How to Join Pinterest Group Boards

How to Join Pinterest Group Boards

Trying to figure out how to join Pinterest Group Boards can be confusing and adds to the reason why online marketers get frustrated when trying to understand Pinterest. When I looked up information on how to join these boards it did not give me clarity or an easy solution towards doing so.

After taking some time to learn and understand Pinterest myself, I pretty much got it figured out. So with that said I will show you how to easily access/request to get in the group. First I will provide content followed by a video to take you step by step.

Step by Step Instructions

  1. The first thing is to find where these group boards are located. You can easily find these boards by entering a term in the Pinterest search engine. On the right side of the search engine, you will see an option to search for pins, product pins, videos, people, and boards. Make sure you select boards and when you do your search add group in the phrase. For instance, if you are looking to join a travel group board then enter that exact phrase. Sometimes after doing the search it will revert back to pins. Just click on the search options again to select boards.
  2. Just to mention before going further, to distinguish these boards from regular boards you will see a circle in the bottom left corner with people’s faces. There will be two options for joining these boards. Some boards have an option where you can easily request to join, but most will come with instructions on how to join. It will most likely say follow the board and the person who created the board. The creator of the board will be the person on top of the list of collaborators for that board.
  3. If the instructions don’t include an email to send to the person that created the board, then you can simply request and send a direct message to the creator of the board through Pinterest after following them.
  4. And umm…yea that’s pretty much it. Below will be a video if you rather see how to do it.

P.S I am still in the stages of building a following on Pinterest and would appreciate it if you follow me at


  1. Wow! This is really great to see here and I must say that I truly appreciate all you do and all that you have shared here. Well! Joining a Pinterest board may come easy for some but for people like me, I found this post a lot helpful because I have been attempting to join one before. This is great and the video guide too is a lot helpful

  2. Hi, I’m visual and I love Pinterest. I just discovered this platform and I’m finding my way around. There are all these boards that I would like to join. I’m glad I found your post and thank you very much for explaining exactly how the platform works. I think I won’t have any problem.

  3. Hey max, that’s a very short, simple, and absolutely great walk through. I’ve really enjoyed it.

    I was actually looking to join Pinterest Group Boards and thanks I’ve found your article.

    As you said, it can really be confusing haha.

    As a matter of fact, I’m an online marketer so I know what it feels like not being able to understand Pinterest.

    Anyway thanks again.


  4. I’m starting off with Pinterest now, I was looking for more information about Pinterest, glad that I have landed on your website. 

    The information provided by you is succinct and easy to understand. Video has been really useful to see how to actually go about doing it. 

    Thanks a lot for sharing this useful post on Pinterest. I look forward to more of such posts. 

  5. I really never understand Pinterest and the purpose of it. I now see a gold mine. You can actually build your own business around this.  Thank you for the short steps on how to join Pinterest group boards. This was very helpful. Can you do the same for videos, product pins, etc.?

  6. I have been wondering how to join boards on Pinterest, so this is good to see that it is actually not that difficult to do. One just needs the correct information to get started. It is always good to see a video that helps one to understand the steps that are required and it makes it much easier if one then knows where to find everything that is required. 

  7. I have been struggling with Pinterest but maybe because I can’t find time to regularly post my Pins. I have read about joining these group boards and have joined 1 or 2 but somehow, got lost along the way.

    I will try to follow your suggestions and look for relevant group boards again. Do they really help a lot in your traffic?


  8. Pinterest is a difficult thing to understand in the first go. I have myself taken time to understand its working but still not clear about quite few things. Your post comes at the right time to me to understand how to use Pinterest Board.

    Your explanation is bang on the targets and the YouTube video clears all minor doubts. I am going to work this out myself as per your guidance. I acknowledge that this is an eye opener for me.

    Thank you once again for sharing this great post. 

