How To Create A Board On Pinterest
- Choose your topics of interest
You know that Pinterest isn`t so huge as other social media platforms used for business. however, an informational flow there is moving with the same speed. So, the first thing you should do is to choose the topics that you will follow here.
When you choose what you want, Pinterest can make better suggestions of who you should follow. Pick topics, then click on the button “Follow people” on the bottom of the page. You will see some static images of people that you are following, based on the topics that you`ve selected.
- Create boards Pinterest account
The next thing that you should do is to choose a pinboard. It could have a title like “Products I love”, “For the home” and others. You can add pinboards with the custom names – just click on the “Add” button. You can create as many boards as you like. There is also an option of editing titles of Boards you`ve created or delete them in one moment.
Allow other people to contribute to your boards by clicking the “Edit” button at the bottom of the board. After that, find the button “Who can pin?” and change the setting from “Just me” to “Me+Contributors”. You have to follow at least one board belonging to a Pinterest member in order to add this member as a contributor to your boards.
- Install the “Pin it” button and just start pingingPin it
When you`ve created some boards, the platform will send you to a page where you can install a bookmarklet named “Pin it” in your browser. Such button is installed in your browser`s bookmarks, so when you find images on a website that you want to pin, the only thing you should do is to click on the button.
The app will open, and you will see a grid of thumbnails of all the images available on the website. Pinterest also gives you an ability to share pinned images through other platforms with the buttons like “Tweet your Pin” or Share on Facebook”.
- Get social
Now, when you have a basic knowledge about what to do with the content on Pinterest, you can start finding, connecting and sharing it with other Pinterest members. With the help of a search bar on in the top left-hand corner of the Pinterest home page, you can find anything that you need – members, images or boards.
Following a board places, it on your Pinterest homepage allows you to visit Board any time to see and interact with any updates made to it. You can put a like to an image using Pinterest`s like button, or you can put a like using Facebook like button at the side of the Pin`s page.
Features Of Pinterest
- Promoted Video
Promoted Video works just like Cinematic Pins, but users can expand the video, view in a new tab, and see relevant products listed below. They be can up to five minutes long; you’ll be charged by impression. (Currently, this feature is only available to those brands working with a Pinterest account team.)
- Native Video
Yup, Pinterest is on the video bandwagon and has been slowly rolling out native video features for its users, two of which are profiled below. (Currently, you can Pin videos from other platforms, but you can’t create videos within Pinterest.) More video features will definitely be coming down the pike.
- Promoted App Pins
Pinterest offers six types of rich pins that allow you to add additional information. One of them is the App Pin, which lets you promote your brand’s app to users. Soon you’ll be able to promote App Pins (you’ll be charged on a cost-per-action, or CPA, basis).
- Cinematic Pins
Earlier this year, Pinterest introduced a video feature called Cinematic Pins. They’re activated via scrolling, look much like GIFs (aka, they’re super short), and can be used for Promoted Pins.
Want to share a Pin, board, or profile? Now you have a few more options: Facebook Messenger, Whats App, and text message.
- Home feed
When you log into Pinterest, you’re now taken to your feed (instead of your own profile). You can easily refine your feed by removing profiles or subjects (look for the “Finetune your feed” prompt).
- Picked for You
To help you find more of what interests you, Pinterest includes “Picked for You” Pins in your feed. Not interested? You can turn this feature off from your home feed settings menu.
