Get your Pin image NOTICED as a board cover!

When you design a Pinterest Pin that is 600 x 900 (or longer)... put your graphic/photo that is 600 x 600 at the top. WHY? Because it will look great if you use it as one of your board covers & also it may have a better chance of someone (like me) choosing your pin to use as one of MY board covers which gives YOU more exposure. 

I try not to use any text in the 600 x 600 picture, as to my eye... it looks better as a board cover. Go to my Pinterest page https://www.pinterest.com/foodiehomechef/boards/ & see all my 171 boards. You'll notice that they don't look "busy" as only about 15% of them have any text on the pictures. Then scroll down towards the bottom where you'll see some boards... starting with Animals & running through some Group Boards & notice the difference when all the boards have all that busy text on them. It's almost hard to focus & be attracted to a particular board.   @PinterestGabby @PinterestJanice

@pamperedjoy2020  Hi Pampered Joy, welcome to this great community! Yeah Pinterest has a learning curve, for sure... but as to your 3 pages... I'm confident you'll get used to it soon enough.

I just went by your business page & became your 1st follower 🙂

One suggestion I have for you is to be patient with seeing results from your Pinterest Business page. It takes dedication and time... but you'll see results if you put in the work on a regular basis!

Good luck with your page & let us know if you have any questions or need any help.

Thank you for the great tips @foodiehomechef  - even though I am yet to get familiarize with the PINs and Boards creation.....but given time I will get there.

I am still confused that after joining Business Community, now I have three pages.... individual, business page and now business community page.  So there's a lot to catch up on.

My business page https://www.pinterest.com/pamperedjoy2020/  is new with only my first PIN post and more to come in the days ahead. 

Once again, thank you for the tip and  best wishes to you and your page.

@foodiehomechef    I appreciate very much for your support and as a first follower of Pampered Joy as well as your sound advice - have patience.  I still find Pinterest interesting with its Boards and PINs.  I still trying to navigate Pinterest's features and functions especially with its Business features. My initial Ad here is mainly for awareness of our presence. Yes, given time, I am sure to be more appreciative of Pinterest and how its business features can help to boost my brand,  and my store which we started 5 years ago in the local marketplace. 

Whenever you have the time, do drop by my store to browse and I welcome your comment/suggestion.

Once again, thank you and may good health, happiness and wealth, be with you and your loved ones.  Take care and stay safe!

@pamperedjoy2020Not only is Pinterest interesting, but IMHO it's fun too! I'll save this message & run by your store later in the week when I have some time.

Thank you so much for best wishes at the end of your post & I wish the same for you & your family... Many Blessings to you, Simone

@pamperedjoy2020    Stopped by your online store & I love it! You've really got a lot of different, interesting products that I've never seen before... but then again I live out in the country & don't get to stores too often lol.

I especially like that little pop-up in the lower left corner that shows up every time someone buys something... very clever. I really love those Luminous GLO Rings, they look like they'd be great for Halloween! Hope you've been advertising them.

Thanks so much for the welcome. I guess my biggest question is that each recipe has two pins one 1000 X 1500 and 600X 900. I choose one to post on my tailwinds. When can I post the other size to tailwinds? 

Second, how do you use the group boards? Do you post to one or two group boards a day? How does it work?

Third, I am trying to get authorized for RICH pins. I am computer illiterate. So when it says it needs SCHEMA does that mean you copy and paste your meta tag and other info into Schema or once you join does Schema do it automatically. I am always worried about messing up my blog and which updates to do and which not to do.

Thanks for any help or advice
