Last year I started to really buckle down and start in on Pinterest. To me it was always one of the least interesting social platforms but after reading more about the platform and finding stats on who actually was using the program I decided it was actually the perfect time to jump in. The platform does mostly consist of women but it also has a male portion that uses it, take this in mind when creating your Pinterest posts. Also the Analytics on the platform are simply awesome and make it fun/game to try and see how many views and reach you can get month over month.
In this post I will be going over some of the above in detail but the primary focus will be on the optimal sizes for Pinterest posts.

The optimal size is 735 x 1102 and creating such images are easy to create for blog posts, products and services you might offer. I would recommend using Canva which is free to use and already has a number of great templates you can use that are the correct aspect ratio and size for Pinterest.
Sticking with this size will help optimize your posts to take up the most real estate on Pinterest. In terms of boards people are visiting and when they first come to their home page based on recommended pins. Keep these pins flashy but also clean cut but leave them open ended to encourage people to click on your pin to learn more (which will lead them to your blog or website)
The amount of stats you get from this company are legit crazy and after a few days you will start to see your views per month number. While this looks great it really is not a number you should care all to much about. The number you really want to look at will be your “Activity from “site”” where site is replaced with your core domain of your business listing. This will require a business account I would highly recommend setting one up by clicking here.
Now the biggest kicker is the amount of time you could end up on this social network. But there is also a method to the madness so let me help you with that right now.
Yes, Pinterest does care and factor in how much time and activity you spend on their platform. It is important to each day login, browse and comment/visit a few posts that are of interest to you. However you can automate the other end and that is your postings. This is done via a program called Tailwind which you can join free by clicking on the button below. It will save you a ton of time and allow you to automate your posts, give you better insights on traffic and figure out the optimal times to be posting.
