Why Should My Business Be On Pinterest?

Have you wanted to get started on Pinterest for Busines but have no idea where to start? I have heard your cries! I have created a how to get started on Pinterest for business guide for you.

Tell Me More!

In case you do not already know, Pinterest is for more than just cooking, crafting, and fashion. Many businesses have gotten ahold of the power of Pinterest in generating clients to their websites. There are a lot of people who would jump on the Pinterest wagon if they only knew how . . .

How to Get Started on Pinterest for Business?

Pinterest accounts for business should not be time-consuming or difficult to open. However, for many people it is. Keeping the frustration factor in mind, I have created my first e-course to get you started. I will walk you through each step and explain how you will open your Pinterest business account. You will definitely need a Pinterest business account, even if you already have a personal account. The Pinterest business account is free and will give you the analytical information you need to see how your pins are performing.

Tell Me More About It!

I have been a Pinterest user for at least eight years. The first time I experienced Pinterest, I did not like it. It looked very busy and I did not revisit again for some time later. When I went back to Pinterest I had a better understanding of how it worked. Pinterest uses pins that generate interest that will generate traffic to whatever your pin is selling. It could be anything from recipes to marketing your product.

How I used Bilingual Cue Cards to Teach Online ESL

Teaching English as a Second Language (ESL) online can be tricky. Picture this, you are teaching online ESL to a child thousands of miles away in a city in China. You are reaching deep into your teacher toolkit and nothing is working. This child simply does not understand. Never fear, online ESL cue cards are here.

These cue cards are a great form of communication at the beginning or end of your lesson. Imagine spending twenty-five minutes of being taught a language you do not understand but have a little familiarity at the end. You see a goodbye message, in your language.

These cards are ideal if you are teaching independently. Even if you are not teaching independently and working with one of the big guys (VIPKID, Cambly, SayABC, and the like), make sure you understand your companies rules to make sure that these cue cards are permissible. You can find the link to purchase here: https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Online-ESL-Teaching-Bilingual-Cue-Cards-Chinese-English-Teach-English-Online-3144988

My experience in teaching online ESL has been great. I have unofficially put myself into retirement with VIPKID. I do enjoy teaching independently when the time allows. However, I have a full-time teaching position outside the home (and online world) so my time teaching online is limited. Especially when I include my blog, podcast, and creating on Teachers Pay Teachers.

How has your experience been teaching online ESL? What company do you work with? What have been your pros and cons? Leave a comment below and share how you feel.

Teachers Can Make Extra Money Without Working Harder Right Now!

Extra Income for Teachers

As a teacher, I am looking for opportunities to make extra money. Especially opportuities that allow me to think smarter, instead of harder. What does that mean? Well, it feels easy and it looks like I don’t have to leave the comfort of home in order to make a few extra dollars.

Back to the Grind

I have been back to work for over a month now. Inadvertently, I took this time period off to get reaclamated to the working mom life. Back to early mornings, getting kids up and off to school, traffic, and you know the rest.

Blogging and social media took a backseat to the job that pays the bills. I had classes to teach. Names to learn. Relationship to build and papers to grade. With school back in session, my teacher friends are looking at ways to make a little extra money.

My Story

After over a month, I have dedicated the time to get back on my independent grind. Let’s get down to business. The new theme is earning smarter not harder. When I was a new teacher, I (gasp) worked for free. I was the drill team coach and I remember working unpaid after school coaching the team for various parades and such. I dedicated three days, four and a half hours to this activity. I was working harder, for free . . . 

Don’t be like the young me!  Instead get paid from the comfort of your own home with Tinker Ed.

Here are the few easy tips on how to make a big impact on your Facebook business page in 2019.

#1: Modernize Page Template

You can update or modernize your page template found under Page settings. Facebook offers a variety of business page templates that have default buttons and tabs. This will help marketers showcase their content. Aim to align your template with your type of business and business goals.

The current template for the business page includes the following:

    • Business
    • Nonprofit
    • Politicians
    • Services
    • Shopping
    • Standards
    • Video Page Venues
  • Restaurants and Cafes

Make sure that you fully utilized the included tabs to make the most of your template. You can also customize these tabs and sections to support more information. That makes your business unique, such as adding in live videos, services or custom app. Facebook has a one-size-fits-all template that gives business many options to customize pages. That will fit their needs and get the purpose out of it.

#2: Focus on Quality rather than quantity

The logic is, the higher quality your content is, the more chances your followers will grow. By liking, commenting on and hitting the share button. Focus on creating quality pieces and spend the time to research.  Boost your highest quality posts while sharing industry news content. It is the best way to keep your followers interested in less effort.

#3: Give enough information about your business

One of the key points of adding trust and confidence is to give information about the details of your business. Having said that, people need to be informed about all the details that are relevant. Important information involved your Website, working hours, description, contacts, personal interest and etc.

#4: Grow a community around it

Another way to update your Facebook Page is to grow a community around it by making a group. Groups can help to grow your page by bringing new clients/customers to a topic that is centered around your business. It is all about community growth and bringing the customers to you. Once you have that, your Facebook page will get the likes you want and a natural following.

#5: Leverage  your existing customer recommendation

Another way to make a big impact on your Facebook page is to increase your brand awareness and gain new customers. This can be done by leveraging your existing customers. How do you leverage your new customers? You can do this through recommendation. This is an updated tool that will now allow fans and followers to post text, tags, and photos directly on your page for others to see.

Also, encourage your customers to provide reviews about their experiences with your business. These reviews will appear across Facebook. When people are searching, these reviews are great for bringing new customers to your business. This will then extend your reach to new potential customers.

#6: Invite people to like and share your page

By inviting your existing friends, customers, and clients to like and share your Facebook Page, they are helping to grow your audience. Make your page easy to share by adding icons and a “Like” box to your website. Create a blog and ask your readers, customers, friends and site visitors to like your page and pass it on.
