10 Tips to get Followers on Pinterest

It wasn’t that long ago that there was a big fuss about Pinterest because some little metric watcher noticed that Pinterest was mostly populated by women. Over 90% of the profiles were female, which lead to a subsequent big push by online advertisers to appeal to the female audience on Pinterest. The fact is that most of the social media networks (with the noted exception of LinkedIn and YouTube) are made up of mostly women. In other words, your first tip before reading this list may be that you should try to appealing more to women. Here are ten tips in no particular order to get more Pinterest followers.

1 – Make your followers happy first and promote second

You should find a reason for people to look at your Pinterest account first, and then weave your marketing ideas into your profile. Do not start with the idea of marketing and promotion–those ideas should come later when you have your followers and they are ripe to hear what you want to say. Come up with something that is going to draw people in so that they want to visit and then concentrate on pleasing your followers. If all you do is promote then people will ignore you.

2 – Share as much as you can

Share your pins and the things on your pins so that people recognize them when they come across them. It cannot hurt to share the pictures you have pinned on other websites and try to get them on the Google images tool results too.

3 – Link up with, cross link and cross promote with other social media networks

You should be doing this anyway because there are a lot of people who have more than one type of best social media profile, so do all you can to get people from one social media network to another.

4 – Promote some of your particularly good boards

If you have spent a lot of time on a board and its looks very good then you should promote it. If you promote too often then you are lost in the white noise of your own over-promotion, but do it when you have a very good board and people may pay attention.

5 – Ask your friends to promote your Pinterest boards in return for promoting theirs

This is a cute idea that a lot of people do and if your friends have Pinterest profiles as popular as yours then it is mutually beneficial.

6 – Watch what your competitors do and steal their ideas

Business persons make the mistake of thinking their target audience knows the competition as well as they do, but this is simply not true. Most of the time if you steal an idea from the Pinterest board of your competitor then there are people who will think you came up with it first.

7 – Guest post on other peoples Pinterest boards
This is not as common as it sounds, but it is a nice and inoffensive way to grab a few followers from other popular Pinterest users. You just have to find a way to convince the other Pinterest member to allow you to post.

8 – Add a comment onto popular pins

Make it a good or a meaningful comment and not just a piece of attention seeking spam.

9 – Add in a Profile Widget

You can put this on your website. It is a widget that can show as many as 30 of your most recent pins. This widget is really for the people who are very confident with the quality of their pins to the point where they know that people will start to follow if they see them. There are also advertising benefits too, such as if you are running a particularly good campaign on Pinterest you can show off your work to the people on your website too.

10 – Add in a Pinterest follow button

This is known as a “pin” button and it is a widget that you can attach to your images or pages on your website. It is also a button that may be used to have people follow your Pinterest profile. It can be highly effective if you have a high traffic website and it can be very effective if you are lucky enough to have a traffic source that is already signed in to Pinterest. The same is true for all the social media networks, where if a person is already signed in to that particular network then they are far more likely to use the widgets for it because they know they do not have to sign in to use it (because they are already signed in).
