  • Optimize the profile picture


The standard size of Pinterest profile picture is 165 x 165. Try to provide a profile picture of your own. People love to trust a person more than a logo. Show the pinner that you are not robot or salesman. You are real persons.


  • Express your Personality in About You Section


Most of the people do the common mistake in this section. They usually write the common sentences. Like, you are the mom and small business owner or something like this.

You will get 160 character spaces to write about yourself. Just take a time to write in this section. Try to write something impressive. Don’t forget to include your keyword in your writings.

      Wow, Great Question Indeed. Before providing the answer , I would like to ask a simple question. What do you when you are going to introduce a new people . I think you have understood the situations. In the Social Media it also applicable. Just You are a businessman , Now matter How small or big the business is ! loving dogs is your hobby.
      Now express yourself, See the above example in the picture above.

      “Fashion Design community outreach Coordinator and Senior Fashion Design Consultant of (Company Name)”. I think you will be interested in her now”
