Follow others on Pinterest
As you are beginning your account it’s important to engage with others and follow new people often. When you select users to follow, be sure that their account reflects your business. One quick tip is to follow content specific boards that are to your benefit before you follow the entire users account.
Timing matters with pins
The final tip has to do with when you pin and how much you pin. Pinterest’s new Smart Feed with Guided Search has altered the way things work in terms of what your followers are seeing at times.
