Now, you may be thinking, what? Cover photos? Titles? How is this going to help me? Well, it could help you a lot! When pinners come across boards that don’t captivate their attention right away, they usually scroll right past them. A majority of Pinterest users look for pretty pictures and you have to deliver. If you have a board that is all about cupcakes, great! But don’t let the cover photo be a picture of a messy spoon. Adding a title to your board is also important, as it will immediately explain what your board is about to help people find what they are looking for easily!

2)    Following Others

If you’re following anyone and everyone just for the sake of getting followers, it may not be as effective as following those who share the same interests as you. For example, if you are a baker, with a majority of pins relating to desserts and sweets, go to the search bar and look up desserts or sweets. From there, you will have the option to go through pins, boards, and people who fall under that category. If you follow the boards of fellow bakers, you will get more exposure to people who will likely follow you. How? The person that you follow will be notified and it could lead them to follow you back. Also, other people who see the followers on that particular board may click on your name and follow you, too. It’s also important to note that people who have the same number of followers as they are following could follow you, too. Getting your name out there is a key way to gaining followers in the Pinterest world.

3)    Staying Active On Pinterest

If you want more followers on Pinterest, it is important for you to be active on Pinterest! You don’t need to spend hours a day pinning, you can keep it as simple as 15 to 20 minutes a day (although, it may be hard to stop). The more you pin, the more you follow, the more you engage and like, the more people will see you. Adding pins from your own site is a great way to gain publicity, too!
