Having a solid social media marketing strategy in place for Pinterest is important for bloggers! It can really help you to grow your traffic! Today, I’m going to share a few tips that helped me grow my blog.
I remember the minute my friends told me about Pinterest. I signed up.
Pinning became somewhat of an Olympic sport…I even had a pin go viral way back when. But, the dust settled and I honestly thought my days of pinning were over.
Then I stumbled on a few bloggers who shared their Pinterest stories.
Had I missed a crucial opportunity for growing as a blogger? Yes. Yes, I had.
I read a free course, downloaded a book on the topic and put what I learned to use.
By implementing just a few habits with Pinterest my numbers now only grew- they doubled and now have nearly tripled in less than a few months!
Here’s some stats:
I started with roughly 6,900 views on Pinterest at the end of May.
By the beginning of August, I had reached 19,000 views. And now, my number vary anywhere from 60k to 90k! It changes due to algorithms.
Pretty cool, right?
But, here’s the thing. While several tricks helped, I noticed that one specific tip is what became my personal game changer.
Pinterest Groups! And not just any groups. Viral groups targeted for bloggers like me. These were groups with 10,000 or more bloggers who participated daily.
TIP: I highly recommend checking out Top Viral Blogs on Pinterest. She has a plethora of viral boards.
