How to get more repins and followers on Pinterest?

Pinterest is one of the effective platforms to drive more traffic or sales to your business .Getting followers and repins are no more a big task for bloggers and sellers. Pinterest got more women than men if you are writing about travel,fashion, and food then you got more potential here than any other platforms not only local traffic but also brings international traffic so before you increase followers make sure you are ready to show your blog or sell your product to international users.

How to get more repins and followers on Pinterest?
1.Follow others

Unless you are a stardom or popular business people won’t follow you by default. All you have to do is to make them know that you are using Pinterest and pinning stuff from an interesting website on your boards for that you need to follow pinners.

You can search for the boards related to your and start following the followers of the respective popular boards. If you are really posting related stuff surely you get some follow backs.

blogpin
For example This board got 100+k followers , you can follow these followers to get follow back

 

I followed 300 pinners in a day and  earned 30 followers. Keep on following new pinners related to your domain everyday you could get a big number of followers in a month.

2.Invite your friends

Invite all your contacts right from Facebook to your mail accounts. You can also do cross-promotion in other platforms for your board or for your pins to invite your friends to follow or repin your posts.

Tell them why they need to follow you how it can help them .Pitching a post in two or three lines is very important to attract more followers.

3.Pin more

If you are an owner of the board “Make money online” pin more posts from the different websites. Increasing the number of pins will increase the followers and engagements because they got something to do with the board.

4.Use attractive images

Pinterest is all about images .I was using simple copyright free images from google for my posts later I changed the way of selecting images to increase engagements. Spend some time to create your own image for your blog post.

Learning the three to four features of Photoshop is good enough to create your image. Just download the copyrights free images and then make some changes with your blog title and domain name on the images. Since images advocate for your posts on Pinterest, it is very important to have the post title on your image.

Vertically large and beautiful image suits more on Pinterest and attracts more attentions rather than horizontal and smaller one.

Picmonkey is an easy online tool to create your very own image with fewer hassles.

5.Add features on your site

Create an option for your visitors to pin your posts on Pinterest either by adding Pinterest plugin or by adding social sharing plugins like “AddtoAny”.

6.Request pinners

You can request pinners to repin your posts in your description or add a line in your blog post to pin it.

For example, you can add a line at the bottom of your post like this “If you find this interesting please pin it on Pinterest” or

You can create an image to request pinners to pin your post on Pinterest like this.

How to get more repins and followers
Please pin this
7.Contribute to Group boards

Group boards are one of the effective ways to increase repins and followers. Find a group boards for your niche and request the owner to add you then start pinning .You will really come to know the effectiveness of group boards once you started contributing.

8.Analyze the pins

Check your analytical data daily to analyze how many repins, impressions, clicks and likes. Repin the post that got more repins and find the best time for pinning by trial and error method with the help of data.

9.Content matters

Though the title and images look attractive if the content is not worth sharing then pinners won’t show interest to repin so make sure you are sharing interesting content.

If you know few other ways please comment down I try to make the list big.

How I am increasing blog views?

I started writing blog with an aim to monetize it so I made a plan to write continuously for a month and then focus on increasing the views but I did write articles continuously but couldn’t make the views, that time it was only 50 or 60 views per day but after making few changes to my blog and the way of approach I am getting 200-500 views daily. I know 500 is not a big number but how I moved from 50-500 is a notable subject. So here I am putting down how I am increasing blog views.

1.Focused approach

When I started writing a blog, I covered wide genre right from celebrity to sales executive. Under the tag “Must read” I write my observations but later I moved from wide niche to focused approach I started writing on Sales and Marketing, Money Making and Career Guidance.

When I was writing in wide topics I found difficult to draw my audience but now it is easy to attack them so focused approach is necessary for more views.

If you are a team of more than five then you can cover wide genre like news and media website where each one of you can concentrate on the individual topic. But if you are an individual try to write about a specific niche.

2.Explore all the social media platforms

I was restricted only to Facebook and twitter but later I realised with Facebook you cannot reach more people even you cannot reach all your page likers.

Then I started exploring the social bookmarking sites like Reddit, Pinterest, Digg, Stumbleupon and so on .Really they will help you to increase your views it will also bring foreign subscribers to your page as I got.

Don’t leave any social platforms explore everything and be consistent in writing and publishing the articles in all the sites.

3.Start Writing in Linkedin and Quora

I started publishing articles in Linkedin with a link to my original article at the end really it is working and fetching decent views from Linkedin users.

Share your article’s link in updates section and write an engagement sentence to engage your connections more they engage, more post reach at the end increased views.

You can write an answer in quora with a link to your article it will also help you to increase views for your blog.

4.Maintain Consistency

You can check my blog  I write articles daily and publish it on all the platforms consistently .It is difficult to maintain consistency amidst busy working schedule but try harder if you really want to increase your blog views.

But never write articles because you have to maintain consistency. Take time to understand your subject and then publish your own observations and learnings.

