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
