Today’s post will be about how to get more pinterest followers. I will be sharing how I was able to increase my pinterest followers from 4k in October 2018 to 25k+ and still counting in 2019. I know you are asking why I’m writing this post because most African fashion sites don’t normally give this kind of information. Well, I have noticed that pinterest drives in the bulk of my traffic and to get that much traffic,you must have quality content and loads of followers.
What is pinterest?
Pinterest is a social media network which is used for discovering the world. It allows users to visually pin or post images and videos to their boards.
How to get more pinterest followers
Getting followers on pinterest is not easy. It requires hard work and loads of pinning especially when it is a source off traffic for your website. The bulk of my website visitors is mainly from pinterest as I earlier stated. So, I do pin a lot.
How I increased my followers
I actually started using pinterest in late 2017 but my interest in it was 0 as I was just downloading stuff on my new phone. My interest in it rekindled again in early 20l8 and guess why?
My brother was going to get married in late August 2018 so obviously my go to network for new fashion and styles for wedding guest was pinterest. I started pinning stuff on my board. And then I decided I wanted other users to see the stuffs I pin on my board. Below I’m going to show you my strategies.
Follow and unfollow strategy
I developed a follow and unfollow strategy. This strategy helped me immensely in gaining lots of my followers. I followed lots of people who were following accounts in my niche.
Set a target number to follow daily
When using the following and unfollow strategy, it is important to set a target number you will be following. This helps psych your mind up for the task aheard of you. I set a daily target of 300 follows. I know it’s a lot but the good news is ,you don’t have to do any huge task to follow people. Just tap the follow icon and you are good to go.
Now, after following my target number of followers,I wait till the next day and check out those who followed back. Here,I don’t straight away unfollow those who followed me. I unfollow only those who don’t follow back.Now,for my second unfollow strategy,when I see that the number of people I’m following is huge,the only way to cut them off is to unfollow at least 70% of them. Crazy right? We dont want people who visit your page to think that you are desperate for followers. Do we? I guess not.My opinion tho. Let me know what you think of this in the comments section
Pin at least 50 times a day
You heard me and I’m even being generous here (lol). Some people pin as much as 200 times a day so 50 is not that much. Pin stuff that you are passionate about to make the pinning less tedious .
So I did all these manually everyday for the last six months and I think my hard work is paying off. I have stopped the follow and unfollow strategy currently. About 150 to 200 people follow me daily. You can also check this blog here for more strategies. She has strategies for also monetizing your blog.
I am hoping to get 40k by the end of this month and do you know what that calls for? Yes! More pinning. You can check out my pinterest account here
