How To Audit Your Pinterest Account

How To Audit Your Pinterest Account

How to

I took a step back recently to try and find out why my Pinterest business account wasn’t sending the amount of traffic I had planned to my website.

I allowed myself an hour to research via Pinterest, 4 hours later and I still hadn’t found a solution until I came across Nellaino a photographer and lifestyle blogger who has over 630,000 followers. I know, a staggering amount.


Nellaino offers advice and tips on how to audit your Pinterest account via Fiverr.  Prices start at $50.

It turns out I have a lot of work to do! 9  breathtaking pages of advice but hey that’s what I paid her to do and yes the truth hurts.

I’m sharing with you a few major points that I need to address. I hope it helps.

  1. Pinterest profile – Include your business name, keywords, verify your website and a brief description of who you are and what service/product you offer.
  2. Branding – Look at your boards with a critical eye. Do they say who you are? Make sure you have a coherent theme throughout your boards (does it match your website). Look at Nellaino’s Pinterest account Cici (Pinterest for business guru) it’s white/clean/pastel shades/stunning images. Then look at her website, it conveys the same message. So decide on your style/colour/theme and make your boards stand out. Have a min of 20 boards, 50 pins in each and put the most popular at the top.
  3. Pins – study and I mean really study it. There is so much you can learn and implement immediately. You are basically telling a story through your pins, what kind of lifestyle do you want. Don’t forget to include your keywords in your pins. Remember 80/20 rule. 80% repins and 20% selling your own brand.
  4. Audience – search your keywords and see what people are pinning in your niche. Look for pins that have a high repin, repin them yourself changing the description to include your thoughts/ideas and keywords. Click on “popular” (top right hand (8 small bar icon) of the search bar)) to see what’s trending then create a board on that subject. Don’t forget to add a board for national holidays UK & USA.
  5. Be active on Pinterest, Pin 30-50 pins a day and schedule them if you can using www.tailwind (Nellaino has an affiliate link which gives a month free ) Join groups relevant to your niche Plan your boards first using secret boards. Use 200-300 words when creating your own pin using your target keywords.

These were the major ones for me, I hope they are of some use to you.

Good luck and I’d love to have a chat to see how I can help you.
