If you are a blogger, and you want to make your blog a successful blog, then you know that ONE of the MOST important things you SHOULD do…. is joining Pinterest groups boards! and a LOT of them! 😉
You probably got to this post because you are looking for Pinterest group boards you can join…Or maybe you just don’t know from where to start looking for these group boards!
In this post, I am going to share with you 3 ways you can join Pinterest group boards. (Keep reading to see how easy it is! 🙂 )
Joining Pinterest group boards will take you a little bit of work to do, yep….it’s not a “hocus pocus” kinda thing! There is one way that might be a little bit
“easier”, and the other ones will require a little bit more work from you! (Don’t let this scare you! )
Why you MUST join Pinterest Group boards to have a successful blog?!
Because when you join Pinterest Group boards your pins will get a LOT more eyeballs on them and that will attract more readers to your blog which will increase your page views!
And we know how important page views are if we want to grow our blog to be successful ASAP! Right?
I personally work VERY HARD to get some page views on my blog, and it ain’t easy because with my method (of getting page views through Facebook groups) I feel that there is a LIMIT! Yes, unfortunately, I can’t break the 50-100 page views per day! OUCH!
When using Facebook groups to get traffic to your blog, It takes at least a couple of hours from your day to comment and share within those groups! Yes! It’s CRAZY! I mean, I am trying so HARD to get traffic to my blog, and all I get is 50-100 PV a day?! I mean…what the…WHAT?!
So, back to our subject here, Pinterest Group Boards!
When joining group boards, your pins will get seen by many more eyeballs than from your Facebook group posts that you post each day!
Just make SURE that your pins are eye-catching pins that will make people want to click on them! (Here is a great detailed post that my friend wrote on here blog! With a LOT of great tips! 😉 )
3 Ways you can find Pinterest group board you can join
1. Use pingroupie.com
This website is an online directory of all of the group boards that are on Pinterest.
This will help you find groups in your niche (or something that is relevant to your niche.) by filtering your search.
It’s nice because it shares with you a lot of valuable information on the group boards which will make your life much easier!
For example, you can see how many followers there are in the group boards, how many re-pins, etc….
Here is an example of how I search for group boards: I choose the category of “other” and I Order by “followers” and I added the title: “blog”
You can also see the “Description” of the group boards if you hover your mouse over the “Description”.
If you see that the group board might be a great fit for you and if it doesn’t say that they “aren’t accepting new contributors” try to contact the group creator and ask if you can become a contributor on their group board.
Some group boards will have the joining instructions right in the description and some won’t.
Here is an example of how the “description” looks like :
The problem I found with this directory is that it has a very broad search. My niche is “blogging” I guess that the best fit for me will go with the “other” category filter.
Pingroupie.com is a good directory website where you can find some relevant group boards you might be able to join. The problem with this directory is that it gives you ALL the group boards on Pinterest…
And you might find yourself searching for hours and hours just to find a group or two you might be able to join!
If you don’t have much time to search for group boards like this, then I highly recommend you search for group boards as explained in the next option! 🙂
2. Check out which group boards other popular bloggers (in your niche) are on
This is how I personally find my group boards to join.
This will take you some time and work, but at least you will be able to find relevant group boards in your niche. It will save you hours and hours of searching for these groups in pingroupie.com
Step 1 – Go to the bloggers Pinterest profile and scroll down through their boards.
Step 2 – Find the group boards that they are on (the group boards are the boards where you see a little circle on the left bottom of the board cover as you can see in the image bellow)
- Notice that there is no “Follow” button on the bottom right group. That’s because I am a contributor of that group. So I am already following that group and I also can add my pins on the group! 🙂
Step 3 – When you find a group board that is relevant to your niche (because not all of the blogger’s group boards will fit into your exact niche….but you will probably find a lot of them to be groups you might want to join) Click on the group board and see if you can join the group or if they “aren’t accepting new contributors”
Step 4 – If they are accepting new contributors, read the description of the group board you are interested in, and see what you will need to do in order to join their group board.
Usually, they require from you to follow the group’s creator boards and Pinterest account. To do so, go to the first circle you see on the top (near the title of the group board) and click on it. When you are in her/his profile, click on “Follow”. (This is VERY IMPORTANT otherwise they won’t be able to add you to their group!)
Step 5 – See what are the other requirement you need to do in order to get added to their group. usually, you will need to send them an email or contact them via Facebook or maybe commenting on one of their blog posts.
- Sometimes they will require from you to comment on one of their pins on the group board, but I never EVER got accepted to join a group by doing that! So I suggest you try your luck connecting with them a different way!
You will need to send them a nice email asking them to be added to their Pinterest group board and you will also need to add your Pinterest URL and the email that is connected to your Pinterest account in that email. (This is also VERY IMPORTANT because they won’t be able to add you to their group board if you don’t share with them your information!)
NOTE: It can take a few days up to a few weeks until you hear back from them. If you don’t hear back from them, they might not allow new contributors or they simply didn’t notice your email.
So after a few weeks, if I didn’t hear back from them I would try and re-send them the email again just in case they didn’t see my email. (It doesn’t hurt to try again!)
3. Searching Group Boards On BoardBooster.com
Yep, you have an option to find group boards that are relevant to your niche on BoardBooster.com
This is only if you have an account with BoardBooster. (I currently do!)
All you will have to do is log in to your account and in the top menu click on “Reports” => “Top Group Boards”
Then find your niche (from the list they provide you) and then look for group boards that could be a good fit for you! 😉
Of course, you will need to do all the steps mention above (from step 4 – following the group creator’s boards and sending them an email)
This is how you can find new Pinterest group boards you can join! 🙂
If you are interested in learning an AMAZING unique pinning strategy (NOT using an automated service, like you learn in many other Pinterest courses) I HIGHLY recommend you check out this AMAZING ebook! (I personally read it a few times and implementing the strategies myself!)
To be honest with you, this is one of the BEST ebooks I purchased that is WORTH the time and money paid for it! (Yes! I bought tens, if not hundreds, of ebooks! And this is listed in my top 10 BEST ebooks/courses I have/took!)
