It is the fifth day in a series about how to reach and engage your audience on Pinterest.
So far, we’ve talked about the workflow you should consider from getting to know your audience to creating great content. And now we just have to put everything together and create a Pinterest strategy to help you reach your ideal audience.
Until now, we have used Pinterest to search for keywords, ideas, to find out more about your audience. And all you have to do is put everything together and invest your time on Pinterest.
If you haven’t already, create a Pinterest business account. It’s a great way to promote your business and get access to analytics.

And now that you have a Pinterest business profile, your blog post written, an attractive headline and a freebie created, it’s time to strategically put it all together.
What will be your next steps?
- First, you want to create a great pin for your blog post. You can use Canva for that. It is free and you can easily design your own pin graphics there. You don’t have to be a graphic designer. 🙂
Upload images you want to use, choose fonts and colors you like, make a design that appeals to your brand. Learn more about pin creation here.
- Then pick one headline you wrote the other day. Make sure it is short, that it contains a keyword as well as a power word. Add it to your pin.
Keywords and power words will attract your ideal audience the most, so make sure you use them properly.
Depending on the colors of the image, choose font colors, emphasize an important word in a different color or font style. And here I recommend you read more about the different font pairings to get an idea of the font combinations.
Add your URL or logo to your pin.
- Create a description of your pin. Be sure to use the keywords you were searching for when creating your headlines. So write down 2 to 3 keywords and make sentences using them. Don’t do keyword stuffing.
Look for a few hashtags.
- If you have some freebie to offer, show it on your pin. You can write something like: “download now”, “free download”, or place a mockup of a freebie on your pin. This is something that will attract your ideal audience. If they can get something from you that will help them solve the problem or something they can use to improve their business, life, they will click on your pin.
- And now, upload a pin to Pinterest. Here is a detailed guide on how to do that. You will be amazed at how many different ways you can upload a pin to Pinterest. 🙂
Whether you want to pin manually or using a scheduler, you want to follow some guidelines. So here are some quick tips:
- Create at least 3 pins per blog post
- Upload pins to your blog post (whether they are visible or hidden)
- Pin them to the most relevant board first
- Do not pin the same pin over and over again
- Do not pin the same URL back to back
- Use group boards to expand your reach
- Keep track of the progress of your pins.
