Over Half A Million Monthly Viewers On Pinterest - Pinterest Update May 2018

Last Update: May 06, 2018

Watching my Pinterest reach increase has been absolutely incredible. I don't know what my reach was last year but my main business Pinterest account now has a monthly reach of 544000 which is pretty darn sweet if you ask me.

This has resulted in 12 000 visitors to my website last month and it is growing steadily. Just over a year ago I would have been lucky to hit 100 Pinterest visitors in a month.

The funny thing is that I don't even log into my Pinterest business accounts, I conduct all my Pinterest marketing from my personal account because I just don't have the time to log in and out of my 4 different accounts!

I create boards on my personal account, then I add my business accounts as collaborators so that all those boards and pins show up on my business accounts. Because my business Pinterest accounts have their websites verified with Pinterest all pins from my business domains show up as my business pins :)

This makes everything just a little easier for me!

This blog of mine has a list of all the training I have created on Pinterest:

Well done Lynne, sorry I`m just seeing this now.Keep your eyes on your pins should things change drastically, I had the same numbers after working very hard on Pinterest(the only social media I could master) then traffic started going down and down till I had 163.1 K views something really devastating.Then I found out people steal pins so it redirects to their URL if a pin is clicked.
I`m now left searching for my stolen pins and having Pinterest remove them, no easy task.
Once again,really well done

Oh that is awful :( Some people are so awful! I am on 659k now so it looks like my account is fine. Do you add your website url to your actual image? I do that with all my images so maybe people don't do that to me for that reason?

This is the second time I have heard someone I know say this has happened to them on Pinterest.

Congrats. That's awesome. Remember though, you've been working your buns off! You're doing all the right things and will see results.

Hi Lynne, This is an incredible achievement. Congratulations! I am currently half way through watching your Pinterest training videos. They have been immensely helpful. Thank you so much for taking the time to create them. I hope some day that I can have a fraction of the success your having with it.

Barry nothing here is rocket science :) With a bit of practice there is nothing stopping you from achieving the same. I did this in 1 year of being very focused on my Pinterest marketing and you can do the same! Everything I did is in my training :)

Thank you so much Lynne, to hear you say that I could achieve those results means a lot. Really excited about getting started with it now. Just finding my way around Canva at the moment, which is pretty intuitive. Such a handy website!. As I said before your videos have been very valuable. I knew about pinterest and had a general understanding of the gist of it, but I really didn't have a clue as to how it all worked. Your videos really helped me understand the whole process. Definitely gave me a lot more confidence about using it as a really solid traffic source. Especially seeing the results that you have achieved. Your videos are officially my roadmap to Pinterest domination. Thanks again!

Barry I find it really amusing that people look up to me and think that I am some online marketing professional. Anything and everything that I have achieved can also be achieved by you and anyone else here. All I do it follow the training here, work my ass off, ask questions and try new things.

Don't sell yourself short Lynne. While what you say may be true, you are living proof that this stuff really works, and works incredibly well when the knowledge is applied. To see the results that you have achieved by doing the things that most of us are just in the middle of figuring out is what supercharges the efforts of those that haven't made it yet. That's what can make the difference between staying focused and seeing it through or loosing sight and giving up. I'd say that's worth looking up to.

If I can supercharge you to success that makes me happy!

Awesome Lynne, I'm so impressed! And really pleased for you too! Pinterest and Google + are the 2 social media platform I have decided to go for, but I must first get some training (courtesy of your blog) under my belt...
You're such an inspiration! :-)
Cheers for now,
Isabel

I'm happy to help Isabel :) I have not mastered Google+ yet. I do share there but it is a dump and run thing.

Thanks for sharing the tip about adding myself as a collaborator, as you say it would make easier to manage all my website in just one Pinterest account.!
Reply
LynneHuy Premium
Oh trust me, you will find it sooo much easier!

Thats a great idea to add yourself as a collaborator! Im doing that today. Ive been going the long route by logging onto more than one account.
Reply
LynneHuy Premium
Oh no!! I don't have the time to do that. I only access Pinterest under my personal profile and pin everything from there!
Reply
TDomena Premium
I will copy that today! Then you only need one tailwind acct right?
Reply
LynneHuy Premium
Yes but you can only register one website with them! If you pin other websites it is against their terms and you could love your Tailwind account. You can only pin from the domain registered with them.

I have recently been trying out later.com to schedule out and send my post for Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Pinterest. Have you any experience with this verses tailwind?
Reply
LynneHuy Premium
Hi Donald - I've actually never heard of later.com - I just wonder though if they also have things like the Tailwind Tribes which has been such a help.
Reply
dchapman3 Premium
They do have an option called conversations. This allows you to reply to your comments left on your post.

So far it is pretty good.

The free membership gives me 30 post for each of the social media I listed above and there is no time limit.

If I upgrade the next level is only $90/yr and that give me better analytics and 100 post per month.

Seems to be very close to Tailwinds.

Hmm I might just try them out to play with Instagram! I don't need anything for Facebook or Twitter because I use Social Jukebox which is amazing.

Yes I'm loving Pinterest, and to think I was about to drop it altogether just over a year ago because it seemed like it was a waste of time! Thankfully I decided to give it my all before deciding to scrap it first. Close one right?

Wow...that is the first time I am starting to actually "see" what Pinterest is all about.
I do have an account and post there regularly - every post I publish goes up there too...but I didn't know that there are two different kinds of accounts Personal and Business...will go to your profile to learn more!
Thanks for sharing with us this gold mine and wishing you continued $ucce$$

Wow Lynne! That is amazing! Good for you! Since I know nothing about Pinterest I will keep this post in mind if/when I start with it. I don't have time now since we are in the process of buying a new income property and of course I already have a full time job!

You have done an amazing job and you are an inspiration!
