How to get started on Pinterest

13 Nov

Pinterest is a relatively new Web tool that started in 2010, to become a Top social media platform today.

Pinterest is a virtual Pin-Board, where you get to pin images/videos/audio from around the web to create as many mood-boards as you want: it also serve as a Bookmark platform, since you can access the original link you ‘pinned’ from by clicking on it.

So How to get started on Pinterest?

Whatever browser you are using, first thing you need to do (after creating an account, obviously) is download the “Pin it” Button, as per the below snapshot/indications: Hover over About/Click “Pin it Button”/Make sure your Bookmarks bar is showing/Drag and drop the button to the bookmarks bar/ That’s it!

Easy Breezy

If that wasn’t informative enough, watch those video tutorials:

For Safari

For Google Chrome:

For Mozilla Firefox:

For Internet Explorer:

Really? Who uses that anymore?

So now you are ready to pin: While viewing your favourite websites, blogs, tumblrs, all you have to do is click the Pin it Magical button, and it will transform all the data in the website to become “Pinnable”!

Now it’s up to you to chose the pins that represent you/your image/your business the MOST.

You can also “Repin” things other people are pinning, and start following people who have similar tastes and interests. It’s a very generous tool, because it encourages people to share the best of their inspirations with other people without any constrictions and to be honest about their inspirations; a haven for copycats!

I know so many of those bitches

NEW FEATURE: You can now have a SECRET BOARD. YES! For your more adult pins, or if you’re in the closet and want to extend your stay, or if you’re an idea stealer but want to take all the credit then go ahead and create a secret board, where no one can see your pins.

On your marks.

READY?

Start Pinning!
