  • Tuesday Toolbox: Using Pinterest for Business

    It's Tuesday! Time for our Tuesday's Toolbox Video. Today we're on the topic of Pinterest for Business. Pinterest is a social network where people can find inspiration and ideas for their interests and hobbies. Every idea is represented by a Pin, which is an image that is searched and saved by Pinterest users. Pins can also link back to websites, which is why Pinterest is great for driving traffic and sales. Check-out what Stacey VanLandingham of Bean & Noodle is doing on Pinterest and get ready to start pinning! https://youtu.be/BEjUmSm6MYA

    It's Tuesday! Time for our Tuesday's Toolbox Video. This week we're creating stories for Instagram and Facebook. Stories are a fun and personal way to engage with your audience. If you want to create stories, here’s Stacey Van Landingham to guide you through the process of story postingStacey has been living in Elgin since October 2015. She lives in a red house with her husband, two dogs, two cats, and a lot of yarn. A cross country road trip in 1999, and a chance visit to Hatch Show Print in Nashville gave her the printing bug and inspired her to learn letterpress printing and get a publishing job. True story. By day she is the Production Director at Texas Monthly. In her spare time she has designed T-Shirts and marketing materials for the Hogeye Festival, City of Elgin street banners, and more. In 2018 She co-founded She Creates Union and is owner of Bean & Noodle where she designs and makes letterpress cards and Potluck Tableware, a line of upcycled silverware with cheeky type.

    Watch for the Tuesday Toolbox videos on Facebook and Instagram.

    A team of us have been developing a Toolbox of short videos with digital marketing tips for you. They cover social media topics that were brought up during conversations with some of our Chamber members, friends and colleagues.

     

    These videos will be of our experiences using Zoom, Instagram, Facebook, websites, blogs, Pinterest, WordPress, etc. We are not posting as experts in any of these areas but simply want to share our successes, failures and discoveries. We hope these tools will be helpful in maneuvering through social media and ease the anxiety of delving into something new! Maybe you have some tips and ideas to add to each week's presentation from each other, we may learn new ways to help the next person who finds these things challenging.
