I’ve been using Pinterest as a tool to drive traffic to my blog since January 2017, and since then I’ve seen the number of people visiting my blog explode, increasing every month until present day where I receive at least 400 page visits per day.
How have I achieved this? Has it taken tons of work and an expensive scheduling tool? Well actually, no. I simply put in a few minutes works each day and only use the free version of Tailwind a couple of times a week.
Intrigued to how to use Pinterest to drive traffic to your blog? Then read on…
I first became interested in using Pinterest as a driver of traffic to my blog in January 2017. At this point I was only getting one or two hits per day, but fast forward to today and the number of people clicking through to my website totals over 12,000 a month accounting for 70% of my traffic. Pinterest is a goldmine that is just waiting for you to utilise it, as long as you know how. Although currently on maternity leave, I work full time, so I know better than anyone that it is possible to fit in Pinterest in around your busy life. Frankly, with the amount of traffic it brings, you’d be quite bonkers not to make it an integral part of your daily ‘blogmin’ schedule.
By following these top tips for using Pinterest you will start to see an increase in your monthly viewers and ultimately traffic to your website or blog. As with anything, consistency is key, but the good news is you only need to dedicate around twenty minutes a day, if that. I’ve started with the absolute basics, but even if you’ve been using Pinterest for a while, there’s no harm in going back to check that everything is as it should be.
