Some of the Best Group Boards on Pinterest

When it comes to blogging, Pinterest is key to spreading your content! You're posts are great, your graphic are gorgeous. Now how do you share them for all the world to see? The answer lies within this post!

If you’ve been a part of the blogging scene for more than a day or two, you’ve probably heard bloggers preach that Pinterest is where it’s at.

This fact is absolutely true. There are many forms of social media that you can use to share the content of your blog. Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest seem to be the most used among my fellow mommy bloggers. I do use StumbleUpon a bit and I’m trying out Flipboard, but it hasn’t sent any traffic to my blog yet.

Where does most of my traffic come from? PINTEREST.

Nearly 74% of all my readers in the last month have found me through Pinterest. I currently have almost 1,900 Pinterest followers. The runner up is Facebook, who’s only sent 9% of my readers to me this month.

This wasn’t always the case, though.

In the month of August 2016 I received a whopping 676 unique visitors (compare that to the nearly 4,000 I’ve received in the last 30 days) and most of my traffic was coming from StumbleUpon (32%). Pinterest was only accounting for 13% of my referrals and I had about 200 followers.

I really had no clue what I was doing when it came to Pinterest. Sure, I had a Pinterest account. I had boards. I pinned all my pins to my boards and I made sure I was actively pinning other blogger’s pins to my boards, too.

But nothing was really happening. I kept hearing about “group boards” and “collab boards” and I had no clue, at all, what people were talking about.

That was until I somehow discovered Jen Snyder with Women Winning Online. This woman is amazing!

When it comes to blogging, Pinterest is key to spreading your content! You're posts are great, your graphic are gorgeous. Now how do you share them for all the world to see? The answer lies within this post!

I signed up for 3 months of Jen’s Facebook group and it was soooo helpful! She’s there to help blogging ladies like you and me become profitable, money making women!

After joining her group I learned that there are 3 steps in creating a profitable blog, the first being to set a good foundation for your blog. Although I thought I was past that stage, it turns out I was wrong. Thanks to her I was able to complete that step and move on to the next one.

About a month into joining her group, I purchased her eBook, Finding Your Tribe Online. At the time Jen was only offering her eBook (no cool extra options like she has now) and it wasn’t filled with nearly as much information as it is now. I paid $17 for it and it was probably the best investment I’ve made for my blog so far!

Her eBook is filled with great information regarding where to find Pinterest group boards and Facebook groups that fit your niche. There’s a list of top bloggers in each niche and information regarding how to reach them for guest posting opportunities. She even includes scripts that show you how to ask about guest posting, joining Facebook groups and asking to become a member of Pinterest boards!

Today this book costs $67 and I believe it is well worth the money, especially with all the extra info she’s added since I purchased the product myself. Currently it contains 404 group Pinterest boards, 440 Facebook groups, a list of 165 popular bloggers, a marketing plan, email scripts for guest posts, scripts for Pinterest group boards requests and Facebook group introductions, and access to a private Facebook group.

Not sure if this product is right for you? Maybe it is, maybe it isn’t. I don’t know you and I don’t know your blog. What I do know is that if you are a blogger in any of these niches, the eBook is a definite must and will help your blog grow faster than you ever imagined:

  • The Business of Blogging
  • Food
  • Homeschooling
  • Coupon
  • Kids/Family/Parenting
  • Lifestyle
  • Beauty
  • Fashion
  • Health/Wellness
  • Fitness
  • Christian
  • Travel
  • Personal Finance/Frugal
  • Home/Organization/DIY

As you can probably see, I blog about a few different topics. I talk about parenting, I share recipes and crafts, I’m all for frugality and there’s blogging info on my site, too. I consider my niche to be “SAHM Blogger”. I basically just talk about my tips and tricks as a frugal stay-at-home mom who’s living off one income and trying really hard to find a way to make her little blog profitable.

As soon as I purchased FYTO, I went to work. Requesting to join multiple group boards and Facebook groups that felt like they fit my blog well.

My traffic tripled the first day! And it’s only gotten better since then.

NOW ENOUGH ABOUT JEN and FYTO

I love Jen’s product and she’s been super helpful to me for the last 6 months or so, but enough about her! Onto me and what I have to offer you. The real reason you’re reading this!

Sure, FYTO has a ton of niche group boards, but did you know there are some amazing generic blogging boards out there, too?

To be completely honest, those boards are my favorite. Most of them don’t have any crazy rules, you just share your posts with the world! I’m not sure if these boards are better at reaching my target audience than niche boards, I just know they are simple and normally have huge followings.

So, without further ado, here are six of the best, generic blogging boards on Pinterest:

AWE-INSPIRED BLOGGERS – 105 contributors, 2,900 followers

.BLOGGERS UNITE. – 1,100 contributors, 9,400 followers

Pin Your Best Pins – 805 contributors, 13,000 followers

POST YOUR BLOG! – 3,300 contributors, 16,300 followers

Top Blogs – Pinterest Viral Board – 5,600 contributors, 47,400 followers

Writers Blog Posts – 685 contributors, 4,500 followers

I belong to each of these boards, so head over, join them and start pinning with me!
As an added bonus, here are 5 of my own boards that are currently open to contributors:

Blogger Round Up – Just another generic blogging board like the ones I listed above.

Everything Canine – Do you ever blog about your pups? If so, you’d be a perfect fit!

Home Decor DIY – For all you crafty people out there.

Mommy & Wife Life – Anything related to being a wife and mom can go here.

Top Blogger Recipes – I’d love to see the delicious recipes you have to share!

I’ll be updating this list periodically, so I recommend you PIN THIS POST and save it for later! Come back soon and check out my new board recommendations!

HAPPY PINNING!

    Thank you for pulling this post together – I suspect that I’m in the same place where you were before you ramped up your Pinterest game. I feel like I’ve come very far in a few short months, but I know that there’s a huge untapped market on Pinterest that I haven’t put the work into leveraging just yet. Will definitely use this post as a resource!

    Thanks for inviting me to collaborate on your group boards. Please invite me to any other group boards you are collaborating to. In exchange I will do the same for you. I tried leaving a comment on your pin on Pinterest but not sure if you got it. Hope this doesn’t sound weird maybe we could be blogging friends.

    I got my act together with Pinterest group boards in February and my traffic doubled. I highly recommend taking that step.

    FYTO looks like such a cool course! I’d love to take it someday. I must agree, almost all of my traffic comes from pinning to collab boards and getting traffic through my boardboosting. Thanks for the great post!

    I can’t get my head around Pinterest and how so much traffic comes from it (I’ve heard from others that it’s the best way to boost blog traffic). I’ve pinned this for later, thanks for sharing some tips 🙂

    Great article, I have referred to it numerous times in the last week or so. It’s nice to see all the information together in a concise way without having to wade through useless click bait.
