Bonus Video With Purchase: Your Profile

Now I wanna walk you through some of the features that you have available to you on your profile page, particularly those of you that have the new look, the Pinterest new look or have upgraded your account. If you haven't done that yet, just in the top right hand, you'll be able to see there'll be an option to switch to new look if you haven't done this already but ah lot of you will automatically have the new look on Pinterest. And if you dio, your page will look very similar to what you see right here. But just a few minor tweaks that you might have noticed that I want to make sure you're aware up first and foremost is the ability to arrange your boards now. Ah, some of you have asked me on a particular board can you change the order of the pin? So if I clicked on this board here and I actually able to move, you know this pin over here and you know that doesn't work right now the pins air just shown in the order of which you've pinned them. So the oldest pins more towards the bottom.

Newest pens up the top, but you actually can change the order of your boards on your account. So say, one of my quotes. To be over here I'll have to do is click and drag. So let me show you that again, actually just clicked and held down on this board and then dragged it over to where I wanted that board to appear. So that's how you go ahead and move this stuff around is just click. There we go and drag. It might take a little bit of practice. You can see you have to make sure that you're dropping that new board where there's where there's a little bit of space also gets confused. So if it takes you a few times, don't worry. But you can see that as long as you're kind of grabbing up the top, finding a little bit of space in between one of these, there we go. Then you can drop that, and it should be right over where I moved it. So it kept taking me to opening at that board because it thought I was trying to click on it. But you can see particularly you have a great board at the bottom and you want to move it up towards the top of your page. That's super easy to Dio, You know, if you've got a board of the top that was trending for a while for you, maybe it was around holiday or some sort of current event or promo or sale. You were running and you no longer want to have that top position you again, which is click and hold that down and move it towards the bottom where you would want it to go. So stuff like that move it really far down towards the bottom. You would just continue to keep moving it down so I could go right here. Click and then just keep moving it down to the row where I wanted it to be. That makes sense. So that's one of the main things that has changed in terms that there used to be a little edit button. But now that's all you have to do. To move your boards is just hold down the one and move it over to where you want it to go. So that's that's a big new change feature. Um, also, some of you are asking about the about section. How do I edit my about section? What if I want to do something different up here to make any changes to this area? All you do is click this little pencil. Just click right there. A light box will appear where you can go up here. You can even change the way that your business on the business name appear. So say, I just wanted to be entrepreneurs academy. I could actually delete all of that clique Seve profile And look at now, the actual name that appears changes right there. So any changes you want to make, you can just click that little pencil. Add whatever you want to add in this area. You can see your user name right there. Your about section. You can update location and also your website, so any time you make any changes, make sure that you clicks a profile. You can see that you can visit account settings to change password, email, address Facebook and Twitter settings. Any of that you would just continue on and click account settings. So right there you'll be able to see all of the additional ways to change your search. privacy or notifications. Social network linking That's the easiest way to go ahead and update your account settings. Also, you always have the option in the top right to click settings underneath there. So let's go back to the profile. Look at a few more features, but I just want you to be comfortable with all of these little little tweaks. Now, there used to be a navigation bar at the top of Pinterest. Now what they've done is they've moved it over to this top left section and this top left. This is where you can go and find videos. So if you clicked right there, it's the same thing on the home page. Now, a lot of the navigation is in this little top left button. So if you want to find gifts, you would click right there. And this will take you to the gift section on Pinterest with circa doing by prices. So additional navigation now is found in this top left corner. Let's see if I forgot anything else on the page. Obviously, you can see where your pins your likes. This is where you're gonna click and see all the different accounts that are following you. So these are all the people that are following me and this is the number of the people that I'm following. So you can click and see the accounts that you're following as well as all the people that are following you Pretty cool, because I know some of you have wanted to know. Well, how do I follow up with people who are following me, or how do I reach out to them? You can click on followers and you can actually, you know, click on any of these and see who they are. Fall up with their website. You can comment on their pins if you want to initiate contact with people who start to follow you. Alright. So, back to the profile one more time. We've talked about how to move your boards around, how to edit the about section. You can see who's following you as well as who you're following and change at any point. Say you decide you don't want to follow someone anymore. You could actually click on following and then just select unfollowed. So if there's anyone that you're following, you no longer want to follow. You can simply select one of these and it will unfollowed Oh, you from their accounts so you'll no longer see their pins in your newsfeed. But that's about it. Those were the really important changes. You know, if you want to change your photo, you just click right there. Change picture and you can upload a file. But those were the real basics of making sure you can update and keep your profile very relevant and prioritize your content on your page.

So glad I saw this and got it to keep. With just a few tweaks, I turned my non-active boards into active boards and quadrupled my followers in just a few days. This spilled over into site traffic AND major lead generation for my mailing list. Thanks for the inspiration, Melanie.
