Pinterest Marketing: How To Get Pinterest Followers (13 STEPS!)
Check out the popular pins on Pinterest and comment on them. Make yourself so conspicuous in the comments section that people will want to follow you and monitor your pins. There is no better way of making yourself stand out than making a thoughtful comment or a brilliant joke about the pin. Just make sure you are not offending anyone in the comments that you make.
6. Avoid commenting too much on pins
In a bid to get more followers, people start commenting too much on the popular pins. They want to stand out from the crowd and make ten to twenty comments on a single pin. This will only work against you because Pinterest can deem your account as a bot run account and freeze it. Just be modest in your commenting and the followers will flock your way.
7. Tag other people in your pins and in comments
If you want to get the attention of masses, always make sure that you mention a popular user of Pinterest in your pins or in the comments sections. When someone makes a brilliant comment, don’t hesitate to @ them and compliment them for the same. They will follow you and your number will be considerably growing by day.
8. Incorporate other social media sites
Pinterest lets you connect your Google+ account, Facebook, Twitter and other social media accounts to your Pinterest account. This means that you can simultaneously post a pin to Pinterest and tweet it at the same time to let your followers on Twitter see it. Add your Pinterest link to the social media platforms as well and people will start following you.
9. Make good use of your flourishing boards
Take advantage of your most popular boards and place them strategically on top so that more people can access them. Many people prefer looking for popular boards rather than scavenging through the entire account. If you place your flourishing boards well, then your follower count will surely increase.
10. Contribute to relevant popular boards
Identify relevant boards and post quality pins to these boards. By relevant boards I mean boards that have topic and themes almost similar to the nature of your business. Be active in these boards and you will get more followers.
11. Follow back
Don’t be mean! Follow people who follow you back. Do not hesitate to follow strangers as well because some of them will eventually follow back and increase your follower count.
12. Aim at a certain number
Have a goal of the number of followers you need in a week or a month. When you have a number, it is easier to identify when you are doing the right things and when you have lagged behind in terms of effort. If you have a target of 50 followers a week for example, ensure you follow at least 100 people a week and hope that half will follow back.
13. Post enticing stuff
Don’t be that boring user who posts cliché images and photos. Look for enticing content from other social media sites and pin it to keep your followers entertained.