  9. This was pretty awesome. And thorough. I appreciate the insight. I had troubles before, glad you helped to sort it out. I managed to join a few. At least attempted to; I will see whether they approve but I did follow the instructions. So, it should be just a matter of time. Also, the video was a great and useful addition. The way I see it, it made it all just more intuitive and far easier to follow. Cheers.

  10. Trying to figure out Pinterest as a beginner is no easy task. Although some people are able to get it right away others aren’t. That is exactly what happened to me when I first entered Pinterest as it was as if I was in a whole new world. Luckily, I was able to come across blogs and videos that helped guide me through the process but one thing I did not fully grasp was joining a board. This information on this post is very useful as it has helped to simplify the process. This should not be too difficult to do. Thanks for taking the time to write this out.

  11. Hi there Max

    I don’t really follow Pinterest at all and have no idea of what it is and how it works. All I know is that it is great for certain affiliate markers as a source of organic traffic to their sites and or offers. Now I gather that joining these groups is important in Pinterest is important. Why is that? How can joining groups help and with what exactly?

  12. Thanks for sharing. I also joined a group. I know little about pinterest, but every day I learn new cava. On pinterest it works best for me instead. Now I hope it goes even better, after I joined an interest group. It was easy to join me according to your explanations. Good luck.

  13. This is another lovely article, for sometimes now I have been trying to do things on pinterest, is just too complicated  for.

Thanks so much for this step by step method. I will try it today since it is very relevant to me. A lot of people will   be  for this information. I will definitely share to people that I knw will be interested in pinterest.  Thanks.

  14. This is great! Like you mentioned at the beginning of the article, there really is not enough information about Pinterest in general, let alone specialized things like joining group boards.

    Being one of the more confusing social media platforms to navigate, it’s very helpful for you to make it a little clearer with these little roadmaps.

    Keep up the great work!

  15. Max,

    This was such a VERY helpful post and video. I am an Affiliate Marketer myself and recently launched into the world of Pinterest. I have been finding it so very confusing and although I have looked at countless videos, I did not find any that were as clear and structured as yours.

    Everything was easy to understand, to the point that I just asked myself: “What took you so long to get it?” I have followed your video step-by-step and now feel very accomplished.

    Will you be doing more videos on Pinterest?

    How do I start a Board and invite others to join and follow?

    Thank you so very much for sharing your knowledge and time. I truly appreciate it!


    • You have to build your board with quality pins and establish a following before making a group board.  I’ll say aim for 200 followers before creating one.

  16. Having only recently joined pinterest, I was having difficulty joining a group because as you say, it can be quite confusing, but then I found your article and now I don’t have to wonder! Thank you for explaining how the platform works, it’s very informative for a newbie. I can’t wait for future pinterest content!

  17. OMG! I’ve been using pinterest for ages, but not much I guess, and I never even knew about these group boards. They’re a brilliant extra channel. Thanks heaps for showing how easy it is to join and where to find them in the first place. Does each board have its own rules?  

    • Some boards have different rules, but its best to create your own rules for the board on the smart loop through tailwind.  You create your own rules based on how many members there is for a particular board.

  18. I quite have a lot of boards that I wish that I can join on Pinterest but wuth limited knowledge of how the social platform actually operates, it was really cumbersome for me to maneuver my way around things on the platform. This is really great to see and I musts say that I rwlaly value what you have shared here. Personally, this is of great help and thank you so much

  19. Hi, Max

    Thanks for this great article on Pinterest groups. I’ve only recently discovered the platform and I often get lost for hours pinning pics and creating boards. I’d never heard of the concept of group boards before but I can see the benefits, especially after watching the video. It seems a lot easier than joining Instagram groups which are often a lot more elusive.

