In order to get the best from Pinterest, you need to send out pins that people will want to repin. The pin that people would want to repin, the perfect pin, has several characteristics. However, when all of these characteristics are put into 1 pin, you will see more repins. These are the three characteristics of a perfect pin.
- Pin a picture that grabs our attention. Small pictures get little attention while big pictures get a lot of attention. In addition, the color yellow grabs our attention quicker than any other color.
- The picture needs to be cool or have a powerful message. Now that you have our attention, we need a reason to repin your pin. This is when either being cool or motivational will result in more repins. 3D printing is cool because it is an innovation. That’s why most of my repinned pins are 3D printed creations. Motivation comes in the forms of inspirational “go get ‘em” quotes.
- Have a description that explains your picture. In 1-2 sentences, briefly describe the picture you pinned. Tell people what the picture is even if the picture is of something that we all know. If you pin a picture of a rabbit, be sure to tell us that it is a rabbit. We know what rabbits look like, but on Pinterest, you need to tell them what your picture is.
The next time you send out a pin on Pinterest, be sure that you are sending out the perfect pin. These kinds of pins get repinned more often than the average pin. Some perfect pins even go viral.
