Three Things That Make a Great Pin on Pinterest

pinterest
Pinterest studied over 100,000 pins to see which ones were the most effective. They found that the best pins have three things in common.

Great pins are:

  • Helpful: People like to gain knowledge about a topic – make your pins informative. Click here for an example of a helpful pin.
  • Beautiful: We know that the cosmetic patient is very interested in beauty so this one is important! Big beautiful images attract the eye and entice a click! Click here for an example of a beautiful pin.
  • Tasteful: Don’t be constantly marketing to them, or have your pins appear spammy (we’ve all seen how this leads to a very quick click to “unfollow all”). Click here for an example of a tasteful pin that relates to what you do but doesn’t “sell”.
