Pinterest Tutorials | How To Make a Pin For Pinterest Using Canva (The Right Way)

Pinterest is a wonderful platform to use if you are a blogger. If you do things in the right way and pin often and consistently it can culminate into an avalanche of traffic over time.  Most blog owners I know don’t use Pinterest in the right way and think the traffic generated is not buyer traffic or targeted traffic. This assumption is very wrong. Most likely these same people are not being consistent with their Pinterest strategy or worse have no Pinterest strategy whatsoever.

If you have landed on my blog looking for Pinterest Tutorial or in particular how to make a pin for Pinterest using Canva then great. I have a full video tutorial waiting for you below.

I will be doing lots of these tutorials going forward and will focus on teaching different Pinterest tasks in each video tutorial.

Creating a Pin for Pinterest using Canva is a really simple process once you get used to the Canva controls. If you have never used canva before then I’m sure you will find my tutorial really helpful.

I have been a long time canva pro user and actually prefer it to using photoshop purely for its ease of use.  Sure photoshop is more in-depth and has a million different functions compared to Canva but for things like creating Pinterest Pins, Instagram photos, etc I always use canva.

In my tutorial, I show how to make Pins and make them fast and in bulk. Pinning to Pinterest is not as simple as sticking one or two pins on there per week and hoping for a slam dunk of making sales and getting traffic.

You can get ultra streamlined if you make a Pinterest pinning strategy and also using an automated tool to post multiple times per day at the best possible times for you to get the most amount of views on your pins.

More views = more exposure = more clicks to your website which in turn will mean sales if you have a good converting offer and content on the page you are sending your Pinterest visitors to.

Follow my Pinterest Pin Tutorial above and you will be starting off on the best possible footing.

Pinterest Pinning Strategy

Most of the fellow bloggers I have networked with over the past few years do not utilize Pinterest in the way it should be utilized, they would rather focus on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter, they will post to Pinterest also but it’s dome half-hearted and with little to no consistency or strategy.

If you see my tutorial about 1 minute in I show you just how powerful consistent pinning, following a set strategy can be. One of my Pinterest Accounts gets up to 120,000 views per month. Yes, you read right. 120,000 sets of eyeballs seeing my pins on Pinterest. This translates into a lot of traffic for my websites and we make consistent sales using this traffic.

I want to teach this strategy which I will do via short Pinterest tutorials over the coming weeks and months so make sure you bookmark this website and come back to this Pinterest Tutorials section regularly.
