Want to know how to get the most from Pinterest?

Pinterest is one of the fastest growing social media platforms in the world, and an invaluable resource for designers and makers. So we devoted a whole #folksyhour to it on Tuesday 11 May - and enlisted the help of four experts and prolific Pinterest users to share their tips and answer your questions.

We’ll summarise the tips shared and any other bits of invaluable advice that crop up here in a blog post, but in the meantime if you have any more questions that weren’t answered on #folksyhour, ask away and we’ll see if we (or anyone else) can help.


Our guest experts were Lou Archell, Kat Molesworth, Nikki McWilliams and Tiffany Grant-Riley.

Lou Archell is the founder of Little Green Shed and our digital editor at large. Lou was recently named by Business Insider as one of the ‘Top 10 Pinners in the UK’ and you can follow her Pinterest boards here. She will be tweeting from @Littlegreenshed.

Kat Molesworth is a digital native and social media addict who has been blogging since last century. She is also the co-founder of the incredible Blogtacular – the hot conference for creative bloggers happening in London on 13 June. You can find Blogtactular on Pinterest. Kat will be tweeting from @Blogtacular.

Nikki McWilliams is a purveyor of bold, witty (and often biscuity) design for you and your home. Over 1 million people follow her on Pinterest. Nikki started selling her work on Folksy in 2009 and has since grown her business to become one of the best-known designers in the UK. She will be tweeting from @nikkimcwilliams.

Tiffany Grant-Riley is a freelance interior stylist, creative director and editor of lifestyle blog Curate & Display. She has over half a million followers on Pinterest and will be tweeting from @CurateDisplay.
