Valuable Insights by Melissa:

If you have your post/blog on your sites, you should include a pinnable image in that post.

If you are looking for any Pinterest strategy by Pinterest experts online, just make sure that they have found success in the last year.

Utilize Quiz to promote your podcast show.

While creating a quiz, before you come up with questions, come up with results.

Instead of running ads to your podcast, run ads for your freebies.

If you're running paid ads for your show, run them on your website instead of running them on Apple, Spotify, etc.
