How I increased my pinterest followers from 10 to 1000 in 2 weeks

Pinterest is a great way to interact with other and advertise for yourself. A goal of mine was to reach 400 followers within a month. What happened was more than I expected. I now have 1024 followers and counting. It motivates me so much and with the help of Pinterest I can see a slight increase on my blogs traffic as well. Isn't that amazing?

Before I started my new Pinterest account I never thought I would get more than 100 followers.
The steps I followed are actually too easy and you might think that this can't be true, but it is.

If you want to know how to increase your Pinterest followers in 2 weeks, don't stop reading!

Let me tell you: it is possible to get more than that. You just have to put a little effort in this project.
I know how frustrating it can be, so I would like to share my "secrets" with you.

The most important thing, in my opinion, is that you upload a nice picture of yourself and add a description. Thi way, people will get to know you a little better.

Another thing I did to increase my Pinterest followers was to pin about 30 pins each day (I signed up for if you don't know what viralwoot is: you can schedule pins so you don't have to do all the work). Staying active is a good way to make sure that you get your name out there.

It also pays off to follow a certain amount of people. But only people that are in your niche. I followed about 200 people and then I stopped and people started following me. This was one was the smartest things I did to increase my Pinterest followers. I never thought that this would work, but I did.

Of course, you want to create a couple of boards, including a "best-of board" with all your posts. The title should be clear and you should also add a description (they also function as keywords, so if someone searches for a certain for word, they will find your board).

Something I realized is, that not a lot of people comment on pins. I would highly suggest you do that, not only do you leave a good impression but you can also advertise for yourself. If someone follows you, you could send him/her a nice message, thanking them for following and to check out your blog.

And last but not least, make sure all your boards look alike. You could use Photoshop, Picmonkey or any other program to design board covers. I have started but I am not done yet. Boards that look alike make your Pinterest look nice and clean, and that is what most people like, right?

To summarize the steps you have to take:

  •  upload a picture of yourself and add a description
  • follow people with the same interests
  • create boards that represent your niche
  • create a best-of you board
  • board covers should look alike
  • get involved and stay active (pin, pin, pin)
  • comment on pins/leave a nice message if people follow you
So, you see, the steps I took to reach 1000 Pinterest followers are rather very simple. But you have to be consistent with it. If you don't work for it, you won't see any success ;)

I hope I could help you a little bit and that you found this post helpful.
