Use Pinterest to promote blog

Introduction

If you’re like most bloggers, your number one goal in life is to drive more traffic to your blog. The problem is that it’s difficult to figure out how to do so. You may have tried advertising, writing blog posts about other blogs, and even following people on social media who post interesting things. None of these strategies seem to be working for you, but you are guaranteed success when you add Pinterest into the mix! 

In this blog post, I will explain why Pinterest can help drive traffic for your blog and give some tips about how best to use it as part of an overall online content marketing strategy.

How to get traffic from Pinterest.

The first step to getting traffic from Pinterest is creating a profile on the site. Next, add pins directly from your blog so that visitors can see them on Pinterest—this will allow them to find additional content relevant to their interests and potentially share it with friends or family members who might also find it interesting! 

How to use pinterest images in posts and emails.

Pinterest is a great place to find images that you can use in your blog posts and emails.

There are three ways you can use images from Pinterest:

  • In your blog post, add the image as an image widget at the end of the text. This is what I do with all my blog posts, but it’s up to you if you want to do this or not. If it helps people get through their reading faster, then go ahead and include an image within each post.
  • I recommend adding at least one picture per paragraph so readers have something interesting to look at while they read! You can also use captions for these images if there’s something specific about them—like an animal or location—that would make sense when coupled with whatever else is written below them! 
  • Also, remember that when adding new content into WordPress using HTML tags; make sure its height/width matches up perfectly with the Pinterest image size.

Pinterest is now the world’s most popular social network.

Social Network

Pinterest is now the world’s most popular social network, with more than 500 million users per month. According to a recent report by eMarketer, more than one in four U.S. adults use Pinterest! And these numbers only continue to grow as the platform becomes more popular and sophisticated.

It’s no surprise that if you want to drive traffic to your blog from Pinterest, then you should consider using this platform as well.

Creating a profile on Pinterest is free.

Creating a profile on Pinterest is free. You can create an account and add your blog to your profile, then connect it so that you can start pinning content from your blog to Pinterest.

Adding pins to your blog is easy.

Pinterest is a great way to build traffic and engagement with your blog, but it’s important that you don’t spam the platform. If you have a lot of pins on Pinterest then you risk losing out on new followers and readers as people unfollow or even delete your account from their feed.

You can add pins easily by adding a button to any page of your blog. You can also add a pin button to any email signature that you have created using MailChimp, AWeber, or GetResponse. You could even use Google Webmaster Tools as well if this is something that interests you!

Pinterest is a visual social network, which means it’s all about images. Pinterest has over 500 million users and is growing faster than any other social network. It’s also the world’s most popular social media site for women under 35 years old—and it’s not even close!

Pinterest allows you to collect and curate content from all over the web in one place. This makes it great for finding new blog posts or articles that will help you build your audience on Pinterest in addition to driving traffic back onto your blog.

Create a separate Pinterest profile for your blog.

You can use Pinterest to promote your blog in a variety of ways. The first step is to create a separate Pinterest profile for your blog. This will allow you to share content from it on other social media platforms, like Facebook or Twitter.

Create an avatar that is professional and easy to find. Make sure the profile is linked to your website so people can find out more about its purpose and value when they visit it! It should also include keywords related to what type of content you publish, such as “how-to” articles or recipes; these will be important factors when choosing who might follow along with their interests based on those keywords! 

Finally, link back directly into your blog post whenever possible because users always appreciate being able to keep track of where they left off while browsing through all sorts of different topics which might interest them but aren’t necessarily related specifically to anything particular yet.

Review your boards and pins.

The first thing you should do is check your boards and pins. 

  • Are they consistent? 
  • Is there enough quality content in each one? 

If you’re not sure, ask yourself if this is what you want to be doing with your blog.

Once you’ve answered those questions, then it’s time to start pinning some pins! But be careful: don’t overdo it with hashtags or images, because users will start ignoring them as spammy content. Also make sure that each pin has a link back to the original source of information—this helps people find more information about whatever topic they’re learning about from reading something on Pinterest!

Don’t pin too much content from other Pinterest users.

  • Don’t pin too much content from other Pinterest users.
  • Don’t be spammy.
  • Pin content that isn’t relevant to your blog and your target audience.

Study successful bloggers’ Pinterest pages.

You can use Pinterest to promote your blog by looking at the boards and pins of successful bloggers.

  • Look at their boards. The first thing you should do is look at a few of their most popular boards, and see what they’re pinning there. This will give you an idea of what topics are important to this person or company.
  • See how many people follow them on Twitter or Instagram, as well as any other social media platform they might have accounts on (Facebook, LinkedIn).
  • See how many followers each individual has on Twitter/Instagram, along with any other platforms where they could be found online (LinkedIn)

Give your boards interesting names.

Give your board names that are relevant to your blog. 

Give them names that are relevant to the theme of your blog.

 For example: if you write about parenting tips on how not to make your kids hate their lives by trying too hard (i.e., “How To Be A Good Parent”), then it would make sense for one board dedicated entirely to how not-to-make-yourself-hate-yourself topics like this one would be called something like.

Be sociable with other Pinners.

  • Follow other pinners who are interested in your topic.
  • Comment on their pins and boards.
  • Re-pin their pins.

Check your stats

Stats are the best way to see how many people are visiting your blog, what they’re doing on it, and where they come from.

How do I find my stats? 

You’ll see a list of categories in which you can find your statistics:

  • Visitors – total number of visitors over time 
  • Traffic Sources – sources that drive traffic to your blog

Pinterest is a great way to promote your blog, but it’s not the only one. You can use Pinterest for all of these things:

Pinterest is a great tool for promoting your blog. It’s free, it’s easy to use, and it has all the functionality you need to grow your audience. But if you’re just getting started with Pinterest, the above tips can get your the most out of this popular site.
