Why Repurpose Your Instagram Content to Pinterest?

Do you think you can’t use Pinterest for marketing if you don’t have a website or blog? Guess What? All you need is your Instagram content! Work smarter, not harder, by making the most of the content you already have and repurposing it on multiple platforms. Here are some ways you can repurpose your Instagram posts to Pinterest to increase your views and expand your reach to a wider audience.

 

5 Ways to Repurpose Instagram to Pinterest:


 

1: Convert a reel, story, or carousel post into an idea Pin

Limit this to educational and inspirational content that provides a solution or idea – nonsense humor and personal info about you doesn’t do so well here

Here’s an example!

2: Create multiple static pin designs that link back to your IG post or reel

Different visuals will attract different audiences, and this will help bring longevity to your IG content by directing traffic back to older posts.

Here’s an example!

3: Convert a reel or short excerpt of an IG video to a video pin

Video content stands out from a sea of static pins. Use this strategy to direct traffic to the full length video or caption on Instagram

Here’s an example!

4: Create an infographic static pin that summarizes a long caption, IG video, or carousel post

Pinners love a good infographic! Use this as a teaser preview that links back to the full content.

Here’s an example!

5: Share your IG post directly to Pinterest

This is less than ideal since you can’t edit the Pin title & description for SEO. However, you might as well give it a try! This will just pull the first few sentences from your IG caption, so you’ll want to strategically use Pinterest-friendly keywords in the beginning of the caption to make this more effective.

Here’s an example!

One Thing to Remember as You Repurpose your Instagram to Pinterest:

You may be thinking, “Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezy,” right? But remember one thing: your Pinterest audience is not the same as your Instagram audience. They search in different ways and use each platform for different purposes. Be sure to tweak the sizing, keywords, and visuals to follow Pinterest best practices and appeal to Pinner search preferences.
