How to enable, customize and style Pin It buttons on your Squarespace website

Fun fact - Pinterest is one of the top 2 drivers of traffic to my website, along with Google. Every time I publish a blog post, I pin the blog post image to Pinterest and sit back & relax while Pinterest sends tons of visitors over to my website. It's a small step that yields major results!

Pinterest is one of the most powerful search engines in the world and it works for every website, in just about any industry. If you aren't already using Pinterest to support your website or blog's growth, get on it asap!

One of the easiest ways to make sure that your content can be shared to Pinterest is by adding Pin It buttons to your website and blog.

Pin It buttons appear whenever someone hovers over an image on your site and in just one click, the image (and corresponding content) is shared to Pinterest for the whole world to see. It's super easy to set up and you can customize these Pin It buttons to meet your needs and look exactly how you want! 

If you're ready to add Pin It buttons to your Squarespace website, I hope this video tutorial shows you how easy they are to add and how you can style them to match your website!
