  1. I love the idea of collaborative boards! I have Pinterest on my list for the new year – I definitely need to start using it effectively – actually using it at all! 🙂 Thanks for the great tips!

    • Thanks Mindy, I am the same way… I have been trying to do more of it… be sure to get with Jennifer as she has set up a Board for STL… much needed.

    • They are a lot of fun! You’ll love the traffic you’ll see from Pinterest when you build a robust and active profile. It’s a really great way to promote your business. In the new year, I’ll be spending some time in the STL group talking about how to best use Pinterest and Instagram to build your business….

  2. A great article on Pinterest and reall gives value to the how to pin and share the pins which is something I am in the midst of doing. I love the way this article lays out the tips ..I have pins that I am going to repost and Pinterest doesn’t have an aglorytimin.

    • We have one for STL. Since we only do Pinterest twice a month, it may have gotten lost in the shuffle. I’m on vacation now, but in the new year, I’ll be spending some time in STL discussing Pinterest and Instagram, so we’ll make sure that you’re in on the group’s board. But there’s not reason you can’t form a group board with your blogging friends too! It’s a great tool for growth.

  3. Great tips! I am a big fan of collaborative boards. I am part of many and have several that I created. It’s really nice to be able to share your content with other audiences. I do watch how often I pin to these boards though. It can get flooded with your pins if other’s aren’t contributing.

  4. I love Pinterest and participate in a few group boards. I’ve joined the STL board but so far have only managed to share a few of the STL posts to my own boards. I think I should be pinning more regularly and am trying to decide on a scheduler to help do this.

  5. I guess I am the dinosaur in the group, as I have not ventured onto Pinterest yet, although I see how much fun and how collaborative it sounds like it can be. As a visual person and someone who loves to share visuals, I know it would be a great platform for me. It just seems like one more platform to participate in, isn’t on my radar right now. Thanks for explaining more about how great it is to use for sharing and creating boards with others. Thanks Kristen and Jennifer!

    • I can understand the hesitancy Beverley… but keep in mind the amount of time spent. I spend more of my time on STL stuff and doing FB, T or my blog… but a few minutes here and there on IG and Pinterest. Just don’t give up on it quite yet.

    • Depends upon what you mean as far as “consistency” Kata, but it might be worth looking at again and upping your consistency. 😉

  6. Love all the cool ways and reasons to use group Pinterest boards! You’ve provided a bunch of useful information on the why and how, thank you. Admittedly, I don’t use Pinterest often (usually once a week). I know Pinterest works for some businesses, especially products, hobbies, and food, and I love looking at those things on the platform. One day I’ll get around to a Pinterest strategy for my business, and I will include group boards!

    • Great points Meghan and I’m like you a few times a week.. so my time isn’t a lot there.. but I’ve made a presence. We have to divide and conquer our time.. so glad you haven’t ruled it out.

    • It sure is Candess… don’t think of it as neglect… but focusing in different areas.. hope you can dust off it off and get back soon

  7. Pinterest is on 2017 list of ‘t o do better’ at. I haven’t even considered collaborative boards, maybe our group should create on in the new year?

    • Awesome Sonya, and we already do have a Collaborative Board, which is why I asked Jennifer to do this guest post.

  8. I have used Pinterest Collaborative boards and still use a few. I was not seeing enough value, but . . you have given me new insight as to how they can improve my reach. Your last point about reach really resonated with me. I will dive deeper again into this, and appreciate the post.

  9. A great article on Pinterest and reall gives value to the how to pin and share the pins which is something I am in the midst of doing. I love the way this article lays out the tips ..I have pins that I am going to repost and Pinterest doesn’t have an aglorytimin.

    Thanks
