How To Grow Your Pinterest Views
When I launched my blog last month, I was scared. I read a lot of inspirational stories from bloggers who took the leap and found success and once I finally got on the other side of my own fear I hit publish. In my first month, the majority of my blog traffic came from Pinterest. This wasn't much of a surprise since I had implemented systems to increase my Pinterest reach. My Pinterest views grew from 4,300 to 36,000 in the first 30 days of my brand new blog!

How I grew my Pinterest reach exponentially:
1. I added descriptive keywords to my name and bio
My Pinterest profile name used to say Brittany Olson. It now says Brittany Olson - Blogging Tips + Online Selling. Those keywords let people know what I do right away which helps my ideal audience find me.
My bio used to simply say blogger, entrepreneur. I now add descriptive keywords to my Pinterest bio and often change my bio to promote a current download or freebie. For example, my bio currently says tips for selling digital & physical products online. Grab my list of wholesalers to find high-quality clothing for your online boutique.
2. I used Tailwind to schedule my pins
Tailwind App is a powerful Pinterest scheduling tool. I started using Tailwind on July 31st. My Pinterest views spiked the next day which lead to a spike in traffic to my website as well. My email list also spiked and I've been getting a larger number of subscribers to my list ever since. Try scheduling your pins with Tailwind App and see the result. The first 100 pins are free!
3. I Started Using Board Booster
Once I started using the looping tool provided by Board Booster, my traffic and subscribers grew even more. I implemented Board Booster's looping tool on August 8 and as you can see in my screenshot, my subscribers grew quite a bit after that! I love the looping tool because it repins your old pins but continues to clean your boards so you don't have multiples on your board. Board Booster is only $5 a month - and well worth it!
4. I Joined Pinterest Group Boards
I joined group boards relevant to my target audience and started sharing my blog posts on those Pinterest group boards. Wondering how to find Pinterest group boards relevant to your niche? Visit Pingroupie for a directory of Pinterest group boards.
