Once you’ve set up your new Pintrest account it’s hard not to go crazy with Pinning. Pintrest is a virtual pin board with every type of information you need and want at your finger tips. But if you want to be a Pintrest Star you’re going to need to exercise some pinning control. Here are some of my tips to becoming a Pintrest Star
The Best Pinboard’s and the images ‘repinned’ most often are those that are original. This is simple. Use your imagination to take and edit your own pictures. Instagram is an asset here; you simply upload the picture straight from your phone. Catherine Tolbert has a whole board dedicated to Instagram photos that she has taken. With 318 followers on just that board, she’s taken originality to the max.
Adding a description of you image (whether it be directly on the image or in the item description) is a fantastic way to encourage followers. Personally if I see a picture of a cool hairstyle I want to know how I can do that myself. There are so many individuals out there who are providing bucket loads of information, making them a go to source.
Follow to Be Followed
Like any Social media app, if you want followers you need to become a follower. This is made simple on Pintrest. You can choose to follow a person’s entire Pintrest catalogue or just follow particular boards that you like. When someone follows you, Pintrest will notify you and you will be given the option of following them back. It doesn’t hurt to gain some inspiration from others.
Keep It Simple Stupid. It’s a term I heard a lot from my teachers in high school and it is definitely the right term for Pintrest. Keep your images simple and straight to the point. Cluttered space is not going to help your fan base. My suggestion is to have a minimalistic image as your ‘board’ cover photo. This will keep your space neat, tidy and easy to navigate through.
