    Most people are very careless on Pinterest. They will pin/repin images with broken, misleading or low quality "source" links. They don't even click through before repinning.

    What I do then is either looking up the actual source and pinning the image with a proper working link or in some cases I will upload the image to my own site and credit the photographer etc. when pinning it from there.

    Many spammy sites use this technique as well in an annoying manner but you can do it properly without stealing content or putting ads all over the place.

    I love using Tailwind to schedule and use group boards and pinners. It's a great way to keep on top of it and stay organized too. I've noticed more followers and traffic from Pinterest since using it.

    Pinterest is an awesome source of long-term cost-effective conversions via their advertising platform. Unlike other advertisers, your pin (i.e. ad) remains on the network even after the campaign is no longer receiving funds. It is similar to boosting a post on Facebook but the pin is linked to your landing page.

    Think of Pinterest as an online board (https://izea.com/2017/05/29/pinterest-influencer-marketing/). I think of it as a fun way to share ideas and content.
    I would also recommend checking if any links you repin work. I've come across this issue a few times where I pin something I found interesting to find out the page that was linked has been deleted or made into something else.
