How Do You Get More Pinterest Followers?

Increasing your followers on Pinterest is not something you need to spend hours a day working on. With consistent effort and a few tried and true tips, you can learn how to gain followers with the best of them!

To start:

1) Follow 10 new people a day. No excuses.

2) Follow everyone back. Yes, everyone. If I find something offensive or that I’m truly not interested in, I just unfollow that board. Why? As long as you are following at least one board of that person you show up as a follower. The same applies when someone follows just one of your boards.

3) Check stats to see who is following you back. If a user has 10,000 followers and are only following 120 people…guess what?…you’re not going to get a follow back.

  9. Good tips. I just don’t get how you find the people to follow? Just random I guess. Except I should follow the people who follow me.

  12. I have two separate Pinterest accounts. My personal one is where I only follow what I am interested in. My business account is where I can follow anyone. Def. helps to have both!

    • I recently got a notice from Blogher about changing my Pinterest account to a business account but I have to read up on that before I make any type of decisions regarding that. I’m not sure that being a blogger is a business. :)

  13. These are pretty much the tips I put to practice, but unfortunately, I do NOT have even close to 400 followers. Will be trying these more concertedly, though. Thanks!

    • You have to do this consistently for a couple of months before you start seeing a return on your investment. It may not look like I have many followers but I was only at 77 when I started this at the end of November and now I’m at over 2500.

  15. Thanks for the great post. Growing my pinterest is of extreme interest to me at the moment, especially since it is one of the biggest referrer of traffic to my blog. I know the 400 a week is probably the outlier, but the process is good to help grow.

    • Even when I take some time off and don’t work as hard I still get over 100 a week. It is one of those things that is self propelling as long as you follow the tips for a month or two first. Or at least that’s been my experience.

  16. I recently joined Pinterest by signing up my Positive Kismet blog. I will use the tips you suggested as I haven’t been spending time there and would love to build up a following. I wanted to see how it works before signing up my WordPress blog. :-)

  18. Thx for the info :) Pinterest is a new platform for me and before reading this I didn’t think it was important to follow a lot of people or follow people back. But now I will start following more people and see what happens :)

  25. I must just be weird, but I’ve never understood the goal to get more Pinterest followers. I’ve actually started unfollowing people who don’t inspire me or people’s boards that don’t inspire me because I don’t like Pinterest to be such a waste of time!

    • Once I follow people I unfollow the boards that I don’t like. This way I still show up in their count. My personal goal is monetary. My husband is disabled and I need a way to make extra money. Since I’ve increased my Pinterest following, I’ve started getting paid opportunities.

  26. I’m definitely going to try this and see what happens! I love finding new pinners that I love!

    • I’ve found that since I’ve gained more Pinterest followers I get more sponsored opportunities. Not sure if they are are really related but if that’s something you’re looking for it might help.
