I’ve mentioned this before but everyone wants more traffic to their websites. It’s one of THE biggest things that my tribe talks about and what they NEED to increase sales and income. When I talk about my tribe, I am of course referring to my email list. My mini community who I love! Seriously, I know a lot of them and I make a huge effort to engage with my list.
I’m sure you’ve heard “the money’s in the list” absolutely everywhere. Especially if you’ve been researching how to make money or more sales on your blog.

The reason the money is in the list is that you should be visiting your subscribers every week with a great email, which builds the ‘know, like and trust’ factor. Your email newsletter subscribers are more likely to buy from you because they KNOW you, they LIKE you and they TRUST you. They’re also more likely to purchase from you if they’ve bought from you before.
If you want more quality, targeted Internet traffic to your website then you need be on Pinterest. As soon as I launched this blog in April I was on Pinterest and Tailwind is one of my favourite tools for scheduling Pinterest Pins in advance. It also provides powerful analytics to help you pin viral content on a regular basis. It EXPLODED my Pinterest views (by 7 million %):
Many people with blogs constantly thrive for more traffic. Convinced they’ve tried all the marketing techniques they could find. If bloggers followed a few simple and really effective marketing techniques, then they would probably find that there is a willing audience just dying to read the content that they spend so much time creating.
If you plan on reading the sub headings and skipping the rest of the content because you’ve ‘read it all before’, at the very least, make sure you read the tips provided under each heading. Those tips are THE secret behind the proven success of these marketing techniques. They’re what helped me get over 1000 views in my first month with a brand new blog, and it doubled in the second month.

Pinterest is my FAVOURITE marketing tool. Hands down. Judging by the reaction to last weeks post, How I Grew My Pinterest Views By 9000% In One Month, a lot of you find Pinterest rather mystifying. One of my first essential blogging tips is all about joining Pinterest group boards and Tailwind Tribes. They are my “go to” marketing tool because of the potential virality attached. When Group Boards are used strategically, they can drive a LOT of passive traffic back to your blog or shop on a regular basis.
Over the last week, I received a lot of questions in comments and in Facebook groups, the two biggest being,
“How do I find group boards to join?”
“How many group boards are you part of?”
Pinterest drives 100,000 monthly visitors to my craft blog alone. That’s just from Pinterest. I do get traffic from a lot of other sources but Pinterest has the biggest chunk of the pie. Around 70% and that’s all thanks to Tailwind Tribes and Group Boards.
