Creating pins

  • You want long vertical images like

    this
  • Images with text do better than images without text
  • Use high-quality photos – either yours or

    free stock photos
  • Only brand it a

    little

    – a tiny logo is great, a big text block claiming copyright isn’t

  • Utilize padding and white space,

  • The meta description of your image matters for SEO purposes,

  1. Keywords that your audience is searching for
  2. Several sentences to stand out, entice, and be found more easily in the search
  3. A call to action, such “click through to read the full post!”

What should you pin?

I’ve done a lot of testing and trial and error to see what works and what doesn’t. I’ve experimented with colors, pin orientation, featured images, and language so we can get the nitty gritty of what Pinterest advice we should actually be listening to.

Pinterest upkeep


  1. Schedule time every week to pin to your boards.

    You can spend 15 or 20 minutes adding new posts onto your boards to keep things interesting.

  2. Pin every (good!) article you read.

    Every time I read a great blog post (or write one myself) I’ll pin it to relevant Pinterest boards. It only takes a few extra seconds and doesn’t feel like I’m going out of my way.

  3. Open your boards up to contributors.

    I’ll go into detail a bit later in the post – but group boards are a great way to get your Pinterest running itself.

  4. Hire a Pinterest manager.

    This isn’t a thrifty option, but if you truly want your Pinterest account to run itself, this one is for you. You can check VA groups on Pinterest, but be warned that this can get pricey.

  5. …or use a combination of a few of these.

    Personally, I use tactics 1 through 3 on my own Pinterest account, and I’ve found that it works like a dream.

A quick note about the reviews on this site: I am an affiliate for every product I review. The vendors of these products give me them without charge in order for me to test them. However all my reviews are done as honestly as possible and I make no promises to the vendor prior to writing my review. Should you click a link on this site that takes you to a paid product this link will be an affiliate link and I will be paid a percentage of the sales price should you decide to purchase that product.
