How to increase your pinterest followers

 

Here is some ways which help to increase your pinterest followers

  1. Add the Pinterest Follow Button

The Pinterest follow button diverts website visitors to your Pinterest page, thereby attracting followers. This can be effective if you have a high-traffic website.

Install the button in several prominent places on your website and blog—the header, footer, sidebar, etc. Make it easy for people to find your brand page and convert them into followers.

To create your button, use the widget builder page on Pinterest or create a custom button that matches your branding.

 

  1. Add the Profile Widget

Similar to the Follow button, the profile widget also leads your website visitors to your Pinterest page. But you may find the profile widget more effective than the Follow button because it’s bigger and can display up to 30 of your latest pins

 

  1. Comment on Popular Pins

The Popular section on Pinterest consists of pins that have been repined, liked and commented on several times. Take advantage of this and get people to check out your own page by commenting on these pins.

Have a good look at the pin; study the image and the description and write a meaningful comment. You want to write more than a two-word comment like ‘‘Great Pin’’ or ‘‘Nice Find!’’ Show people you know and care about this subject by leaving a thoughtful comment. This will make people want to check out your page and follow you.

 

  1. Connect Your Social Networks

Connect your Facebook and Twitter accounts with your Pinterest account to attract your Facebook and Twitter friends and followers to your Pinterest account.

You can easily tweet your pins so your Twitter followers can see them and display your latest Pinterest activity in your Facebook friends’ and followers’ feeds. Choose the different types of activity you’d like people to see, and with a simple click they can visit your pins, check them out and follow you on Pinterest.

 

To help attract followers, you can also add a link to your Pinterest account in your other social media account bios.

 

  1. Find Friends from Other Social Networks

Another advantage of connecting your other social networks is you can find friends and connect with them.Connect your accounts and click on your business name in the top right corner of the screen. In the dropdown menu that appears, click on Find Friends. You can then choose the social networks you’ve connected to find friends and followers and follow them on Pinterest.

As you follow people you already have relationships with, they’ll be very likely to follow you back.

 

  1. Promote Your Individual Boards

Instead of following an entire profile, people prefer following boards on subjects they’re interested in. Work on getting followers for your most popular boards instead of the entire account.

Go through your brand page and look for your most popular boards and promote them to gain more followers.

 

  1. Contribute to Others’ Boards

A quick way to attract followers is to contribute to popular group boards that already have a lot of followers. When you contribute quality pins to these boards, their followers become your followers, too, if they like your pins.

Look for popular group boards and spend some time forming a relationship with the board owner or other contributors, then ask them to invite you to the board.

 

  1. Follow Others

Look for people with similar interests, follow them and a fraction of them will follow you back. Continue to follow the ones who follow you back and unfollow the ones who don’t. Repeat the process.

 

  1. Run Contests

It’s easy to gain followers when you run a Pinterest contest that offer an incentive or prize that’s sure to entice your target market to participate. Several tools exist to make Pin-it To Win It, Follow and Hashtag contests easy to manage.

 

  1. Keep Your Followers Happy

It’s not just about getting followers, it’s also about keeping them happy. Make the extra effort to keep your followers satisfied so they’ll continue following you instead of leaving you.

Here are a couple of ways to keep followers happy:

Don’t share everything at once: Instead of clouding your followers’ feeds with your pins all at once, time your pins to go out at regular intervals. You can easily do this by using a scheduling tool like Curalate.

Stick to one topic per board: One way to lose your board followers quickly is to share irrelevant pins to your boards. It’s okay to share lots of different topics on different boards, but make sure you stick to one topic per board to keep your followers happy and get
