Pinterest is like a well-organised, visual pinboard; packed with ideas, inspiration, and just a few pictures of cute cats. In a sea of Pinterest images, it can be hard to stand out, but we’re here to help you learn how use templates to create a pin on Pinterest that drives results.
Pinterest templates are a great way to keep your content consistent, professional and of a high quality. Whether you use them because you’re not quite sure how to make Pinterest pins look great on your own, or because they’re a handy time-saver, it doesn’t matter.
How to Use Pinterest
The best way to use Pinterest to promote your business is to think of it as a great way to share your interests with your audience. Community is a big part of that, and you’ll generally enjoy greater success if you specialise in something and then post inspirational content aimed at that particular audience. For example, if you’re a food blogger, you might post things like recipes, pictures of scrumptious-looking food, and your own top tips.
Pinterest Content Tips
- Stay on brand and keep your content relevant.
- Make sure your keywords are relevant and specific, including the name of your image file.
- Add a description and don’t be afraid to inject some personality.
- Keep text easy to read and don’t clutter your post.
- Include a call to action. Whether you want people to actually buy a product or engage with your post in a different way, make sure it’s clear and compelling.
