Episode 8: How-To Create Pinterest Pin for TpT

I hope you enjoyed this Loom video.  Here are the show notes from this episode.

Beginners guide to making Pins on Pinterest

  1. 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.

  1. 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.

  1. 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.

  1. Descriptions 

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.

  1. 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

  1. 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.

  1. Pinning to multiple boards/group boards
  2. SEO
  3. See what is successful and what isn’t
  4. Video pins

By the end of the month, I want pins for all my products which is over 80 products.
