Arranging boards by color is another great tool for a designer’s board. Make sure your boards consist visually stunning, funny or interesting imagery.

However, you still want to make sure that you are pinning on a daily basis. Make sure your followers can expect Pins from you. This makes you more enjoyable to follow. Besides pinning regularly you also want to make sure you don’t have empty or half full boards. You want people to know this is an active account and they expect new content if they follow you.
