Perfect Your Profile

Your username should match your real name or business name, (this will help people find you more easily) Fill out the about section and give people a brief description of yourself or your business. Include a link to your website and get it verified. Up load a profile photo, preferably a headshot. People are more likely to follow a real person, so avoid icons and logos.

Share, share, share...

The more you share and pin to your boards, the more you will get your name out there. Make sure to only pin things that interest your followers and represents your brand. Your details are displayed below each pin, allowing Pinterest users to see who you are and have access to your boards.

80% of the pins on Pinterest are repins...

Pinterest is a visual platform, so it's vital to pin high quality images. Pinning visually appealing content can catch the attention of more people and lead to more followers. The study also showed : Colourful images are preferred Red, Orange and Brown images are 2 times more likely to be repinned than Blue images.  

When you pin an image Pinterest gives you the option to - Follow another board with the same image. Use this feature to your advantage and pin more images. The more images you pin the more likely you are to pin the same image of someone else. Pinterest will give others the option to follow you and allow you to attract more followers.

Be Active

Go to the Popular feed and comment on the most popular pins. Don't just comment on random pins make sure it's something you know about. Avoid brief comments like "Great Pin" or "Nice Post" Your comment should show people you understand and care about the subject.

WARNING: Don't comment more than 2-3 times a day (Pinterest will mark your account as spam and suspend your account)

When you can, mention others in your comments or pin description. Contribute to popular group boards with a good amount of followers. Make sure to only contribute quality pins, their followers can become your followers as well. Follow those with similar interests, they are likely to follow you back.
