you probably heard about Pinterest, but you don’t really know what is it and how to use it. In this article I’m going to explain you what it is and how it can improve your visibility, increase the traffic of your blog or website and even promote your brand.
What is Pinterest
To make it short, Pinterest is a social media but also a search engine. People pin or save images they found on the web (or on Pinterest itself) and categorize it into different boards (fashion, food, travel, DIY or whatever you want). Many of the images saved on Pinterest are clickable, and open up in a new tab to the original web page where they were found.
Pinterest is completely free to use but you need to create an account to use it.
Create your first board and start to pint
If you haven’t familiarized with Pinterest, you might have the impression like I’m talking chinesse to you.
First, create and setting up your account (business account), now start to save a pin that you found while browsing Pinterest. To do so, just hover your cursor over the pin and click the red “Save” button that appears in the top right corner. You’ll be asked which board you want to save it to.
There is two more options, either you can save pins you have on your computer or what you find on the web.
- Create pin by downloading the image directly from your computer
- Pin it from the web by getting the pinterest browser button, you can save images from the web
