Meet 20 of the Top Pinterest Influencers Making an Name for Themselves

Pinterest may not be the first social network to come to mind, but it has a large active group of dedicated fans. In some niches, such as crafts and cooking, it is arguably the most important social network. So it should come as no surprise that the top influencers on Pinterest enjoy massive followings.

Pinterest’s greatest strength is that it was the first visual network – it has been popular for much longer than Instagram. People pin and share pictures that interest them, adding them to appropriate boards. This makes Pinterest a relevant network for brands to consider when planning their influencer marketing.

It is a predominantly female network. 45 percent of online woman use Pinterest, compared to 17 percent of online men.


The ten most popular niches on Pinterest are:

  1.    Home Décor
  2.    Art
  3.    Travel
  4.    Photography
  5.    DIY and Crafts
  6.    Design
  7.    Technology
  8.    Quotes
  9.    Food and Drink
  10.   Humor

If your business operates in one of these niches you should seriously consider working with a Pinterest influencer. According to Pinterest research, 93 percent of the site’s users use the site to help them plan their purchases.

We look at the top twenty Pinterest influencers here.
