Add a Price at Pinterest

A simple tip for sharing products from your Zazzle or Etsy shop at Pinterst. You can add the cost of the gift in a slanted banner across the display image at Pinterest. All you have to do is add the cost within the description of the pin, and Pinterest will do the rest.

People will be able to search by price from Pinterst. I've seen everything from small ticket items like this Keep Calm and Carry On parody greeting card on up to $555,000 homes that people put on their wish lists.

Of course, the other tip is to post other people's items at Etsy and Zazzle on your wishlists. Pinterest is set up to share cool links more than provide self-promotion and people are more likely to re-pin and promote for you if they can tell you're into using Pinterest as a sharing site rather than for promotion. The people you find pinning each and every product in their stores at Etsy or Zazzle probably won't have a lot of re-pins on their accounts.
