Now that I have my blog up and running I’m excited to share monthly tips and tricks for Pinterest. My goal is to help you get your pins pinned, increase your Pinterest traffic and get as much traffic to your website as possible. Today I’m sharing a few of my favorite Pinterest tips and the latest trends for July. And, this means two things for you- start pinning and have fun because together we are going to grow your Pinterest account!
Pinterest Tips and Trends – July 2018
What can you do to help your account continue to grow?
Tip #1 – Tribes, Tribes, and more Tribes!
I am a huge believer in TRIBES!!!! I especially feel this way now more than ever since Board Booster is no longer in service. I believe tribes will have a great impact on Pinterest accounts. Reach out on Facebook groups to see if there are any tribes in your niche that you can join.
Tip #2 – Pin Size
Create pinnable images that are the recommended size of 600 x 900. Also, make one your normal long size as well. You never know when Pinterest will change again:)
Tip #3 – Pinterest Board Descriptions
I can’t say this enough – Make sure your board descriptions are filled with KEY/SEO’d WORDS. Take a few minutes this week to update your board descriptions.
Tip #4 – Live Pinning
Pinterest is wanting you to be engaged. The days of scheduling it and forgetting it are gone. Open the Pinterest on your phone and take 5 minutes a day to live pin. Remember you can do this in your car while you are waiting to pick up kids. You can do this while you are waiting for your gas to pump. You can do this while you are taking a bath. We all have 5 minutes to devote to our accounts growth.
Tip #5 – Hashtags
Include 3-5 hashtags with each image that you pin.
