Pinterest For Artists: How To, Tips, Questions And Answers

Pinterest has become one of the most important traffic sources for many bloggers, websites, and shops.

How about Artists? Well, it seems to work great for quite some photographers and painters.

Others don’t like or even hate Pinterest. This is fine, but please let me make this clear: this discussion is not for you, I’m sorry. You are free to think that Pinterest does not work or is bad, but this discussion is for Artists that want to learn more about this visual search engine. Please be positive. Pinterest does have glitches and problems, but we will tackle them in a constructive way. Thank you.

So what is this thread all about?

I want to help fellow artists to understand how Pinterest works.
You can ask your Pinterest questions, I will try to answer them.
It will be a place for useful tips, tricks, and resources.
It will be a “how to use Pinterest” thread, not a “how to sell with Pinterest” thread

Let’s get started!

What is Pinterest and how does it work?

Pinterest is a) a visual search and discovery engine and b) a catalog of ideas. People use Pinterest to get inspired and to take action.

Pinterest is no social network (it has some social components, though). Some people state that Pinterest is “the social network for introverts.” I read a great quote some time ago, it goes like this: “Pinterest is for yourself, not for your selfies.”

Pinterest consists of Pins, which are organized in Boards. Every Pinner creates its own boards of choice. If someone likes a Pin, she can repin (share) it into one of her boards. This means one Pin can be in hundreds or thousands of boards.

Every Pin can (and should) have a link that leads to a website (for example, to one of your Prints or Products on FAA or even better on your Pixels Artist Website).

Pinterest is an excellent place for evergreen content. The half-life of a Pin (the time in which it earns half of the overall engagement, like clicks and view) is 3.5 months -- about 1,600 times longer than a Facebook post. Source: Small Business Trends. A Pin can generate traffic for years and years.

As I already wrote above: I don’t want to become this a sales related discussion. If you want to know why I think that Pinterest is such a great place for artists feel free to read a blog post about this topic here: https://www.elke.com/pinterest-why-every-artist-should-use-it-to-sell-art If you want to discuss the stats I published in the blogpost or anything sales related please use my blog for this (not this thread), thank you!

We will cover the important basics first. Stay with me.

Pinterest Basics

Business Account

Be sure to use a business account (not a personal one)! They are free, and they have multiple advantages. You can claim your Artist Website, you will get detailed Analytics, you will be able to create special types of Pins, etc. Oh and by the way: Their terms of service require using a business account if you want to promote your art!

I wrote a blog post about Pinterest business accounts some time ago, I would highly recommend to read it: http://www.elke.com/why-artists-need-a-pinterest-business-account-to-promote-their-art

Descriptions and Keywords

Every one of your Pins should have a good description (natural language, peppered with relevant keywords). Your profile description is essential too, it will help you to get found. Don’t forget your board descriptions, they are a great place to explain in detail what you are offering. Again: don’t forget to include your keywords.

Use both Pinterest guided search and search suggestions to come up with proper keywords.

I described in detail how to find the right keywords in Chapter 2, Lesson 2 of my Pinterest Online Course. This lesson is free to read, you just have to register for the free trial. Please be aware that you will get a series of emails after signing up, feel free to unsubscribe if you are not interested in infos and offers about the course.

Here is your link for the free trial, you will be able to read three lessons for free: https://pinterest-marketing-for-artists.thinkific.com/enroll/146176?et=free_trial

Ask your Pinterest Questions
How to create engaging pins? When and how often should I pin? How to get more followers? Are followers even important on Pinterest? Why is my number of impressions going down? Is there a way to know how many visitors I had and what they did on my Artist Website? How about Video Pins, I heard they are doing great on Pinterest? Should I invest in Pinterest Ads? How do I avoid getting my Pinterest account suspended? I heard Pinterest is bad, people are stealing pictures!

These are just some of the many questions you may have. Ask them here, and I will try to find an answer. Please give me some time, and please accept that my answer may be short and may not include screenshots, etc. If you need detailed step-by-step instructions and fast, personal support, I’m happy to offer you access to my Pinterest Course. Many (FAA) Artists already bought it, be sure to read some of their reviews at the end of this page: https://pinterest-marketing-for-artists.thinkific.com/courses/sell-more-art-with-pinterest

Is Pinterest bad for Artists?
In short: no. They had problems in the beginning (understanding copyright, etc.). Still, today they are similar to Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter (regarding their Terms of Service).

