1. Profile of Pinterest

This is the most important thing. You can not use this platform properly unless you create a profile on Pinterest and provide complete details about yourself and your interests. This helps the AI to recommend you the best things and make your user experience smooth. You can create a profile on Pinterest using your email, Google, or Facebook account and it takes less than 5 minutes. You can do it easily by clicking next. It’s easier than creating a Facebook account.

How To Get Profile Link

I have seen a lot of people asking how to get a Pinterest profile link. Even though it’s very simple, people face issues in doing this. Once you are logged in to your account, then click on the top right corner on your profile image or the first alphabet of your profile name. Once it’s open, you can copy its link and this is your Pinterest profile link! That’s it!!!

2. Boards on Pinterest

You must have seen a notice board in your school, college, or office. These boards on Pinterest work the same as they do. You can use them to save your favorite images in different categories or folders. If you have a profile like shown in the above image, then you can create boards and save pins in them according to the category that image belongs to.

Boards on Pinterest help a lot in creating a collection of similar images in one place. If you optimize your boards, then they can also rank in search engines and help you maximize your reach. You can save your and also others pins on your boards.

3. Pins on Pinterest

While using other social media platforms like Facebook, Instagram, and TikiTok, the content that we upload and share is known as posts, while if you are using Pinterest, then the images or videos you will share and save will be known as “Pins on Pinterest”. This was simplest example of pins but there are a few changes like while publishing any pin you have to give title, description, atl text, hashtags and external links.

If you use any other platform, then you don’t need to do all this, but here you have to. It helps a lot in optimizing your pins and getting traffic to your links, which can be very profitable for your business.

Why To Use It?

This platform has a huge active audience which you can use to grow your social media profiles, website traffic, brand awareness, online businesses, ecommerce stores, and you can also use this platform for affiliate marketing by using landing pages. If you actively publish content here, then you can grow your profile very easily because Pinterest likes fresh content.
