecanyon, my username is lucamonta
Luca and Diego you have both been added, took me a second to figure out I had to follow all on both of you before I could add you to this list.
Well, now i see that board on my profile page!
