  1. This post is packed full of information! I went through step by step and updated my business Pinterest account. Thanks so much! Joining group boards is still a challenge – finding them is the hard part. I might have to improve my pinning plan (joining Tailwind!) before I go on to joining boards! One thing at a time :). Thanks for all the great info!

    1. Yay! So pleased it helped Cindy 😀 I have a good tip for group boards. Go to the Pinterest accounts of other bloggers in your niche and look to see what group boards they are in. Click on each group board and read the description – the simply follow the instructions there for how to join. I find it a bit hit and miss – some people never reply. But what I do is do loads all in one go and then I find I am accepted by quite a few each time. Hope that helps! Eb 🙂

  2. After we started talking about Pinterest in the FB group, I’ve started thinking I need to get back into Pinterest and Tailwind. I’ve been paying for Tailwind and haven’t been using it!!!! This blog post is just what I was looking for. I read a few others from a different search and I just couldn’t find what I was looking for. Plus, I trust you Eb! This post came up on the top of my search and of course I clicked. Now to go and read your other one on Tailwind so I can refresh my memory on how to use it! Xx

    1. Oh yay! Delighted to hear this post has been so useful for you and especially that you chose to follow mine because you trust me – that makes me very happy! 🙂

  3. Hello,
    This post is really informative and detailed. But 1 question, does joining groups really help, not through Tailwind?

    1. Hi Sarah, Yes groups really does help. It gets your pins in front of more eyes and so more opportunity for clicks and repins… which will in turn lead to more clicks and repins… it’s a virtuous circle! Eb 🙂

  4. This was exactly what I needed! I have been doing it all in the wrong order and missed many important steps as I was so ager to get started after the long process of setting up my website.

    Thanks for a clear and detailed step by step guide. Excited to explore traffic through pinterest.


  5. Hi Eb, I noticed you used a picture of yourself as a profile picture for both of your accounts, but the name is your blog name. How did you decide on that?

    I have two blogs, and for my first one I am using a picture of myself and my name, but for my second one I have been leaning towards my logo and my blog name. How do you decide?

    1. Hi Miranda! OK, so I chose to use a photo of myself (as I do across all of my social media) as it humanises my brand – people relate to people not to faceless corporations and logos… being a real person is one of our biggest assets as bloggers! I use the same pic across every social media channel and my blog to help people instantly recognise it’s me. But I use my blog name in the name / @handle as that’s the thing people are most likely to search for and because it helps reinforce my brand name. Hope that helps! Eb 🙂

  6. This is the best post I have found about Pinterest so far! I finally have an idea how to get started. Thank you very much!

  7. Great post! I was looking for information on what I need to do so that when a visitor to my blog visits my site and wants to save a pin that the title and fields are already filled in for them (or me!). Thanks
