Pinterest Idea for Getting Your Board Noticed!!!

Ok, I'm sure I saw this idea somewhere and just finally made the connection in my conscious brain, but here it is. On Pinterest, you can choose which item you want to be your cover. This picture essentially represents your board and is supposed to catch the eye of people glancing through and deciding what they like. My NEW idea is to post a cover that includes the title of my board and a link back to my Pinterest board so that as it gets repinned, people get directed back to me.

I started working on the eye-catching cover pages and came up this (see picture). First, I made the border. Then I put black for the outside background color. Found a cool font I liked ( and combined it with the border. I went with a green, yellow, orange, and pink color scheme partly because three of those colors match my logo and partly because they're fun, bright colors.

The colors pop out at you and you know right away what the board is about. When pinned to another board, I'm hoping it will continue to catch people's eyes with its simplicity in design and bright colors.

NOTE: Since I pinned these ideas 30 minutes ago, I've already gotten 5 repins and a new follower. Just a thought! :)

UPDATE: Since I posted this 2 weeks ago, I have gained over 50 new followers. It's working!
