Using Pinterest Boards to Market your YouTube Channel
By combining the power of YouTube and Pinterest you boost your business’s social media presence and gain a lot of subscribers almost instantly. Pinterest is a great aesthetically pleasing app that can give you great ideas for a visual overhaul. Getting people over from Pinterest to YouTube is a great way of getting more, without using Pinterest ads.
In this article, we will explore how you can add YouTube videos to Pinterest and get the best of both worlds. It is easy to implement and can be completely outsourced if you want to.
Here are the steps you need to follow to add YouTube videos to Pinterest.
Get Google Chrome
One of the best browsers to come out in recent times Google Chrome is a powerful browser that can do a lot with its extension. Get the “Shareaholic for Pinterest” plugin which makes pinning very easy. Click on the red Pin button and the plugin will get you all the details from the YouTube Channel.
To get the best of all the traffic that is coming from Pinterest you will want to optimize your videos first. Make sure the description and title are fully optimized before you pin the video. Then select an active link so that it is the first thing that viewers see. It is important because your first impression is what makes a lasting impression.
Setting up your YouTube channel for new viewers
Once they see your video on Pinterest, users might be interested in what your channel has to offer. When they reach your channel’s landing page they should get a view of an optimized channel. If this is not the case there is a chance that they might not explore all the content you have curated for them.
Add a photo of yourself and optimize the channel name and description box before you start pinning your videos. Be ready for an influx of users as this is a great way to lead people to your channel.
Select the video you want to pin
Once you are done downloading Shareaholic for Pinterest and making your channel presentable for a new audience you now have to select a video. Go to your YouTube Channel and select the video you want to pin by using the one-click button in the top right corner.
A board dedicated to your channel
When creating and naming the board make sure you use SEO-friendly terms. This is because Pinterest gets traffic from both inside the community and from Google’s search results too.
Finding good keywords can take time especially for your own niche. Use the various tools available to see which keywords rank well and then make your board around them.
Keywords in description
Leaving the description box is a blunder that many people and businesses commit. Luckily for you, we are here to steer you clear of any such mistakes. Use the targeted keywords belonging to your niche and with 500 words you will still have enough words to add a description.
Link a landing page
Add the URL of the landing page where you are trying to get people in the description box. Just in case people cannot see your prompts they will still be able to go to the page from the description box itself.
Pin all your videos
Now that you know how to pin a video, keep doing this for all your videos. As Pinterest is a great tool for discovering new things, hopefully, the community will find your videos interesting too. Doing this will make Pinterest a part of your back linking strategy too.
Following the above-mentioned steps, you can increase your YouTube engagement, pins, and views at the same time.
