How would you like more views on your Pins on Pinterest...?

If you are an Etsy shop owner, you may be concerned about using Pinterest to gain views and followers.  In order to do this we must keep up on marketing strategies.  This includes how to use social media sites to benefit your business.  Recently I have read that using "Long Pins" are more beneficial than short pins.

What is a long pin..? Right? If you are an avid Pinterest user such as myself, you have seen many long pins but probably did not realize it had a name.  Basically a long pin is a collection of photos that take up more space than a single photo.

I decided to give this strategy a try... I used photoshop to create a collection of my most popular items from my Etsy shop. Here is the Long Pin:

In about 2-3 months I will re-post any results of using this marketing strategy.
