This set of charts came about because my marketing attempts on Pinterest felt random and disorganized. I needed to get a grip on the efficacy of my efforts, and that had to include figuring out where my sales originated. After going through Teaching Blog Traffic School, I began to understand how Pinterest works and wanted to come up with a way to track what I was doing on this platform. I came up with three charts, and I’d love some feedback on them. What would you add? What is unnecessary? What revelations do you have while filling them out? I hope you find these useful!
Pinterest Collaborative Board Tracker
This simple grid allows the user to list collaborative boards and their requirements. List the owner, ratio required, pay it forward policy, etc. Change the columns as needed. What you will see is an emerging pattern, and that pattern will help you decide which boards are worth nurturing and which are not. An example is provided.
Pinterest Pin Tracker A
This simple one-week grid allows the user to list boards vertically and products horizontally. You can jot down dates on which you pinned these products in the grid space for each. Play around with the grid and add the number of repins or check marks for “ratio items” you pin on boards requiring them. An example is provided.
Pinterest Pin Tracker B
This one-week grid is more complex and allows the user to keep track of which products are pinned on which boards on which days, which products are repinned, and which “ratio items” are used on boards requiring them. A key is provided to indicate blog, website, quotation, meme, infographic, and “paid forward” pin. An example is provided.
