Are you looking to increase your Pinterest engagement and drive traffic?
In this article, I’ll share 12 tips on how you can get more Pinterest followers and promote your business.
Why More Pinterest Followers?
More Pinterest followers can help you get more likes, repins, comments, clicks and impressions.
This can then help drive traffic, increase sales, generate leads and build your Pinterest brand.
It also provides an opportunity for you to generate more engagement with your customers.
Here are the tips:
#1: Add the Pinterest Follow Button
The Pinterest follow button diverts website visitors to your Pinterest page, thereby attracting followers. This can be effective if you have a high-traffic website.
Install the button in several prominent places on your website and blog—the header, footer, sidebar, etc. Make it easy for people to find your brand page and convert them into followers.
To create your button, use the widget builder page on Pinterest or create a custom button that matches your branding.

#1: Run a Campaign to Give Back
One of the most interesting things I’ve seen on Pinterest was Sony Electronics’ Pin It to Give It campaign.
Sony Electronics used their Pinterest brand page to curate an array of Sony Electronics products that were pinned to the Pin It to Give It board. Every time someone repinned from the board, Sony Electronics donated a dollar to The Michael Phelps Foundation. The campaign ran from November 27 through December 31, 2012 and raised more than $12,500.
Are you measuring your Pinterest marketing effectively?
It’s crucial that any business understands whether their time spent on a social network is generating results.
Why Pinterest Analytics?
Consistently measuring your activity on Pinterest can also help your business identify what types of content resonate best on this channel and with your specific audience.
The number of followers your account has is important to note, but it’s certainly not the final indicator of a successful Pinterest strategy.
To gain access to your Pinterest account’s analytics, verify your website and then from the Settings drop-down menu at the top right-hand corner, you’ll be able to check your stats by clicking Analytics.
Pinterest has given businesses the ability to create business-specific accounts.
Now is the time to stop thinking about Pinterest as a personal playground for cooks and fashion lovers.

Pinterest’s recent growth has been unstoppable. According to comScore, Pinterest has grown by 4377% since May 2011. Many blogs are using Pinterest effectively to increase traffic and build engagement.
Below you will find 4 tips to get more traffic to your blog from Pinterest.
#1: Share a Lot of Content
One of the best ways to promote your blog is to pin a lot of images onto your boards.
You need to share both your own content and content from other people.
Aim to create content-rich boards where people come searching for articles on your particular topic.
If you have good boards that are followed by people who regularly view and share your pins, you can boost your blog traffic by pinning posts from your own blog.
