6. Find Friends From Others Social Networks
Pinterest makes it easy to find friends through other social networks such as Facebook, Twitter, Google +, Tumblr, etc. Simply click on your business name in the top right corner of the screen. Click on “Find Friends” in the drop-down menu.

Another great way to gain exposure and followers is to contribute to other boards. Search for popular groups and spend time developing a relationship with the board owner. When you have established a solid relationship, then ask them to invite you to the board.

8. Follow Others

Make sure to follow others relevant to your niche. I do follow people with the same interest, but only a fraction of them will follow you back. Give it a couple of days and go ahead and unfollow those who did not follow back. Continue to repeat the process.


9. Run Contest

The contest should be a key component of your Pinterest marketing strategy. Make to host a contest on the topic you will be pinning to your account.

10. Create a blog board

I create a board filled with all my blog articles. Having my blog articles on board makes it easy for my followers to stay updated with any new content.

The Blog Post Should Include:

  • A brief summary of the article
  • An excellent image
  • A link directly to your blog

Another important factor in gaining followers in Pinterest is by having great images. Always keep in mind that Pinterest is all about visuals.

I help Etsy sellers turn their passion into profits is a rewarding and fulfilling endeavor.
