Post your interests with Pinterest. Pinterest is a unique social network that is based on sharing and organizing photos found online by “pinning” them onto boards of a specific topic. You can use this visually appealing network to promote your Mannatech business by sharing Mannatech products, blog posts from and other lifestyle posts that you think would be relevant to the financial and physical wellness that Mannatech supports.

  2. Create a New Board. Click “Create a Board” on the left when viewing your profile page. Give your board a descriptive name like “Mannatech Products,” “Healthy Recipes,” “Fitness Tips,” etc.pinterest create board
  3. Add a Pin. Click into one of your boards and then click “Add a Pin” in the upper left corner. Then choose if you’d like to pin from an outside website or from your device.
    1. If you’d like to pin an image from a website outside of Pinterest, enter the web address and hit next. After selecting the image you want to pin from the website, you’ll get another window to create the pin. You’ll do two things in this window—choose which board to add the pin to and write a description of the image you’re pinning.
    2. If you’d like to upload a pin from your device, choose the image and then proceed creating the pin.
  4.  Repin from Your Feed. If someone you’re following has added a pin that you like, you can save it to one of your boards as well. Simply hover over the image on Pinterest and three buttons will appear—repin, like and comment. To add a pin to your account click repin and follow the same steps you would to add a pin.

Now that you have a Pinterest account, what should you pin?

If you have created a Pinterest account to use for your business as a Mannatech Associate, you are a representative of our brand and company. Just as Facebook Business Pages and Twitter business accounts enable you to share content; your goal is to pin content that is relevant and engaging to your prospective clients. Share product images, blog posts, fitness tips, cleanse recipes, inspirational quotes, etc.

Make sure that everything you pin is appropriate, professional and based on information that Mannatech, Inc. shares with the public. Don’t forget to use #Mannatech in your pin descriptions!

Happy Pinning!
