Now that we’ve got the basics out of the way, it’s time for a few power tips that will really help boost your Pinterest success!
Text on Images
One important thing to remember is that text will attract more clicks and re-pins than images alone. For this reason, it’s a good idea to put some text on all the images you pin for your own content. Remember to use the key words that we discussed previously. If you want an idea of the best way to place text on your images, just check out some of the most popular pins at any given time. Be sure to use bold colors that really pop and grab the attention of the user! Colorful text on a white background can work well, or lighter text on a colorful background can really stand out.
Taller images always perform better on Pinterest than wider images, because taller images take up a lot more page real estate than wide images.
The ideal image size for Pinterest as of the time of this writing is 735 x 1100. That is 735 pixels wide and 1100 pixels tall. Importantly, if your image is not 1100 pixels tall, just try to make sure it is at least 735 pixels wide to keep the algorithms happy. Images are easy to alter using simple programs like ‘Paint’, where you can define the pixel size for both width and height.
Guest boards are an extremely powerful way to expand your reach on Pinterest, and you should get yourself invited to as many quality boards in your niche as you can. Guest boards are pin boards that are run by one account but posted to by many accounts. You can create a guest board of your own by inviting others to post on it, but the most powerful part of guest boards is being invited to post on popular ones yourself.
Pingroupie is a great way to find group boards you can post to. You can search by category, keyword, etc.
Different group boards have different rules and different methods for getting invited, but most of them will give you the basics at the top. However, ‘pingroupie’ has its own criteria to be met before you can participate:
