I posted my first pins just about 7 days ago, from that point on I never looked back. I searched up every single detail I could on how to grow to your traffic on your Pinterest account and put that detail into action. A lot of people underestimate how using Pinterest the right way can boost your traffic tenfold. One of the important rules I remembered was to pin consistently and frequently.
1. One must Pin
Pin if your life depended on it! I was recommended that the average Pinterest user should pin 15-25 times a day! I took that information and quadrupled my effort I started pinning 100 times a day or more because I knew I wanted results fast and this was going to grow my traffic to the max. I pinned my stuff, of course to my own boards but I also pinned other peoples pins to my board 10 times more. This got me into the habit into becoming a consistent re-pinner. Social media apps tend to reward users who use the app daily, and stay busy.
I couldn’t make 100 pins that would take days or weeks. So I did the next best thing which was take someone else’s pins and pin them as much as I could. The next thing I did was focus on making my board stand out from the crowd.
2. Create your own eye-catching pins
Eventually you want to get into the habit of creating your own pins and adding your website into the pin, so that when people do click on your pin they’re able to see your website instantly. Hence, the more traffic you’ll get. These are some steps you can take to make that one viral pin that will boost your traffic.
Make sure you create a pin that stands out, you don’t want to make a lousy pin because you definitely will not get views. Use long worded titles with action words included, also use bright colors that will make you stand out. Once you master these steps, you’ll be sure to get a viral pin that will have 50k impressions in no time.
3. Make up to 10-15 bright multiple boards
Everyone seems to sleep on your important your cover image for your board can be. You have to make yourself stand out from the crowd, especially when you have someone scrolling through your feed. Even if you have low traffic for the moment, all it takes is one conversion. One app that helped me expand my creativity is Canva.
Canva allows you to make any kind of image, whether it’s a video or a business card, and save it to your phone. They have pre made pics that you can just edit and then upload it to your Pinterest. Make a colorful, and bright cover image with words that will catch your eye. And don’t just do 1 board, make sure to make up to 15 different boards. People want something to scroll, through and spend time looking in someone’s feed.
4. Use Tailwind, join tribes and group boards
The best tool and most convenient site for Pinterest users, is without a doubt tailwind. With tailwind you can pre-schedule multiple ads, Join tribes which have thousands of users (similar to boards), and also post in Tribes. Tailwind is super useful because not everybody wants to sit there on the phone pinning and re-pinning 24-7. With tribe you can select a schedule that will pin for you, whether it’s every 5 mins or every 30 minutes. Plus you get the luxury of joining tribes, which are a lot easier to join than joining group boards. Joining a tribe allows you to promote your business or blog, everyday i post a pin that i made to market my .99 cents Online Fitness Class Box+Burn+Abs. With Group boards you have to send an email to the person, multiple other steps, there’s a ton of rules and you just don’t want to deal with that, so make it easy on yourself and join tailwinds.
After committing to all these steps, from 20k views on my account i was able to bring my view count up 40k shortly after. And its all from taking the time to re-pin, pin my own content, create boards, and join tailwind. But nothing will happen unless you take action, and stay committed to your task. Put a note in that schedule of yours and remind yourself daily to increase your traffic, you’ll thank yourself in the long run.
