By now, you may already have known what is Pinterest. It’s one of the largest growing social networking sites. Well, many use Pinterest to drive fun and many Internet marketers use it to drive traffic and money. This article will not show you how to drive traffic and money but, it’ll show you how to increase followers, which may increase both traffic and money. Increasing Pinterest may not be useful right now, but they may really help in the future. In this article I’ll show you few tips to increase your Pinterest followers.
1. Pin Awesome Images!
Pinners won’t follow you unless you have something interesting in your Pinterest Boards. So, the first thing you’ve to do is find some cool pictures and pin them. There are many site which provide you free wallpapers and pictures, you can pin images from there(if the website allows you to do so).
Stumble Upon is a great place where you can find awesome images, you just need to add “Photography” as an interest and then start stumbling! Then, you’ll find many iamges, some aren’t pinnable, you need to save them in your computer and then upload it to Pinterest.
2. Don’t Keep pinning images only from your blog!
I’ve found many Pinterest users pinning images only from their blog to increase their traffic. But, it doens’t obviously work for them, and they too don’t increase their followers. People are not interested in images from your blog posts(they maybe interested in a few pics, but this is not in the case of all), so this is a really bad way to increase your Pinterest followers.
3. Don’t Pin For Traffic
Let us think you’ve a blog whose niche is Cancer/Surgery/Dental or anything similar, and you want to increase traffic to that blog using Pinterest, then pinning images from your blog posts would be a bad idea, since no one is interested in checking those Dental/Surgery pics(some maybe interested). So, it’d be better if you pin other images too.
4. Increase your pinning exposure!
Now, after you’ve pinned enough images(200+ would be great!), you need to gain exposure. So, that people will know that you’re here(in Pinterest). There are two great tips to increase your exposure.
1. Keep Commenting
Comment in pics pinned by other Pinterest users. Immediately after you comment, the person who pinned the image will get a notification about that, and he may check your Pinterest boards and if he likes your pins, then he may follow you! To keep increasing your Pinterest exposure, keep commenting as much as you can,.
2. Keep Following
This method is the same as commenting, you need to follow a Pinterest user and he’ll know that you’re following him via Notification, he may check your Pinterest board(s) and may follow you. Keep following until you get bored
I hope you’ll increase your Pinterest followers, hope you enjoyed reading this article!
