Reasons why you have to use Pinterest

Blog traffic

More than 70% of my social traffic comes from Pinterest. Uhmm… Excuse me? You are missing 70% of this traffic by not using Pinterest.


On Pinterest, you can find a lot of inspiration. While you are looking for pins to pin, you get a lot of inspiration.


It is super easy to use Pinterest. I am currently using Tailwind, a super handy website to schedule thousands of pins. Currently, I have scheduled around 3500 pins ready to get pinned and that goes automatically. This is why it is super easy to use Pinterest. Click here to read more about Tailwind.

redenen waarom jij Pinterest moet gebruiken

You don’t have to think about it

Don’t you have time one day? For Instagram or Facebook, you definitely have to make time free to promote your blog. Luckily that goes all automatically with Pinterest. You don’t have to pay any attention if your pins go online because this goes all automatically (well, when you schedule your pins of course ;)). I always make an hour a week free to schedule pins for around two weeks.

Without pins you even get traffic

Yes, you hear it right. Even without pinning, you get a lot of traffic. A while ago I was in Madrid and I forgot to schedule my pins. Still, I got around 40-50 unique visitors from Pinterest on one day. It is a nice feeling that I always get traffic from Pinterest.

Do you use Pinterest already?

    Wow, ik heb er nooit aan gedacht dat Pinterest ook ingezet kan worden om traffic te genereren. Ik ga je gelijk even volgen daar en zelf aan de slag. Dank je wel!

    Heel nuttig, bedankt! Ik ga me er ook eens in verdiepen, ik had al een persoonlijk Pinterest maar nu heb ik er een voor Lazy Bird aangemaakt ook.

    Ik heb een paar weken terug pas een Pinterest-account voor m’n blog opgezet. Iedereen is er zo lyrisch over! Voordien kende ik het platform alleen van persoonlijk gebruik. Binnenkort ga ik er eens goed voor zitten, want het lijkt me écht de moeite.
