You can pin a video almost as easily as a photo or graphic. Be sure to optimize the size of your pins, make sure that what you pin is around 500 by 500 pixels. Keep your fans in mind by pacing your pictures, testimonials, and videos. Stagger your posts at different times of the day to increase the possibility that your pins will be seen by more followers. As with any social network, the only way that you learn your way around it is to jump in and start doing it. Even though you may be concentrating on marketing, Pinterest can be a lot of fun as well, and you'll do a lot better job if you enjoy it.

Now go get pinning.
