How to Set Up a Pinterest Account Part Five – What to Pin
Hey Pinners! If you have been following along, we’ve been working on a series of videos and blog posts that revisits the basics of a Pinterest account. Yes, this has been covered before but Pinterest engineering has made many changes to the social media channel over the past year, so it’s time to refresh the information.
Previous videos contain information about boards, categories, verifying a domain name and filling out text descriptions so your Pinterest can be found. The video below talks about how to set up Pinterest Boards and covers what to Pin on Pinterest!
NO matter what your goal is on Pinterest – entertainment, to drive traffic to your website, interact with other users – adding some boards and Pins that contain the popular topics will help grow your following. The popular topics on Pinterest include food, recipes, DIY, home décor, and fashion.
Tall images get more saves on Pinterest because the aspect ratio makes them stand out more. Try to use images that are taller than they are wide. This takes up more real estate on the social channel and is more readily seen by other Pinners.
Be sure to fill out the description completely and use up as much of the text area as possible. Next, use hashtags in the description. This makes your text description clickable and searchable.
Since this is the fifth video in the series, you may be interested in videos one through four. Below you will find help on how to set up Pinterest from the basics like logging in for the first time, to verifying your account, and then how to save your very first pin! Each video has something new!
