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!
