I also showed users how to fill in basic bio information and talked a little bit about saving Pinterest Pins. This is important for anyone who wants their brand or products to be found.
How can you make your Pinterest account stand out so you can sell your products, goods, and services on Pinterest? You want to get a share of Pinterest’s social traffic and get the attention of its high converting followers. The next video in the series, How to Set Up a Pinterest Account Part 2, gets more in depth about how to save a pin on Pinterest and what to save and the differences between Pinterest desktop and the Pinterest mobile app.
What do I Pin?
Pinterest Pinners can upload an image, take a snapshot if they are using a mobile device, or even upload an image from their photo gallery. Desktop and mobile users can pin images from websites using the browser button or their Pinterest. Remember Pinterest used to call it the “Pin it” button, but now it’s the Save button. Graphics, images, photos, and infographics are all Pinnable!
Be sure to fill in the description. Try to use up as much of the text area as possible. Pins with longer descriptions are more likely to be shared.
Boards are Pinterest’s ways of letting you group your Pins into categories. Name your boards after search engine optimization (SEO) friendly keywords. Sure, you can name the boards anything but if you want to be found, then you’ll have to optimize the names Make boards easy to discover. Also, be sure to change the cover images often.
