Pinterest is such a fun site, often referred to as “eye candy” it’s a great way to drive traffic to your website. Here are a few quick ways to build more followers on Pinterest.

Share, share, share

Sharing is the best way to grab new followers and the more you share, the more people will see your pints. Since 80% of content on Pinterest are repins, you get some significant value in fresh, original content.

Hang with the Cool Kids

The popular pins on Pinterest are another way to grab lots of exposure. To find the most popular pins, click on the little box next to the search

bar. There you’ll see the various categories on Pinterest as well as your Home Feed (the people you follow) and “Popular” if you click on that you’ll see the best stuff trending on Pinterest. Repin and comment on these. It’s a great way to engage there.

And speaking of popular pins, when you’re commenting on these make sure that you write something other than “this is great” – be creative if you comment. The more creative you are, the more you’ll get noticed by the pinner and their followers.

Promote Your Boards

Most people don’t follow entire profiles but instead, will follow boards. So find your most popular boards and then rearrange your page and make sure they’re at the top of your Pinterest profile. Be sure to also share your pins on your social media. For example you can use the image from Pinterest on your Facebook page to drive more people to your board.

Follow the Leader

Following high ranking people in your industry is another good way to get engagement and perhaps even more followers. Many will follow you back and once you’re connected to them, you’ll get their updates into your stream so you can comment, and repin their posts!
