How to Add a Pinterest Widget to Your WordPress Website

Are you using Pinterest? I love Pinterest, but it is a dangerous place to be.  I think it is even more dangerous than Facebook.  I just popped back over there for a minute to look at something and off I go down a trail of amazing holiday destinations or off on a food frenzy.

I always say that if you aren't already on a platform don't jump on board just for the sake of it.  Pinterest is a great place but it is also another thing to manage in your business.  If you are on there though, it would be great to connect. You can also, of course, connect with me through the widget in my sidebar.

In this video I show you how to add a Pinterest Widget to the sidebar of your site.  We look at creating a widget for your entire account or for just one board.

If you are on Pinterest leave your link below.  I would love to pop over and visit you!

How to Add a Video to a Pinterest Board

Pinterest is a great source of traffic for both your blog and your YouTube channel. This means it is a great place to add your content for more people to see it.

There are 2 ways to have people watch one of your videos from Pinterest:

1. To have embedded the video into your blog and then to share your blog post image on a Pinterest Board

2. To have the video play directly in Pinterest.  In this video I show you how to do that. People can actually watch the video in Pinterest without having to leave.  The only thing to note when doing it this way is that the link will take people to your YouTube channel not to your blog.  So, if the main aim is to get people to your blog you will want to use the first option I mentioned.

Are you sharing your videos on Pinterest?  I will love to hear your results.  Leave them in the comments below.
