  1. Thank you for sharing these tips! Pinterest is definitely a weak spot for me in blogging and I’m going to implement some of these tips into my next post to see if it helps 🙂

  2. The last mistake is the saddest one to me. I know there are quite a few bloggers out there with this problem and it makes me sad for some reason. I’m afraid I might be one of those people, though I do have a couple regular visitors to my blog. My blog is actually in a rather odd niche that not many people look up on Google. I think it’s more of a Pinterest search thing, though no one seems to be able to find my pins. I don’t know why but I know one thing for sure: the descriptions of my pins will be changing. Thank you for these solutions, Chantel!

    • Lisa – you are very welcome. Have you tried spending time in online communities where your target audience hangs out? If you observe the discussions in those groups, you may find that you will be able to get ideas for exactly what posts to write based on the questions asked and the conversations going on in Facebook groups, online forums, etc. In fact, if you actively participate in the discussions, you may even be able to repurpose the conversations that you have as blog posts. Just an idea! 🙂

  3. Thanks for sharing! I kept hearing about Tailwind tribes but couldn’t figure out how to access them. I just joined the one you recommended and am hoping this will help increase some of my traffic! Also, how do you get share buttons that stay on the side of your page? I am using a paid theme that came with icons, but would love something that stays on the side while scrolling.

  4. There are a couple of these I’m not doing. I’m going to add the plug-in, so they can pin directly from the pictures. I’m also going to start putting in the “Skimming this post?….and Did You Enjoy it, so pin it,” in my blog posts going forward. I might even go back and add it to my current ones as my blog is still very new.

    Otherwise, I’m doing the rest, but thanks for these great suggestions!

    • Beth – you are most welcome! Glad to hear that there were a couple of things that you can take away and implement. 🙂

    Thanks!

  6. I’ve never considered hidden images because I always figured people wouldn’t realize they were there, just like you said. I tend to just put the image in the post, sometimes at the beginning and other times toward the end, depending on the post. Great tips, thanks for sharing!

  7. These are great tips especially for me because I’m not to familiar with how to utilize Pinterest.

  8. These are great tips! I’m going to include a reminder for pinning in the middle or end of my posts! Great advice! Loved that you included more resources to up our Pinterest game. Thanks for sharing this super helpful advice! 🙂

  9. I’m working on diving into Pinterest. I love Pinterest for my personal use, but I still need to figure it out for my blog.

  10. Well, that was an awesome post. I have only just realized the potential of Pinterest, so I have been pinning alot.
    There were so many ideas there and I can’t wait to put some of those into action.
    THANKS !!

  11. Do you know how long I have been searching for a free social media icon button service!? Does mysumo provide a short cut to post that particular post, or just a shortcut to your Social media page in general? I was about to pay for a service that allows people to share the link to that particular post.

    • Cherry – you can definitely share specific posts with SumoMe social share buttons. They will float on the side of the page/screen. 🙂

  12. Thank you so much for this information! I have a question you almost touched on, but didn’t quite get there. All my post pictures have the pin it button, but I don’t want people to pin some of them because they really aren’t set up for Pinterest. They are pictures without titles or my website name. My social icon buttons link to my accounts, so if you hit the Pinterest icon it goes to my boards. How can I make sure that when someone clicks a pin it button on an image, they only see the images I set up for Pinterest (with the title, vertical image, etc)? Thank you for your time!

    • Lisa – I think you an add a ‘no pin’ attribute on the images that you don’t want to be pinnable or you can use Social Warfare. 🙂
