I have been a lover of Pinterest for as long as I can remember. I could easily spend hours a day scrolling through the beautiful images on there. But as an entrepreneur (or mom, wife, responsible adult), I don’t have hours a day to lose.
I am not a Pinterest expert and I will NEVER claim to be. In this blog post, I am going to show you how to create a pin that you can post on Pinterest. First I really want to share with you some of the benefits of being on Pinterest.
I know that it probably feels as if social media is taking over your life. Especially when it comes to sharing your blog posts. You want to attract readers and get your monthly views up so being able to reach your ideal reader is crucial.
Pinterest is a search engine. This search engine is made up of visually appealing graphics for ANYTHING that you want to look up. I have now started using Pinterest more than Google. I love all of the blogs and websites that it gives me. It feels like fresh information for me to soak all in.
A FEW PINTEREST MUST KNOW FACTS
These facts come from the website, Blogging Wizzard.
The life of a pin is 1 week. That is compared to 24 minutes for Twitter and 90 minutes for Facebook.
Each pin can drive up to 2-page visits and 6 pageviews.
A pin is 100 times more spreadable than your average tweet.
It’s amazing these statistics. Just imagine how much traffic you can drive to your website if you dedicate time to focus on Pinterest.
I have turned my keywords into my Pinterest boards along with my other interests. Again, I am no expert. I am teaching you how I like to do Pinterest. My Pinterest boards cover all of my interests that I have not just my business-related ones. I believe that I am more than my business and I want to showcase who I am through my boards.
So now let’s get down to business. This post is all about HOW to create a pin for Pinterest. I will take you through the creation stage using the Pinterest pin template from Canva to publishing it on Pinterest. There are tools that you can use to publish to Pinterest like Tailwind but today I am going to show you how to do it directly through Pinterest. I love to use the direct through Pinterest because they have the option to schedule your pins at a later date. So if I have an hour set aside, I can create a bunch of pins and get them scheduled to automatically post. I hope that this video helps you to build your Pinterest boards.
