Growing your followership on Pinterest is mathematical. The equation is as follows:
X Pins/Repins = X Followers

And Yours Will Too!
When I wrote that earlier post I had 680 Pins and 1213 followers, a Pin Popularity Number of 1.8. Meaning that for every 1 pin, I had added 1.8 followers. I speculated that if I added 100 more pins I could get 180 more followers, if the math remained constant.

Today I pinned my 780th pin, and as of this morning my followers are 1307. I did not add 180 followers, I added 94. But I’d imagine that if I waited for a week or two, that number would rise, will my pin number would remain constant. But even if my Pinterest Popularity Number didn’t remain constant – the principle holds. More pins equals more followers. It is that simple.
