Making The Most Of Your PINTEREST Boards

Many of you have found the fun and sometimes addiction that the social network called Pinterest can bring. I am here to share with you what I have learned to make the most of your Pinterest boards.

About six months ago I had about 345 followers and now I have 1,315 followers. Whether you want to build a following or not, Pinterest should be fun. If you are a blogger or own a business, well then I truly believe that making the most of your Pinterest can only help your blog or business.

Below is a photo of a few of my Pinterest boards. Here are some steps you can take to make your Pinterest page the best it can be:

ONE: Pinterest sets up their boards in rows of five. Make each row a theme. In doing so you keep your boards looking pleasing and keeps your ideas organized. Plus, people are visuals, keeping your boards organized allows it to look more visually pleasing as well as allows it to flow better.

TWO: Put the most important boards on top. In my case, I want my followers or new followers to see what I do as a blogger so my first row of boards are; A Vintage Nerd (photos from my blog and my book club), My Vintage Wardrobe (the outfits I have worn), Being Creative (the photo shoots I have done), My Reading Wishlist (all the books I would love to have), and British Mania (the things I love about the UK).

You will be able to tell a great deal about what I do as well as what I enjoy by just looking at my first row of five boards.

THREE: Choose topics that you love and are passionate about. Don't create boards because you think people will like them. This is YOUR Pinterest and it should reflect you!

FOUR: Change the cover pages of your boards once in a while. It keeps your boards looking fresh and not stagnant. You want people to keep coming back and not get bored of the same photos from a year ago. Feel free to change your titles as well. If you feel a title is not describing a board well enough, then change it. No need to feel you have to keep the same titles or cover pages.

I hope these simple tips will help you make the most of your Pinterest boards! I know that it has helped me keep Pinterest fun. If you would like to see more of my Pinterest boards you can look at them HERE

  3. These are some great tips. I get into the Pinterest mood from time to time, and in those periods I go crazy with adding new stuff. However, most of the time I just pin pictures from my blog and otherwise leave it alone. I think re-organizing my boards a bit may help me to be more interested in it, too.
