What are Pinterest Followers?
Pinterest Followers are other Pinterest users who are following your account on Pinterest. They find your pins, boards and updates interesting and that’s why they chose to follow your account. Followers see the items you pin showing up on their Pinterest homepage, similar to followers on Twitter will see what you are tweeting about or how your friends on Facebook will read your status updates in their timeline. Consequently, the more followers follow your account on Pinterest, the more exposure your pins will get. More people will see them, will like them, comment on them and most importantly will repin them and thus opening the door for an item to become extremely popular and “to go viral”. Bottom line, accounts with a huge follower base represent a higher authority that adds credibility and trust to your business. These “key influencer” accounts are effectively getting the word out, reaching a much wider audience.
