There is no reason to stop learning and the best way to learn is to share the knowledge you have.

Through sharing my knowledge I hope to add to mine.

Having been fortunate to have worked in buying departments as a Merchandise Planner on three different continents, I have been able to gather a wide range of experience and have accumulated a wealth of knowledge, as a Merchandise Planner, which I am now imparting on others.

What is a Merchandise Planner?

A Merchandise Planner is someone who through planning sales and inventory increases profitability by maximising sales and minimising losses within a retail buying department.

That's because in this class you will learn a strategy you can implement immediately to increase the number of pins on your Pinterest account. This class on Pinterest auto Repin in is for anyone who wants help implementing a cost effective way to increase Pinterest metrics. This auto repeating method can be applied to both personal and business Pinterest accounts . Still interested? Watch each lesson to discover what process to follow. 2. What This Class Is About: have you heard? You need to pin up to 50 pins a day on Pinterest off these 50 pins. 80% should be other people's pins and not yours. That means you need to not only create 10 pins of your own content to pin each day. You also need to find 40 pins from other accounts to pin. When you calculate this using 30 days in a month, this works out as meeting 1500 pins a month, 300 off, which would be yours and 1200 would be other people's. When I first did these numbers, I got very able whelmed to the point of meaning my account, dormant for a few months. Aiming to pin this many times a day creates another issue off trying to find an app that allows you to post on Pinterest. They are out there. However, the cost of some of them can be off putting. You may need to sign up for higher plan as some social scheduling APS don't include Pinterest in the lower tier plans. Others may have a limit on how many pins can be scheduled, but in no way allows you to pin as many times as needed in order to use the method being shown in this class on assumption has been made that you have a basic knowledge off help interest works and your account and boars have been set up. If you do not have an account, please set one up before continuing with this class, this class will only be covering one type of pin in strategy and will not be going over any off the following. How to create pins to post how to fill in. You pass on how to create a business account, how to switch from a personal to a business account, how to create boards or how to pin the sole aim off this class is to teach you how to increase your pins on your account, which can lead to an increase in your Pinterest metrics. 3. Create IFTTT Account: the strategy we're going to go through to help achieve the pinion ratio mentioned will require the use of an app called if this, then that also referred to as i f t t T. It is an act that allows you to create outcomes based on specific scenarios, and best of all, it is free to use in this instance. The outcome we want is to add pins to our Pinterest boards based on new content added to our source. Before we move on, you need to create an if this, then that account here is how to do that. Go to www dot i f t c t dot com. Click on Sign Up. You will notice you can sign up with either Google or Facebook. Oh, by creating a user name and password type in the email address you want to use for your if they spend that account. Also type in your password and click on Sign up. Go through any human verification requirements. This is done to make sure you're not about opening an account. That is it. Your account is opened. A good thing to do as well is download the APP onto your Salam fame and that can be found in the APP store or in the Google Play Store. You'll be able to connect your Pinterest account when you create your first chocolate an apple, it is simply the instructions you want carried out. 4. Looking for Pins: well. Success of this strategy is based on the source of the pin zero re pinning, so you'll need to look for boards that not only have lots of pens that regularly get pinned to you will also ideally want ones with a high repin rate for paid ways, you can get the board's reaping Great, however, as this class is all about, not having to pay for any service is I will only take you through the freeways I have found to get boards. There are four members. I used to look up boards to follow pin groupie. There is no need to register on this side, and you can search for boards either by category or by subject or topic. It does allow you to see when aboard was lost, crawled and allows you to rank boards in ascending or descending order based on things like pins, collaborators, followers, re pins And so one. Another way I look for boards to repent from is to look to see if any industry leaders have a Pinterest account, and if they do, I look to see for account has been updated recently. If it has, I create an apple. It to pin from their boards to my boards. Joining Pinterest related Facebook groups is another methods that are years where people share links and also are looking for boards to follow and all