    Thanks for another great podcast. A quick question… you talked about how Sephora was using images created just for Pinterest, and not on there website, even though it linked back to a page on their site. When I go to pin something, it just shows the images from the site. How would I go about putting in my own image? Thanks!

      Hi Jessica. What Sephora did was create a Pinnable image that represented the product. An image that showed it being used such as a make up tutorial graphic. They would then upload that image to Pinterest, using the upload pin option, then add a link to the pin that goes to the product page on their site using the edit pin option.

      I hope this clarifies this up a bit. Let me know.

      Thanks for your question,

    Thanks to Vincent’s closing tip about good board descriptions. I realized that mine were too simple, and I just revamped them.
    Once again, a fun and helpful episode!
