How To Use Pinterest For Your Voice Over Business

Have you ever questioned whether you’re a voice actor or a social media manger? I know sometimes it can probably feel like the latter. After all, with so many different social networks out there, and with the benefits of maintaining a presence on them, it can become quite time consuming!

The standard networks most voice talents seem to use are Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Google+. Let me ask you, have you ever considered using Pinterest?

More Than Just Recipes

marc-scott-explainer-pinterestI’ll admit that I avoided Pinterest for years. In fact, I felt fortunate that it was an “unnecessary” social network for me. It meant it was one less website demanding my time!

As far as I could tell, it was a great place to share recipes, craft ideas, fashion photos and ideas for hairstyles. Beyond that, there was seemingly no benefit to me as a voice actor.

Turns out, it’s more than just recipes!

How To Use Pinterest For Your Voice Over Business

I’ve only been on Pinterest for a month or two. However, I’ve already got a few different boards set up. A few of them, I believe, will be of great benefit to my voice over business!

I have a board set up for my demos – Follow It

I have a board for my Explainer Videos – Follow It

I have a board for my other voice work – Follow It

I have a board for voice over “stuff” – Follow It

One Benefit Of Pinterest

One of the great things about Pinterest is that it gives me a place to collect all my content in one place.

I specialize in voice over work for animated explainer videos. If a client asks to hear samples of my work, I can send them to my Pinterest board and many of my projects are there! Easy.

If you specialize in a few different niche areas, you could set up a board for each one.

Is It Time Consuming?

No.

Adding samples of your voice over work to Pinterest is as simple as copying links from YouTube, Vimeo, Soundcloud or wherever else your content is posted.

It might take a little time to set up your boards initially. However, once they’re done, it’s a few minutes here and there each time you want to add something new.

Unlike other social networks, you don’t need to be on Pinterest daily to make it useful and enjoy the benefits.
