As a part of my new series on YouTube, ‘Pinterest for Beginners’, I will be publishing a video each week. Each week, we will cover a simple and easy tip that you can use in your Pinterest journey. Today’s tip is how you can upload a pin directly to Pinterest.

Watch the full video (it’s less than 5 minutes long) 🙂

Want just the steps? Check out the image below for that:

Here are some of the advantages of uploading a pin directly to the Pinterest platform:

  1. You don’t have to add multiple pins to your blog posts. This will ensure that your site loading time is not heavily impacted.
  2. You can use a different title as well as a different Pinterest description when you upload an image directly to the Pinterest platform.
  3. Although I use Tailwind, you can also schedule a pin via Pinterest. Note that option in the frame where I show you how to upload a pin (just below the tab labelled ‘Choose a board’. You can schedule up to 30 pins at a time and up to 2 weeks in advance.

This is an awesome tip Shailaja. All this while I had been adding pins to my blog and hiding them with a tag. They don’t show up when the page is loaded but they show up when Pinterest share button is clicked. But now I wonder about the page load speed. I will try this way next time.

You know, Shy, now I feel like a bigger idiot.
This is how I have been sharing pins since yesterday!!! After your message about why I need to keep pinning regularly, I sat up till late night and created new boards and new pins and shared those in Pinterest. Did it today, too!
But, am glad you shared this post because now I know what I am doing!

Much love!
