As Pinterest’s popularity skyrockets, many newcomers are surprised to learn that they can’t join in the fun without an invitation. At PinLeague, we’re frequently asked how to get a Pinterest invite sooner- with many users reporting that they’ve waited weeks or months for a Pinterest invitation. If you find yourself in this predicament, fear not. We’ve outlined a number of ways you can get a Pinterest invitation- as well as some traps to avoid!

How to Get a Free Pinterest Invitation

(1) Request an invite directly from Pinterest. Got to and select “Join Pinterest.” Follow the instructions to request an invitation (you’ll be asked to link a facebook or twitter account or provide your e-mail address). The wait time can be long, as the site continues to grow in popularity.

(2) Find someone who already has a Pinterest account to send you a Pinterest invite.

Tell Friends to Look for “Invite Friends” Under Their Account Menu

Current users can invite you with just your email address. If you are requesting an invite from a source you know and trust, it should not be a problem. See if you Mom or best friend has a few Pinterest invites left to share.

As is always the case when something gets “hot”, there are always a few bad guys out there looking to cash in on the demand for Pinterest invites. In addition to selling invites (plain greedy in our opinion), some people have shared their email in response to Craigslist ads or Facebook posts only to find themselves bombarded with spam. Worse, some have had their email account hijacked. Use common sense and be safe. On site that we hear is quick, responsive and safe is Free Pinterest Invite Code.

(3) Ask Tailwind. If you don’t know anyone with a Pinterest invitation to spare, don’t despair – and don’t pay for one. Drop us a line at [email protected] and we’ll be happy to help. If you want to say “thank you,” simply follow PinLeague on Pinterest for helpful Pinterest tips and tricks as a “thank you.” 🙂

Pinterest Profile Picture: How to Choose the Best Image, Size and Style

Your Pinterest profile picture is an important part of your Pinterest presence. It appears wherever you go on the site. Your Account page, pins, repins and comments all carry your image. It represents YOU to the Pinterest universe. Many users reuse their facebook or twitter photo, but Pinterest is different from facebook and twitter. So, give some thought to choosing the right Pinterest profile picture.

Pinterest Profile Pic

Don’t overbrand. It may be tempting to use your company logo as your Pinterest profile picture. That only works well if you are a large, known brand. If you don’t always use your logo that will make your product for a more pin-worthy visual.

People like people. For a smaller businesses and personal profiles, we recommend using a human face. People respond better to seeing real human faces on social networks. Choose someone to be the “face” of your Pinterest page. It could be you, a partner, employee, even a client. Anyone who visually represents your brand is fair game. Only use a logo if you feel you must.

Emotion matters. Your Pinterest profile picture should exude an emotion you want customers to associate with your brand. A fashion house may use a model who screams exclusivity. At Tailwind, we want our customers to feel empowered- even superhuman. So, the Tailwind Pinterest profile features a superhero cartoon created by our co-founder, Alex.

Size matters. Your Pinterest profile picture dimensions are 160×160 pixels. Your image should be square and at least that size. If not, your profile picture may be distorted or blurry. Large images may fail to upload, so resize large pictures before you upload them. Rectangular images are centered, resized, and cropped automatically so the resulting profile picture might not be ideal.

How to Pin to Pinterest from the Web on iPhone or iPad

According to CNET News, Apple mobile devices account for 65% of mobile web traffic. I know I contribute to that. Anytime a have a couple of minutes to spare, I pull out my iPhone and catch up on my favorite blogs, read the news and of course check out Pinterest.

Sometimes, I find things on blogs or websites that I’d like to pin but they don’t have a “Pin It” button. I have found a solution to that problem…


Pinterest App on iPhone and iPad

Pinterest has an app for the iPhone that can be also be used on the iPad. But, did you know that from that app you can download a bookmarklet that allows you to pin to your Pinterest boards from Safari?



How to Add the Bookmarklet


From the profile page of the Pinterest app, click on “Account”, then click on “Install Bookmarklet”



Safari will open to a page that looks like this



There are instructions on how to to complete the install on this page. If you’ll notice, it says that it is easier to install on Safari or Firefox then sync your phone.

It really isn’t all that hard to do directly on your iPhone or iPad. Here’s a video to show you how.


Since not everyone in cyberspace has jumped onto the Pinterest bandwagon. A lot of sites still don’t have the “Pin It” button, silly huh? 

If you have a blog or website and don’t have a “Pin It” button let us know why in the comments below.
