the ultimate guide to pinterest group boards

Are you ready to take your Pinterest marketing up a level? You already know that Pinterest is a huge part of earning tons and tons of passive traffic to your blog and you've read countless times that participating in group boards is a major key to the strategy. But, have you quite mastered your process?



When I came back to blogging earlier this year, I was so overwhelmed by Pinterest marketing.



Group boards, Tailwind, manual pinning, caption SEO, rich pins, automation, a/b testing, font choices, algorithm changes, the SmartFeed. IT WAS A LOT. It still is a lot! After I read up on group boards, though, I quickly got the big picture. BUT, I knew that I had to organize my process.


I was pitching around 20-40 boards a day to see if they'd add me as a contributor. I was rapidly adding content to my blog, which meant I was adding more and more original pins to my boards on a daily basis. Once I started getting added to group boards, I suddenly had a lot more to worry about: pin scheduling, board rules, repinning external content.



That's why I created a spreadsheet for myself. To, you know, stay sane. It was a super basic Google Doc just for me. In it, I listed a few major things:


  • Which group boards I had pitched myself to and when
  • Which group boards I had been accepted to and what I could pin to them
  • Each of my blog posts, which boards I could post to, and when I last posted



After I got to thinking a little bit, I realized that something like this could benefit other people just like me. The ones who are blogging on the side, who just got home from an 8+ hour day of work, with groceries on the counter, dinner yet to be made, and the gym crying out for attention. ANYTHING to save time and to stay organized.
