0 to 300,000 monthly viewers on Pinterest in 8 months
Almost 50% of this number occured around the past 2 months by using "tricks" that I've discovered which I'm about to share with you.
Follow your competitor's followers:
People who follow your competitors are already interested in your niche so it makes sense to follow them in hopes that they follow you back and a good chunk of them actually do.
Try to follow people with at least 100 followers (the more, the better). People with many followers will tend to follow you back. It is said that it's safe to follow up to 140 people a day.
I have a dog niche so I'll use it as an example.
- Type in your niche on the search bar then on the right, click on People
2. Click on those with the most followers
3. Click on Community then click the arrow on the right.
Join Group Boards
Go to Pingroupie dot com
Pingroupie is basically a group board "search engine"
Joining group boards can give your pins potential exposure to massive followers
1. Type your niche on the search bar
2. Click on Request to Join
3. Click Followers
4. Join boards with the most followers
5. Create pins and post them there
Some boards accept you right away but some need approval
Make your boards "joinable"
Choose a board that you want to make joinable then click on + then click on the hexagon to allow people to join your board and to invite people to collaborate with your board/s
Think of a theme
For 5 minutes every morning and most evenings, I think of a theme to pin. Yesterday it was dogs driving cars. The day before it was dog food recipes. The day before that it was dogs with celebrities. And before that it was cute puppies.
For instance, if you have a gardening niche, you can make today's theme about perennials. Tomorrow can be about herbs. After that, it could be tomato growing tips, etc ...
If you use the alphabet soup technique on Pinterest, you'll never run out of ideas to pin
I pin about 20-30 a day. And I also make sure to pin some to group boards.
For those who do not know, Tailwind is basically a community where people with the same niche collaborate with each other by sharing each other's pins. I saw a huge increase in traffic when I used it. (Thanks, Jenny28!)
It's free to try for 30 days then it's around $20/mo.(Canadian)
1.Delete poorly performing pins as they affect SEO. Create new ones.
2.Resist the temptation to save pins that have nothing to do with your niche. If you find something really interesting, create a new board then set it to "secret"
3. Go to your profile, click edit, under privacy and data and make sure this is unchecked:
Hope this helps!