There is one exception, though: Pinterest is very transparent. Yes, really. It is quite easy to find stolen content (copyright infringement). And yes, there are thieves and spammers. Bad news: they are everywhere -- but you won’t be able to find them as easy as on Pinterest.

Just think of Facebook: if someone uses one of your images in a closed group with hundreds of thousands of members, you will never see this (if you are not a member of this group). And even if you are a member: what are the odds that you stumble upon your stolen picture? Pinterest has nifty things like visual search, similar pins, and more. This makes it very easy to find stolen content, even by accident. And yes, there are bad people out there. Two options: let it go or report “stolen Pins” to Pinterest so they can remove them.

Does Pinterest have problems and glitches?
Yes. All-day long. They always try new things (which is a good thing) but often this leads to problems (which is bad). I guess we'll just have to learn to live with this and focus on things we can change. Write to Pinterest support, they will try to help you. Sometimes the answers are not very helpful in the first place. Ask again.

And please ask yourself: When did you contact Facebook or Instagram the last time? How fast did they answer? Did you even get an answer from a real person? Did you get an answer at all?

Matthias, thanks for this thread, it's very generous of you to offer your help.

I have a few question's regarding your group FFA board I just joined, I hope it's OK to ask it here as you closed the other thread.

1. With 'pinning only FAA prints' you mean strictly fineartamerica.com domain links, or are the AW sites OK too? (As I see, most of the pins already on the board are AW links, but I think it's better to clarify...)
2. Is it OK to pin self-made mock up images leading to our AW, like this one:
https://hu.pinterest.com/pin/426786502191165670/

I think it's great you introduced the 1:1 repin rule, BTW...

I have another question that is related, pinning from the group board and your repin thread made me realize something that I think might be important. I just started a thread yesterday about this, but I think I will better ask it here and close that one.

I intended to repin the promoted pins of others to my themed boards (winter landscapes, seascapes, flying birds, skyscape art etc.), as I assume promotion works better this way than a general 'Prints of other artists' kind of a board - am I right?
But as many of them have images displaying the acrylic/metal/canvas/framed versions of the work with the tilted angle/view, I just couldn't because they look weird and out of the place among my 'normal' pins. And I don't think a regular user, who's just after ideas or nice images would pin them to a not print related board, like birds, winter, etc. Even if I was up to buy specifically an acrylic/metal etc. print and searching for the keyword, I would prefer a pin with a normal image about the piece I intend to buy, where the work itself can be seen.

But it might be just me, and maybe I'm wrong and pins with the images of printed versions might be popular and useful for promotion. And that is my question:
In your experience, do people repin these kinds of displays? Or is it better to upload a normal image with a title and description promoting the type of the print?

Thank you Matthias. Getting active on Pinterest again is high on my 'to-do" list and all these links will be really helpful.

 

Matthias Hauser

Thanks, Leonida, you're very welcome!

Moira:

Pins from FAA, Pixels, the AW, and mockups are all more than welcome :-)

Yes, pinning into more specific boards (with good descriptions) absolutely makes sense and will lead to more exposure for the pins.

Metal Prints etc. vs. normal images: it depends. Normal images tend to get more repins but with metal prints, canvas prints, etc. more people do realize that they can buy this image (and this can be a good thing). Just pin both types of images, add some mockups in the mix and you will be fine.

Mo: No problem. Getting more active on Pinterest is a good thing on every to-do list :-)

 

Matthias Hauser

Last year many artists, bloggers, and other pinners reported a drop in stats like monthly viewers, impressions, saves, and clicks. Why is this?

Well, some of the strategies that used to work well on Pinterest might lead to less engagement now. Even worse: if you overdo things like repinning your own stuff, Pinterest may suspend your account.

I wrote a blog post about how to adjust your Pinterest strategy. Learn how to master Pinterest in the new year:

So much for the "great" Pinterest. I've started to pin links a few days ago, and already my images are stolen and marketed by others...like zunkle.life....question what can be done???
https://ro.pinterest.com/pin/635781672381069977/

 

Matthias Hauser

1 Year Ago

Hi Tibor, please read what I wrote above (under the "Is Pinterest bad for Artists?" section).

If you want to have the stolen pin removed just go here: https://www.pinterest.com/about/copyright/dmca-pin/

Please be sure to read their help texts first (there are two "more info..." links on the DMCA page).

