Do you want to know how to get more traffic & followers on Pinterest?
Pinterest brings around 3,000 people EVERY DAY to my blog. It is just like free advertising. I think that is is helping so many blogs grow. If someone likes your pin, they will follow it to your page. If they like your page, they will share it, return to it, love it! It is easier than you think to Grow your blog with Pinterest.
**** See #6 for a super-handy tool that pins for you, to the boards that you pick, at the peak time. ****
Here is how it works:
1- Put your pins into the correct boards & use clear categories. I had a board called “Be a savvy saver” and when I changed it to “Money saving tips” my followers on that board grew… a lot. Be clear about what you have.
Now pin them AGAIN into a big group board!!! (I have 2 group boards that you are welcome to join – Saving Money & Easy Dinner Recipes with Little Prep Time) and Paula has some, too! If you want to join them, leave us a comment on one of the pins on those boards & we will see it & add you.
2- Under your pin, be sure to add a “Wow!” description!
Tell me which one you would rather read…
“Good kid book” or “BEST kid book I’ve ever read! Your kids will learn SO MUCH reading this book!”
3- Follow others!
Don’t just let everyone follow you- you need to follow others to get great images to pin. You don’t want to only pin your own things. You will be seeing more great ideas to share with your own followers.
4- Use a great photo. Edit all of your photos on Picmonkey or in another editing page. No one’s photo looks great right off the bat. Play around & edit it. Add your blog name to it, too. I like to use the size 500 X 500 or 500 X 700 because they are more pin-able.
5- Do a pin-swap!!
Have a “pin-it” group on Facebook (here is how to find one), where you pin each other’s pins. You share what you want pinned every day and they will share what they want pinned. You have just boosted each other’s traffic by how every many visitors you have. Get a few people in the group and now you are reaching even more people! Re-pin others pins.
Stop by our Pinterest Party on Saturdays. Paula & myself co-host them on our personal blogs, with two other great bloggers & friends, Kristi & Gabby. This is a great way to show off your pins & have them re-pinned.)
Share & share alike… “Do unto others as you would have done unto you.” (as my son tells me often, “Mom, he/she must know the Golden Rule because they are being really nice!” haha!)
*****SO… ARE YOU READY FOR THE SECRET TIP? *****
There are companies, like Ahalogy.com and ViralTag. You have to apply & be approved. I’ll share more on how to use it next week.
These companies will pin for you, at the peak times. Your pins will be repined more often, and it puts and awesome button on your page, that pops up & says Recommended Pinner.
I hope that information was helpful!
