Here we go…
How to Delete Pinterest Pins and Boards
Start with one of your boards and audit each of your saved pins. Start slowly and move through each one asking this question, “Does this still serve my market?”
If the answer is “yes” then move on to the next pin. If the answer is “no” then delete. Before deleting, determine if your pin can be updated, repurposed, or repositioned. The goal is to have that pin serving your marketplace again. If the answer’s still “no” it is ready for deletion.
A few things you’ll need to consider prior to deletion:
Are there- any critical links driving traffic to a pin that need to be redirected?
Are there- any ads attached to your pin that need to be paused or suspended?
Are you- referencing that pin in any of your content?
There are more questions you should be asking depending upon your Pinterest marketing campaigns.
How to Delete Pinterest Pins and Boards
Once you’ve answered these questions and your pinning soul has been soothed, you can simply delete the pin. Just know that you are making the right decision removing low-performing pins from Pinterest. It is essential to keep your boards lean and mean and always performing. This goes for each pin moving forward.
Now let’s move into the nuances of why removing pins and boards from your Pinterest account is so important.
- Presentation is everything: If you are using Pinterest to grow your business, you’ve got to consider the presentation of your boards. Think of it like a high-end store would when developing a fabulous window dressing.
- It’s important to make a great first impression: If your pins and boards are monotone, unappealing, and lifeless, bait that visually appealing hook with tasty eye-candy to lure your long-term clientele in!
- Make the most of this FREE tool: Why waste your time having mediocre pins and boards when you have at your disposal a laser-targeted traffic-driver like Pinterest at your disposal. Remember this is a valuable tool that other heavyweight marketers are STILL trying to figure out!
Don’t waste your time and precious resources like that. Please…
Let the click of a button, or shall I say, PIN of a picture do the work for you.
It’s simply good housekeeping to maintain your pins and boards. It’s a step you can’t afford to skip when building a business that is. Deleting stale pins and boards will keep your account from becoming dated, valueless.
There is nothing more irritating than showing up to an event that’s already passed, or a restaurant that’s closed, or worse yet… a ship that’s already sailed! Don’t ask me how I know the last one…
I’ll have to share that experience in one of my upcoming articles. It’s the exact same thing on Pinterest. Imagine your audience finding a great image on one of your boards, their interest is piqued, and they are TOTALLY intrigued by what’s on the other side of that button. Then it happens:
Your pins and your boards are calling cards so deliver them well.
