Facebook and Twitter possess the bulk of users and by syncing these two platforms with your Pinterest account, you will automatically drive traffic to your Pinterest profile and get more followers.
2. Create Tutorial-Based Boards
People are always on the lookout to learn ways of doing things. Perhaps knitting is a subject that some Pinterest users are interested in. You can take advantage of this information to create tutorial boards that contain step-by-step guides on how to go about knitting. Adding clear and colorful photos in each board and using language that is simple and interesting will draw in more followers. People will be hooked to your profile and will wait, week after week, for more tutorials. This can even land you a cult following.
3. Put a Pinterest Plugin in your Blog or Site
Harnessing the power of social media in order to maximize it calls for a proactive approach. If you are running a blog, ensure that every time you post a blog blurb, have a plugin to your Pinterest profile at the bottom of each post asking them to find out more information about you or share your post on Pinterest which will lead them to your Pinterest profile.
