Reach your customers on mobile with Pinterest

ipad and iphone

Learn how Pinterest works on mobile.

Even if you use Pinterest mainly at work, use our phone and/or tablet apps to get a feel for how people experience Pinterest on those devices.

Make your Pins and boards mobile-friendly.

When you create boards and Pins, think about how they’ll look on mobile phones—that’s how most Pinners will see them.

Add the Pinterest mobile SDK to your app.

If your business has a mobile app, use Pinterest’s SDKs for iOS and Android to add Pin It buttons to images in your app.  This can help you increase your Pins and referral traffic. (See how it worked for Poshmark.)

Make your Pins search friendly.

We’ve covered this before, but search is just as big of people’s mobile Pinterest experience as their desktop one, so make sure your stuff is easy for people to find by using thoughtful Pin descriptions and categorizing your boards.

Don’t forget your own site.

Pinterest is a top traffic driver for many businesses, and since most Pinners are on mobile, it’s valuable to think about what your site looks like in that view. When people click through on a Pin to your website from their phone, what will they see? Make sure you’re giving them a good first impression.

Read our new Poshmark case study to see how the mobile fashion marketplace saw a tripling of their Pins on Pinterest, a 2.5 times increase in referral traffic from Pinterest and a tripling in Pinterest impressions.
