2. Create Lifestyle Related Boards

You probably have several boards on your business Pinterest account. If not, you need to stop now, and make boards that resonate with both your business and your market. Pins filled with assorted materials like products, home tips, lifestyle images and more, all revolve around their board theme. Also post related links on your blog.

When you pin a blog like this, include:

You can also cross-pin your blog articles to your different boards. Don't just do that too much, as your pins show in your followers' feeds, and you don't want to 'spam' them repeatedly on the same link.

3. Images, Images, Images

Pinterest is all about visuals. Yes, when you want people to read, it may seem a bit counter-productive to provide a great picture. Great visuals, however, are the way to entice pinners to click through their blog posts.

Think of Pinterest as a tasteful delightful glossy magazine. It is full of charming candy. To attract the attention of a reader from the site, your pins need visual appeal to stand out, and invite them to click through your blog post.

Additionally, according to Dan Zarela, longer scenes reap the most benefits. Therefore, also post infographics on the site.

  • Include a short quote from the blog post, and send it to the author

The specialty of your writers makes your readers feel like they are getting to know that person. They want to connect with you on their blog.

When your blog articles are shared by your readers, your readers' friends and followers are also more likely to read it. This is like word of mouth marketing for your blog.

To achieve this, make sure that all your blog posts have a "pin it" button. Make it easy for your pinning readers to share it on the site they love the most.

A Pin It button is easy to set up. Visit the "Pin it" button site on Pinterest, and complete the information. Choose the PIN you want, submit your URL, paste your image file, and create it.

Paste the code for the "Pin It" widget on your website.

According to Pinterest, the "Pin it" button can drastically increase referral traffic to your site. For example, Allrecipes.com added the Pin It button, and in just three months, people pinned their recipes more than 50,000 times, resulting in 139 million views on Pinterest.

The article pin was announced a few weeks ago. They are similar to other new rich pins on Pinterest, such as product pins, recipe pins, and movie pins.

Article pins share additional data than a regular Pin It button. When they are pinned, they automatically include information such as title, author, story summary, and link. They can also include a logo and byline image.

These pins will provide an incredible boost to driving traffic to your blog site. According to Tech Crunch, early adopters are using paragraph pins to great success.
