How to Get Your Pins Noticed on Pinterest: The Ultimate Guide

Pinterest is the perfect platform for marketing content.

It has a very large and engaged audience and it's easy to use. The only problem: how do you get your pins noticed on Pinterest? Trust me, I know this pain! You pin an image then sit back and wait, but nothing happens. Pinning images is not enough - we need to take matters into our own hands if we want to see results from all of our hard work. In this post, I will tell you how I got my pins noticed on Pinterest so that your business can be successful too!


Step 1: Create Compelling Visual Content for Pinterest

Pinterest is a visual platform, so it's important that we create images for our pin posts that stand out. I recommend using Pinterest image tools such as Canva and to find the perfect design or background photo. You can also use free stock photos like those available from Unsplash .

But what about your text? The best pins have written text that give the image context. When creating pins, think outside of the box: add colors, use bold, easy-to read fonts, etc… Make sure that your end user, the pinner, knows exactly what your pin is about and understands what they will get if they click through!

Also, remember to use keywords when you write your pins so that people can find them!

Step 2: Create Multiple Pins - Create A Variety of Pinterest Images.

Pin as many images as you can from your own content and be sure to use relevant keywords in your descriptions. Mix up the design so that Pinterest considers it "fresh" content. This way each image is optimized with different text and descriptions which will help search engines like Google understand what the pin is about.

Furthermore, having multiple variations of the same product or service could increases sales if you use the opportunity to show users how they can use your product in different ways or buy more than one at a time.

And even better yet - every single pin link points back to your original article for additional traffic flow. This means more opportunities for sales.


Step 3: Create themed boards for your pins on Pinterest.

In order to get noticed on Pinterest, you need an attractive profile with well-organized boards . Using a business account on Pinterest, be sure to name each of your boards according to keywords.

And no, you don't need to use hashtags on Pinterest.
