Ready to get the ball rolling with your Squarespace blog and Pinterest? One of the quickest and easiest ways to do this is to enable a Pin It Button on your website images. You can do this for your individual images, galleries and products!
Follow the quick steps below to add a Pin It button to your Squarespace website:
- Go to the 'Home' Menu
- Click 'Settings'
- Click 'Marketing'
- Click 'Pin It Buttons'
From here, you can select which content you would like to have your Pin It buttons featured on. For Home Sweet Hyatt Studios, I have it on everything! You can also style the button in various ways, then click 'Save' to complete.
See?! Pretty easy stuff! The great thing about this is that Squarespace and Pinterest have an incredible partnership that automatically saves your pins to rich pins. This means that your pins will have more information, like your website name, always below the pin to show where the pin came from. Read more about rich pins here and how they can help your business!
Why take all these steps in the Pinterest direction? It can feel very overwhelming, especially with all the other social media platforms out there. However, this is a really unique tool that can allow your images and products to 'go viral' and increase your website traffic just by you pinning a few pins of your work. In fact, I've read a few Facebook Group threads lately where creative business owners (event planners, coaches, designers, etc.) have said that upwards of 60, 70, and 80% of their website traffic was JUST from Pinterest!
