3. Use col­or wise­ly: Much of the pow­er of Pin­ter­est is the visu­al nature of the plat­form. Clas­sic col­or  the­o­ry and theme psy­chol­o­gy works strong in the grid style for­mat. Col­or-themed boards will strike  a chord with view­ers and make a visu­al impact; Blue cre­ates trust, Yel­low is cheer­ful and Red equals ener­gy.

4. Offer even more val­ue: Imag­ine hav­ing val­ue-added con­tent such as an eBook or oth­er auto­mo­tive review infor­ma­tion. Pinerly.com claims that pins with call to actions have 80% more engage­ment than tra­di­tion­al image pins.

5. Teach some­thing: Pin­er­ly also says that pins that teach some­thing have a 42% high­er CTR. Link your pins to addi­tion­al pieces of help­ful con­tent with­in your web­site and blogs to dri­ve even more traf­fic and build your brand while doing so.
