Sure these Pinterest graphic design ideas for lifestyle bloggers are pretty & aesthetically pleasing, but it’s not why I love them. I love these because they are strategic pins that serve the goals of the lifestyle blogger AND target different kinds of Pinterest users.
How it serves the blogger: It gives them a way to share affiliate-link-heavy-posts on Pinterest in a visually appealing and strategic way.
How it serves the pinners: It gives them a quick visual on what they’d find by clicking through so they can choose whether they want to shop
How it serves the blogger: sometimes there is only 1 photo within a post so this gives them a chance to make that photo go further. It’s also a big opportunity for using more keywords. Pinterest can read the keywords on the graphics which means this text is a big SEO orpportunity.
How it serves the pinners: again, it tells them exactly what they’re going to get if they click through (which is not always the case with a photo). It also serves as a tease by sharing an enticing headline and call to action without any more visuals.
How it serves the blogger: more photos = more chances to impress the pinners. I also hate to see bloggers waste the time and money they spend on photography by just sharing 1 image per graphic. This allows you to utilize more of the fabulous images you already spent good time and money on.
How it serves the pinners: this Pinterest graphic shows them more than just the one photo so there’s actually a reason to view this post rather than just save the image to a board. Often in the fashion and lifestyle spaces, users will take the photo itself, save it to a board and just view the photo when they want to recreate the outfit rather. With this design, they would be more inclined to click through to see close ups of the images and to shop the featured outfit.
