But how many of you are using it seriously to promote your blog. Pinterest is one of the powerful social media. Once you utilize it fully, you can see an increase in your blog traffic. Pinterest comes third after Facebook and Twitter. It would be wise to utilize this. Let’s see how to increase traffic to your site using Pinterest.
By following the tips provided here, you can increase the traffic within in a month.
How to increase Pinterest followers
For the first half of the month, you need to work on increasing the followers or building your audience. This is the very important part here. If you have loads of content and there is no one to read it, all your efforts will go in vain. Hence, it is necessary to grow your audience.
1. Click on search menu which is present on the top of your Pinterest dashboard.
2. Type in the niche you like. It may be blogging or social media or wordpress or SEO.
3. You will get four options namely all pins, your pins, boards and pinners.
4. You need to select the last option as they are our targets.
Pinners are people like you and me. To increase your audience and promote your site, you need to interact with the pinners and follow them.
Once you have followed them, say a 20 people a day, there is 50% chance that those people will also follow you. But remember you should not spam. Else, you can be banned.
To maintain healthy relation, like their pins, comment on them and also share their pins. This will increase the chance to follow you.
Let’s assume that you have some decent amount of followers. Now comes the next part.
You need to focus on your boards. Boards are very important as they are one of the sources of traffic. You can create a board easily from the dashboard.
Just click on the board and click create. You can refer the image below
Enter the details and make your board as group so that others can add pin to your board. You need to create at least 8 to 10 boards. Out of that, 7 should be a niche from yours and remaining from others.
Join group boards so that you gain maximum traffic. There are two ways
1. Comment on one of the pins in the board that you wish to join in the group.
2. Send a private text to the admin of the group.
Connect other platforms
You have the option to connect your facebook and twitter accounts. I recommend you to connect both your accounts. It is because once the pin is published in Pinterest, it will also be done in Facebook and Twitter. It saves your time.
Once you have created boards on your account and connected other accounts, you need to create content rich Pins and images. Only rich images will attract viewers.
Do the above steps regularly and increase your audience. Add the Pin it button to your site and share contents regularly.
