How to add Pin It buttons to your Squarespace website - video tutorial

Fun fact - Pinterest is one of the top 2 drivers of traffic to my website, along with Google. Every time I publish a blog post, I pin the blog post image to Pinterest and sit back & relax while Pinterest sends tons of visitors over to my website. It's a small step that yields major results!

Pinterest is one of the most powerful search engines in the world and it works for every website, in just about any industry. If you aren't already using Pinterest to support your website or blog's growth, get on it asap!

One of the easiest ways to make sure that your content can be shared to Pinterest is by adding Pin It buttons to your website and blog.

Pin It buttons appear whenever someone hovers over an image on your site and in just one click, the image (and corresponding content) is shared to Pinterest for the whole world to see. It's super easy to set up and you can customize these Pin It buttons to meet your needs and look exactly how you want! 

If you're ready to add Pin It buttons to your Squarespace website, I hope this video tutorial shows you how easy they are to add and how you can style them to match your website!

5 techniques for higher converting blog posts

Can you think of any websites out there that DON'T benefit from high-converting blog posts? 

Whether it's e-commerce, a business website, personal blogs, or an online business, blogging is super important and can help a website grow hella fast!

Blogging is free content that drives traffic to your website, increases your "like, know & trust" factor, showcases your offerings, and pimps out your knowledge/expertise to potential clients. People love checkout out free content online and blogging is a phenomenal way to reach new audiences and attract more of your ideal client.

In my own business, for example, blogging has been a game changer. I publish new blog posts at least twice a week (binge the Archives here) and that consistency has definitely paid off. A quick look at my Squarespace Analytics tab shows that Google and Pinterest are my largest traffic drivers, and that I can directly attribute those referrals to blogging.

3 strategic ways to drive traffic from social media to your website

Running a website can often feel like you're juggling about ten different balls in the air trying to keep everything afloat.

There are so many moving parts to having a website that it can sometimes feel like you're always "working" but not always seeing results. For most websites, the goal is to generate traffic and increase sales of a product or service. This goal is quantifiable and possible to achieve...so long as you go about it systematically. 

Depending on which "expert" you listen to, they will tell you that to increase traffic to your website you have to do more of one thing. They might tell you to focus your efforts on social media, email marketing, networking at industry events, content creation, etc. All of those strategies are valid but by trying to do everything at once, you'll spread yourself too thin and won't see any results.
