I went from 4k followers to 10k followers on Pinterest in only 6 months! No joke! And just last week I got another 300.
At this rate I’ll be gaining 1,200 followers every month and be at 20k in less than a year…maybe even before then.
On one hand I am shocked and amazed at how quickly my Pinterest following has grown, since this time last year I barely had 3,000 followers.
On the other hand, looking back at some of the changes I’ve made to blogging, it’s really not that surprising.
What I did to grow my Pinterest account
One of the things I did early this year was take Arabah Joy’s Pinterest in 21 course.
It was the first course I’ve ever taken and it was a game-changer for me in the way I approach Pinterest.
I’ll be honest, I had a lot of trouble understanding Pinterest up to that point. It was so abstract to me and very unsocial. And yet, it was a biggest source of traffic. So I knew I had to start learning to how make it work for me even better.
What is Pinterest in 21?
Pinterest in 21 starts with the very basics of setting up a Pinterest account, setting up your boards, getting your account verified, and getting rich pins.
Then it dives deeper into what pins will get you the most attention, how to optimize your boards and pins for Pinterest, how to brand your images for Pinterest and what the best pinning techniques are to get your boards recognized.
With over 20k followers and multiple viral pins, Arabah Joy really knows what she’s talking about here.
I followed her course carefully from beginning to end, and eagerly waited for each lesson. Her lessons are video-based and the homework is both challenging but doable. My advice is to do as I did:
I set cleared my plate as much as I could so I’d have time to watch the video and do the homework each day.
As I applied each lesson, I began to realize that all this time I had been missing out on some valuable tools to make Pinterest work for me.
What Pinterest in 21 did for me
Soon after the course was over I wrote a post, made an image – based on the tools I learned in Pinterest in 21 – and that pin has been perpetually viral for months now!
Over the past 7 months I’ve gained over 6,000 followers and my blog traffic went from 19,000 hits a month to 72,000 hits a month!
If you want to increase your blog traffic, learning to work Pinterest is key, and Pinterest in 21 will give you the tools you need to work it like a pro.
How can you sign up for Pinterest in 21?
Arabah Joy will be doing Pinterest in 21 starting October 1st. With this course you will have access to her videos and in the last lesson you will be added to a private Facebook group just for her Pinterest in 21 students.
The course is well worth the investment.
