5 Tips To Create Pinterest Pins

Pinterest is an excellent social media tool for blog marketing. You can create pin boards that are relevant to niche audiences and pin images to those pin boards for each blog post that you publish. Each pin creates a new entry point to your blog, which means more potential traffic to your blog.

The more you follow the tips to use Pinterest for blog promotion, the more successful you’ll be at driving traffic to your blog from Pinterest, but before you start pinning, consider your goals for your blog and for each blog post.

  1. What value does the pin and blog post provide to your target audience?
  2. Is the pin an appropriate representation of your blog’s brand?
  3. Will this pin attract the right audience to your blog?
  4. Will they be delighted or disappointed in the content they find on your blog after clicking on your pin?

In simplest terms, your pins should be visually appealing, include a useful description, and be relevant to your audience.

Follow the tips below to create awesome pin images to promote your blog on Pinterest.

  1. Colour

Use bold colors that draw the eye and capture people’s attention. Images with multiple colors typically perform better on Pinterest than black and white images, as do images with high saturation.

Furthermore, choose images that are light, not dark. Use an image editing tool to crop, resize, and edit your images before you publish them in your blog posts and pin them to Pinterest.

  1. Orientation

Images with a portrait orientation perform best on Pinterest. Try to use a 2:3 aspect ratio. Remember that the Pinterest feed is vertical, so large horizontal images appear very tiny. However, vertical photos shouldn’t be too long, or they can get cut off in the Pinterest feed (requiring people to scroll to see your complete image, which could damage your click-through rate and shares). Pinterest recommends that images never exceed a ratio of 1:3.5.

  1. Quality

Never pin low-quality images. A blurry image won’t get clicked or shared, and it could even damage trust in your brand. After all, if you pin harmful content, why should anyone think that you publish anything but lousy content on your blog, too?

Instead, always ensure you pin images with an adequate resolution for desktop and mobile viewing. Furthermore, pay attention to cropping and provide an essential part of each image you pin that is easy to see.

As you learned in #2 above, the Pinterest feed is vertical, and some images can appear very tiny. Make sure people can see enough of your image in their Pinterest feeds to be able to determine whether or not it’s relevant to them. If they can’t tell what the image is, they won’t click on it or share it.

  1. Text

Add a text overlay to the images you pin whenever you can. A compelling title, message, or call-to-action that appears with an image gives context that can increase click-throughs and shares wherever people see it. However, make sure the text doesn’t dominate or clutter the image.

  1. Branding

You should include your logo, URL, and a copyright notice on images you own, but make sure branding is kept to a minimum. An overly large logo or brand identity element can detract from the image and makes your useful pins look like nothing more than advertisements.

Looking for a Wordpress transfer from site A to site B, I found back Andrei from Wesites Seller on Google.He was very proactive in his approach, came with hundreds of ideas and lifetime experiences from other migrations. He knows the wordpress, the hosting and php database as the back of his pocket.And we worked out this migration very smooth. Together we solved it, and myself and my business are very pleased with his approach.100% recommendation & kudo's from out of Belgium!

Websites Seller built my resume site. Deliverables were quickly completed, and I was asked for my feedback at each stage of development. All feedback I gave was implemented in a short time.Another great thing is that he comes with smart solutions, regarding stuff which I didn't initially think of (site security, Google site speed optimization and so on). Basically, he was great, staying in touch, keeping me updated and paid attention to what was most important for my site.Overall, I am very happy with the work done. I highly recommend this developer!
