Uploading to Pinterest

Blythe Klipple

Moving is not conducive to maintaining a stamping business—packing for the move and then unpacking after the move.  That said I am FINALLY working my business and wanting to upload some cards to Pinterest.  I have a few questions:

1- how can I add a click-able url to my photo?  I know how to do that for my blog posts but not for Pinterest.
2- Do you still add points relating to the card with a “ | “ (pike) between the points?
3- what do I need to know so my pins get some traction?
4- is there a ‘catch up’ guideline somewhere.

Many thanks gals.  I feel like I’ve been way out of the loop for months, like since last July/August and I’m anxious to get back into my stamping life.

1. Adding a clickable link to Pinterest images   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vHk2hfo0H-0 or  https://www.askdavetaylor.com/how-do-i-add-a-url-to-a-pinterest-photo-pin/
Other help

Use Keywords in Descriptions

How you pin images is just as important as what you pin. So use relevant search terms in your descriptions.

I use the Pinterest search bar to look for images, so I can get an idea for keywords to use in my Pinterest descriptions.

Remember: your keywords should be terms people search for on Pinterest. 
Hope this helps

Girlie - you could have called me for this! I will share here for all.

I recommend Tailwind for Pinterest. It does have a small monthly cost but it makes leveraging your content on P SO much easier. That said, if you don't want to incur more expenses (and you know I am LOATHE to encourage people to spend!) here's what I recommend.

First, be sure you are pinning from a "live" page if you use the PinIt button - don't pin from your preview page. When you do this, Pinterest pulls over the permalink for that content making the image clickable. 

In the past year, Pinterest has added a LOT more AI that is able now to "read" pin descriptions so using the separate keywords with the pipe between each is no longer necessary. It still works but remember, we write for the readers and code for the bots. So pack that description with as many of the keywords you were going to use.

Pinterest itself says don't bother with hashtags. If you have ones that you know are performers, there's no HARM in using them but you are far better off putting the time and effort into finding those hyper-relevant, magnetic keywords than anything else.

Use text overlays when you can - they are proven to be huge attention grabbers with higher repin and sharing stats.

Pinterest is VERY HEAVILY LEVERAGING "fresh" content as of last month. Fresh content is defined as NEW images. So yes you can still have multiple Pinsof the same project but they need to be different images. Changing the crop size only works when you REALLY zoom in on a specific detail (so the zoomed image is not immediately recognizable as having come from the other image). They typical right tilt, left tilt, head on that I see so many demos do may not be enough (I am currently testing this with a couple of sandbox sites).

Google "Pinterest best practices" and change the time under tools to "last month". Also check out the Pinterest blog and the Tailwind blog for TONS of good information. And ping me if you need more!
