If you haven't delved into the power of Pinterest's ability to increase traffic and boost your business then this simple solution will be a big help! It's so incredibly simple you'll wonder why you hadn't thought of it long ago!! Pinterest marketing is so powerful for your blog and business and using this tip will help increase your traffic quickly.

It wasn’t too long ago that I had one of those major ‘ah-ha’ moments. It was like the glaringly obvious was staring me right in the face and I didn’t even notice. I couldn’t believe that I had missed such an obvious way to increase traffic driven from Pinterest back to my site AND to increase repins…

But before I blurt it out… let me explain how all of this came about.

So I had been looking over my early posts and cringing at the images… (you’ve done it too… but it’s okay, we were all just learning). I so desperately wished I had the time to go back over each and every single one of these posts and rebrand the images to what I am using now… and I will get there… one post at a time.

I also knew that redoing my images would be a great way to rehash my content and give it a new lease on life. After all I’m still quite proud of the content of the posts. I could use the new images to re-promote the posts across all of my social media platforms.

Which got me thinking… what if each of my posts had two images that went out on Pinterest. My old images are already floating around and clearly they were either okay enough that someone liked them enough to repin them or the content was just super compelling. Imagine how many more repins I would get if there were higher quality images to go with the post!!

If you haven't delved into the power of Pinterest's ability to increase traffic and boost your business then this simple solution will be a big help! It's so incredibly simple you'll wonder why you hadn't thought of it long ago!! Pinterest marketing is so powerful for your blog and business and using this tip will help increase your traffic quickly.

So I put my theory to the test and created a new image for my post 45 Post Ideas For Your Blog. I then created a pin for that image and started pinning it as I would all my others.

Within a week that post had more than doubled it’s repins on Pinterest than what it had achieved in the two months since publishing the post. As of now it has more than quadrupled its original reach and remains a post that is one of my highest viewed every day.

Since then I have slowly started creating new images and pins for my older posts and I have seen my traffic increase because of it.

To help you create gorgeous graphics for Pinterest, I’ve even created FREE Pinterest Templates for you to use. Once you download the templates, you can edit them to add your images, colours and text in Canva, it’s so easy! Here’s your templates:

So if you’re seeing a slump in traffic and want to try a new way of increasing your post reach I challenge you to create a new image for an older post and repin it. See what difference it makes. And make sure you let me know how you go, I’d love to hear how this works for you.

  1. Hi! I’m in the first few months of my blog and I love the idea of creating better photos for your old posts. Do you take your own pictures of do you buy stock photos? I didn’t know if that made a difference when your traffic increased.

  2. Hi there! I did this a few weeks back for an old post. Made it picture clear, pretty and added text to it. And voila, it got pinned and pinned! It’s a great tip! Pinch of Yum also hides images in their post, but pins them on Pinterest, so your post does not have these long pinnable images in it, but one featured one, and a few more on Pinterest. I love this!

    1. It really does make such a big difference. I’ve been experimenting with different copy too in order to help refine my headlines. Can really give you a lot of valuable information. Hope it works well for you too! x

  4. Yeh, great tip! I always split test my headlines to see which ones score higher with my audience. I know how u feel about wanting to go back in time and redoing the images. But it’s all part of s journey 🙂

  5. And this is a great way for starters to have more of their OWN pins available for their Pinterest marketing since they don’t have many posts in the beginning to begin with. e.g. if they have 5 posts and they make five pins per post, tgey have 20 pins to share now!!!
