Thanks for the tag @PinterestGabby !
I have found story pins to be great! For me, it is all about capturing an idea or concept that is going to be digestible and actionable by your audience.
As a photographer, I have been taking large concepts and breaking them down so people who are beginning or have not even picked up a camera can learn to start that path.
I have also been pivoting a bit based on trending keywords, or trying to SEO things so they get a bit of a boost.
The response I have been getting is quite amazing, and I love interacting and learning myself from my audience.

Thank you @PinterestGabby ! I'm looking for ways to step outside my comfort zone so knowing other pinners' experiences helps a lot! And I think it's gonna be a lot of fun!

@xbydesign in my experience, story pins are GREAT for building engagement and gaining new followers. Unfortunately, they don't drive traffic back to our websites, but in theory, the increased engagements and new followers will lead to more traffic.
I definitely need to focus on doing more story pins because they get 2-3x more impressions than normal pins. They are more time consuming than regular pins, so it's tough to pump out every day, but I try to upload at least once a week.
One day, I'll hire a fancy Pinterest VA to do this work for me!

@xbydesign I agree with everything that has been said already 👍
So to add in my 2 cents - Story Pins are a great way to grow an audience, get people engaged/inspired/motivated, gain genuine & enthusiastic followers, get your content out in front of more eyes, and it's another fun/creative way to display your message/content.
I put up about 3-4 Story Pins each week and it does get easier and more time efficient the more you do it. 😉
Great page and content!
