Tips on How to Join Pinterest Group Boards and Get More Followers in 2019Updated: January 31, 2019
Joining Pinterest Group Boards is a must nowadays!
First, I would like to start by saying I found that Pinterest Group Boards are amazing , so I want to share with you the way I was able to start joining and bringing traffic to my blog.
Furthermore, I would like to add that there are many ways to join and it can be very frustrating at first, but with the right guidance, you'll be saving time and you'll find it less frustrating.
I am not sure if everyone knows what Pinterest is or what a Pinterest group board is, all I know is that I didn't actually have a lot of understanding about it before, so I would like to explain it to you the best way I can and then go into more details about the whole procedure of joining Pinterest group boards.
Pinterest is a website and a mobile application free of charge, which only asks for registration to be used. Moreover, it was founded by Ben Silbermann, Paul Sciarra and Evan Sharp.
Its members can save, upload, sort, and manage pictures that are known as pins and other media content like videos, through assemblages known as “pinboards”.
The content can also be found outside of Pinterest and likewise, it can be uploaded to a board through the “Pin It” button, that can simply be downloaded to your bookmarks, or be implemented directly on the website.
A group, or a group board, are both something a Pinner can own and give permission to one or more other people like him/her, to add Pins to its board. So basically a group board contains pins with information about the specific topic it has.
You can either follow a group board and appear as a follower of the owner, or you can join it and appear as a contributor of that group. All Pins of the group board from all its contributors are shown in the home feed of every follower.
The reason most people who have successful group boards are looking for contributors is because all contributors are bringing more potential and exposure to their Pins, hence more traffic to their blogs and business.
Therefore, the same goes for you, if you join a Pinterest group board. Group boards are the best way to drive more traffic to your site because your pins are exposed to a larger audience.
Moreover, reaching a lot of followers without group boards could take years or could not even happen, so joining a group board is definitely the best way, especially for new users. They are amazing, but even so, you could join hundreds of group boards and pin like a professional and still not gaining any success from them. Therefore, the key is to join good ones.
I think there are about three ways you can find group boards, but I believe only one of them is actually helpful.
One way would be to see which group boards the successful competitors are contributing to and then try joining them. If you're just getting started and don't have any idea which of them to follow you can search for what you're looking for and check out the people from that list. Most group boards are showing at the very bottom of the page, the way to identify the group boards is to look for a little circle.
Another way is to check some of the Facebook groups full of people who are interested in finding group board contributors.
Now, last, but not least, the best way is to go to Pingroupie.com. Through this website you can find group boards using keywords in the description or in the title. Furthermore, you can also search for group boards based on the number of followers, repins, contributors and much more.
I've filtered the results by the highest number of followers and entered “Blogging” as the search term for the title of the group board. Then I'll start looking for a board without too many collaborators, but lots of pins. It's clearly hard to see what the repin or save rate is, so the best thing to do is to actually take a look at each of them and check their quality.
One thing I've noticed is that it will only show you group boards that have more than 250 followers, 5 or more contributors and at least 50 pins. That is rather excellent, because it is making it quite clear for you and you can tell what you need to look for when searching for successful group boards.
In order to create a group board on Pinterest all you have to do is click on your profile button at the top right corner of Pinterest, then click the create a board option at the top left side of your list of boards.
Afterwards, you have to choose a name and category for your board, you can also choose to make the board secret and invite others to join your board. Then, click “Create Board” when finished to create the board.
After you finished locating the group boards you desire, you of course want to join them, so in order to do that, you can start to leave comments on their pins.
It is crucial that you follow the instructions given by each group board, because those instructions vary from group to group, so you need to ensure you follow them closely.
If the possessor of that group board has a blog or a website of their own your, you can visit those websites and leave comments there as well. That way you can get noticed by them.
Another way would be to see if that owner has an e-mail address in the board description so you can start writing an e-mail letting that person know you would like to contribute to their board. One of the best tips is that you wanna follow the person that created the board, and then follow the person's board.
Usually, most group owners are only interested in members that are actually focused and are real contributors, therefore you need to make sure you leave a reason why you think you would be helping improve their group boards.
Furthermore, it's essential to mention the exact group board you are interested in and put your pinterest link and e-mail address so that they know you're serious. Make sure you put the right e-mail address and that you keep the e-mail short and right to the point.
In order to see who the owner of the board is, all you need to do is look to the very far left icon or the very first icon showing at the contributors option.
There are also times when you might receive an invitation to a group board right in your Pinterest inbox, although that rarely happens if you are a beginner.
The last way to actually join a group board would be to get invited by another member of that group. Basically, if you have a friend that is a member of certain group boards, she or he can invite you.
The same applies for you, if you're a member of a group board. Although, some group boards don't allow that, and you can get banned for violating the rules. Hence, you need to make sure that the person you invite is credible and someone you can vouch for.
The best thing is to double check with the owner of the group board whether it's okay to invite others.
If you are a beginner just like I am, as you start sending messages and e-mails, and leaving comments you will notice that not everyone is going to get back to you, so it's best to try joining as many group boards as you can.
Let's say you usually start sending requests to 30 group boards per day. Doing so you will notice that you may only get answers and invites from 5 to 10 of them, so don't get discouraged by that.
Most of those owners are busy, or they might have inactive accounts, or too many contributors. That is why it is essential that you move on and keep doing that over and over again until you reach the number of group boards you want.

1. Post original pins
Most of the posts on Pinterest are actually repins, so basically it means that posting original content is the perfect way to stand out.
Here are some examples of what you can post:
– Original images;
– Content (preferably, original content);
– Infographics; – Funny photos;
2. Follow people
Following people will get more followers on Pinterest, so make sure you do that on a regular basis.
3. Repin content from others
It's hard to find enough posts if you only pin your own content. Therefore, re-pinning content from others is an important marketing strategy on Pinterest.
That way you can also get noticed by the original source of the content and have them follow your page. Furthermore, it's crucial that you edit the descriptions on your posts and add your own keywords on the material.
4. Always use keywords in descriptions
The way you pin images is just as significant as what you pin. Therefore, you need to make sure that you use relevant search terms in your descriptions. It's important to remember that your keywords should be terms people search for on Pinterest.
In conclusion, finding and joining Pinterest group boards is essential for your marketing. Therefore, I hope I made this as clear as possible for everyone. Moreover, I believe you will find this very useful because it is a great way to contribute to your marketing.
