"Yes it's July, but did you know that you need about three months of your pins being live on Pinterest for them to start circulating to your audience? Three months! And that you need some time for those keywords to work on Google, for Google to refer your website to people? Well, if we're saying three months for Pinterest, then that means anything you're pinning right now in July, might not get picked up for circulation on Pinterest until mid-October. So no friends, it is not too early!"

Pin Fall and Thanksgiving Fresh Pins
This month, you want to pin fresh fall and Thanksgiving pins. So what does that mean? A fresh pin is simply a new pin design. It doesn't matter what kind of pin it is; it can be an idea pin, a long pin, a video pin, or a regular pin, doesn't matter. But it is a brand new pin that you are pinning to Pinterest for the first time, that you're linking to a blog post you've already released.
Here's where this comes into play. (If you're a brand new blogger, it's going to be a different story for you.) Most of you already have content from last year. So what you're going to do is any fall content, Thanksgiving, autumn, Halloween, any of that type of content from last year, you want to make a new pin for those blog posts and pin them to Pinterest. That is what you're going to start circulating in July, so that way by the time October rolls around they're populating. You want to make sure that you use the correct SEO and keywords.

You need to be prepared and ready to go, so you need to have that content calendar outlined. You're going to want to know what blog posts you're going to be publishing and need to start working on. This way, they're ready to go on the first of September, because that's only about a month away. The time to start planning that stuff is now!