Hint: do not check the remove all checkbox otherwise your pins will be removed too! Feel free to check the "strike" checkbox if you are sure that the pin comes from the "thief" (and is not just a repin from an innocent user). If an account receives enough strikes Pinterest will take care of them.

Hope this helps!

Matthias, ...regarding that link for reporting copyright infringement I have already filled it up...immediately I noticed the photo which obviously carries the marks of the watermark removal. But seemingly Pinterest did NOTHING. Though I have offered them all the details. Furthermore that photo is also on this site https://zunkle.life/ where I presume lot of us can find our stolen works. So how else can you contact Pinterest regarding this user who obviously is running a business by stealing images from Pinterest??

 

Joy McKenzie

Tibor, on the link you posted, it states your kitty image was taken from flickr.

 

Tibor Tivadar Kui

1 Year Ago

Where? I cannot see anywhere now only on my saved repin..when I checked it I could not see any information regarding the source.Anyway on Flickr all my images are with All Rights Reserved...nothing for download. Also I have it on Alamy, but there the watermark is all over the image..so it is not taken from Alamy for sure. ...As a second thought it can be possible that Flickr is the source, because they offer high resolution display...maybe it is from there. I have also contacted by email that zunkle site...demanding the removal of the image from the Internet. For me it is not the first case when my images are stolen and reposted for commercial use..and it is an experience which I prefer not to repeat..hopefully they will take my message seriously. I have never bothered myself to reclaim my rights if an image was taken for personal use...often I give photos to my friends myself for free...but when I found someone stealing and reselling then I will go till the bitter end.

On the above link, right above the gray bar going across that says VISIT, it says the source of the pin.... your page on flickr.... and clicking on flickr takes you there.

I was just saying that this Zunkle life person wasn't taking your work off Pinterest. He is taking it off Flickr.

 

Tibor Tivadar Kui

The link takes me to that site, not to Flickr...so it was downloaded eventually from Flickr uploaded to zunkle.life, and pinned from there.So it is theft alright.

Jennifer White

1 Year Ago

Tibor - I'm curious how you discovered it? Did they change your personal pin, or did you search it?

Matthias - I spend a lot of time on Pinterest as you know. I try to keep my monthly followers up which is up and down as you know. I do find as you've stated before that videos and blog posts seem to get the most attention there. I've been watching my Google Analytics for my AW website and main website and have noticed a big drop in traffic from pinterest over the past year. I get a lot more traffic from other SM sites and I spend the most time on pinterest and twitter. I've had the thought for about a month that I was going to stop spending as much time there. I don't want too but I don't want to keep spinning my wheels there when I should be spending more time at the places giving me traffic.

I don't know what else to try differently. I feel like I've tried everything. I do more fresh pins, I've been trying to do more ad type and video pins which is helping monthly followers there, but not getting them to my website. Any suggestions on how to get them to click?

 

Tibor Tivadar Kui

1 Year Ago

@ Jennifer: At this time I discovered it by the suggestions given by Pinterest itself. I say this time because occasionally I do some reverse searches on the Internet as well...randomly...
@ Matthias : I did reported 2 times from the image itself...still nothing. Meantime I found that they have an email address copyright@pinterest.com for copyright infringements (https://policy.pinterest.com/en/copyright). I will wait until tomorrow. If those 2 reports still remain without effect, I will use the email. If still nothing I will go further...

If you fill this out *completely* they will act on it. But you have to answer all the questions and provide the link to your work online. And then give them a day or two.

I have my own website external to FAA in addition to the AW website. I have my own website claimed in Pinterest. I wish there was an option to claim an additional website (other than Instagram, Etsy, etc.), but can't find one.