  20. I recently opened a Pinterest account but i don’t have an in-depth understanding of what its about and what i have to gain. Really glad I saw your page. Reading your post went a long way for me. The video was really helpful and insightful. Thanks a lot for sharing this post on Pinterest. I look forward to more of it

  22. Thank you so much for this informative post on joining Pinterest boards.  This simplifies the process and makes it easy for me to understand.  I must say just last week I was trying to get a greater understanding only to leave the site frustrated and feeling like something must be wrong with me because I just could not get it.  And then came your instructions and the four-minute video with such simplicity that I am beginning to feel like “I got this”. Thank you for sharing.

  23. There was a time I wanted to join Pinterest group boards but I wasn’t able to go about it cos I had little knowledge of it them, thanks for sharing this. Pinterest itself seems a little bit complicated and I doubt if it’ll be so Favourable for newbies trying to use it. Your step by step procedures are going to be very useful.

    • It’s not hard to understand Pinterest, it’s just that information online does not really help and most people sell ebooks to capitalize on those that need help

  24. I love Pinterest and I have found great success with it. At the moment it is one of my biggest sources of traffic. I also found it really hard to find and join group boards in the beginning. Your method works great, except that not all group boards will have the word group in them! There is website called pingroupie which you can use to search for group boards in your niche. Another fantastic way to find and join group boards is by searching for Pinterest Group Board groups on Facebook – people share their group boards in those groups and it makes it so easy! 

  25. Hello there! this is an amazing review you have got here on How to Join Pinterest Group Boards. I find this post very intriguing for me, because my major constrain is finding where these group boards are located which you have provided here for me. Thank you very much for sharing this with me.

  27. Hi Max, 

    I am impressed on your steps you have shown on how to join a Pinterest travel group. I have been putting Pinterest on a K..I.V list. I did not know it has a lot to offer. You have done a great in putting a video to explain the topic.

    I was wondering if one need basic qualifications to join Pinterest. I have join Quora. Very interesting but I have yet to post any comments as the group is too varied and I do not feel comfortable sharing my opinion with strangers. Is it the same with Pinterest? 


  28. Simple, fast and really easy! I have been using Pinterest for over the last 3 years and I didn’t even know this was an actual and accurate thing. It’s not as hard as I thought it might be when I first started reading your article and honestly, I might start applying this method ASAP whenever I have the opportunity to do so. I have been lacking with my posts on Pinterest because I’m not motivated enough, but this just gave me a whole new reason to step-up my abilities. 

    • I am glad this motivates you to take the necessary steps to maximize your affiliate marketing potential and growing on Pinterest.

  31. Hello!

    Thank you for sharing, now I have a better understanding of how it all works!! I am much more confident in how I use Pinterst, thank you!

    All the best to you in return!

  32. I am in Pinterest for like 1.5 months yet this was the first time I heard group boards, what are the benefits of joining group boards. I learned something very new today and I willing to check out what group boards are. I really found your video helpful it was clearly explained. Thank you!!!

    • Your welcome. As far as the benefits for joining group boards go, you will get more exposure for your pins.

  33. Visiting by this article actually convinced me to try figuring out Pinterest once again by using the step by step procedure you’ve enumerated.

    I’ve heard a lot of good things about Pinterest and I believe it is the right time for me to seriously consider this to increase my site’s visitors and grow my online business a bit quicker while establishing its maturity and authority to be benefited from SEO.

    Thank you and be safe!

  34. I am a regular user of Pinterest and I am a member of many group boards. I think you make a good overview on how to find and join these groupboars. However I find it hard to remember all the group instructions on all the group boards. Example: Add a pin – pin another group members pin is easy to remember, but if the instructions are Add a pin every day that is more hard. I do not always have time to prioritize the groupboards. So what are your tips on making instructions to a groupboard?

    • Honestly I do not follow the rules on the board. I create my own rules through tailwind. Its best to see how many collaborators there are for a board before making your own rules.

  35. Hi Max, i find Pinterest totally confusing. But they also have the best images ever. An article on how to join their boards is a welcome read.

    I will at some stage get myself on to Pinterest, but as of now i have too much on my plate.

    Good to know though.
