Pinterest is such a helpful tools for bloggers and you can use it in many ways to establish your brand, grow your traffic, gain an audience and of course, build up your income.
Here are a few things that bloggers can do with Pinterest:
- Create a reliable audience that actually read your blog and are ready to buy your services and products
- Working on that email list? Your in the right place.
- Increase your income
- Grow your social media following, engagements and traffic
Want to know how to accomplish that? Here are 5 steps to get you started.
Step 1: Get your Blog set up as a business account. Then claim your website and make sure to fill out your bio (example mine is: Claudia| Pinning Strategist)
Step 2: Go to canva.com or relatable site and start creating pins that represent your blog post. Make sure to build a template that represents your brand (focus on color, font, image, etc.) and make sure it’s readable and clear. Here’s an example.
Step 3: This is where some keyword research comes in. The best way to understand what type of keywords work well is just to do a simple Pinterest search. You can also look for comparable niche pinners and see what they might be doing to get more of an idea.
Step 4: If you’re starting with a brand new Pinterest account, create 5 boards that are relevant to what you blog about. Make sure for each board to fill out the description and what kind of board it is. It’s very important to make sure everything is keyword friendly as well.

?tep 5: Focus on a consistent schedule with pinning. Make sure to always have pins created and ready. Don’t be afraid to create more than 1 pin for the same post (change up the content and image) to stay fresh. Pinterest loves when you provide new content. It is also a time saver too!
Other things to note
- Pin at least 5-10 pins a day (your content or others)
- When you first start out, use the Pinterest scheduler or later to help with time management.
- This is the manual pin method that I currently do. A lot of other people will use Tailwind, which is also an option if you have a TON of content
- Pin from your blog! This is something I just started recently doing and it’s crazy how much more traffic I am getting
