Before You Begin

Watch this funny live video - well, at least I think it's funny! 😉 It teaches you an important lesson about getting started on Pinterest.

Success on Pinterest starts by setting up strong foundations. Follow these easy steps to get started on the right foot!
 

Step #1: Set up a business account

Having a business account on Pinterest is a MUST if you want to succeed. Not only it is free, but it will also enable several useful features and provide you with analytics. 

You’ll be able to track the number of people that see your content every day, as well as the number of people that actually click to your site. Analytics are a must to help you track your progress and tweak your strategies as needed. 

A marketing strategy without analytics is like throwing darts in the dark. So do yourself a favor, and set up a free Pinterest business account. It’s the first step in establishing strong foundations for your success on Pinterest.

You can either convert your existing personal account to business or create a new business one. 

 

Get your website verified

This will let Pinterest know that you own your website. It’s not a complicated process and it needs to be done if you want to be successful on Pinterest.  I give you exactly how to do this in my guide you can download for free.

 

Activate rich pins

This will add your website information to your pins, such as your website name, blog post or product headline and a description. It'll help you rank in the Pinterest search engine. 

Pinterest users do 2 Billion searches every month. Make sure it’s easy for them to find you.

Pinterest users make 2 Billion searches every single month. Yep, you read that right… 2 billion searches a month! 

So do yourself a favor and activate rich pins so Pinterest users can find your content.

 

Step #3: Create your profile

Add a profile picture that stands out. Create a keyword-rich profile name and description.

On my Pinterest profile, I’ve added a picture of myself that stands out and is aligned with my brand colors. I’ve also added keywords that I want to rank for in my profile name as well as my profile description.

Step #4: Create boards

Create 10-15 on-brand boards with keyword-rich descriptions.

Let me give you an example of what a "keyword-rich description" is.

Let’s use an example of someone that provides web design services. We'll search in Pinterest for “web design”. The keywords that appear in the guided search words (located just below the search bar) are words that rank the most for web design.

Simply use some of those keywords when crafting your board descriptions. It will help them rank better in search over time.

Step #4: Create irresistible Pinterest graphics

Pinterest is a visual search platform, and as such, creating visually attractive graphics are a must to drive traffic to your site.
