A Pinterest Bookmarklet Allows You To Pin From Any Site
Now that you have set up your Pinterest account you want to start pinning images onto your various pinboards.
Pin by Re-Pinning. You can do that by re-pinning images that you see on others’ board or you can pin images, infographs and videos that you see on websites if they have the Pin It Button installed.
Pin Using Pin It Buttons. Some websites have added Pin It Button (like the one you see here) onto their website and blog posts. So if you click on the Pin It buttons on the sites you visit it you’ll be able to pin the image from these websites.
Pin Using Bookmarlets. Some sites have not installed the Pin It Buttons yet. So in case you are wondering how you can pin from these site, don’t worry. The fastest and easiest way to Pin images from any website is to make use of a Pin It Bookmarklet. These can sit on your tool bar or you can save them as bookmarks or favourites.
This is something very easily done. Depending on which browser you are using to surf the internet (whether it is Chrome, Firefox or Internet Explorere) the steps are slightly different. And I have made a short video to walk you through this step by step so you don’t have to feel lost and can start pinning in 5 minutes!

So What Is Pinterest? Don’t have a Pinterest account yet? Or you don’t really know what this is and how it can help you grow your wellness business then here’s a post you can refer to. It has a report that tells you exactly how to set up your Pinterest account and how to start getting clients from this additional social media channel.
Pinterest is a great source of clients and awareness for many small businesses and it works especially well for those in the wellness industry as you can pin images of your clinics/spa centers, of your equipment, clients, charts, healthy recipes, posture charts, trigger points charts, massage chairs models etc.

You are most welcomed Heather. I am glad you and the Biz Community find it helpful! Indeed small businesses can and should tap into Pinterest for visibility and links. Wellness Professionals are a sub group of small business owners who happen to have lots of demonstrations they can show with images and videos!
