Should You Join a Pinterest Group Board?

So you have finally joined Pinterest. Now you are finding your way on Pinterest. You are pinning and have “x” number of followers. That is great. But have you considered joining a group board?


I have several group boards that I have started. One that I am passionate about is
New Technology 2016.Besides the fact that I like new articles and pictures regarding new technology, I like meeting others that share their new technology information.   

Now before I started my own group boards, I joined several other group boards which I still participate in on Pinterest. One that I really like is

Practicing Normal: Parenting/Mom Group Board.

I have found so many informative pins on this group board. I also have pinned on there as well.

Why should you join a group board? I will give you a few reasons.


When joining a group board, you are able to reach a larger audience and also a different audience other than your present one. Remember there is power in numbers. You are able to display your blog or website to a larger group. Remember people from all over the country are pinning on Pinterest. Your product can be seen by more people than just yourself.

Increased Pins

I have observed more pin increases and more followers after joining group boards. The number is still growing. I recently had 420 new pins from other pinners which included likes and new followers as well.   It is definitely great for marketing your products. You are able to pin to that board and your pin is viewed by a larger audience.

How to Join a Group Board

If you will observe at the top of my New Technology board I have the following, “If you would like to pin on this board, Click ADD ME in the comment area. (maximum pins per day is 5) No porn or bad language. Excessive pinners will be removed and/or blocked. You must follow this board also. Happy Pinning." Now once someone requests to be on my board and start following me, I will send them an invite. Once that is done I can add them to my board and they can start pinning immediately.  There is no long wait.

  4. I have a few Pinterest group boards that I host and the activity isn't as high as I would like. It's hard to get people to not just pin but to also pin others' content too.

    Group boards can be super beneficial though.

    Over 40% of my traffic comes from Pinterest... which is fabulous because that means people aren't just visiting new content but posts that are older as well.
