What to Pin to Pinterest in June

In this post, we look at the Pinterest Pins that performed best last June to help you understand what you should be Pinning this month.

We analyzed all of the Pins from Tailwind members from June of last year and Pinned the ones that received the most Repins to our 11 “trends” boards – one board for each of the 11 most popular Pinterest categories.

We Pinned to these boards in the chronological order that the Pins were published, so Pins at the bottom of the board are from earlier in the month and Pins at the top are from later in the month.  Only the Pins on the board between the Pins that feature the text “What to Pin in June” and “What to Pin in May” relate to Pins that were popular last June.

What Tailwind’s “Trends” Boards Can Teach You

  • Perfect your seasonal timing so that you’re creating content at the right time of year
  • Uncover popular trends referenced by last year’s Pins and recreate their success by referencing this year’s equivalent trends
  • Observe the color pallets that work in the different categories at different times of year
  • Observe seasonal trends in Pin aesthetics: text overlays, aspect ratios and photography
  • Find seasonal keywords in Pin descriptions that may generate Pinterest search traffic
