Let me ask you a question: Are you guilty of pinning images to Pinterest, then just forget about them, and then later on wonder why you aren’t getting much traffic?

Believe it or not, a lot of people are missing the chance to benefit from what Pinterest has to offer, and you don’t want to be one of them, right?

So I am writing this to help you make your Pinterest addiction profitable. This  article will guide you on how to boost the presence of pins that have stagnated, and gain even more engagement on pins that are currently getting some attention.

Basically, this is achieved through increasing people to your pinterest page and getting your pins out there in front of a wider audience, but… how do you do this?

Cross-promote through other social media platforms:

  1. Facebook – Add your pin to facebook, with a link to it on pinterest, and a call to action.

  1. Twitter – when you create a new pin, include in a tweet, with a call to action.

  1. Google Plus – Add #pinoftheday hashtag to showcase your best pins. Also, add to any communities that you are a member of.

  1. LinkedIn – add to your profile with a link to the pin on pinterest, or add to any relevant groups that you are a member of.

Especially if the pin is linked to a blog post, you can also advertise on other media.

  1. Create a powerpoint presentation of your blog and pin, and add to sites such as sliderserve and slideshare.  Don’t forget to add a call to action, and link to your pin on Pinterest.

Here’s what a call to action should look like:

  1. Convert your powerpoint presentation to pdf, then add to sites like issuu and scribd.

  1. You can also convert the slideshow in powerpoint to a movie. If you aren’t sure how to do this, here is a great step-by-step video tutorial by Chris Chong on YouTube.

  1. Upload your movie to YouTube with your call to action and a link to your pin.

Website and Email:

  1. Blog/website

If the pin is included in your blog or website, make sure to add a pin it button to the image, to make it easier for people to pin.

10. Email newsletter

If you have a list that you send emails to, then include the pin in an email newsletter, with a call to action.

On Pinterest:

11. “The Best Pins” board

Let people know about these good pins! By creating this board, people can easily find your best pins and this will encourage them to re-pin those images.

12. Group boards

Join group boards in your niche, and add your best pins to them!

Now, it’s your turn. Use these tips and tricks and you will soon see a boost in your traffic – no joke!
