How to Make the Best Pinterest Boards to Promote Your Blog
Start by taking a look at your blog’s category list. Your goal should be to have a Pinterest board for each blog category. You can start with one – pick your primary area of expertise, or the topic you’re currently blogging about. You can always add more later!
Don’t get clever with your board names – use your best keyword phrases! That way, interested people can find your boards via search engines. And that’s a good thing!
Make sure you have a pinnable image with each blog post. Make it simple! Pull a tip or valuable snippet of text from your blog post, and create a simple graphic. These can be text on a solid background, because simple graphics stand out even more against all the photos on Pinterest!
