Increase Your Pinterest Traffic With Viralwoot

Updated on June 18, 2015

I love to share what works for me. If it makes life better in some way, I can't keep it to myself.

What is Viralwoot? (which used to be called Pinwoot) is a website that helps people promote and manage their Pinterest accounts for free. Yes, you read that correctly. It's absolutely free!

I don't want to sneak any gotchas in later, so I'll let you know now that there is an option for you to pay Viralwoot to help you out with promoting your page, but it is just option.

As I explain more about how Viralwoot works, you may be able to get a better idea of whether that is an option that you would like to utilize or not. Personally, I've been seeing the benefits of using Viralwoot without having to pay them a dime.

You can also use Viralwoot to schedule pins. They allow you to schedule up to 100 pins at a time for free which I think is pretty convenient.

Would you be interested in a free way to get more engagement with your Pinterest account?

How Does Viralwoot work?

When you sign up for a Viralwoot account and attach your Pinterest account, you are given some seeds for free. Seeds are kind of like points or money that you can use in the land of Viralwoot.

You earn more seeds by following other users, liking their pins, pinning their pins, and referring new people to (If you decide you want to use Viralwoot, please click on one of my hyperlinks to the site so I can get some credit).

You can also pay for seeds if you don't want to spend so much time following and pinning, but like I said before, I haven't utilized that option yet.

You have to give away seeds to people who follow you, like your pins, or pin your pins. It will also cost you some seeds to have a pin promoted by Viralwoot so that other users can see it and repin it.

The more seeds you earn, the more you can use as incentive to motivate other Viralwoot users to get engaged with your Pinterest account.

In other words, the more seeds you have, the more you can expect to see your Pinterest audience grow. It's a lot like planting a garden.

That's basically how it works.

Setting Up Your Account to Achieve Your Specific Goals

As you set up your account, you can decide how many seeds you are willing to give for a new follower, a like, or pinning one of your pins. You can offer anywhere from zero to ten seeds.

You will want to adjust these amounts depending on what your main goals are. If you are hoping to get a lot of new followers, you will want to offer a lot of seeds to people who choose to follow you.

On the other hand, if you are like me and are hoping to get a lot of people to pin your pins, you might offer less for followers and more for people who pin your pins.

I started out offering 10 seeds for new followers, because I hadn't really thought through what my goals were and I ended up with 11 new followers over night. As you can see, if you are looking for followers, this is a way to get them pretty quickly.

When I started offering 10 seeds for each repin, I ended up with 13 repins over night.

To be honest, I'm still fairly new at Pinterest as well as Viralwoot, so I'm learning the system (I'm literally speaking from just under 48 hours experience), but from what I can tell, Viralwoot is an easy way to get more people seeing your pins without having to spend a lot of money.

What do you find the most effective in getting more people to see your products, blogs, hubs, etc?

Give It a Shot

If you are trying to get more people to see your products, your blogs, or your hubs, increasing traffic to your Pinterest account could end up making a huge difference for you.

Like I said before, I'm pretty new to Pinterest and Viralwoot, but I figured that since they are both free, it's definitely worth a shot to see how they work in getting my hub traffic up.

Disclaimer: As I mentioned before, the links to Viralwoot in this hub will give me seeds on their website, but Viralwoot will not be paying me any money for writing this. I'm just writing it as a public service to anyone who might be interested.
