In this tutorial I am going to show you how to create a pin for Pinterest using the free version of Canva. The two images that I have shared below, I created them using the formular that I am shoiwing you in the video.

Remember to use dimensions of 600x900 because thats what Pinterest recommends and also use #tags when adding your pin to Your Pinterest because the #tags help your pin to rank well within Pinterest.

Always use keywords that are related to your pin subject as #tags, Pinterest is a search engine so keywords are very important even when describing your pin, just be creative on how you add your keywords but do not use too many kewords 2 or 3 are fine.

Also, some colors do very well on Pinterest, Think Pink, Blue, Yellow, Orange and Green when you are creating your pins because, they seem to perform very well. So below are the images I created for this tutorial.

I hope you will find this helpful, please tell me what you think on the the comments

Thank you so much

Thank you so much for this tutorial, Rose. That was just what I needed. I have just started using Canva, and I´m also just starting with Pinterest to promote my website. Now I know how to use Canva for that, and your training was also helpful for how to use Pinterest.

Great tutorial Rose! Not only did I learn how to create the right size Pin, I also learned how to use the editing functions of Canva.

You discussed hashtags that I found helpful. Where do you place these hashtags in the graphics or Pin? I haven’t used hashtags in Pinterest so I was at a loss there.

Other than my shortcoming, I thought you made a wonderful video.

Cheers.

Thank you so much Edwin, the hashtags you are going to use them in Pinterest, on the description of your pin. For example, you are going to put the title of your pin, in this case, 5 recipes for weight loss, and then below that, you are going to be asked to describe what your pin is about.

So you are going to say, find 5 recipes for weight loss that are easy to make and very tasty#weightlossrecipes#looseweighteasy#easyandquicklowfatrecipes#weightlosstips

Of course, these are just examples that I am giving here. You have to be more detailed when you are describing your pin and you have to use the related keywords.

You answered my question Rose. Thanks much. I created a Pinterest account months ago but left it dormant as it wasn’t intuitive to use. Like this point about pin size. I’ll get there someday. If you’re an expert on Pinterest maybe you could make a video about that sometime.

Thanks once again.

I have been studying Pinterest For a while and I have actually used it for about 4 years although I was not using it for business until last year.
I do plan to create more videos about Pinterest because it is my favorite social media site.
