Did you know that over 80% of all pins are repins? This statistic has been all over the place, but not everyone is getting the repins they expect. By utilizing Pinterest very well, you will be able to get more repins.
The best way to get repins is to pin consistently. There was a stretch when I only came out with 2 pins a day for about a month. I did not get a lot of repins for any of my 2,000 pins. I recently started to pin again, and now I get numerous repins every day for my old and new pins. You may be wondering why this was the case.
Here’s why: People forget about new things easily. If you see a new person’s pin once, you are bound to forget about that person unless you see more of their pins. When I decided to pin more, I wasn’t sending out 5 or 10 pins a day. I was sending out over 50 pins every day. Consistently pinning at that rate really adds up towards the total number of pins on your account. As people saw more of my pins, they decided to take a look and repin some of my pins. Some Pinterest users scroll up and down until they see all of the pins for a particular board. When that happens, you typically get 100 messages (depending on the number of pins on that board) telling you that someone repinned one of your pins.
Pinning consistently has its benefits. Getting more repins is one of them.
