branding your pinterest boards

A while back I wrote a blog post on Pinterest.  What Pinterest is all about and how it can be a successful marketing tool.


Since my last post, this website has evolved quite a bit, and I want to share one of my favorite tips with you.  All of your pins are categorized by boards.  These can be set up for any topic of interest.  I have board topics including: graphic design, invitations, quotes, food, home decor and one specific for my brand colors… red and teal.

I have also created a board for Dry Ink Designs.  I use this board to pin any images that are used here on the blog.  This is great for driving traffic back to my blog!  Here is a snapshot of my Dry Ink board page where you may see a few familiar images.


Ok – here is where the tip comes in.  Once your boards are created, Pinterest allows you change the cover images, giving you complete control of what your board page looks like. This is also the “home page” of your individual Pinterest page, so if you are doing this for a company or business, I would definitely suggest updating it.  On my page, I simply changed all of my board cover images to my brand colors, but do feel it makes a great impact when you come to my page – everything is red and teal!


This is really simple to do, just hover over the board image and “Edit Board Cover” will pop up.


After clicking on “Edit Board Cover” a pop up window comes up that allows you to scroll through your images, choose the one you want to use and drag/position the image to only show the part of the image that works best for you!


When you are doing this, don’t forget to edit your boards.  Click on a specific board and then click on “Edit Board”.


On that page you can edit the title and description, determine the category, add others who can pin to this board, or delete the board completely.

You can get as creative as you like with your boards, changing the images and board names.  Have fun with your Pinterest – let your creativity show.

You can see my full Pinterest page here.  You can see another Pinterest page I help moderate here.   This page is for Sunny Slide Up – a group project I work on with 4 fabulous friends!

In closing, I will share a quote with you that one of my Sunny Slide Up friends, Steph, shared with me. – Thanks Steph!
