Slide 56

INSPIRED TIPS Pin your most popular pins to group boards that have a strong following and are a good fit. PinGroupie and Board Deck boarddeckhq.com are tools that can help you find group boards. You can also use Pinterest search to find group boards. YOUR MOST POPULAR PIN POPULAR GROUP BOARD Matt_Siltala
