It is becoming more important than ever for businesses to be visible and active on social media. It is no longer enough to simply have a Facebook page, these days businesses and brands are expected to have several social media accounts. One of the must haves in terms of social networking is Pinterest.
A recent study shows that 43% of Pinterest users interact with retailers and/or brands on the site compared to just 24% over on Facebook. Even if you are not selling a product, Pinterest is definitely the place to be! The same study suggests that the ‘Pin It’ button is used 10 times more that ‘Tweet This’. All of this suggests that you need to be paying attention to Pinterest.
Like other social networks, success of Pinterest depends on followers – but how do you attract them? That is the topic of an interesting infographic titled ‘Double Your Pinterest Followers in Just Five Minutes a Day’ (source) which you can check out below.
One of the ways that is suggested for growing your Pinterest followers is by following those with a similar interest. The recommendation is for you to follow people who have similar interests each day (between 100 and 300) and wait to see if they reciprocate. If not, then after a few days you can delete them and try again with new people. Doing this daily will help to increase your followers. The great thing is that if you are sharing quality pins, then your new followers are probably going to re-pin them which will encourage their followers to perhaps choose to follow you as well.
There are a number of other tips offered in the infographic all of which will help you to grow your Pinterest following without a huge amount of time or effort.
