5 Things Businsses Need to Do on Pinterest

Hi, lovelies we’ve all been hearing about the changes being rolled out on Pinterest in 2018. Have you seen the new layout yet? What is what and what do I need to do??

Well, let me help with that. I just watched the Facebook live video with Tailwind and Pinterest. There were two gals who worked at each place answering questions and dishing on the ins and outs of what you should be doing on Pinterest. Here is the link to watch it and it is gold! A bloggers Pinterest dream! this post does contain affiliate links so I may earn a small commision if you make a purchase. All reviews are my own.

There are so many things that I was happy to hear that I was doing right and things I have never even thought of I can’t wait to start doing. I will add a quick list of what I took away from it. But I really suggest taking the time and watching the video just so you can get all of the answers from the pros.

It is over an hour but well worth it I promise! I would love to hear your thoughts on the video comment below after you watch it. This is not a Pinterest strategy post it is just to clear up some questions I have been seeing people asking about.

5 Things to Do to Be Seen on Pinterest

1) pin as many times a day as you want. 5 or 100 as long as you are consistent. I have been pinning 75 per day using Tailwind scheduler so I will stick to this. Read this post I wrote to learn more about scheduled pins ๐Ÿ™‚

2) looping is ok. Pinning the same pin to the same board again. Say like once a month. She did say to change the description though and make sure it’s relevant. But not to do it too many times because you do not want people to unfollow you.

3) the first 5 pins a day are important but not the most important thing. SEO is still the best practice to get seen the most. So try and have 5 quality pins first. So I am Pacific Standard time so my first five pins after 5:00 PM

4) With the new following tab followers are important because they will see our content first. Make sure to have quality engaging followers not just quantity.

5) Pin tries and comments will help get you more impressions. One way to get more of those she suggested is to embed the pins directly into your post. And add a call to action like check this out and comment…. keep scrolling for the goods.

    • I love Tailwind. If you use my link above you can try it free for 30 days and it will help in that amount of time for sure.

  1. This is so helpful, pinterest is such a struggle of mine, I really need to look into tailwind, these new updates make me feel like I kind of need it

    • Yes Tailwind is a must in my opinion. It is not only a scheduler it tells what times of the day are best and gives you great analytics. If you sign up with my link above you get 30 days free and can cancel if you don’t like it after that ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Thanks so much for this. Pinterest is still uncharted territory to me, as I feel I don’t know what to do with it. So I appreciate your post very much. I have never used Tailwind before, but I think I need to give it a try.
    Blessings!

  3. You are an absolute rockstar for sharing this! Thank you so much for the amazing info and I had been wondering how to embed pins as well!

  4. Wow, thank you. I was at 1.8m monthly viewers and I dropped to 1.6 after a week of not pinning, so I get how important consistency is. I have to look into that tool you said about. I also did not know about the embedded pin. Have to try that as well. And I just love love love the new layout of a Pinterest profile ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Hi Terri, I cannot stress enough how good that video is. Hope you get the time to watch it. I was invited to a Pinterest conference I am hoping to learn even more and will share here!

  9. Great information. I still feel new to the blogging world and staying up to date with my social media channels (related to blog). These are great tips to drive traffic.

    • I get 84 percent of my traffic from Pinterest and I know other bloggers get most of their traffic from there to. My blog is new so my Google traffic will take some time. For now it’s huge for me.

    • Which part seems crazy David? I would love to discuss further. I have been using these tactics and seen a very good increase in traffic.

  10. Ugh I have been wanting to read something that covered recent changes to Pinterest and how to promote on it. Thank you!
