Our favourite workshop

Jo from Lume Lighting came along to one of our Pinterest Workshops earlier this year. We love her unique lampshade designs! She runs creation workshops in Brighton and Hove ~ Fairy Light Making Workshop & Lampshade Making Workshop

Our favourite magazine 

Bloom magazine ~ It’s definitely been the month to get stuck into the gardening again, a great way to unwind and de-stress. We’ve been loving this magazine for inspiration. ‘For gardeners, plant admirers, nature lovers, curious explorers and outdoor adventurers. It is beautiful and useful; it looks lovely and it works hard; it makes you muse on the handsomeness of nature and it inspires you to get out there and be a part of it.’

Our favourite Pinterest Tip 

Optimise your website or online store for Pinterest
A third of all Google searches are for images! Pinterest is popular because people are drawn to visuals and love searching for them. By not deleting that ‘IMG_1785’ title and including keywords in your Alt Text then you’re missing a huge SEO trick and ruining your chances of appearing in search.

Our favourite Pinterest Account 

Louise Tilbrook Designs ~ A knitter, designer and blogger. Addicted to coffee, cats and journalling.
Louise completed our online course GROW YOUR CREATIVE BUSINESS WITH PINTEREST

Her account is looking gorgeous. It really gives you a perfect overview of Louise’s style and aesthetic!
“I found the course so useful and I’m totally amazed that I’m starting to see results so quickly. I cleaned up my boards and starting using Tailwind in earnest two weeks ago. Already my monthly views have gone from around 40k to 72k – *they are now 214.8k !! – and the monthly engaged figure has gone from 1.1k to 1.9k. I’m trying to get into the habit of checking in with Pinterest quickly each morning and adding interesting pins (plus those I find from blogs etc) into my Tailwind queue ready to be scheduled…”
