Pinterest group boards are the secret to boost traffic to your blog even you do not have massive followers on Pinterest.

What Is Pinterest?

Pinterest is a free website that requires signing up to use just like any other social networks. What makes Pinterest different is it is more visual. What do users do? Users create boards base on their interest or business. They will then pin those pins to the respective boards.

Here is some Pinterest Statistics that you might be interested to read. Base on January 1, 2018, the total number of monthly active Pinterest users are  175 million {source}  

As I am in blogging niche, all of my board are about blogging: such as Blogging Tips, Social Media, etc. This is how my Pinterest boards look like:

Building Pinterest Followers?

Unlike Facebook or Instagram, you do not need to wait until you have a lot of followers to see your result. Instead, what you need to do is to join group boards to extend your reach to other users.

If a group board you joined have 10,000 followers, your pin will be shown to them. Think about it, how many people you will reach if you join 50 group boards or more. If these users repin your pin to their boards, imagine how many people you have reached with just one pin.

Thus, it will help you:

  1. Reach potential audiences who are interested in your blog
  2. Drive more traffic to your website even you have very little followers
  3. To grow your Pinterest followers (My Pinterest followers have been growing steadily ever since I implemented this strategy.)

Group board owners will post their board on Facebook. If you are interested to contribute just have to place your email and Pinterest URL in the comment. Do remember to follow the board owner.

Steps to Join The Pinterest Group Board

First, decide on the group board that you are interested to join. Read the requirement on how to join the group board. Some group board owner requires you to email them, some need you to fill up a form and some just need to comment on their latest pin. 

One very important thing you must do first before you contact the owner is to follow their Pinterest account. This is to allow the owner to add you in. If you did not do that, they will not be able to add you to the group board.

If you are required to email the owner, do be nice and polite. I have included a template in the 100 Pinterest Group Board list for you to use. You can sign up here:

How to Schedule Your Pinterest Pins

There are two ways to schedule your Pinterest Pins.

1. Manual pinning

Manual pinning is very straight forward. All you need is your computer or mobile phone. Log into your Pinterest account and start pinning.

No rocket science here. Just make sure you spread out the time you pin. For example, pin 2 pins per hour through out the day. My advise, just log into your Pinterest account whenever you are free and start pinning.

2. Automated Pinning

This is the method I am using right now.

I am using Tailwind to help me do my pinning.

What I like about Tailwind is that I can schedule my pins one week or even one month ahead of time. Taiwind will also tell you when is the best time to pin.

With Tailwind I know when my audiences are most active and by automating my pins I have a lot of time to do my other blogging stuff.

If you are interested to give Tailwind a try, I am giving you a $15 Tailwind Plus to get you started – Yes I am Interested

In conclusion,

Be it manual or automated pinning, in order to be successful in Pinterest, consistency is the key.
