The Pinterest social network is far reaching.  More than you may know.  Make sure to have a Pin social share button on your Blog.  You can add this by going to Settings and Sharing page.  If you have the Pin share button, make sure you Pin your content from your Blog.  By using the Pin It Button, every single one of your pins will include a Link back to the source.  This means that Pinners can encounter your content and link back to visit your Webpage or Blog with just one click.  Keep your Pinterest boards on topic and try to follow a theme.  Follow boards of users that you would want to follow you back.  Using Pinterest can help establish your brand.  Try to remember your target audience and come up with content that will be helpful and may offer solutions to your audiences problem.  Content is about starting conversations not just campaign marketing.  Depending on your product or service, color boards are often interesting and fun to follow.  The average Pinterest visitor that will look at a board may browse up to about 200 to 300 Pins.  After that interest level goes down. A board with 10,000 Pin may be impressive at first but when visitors start to browse through your Pins chances are they will be onto something else by Pin number 250.  Break the board up into categories and create several boards not just one big one.  Use Pinterest to your advantage and Happy Pinning !
