Bonus Video With Purchase: How to Edit Your Pins
Now let's talk about how to actually edit your pens if at any point you want to go in and change a preexisting pen. So if you go to your account and you select pins at the top left, you'll be able to see all of your most recently pinned pins. And if you'd like to go in and edit any of them, all you have to do is hover over the pin and select this little pencil looking button, and you can go in and reassign the pin to a different board. You can update a description, and you can also change the source. Now. The source link is very, very cool, because whenever you pin something from a website online, Pinter's will automatically add a source so that when you click it a link back to that site. But you do have the option, and this is particularly strategic. If you're pinning from your own site and you know you want a link to a coupon page or you want a link, Teoh an opt in page, or you just want to redirect the traffic somewhere else. This is where you would go ahead and add the source so at...
any point you can actually change where your pins linked Teoh. Now. The reason editing a pen is very important is because if you do choose to add a pin from your computer like we talked about in an earlier video, you go up here or use. Click here to add a pin from your computer from a website of from Pinterest. When you do select, upload something from your computer, it will not link anywhere. Since Pinterest doesn't know where it's coming from, it's coming from your computer. So say, I wanted to select something and actually link it Teoh a blawg post or a page on my site or somewhere that I wanted to actually direct traffic. I would click open. I would, of course, assign it to a proper board. I would add my description member with my call to action, a link a price if appropriate and select. Pin it so I could just say example Here, select pin. But you have to add a second step because if I click, see it now and here's his pin. Now on my page. When I click that pin, all it does is expand the image doesn't actually drive traffic anywhere, and the whole reason we want you to be using Pinterest is increase your traffic. So what you need to do is actually click again on that little edit button and add a source. So maybe I'm going to choose. You know, my website, the more specific of a place you can send them, the better click save changes, and now when I click on this pin, it takes me directly to a website. So you want to take advantage of this opportunity to get more traffic, and you also really want to train your followers. You don't want them to think that the content you pin on your page doesn't go anywhere, so always remember, went up. Look uploading from your computer to go back in, edit that pin and add a link. And remember, you can also go back at any time and change where your pins linked Teoh. Now this is really something you Onley want to do with your own original content. You don't want to go and change other people's pins. You don't want to take someone stuff from their website and redirect to your own. That's bad etiquette. What you wanted you is just optimize the content you create and drive it to the most particular and effective places on your website.
