How to Get Pinterest Famous

Have Authentic Content

Authentic Content

A lot of people posting on Pinterest post content that is not original. People are fond of posting repins and they are not catchy.

If you are creative and make content that has never been on Pinterest, you will compel a significant number of people and subsequently, your followers will increase. 

The materials that you post can range from brainy quotes, photos that are funny, authentic pictures and info-graphics. 

Other posts can increase your followers, but info-graphics are better because people will repin them more than usual posts increasing your chances of becoming famous.

Post Other People’s Content

Post

You will never have enough content to put on Pinterest if you don’t repin what other people post.

Repins allow you to have more presence on Pinterest and at the end of the day, you will have more people following you.  Having more followers is the surest way to becoming popular on the platform. 

Being popular gives you more chances to reach to a big number of people and communicate to them about a product you sell or a service that you offer for a fee. 

If you repin someone’s post, he will quickly notice you and start following your page.

Follow More People

Followers

Without following others you will not have followers. If you relax and wait for people to look for you on Pinterest, you may end up lacking fans.

Your aim is to get famous, and you should work hard to get followers on Pinterest.

If you follow people they will definitely follow you, ensure that you are following at least 10 people each day and you will be famous in a short time.

Don’t have time to do this? Consider a Pinterest bot – there are many out there.

Pinterest has a feature that allows you to get individuals who can follow you quickly and be using the feature to get more followers.

Have Presence

Your presence on Pinterest will determine whether you become famous.  If you set aside some time to be on the platform you will be able to network with more people and this in return helps you to grow your business.

Time is the most valuable resource and if you invest it well the reward will be hefty.

Get Creative

Creative

Naturally, some of us are more creative than others, but if you want to do really well with your Pinterest boards, you’ve got to sprinkle in a little bit of creativity as much as possible.

No, you can’t turn on your creative a game every day, but if you have a number of boring boards, you are going to put people off, and you aren’t going to get Pinterest famous anytime soon. O

ne of the ways that we recommend you being creative with Pinterest is to creatively name your boards, and try to keep the titles search-friendly, so that people can easily find your Pinterest profile.

We think that keeping your titles short and sweet is good and makes it a lot easier for people to find you.

Also, it’s worth tailoring your boards to things like your image if you have a brand on Pinterest, or your strengths whether it is interior design, or a passion for cats.

This way, people who are visiting your Pinterest profile for the first time can get a really good idea of what to expect from your page and can decide from your titles whether they want to stick around or not.

Of course, it should go without saying that offering interesting and unique content is going to land you a lot more followers than if you are just being generic with your boards.

Use Social Media

Social Media

Yes, we know that Pinterest is social media, but being able to incorporate your Pinterest profiles with other profiles that you’ve got out there is inherent to your success and fame on Pinterest.

The best thing about Pinterest is that it allows for Facebook, Google+, and Twitter integration, which means that you can easily reach beyond the initial site and connect with more of your community.

Try to post the most enticing boards to a number of different social platforms to encourage followers and other community members to join your Pinterest page.

If you have a solid following elsewhere online, then there is a good chance that they are going to want to check out your content when they realize that you have a Pinterest page.

Just remember that the more value you put into your content, the more people are going to see a reason for following you on Pinterest.

Hashtag Everything

Hashtags

One of the best pieces of advice that we can give you is to never underestimate the power of the hashtag.

Yes, you’re probably sick of hashtags at this point, because they have been around for a long time now, and it feels like you see them everywhere, even offline.

However, one of the reasons why you see them everywhere is because they work, and they are an inherent part of your social media growth strategy, no matter what platform you’re using.

They got their start over on Twitter, but they have since gone beyond the popular social network and transcended the majority of social media platforms out there, meaning that if you are incorporating the right ones into your strategy for Pinterest, you are going to fast track your way to success and fame.

Hashtags make it really easy for people to find your content and start following your boards.

When it suits, we recommend that you use your hashtags to better relate your content to your community, but try not to overdo it, because there is such a thing as being spammed by hashtags, and if people feel like you are just adding hashtags to your content for the sake of growing its reach, they’re going to be put off.

You also need to make sure that you find a good balance between popular hashtags, and hashtags that are not as well known.

Popular hashtags are going to be helpful for bridging the gap between your content and a huge community, but it also means that your content is going to get swallowed up in the crowd, and you might not encourage as many followers to check out your Pinterest page as you thought.

Another thing to think about with hashtags is that you can create a branded one.

If you have your brand on Pinterest, then you might want to make the most of this and come up with a hashtag that is unique and creative, and is something that your audience can associate with your brand.

Cater to the Masses

While this isn’t going to always apply to your Pinterest profile, it’s always a good idea to check the popular page on Pinterest, so that you can get a better idea of what interests and trends are out there.

If you find something that goes well with your interests, or your brand, then we suggest that you start filling up your boards with content that is similar, while at the same time maintaining your purpose and identity.

Doing this is going to increase traffic to your boards, so that you can fast track your way to success.

Make Sure You’re a Good Friend

Good Friend

If you want to have more followers on your Pinterest page and checking out your content, then you’ve got to return the favor, and dish some love out in return.

Finding and following other people within your community is going to result in these people returning the favor and following your page.

