Introduction To Pinterest

Millions of people use Pinterest every day. When people search, they see a different pin with beautiful designs and very attractive.

Next hack for traffic to your site. If you want your pin go viral, add “save it” or “pin it” button. If anyone sees your pin then they can click on the “pin it” button and it saves for them.
Best time for a pin
My Next hack about pin timing. If you are posting during the weekend then the best time to target is 8 to 11 PM. And If you are posting your pin during the week then try to post top subjects of the day.
Importance of Niche
Start searching on Pinterest around the topic of your niche. I think it’s important when you write content for features that you know what people want to read. You need to write what kind of content people will be searching for. After that start creating a bunch of things related to your niche, topics. You need to create boards to very specific ones on the areas that you want to focus on your website. Starting from 10 boards but then add more and more content to your website.
If you’re a beginner with a new Pinterest account, you need to build a lot of new boards. In all of your boards save popular pins from other sites to your new boards. When you save any of your pins to the boards, make sure to save at least 20-30 popular pins.
Importance of Group Boards
The next one is you have to find group boards that you can join on the Pinterest platform. Try to find all of the different group boards similar to your niche some of which may or may not allow contributors so if you find any group which they allow you should join them. And it is very important because in groups you can share your pin and people repin your pin, from the Pinterest search bar you can find group boards then open each one of them separately to be able to find the number of followers that particular board and you have an email address that you can use to go ahead and ask to join this board.
Advantage of Trends & Seasons
In the end, my last and best hack take advantage of trends and seasons. Your Pinterest traffic is highly related to seasons, holidays, Christmas, Mother’s day public events, and trends. Following trends can grow your traffic. It’s easy to see the search trends on Pinterest or you will be notified by the platform they send you emails which trends are coming. Get ready for upcoming trends and post regularly your pin that’s all…!0
