In order to make the most out of Pinterest and get a good return on your invested time, it’s important to get your pinning right. I doubt there is anyone left out there who doesn’t know what Pinterest is. After all, it had an insane ride to the very top and has become one of the most popular social networking services on the Internet. If you want to grow your following, it’s important that you get your Pinterest images pinned in the very most optimized format.
That might sound like a lot of work, but let me assure you, it isn’t. It’s just a precaution to make sure that your Pinterest images don’t have a letter box effect on them. A letter box effect is when your images are too small for the container. The result is an image that looks too small which in turn won’t appeal to people, or rather it won’t appeal to people who are used to Pinterest images that fill up the entire placeholder. It’s not rocket science, and all you need to remember is to make sure your images are never more than three times taller than they are wide.
In order for you to come across as a Pinterest professional, I found an infographic that might come to your aid. It’s called Quick Guide To Pinterest Images (exactly, just like the title of this article), and it is packed with small and effective tips. It goes into pretty much every aspect of this social networking site, and how you can optimize all of your Pinterest images. It’s quite straight forward, and you don’t have to be a Photoshop master or a hacker in order to implement any of these tips.
If you just make sure you follow these basic suggestions, you can be sure you will grow your following quite fast. Knowing how to pin your Pinterest images correctly has an appealing effect on your following, which in turn will make them repin and share your Pinterest images over and over again. This infographic is presented by Josh Davis (@JoshD) and is definitely a useful quick guide. It’s worth reading through and remembering.
