Here is how you Create Pinterest Story Pins with images and Videos to Increase clickthrough traffic to your website.
You do know that Pinterest Story pins are another sort of content that you can create on, right? They work the best for plans, DIY, instructional exercises, brand stories or bit by bit, suggestions, and more. Pins get colossal re-save numbers in light of the fact that Pinterest appears to give story pins an extra lift in the smart feed to advance this new kind of content.
They’re also not the same as all standard pins, which is what I will talk about in more detail in this episode.
So in the event that you need to know whether story pins are now accessible for you, you can keep checking your Pinterest account and tap on “Create Pin” and check whether you have story pins.
If you don’t, like most Pinterest functionalities, they roll things out in phases. So patience, you will get access soon.
By the way, I have a client who lives in the UK and has no access, while I do. Also, our lifestyle account has no access yet. So it’s probably account-based.
Now, let’s get on with what a story pin means for your business
If you have access, click make new, and you will see here that you can add up to 20 pictures or recordings to the story pin.

Pinterest Story Pins for the Beginner that Stand out
Okay, my first suggestion is when you’re making story pins, upload a video first, then add a few pictures to your slide. This is in light of the fact that by having a video in any case, you will help your story pin stand out against most pins.
On the Pinterest feed, most are photos, so your video will command more attention and hopefully ACTION.
I also suggest you add text overlay on top of your video since this additionally helps let your audience know what it’s about and thus click/save your pin.
Did you know you can make a straightforward video for your first slide in the story pin via an App?
What are the picture or video proportions suggested for story pins? According to Pinterest, it should be 1000 wide x 1500 tall, or 9 to 16′. The prescribed maximum video size is, 50 megabytes and for photos 32 megabytes.
The beauty is you can create one via the App or use trusty canva.com which comes with optimized templates and thousands of stock images.
I highly recommend you make your video a little snippet leading to the longer menu on YouTube or on your blog, or even your Facebook live. That means I would make my Pinterest story video 3-4 seconds long.
I promise you that regardless of whether you’ve never made a video you will find that it’s extremely simple to make video pins utilizing a ton of predesigned templates inside Canva.
Plus with Canva you can utilize your own photographs, recordings that you made with your telephone and you can take recordings or stock photographs from different stages or even the content from your site and utilize every last bit of it to make videos for story pins.
The layouts are 100 adaptable and in mini recordings.

Your pins are rewarded with more exposure.
