Resources & Community

You need a place to learn and a place to ask questions. Join my Facebook group if you haven’t done so already. We’re only talking Pinterest and all newbie questions are welcome.

In order to market well on Pinterest you’ll need a few basic elements in place:

Business Account — super easy to convert any personal account to business. Then you’ll get access to analytics to find out if your efforts are working.

Rich Pins — This helps your pins look legitimate and pulls the correct data from your site. Here’s a complete guide to add them to all blogging platforms.

Quality Pinterest Images — the basic size is 600×900 or 600×1260. Clear photos, bright colors and simple text overlay win every time. Use tools like Canva, PicMonkey, and Photoshop to create images with text overlay.

Keywords — If you don’t have keywords in your pin descriptions, then your pins can’t be found by those searching on Pinterest. Keywords help searchers find your content. Here’s our complete guide to keywording on Pinterest.

Scheduling Tools
