One of my clients asked if it was possible to link her business Facebook page to her Pinterest account without having to set up a website. She’s doing very well in Facebook and doesn’t want the hassle of paying for and maintaining a website as well. At the time, I didn’t have a good answer.
I thought about the Pinterest / FB account connection last night and realized there is a useful solution: The WooBox Pinterest app for FB. It’s free, but you have to create an account on WooBox to get it.
Be logged in to your business Facebook page.
Go to Woobox.com and create an account.
Click on “get started for free”
Then you’ll see a list of apps for your FB page:
Click on the Pinterest selection. This one is free to use.
I think that WooBox will know which FB page you want if you’re logged in at the time, and then you have to give it the name (URL) of your Pinterest business page.
You’ll get a big red P on your business page tabs:
When your visitors click on the P, they’ll see your Pins and boards.
Make sure you link your FB account to your Pinterest account so your customers can find your FB page from inside Pinterest. (Account / Settings)
(BTW, if you want to rearrange the tabs on your page, click on the pencil that appears on a hover over the tab, upper right corner of the tab. You’ll see a list of places you can move that tab.)
