This is way easy to do, simply go into a board on Pinterest and click on the plus button on the left that says “Save a Pin”.

Then you will get two options coming up, on the left is save from the web and the right is from your device. Choose from your device.

Search for your image on your device and add it. Then write in a description and include some hashtags.

Then choose which board you want to pin it to. Once it has been pinned go to edit that image and add in the URL for the image.

You can pin any image you like even if it is not showing on your website so you can get really creative and make some cool ads, images and infographics for your posts.

Remember that you can now also pin affiliate links, so you can add your affiliate link in here instead of your own URL’s.

I hope you enjoyed this training, if you did please give it a thumbs up!

Thanks for this.. What is the reason to add the #'s ? I know they use them on twitter, and I am not sure how or why to use them there .. possible training?

Hashtags are ways for people to search for your content :) So Hashtag your keywords. It really is as simple as that!

I am sure Jay did some awesome training on hashtags, maybe check that out. Username Magistudios in case you don't know him, you have to check out his training.
