Have you ever thought about how many ways are there to upload a pin to Pinterest?

And another question – Do you know that you can save time uploading pins?

One important step when using Pinterest for business is to create and upload a pin so that you can promote your content, blog post, product or service.

Here are several ways to upload your pin to Pinterest.

There are 6 ways you can upload a pin. #5 and #6 are time-saving, so read on to find out which ones are best for you.

Let’s start.

How to upload a pin to Pinterest  

1. From your website/blog

To upload a pin this way, you will first need to have a pin-it button over your images installed in WordPress. Another tool is the Chrome extension pin-it button

It is a very useful tool that will make it easy for you to add pins from your blog to Pinterest. In just a few clicks you will be able to save the pin to your Pinterest board.

When you create a pin and add it to your blog post (whether visible or hidden), all you have to do is click the pin-it button on your blog image and save it to one of your Pinterest boards. 

And when you click the Chrome extension, there will be all your pinnable blog images (visible and hidden images) that you can save to your board. Choose the one you want and select the board you want to save it on.

It is that simple. 

TIP: Be sure to add a data-pin-description and alt text to each pinnable image in WordPress. 

2. On Pinterest – upload a pin directly to Pinterest. 

Just click on a plus signCreate Pin
