Important steps to rock the Pinterest platform:

1) Create a account:

  1. Do it like a pro.  You must create your Pinterest account very carefully because it is not for the mere Teen hangout (you can use it like that, though).
  2. Put your accurate Bio and your details about your business or blog, whatever the case may be.
  3. Upload a headshot for your profile image.
  4. Link it to your website. Bonus: Pinterest gives a link back to your site provided you verify it. Remember Pinterest is a PR9 website.

2) Share, share, share.

Sharing is the new social Mantra. If you gonna get noticed you got to share others stuffs. But be sure do it from heart. You don’t wanna be tagged as Bots,right?
The more you Pin on pinterest the more you are going to be noticed and more are the chances that people will follow you.
 
Did you know about 80% of the Pins on Pinterest are repins!
Pinterest displays related boards that have the same or similar image when one clicks on any image. So the more pins you have the more you gonna be noticed.

3) Promote your Pins:

  1. You must promote your pins as you do with your tweets and Facebook or Instagram account.
  2. Link your Facebook and Twitter account with your Pinterest profile and seamlessly share pins  as soon as updated. (CAUTION: don’t overdo or post every pin to FB or Twitter as that will kill the urge of your followers to check your pinterest account because they get everything cooked and packed on their choice of platform.)
  3. Create an urge to visit your Pinterest board by giving regular but limited sneak peaks of whats pinned to your board.
  4. Use pinterest’s own promoted pins feature, Just like Facebook’s promoted ads.
  5. Hold contests and organize giveaway in return for favors like Pin to win.
