USING PINTEREST TO SHOW OFF YOUR STYLE
Pinterest is a free, virtual pin board where you can save all your ideas in one place, and it’s one of the easiest ways to share your project inspiration with DirectBuy. A dedicated Pinterest visual design board for your project will help our Project Coordinators get a better sense of what your style is, what direction you want to take your project, and what items and designs you are interested in.
How to Create a Visual Design Board and Start Pinning
STEP 1: JOIN PINTEREST
Go to Pinterest.com and sign up with your email, Facebook, or Twitter account.
STEP 2: CREATE A VISUAL DESIGN BOARD
Create your visual design board by selecting “Create a
board.” When you’re naming your board, make sure it has “DirectBuy” in the name like “DirectBuy – Bedroom,”
so we are able to find it. The category of your board
should be “Design.”
STEP 3: INSTALL THE “PIN IT” BUTTON
The easiest way to add pictures from any website to your
board is to install the "Pin It" button to your web browser. Visit the "Goodies" page at Pinterest.com/Goodies to learn more.
STEP 4: START PINNING
To add a pin to your board, either click on the "Pin It" button on images from other websites, pin images other users have placed on their boards, or upload images of your own from your computer, tablet, or mobile phone. Be sure to tell us what you like about each pin.
STEP 5: SHARE
Email your Project Coordinator and share your visual design board. Look for DirectBuy to follow your inspiration and see what cool things you are pinning.
STEP 6: KEEP PINNING
Keep your board up-to-date by pinning regularly, especially as your project evolves.
