If you’ve read our what and why Pinterest blog, we hope we’ve inspired you to get pinning! To make things super simple, we’ve put together a little how-to guide to help get you started.
First things first, you’ll need to go to pinterest.com, click the signup option and follow the instructions. You can either enter your details manually or sign up using Facebook or Google.
At this point, your profile will now have been created and you’ll be asked to answer a few simple questions. This is so Pinterest can get an idea about you and your interests!
Pins will now be automatically populated by Pinterest based on the interests you selected. Now you’ll be able to pin away! If you see something you like, select the photo and save it. Don’t worry you aren’t limited to the categories you selected. If you are looking for something in particular you can use the search bar. Pinterest will then populate more pins daily based on your recent activity and searches.
Now you’ve got the basics down, we can go into a little more detail about what you can really do with Pinterest. On your profile, you’ll be able to create boards, you can name them whatever you fancy, there are no rules! When saving your pins, you’ll be able to select which board to send them too and you’ll then start to build up a fantastic mood board!
If you like to be super organised you can even add sub-sections, in the same way, you created the mainboard. Want to share your inspiration with friends or family? Click the + button at the top and Pinterest will allow you to collaborate with others.
If you really love someone’s Pinterest page, New City Heating for example 😉 you’ll be able to follow them and keep up to date with their latest posts. Likewise, if anyone in the pinning realm loves your page, they’ll be able to follow you.
Did you know you can even chat with your friends? Enter their name or email address and then add your message, it doesn’t have to be pin related – you can have a gossip whilst scrolling, it’s great!
We know how easy it is to stumble across an idea that might not work for you, but would work perfectly for a friend, that’s why the option to share a pin is brilliant. If they haven’t got Pinterest, that’s okay; you can send the pin via WhatsApp, Facebook, Twitter, you could even email them…
Pinterest is a growing platform and it’s clear to see why! At New City Heating, we’re excited about building our page and inspiring our customers when it comes to bathroom design.
We hope this blog’s been helpful!
