I hope you enjoyed this Loom video. Here are the show notes from this episode.
Beginners guide to making Pins on Pinterest
- Create a design on Canva.
I like Canva because it’s free and tall the types of canvases you need are the correct size. I can pull in my graphics easily or use some of theirs. Then download it.
- Drag and drop to Pinterest
Once I have my design made. I go to Pinterest and click create. From there I can drag and drop my design onto the Pin.
- Carefully pick a title
Think about SEO and what you would search as you pick a title. It doesn’t need to be a cute name. It needs to be something they can find.
Add your description. I use at least parts of my description from TpT. There is a word limit. You do need to still think about SEO.
- Utm code – Now you know if people are going to your products because they saw your pins.
Use TpT’s UTM code creator. It’s easy to create a code. You need your product link. Enter your source: in this case, it’s Pinterest. Name the campaign. I name it after the product I am Pinning. Hit create code. Use the button on the right to copy the code. Insert the code into your Pin URL
- Pin to a board
If you don’t have a good board to pin your product to then create one and pin your pin.
Still to learn
I am still working on learning Pinterest. I have a long way to go. Hopefully, over this next week, I will learn some more to share with you. Here is what I am going to be working on this week.
- Pinning to multiple boards/group boards
- See what is successful and what isn’t
- Video pins
By the end of the month, I want pins for all my products which is over 80 products.
