On Pinterest, likes on a pin indicates popularity. The more likes a pin has, the more popular it is. Likes also help out in letting you know how much quality attention (compared to attention) your pins are getting on your followers’ timelines. Getting more likes on Pinterest will also encourage more people to follow you and like the pin. The thinking process is that if a lot of people like the pin, the pinner and the pin are both good. This equates to a follow, like, and maybe a repin. These are some of the many advantages of getting more likes on Pinterest, and without any further adieu, here are the 4 ways to get more likes on Pinterest.
- Build a targeted following. A targeted following is a group of people who are interested in what you pin about before seeing your pins. People interested in social media, business, and blogging are my targeted followers. When they see my pins, they already like the topic which makes them more likely to like my pins.
- Pin the things that you would like. Liking your own pins is a desperate plee to get other people to see a number in the like column. However, if the pin was sent by someone else, would you click on the like button? Send out the pins that you like, and in return, some of your targeted followers will like the pin as well.
- Host a giveaway that requires likes. I got 3 likes and 3 repins in a matter of minutes after I hosted a giveaway for my Power Blogging Training Course. If I extended the date of the giveaway, I could have probably gotten more likes and repins. When you are hosting a giveaway, the prize plays a big role towards how many likes the pin gets.
- Promote your pins on your blog. Your blog is a great place to promote your pins. After reading your blog posts and seeing one of your pins, some of your visitors will like your pins.
