Are you starting to promote your artwork on Pinterest? In this article, I will share with you how easy it is to create a Pinterest board.
Pinterest is an exciting medium for artists to build a brand presence. It is unlike any other social media platforms. Pinterest specializes in beautiful images, which is the perfect medium for you.
How To Create a Pinterest Board
Login to your Pinterest account.
Click Create a Board
Fill out the information in the drop-down box:
- Name of the board. Be creative and precise with the board name. You want to intrigue people to view your board, and you want to make it clear so they will know exactly the content that they will be viewing.
- Description of the board. Write a detailed description of the content that will be on your board. This information will make it easier for people to find your content.
- Choose a category. This will help people find your boards based on what they are searching.
Congratulations you have just created your first Pinterest board.
Pinterest Board Basics
Pinterest boards are a great way for you to keep your pins organized. Think of a board like an office file.
You will be able to pin interesting articles that you like as well as content from your blog and website.
The boards will make it easy for you and the people that land on your profile page to find content that is interesting.
Pinterest Board Tips
Have the same boards (categories) that you have on your website and artist blog.
Create specific boards. Instead of having a board that says artwork, use different boards that explain the subject and the size. For example, Horse Oil Paintings 24 x 36. The more specific that you can be the better the experience will be for the people landing on your boards.
Pinterest is just like all other social media platforms. The more work you put into it, the better your results will be.
Study what other pinners are doing and learn from them. The more that you can learn about Pinterest, the more people that you will be able to reach.
