This doesn’t have to be war and peace, but each page of your site needs unique content about that product category. To do this with ease, providers such as Shopify allow you to quickly and easily create a website with visual help.

You can also optimise your site quickly with designated space for SEO implementation. An example of this is if you were selling antique jewellery, you would optimise a page for vintage engagement rings If you are selling products, you are also going to need to purchase an SSL certificate for security.

Pinterest users usually know what they are looking for with specific terms like your search engine optimisation or at least broad terms to get a larger audience.

So, for example, if you were selling pieces from the Art Deco era, then you would optimise your product name for an art deco jeweller. Pinterest is a visual platform so if you don’t have any good images of your products, then take a photoshoot so you have some live shots. If you wanted to edit with graphics, then Canva is a great tool for this.

3. Create A Brand Story

Look at the likes of Gucci, Versace, and Louis Vuitton for inspiration. Obviously, you don’t have the experience or the heritage to grasp customers like these, but it doesn’t mean that you can’t have your own story.

If you are wanting to create an impact with your story, it needs to be brand-led, meaning you need to determine s story of why people need these items. Whether it be for style, sustainability or timeless fashion, there are many ways you can go around this, just ensure that the story resonates with you as it will become increasingly difficult to align your beliefs with the business which your customers will be able to tell.
