When you just started your blog and you have five blog post, you probably don’t have a lot of your own content to share on Pinterest. It’s not a secret – long, vertical images work better on Pinterest rather than square and small, but not everyone wants to include a giant image for the blog post or want to include five different blog post graphic within the post because it’ll look cluttered and can distract your reader.

Before we start, to better understand what I’m about to teach you to follow these steps:
1. Install browser Pin it button (I’m using Firefox)
2. Now, go to my previous blog post How to set up Rich Pins on Pinterest in 3 simple steps. Grow your blog traffic & get noticed on Pinterest (+ FREE step-by-step guide to get Rich Pins) and click the pin it browser button
3. You’ll bunch of images from main blog page, but besides featured image for that post, there are three different pinnable images for this blog post (pink border)
4. And you’re about to learn how to hide images within your post or on your pages
So first, obviously you’d have to design blog post images. I usually design one main image which I choose as a featured image and then up to six different images which fit my brand. As I’ve mentioned, you can also do this trick for other pages on your website like I have multiple pinnable graphics for my Pinazing Results course. This method not only helps you experiment and see which of you designs has more potential and get more repins but also increases chances that someone would find that blog post because you shared more than one blog post image on Pinterest. This easy trick, helped me grew my traffic from Pinterest and make it my largest referral within few months.
