When I started my blog I started reading up on growing an audience and increasing traffic. Both of those things are important to a successful blog. Pinterest was one tool I saw recommended over and over again by bloggers!

I started off posting three original pins a week on Pinterest. In doing so I was getting a few thousand monthly views on the platform. After doing more digging, I realized that increasing my views on Pinterest could really increase traffic to my blog (even more so than I initially thought).

A successful blogger I spoke with said she used to post 100 pins a day, and now recommends at least 15 pins a day! While I didn’t have the bandwidth to do that at first, I started posting between five to seven pins a day. In the first week I saw the metrics jump up +336% in impressions. My ‘saves’ and ‘link clicks’ greatly improved as well!

I use Canva to make the pins and Tailwind to schedule them. Both are seriously helpful tools. Another tip is to check out which of your pins are clicked more than others. Perhaps your audience reacts better to certain fonts or styles. Paying attention to success in a pin can help you improve for your future!