contribute to. On the fourth place I gave to look for boards to follow is within Pinterest itself. You may have noticed a manually pinning within pin dressed. You get a suggested board you might like to have a cat. I used this suggested board that pops up to create an APP. Let so pins are re penned from that board to my board in finding group boards to Repin from you would need to decipher the board's activity level. This can be done using a very basic method that gives an indication, or if it is worthwhile or not using the board. This manual method is very basic. Andi involves me using my phone to access the accounts. I'm interested in following and then looking to see when each board had a pin last ST to it . If a board hasn't been saved two in the last couple of weeks, then I discard using backboard. I tend to prefer the ones that have had pin saved to them as recently as sometime in the last few hours. My reason for looking at when each board had a pin last stage to it has to do with me making sure I am painting from an active and not a dormant account. Hence why I try and pin from accounts that have new pins, pins to their boards every day. 5. Creating an Applet: just before we set up Also pin in. We need to get the RSS feed for the boards. All sites who want to pin from. If you're using a Pinterest board as your pencils, you'd need to add dot rs s to the end off the board. You are l here's an example of my RSS fee for my teaching board. It's www dot Pinterest dot com forward slash sloppy success forward slash teaching on skill share dot rs s If you're using a website and they do not have an R s s feed icon on their side, you can go to a feat validated Sites like feed validate adult all to check a feeds RSS you are out. We've gone through creating and if this then that account and we've also gone through it a few different ways to find boards to Repin. From now it's time to set up auto pin in from your office than that account to your Pinterest boards. This is done via what is known within if this then that as an applet to create an apple it here are the steps to follow logging to your If this then that account select new apple it click on the word this in blue. It has a plus in front of this select R S s feed service. Select new feet item as the trigger paste in the RSS feed. Click on creates trigger. Click on the word that which is also in blue and has a plus in front of that in the search services box. Type in Pinterest and select the icon when it comes up. This is where you connect your Pinterest account. Teoh. If this, then that account. If this is the first apple it you're creating for Pinterest, click on Add Pinto board and the enter aboard Main box. Type in the board name exactly as it is in your Pinterest account. Leave the photo. You're L box and changed in. Add a description box, delete entry title, click on at ingredients and select entry content in so CRL. Click on add ingredients and select entry author into the box so the box will now have engine author and entry. You are well, click on create action and then click Finish. It would say at the top of your screen you made a new apple. It I always tend to click on Chek Nail at the bottom off the applet, and if it's been set up correctly, it would say apple. It checked now the specified board in your account when automatic, have pins added whenever the source Eero has a pin at a TERT. 6. Monitoring Applets: Now the athlete has been set up. You start to see an increase in the number of pins on your boards. For the first week or so, it would be best to monitor the pins being automatically pinned to your boards. This way, you can be sure you're happy with the source. Check. The pins are appropriates for the board, and you can delete any inappropriate pins. If you're not happy with the APP, let you can always switch to Apple it off said. No more pins are posted to your board to help. Want to tell your app? Lets you can download. But if they're spent that at From the Google Play store for Android, all the app store for Apple devices, another thing you can do is keep a record off. How many pins are pinned to each board and athletes can be created for this and you can access the information. Why Global sheets 7. Wrap Up: I hope you found this class helpful, especially as it is a very cost effective way of being able to pin lots of pins by other people, which is something that Pinterest seems to love in this class. We have gone through how to create and if this, then that account looked at five different ways to find pins to pin to your boards and how to create APP lets. Once your app lets start up and running, you need to initially monitor them to make sure the pens are appropriates. And if they are not, delete the pins and switch. The APP lets off. Effective use off. This method will help increase your Pinterest accounts, monthly views, engagement levels, saves and followers, and all of this would be done without pay for a subscription. 8. Class Project: Now it's over to you go through each lesson in this class open and if this then that account creating apple. It's using an RSS feed. If you do not have an RSS feed, use this one and share an image off apogee created with us to share the image.
