Help with pinterest

Last Update: March 19, 2014
HI all! So I am still slowly learning....so bear with me. I have never created my own Pin for Pinterest. I wanted to put my affiliate link and a banner in a pin and post it. I tried but I dont' think it worked since when i clicked on the banner in the pin it just brought me back to the banner page her at WA. any tips? Or should I just do my own Pic for a Pin and then in the comments have my affiliate link?

Do a search for Wealthy Affiliate Banner Images on google images and then pin something you find there

Hey Wayne,

That can work too, but she will still need to edit it after posting so that she can put the URL in the source, unless I am not aware of a way to add the URL during the initial pinning.

Best Regards,
Jim

Hey Nicole,

It's a bit of a work around but it can be done. On your Pinterest screen you should see a big + button that turns red when you hover your mouse over it. When you click that, it will give you the following choices:
Upload a Pin
Add From a Website
Create a Board

Choose Upload a pin. Then it will ask you for the location of the graphic. Locate the banner that you want to include and use that. Now, at this point there won't be any method of putting your URL. But you'll get to that after you pin. Put in a description and then go ahead and pin it.

Here is the work around. Find the new pin and when you hover over it you should see the usual Like and Pin buttons but there will be another icon which is a pen icon. This is where you can edit the pin. At this point it will include a Source area to put your link.

Let me know if this makes sense.
Best Regards,
Jim