Peggy: no ugly watermarks please, but a beautiful logo or a link (URL) to your website, etc. is perfect! Be sure to NOT place it in the lower right corner (this place is used by Pinterest for their symbols)

Bob, Alexios: Claiming the pixels.com subdomain or a custom website works (at least it recently worked for some of my online course students). We need Pinterest support though. And not all of them know what to do.
I created a script that worked 99% so far. How to claim your FAA/Pixels Artist Website with Pinterest: https://hauser.lpages.co/how-to-claim-your-faa-pixels-artist-website-with-pinterest/
Please let me know if it worked or not, I updated the document several times due to feedback from artists

David: Pinterest wants us to create 'Fresh Pins' (instead of repinning) now. You have access to my course, there is a whole lesson about Fresh Pins :-)

 

David King Studio

I know about fresh pins Matthias and my fresh pins are getting few or no views as well, that's not the issue, in fact I've only been pinning new links for a while now and using the Pinterest browser button to do it. For whatever reason Pinterest has made wholesale changes to the game that make it no longer effective for me, I'm done trying to jump through hoops to keep up with this nonsense. I'll keep pinning new uploads but it will just be "fire and forget" just to have the pins there.

 

Matthias Hauser

3 Months Ago

Hi David 'fire and forget' can work :-)

Don't know if you had the chance to see the analytics chart from one of my Pins (just scroll back in this thread). Many of my fresh Pins did have some impressions on the first day, then next to nothing. After three or four months some of them are back with a vengeance.

Keeping my fingers crossed.

@ Alexios I recently asked Pinterest to claim my FFA subdomain and they give you a code to put in your about section. They check this manually, rather than a tracking app. So it sounds like someone on the Pinterest side just didn't want to follow-up on your website. There's an FFA and a Pixels subdomain that you should have, I would suggest using the FFA. Also, if you ever create a Shopify store and connect your pixels account to that with a widget, Pinterest will claim the Shopify account. Hope that helps!

For everyone who needs more traction on your PINTEREST BIZ ACCOUNT, sign up for story pins. They boost story pins for a good a week or so. I recommend doing one story pin every day. This will be great organic traffic, not paid. Although, you can do paid ads with your story pins if you choose. Story pins are relatively new, so some functions may not be available for everyone.

Also, Pinterest is still pushing video pins. If you can, download TikTok and do quick little videos of your art. Then upload those videos onto your Pinterest account. It's great cross promotion and you get a better variety of music on TikTok. You can use these videos in your stories too!

Matthias - I post to Pinterest from my AW which is under my personal domain name.

My site is not claimed yet, I tried putting the meta tag in the 'About' section which I can actually see when I view the source code of the page but that did not appear to work - it probably needs to be in the head tags. I might try the customer service route.

Oh and I've been pinning with FAA's pin button. Is it better to use the official Pinterest button?

Unfortunately some of my new Pins that I saw showing up in the general search a few days ago have disappeared again. Maybe by claiming my site that'd help?

 

Toby McGuire

3 Months Ago

Just an update:

It's definitely better to use the official Pinterest button than the one built into the FAA listings.

For one it actually carries over a description.
For two I noticed the links for my custom domain in my pins start with http:// when I use the FAA button but start with the appropriate https:// when I use the official Pinterest button. I don't know if Pinterest could ding for that thinking it's an insecure link.

Also Pinterest does not appear to allow fixing the link after the fact as I always get 'Sorry! There was an error editing your Pin.' whenever I try.

 

Alexios Ntounas

Thank you very much for the reply Johanna! I'll try to get back to them and see if I can move it on. Story pins are not available in my area yet but I'll keep that in mind.

Toby, for the time being I create manually my pins, at least till I am able to claim my pixels subdomain.

Matthias, yesterday I successfully followed your course directions and claimed my Pixels site. It went fast and easy with your clear instructions and fast/efficient response from Pinterest. Yay!

Now I have a couple of questions...for years I have watermarked low resolution copies of my images with my forwarded domain url (my premium site), which is different from my Pixels site url. Will it matter that my claimed site and my watermarked images' url don't match?

Also, I notice that my claimed website showing on my Pinterest is for my forwarded domain and not for my Pixels site. I'm a little confused by that. Which site should I be pinning from?

BTW I tried signing up for Disqus so that I could ask my questions using that platform but for some reason it isn't accepting my request.

 

Toby McGuire

Nice! I was able to claim my site too.

 

Matthias Hauser

Peggy and Toby: Yay, congrats on claiming your Pixels Premium Website!

Peggy: sorry for the delay! I check the course forums daily but this thread only when my time allows. If Disqus does not work for you, please feel free to send me a direct email with your Pinterest questions. I may publish your question and my answer in the course forum, for all students to read.

Your questions answered: it does not matter when your claimed site and the watermark do not match. I would recommend pinning from the claimed website that is showing on Pinterest.

