Pinterest is a fun and potentially profitable social media platform. It is not as hard to navigate and make money from as you might think. In order to make it even easier, I have compiled some Pinterest tips and tricks to help you navigate this versatile platform.
5 Quick Pinterest Tips And Tricks:
1. Follow 300 people a day interested in your niche.
Pinterest has a daily follow limit of 300 people, but if you work smartly with this follow limit, you can use it to grow your audience with relevant followers that are already interested in your niche. Finding these followers is
easy: Find boards that are relevant to your niche with a large following. Follow all of those followers (up to your 300 per day follow limit). Repeat daily. I have grown my audience from 800 followers to 9500 followers in a matter of 6 weeks, using this trick.
2. Share your videos
You do not have to only pin images to the platform, but also videos from youtube. Post your video to your relevant boards. Because people on Pinterest are usually ready to buy or consume content, so this is especially useful for guides on how to use products, unboxing videos, and review videos.
3. Share direct affiliate links.
Pinterest allows direct affiliate links. You can take advantage of that fact by sharing items from a variety of products that are related to your niche, by adding them to your boards or create specific boards, such as a Mother’s Day Gift board, or gifts for her board, or a fashion board. I have a board that includes home decor, another that is solely for pillows, as well as a popular board containing business cards from Zazzle designers. Be creative.
4. Pin relevant quotes, linking them to your content.
Quotes that are related to your content (which you can also use for Instagram and Twitter) are very popular on Pinterest. Quote boards are often group boards and have a large following because everyone looks for inspiration, and motivation at times. This universal appeal can help you promote your blog and website without seeming spammy to a wide audience.
5. Add a humor board to your collection.
Just like quote boards, humor boards have a wide appeal. In order to draw a wide variety of people to your Pinterest account, and to keep the content light you can create a board that contains funny content related to your niche. Sports humor goes well with fitness niches while parenting humor is much appreciated in lifestyle and parenting, as well as education and homeschool niches. Again, be creative, but keep the content relevant.
I hope these quick Pinterest Tips and Tricks helped you to utilize the potential of this versatile social media platform.
