There are many pins on Pinterest that if your pins are not high quality or eye capturing they will get looked right over.
Here’s How To Create Eye Capturing Pins:
#1 – Use High Quality Images
Using high quality images makes your pins professional looking. When you are putting an image on your pin make sure they are high quality images. Try to stay away from using images from Google. You don’t need to spend money on high quality images. Pixabay and Unsplash are two great places to find free high quality images.
#2 – Use Big Text
This is a must! Having big text is a great way to capture someones attention. If your text is to small no one will take the time to read it and it will be skipped over easily. Look at the example below:
This is a good example. The text is big and eye capturing which draws attention to the pin.
In this example the text is small and difficult to read. Reminder to use big text on your pins.
#3 – Intriguing Words
The text you place on your pins need to draw attention. This comes with the name of your post as well. Since you put text on your Pin that are the title of your post you need to make sure your post is attention grabbing.
