Images for Pinterest should be taller than their width. Horizontal images don’t work well because it’s more difficult to spot them among other pins.
Be sure to watch the Show & Tell video that goes along with this episode to see examples of the best sizes for your pins.
For now, here are some basic guidelines to follow when creating your graphics
- Use colors, fonts, and designs that will be attractive to your target audience
- Always include a headline to let people know what to expect when they click on your link
- And create enough graphics to promote one link with a new graphic every week or 2 for at least 1-2 months. That’s anywhere from 4-8 images.
To create your graphics, apps like Canva and especially RelayThat are good for people who have no design experience or to just create graphics fast.
There are also lots of templates for Canva and Photoshop that can speed up your design process.