Alexios: very strange. It works for me and others. Do you use any popup blockers etc.? If so, please deactivate them for this URL. Please let me know if it worked!

Thanks, Matthias! I got your email about the course update today...perfect timing!

Just wanted to mention that I spent days trying to figure this one out - I couldn't see my boards that were created years ago, before taking a long break from Pinterest. All I could see were some very random old pins. After Googling it, it seemed as though the reason may have something to do with having connected my business account (which is something else I did long ago).

I tried everything and clicked everything (I thought I had anyway) in order to see my boards but they were nowhere to be found. I finally sent Pinterest a message. Back and forth we went over a couple of days (they're quite quick to respond, I'm happy to report). Finally we figured out what was wrong...I had to click on my avatar, then click on "Saved", which is in the middle of the screen below my number of followers, etc. My home page was defaulting to "Created" for some reason.

I only report my own stupidity in case somebody else is having this problem. :-)

 

Peggy Collins

BTW, I figured out how to create a story pin a few days ago and went ahead and jumped in.

I find this hard to believe, but my story pin has received 6,800 impressions! (Now I'll have to get back to your course to see if this actually means much of anything...)

 

Matthias Hauser

2 Months Ago

@Alexios: glad it worked :-)

@Peggy: Hahaha, I can assure you that you are not the only one who did not find their own boards :-) Pinterest is changing things all day long, many users had difficulties with this one.

Story Pin: very cool, congrats! Cats are big on Pinterest, I'm sure you will reach 10,000 or even 50,000 impressions with this one. If not, try to create some new ones :-)

Bizarrely after switching to a business account and upping my pinning the amount of interaction I get through Pinterest actually decreased to nothing. For some reason I was getting more repins when my account was just sitting there with 100 pins or so and I didn't touch it for years. The problem I think is that my pins can no longer be searched for in PInterest's search engine. My guess is that I pinned too much for a stretch and they banned me as a spammer or something.

Even with my site claimed I still can't see any of my pins in the Pinterest search engine. So for now I've just stopped using it since it really isn't providing any benefit.

 

Matthias Hauser

2 Months Ago

Regarding Story Pins, here is a little story for all of you:

I'm participating in the daily challenge where FAA artists create and post one work per day for 100 days (there is a pinned thread in the main discussion forum if you are interested or want to participate). I have no talent (at all) at drawing or painting, but I wanted to create some art with my hands for this, so I discovered acrylic pouring.

I poured away (on every weekend for the last four weeks or so) and had lots of fun. As I know that some people may be interested in this, I decided to document some of the pours on video. Yesterday I transferred the videos from my phone and decided to craft a quick Story Pin for Pinterest just before dinner.

Long story short: I almost fell off my chair when I opened the stats for this Story Pin today in the morning:

Pinterest Story Pin Stats Matthias Hauser

More than half a million impressions, 800+ repins, and 19 comments -- within a few hours. This is the Pin: https://www.pinterest.com/pin/426786502195918770/ 

I'm not happy that we can't use clickable links in Story Pins, but I gained more followers than on average days, and lots of other Pins got repins and clicks as well. Again: considerably more than on different days.

I will create more Story Pins for sure, especially as I heard some rumors (from a very reliable source) that we might be able to tag our products inside of Story Pins. This would be awesome; let's see if it will become true :-)

@Toby: I would recommend writing to Pinterest support. They can look into your account, sometimes they will tell if everything is okay. Saving too many Pins within a short period of time can get an account flagged or even suspended these days.

 

Toby McGuire

Thanks Matthias - I did write them about it and I just got back a canned answer that didn't really address anything after a week or so of writing them.

I'm going to try again though. My new pins briefly started showing up in Pinterest's search but then everything disappeared, even pins that I did years ago. That def tells me my account has probably been flagged.

 

Matthias Hauser

2 Months Ago

@Toby: try fresh pins, slow and consistent. Two to five per day, not more. I recently had a Pinterest Management client whose account got flagged. She pinned 40 or 50 Pins at once before I took over the account. It took us a month to get back in search.

Pinterest is not working for you? At all? Or it used to perform well in the past, but your stats went downhill in the last months?

You are not alone. I hear people complaining all the time. But, then some Pinterest accounts rock the stage. They show impressive numbers and even manage to grow from month to month. Why? What is the difference? And what are the main reasons why Pinterest does not work for some artists, shops, and other creative businesses?
