Easier said than done really. I've noticed several users who've done everything just about right yet they have about 2 followers despite posting over 300 pins! Makes you wonder.

Personally, I run these two accounts - one is a huge success with thousands of followers and I figure this is because the topic is an interesting one. The other one - and more business-like - can be said to be more of a niche topic and thus far I've registered 300 followers. This is the one I would particularly love to boost. Any ideas would be welcome.

Food for thought though: There are times 300 followers are better than 6,000 if the thousands are not converting as much as the niche 300. Social numbers play some kind of trick though- the larger the number, the more followers you'll attract - fact. The conversion can be taken care of after amassing these numbers. Any out-of-the-book tricks apart from the usual - large, appealing images, posting often, commenting and what not to attract the masses into a not-so-interesting topic? Would love to hear. Thanks!

Have you tried using the your niche keywords to be individual boards and then pinning under each of these. I find I attract visitors by doing this.

Also, add a pin it button to your blog and website - it is simple and adds another call to action to share social media wise.

You can see how to do it here... https://developers.pinterest.com/on_...in_it_buttons/

I have to say Pinterest is the one social platform I can't get my head around. I pin fairly regularly but only have the 1 follower (pathetic I know). Anyone got good tips for attracting followers? I do nothing other than pin my own content every week or so. Should I be following and repinning other people stuff too?

Pinterest Consultant will the take the time to guide you through this website to show you how to navigate easily. Iíll give you quick overview and then dig deeper on how some of the features work in a separate tutorial.

I will give you a tour guide of the following:


This is the grid layout which shows you rows and column of boards that Iíve created. Because Pinterest adjusts the layout based on browser window size youíll notice that the number of columns may be different from one personís screen to another.


This home feed shows you a plathora of pins (remember pins means images) from pinners you are following. The pins nearer to the top of the page are the newest pins that you and other pinners are pinning.

Yes you are right on this one, I noticed that those images that are pinned to maps can be easily searched.
