After get knowledge about Pins you should know about boards because it is the most important thing in Pinterest.
What is board in Pinterest?
Board is like a folder in which you will collect your Pins; you can add new boards according to your requirements with any name. For example your business is related to ladies fashion and garments you can create boards with different names like “Lipsticks” “Braids” “Stockings” “Tops” “undergarment” etc to differentiate the products or fields you are dealing in. When you pin any image you have to select a board name in which you want to pin, for example you are going to pin lingerie you should select its board “undergarment”. You can create any board at any time; here is the example of different boards
When you will follow a board you will see all the pins on your own wall. If your business has 25 different products you should build 25 boards, one for each product and pin more and more visuals to spread your products and to advertise and market your brand. If you want to go viral on Pinterest you should follow more and more people and boards same like Twitter where more followers mean more opportunities for traffic and business. Build a good figure of followers in Pinterest and show your social media presence to world.
