I Need A Pinterest Mentor!

I'd like to learn how to use Pinterest to promote my business! I already have quite a few pins by other people, from my website, and it's great exposure for me! Here's just one https://www.pinterest.com/pin/392798398759811532/

I'd like to know how to pin to other existing boards, when I try and do a pin the only options I see are 'Moon Gates', and under that, 'Create Board'. How would I instead pin it to Japanese Gardens?

I have a lot of beautiful photos of my work and I'd like to have more people see them!

Hi @WoodsShop, What unique and beautiful designs! First, I'm not sure you're aware but the Pinterest links in your header and footer on your website don't link to your Pinterest profile here: https://www.pinterest.com/WoodsShop 

From your profile page you'll be able to create new boards. I would suggest creating relevant boards that your work can be pinned to. If you need some best practices for making optimized boards I have a post on that here.

You can only Pin to other users' existing boards if they've added you as a collaborator (aka a group board), however you would be better off creating your own boards and pinning your content to them. Group boards are ideal when collaborating on a project with someone, but not intended to be used to market your products. 

I hope this helps a bit and congrats on getting your feet wet on Pinterest!
