Pinterest Pin mistakes you can avoid
While you can choose any number of images for your page cover there are some things you shouldn’t do. Certain mistakes will detract from your page and may even detract from how users perceive your business.
Some Pinterest Optimal Pin mistakes you can avoid:
Having too much text – Some text is great, especially if it’s being used for branding. Some photos only have text overlay against a solid backdrop. This is typically not a good move, even if you’re focusing on an insanely motivational quote; instead, your cover photo should actually be an image that’s able to speak for itself.
Too much going on – We’ve all seen pictures on social media that are so cluttered that looking at them too long might give us a headache. There’s lots of colors and focal points and things to look at. While this might sound appealing at first, it’s just difficult to focus on and can even look sloppy, it might just be too much.
Choosing something generic – You want your cover photo to stand out; that’s what it’s there for. Choosing a generic image that could be about your business somehow won’t have the impact that you’re looking for.
Not adding branding – When possible, adding subtle branding like your logo to the image can make a big difference with brand recognition.
Some amazing cover photos will just be made from graphics while others will use actual photographs. Whichever you choose, there are plenty of resources you can pull images from if you don’t have a high-quality image that you’ve taken yourself.
Many user generated content is free and often available in abundance. Some UGC is extremely high quality, and many users would be honoured if you used it as part of your cover photo. You can upload your own photos too and apply them to the template.
You have other option, Unsplash, is a free stock photo site that has tons of photos available for commercial use.
