If you’ve been following my Pinterest posts and updates, you’ll know that the world of social media and in particular, Pinterest, can be very up and down. When I first started using Pinterest, I was not a very dedicated pinner. It took some time for me to realise just how useful Pinterest is and in particular, how good Pinterest is at generating interest in what you do. I use Pinterest primarily for collecting images of the areas I focus on such as Writing, Film, Graphic Design and Star Wars. Since 2017 I have collected over 20,000 images on my Star Wars board alone and more than 50,000 images in total.
My last update shared the following stats from Pinterest:
PREVIOUS MONTHLY VIEWERS 580.9K
And on the follower side of things:
CURRENT FOLLOWER COUNT – 483
These are my current stats as of today 28/05/2019:
CURRENT UNIQUE MONTHLY VIEWERS 899.4K
CURRENT FOLLOWER COUNT – 575
My goal was to reach 1 Million Unique Viewers. And to clarify, unique views is not the same as engaged, it is merely the amount of views a Pinterest user has had for that time period. I wanted to see if I could break a million views on my account.
I have also increased my follower count and I am not doing anything any differently, I am just posting to my board on a daily basis and this is enough to generate followers. The thing I like about Pinterest is that you can get a lot of people looking at your content and you don’t have to have millions of followers to do it. I know it sounds weird, but it works.
My next goal will be to try and increase the amount of people that are engaging with my content on a regular basis. This is actually the more important area because you want your content to be repinned and engagement is key to doing this.
CURRENT MONTHLY ENGAGED (USERS WHO INTERACT WITH MY CONTENT AND SHARE IT) – 123,216 USERS
These figures will change and most likely will trend downward at some point, maybe even next week but that’s the part I love about using Pinterest, its actually interesting to track your progress and it’s a nice boost to your self esteem as well to know people actually like what you post 😁
I’ll keep things updated for those that are interested, I REALLY want to break that 1 Million!! Fingers crossed 😁
