Pinterest to get more traffic to your website

Pinterest is different from other social media and you need to understand how it works to get the most out of Pinterest.

You can follow users and they can follow you but it is not really about being friends or followers.

Pinterest is above all an image social media. It is not just images though as you can post videos and graphics are really popular. You need to post eye-catching images though as people are posting on Pinterest constantly. You only get one chance of being seen unless you get repined.

You can open a free account easily and then create what is called a “board” to post your own pins and other people’s items that you are repining.

It is recommended that you open separate boards if you have different niches. People interested in your recipes postings will not be interested in your digital marketing posts and vice versa.

You have to set-up your boards with the proper keywords in order to attract the right audience to your board and pins.
