Marie Forleo and Jenna Kutcher are using SC Stockshop and Social Squares images in some pretty strategic ways that YOU can to0...
Yeah, Facebook and Instagram advertising gets a lot of buzz these days but the smartest boss ladies we know are all about leveraging FREE marketing platforms with major results!
Their platform of choice? Pinterest!
250 million people use Pinterest each month and those users aren't just scrolling! They come to Pinterest to learn, to find and buy useful products, to be inspired, to find helpful information and so much more.
Unlike a typical social platform, users come to Pinterest actively searching for what you have to offer whether that is information they need or a product they will love.
All you need to get more traffic to your site is the right combination of attention grabbing images and compelling explanatory text.

The flip side to the exciting news about the popularity of Pinterest is that additionally, 1.5 million businesses are also on there. Meaning, the competition is thick!
Having high quality, professional, eye-catching images that resonate with your target audience is CRITICAL!
Here is where styled stock from the SC Stockshop & Social Squares can help! We have stunning images that can be overlaid with text to capture the attention of your audience on Pinterest! Powerhouse brands like Marie Forleo, Jenna Kutcher, and so many others are already doing this and seeing results with the same images you have access to!
That's right, you have access to the very same marketing images business owners Marie Forleo (who you know, hangs out with Oprah) and Jenna Kutcher use!
The BEST part is, it's crazy simple to do! Here are a few quick steps on how you can create stunning Pinterest images with styled stock!
How to create Pinterest marketing images with styled stock:
Step 1: Keep in mind that Pinterest is not a typical social platform. It operates instead like a search engine. This means you want to choose eye catching images and combine them with descriptive text like you would use in your blog posts (i.e. "5 Ways to Take Your Side Hustle Full Time").
Step 2: Choose the styled stock image that will resonate with (i.e attract) your target audience either from the SC Stockshop or through your Social Squares image subscription! Keep in mind that the bolder the image, the better.
Step 3: Add your text and any graphic design elements to your styled stock image using a free program like Canva or a program like Photoshop. Don't forget to include your website address on the image!
Step 4: Pin your newly designed pin to Pinterest using SEO heavy language in the description (remember, Pinterest is a search engine)! We also recommend using a program like Tailwind to schedule your pin again over time so that it is constantly getting in front of fresh audiences!
Tip: For each post or product you want to promote, choose 2-3 coordinating images and create multiple pins that link back to the same content! This is a great way to make your content go further!
That's it! In 4 simple steps you can create Pinterest graphics that lead to direct sales, more newsletter sign-ups, better blog engagement and more...just like all the savvy #bossladies we featured here!
Trust us when we say, you are just as savvy and your brand is just as valuable as these brands we've featured! There is no reason you too can't make Pinterest work for you by using our styled stock!
With this transaction Buyer acknowledges that the purchase comes with a non-exclusive limited use license so that the Purchaser may use the image for personal or professional use in the normal course of Purchaser's business.
Purchaser may crop the image and overlay the image with text or pdfs of product designs as fits Purchaser's needs, but Purchaser may not otherwise alter, edit or manipulate the image.
Shay Cochrane remains the sole and exclusive owner and holder of the copyright in the image and the Purchaser may not sell, lease, loan, transfer, assign, or give away the image or a derivative thereof or otherwise allow a third-party to use the image in any way.
The Purchaser may not use SC Stockshop images to promote styling related workshops, webinars, classes, how-to-style blog posts or newsletters, or any styling related training.
These images have been designed to become a part of your branding just like a logo or font choice.
As an entrepreneur yourself, you know how frustrating and discouraging it can be when people misuse, steal, giveaway or alter your work. With that in mind, please don't change the colors or move the props around - it just doesn't look as good (and infringes on the usage terms)!
Feel free to crop the image any way that you want and overlay it with text or designs to help you to promote your brand and sell more products!
By purchasing the image you are agreeing not to give the image (or a part of the image) away to anyone else in ANY way even if you turned it into a beautiful free e-book cover, or snazzy desktop screen savor.
It would also be just plain wrong to re-sell the image in any form such as turning it into an art print or including it in a website or other template design.
Lastly, using an SC Stockshop image to sell your styling course, webinar or other styling related training is sort of false advertising. Show them the styling that YOU have done so that they know exactly what they are in for and can get excited! This is not meant to scare you.
