Where To Find Pinterest Groups And How To Join Them
Are you on Pinterest? No??!? Why the heck not?!! Seriously, you have to get on that gravy train! No lie, most of my traffic comes from Pinterest. It is the best search engine!
Pinterest group boards are a good reason why my pins get so much traction, I have joined several awesome group boards and consistently post my content and other blogger’s content to them with a handy online tool called BoardBooster.
For a step by step guide on how to use BoardBooster and try it yourself for free, check out this post.
Pinning to group boards will help grow your reach, increase your blog traffic, and better your chances of ranking higher on Pinterest.
How Do You Find Pinterest Group Boards?
There are 43 main ways to find group boards.
- Look at profiles of Pinterest users that you follow, check out their boards, and see if they have any boards that have multiple ‘avatar’ images of other Pinterest users on them – those are group boards!
- BoardBooster has a feature where you can look up group boards by category
- Check Facebook groups for anyone advertising their Pinterest group boards
- Check out pingroupie.com, an online directory of Pinterest group boards which you can search for by niche.
How Do You Join Pinterest Group Boards?
Most group boards will mention in the description if they are currently accepting new members. If they are, it will usually list an email address that you can contact. Send them an email simply asking to be added to their board, along with your Pinterest username and email. You will have to follow the account of the board’s creator (first avatar on the board) otherwise they won’t be able to add you!
Bonus: Join my group boards! I am currently accepting new members to:
- Blog Boost (Promote Your Blog)
- Sidehustlers (Ways To Make Money)
- BossBabes (Promote & Support Entrepreneurs, Your Business, Blog Tips)
To join any/ all my boards:
- Follow me on Pinterest
- Then send this form letting me know which boards you want to be invited to:
Tailwind Tribes – You Should Be In Them!
In addition to joining Pinterest Groups, you will also want to join some Tailwind Tribes. Tailwind Tribes make it easy to post to several Pinterest groups at once and are an excellent way to increase your ranking on Pinterest, FAST! Once you are invited into one you have access to thousands of other pinners who can re-pin your content quickly, and you can repin theirs. It is an encouraging way to boost and support your and your fellow blogger’s content. You will be surprised at how fast your pins get repinned once you are in a tribe.
I have a Tailwind Tribe open for members, come join my tribe here – It’s free to join, plus you will get a free month of Tailwind too! Finding more tribes to join is easy from your Tailwind dashboard, once you are in the first one. You can also check out group boards on Facebook to see who has tribes open for new members.
Increase Your Pinterest Reach, Use These Apps:
It is recommended that you be pinning content at least 40 times a day in your Pinterest boards and group boards, to keep your ranking high. Pinning this much would be difficult and incredibly time-consuming to do alone, fortunately there are scheduler apps that can pin to your group boards on auto-pilot for you! I use Boardbooster and Tailwind to do this.
Boardbooster is the best thing to happen to Pinterest scheduling! This simple app will auto-schedule your pins to your group boards without you having to worry about a thing. Boardbooster is super easy to schedule content to be pinned on Pinterest at set times throughout the day as much or as little as you want. I love that I can take 20 minutes on Monday morning to plan my pins for the whole week, set it and forget it! Get 100 pins free here.
Tailwind – I saw a HUGE spike in traffic coming from Pinterest on my ShesBabely blog once I started using Tailwind to schedule my pins. Now I use Tailwind for all of my websites and it’s crazy how much traffic it brings in! Tailwind is similar to Boardbooster in that they are booth pin schedulers, but Tailwind has more features and more in-depth analytics. Tailwind is partnered with Pinterest, so it’s believed that Pinterest and Pinterest’s algorithm favors content coming in from Tailwind, and ranking those pins higher in search results.
