Another common question for those business owners getting started with Pinterest is “How do I get others to pin my content?” or “How do I get more clicks to my website”? Both are the same question, no matter how you ask.
But first, I’ve gotta let you in on a little secret. You HAVE to understand this if you are going to be successful with Pinterest.
Pinterest is NOT a get rick quick platform. It is slow moving like a small snowball rolling down the hill and keeps building on itself the more it goes.
That being said, lets get started!
4 Ways to Get People to Share your Content on Pinterest
1. You need to be consistent
Above all, consistency is the KEY to growing with Pinterest. The BEST way to be consistent is to pin 5-15 minutes a day 5 days a week. But if you go out of town a few days here or there, it’s OK to miss those days. However, every other week of the year, be consistent.
Wake up in the morning, and spend 10 minutes pinning before starting your workday. Set a timer so you get off on time.
2. Share Others Content
Guys, I can’t not tell you enough how IMPORTANT this is with Pinterest. To be honest, it was my very first post I wrote because it was so important. So click here to read more about why you should be sharing others content.
3. Sprinkle in Some of your Content
So how do you actually get CLICKS to your website? You build a powerful profile with Pinterest doing the first 2 things and then sprinkling in some of your own pins here and there. For beginners, you should pin 80% of others’ content to 20% of your content.
4. Create CLICKABLE Pins
If you find yourself getting a ton of impressions, re-pins, and views, then you need to work on making your pins clickable.
What is that?
Most importantly, they need to leave an impression making the user want to read more and know more.
Above all, make sure the image and words are telling them what they’ll learn when they click your pin. Don’t give them the answer to their question in the pin. You want them to go to our website to get the answer.
Pinterest isn’t about you at all. It’s about the users. So if you want to get people to pin your content, then you need to be pinning for THEM. Got it?
