There are a variety of helpful hints that can be useful in getting your garden brand Pinterest boards and pins noticed!

The best way to make sure your boards are found when users explore Pinterest is to incorporate keywords into your pin descriptions, and board titles/descriptions.

Keep your board titles clear and simple.

It will be much easier for users to find the pins they are looking for if your board has a generic title such as “Outdoor Decorating for Fall” rather than a catchy title.

When it comes to your Pinterest board description, you want to incorporate a variety of carefully selected keywords. You also want to be sure to include a call-to-action!

For your pin descriptions, spice things up! Create descriptions that capture attention and tell the most pertinent information first.

3. Extra Pointers

Research the seasonal keywords being used and incorporate them on your Pinterest site.

Be sure to reorganize your boards from season to season so that people can easily find the topics they are searching for.

Get moving and push your fall and Halloween boards to the top!

Repin pins from your favorite, bloggers, fans or publications so that you are joining the action and not only marketing a friend, but you are also marketing your brand.

Now, creating these boards can be time consuming. If you don’t have the time to create a board for each season and holiday, then this is a great time for some media relations.
