Make the Most of Your Pinterest Images​

Make the most of your Pinterest Images to engage more traffic, pins and re-pins! Pinterest is a powerful e-commerce network that is continually gaining more and more audience that is looking for new, cool, refreshing content.  Capture pinners’ attention with these tips!

  • The design in your Pinterest Images is important, specifically “colors” play an important role in how often you get re-pinned. Images using several, vibrant colors are re-pinned way more than images with only one dominant color.
  • Using relevant labels and descriptions is also a major strategy to help boost those re-pins, however don’t over do it, be brief. Excessive labels don’t look pretty.
  • Brand your images tastefully, you can add an author's tag or your own logo to those images you want your audience to quickly recognize as yours.
  • Remember to post at peek times!

Tip: Have you ever seen a piece of clothing on Pinterest, but you are not sure where you can buy it? As a business, this happens when you post from your computer instead of posting from your website. When you share directly from your website, a link is created so that customers can track the product back to you!

Pinterest Image Sizes

Pinterest recommends using a 2:3 size in whatever high-quality size you want to use. Placeit uses 736 x 1128px in its Pinterest Template. Taller images are more likely to be re-pinned rather than wider images, so, we always use default vertical image.
