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.

Create Pinterest boards

Enter the details and make your board as a group so that others can add a 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 remain from others.

Join group boards so that you gain maximum traffic. There are two ways

1. Comment on one of the pins on the board that you wish to join 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 on Pinterest, it will also be done on Facebook and Twitter. It saves your time.

Rich Images

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.
