How to Upload Video to Pinterest | Explainer Video

Pinterest should already be on your social media marketing radar.  If not – it’s worth finding more out about it.  Start brainstorming ways to integrate its platform into your social media strategy and increase engagement.  A picture may be worth a thousand words but most times a video proves much more effective in communicating emotion and captivating a viewers attention (see why this stands true here where ExplanatoryVideos.com’s Creative Producer Kenny Simpson, explains “How to Improve your SEO with Video”).

The difference between Pinterest and Facebook:  Pinterest is a public social network whereas Facebook is a friend-based relationship and contains focused topic content.Data from comScore reveals that “Pinterest crossed the 10 million unique visitors mark faster than any other standalone site in history.”  As a matter of fact, it’s interest is catching on with users spending an average of 98 minutes per month pinning and liking images on Pinterest.  Compare that statistic to Tumblers 2.5 hours.  Pinterest is quickly gaining its ground – primarily on the social media trail.

Who uses Pinterest?  It’s not just for crafters and bakers anymore.  Businesses can use it to post videos of their finished work product or a company can post their own explanatory video.
