Pinterest group boards are still huge in 2020.
Especially for blogging beginners, group boards can be one of the best ways for getting blog traffic. Below is my 2.5 months old Pinterest Account. I just got 400 followers at the moment but the performance of the pin is amazing given that I have taken a half-month break in April. Besides Tailwind groups and Facebook groups, Pinterest group boards contribute a lot!
It’s totally okay if you don’t have many followers for your account, cause the key is how many followers your group board has!
If the group board you’ve joined has 4000 followers. Every time you pin an image to the group board, you are putting your pin in front of 4000 people! So your exposure skyrockets from 400 to 4000! It’s just a number game.
That’s why the Pinterest Group board is still a powerful tool in 2020. Despite the exposure, the members of the group board will also share your pins and that’s the power of it. If you want to grow your blog traffic, apply to Pinterest group boards will be one of your to-do lists!
Whilst I appreciate Pinterest group boards, it can be very time consuming to find the right boards for your blog niche and applying to them. I read many blog posts and realized most of them are outdated and some of the group links are broken. If not, some of the groups still exist but already no longer accepting new joiners, like the one below.
Applying Pinterest Group Boards in 2020 isn’t easy at all, there are many requirements for you to join the group board, some asked you to fill in a form from their website while some of the groups ask you to follow youtube account or Instagram account. Even you do exactly what they told you to do, you may not get accepted due to many reasons. Yup, it can be frustrating and time-consuming for many blogging newbies.
I couldn’t guarantee you get accepted to most of the groupboards but at least I am writing this 2020 updated Pinterest Group Board list to make your life easier. Let me do the screening for you, the list below is to help you save time. They are all open (Updated Time: May 2020) so feel free to apply!

1. ALL KIND OF NICHES GROUP BOARD
All niches are useful to blogging beginners due to many reasons. One experience for me is I use these group boards to share other blogger’s content. I joined Facebook threads heavily, in order to get re-pins from other bloggers, I have to share other blogger’s pins as well. When it comes to the pin that isn’t in my niche (let’s say a recipe pin), I can pin it in all niches group board. So, I definitely recommend you guys at least have one all niches group board so it will be easier to join those Facebook threads.

That’s it! I believe this list can keep you busy for long! I suggest you finish Pinterest Group Board Request but divide this mission into the daily little tasks to make yourself feel less overwhelmed. I will suggest you spend 15- 20 minutes a day for drafting the request to a few Pinterest Group Board you want to join. I’ve tried sending over 50 requests a day when I first started the Pinterest account and I definitely not commend you guys to do so, cause it’s quite energy-sucking.
When it comes to the email template for group board request, here’s the example:
Hi ( the name of the group owner),
This is ( your name ), and my blog is all about ( your niche).
I’ve come across your group board ( the name of the group board) and would like to contribute! I’ll follow the instructions, and repin from the board to my own boards to help the other bloggers.
My pinterest email:
My pinterest link:
My blog URL:
Nothing fancy, just remember to be decent and polite in your email! Even if they ignore your email, you don’t have to take it personally, there are many reasons for you not getting accepted. It can be due to your pin design, your niche, your impressions of Pinterest account, and so on. All you need to do is keep applying the Pinterest group boards you like and you will finally get some invite you back!
I hope this post can save you time! If you want to take Pinterest and Blogging as a serious business and want to monetize it at certain point in time, you also have to join the tailwind tribes and Facebook groups. This the combined effort of all Pinterest Group Boards, Facebook Groups, and Tailwind Tribes for me to get the 5.7k Link clicks. It’s not easy but certainly worth it. The stronger the foundation you build when you first start blogging, the easier things can get automized later.
Blogging & Pinterest beginners FAQ
(Please kindly ignore if you aren’t new to Group boards)
Q1: What are group boards on Pinterest?
A group board on Pinterest is a board that multiple people can pin stuff to the same board for collaboration and share common ideas. Group board originally starts as your own individual board, you can easily turn it into a group board by adding other collaborators (sending invitations to them) to that board. Simply put, any board that more than 1 owner is a group board.
Q2: How to join a Group board on Pinterest?
You can join a group board on Pinterest in two ways now.
First, you have to follow the group board joining rules and contact the owner of the group board. They will usually list out the requirements of joining the group board (e.g. Follow the owner’s Pinterest account / send emails/fill in a google form) and it may take one day to 1 month for them to invite you to officially join the board. So please be patient!
Second, for some group boards, you can simply click Request to join next to the board’s “Follow” button.
If your request is approved, you will receive an email and a push notification. Please note that not every group boards has the Request to join button, so for most cases, you still have to request it manually for now.
Q3: Are Pinterest group boards dead?
No, Pinterest group boards are NOT dead. A Pinterest group board is still a good source of traffic and a group board can boost the pin’s impressions greatly and letting more people view the pin. All you need is good content and attractive pin images so the collaborators in the group boards will be willing to share your pin.

1. You can type any wordings on the Pinterest search bar and click “Boards” Option. (Click to see the picture)
