Hey there podcast family, welcome to episode 56 of the Small Business Made Simple Podcast.
I looked forward to episode 52 so much and ticking off the goal of doing a podcast a week for a year, that’s now I’m just, what number am I up too! It no longer correspondences with the week of the year! Confused? Me too!
Anyway, welcome. Thank you for lending me your ears today – I know you have lots of choices, so I sincerely appreciate me being one of them!
If you’re a first time listener, super super welcome, I am so pleased to have you here. I am your host Jenn Donovan, and, it’s my job, via this podcast, social media and everywhere else actually, to make your business life simpler.
Business can be lonely and hard and complicated and it’s hardly ever easy, but it should be simple or at least simpler, so that’s my commitment you to on the Small Business Made Simple podcast!
One way I help to make your life simpler is by having a group of like-minded business owners all in one stop. To ask questions, get answers and enjoy the journey of business! If you haven’t joined the Like Minded Business Owners Facebook Group, then hope over there after this episode and join!

Today, as mentioned in the intro, I have a guest, Belinda from Your Social Bee, talking about Pinterest for business.
As I mention in the interview, Pinterest to me has been, sit on the coach, Friday night, wine and cheese in hand and scroll to my little hearts content on Pinterest. Going down numerous rabbit holes and surfacing when I think “what was I looking for again”.
But this year, Pinterest is a goal of mine. I do a podcast every week and I regularly blog, so therefore, I have oodles of content (tech word that – oodles!).
Pinterest seems like a fairly clear option for me to repurpose my content in a way I am currently not repurposing and also to break into an international market – another goal for 2020.
I put in a group on Facebook that I was looking for a Pinterest legend to interview and Belinda was recommended to me.
I reached out and hey presto – here we are!
Belinda’s business is Your Social Bee - https://yoursocialbee.com.au/ - link is in the show notes.
Belinda is a Pinterest strategist and manager and her zone of genius is Pinterest for Business.
If you’ve never thought about Pinterest as a marketing strategy, or even if you have, listen in. I think you’ll be surprised about the statistics of Pinterest, who’s the target and the type of businesses using it for marketing purposes.
So, without holding Belinda up anymore, welcome Belinda:
INTERVIEW WITH BELINDA
Convinced that Pinterest needs to be on your radar yet? I really hope you enjoyed that episode as much as I did making it.
For those interested, I have started my Pinterest journey just this week and you can be sure that I will let you know of my progress or lack of as time goes on this year.
No doubt I will be doing another episode of what I’ve found or how’s it helped my business or vice versa, if it doesn’t work.
But, that’s all for episode 56.
I’ll be back next Thursday with another great episode to help you simplify your business in 2020.
