OK I’m really late to the Pinterest game mainly because I always thought it was about pinning arts and crafts, but I was obviously so wrong. I decided to watch a Pinterest webinar today and even just within the short time of the webinar I learned so many new things about Pinterest.
What I wanted to try first was adding a YouTube video to Pinterest. Since barely any people ever pin videos I didn’t even know it was an option. I took a short peek during the webinar and figured out how to do it. It’s really easy, follow me here:
Find the video on YouTube that you want to share and open its page.
Click on the Share button.
Click on Share This Video
Copy the URL in the box under the Share This Video button
Go to your Pinterest page and click on the + Add a Pin button
Paste the YouTube link into the box under “Or find images to pin”
Click on the Find Images button
Your selected video will appear at the top of the window. Click on it to Pin it.
In the new window choose a pin up board and enter a description then click Pin it
