How Did I Get 3K Impressions Overnight on PINTEREST?

Last Update: August 29, 2020

Hello WA Family👋,

Hope everyone of you and your business are well. 🙂

Yesterday, one of our valued members at WA, James shared his success with Pinterest.

So, today I also would like to share my website promoting progress utilizing the same APP.

You surely already know that social media is a great platform that can help you to promote your blog contents. The most commonly used social media are Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. Indeed, those third social media are the most suggested platforms by SEO experts and marketers to share your blog content. But have you ever heard of Pinterest? Many of you have heard about it but maybe don't quite understand how it really works.

Pinterest is an online pinboard that is used to collect multimedia from various websites.

Maybe you are wondering how this one social media platform can help you to promote blog content and increase your website traffic?

There are several things that can explain why Pinterest is one of the right platforms to promote your blog content:

- A pin on Pinterest can be spread even further than a tweet

- A pin can increase page visits and page views

- If you are still unsure about using Pinterest, some big brands like Wal-Mart, Apple, Target, and Lowe's use Pinterest as part of their online marketing strategy. If these big brands use Pinterest, it doesn't hurt for you to try it too.

I love pinning on Pinterest.

These three days I have been doing experiments in repinning my old posts and look what it gets me:

My Pinterest Overview 2 Days Ago

My Pinterest Overview Yesterday


Over 3000 impressions overnight!!



HOW?

I revamped my old post. I play around with my pin designs and tweak the title of my post.

Different pins, different results.

One same blog post, after being revamped, it made a HUGE difference.

One has 310 views, the other one has 519 views with 1 repinned and 2 saves.

Not quite convince yet?

Check this out:

One has 39 views, the other one gets 989 views. HUGEEEEE difference!

See what I mean??

This pin I just posted yesterday too.

I got almost 200 impressions from it. Imagine if you do 10 to 20 pins a day??

Those are just some examples.

HOW DID I MAKE THE PIN DESIGNS?

I use CANVA. I LOVE love LOVEEEE Canva.

It's FREE and we can do whatever we want from creating blog banner, Instagram post, Facebook post, Pinterest pins, and MORE.

In order to boost your impressions on Pinterest, I have some tips for you:

1) Re-pin everyday. I do at least 10 pins (my own blog post and other Pinterest users posts).

2) Pay attention the choice of words on the title of our pins and the clarity of the picture. Make sure the picture is eye-catching and vibrant.

3) Use branding and logo to a minimum. Do you notice that my website url is in small fonts? Yes, we are promoting our website BUT our main FOCUS is to the message we carry in the post itself, how we help the audience benefits from our blog post.

4) Make sure that the image on the pin is simple and focus on the theme of your post. Strong title and image are powerful in getting people to click our pins.

Last but not the least, don't be afraid of experimenting. You won't know until you have tried. 🙂

WHAT"S NEXT?

Right now, 1000K+ a day seems to be small but I believe, it will make a huge difference to my business moving forward.

My next goal is to get 1M impressions a month. So, I'll keep repinning my old posts and be active to pin other Pinterest users' pins (those who share the same niche with me).

Wish me luck!!

OK Folks, that's all for today.

Thank you for taking time to read this post and please let me know your thoughts. I would love to hear them.

Also, if you have a ninja tips to get an even BETTER result, oh boy... please please please share with the community. 😉 😉 😉


Have a wonderful week ahead you guys.

Stay safe, happy and healthy!

UPDATE:

I just post this literally just this morning. In few hours, I got over 200 impressions!!!

I am so fired up to keep pinning lol... This is my blog post from last month. I just repinned and changed the pin design.

Ferra,

I needed good advice on Pinterest like you had in this blog. This was one of the most clearest and easiest to understand methods on using Pinterest.

Of course, others have said exactly the same thing. But you said it using actual before and after examples showing the results, Your advice on what to focus on in creating ones pin was extremely helpful.

I have only pinned 27 out of my 91 website posts on Pinterest. I feel good for not doing more because I would have got them wrong just like my current pins.

Before I add new pins I will revamp my existing pins so that I can see the before and after results. Then I will use that information to add more pins.

Considering how I have been neglecting Pinterest I am not surprised my results are poor. I have everything to gain by taking your advice.

This post is like GOLD! I have bookmarked this post for future reference.

Thanks much Ferra.

Really insightful post, thank you! I've been playing around with Pinterest and Canva recently and I find myself falling down a rabbit hole. It could be an hour later and I'm still playing around with it. Any tips to avoid this? Also, do you have more success with video posts where you can add in tags?

Thanks,
Sharon

Hi Sharon,

Thank you for your comment and question.

To avoid spending a long time in choosing designs or templates on Canva, I have to know what I want first. Say I want video pins template. I search only video pins. If I want blog banner templates, I will search blog banner only. I'll narrow them down to 2 favorite templates.

Yes. I have blog post talking about video pins. It's much better because we can add tags.

Have fun but don't play too long and fall into the rabbit hole he he...

No promises on the rabbit hole but I am trying!

Hey Ferra,

Thanks for writing this post.

I was watching a video about getting more traffic, and the guy on the video said that you can repost Tweets on Twitter up to 6 times before you see less people paying attention.

What do you think about that?

Is that spamming? Will it be counterproductive in the end?

Hello Michael,

That's interesting. I would think if it is the same blog post, then it would be considered spamming.

Maybe we could learn how exactly Tailwind works. The do the scheduling based on the best times to post on each social media. I am still learning how to use it. Many bloggers have claimed that Tailwind is one of their secret weapons to build their traffics.

Cheers,
Ferra

OK. Never heard of Tailwind, but that sounds promising.

Thanks Ferra.

HI!

This is great! Do you use PInterest as a private or business account? And how do you use Canva? I have an account there but I only used it a few times to create a book cover and found it difficult. My covers came out lousy and I had to get professional help for the design. Does Canva offer any tuturials (not videos)?

Hi Christine,

I use Pinterest as a personal account for years, I just changed it into business account.
In terms of using Canva, I just play around with the app on my phone for over a year before I even started my website. I have used it for creating my teaching lesson plans and making my YouTube channel's thumbnails.

Here is Jay's training about Canva :) Check out this post too:

Hope it helps,

Fantastic job! I'm playing around and experiment with Pinterest as well. I didn't know you could repin the same pin.

I use a similar method on Twitter however. Same text and link, but changing the photo.

Is this the same principle?

How about hashtags, does that apply on Pinterest or only Instagram and Twitter?

Hello,

They don't do hashtags on Pinterest, I personally haven't tried it yet but I think it is worth a try. I'll do more research on it though.

Regarding the experiment I have done, yes I use the same blog post and remake the pins, change the title and play around with words on the description so it might help with SEO. By all means, I am no exert. I am still learning too.

If you read through the comments on here, someone said that keep pinning until you are found by strong pinners because that also plays an important part of being found too by the "tribes."

Thank you for your kind comment. I cannot wait to hear your success story of growing your website traffic with Pinterest too.

To our success,
Ferra

I didn't know Pinterest could help with SEO. It's definitely a platform to discover more.

Thanks for your contribution! 😊
