Pinterest for Video Promotion

Pinterest for Video PromotionDo you use Pinterest to promote your YouTube videos? Many bloggers have been working hard at placing a great image on their blog post with the hopes of people pinning the image and leading others to the article. But, getting that image pinned is not the only way bloggers can hope to gain traffic and influence on Pinterest. Some people are pinning their videos.

In this Google+ Hangouts on Air, I talk with Brain Hawkins and Mitch Mitchell about how they pin videos on Pinterest. Brian and I both do it differently, so we want your opinion.

How Do You Pin Your Videos on Pinterest?

Mind you, I don’t think either of us is right or wrong, we just make our boards in 2 different ways. So, what are your thoughts on Pinterest Video Boards?

Are your videos getting repined?

Are the videos you have on Pinterest getting views from there?

And, do you have a video board like myself or like Brian?

You can see the Pinterest boards we have:

Hot Blog Tips Youtube Videos

Fuzzy Wuzzy Videos for Kids

Yes, of course you can follow those boards! You can even watch the videos, cause we like sharing with you!

Let’s Talk

Do you pin your videos on Pinterest? Do you use a separate board or account? Are you driving traffic to your blog or YouTube channel? We’d like to get a discussion going with some nice advice and tips so please share your thoughts.

    Thanks Sheryl, nice topic. If we can get some great tips I’ll go in and edit the post later with the new advice. I will give credit with a link, of course.

    I’ll get it started. Don’t forget your hashtags. I just went in and added #video and #YouTube hashtags to each video.

    • LOL! I don’t use Hashtags on Pinterest anymore. I got far fewer repins for them if they had hashtags.

      I think it may depend on your target audience…you are going for other bloggy bloggers and they may not care, but many other people think it is spammy. Even if you add them, they get taken out if they do get repinned. Heck, I even take them out.

  2. Oh, Jeez, everytime when you post some reviews about marketing and ask “Do You?” I alway see that I’m missing something.. This post is a bright example of it. I dont pin my youtube video but step by step i follow you and hope my blog will be more successful!

  3. I’ll just do a video response to relavant videos in youtube. I haven’t used pinterest and by judging from your emphasis and from your hangout, may be I should give it a let me come back again if I find any unique way of doing it..thanks

  4. I do have Pinterest and I agree with Sheryl for the following reason. I feel that a dedicated board would be harder to get people to follow, especially if your videos aren’t the best. Having your videos mixed with others in the same group just gives people a bigger selection to look at.

    Hopefully, if you’re promoting the right videos, this may get more people interested in your board which would hopefully result in more people linking to it.

    Nice touch refering to Brian as the Brain too Sheryl ;)

    And Mitch, love the way you just throw yourself in there mate. A big thumbs up to you.

    Hi Sheryl, very nice to see that Pinterest enables this great feature that allows user to pin video to their board which can really give user videos go viral easier based on the traffic Pinterest has. And I haven’t got a video board yet.

    Thanks for Great Sharing – Ferb

    PS. It’s been waiting for the new design of your blog and this is a very nice design but perhaps, it’s better if you can use your domain name instead of your blog tagline.

  6. Thanks Sheryl

    Pinterest with youtube videos , works great. Till now I’m using Pinterest less for promoting videos due to less knowledge about tricks and strategies for video sharing on Pinterest which gets more traffic to my videos, But will continue to learn more about it.

    Thanks for sharing this great information.

    • I have noticed more views coming from Pinterest as I build my board. It only takes me a few minutes a day and could be worth the investment.

      I will probably have some more tips for using Pinterest in the next few weeks.
