How to Get a Lot of Followers on Pinterest
Now, before you read my advice about how to get followers on Pinterest instantly, I want you to confirm that I do know what I am talking about. You may find people giving you totally the opposite advice, so it’s good to know who to listen to. At this moment, I have 4K Pinterest followers, but I reach almost 6M users.
Your main concern may be how to get lots of followers on Pinterest. If your goal is to gain 100K followers but only have a reach of 6M, know right now that you’ll be hurting your pins’ performance.
You don’t need followers on Pinterest who don’t engage with your content. It is more important to have huge reach than huge following.
How to Get Followers on Pinterest and Grow Your Reach: The Only Smart Way
Now we are on the same page, but you are still wondering: how can I get followers on Pinterest?
The smart way to gain followers is to find users who have boards suitable for your pins. I.e., if you have a beauty blog and you share hairstyles, nail designs, and makeup ideas, you’ll want to follow people who have the similar boards. Why? Because they are interested in the same content as you.
Once you follow these users, pin some of their content on your boards. There’s a chance they will see it and they check out your account. If they like what you share, they might follow you back. When your pins start showing up in their feeds, these users will be way more likely to pin your content than those who don’t have related boards. This is how to get repins and followers on Pinterest.
How to Find Those People.
How do you get followers on Pinterest if you don’t know where to find them? The easiest way is to look for the keywords you use in your boards. If your board is called hairstyle ideas, put that in the search bar. Then, pin the best content you can find, see who created it, click on the board, and check if the user has more high-quality, related content. Follow any that do.
This is honestly the best way to grow Pinterest followers: finding people who are likely to engage. You will see how fast your account grows.
How to Get a Lot of Followers on Pinterest Fast
I recommend doing the above for 20-30 minutes a day. Pick five boards/keywords to target for the day and pin the content. This will give you 100 new pins. From that, you should follow about 30 accounts. Why can’t you follow 100? For one thing, some pins will have the same account owner. In other cases, the user may not have content similar enough to your own.
Do this for a month and see how your account grows. If you don’t have 20-30 mins a day to spare, outsource the task. It’s super simple and you can easily find people who are willing to make some $$ that way.

Hi, my name is Joanna, I started all the stuff I care about.com blog in Jan 2017. I created posts about beauty, fashion, travel, rabbits, money blogging ect. Simply put: all the stuff I care about. After 10 months I realized my blog is not getting enough traffic so I dived into research. Till Oct 2017 I only had around 700 visitors on my blog per month. Then I implemented my Pinterest strategy and automated my pinning with my own build tool – PinMeApp. In Nov 2017 I got 3300 page views and then in Dec 2017 8500. That is how my app was born: PinMeApp. I wanted to help others grow traffic to their sites as well. Today I offer subscription for my app, but I also teach people my Pinterest strategy, step by step what I did to grow the traffic so fast, so that my blog is now getting around 20k page views each month. I also offer Pinterest Management and implement my strategy for brands who want to reach their audience on Pinterest as well. My Pinterest account reaches over 5m people monthly. If you want such results feel free to contact me. Cheers, Joanna
