If you have taken the Google Plus 30 day challenge, you’ll already know that I am the kind of person that likes to measure progress and activity as you go through the challenge. This is so you can determine what you are doing well and what you need to work on.
It will be no different for the 30 Day Pinterest Challenge
We’ll start by measuring your starting “Pinfluence”
There are a two tools currently available to measure Pinterest Influence, so just pick one and stick with that choice. You shouldn’t use one measuring metric to determine your starting Pinterest influence and another tool to measure your progress. The results will be skewed.
Note down your choice and then measure your starting Pinfluence.
How to use PinPuff:
When adding your username type the part after the / so if it says http://www.Pinterest.com/SarahArrow then SarahArrow is your username.
Then click the teal button to get your results.
This screen shares the results of your Pinfluence.
You can also get a breakdown of how your Pinterest Influence is calculated and the values that PinPuff attributes to your pins.
You can also see a measure of your activity and your reach. Make a note of these so you can see how you are progressing through the 30 day Pinterest challenge.
If you are already pinning you’ll see your top 20 boards chart, where you can see your likes, repins and other data.
Remember, these are your starting scores. The base you are building upon and are expected to be low.
If you don’t fancy PinPuff at all you can always use PinClout to measure your influence on Pinterest. It doesn’t matter which one you use, you just have to stick with the same one. PinClout is not associated with Klout.
The registration process is slightly longer for PinClout
I’ve recorded a quick video showing you the PinClout process.
Again, like PinPuff you can see what boards are performing well and what boards need attention.
If you have the 30 day Pinterest challenge ebook or ecourse, make a note on the back cover or in one of the emails what your starting score is. This is what we will compare future Pinfluence against.
