I didn’t join any group boards until I was established more on Pinterest, that way anyone that was interested in further looking at my profile, wouldn’t think I was some beginner not worth looking into.
Group boards can be fun and some usually have rules that if you don’t follow, you will get booted out of. When you are a part of a group board, make sure to also pin other peoples pins and not solely just add your own work to the group.
When creating a pin there are a few things you want to make sure you check off before posting.
- All your pins have descriptions using relative keywords.
- The photo using for the pin is related to the post
- No broken links
When designing a board there are a few things you want to make sure you check off before posting.
- Each board has a keyword driven description.
- Each board has sections to stay organized.
- Each board has a relatable cover photo to represent the focus of the board.
Profile Bio Section
When creating your profile bio, you want to be short, sweet and to the point. Mine is basically a quick summary of my top interests, the reason I do that is so anyone who is largely into any of those topics will know that they can follow my page for relatable content.
“Entrepreneur, Suicide Prevention & Awareness Advocate, Dog Mom, Avid Traveler, Pro-Marijuana, Jigsaw Puzzle Fanatic, Aspiring Chef”
This is vital to success, just like with any other social media platform, posting daily makes your account relevant & able to easily consistently grow a following. I make sure to do 10 posts minimum a day on Pinterest. It doesn’t have to be 10 masterpieces unless you are a perfectionist like myself. Mix it up, post to multiple boards, have some posts be more in-depth than the next.
To better understand the importance, imagine it is real life and every day you go to the same restaurant, some days you just get a coffee and some days you get a full 5 course meal, the staff and other regular patrons will start to recognize you and be more comfortable starting a conversation with you than someone who never comes in.
It really is this simple, practice makes perfect. Drop your Pinterest profile link in the comments for me to check them out!
