The next challenge then is to make people actually want to follow you and want to engage with you. So how do you accomplish this?
The secret is to remember the basic objective of Pinterest and what users are looking for here. Generally, the answer is that people are looking for inspiration and for ideas. People come to Pinterest to browse images that they can use to get ideas for their own projects, or to feel inspired and moved.
At the crux of any business activity is the need to provide value. If you provide value, then people will have a reason to follow you, to pay for your products and to keep coming back. This is no different when you’re on Pinterest. Here, your objective is to provide value again only this time the way you do that is by providing ideas.
