About This Class

If you’ve been hearing how amazing Pinterest is but haven’t figured out how to use it - this course is for you! Pinterest is the number two traffic referral to websites. Is traffic coming to your projects? We’re going to learn the elements of a great Pinterest pin and see how it’s done.

In this class, you’ll learn how to create a Pinterest graphic, what size to use, and the optimal way to post your graphics on Pinterest on desktop and mobile.

By the end of this course, you’ll know how to create a Pinterest graphic for your brand that will help more people find your content online. And you’ll know all of the essential elements that each pin needs to make it successful on Pinterest.

For this course, I've used Adobe Spark Post for desktop and iOS. Both are free. And Pinterest on desktop and iOS.

If you want more information about how to use Pinterest, please check out my other Skillshare course: Pinterest Marketing 101 for Creative Entrepreneurs.
