So you want to find Pinterest group boards to join? Well then, you have certainly come to the right place. Pinterest is one of my all time favorite sites to drive traffic to my blog + look for all kinds of inspiration. One common misconception is that Pinterest is like all other social medias, which couldn’t be further from the truth. Although Pinterest is technically classified as a social media outlet, it is more of a search engine because there isn’t much of a way to be “social” on Pinterest but that’s a topic for a completely different time. Now without further ado, continue reading on for tips and tricks on how to find Pinterest group boards.
Finding Pinterest Group Boards
Browse Pin Groupie // PinGroupie is a website filled with tons of group boards in every different niche. It’s basically a lifesaver since you can’t manually search on Pinterest for group boards specifically.
Check out what group boards people in your niche are on // I do this quite frequently to make sure that I am on the best and most active group boards. It is important to see what your competition is doing to see how you can improve and make your own business better.
How to Find Pinterest Group Boards
Most of the time, the board owner will leave directions in the board description prompting you on how to join their board. Sometimes you’ll have to follow the owner on Pinterest and message or email them to join. Sometimes they will be accepting new contributors and other times they won’t. Some group boards won’t have any instructions on how to join. If that happens, just keep on trucking on your quest to find more group boards.
How to Know if the Group Board is Worth Joining
Before I decide to officially request to join a group board, I typically poke around to see how other pins are performing on that group board. Now that the aggregate pin count is in effect it’s a little more difficult to see how each individual pin is performing but that’s just the nature of the beast. If you don’t feel like checking out how many of the repins are actually a result of that specific group board, just request to join and see what happens. Worst case scenario is that you can leave the board if your pins aren’t doing so hot.
