For the last few months, I have been reading everything I can find on the topic of Pinterest Marketing Strategies.
My main goal has been to find ways to increase Pinterest traffic and blog traffic!
So, I decided to invest in two paid courses and a few free courses to get a jump start. I’m going to share five tips that have made my numbers double and triple in some areas!
Tip One: Take Pinteresting Strategies
The course where I saw a HUGE increase in traffic was Pinteresting Strategies by Carly!
A few stats since taking Pinteresting Strategies:
- My Pinterest Views have tripled.
- My Pinterest Clicks and Saves have doubled.
- My blog traffic has skyrocketed from less than 1K to nearly 5K most of which came from Pinterest!
I downloaded Pinteresting Strategies and completed the course over the span of two days.
After reading through the first few lessons, I decided to put her tips into practice.
Within a few hours, one new pin had over 1,000 views. Typically, getting that many views would take over a week for me. That is how powerful and amazing her tips are!
The best part? Her strategies are simple, straight forward and SO EASY TO UNDERSTAND. Many times when reading about Pinterest Marketing, I felt like I was reading a different language. Can anyone else relate?
Of course, I would love for you to grab a copy of Pinteresting Strategies through my link. I’m confident that you will LOVE it!
Tip 2: Make Sure You Have Claimed Your Website on Pinterest
Confession time. I waited much to long to tackle this step. However, as soon as I claimed my website, my numbers did another incredible boost. I gained over 5,000 views by doing this.

Tip 3: Use Group Boards!
I feel like this step gets overlooked or gets a bad rap. However, since I’m sharing what has worked for me I have to include this. Group boards have been a huge boost to my Pinterest traffic.
Note: I utilize both keyword specific group boards and general group boards. However, I always pin to keyword specific group boards first and then pin to general group boards. This method seems to work great for me!
Tip 4: Use Simple Design
I find that the more simple my pins are, the more traction they get. I really think this is because 9 times out of 10 our pins are only viewed for a second or two before users scroll on by. You want your pin to stand out from the crowd. Think simple designs, bright colors and lighter backgrounds.
Tip 5: Try New Keywords
I think it’s important to have specific keywords that you are regularly pinning for, however, always try new keywords that pertain to your topic. This will help give your followers new insight and allow you to expand your reach.
