4. Be regular

Be regular! You need to be active at your board and keep pinning. You need to storm the home page of your followers. Pinterest has tie ups with Facebook, Twitter, Behance, etc. where you can spread the word. Follow other boards so they notice you and follow you back. Create several other boards and categorize them so that things are not cluttered for your viewers.

Include keywords naturally but also provide information to reach your blog link, website link or portfolio link. You can also add contact details to reach you.
