Pinterest Success Starts With Great Content
Success with Pinterest is always trying new pin designs, new font pairings and sizes, and image styles to see what grabs people’s attention.
Of course, the number one thing is that you NEED to be creating content that is of interest to a broad audience.
If you’ve got a blog post about the sugar-eating habits of ants, you’re probably not going to get a huge boost in traffic.
So always, create content that you know will get clicks to your site.
The next step is to make interesting pin titles that attract interest.
Tell the reader what information they’ll learn, and the benefit.
For example, “Five Ways To Design Amazing Pinterest Pins That Get Clicks”
The “that get clicks” part is what the reader wants to achieve, so address it. That’s their pain point!
Never use clickbait and then to a “bait and switch” providing information on a completely different topic.
I’ve seen pins like this on Pinterest and comments from Pinterest users complaining about “false advertising”. It hampers your Pinterest following growth.

Create Pinterest Pins That Look Attractive
So you’ve got great content that you’re aiming to promote on Pinterest.
But the next step is to create attractive pins that entice clicks.
Even with free Pinterest templates, always consider a few things:
- Use attractive images that are relevant to your content
- Make sure your fonts are easy to read. Avoid putting the text right to the top, bottom or to the edges of the pin image.
- Attract clicks with text overlays that tell the Pinterest user what to expect and what the outcome is if possible
For attractive imagery, if you don’t have original photos that you can use, consider paying for stock photos that aren’t as popular as free photos. This can generate more interest and look unique.

Back To Those Free Pinterest Templates
Here are some examples of pins I created using these free Pinterest pin templates.
I customized them a bit to fit my theme. YOU CAN TOO!
I made 10 pins for one blog post in half an hour. Usually, it would take me a few hours.
Here’s a trick I use to have fresh pins on hand for weeks to come.
- Write down 10 variations on your pIn titles.
- Take a Pinterest template pack of 10 pins, and design them all for that ONE blog post. Use your 10 pin titles.
- Save a folder on your computer with the title of the blog post for which you created all those pins.
- Download the batch of pins you created Canva to your computer and save it in your new folder.
- Create a second folder within it and name it “Already Pinned”. This is so that you can easily keep track of which of the pins from the batch you just created have been pinned by you already.
- Pin a fresh pin each week! Use Pinterest, Tailwind or Later if you want to schedule them in advance.
There you go! Keep your pins all organized and ready to go when you need them.
