Getting started #2: Add inspiring Pins

Anatomy of a Pin

Now that you know a bit more about how Pinterest works, let’s dive into Pinning.

How can you add Pins?

  • Pin things from your own website
  • Pin things from Pinterest categories that relate to your business
  • Search for things to Pin with specific keywords

Pin things from your website
Share the best content from your website, like product images, blog posts and more so that people can understand what your business is all about. The easiest way to add Pins from your website is by getting the Pin It button for browsers.

Useful Pin links
Make sure your Pins link back to somewhere helpful, so that Pinners can visit the website where the Pin originated and take action.

Thoughtful Pin descriptions
Every Pin should have a written description that gives context. The best descriptions help people imagine what they might do
with the Pin while also providing extra details.

Pin things from Pinterest
Another way to get people to repin your stuff is to be an active Pinner yourself. Follow other people’s boards and repin things that relate to your business. Think of your Pinterest boards as a place where you can save ideas and inspiration for your audience.
