Pinterest Clicks to Increase Sales

100 clicks a day

Pinterest clicksI read a blog post about how to get 100 Pinterest clicks to my website every day. I’m experimenting to see if that really works. Read my experiment below.

My first steps

  • Created a pin that relates to my business.
  • Went to pinterest.com and created a board.
  • Added my pin.
  • Then added 7 other related pins.
  • (The above “100 clicks” article said that you should add 5-10 other people’s pins to a board for every pin of your own that  you post. )

I set up a Pinterest advertising account. Now a click on that new pin will always link to my web page that encourages people to buy something from me.

See How to Add Other People’s Pins to Your Pinterest Board below.

See instructions below for finding your board.

The “100 Pinterest clicks” article said that you should:

  • Follow a couple of pin creators every day.
  • Click on some pins
  • Get more information about them.
  • Click the Follow button below pinner’s name.
  • Theoretically, some of these people will begin to follow me.

(You may have to go to Analytics > Overview to find your profile picture.)

Pinterest clicks & group boards

Secret sauce for Pinterest clicksThe “100 Pinterest clicks” article said that group boards are the secret sauce. So, I decide that I had better investigate this one thoroughly.

In case you are completely new to Pinterest, let’s define “board”. A Pinterest board is a collection of individual related pins . Pinterest boards are always owned by one pinner, but may be shared and pinned to by many pinners.

What Pinterest said about how to make pins

We studied thousands of Pins to figure out which ones people engage with most. Here are our top 3 tips for making your Pins stand out:
1. Bring your best ideas: Great Pins are inspirational and actionable. Create Pins that help Pinners do things in real life.
2. Use a 2:3 aspect ratio– vertical Pins look best in Pinterest’s column layout. We recommend a minimum size of 600 x 900px.
3. Write helpful descriptions so people know what your Pin is about, and feel free to include #hashtags.
