If you’re brand new to Pinterest I know that it can be overwhelming trying to understand best practises. That’s why I’ve created a guide to help you set up your Pinterest account for business.
The constant need for new content as a time-strapped entrepreneur can be stressful. But if done right it is proven to consistently entice your audience to come back time and time again. With this in mind, I’ve created a list of some of the best stock photo sites, both free and paid, to help you ease off your workload for good.
Why use stock photos?
You can learn a lot about a brand by the images they use. Not only are the useful for illustrating your point and keeping our very short attention spans engaged (thanks Internet), they are incredibly powerful for conveying the emotion and feeling we want others to associate with our brand through beautifully curated imagery.
As business owners, we constantly have to shift between a number of hats. Stock photography gives you one less thing to worry about, so you can redirect that energy and put it to better use on more top-level tasks, like binge-watching TV shows on Netflix.

A popular trend I’ve noticed mainly in the realm of Facebook groups are Instagram follow threads. The posts will look something like this:
Hey does anyone wanna join an Instagram follow thread?
Let’s support each other comment below your Instagram handle (btw here’s mine at the top, front and centre where it can’t get lost in a sea of comments - smart)
Wouldn’t be fun to all help each other succeed? Drop your links below and let’s pour love into one another.
The idea being that everyone follows each other and becomes this big, happy dysfunctional family. Sounds perfect right? But unfortunately that’s just not how it plays out.
How do you write engaging Instagram captions for business that stand out among all the noise?
It’s no secret that our attention spans on social media are becoming shorter and shorter so how do you create captivating copy that stops a scroller in their midst to say damn this really spoke to me?