If it doesn’t, then all you have to do is find pins that you’d like, and leave comments on them, so that the owner of the pin can see.

The more you do this, the more exposure your page is going to get, so commenting frequently on popular pages is going to increase your visibility and attract a wider audience.

Making the most of the fact that Pinterest is a community at the end of the day is definitely going to increase your chances of doing really well with your own content.

Don’t Forget Your Website

Website

Pinterest makes it really easy for you to connect your website with your page, and the majority of sites out there are going to let you run a plugin that directly links your Pinterest page to any posts that you publish.

If you have a loyal community elsewhere online, then this of course makes sense to invite them to your page on Pinterest.

You can also add a profile widget to other social networks and sites, and you can even display a little bit of your Pinterest boards over on your website, which is going to encourage people to go and check it out your Pinterest itself.

If you already have a pretty well-established flow of traffic going to your website on a regular basis, then this is one way to take advantage of it.

Boost Your Pages that are Popular

There are a lot of people out there that prefer to follow a specific board instead of a user, because they don’t want to saturate their feed with material that they won’t end up looking at.

With this thought in mind, you’ve got to think about which of your boards are doing well, and which ones aren’t, and focus on capitalizing on the boards that are doing well.

If you put more time and effort into these boards, then you are highly likely to find people that love interacting with them and are going to want to interact with your content on a long-term basis.

Quality over Quantity

Quality Over Quantity

If you are just starting out growing your Pinterest page, you are probably excited about the prospect of connecting with the community that loves your boards, and you’ve most likely spent a lot of time producing and uploading content.

There’s nothing wrong with this, but you do have to keep in mind that quality over quantity is really important.

While you might have the time at this point to put out a lot of Pinterest boards, and a lot of content on them, if the content isn’t adding value to your page, and it isn’t encouraging people to interact with more of your content, then it’s not serving the right purpose.

We recommend that you take time to create original images, whether this is through your smartphone, or by using a digital camera, and prove to your audience that you are passionate about what you’re producing and you aren’t just trying to produce content that is going to get you well known.

For people that use Pinterest, it’s all about value, and considering you have so many other people to compete with out there, if you aren’t bringing value to the table, then you aren’t going to garner a lot of interest.

Quantity Isn’t All that Bad

So, we have just finished talking to you all about how quality over quantity is the way to approach your Pinterest growth, but at the end of the day, quantity is something to think about as well.

Yes, if you are just pinning images left and right that you haven’t really put a lot of time and effort into, people are going to take notice of this in a negative way, and not want to spend too much time on your boards.

However, if you have managed to figure out your niche, and you have managed to crack the code and figure out a way to produce more of the same content that people really like, there’s not really a limit to how much you can upload.

Just make sure that you figure out what people love the most and want to see more of on your page before you do this, otherwise they’re going to see you as spammy.

Make the Most of Special Seasons

If the holiday season is just around the corner, or we are just about to celebrate the 4th of July, then you need to make the most of this, and tailor your content to what’s going on in the world.

We think that posting fun ideas that are relevant to an upcoming holiday season is going to increase your popularity on Pinterest and get people in the door that might not have otherwise thought to look at your boards before.

Once you’ve got them in the door and they see that you have content that they want to interact with, they’re more likely to stick around, and you’ve got yourself a bunch of new long-lasting Pinterest followers.

Get the Timing Right

Timing

Not only do you have to think about how much content you are producing, and whether it is high-quality or not, you’ve also got to think about when you upload it.

Say you get up in the morning and you make a morning coffee, and the first thing you do is start to produce and edit Pinterest content that you plan on uploading before lunch time.

This is a great approach, but if you aren’t uploading your content at just the right time, you could be wasting valuable opportunities.

The thing about Pinterest is that like any other social media out there, your audience is going to have a specific time that they are online the most, and you want to capitalize on this.

Make the most of Pinterest analytics to work out when the majority of your audience is browsing through their Pinterest feeds and is more likely to see your content.

Otherwise, it could end up getting lost in the ether and you’ve wasted an entire morning coming up with fun creative Pinterest ideas that nobody is going to see.

Once you get famous on Pinterest, you won’t have to worry about this as much, but while you are still trying to get big, it’s a pretty important part.

Feel free to also play around with a few times as well, to see when you get the most amount of engagement.

Be Original

Be Original

There’s absolutely nothing wrong with copying ideas that you see out there on other people’s Pinterest boards, but if you can figure out how to be original with your Pinterest content, this is going to help you stand out, and find the community that you want to be interacting with.

Yes, Pinterest is somewhere where you can repost things all the time, and we think that you should be doing this for the most part within your niche, but it doesn’t hurt to be original as well.

The people that have gone on to do really well with their Pinterest boards have done so because they have come up with something unique and creative, that they haven’t copied from anywhere else.

Keep this in mind when you are producing your content, and once you have found your niche like we mentioned above, it’s going to be a lot easier to achieve this.

Your Pinterest Account Should Be Linked to Your Other Social Accounts

If you have linked your Pinterest account with other social accounts such as Instagram, Twitter and Facebook more friends and relatives will access you.

This will give you more fame and you will be able to market your brand easily.

Being on Pinterest is vital for any business and if you want to grow your enterprise to, the next level it is high time you join the platform.
