Welcome to the continuation of my Pinterest Training. I was concentrating on this social network because I read many blog articles about how Pinterest brought them a traffic to the site.

Following all the tips, experimenting and applying my knowledge, Pinterest is currently my No1 traffic source for my site.

If you have not read (and applied) lessons from my past training:
Boost your site Traffic with Pinterest
https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/training/boost-your-site-tra...,
please go back to that training so that you can proceed further.

In this section, we will concentrate on designing your pins and how to stand out among millions of others.

Let's first see what we learned from past training and what you should apply before we move on:

1. You`re Created a Pinterest Account ( or you convert it to Business Account)
2. Claimed your website
3. You Researched the Pinterest and found keywords in your niche
4. Created your Pinterest name similar to your brand/site
5. Chose the same profile picture that you use on your blog and social media.
6. You have your profile bio with relevant keywords in it.
7. Followed minimum 20 people from your niche

Hi

I have added at least 1 pin to each of my blog posts as told in this training.

Can I add my affiliate link to an image in my post which can be placed as a pin by my visitors on their Pinterest Boards?

I tried this but when clicked on this pin in Pinterest it directs the visitor to the website of respective merchant I have affiliated with and not to my own website.

So is this fine or will I be violating any T& C’s of Pinterest if I do this?

Thanks

It much better to post affiliate links on your blog post, and put your link on pins. This way you will be increasing traffic to your own website.

Hi Jelena

As mentioned in the first part of the training, I have already created 3 pins for each of my website articles in my Pinterest Business Account. I have used my own images from my website articles but they are not visually appealing as they are non-vertical pins. However, they have quite a few Impressions, Saves and Link clicks on Pinterest so far.

Now, this training asks us to create new vertical pins using the template from Canva. So does it mean that I have to delete and replace all the previous non-vertical pins with the new vertical pins for all my website articles?

Am I getting this right?

If so then what happens to all of my Impressions, Clicks, and Saves on Pinterest for these old pins?

Thanks,

Nick

No NIck, there's no need to delete old pins. You can make new pins and add them to a site, or you can make new pins and add directly to Pinterest with a link to the site post you want.

Hope it helps.

Ok.

So how many new pins per blog post do I need to make?

And if I make and add the new pins then the old pins plus the new pins will increase the total number of my pins.

So in order to maintain the 80:20 ration of my pins and other's pins, do I need to add more number of other's pins?

Thanks

I suggest three pins per post. And yes, increase sharing other people pins.

First of all, Congratulations on your 2 years with WA, Jelena!

Also, Congratulations on the purchase of your home, and becoming debt free. Those are fantastic events that some people never achieve.

I'm a mortgage underwriter, so helping someone get into a home is a great feeling - especially when it was a challenging deal.

But becoming debt free is a HUGE accomplishment! Not many people ever do that.

I'm brand new to WA, so reading your post was extremely inspiring; especially when you are getting 80% of your traffic from Pinterest.

I . LOVE . PINTEREST!

I already have a bazillion personal pins and many boards. I even have over 700 personal followers. When I get my site completed, I will definitely be using Pinterest as a tool to drive traffic to my business(es).

And you just gave me an idea for possibly being able to convert a couple of the personal boards to business boards, since they are my passions, and I haven't decided on a niche yet.

Thanks so much for the tutorials!!!

Hello again, Jelena!
We have just completed your second tutorial and we are really excited to get started but of course, it is a learning curve for us.

We want to get everything right from the beginning. We do have a question for you regarding the "boards" that you recommend we set up.

Would it be correct to describe the "boards" as the equivalent of or similar to, the "categories" on our website? Are we understanding this correctly?

Yes, that`s correct. You can look at boards like categories on your site :).

Yes, love this tutorial. I admit that I read both of your Pinterest trainings through first without taking any action besides creating accounts. But I’ve poked around on Pinterest so most of this made sense. I know that this pinterest Training will all make sense when I do the actions. Thanks again!
