Hey guys 👋 let me just insert some screenshots to start of this blogpost cause I have been documenting the blow up on my Twitter account (which you should definitely be following btw 😜 …if you aren’t already 👀). Let me just say though, to some of you hardcore pinners 📌 / social media queens & kings this might not be a “blow-up” but for someone who had roughly 100-200 monthly views since the moment they joined Pinterest till now it IS a big deal. So all I wanna do in this post is share what I’ve been doing to improve my Pinterest cause a lot of people on Twitter have been asking me 😊
PIN PIN PIN
This has to be the most important one. If you look at the above screenshots carefully you’ll see that as my # of pins increased 📈 so did the # views & I have to stress this to you guys. You will not 🙅 get views to your pins/profile/page unless you are actively using Pinterest! Its so important to literally pin as much as you can. I don’t have any specific guideline as to how many hours ⏰ you should be spending pinning daily because what I do, is go through the home feed, the explore section & literally pin away. You obviously only pin stuff that you’re actually interested in rather than just random bullcr*p.
This is what the last 7 days looked like, as you can see all 4 arrows have increased in % & this can only mean good stuff right?! 👀 I’m not sure what impressions actually means but its an important stat as far as I’m aware 🤔 & just look at the increase in my avg. daily viewers! 🙌
These screenshots show the same thing as the previous ones, but these ones are over a 14 day period rather than a 7 day period to show you guys a bit more of the actual trend. Just look at the # avg. daily impressions 😱
AAAAAND finally here you can CLEARLY see when I realised I made a Pinterest account 😂 like I’m not even joking guys I completely forgot I even had a Pinterest account up until Mid-September 🗓. Just look at the # of avg. daily viewers 😱 that % is absolutely crazy to me!
Know your audience
This is another really important thing guys, you have to know what kind of things your audience actually wants to see 👁👁 (wants to see you pin!) There are analytics of this on Pinterest too! Where it basically tells you about the language, gender etc as shown in the screenshots below 👇. The great thing about this is that you can pin things which you KNOW will appeal to your audience
This is something I haven’t even done on all my pins 😅 as you can see below my MOST shared/saved pins don’t actually have descriptions. I mean the 4 that I re-pinned do, but out the 6 pins that are MINE only 1 of them has a description 🙈. I know, I know here I am writing about Pinterest & I don’t even follow ALL the rules, but do these “blogger rules” even exist? 🤔 All I know is that even without following all these “rules” my Pinterest has been improving daily so 💃
What is this ratio you say? 🙇 well out of the 508 pins I’ve currently got pinned 📌 across my 27 boards only 21 of them are actually MY pins. YEP. Thats right 487 of those are just re-pins. BUT it helps you guys, re-pinning lots of other pins helps with your page views a LOT. Especially if you’re still starting of on Pinterest & I’m sure you’ll read this piece of advice everywhere, as literally every blogger tells you to PIN, PIN, PIN & PIN some more! Its so crucial to get the ratio of pinning your own pins/re-pinning other pins right & once you have constant traffic coming to your account you can always increase the # of your own pins!
You can do it 💪
Looking at these stats is what has been giving me the motivation to carry on doing what I’ve been doing this past month 🗓 & I hope reading this post has motivated you guys too (if you needed motivation) or helped you guys in some way!
