Double Your Pinterest Followers While You Have Your Coffee

Like most companies, I’m sure your brand is already on Pinterest. What if I said you could double your Pinterest followers while you had your morning coffee? The debate about whether you need to worry about adding Pinterest to your social media strategy is over, and the answer is yes. Pinterest has almost tripled in users since 2012, and now reaches more than 70 million people. People use, create, and share on the site. It is a resource to find products, solutions, and gain creative ideas for almost anything.

Pinterest is growing like crazy for a few reasons. This is one of the few social networks where teens, parents, and the elderly can all be found. Why? It’s simple. The diversity lies in the ability for the site to give many different types of users what they want. It doesn’t matter if you are a new bride looking for wedding ideas, a grandmother looking for gift ideas, or a husband trying to decide on a new bench in the entry way for a remodel. They can all be found on Pinterest.

So how do you tap into the resource that is Pinterest? First off, make sure your profile is optimized correctly. Make sure the description in it is relevant, there is link to your website, a photo, and links your brand on other social sites like facebook and twitter. The next step is to verify your website. This will unlock access to the site’s web analytics tools. This will open your eyes to what kind of activity works best to grow your pinterest following.

Now comes the easy part. Set up some boards and start pinning! You can do this once a day while you drink your coffee. Remember, as with most social media it’s not just about broadcasting only your products and services. Spend time building boards with pins that relate to your business, but don’t necessarily point to your site. Bright, vibirent images will get the most likes and repins. Follow people. Start with accounts that relate to your brand, but also slowly branch out into indiviuals who pin cool stuff. This is where your following will really begin to grow. Don’t be afraid to follow “too many” people. Lots will reciprocate, and the onces that don’t can be unfollowed later.

Join some popular group boards, and see what interests people. Contests are becoming popular and can boost your following. The main thing to remember is that the daily interaction is the key. Respond to comments, like pins, share pins, upload pins, and re-pin pins. That will unlock the full power of Pinterest for your brand.