5.Useful articles

It is your article’s heading which motivates users to open the link to know what is inside the box so make an attractive and relative heading.

Always focus on the content you are writing, people will like to read if you list out the points for example 5 steps before you start a blog to work from home or they want to learn from others experience like How I got four jobs in six months? Or new technology in their industry. Always think from your reader’s point, if you are seeing your post in your timeline, Is it motivating you to open and read or to a simple scroll?

Rather than focussing on views or to make money from blog focus on good content and try to give what they are expecting it will automatically increase view don’t write an article and push it to your subscribers.

These are 5 points I am doing and did to increase my blog views if you have any suggestions please comment down I will write a reply for sure.

5 Steps before you start a blog to work from home

Two lakhs users are searching for work from home jobs every month in Google but many of the techniques are ineffective and won’t fetch you money to survive. But blogging can bring you the money you want but you have to work hard and has to be patient .Here we are listing 5 steps before you start a blog to work from home.

1.Don’t quit your job to work from home

It sounds insane but don’t quit your job because you are going to focus full day on bringing a successful blog. Lot of people are starting a blog by quitting their job to write about startups, techstories or about new products .Yes you can make million but not from the first day. You may get $0.01 for one day so don’t rely on this income but start writing parallely. Make your job as the main source and blog as future source of income.

2.Select specific niche

The main source of income from blog is by displaying google ads or displaying banner but your click through rate will be low if you select wide genre.

For example if you are starting a blog about Food and Travel AdSense will display ads relevant to your keywords or content of your site and the viewers also coming to your site to know about travel places .If Google displays relevant ad they may click the ad to visit the site so you can make money.

But if you are writing in wide genre like news and media websites AdSense displays ads which are common like ecommerce, play rummy etc. But you are not sure your viewers are interested. So they may not click the ad.

But apart from this based on the viewer’s history AdSense displays ad but it is wise to choose specific genre than wide genre.

3.Start a trial blog

Don’t start by buying host and domain, start by writing in blog websites like blogger or in Tumblr do this for two weeks and analyse whether you have time to write post consistently, think you have the enough knowledge on your niche. If it works then you can start installing WordPress and launch your very own blog but think twice if you cannot post regularly because Google will improve your page ranks if you post fresh contents regularly.

4.Learn basics of SEO

SEO is not dead, if you really want to make money from your blog you should learn the basics of SEO and how to optimize your site .If you are starting WordPress blog there are lot of useful plugins to improve your SEO score so it is important to go through few lessons on SEO.

5.Follow other money makers

Lot of people are making Billions from their blog so before starting your blog read on how they became popular? what strategy they followed to become popular?

For example Yourstory started as a blog in a night now it is under spot light Shradha Sharma shared her story in many interviews not only YourStory follow Amit Agarwal India’s first and only professional blogger making huge money from his blog labnol.

So it is important to learn the strategies that worked.

Please share your suggestions on blog writing as a main source of income to work from home.

 

How to make your blog post viral?

Everyone wants to make their blog post viral at least one time which will fetch a good response in future also but all the bloggers know this it is not easy to make the content viral but if your content goes unreadable by anyone it may demotivate you because you know how much time you have spent and how much read for composing the post so everyone want their post to be read by everyone. I put some of the points which can make the content viral but don’t try this in all post depends on the content.

  1. Make your content clear even a beginner should easily understood what you are trying to say.
  2. Make the content useful play with some statistics in your niche always don’t go with plain text use appropriate images.
  3. Use Google adwords display planner to collect keywords related to your subject and make the title with it.
  4. Use the keywords in the image alt tag also don’t leave it empty if you are wordpress put it in “Alt text” or if you are coder <img src=”” alt=”keywords”> don’t leave it blank.
  5. Become member of the social media group related to your niche or create and manage one.
  6. Post your blog link in related social Medias group and use appropriate tags.
  7. You can find and track hashtags in websites like hashtagify and hashtracking.
  8. Don’t use more than three hashtags in your twitter post and use maximum in Instagram post .
  9. Make your site SEO optimized if you are using wordpress use Yoast free plugin or get help from the experts.
  10. Make your title sexier people will really open your post if it is like gossip , adult title but make sure at least you have some relation with your content or else readers will never open your post. The advantage is when you post in social groups you get good views but it may not help you in SEO.
  11. Tag the trending hashtags in your post but don’t overdo it.
  12. Request fellow bloggers from other niche to retweet or share your post in return do the same to their post.
  13. Include your blog url in your fb post, as signature in email, your WhatsApp status so people will start questioning you what is this.
  14. Request your families and friends to share and retweet your post.
  15. Find the popular person in your niche and tag her/him in twitter so that he/she may retweet you which can help you to reach maximum numbers but don’t try this for all the post.

And be patient if you know some other points feel free to comment down I will add it in the list.

Content is king but without reader what king will do?
