How to Design Click-Worthy Pins

Have you started your Pinterest account for your business in hopes of driving traffic to your site, but you feel like you aren’t getting recognized? Well, I’ve got some bad news for you that you might not like.

One of the reasons why people who start out on Pinterest are not creating the best pin designs. Creating eye-catching, quality pins is HUGE to Pinterest, especially since it is a search engine.

Don’t worry though, creating pins is something that takes time and can be hard to nail it. If it makes you feel any better, I had trouble with this too. Let me show you.

See the difference? I’m not going to sit here and tell you that these are the best, but I have definitely been improving! I also have seen SO MUCH MORE traction since updating all my pins and descriptions, which proved to me that those old, ugly pins were not going to do it for me.

So now you are probably wondering, how the heck do you do that?

Suggestions to create better pins

Your background image should be relevant to your brand or as close as what to your post is about.

Focus on what kind of font you are using and how it might portray to someone else. If it is too hard to read, then people will scroll right past.

Having big text is super helpful. The bigger the text, the easier it reads (with the right font of course).

Don’t skimp too much on your headline! Make sure it hits the right point and what your blog will be about. If you have a how-to or steps kind of post, make sure to use graphic numbers. (I’m starting that in my future posts/replicated pins).

Need help creating pins?

If you need help creating pins, I can definitely help with that. It is not part of my normal services and charge on how many pins wanted. Canva is required for me to create them, but once they are created they are all yours.
