It has been a strange month. I set some goals at the beginning of 2021 and it’s proving to be a little harder than I imagined. I am determined to post more regularly and then my Pinterest blew up! I went from 500,000 monthly viewers to less than 25,000 in 3 weeks. I wrote to them and they discovered a bug in the system and it seems I ended up in the spam bin! I feel very despondent at the moment and I have no idea if I can get those numbers back. It’s a lot of time and energy lost. On the bright side, I have made a new Pinterest strategy and I will be spending the next month trying to reverse the downward trend! In the meantime, I’d love it if you would follow me on Pinterest.
Update: So my numbers fell by another 50% overnight, leaving me with just 12,000 monthly impressions; down from half a million! It’s hard not to be a bit angry and upset. I wrote again to Pinterest and got another template reply back in which they basically said that I need to create more engaging pins bla bla bla. Well, I am not a social media influencer or a narcissist. I would just like to get traffic to my website which leads to sales on my Redbubble shop!
I have decided to sort of start again, pretending that I am starting from scratch since the change of algorithm leaves me no choice. So, in the past 3 weeks I have gone from zero to 12,000 impressions. Excellent!
