Videos are not just for TikTok, Youtube, or Instagram. You can also upload a video on Pinterest, drive traffic to your website, and get impressions and engagement.

This article will present you with a step-by-step guide to uploading and sharing videos on Pinterest.

But before uploading your videos on Pinterest, you should know the technical requirements for videos to be uploaded and shared on Pinterest.

How to upload videos on Pinterest

There are two methods that I am going to show you here to upload and share videos on Pinterest:

Method#1: Use Circleboom Publish

Circleboom Publish is a social media management tool that supports Pinterest, Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, and Google Business Profile. (TikTok will be supported soon)

Users can manage multiple accounts from each supported platform on Circleboom's simple, intuitive dashboard.

You can create, curate, design, share, schedule, and automate your social media pictures and videos on Circleboom Publish.

Built-in tools on Circleboom: Canva, Unsplash, and Giphy helps users to design their posts with ready-made templates, images, filters, effects, fonts, animations, gifs, etc.

To upload videos on Pinterest, you should follow these steps:

Step#1: Log into Circleboom Publish and connect your Pinterest account(s).

If you don't have an account yet, you can create one in a few seconds.

Step#2: On the main dashboard, navigate to left.

Here you'll see the "Pinterest Specific Post" option. Click on it.

Step#3: You'll be directed to the Pinterest post-creation screen. Select your Pinterest accounts. Don't forget! You can post to multiple Pinterest accounts at once.

As you see, you can upload your pictures and videos from your computer or your Google Photos account. Also, you can find and design images from Canva, Unsplash, and Giphy.

Curate and design content for Pinterest.

Step#4: After uploading your video to Pinterest, you can add a title and description to your Pinterest post.

And you can add an URL that viewers can visit from your Pinterest video.

Also, you can change the cover image of your Pinterest videos.

Change the thumbnail of your Pinterest video.

Step#5: Once they are done, you can share your videos to your Pinterest accounts immediately. Or you can schedule pins for a later time.

You can set time intervals and automate your Pinterest pins as a third option.

Method#2: Upload videos through the Pinterest dashboard

You need to follow these steps to upload and share videos on Pinterest through its native dashboard.

Step#1: Open your Pinterest account, select "Create" from the menu at the top of the page, and then select "Create Idea Pin."

Step#2: The next screen will appear so you can upload your video. Click on the "Create new" button first.  Then, you will find the box where you can import your videos. And you will see that they've provided all the necessary specifications at the bottom of the upload box.

Step#3: Include a destination link, your title, description, and tags (URL). Choose a board for your video. I suggest starting with the board that most closely resembles the video's subject matter. Thus, the keyword information will be able to adhere to the pin.

Then click on the "Publish" button at the top right.

Circleboom Publish provides a better experience for sharing videos on Pinterest. Very soon, a new feature will be introduced: Pinterest Hashtag Generator.
