I was recently taught how to do something neat with Pinterest pins. If you're a Pinterest expert, you probably already know this. But if you're a Pinterest newbie, I think you'll find this useful.
You can curate people's pins and embed them into your blog.
Why would you want to do this?
- It gives you more content ideas.
- It jazzes up your site with more images.
- It can help grow your Pinterest account.
Because you're basically using other people's content (but adding your own spin to it), you can easily put together high-quality blog posts in no time at all.
(OK, it still takes a *little* time, let's be real.)
This is a win-win because you get content ideas, and the pinners get more eyeballs on THEIR content.
This video will walk you through exactly how to embed pins into your blog posts. This is for the Classic editor in Wordpress. As soon as I learn how the heck how to use Gutenberg, I'll do a training for that too!
For now, let me know if you have any questions.
P.S. You'll need to add this code before the </BODY>.
<script async defer src="//assets.pinterest.com/js/pinit.js"></script>
You can find that code here: https://developers.pinterest.com/tools/widget-builder/?type=pin
