Engaging Followers on Pinterest

Pinterest is a great visual platform that can help you interact and vibe with your followers. Keep your followers engaged for hours with some beautiful images and build your very own social media empire! Here at Social Envy we know what it takes to get those re-pins rolling in; and we’re sharing our top tips with you! You’re welcome. 😉


  1. Know your Brand

Like Instagram, Pinterest works best if you have a cohesive and visually recognizable brand. Keep the images you post and re-pin consistent and to a theme and your followers will love you for it. Into fitness? Stick to posting bangin’ bods and #fitspo worthy food. All about your home decor? You guessed it, re-pin those beautiful interiors. Travel addict? Views, views, views, baby. On top of your subject matter, another great way to align your Pinterest visuals is with colour. Sticking to a similar colour palate will make your posts pop and get you those much needed re-pins.

  1. Keyword it Up

Just as on Instagram, #hastags are your best friend in the Pinterest game. Add relevant tags to your imagery to ensure you get that exposure and encourage engagement. Do your research and see which keywords gain the most re-pins and likes and be sure to also add these words to your image name, description along with your pinboard names.



  1. Organization is Key

The unique thing about Pinterest is its organization. Pinboards allow you to store collections of similar images to help you and your followers navigate the site easily. With our previous two tips in mind, be sure to keep your on-brand, well tagged pics well organized  in relevant collections to keep your Pinterest on point and follower-friendly.



Bonus Tip!

Like any other platform, the key to building a Pinterest following is to engage with your squad! This means likes, comments and repins of your followers pictures; keep it social and watch that follower count rise.
