How to Grow Your Pinterest Viewing From 0 To 48K

I decided to create this post because, when I was trying to grow my Pinterest, I came across the same old things. Stuff like “create an engaging audience” or “connect with your followers.” Even though these tips are true, most posts  would always explain how this helps boost your views rather than how to do it. Which is frustrating, because I would spend an hour looking for helpful information, and end up with none. So i’m here to show you how to grow your Pinterest viewing with just THREE simple steps. That’s right. You heard me correctly.

As you can see from the graph above, my Pinterest views started moving steadily up on October 9th. It took four DAYS, from October 5th to start my major boost. This happened as soon as I followed through with all three of the steps listed farther in this post. Hopefully as I continue, my viewing will keep growing quickly.



In less than a month, my viewing showed a major boost. I went from less than 5,000 viewers monthly to over 48 thousand. I hope that the tips listed below will help you receive a huge advance in your viewing.

Lets get into it and I hope I can help!

Step 1: De-clutter

Before I started my blog, I basically pinned whatever. I had 15 followers, but once I realized that I wanted to formulate a business like platform, I boosted 60 followers the next day. Crazy right! All you have to do is get rid of those random boards and choose pins you believe people want to follow. Never get rid of your values though, because if you can’t pin about things you like, then what’s the point? Some of my main boards include self confidence, blogging tips, and dream closet. These are where I get most of my re-pins from, so I focus on those boards a lot.  Make sure to pin other content more than your own, and try to maintain a 2:5 ratio to keep a balance. The more you pin, the higher of a chance you have, to get people to view your profile.


Step 2: Follow Others With The Same Interests

So I decided to get this one out the way because it does sound like a basic tip, and I didn’t want to contradict my self. As a blogger this point is key, because a lot of bloggers will follow you back. The blogging community is strong and they understand how much work and effort you put in to being successful. If you aren’t a blogger, find a group of supportive people that will help you grow.

To help you move along in this step, follow MY PINTEREST and I will definitely follow you back.

Also as an extra included note, group boards have not worked for me, and I doubt they ever will. Maybe I don’t prioritize them correctly, but they seem to gain less traffic than the pins that are in my personal boards. If you want to give them a try, I hope it works out for you.


Step 3: Pin Like CRAZY

I know if you’re researching Pinterest growth, you’ve definitely heard about Tailwind. I highly recommend it because it allows you to schedule pins for weeks. You even get most of their aspects with a free account. But before you go and plan your pins make sure you spend some time pinning straight from the app/website. Pin content that you believe your viewers and followers want to see. When I started, I aimed to pin at least 50 pins a day. You might be thinking, HOLY GUACAMOLE THAT’S A LOT. You might be right, but you only have to do this for about five days to get a good amount of traffic going. Honestly, scrolling through Pinterest in addicting.


In less than an hour, I bet you will pin more than fifty a day just by doing your daily scroll through. Make sure to include some of your own pins to help promote your business.

I hope this post is helpful and that it leads you to success. If you follow these steps let me know in the comments if you were successful. Until the next post…

    Hello ,

    I saw your tweets and thought I will check your website. Have to say it looks really nice!
    I’m also interested in this topic + have recently started my journey as young entrepreneur.

    I’m also looking for the ways on how to promote my website. I have tried AdSense and Facebok Ads, however it is getting very expensive.
    Can you recommend something what works best for you?

    Would appreciate, if you can have a quick look at my website and give me an advice what I should improve:
    (Recently I have added a new page about Rockwall Investments and the way how normal people can make money with this company.)

    I have subscribed to your newsletter. 🙂

    Hope to hear from you soon.

    Maybe I will add link to your website on my website and you will add link to my website on your website? It will improve SEO of our websites, right? What do you think?

      I don’t know much about advertising websites. I mostly advertise through Twitter, Pinterest, and Instagram. Your website is great. It contains tons of helpful information. The only tip I would give is to organize the bottom portion of your website a little better. This is only because it seems as if there is a lot going on, when in reality if you look closer its only about three things. Most people want to be able to take a quick glance over a website and find everything they need. Just a suggestion. Have a great day.

    People always talk about Pinterest and how helpful it is when you’re trying to build a brand. I had a account for years and I never knew how much of a impact it had until now . I will try these tips. Thank you ! I also will follow your Pinterest .

    Thanks for sharing that with us! I definitely need to focus on growing my followers on pinterest. It is such a great way to get viewers and subscribers. Along with what you said, it is important to make a schedule so life doesn’t get in the way. Monday follow a certain number of people, Tuesday pin a certain number of pins etc. I’m currently working on a schedule for myself so I can start growing my followers on social media.

    Great post and great motivation for me to see such results!

    These are great tips! I am currently seeing how I like tailwind and actually testing if it makes a difference to my reach. I am currently stuck just under 30k viewers a month. I have implemented some new strategies, but like you said I think I need to actually declutter. I also haven’t really been going out of my way to follow likeminded people so I will try that one also!
