You can also use this whether you have an online business or a brick and mortar business.

More Profits

I’ll make this easy for you to understand

More Follower = Higher Impression = Greater Chance of Engagement = More Website Clicks = Business Exposure = MORE PROFITS

Okay. Did you understand the importance of getting more followers on Pinterest or you only read the “MORE PROFITS” part?

Well, it doesn’t matter as long as we are now on the same page, then I hope you will read through the article.

So this article is about How to Get More Followers on Pinterest and obviously I will teach you a very ridiculously easy way to gain TARGETED followers!

Did you catch that? You are not just randomly adding followers. You are adding followers that are already interested in your business!

Social Media Brand Awareness

This is about taking advantage of the “Herd Mentality“.

Basically, the more followers you have, the more people will trust you. Also, when people see that you have lots of followers then they would think that your business provides excellent service so they will follow you too.

As you can see, your massive following will attract more people and that means more ka-ching into your pocket.

Well, first things first. I hope you have a Pinterest Business account because that is what you will use. Let me know if you have questions about How to Create A Pinterest Business Account because I can surely help you!

1. Type in Keywords That are Related to Your Business on Pinterest Search Bar

In this step, you will need two things:

First, a business (duh Capt. Obvious).

Second, the niche of your business!

Okay. The second requirement is seriously important to make this whole step to happen.

You need to know the niche of your business because you will need to come up with a list of keywords that are related to your business.

When you type in your primary keyword on the Pinterest search bar, Pinterest will start suggesting secondary keywords, People, and Boards. Ignore those suggestions, instead, hit enter!

2. Choose “People” In the Drop Down Menu

After hitting enter, you will see suggested keywords on the bottom of the search bar. You will also see Pins that are related to the keyword you searched. Again, ignore those for now.

What I want you to do is to focus back on the search bar.

Noticed that there is a drop-down menu at the right end of the search bar.

When you click the drop-down menu, you will be given options: All Pins, Your Pins, Product Pins, Videos, People, and Boards

I need you to choose People.

After choosing people, you will see Pinterest profiles that have the keyword you searched included in their username.

Why sis they included keywords on their username?

So people who are interested in their business can find them!

3. Look for People Who Has Lots of Followers

Now all you need to do is to find the real deal.

You can easily do this by checking the numbers of followers they have.

You can do that by looking at the bottom right corner of their profile picture (See picture above). You can also see the number of followers they have on the right-hand side of their profile. The number you see before the word “Follow” (if you haven’t followed them yet) or “Following” (if you already have followed them)

4. Check their Boards

You need to check their boards to make sure that you have a similar business model as theirs.

My blog niche is personal finance/work at home, thus my Wealth-Builder Tips Pinterest Business account is all about how to make money online, at home, etc. as well as budgeting, paying off debt, etc.

So in the example below, I searched for work at home. After seeing the board of The Work At Home Wife’s board, I knew that we are in a similar business.

Theoretically, if they have a similar business model as yours, then their followers would be interested in your business as well.

That being said, what you need to do is to further check whether the Pinterest user that you found is similar to your business by checking their boards.

If they have boards similar to yours or if they are Pinning the same things as you do then add them.

Pro Tip: Imitate their Boards and Pins if you are just starting

If you just and you still don’t have a board and/or pins and wondering what board to create or what Pins to repin, then this step is actually going to be very helpful to you.

Basically, all you need to do is imitate their profile!

The logic is simple.

They have the same business/niche as you. Since they have lots of followers then they are most likely doing something right.

So if you study and imitate their profile then your chance of succeeding dramatically increases!

5. Add Their Follower

And here it is… The Endgame.

Once you are sure whom to imitate, all you need to do is to click on their followers’ tab and follow as many (but more than 200 per day) people as you can!

I learned that about 20% will follow back – that is 40 a day if you are able to add 200 a day or 1200 (my numbers earlier is smaller because I get lazy to add 200 people)

Pro Tip: Avoid Adding Spam Accounts

Avoid adding Pinterest Accounts that have sexy/seductive pictures or unbelievably gorgeous profile pic because they are spam.

Avoid adding Pinterest Accounts that don’t have profile pictures. Not having a profile picture shows that they are not that interested in Pinterest.

Add Pinterest Accounts that have “realistic” profile pictures.

 Add Pinterest Accounts that have a professional-looking business logo!

That’s it ladies and gents!

Do this strategy and you will have 1300 follower in your first month, 2600 on your 2nd, 3900 on your 3rd and 7800 in just 6 months.

And Remember!  

More Follower = Higher Impression = Greater Chance of Engagement = More Website Clicks = Business Exposure = MORE PROFITS

  1. This is a very good post and this is a very good tip. I’m about to join pin interest and I’m happy you can talk about using other people’s followers to earn yourself some followers and get your business some profit through the use of the realistic followers you get. I’ll be sure to take note of the spam accounts and try as much as possible to follow as many as I can. Thanks for posting this.

  2. Dear John,

    I am a full-time blogger and Affiliate Marketer. I am totally focused on the organic traffic and recently one of my mentors advised me to focus on any one social media platform. So I have decided to focus on Pinterest since I heard a lot of success stories from my blogging friends on how they generated free traffic from Pinterest.

    While doing some research online on how to get more followers on Pinterest, I come across your helpful and informative post. I got great insights from your post and the pro tips you have provided are very helpful.

    I am bookmarking your post for future reference and Great information, you have really given a lot of value here.

    Much Success!


    • Hi Paul,

      I am glad that you liked this article and especially it added value to you your business.

      I am fairly new at blogging/affiliate marketing, just less than a year to be exact, but Pinterest is helping me get traffic to my blog!

      One Pin

      , for example, gave me over 15k impression while giving me over 150 clicks! That is big especially my average visitor is only hovering at 150. That single Pin gave me 100% more!

      I appreciate that you bookmark my page for more blogs about Pinterest. If you have any specific question about Pinterest for Business, please do not be shy to ask.

      For the meantime, you can visit my Pinterest for Business page to check out all articles that I wrote about Pinterest.



  3. Hi JG, thanx for this! Im gonna try it. Just one question I have: At step number 5 you say, add their followers. Some people have over 1000 followers, should I check every of their induviduals’ pinboards to check if they are real and no spammers?

    • Hi,

      Yes, that would be advisable. It may take more time to do it, but at least you are surer that they are real people who are interested in your niche. Recently, I think Pinterest made a really good job on catching spam accounts though.

      Good luck on your business.
      John Greg
