How do you find Pinterest group boards?
Now, this is important. You definitely do not want to participate on a board that is not even active. Before you consider group boards, it is important to find boards that relate to your specific niche. If you are a food blogger, your audience must be specifically interested in recipes, etc.
Check the following points in a successful Pinterest group.
- The number of pins on the board.
- How many people have followed the board?
- The number of repins. You must consider boards where people help each other.
Many people are having trouble finding the Pinterest group boards relating to your niche. I often read questions in multiple facebook groups, where people ask for precise guidance to find associated Pinterest group boards.
Find Pinterest group boards, according to your niche and target audience.
- Try to connect with bloggers of the same niche. Visit their profiles for the quality pins and group boards they have connected.
- Visit Pingroupie. It shows thousands of group boards, of different niches. You only need to specify your category and you will get to choose from a varied range of groups.
- Use Pinterest search bar. Type your interest or niche in the bar. Select the ‘boards’ filter to browse the pages to collect relevant boards.
Many group administrators specify the instructions in the group description. There are a few steps to follow;
- Follow the board and profile of the owner.
When you visit a group board, you will see some profiles on the right side of the board screen. The first profile is the owner’s profile. Click ‘follow’.
- Respond to a recent pin from the group owner to add you to the Pinterest Group.
- Send an email to the owner and ask him/her to send you an invitation to join the board.
Make sure you mention the name of the group board, your Pinterest URL and your email address associated with your Pinterest profile.
Each group board has different rules. Some give 5 pins a day, while on the other group board there are no limits. Read and follow the rules of each board.
