I asked some fellow bloggers their tips for improving Pinterest presence and that is the feedback I got from them.
I have been a member from Pinterest from the beginning when you could only get to it by invitation. I was hooked from day one. Who isn’t guilty of spending countless hours looking for tips, latest products, quotes or simply beautiful images spread throughout its countless amazing boards.
After becoming open to the public it rapidly grew into a powerful social media for entertainment, but also for business. Individuals and company started to realize that they could make use of powerful images to promote their services and products to expand their markets.

Pinterest has no borders. You can pin from collages to videos. However, “what” and “how” you post can influence how far you reach with your boards.
For this month’s Tip Tuesday blog, I asked that two fellow bloggers wrote tips on how to use Pinterest. Make sure you check their blogs (and pin their images too).
Kaila from Healthy Helper
The easiest way I know to get more things pinned on Pinterest is to make an eye catching graphic to go with EVERY post. Doesn’t matter if the post wouldn’t normally merit a picture, make one that says the title! This way whatever you are sharing with your readers can be more easily shared by them to the rest of the world. Quoting important or profound things from your post and creating a graphic is also a great way to get pinned and draw more people to your blog!

“Social media is a wonderful tool for bloggers. I spend my own personal time on Pinterest. I also get a lot of visitors directed to my blog from Pinterest. I know I’m not alone in this!
I would say that keeping a nice Pinterest profile page is probably a worthwhile endeavor. By making your profile look attractive and clean, you’re more likely to get people to want to follow you and see what you have to offer.
I’ve spent some time over the last couple weeks making my Pinterest profile a little bit more aesthetically pleasing.”

Frequently we update our branding, go self-hosted, etc. Make sure that your Pinterest boards follow your evolution. Update the link to blog entries when necessary and do not be afraid of reordering your pins whenever you consider necessary.
If you are a frequent pinner like me, you may also want to create separate boards for pins from your blogs/products and others. This will help your readers connect to your content.
Last but not least, Community Boards are an awesome way to get connected to other bloggers and expand your reach through the tool.
