What is a Pinterest Video Pin?  

Video pins are an emerging format that can stand out from still images that display in Pinterest search results when someone is looking for content like yours.

Instead of posting still images, you can now schedule videos to grab the attention of those trawling the worlds biggest, searchable and discoverable content in the world (Pinterest!) for ideas.

Should I Be Publishing Video Pins?

Video Pins are great for drawing attention to your content and if your video is captivating as they can draw attention faster than images. They’re a great addition to your Pinterest strategy and easy to learn even if you’re only getting started building traffic to your site, offer or product.

You can use both videos and images on Pinterest and learn what style of content drives the most valuable traffic to your website, or gets re-pinned by others.

What Would I Use As Video Pin?

There are multiple wonderful, attention-grabbing ways to get attention on Pinterest, here’s a handful of ideas to help get you started:

– Product moving in slow motion
– Stop motion clip of you gift wrapping a product ready to send
– A spinning product to give a 360-degree view
– Someone using your product
– A beautiful lifestyle
– Decorating a shelf, or designing a table centrepiece
– Someone using your product in a beautiful environment

Anything you would normally post on Pinterest, but make it a video! Anything goes!
Start publishing and see what brings you the best results.

What Could I Use As a Cover Image?

For example, if you’re publishing a Pinterest video with a link to your ‘Top 5 Recipes With Lamb’ or, ‘Spring Fashion Ideas in your 30s’, you might want to add a cover image to your video so as someone is scrolling, your title grabs their attention and stops them passing by.

Alternatively, if you know there’s a beautiful and attention grabbing ‘still’ from your video, you can upload this still as an image and Plann will make sure you’ve got your best foot forward, publishing both your cover image and your video together.

Whether you are showcasing your product or service, establishing your brand as a thought leader, or even creating educational content, lists or just beautiful inspiration – Pinterest video pins can help increase your engagement, increase conversions, and boost sales – all without leaving Plann.
