Pinterest Top Tip…How to Pin with Instagram
Why Pin with Instagram?
The thing I love about Pinterest is that Pinspiration (see what I did there) doesn’t have to come solely from Pinterest itself. Other search engines / sites can be utilized to add interesting content directly to your Pinterest boards! Recently I have started to Pin with Instagram…both platforms complement each other really well!
I have used this technique to build up my group board “Introducing the Artist; Positive Inspiration.” The intention of this board is to introduce and provide links back to other Artists that inspire. Since Instagram is full of fantastic Artists it is a great place to discover great art to share! Sharing is caring!
The excitement doesn’t stop…If you are an Artist with an Instagram account, you can easily share your own posts via Instagram to Pinterest. In this way you can showcase your artistic flare to a new audience.
Check out my “Personal Portfolio: Art & Design” board for Pinspo. I find Instagram to be the most user friendly platform to share personal Artwork. But I love it even more now I know how easy it is to duplicate my posts via Pinterest to reach a wider audience.
OK that’s enough preamble…Let’s crack on!
How to Pin with Instagram
First choose the post that you wish to share. For the purpose of this demonstration I will choose the image below from my Insta. See those 3 dots in the top right hand corner…get clicking.
Once you have clicked the 3 dots the following menu will appear. Click “Share.”
On the next screen click “Copy Link.”
If “Link copied to clipboard” appears then you’re good to go!
Open up yer Pinterest baby!! It will automatically display the below message so just click on that the arrow.
The screen below should automatically appear. The last step is to pick the most fitting of your boards to save your chosen image/link within.
As always I really hope this has been useful! Any questions hit me up in the comments I am more than happy to help.
Also please direct me to your personal Art space on Instagram if you would like to be added to “Introducing the Artist; Positive Inspiration” on my Pinterest 🙂
I am always on the look out for inspiration Artists / Art to share. Anything shared automatically links back to the original source aka your Instagram page 🙂
