How to Post on Pinterest on the Phone?
Follow these simple steps to Pinterest using your mobile phone:
Step One: Get the mobile app
If you are an Android user, you’d want to head over to the Google Play Store and download the Pinterest app onto your phone. If you’re an iPhone user, it’s not a problem. You just need to head over to the App Store and download the same – it’s free.
Step Two: Sign in/Sign up
If you already have a Pinterest account, then you don’t need to sign up again. But if it’s the first time you use the platform, then you will need to start off with a new account.
Just type in your email address and password and follow the on-screen instructions to sign up.
Make sure that your email address is valid, as this will be used to identify your activity on Pinterest when they review it and take action as per their approval policy.
Step Three: Create a pin
Once you have signed in, you’re ready to start pinning! If you wish to make a post, click the Plus button and choose the image. Also, click on Board to create a new board.
Step Four: Publish
You can take a photo with your phone camera or select from your gallery (which is usually the case).
Go ahead and give your Pin a title, description, alternative text, and website link.
Next, select the Board you wish to publish, and voilà, your Pin is live! You can pin any of your things and whatnot.
There’s really no limit to what you need to pin. However, you’d want to stay focused on your brand or business needs.
