Automatically pin content to Pinterest using a WP plugin.

Automatically pin content from WordPress to Pinterest

You're active on Facebook, on Instagram, somehow on Twitter. But how about Pinterest? If you have great visual content to share, I strongly advise to consider Pinterest in your social efforts. But the process of manually pinning content to your boards can be time consuming. If you're running a WordPress website, there's an easy way to automatically pin content to Pinterest, using a simple premium plugin. It's called Pinterest Automatic.

It's very easy to set up. Simply install and activate the plugin, then go to SETTINGS, type in your Pinterest email address & password (BTW, I advise you to have different passwords for the various networks to avoid being exposed if one of them suffers a security breach).

You can choose the board to which you'll automatically pin content. And the post type you want to pin when you hit PUBLISH. In this example, I chose to automatically pin Portfolio items.

You'll notice a new frame in the sidebar of the selected post types. You can choose which image  will be posted to Pinterest (here the plugin suggests both the image inside the post & the featured image, which in my example happen to be the same because of my portfolio's structure).

The nice thing about pinning to Pinterest is that you'll get a link back to your website, which can drive substantial traffic, depending on your niche.
