Pin Vine Videos on Pinterest

Many businesses are using vine videos to market their product on Pinterest.  It is a .great way to attract more visitors to your business.  

There are a few ways you can load a vine video to Pinterest.  Lets view a couple of ways:

Thumbnail Procedure

This procedure lets you pin your Vine videos to Pinterest by pinning and creating a thumbnail image for your video. You need photo editing software to create the thumbnail. The advantage is that you get to choose the video thumbnail and you can add words to the thumbnail.

Here’s how to get your Vine video on Pinterest.

1. Create your Vine video.
2. Share your video on Twitter.

Post a Vine video on Twitter

3. Go to Twitter and locate your tweet with the Vine video.

4. Click view the media.This expands the tweet so your Vine video begins playing.

5. Click view on web. This opens your Vine video in its own brower tab. Keep this tab open because you will need the web address (URL) later in this procedure.

6. Create a thumbnail for your Vine video. Using your photo editing software, take a screen capture of the Vine video. Crop the image down to make a thumbnail image of the video. Save this file as a .jpg or .png file. Add a caption to the image (optional).

7. Pin the video thumbnail on Pinterest.Place the pin on the appropriate board and write the video description.

8. Display the Vine video pin in your Pinterest account. So far, you have pinned the thumbnail, but you haven’t linked the thumbnail to the video.9. Edit the pin. Add the Vine video web address (from step 5) into the Source field in the pin. Save the updated pin.

9. Edit the pin. Add the Vine video web address (from step 5) into the Source field in the pin. Save the updated pin.

Test the pin to make sure that you have everything working correctly. It takes two clicks to get the Vine video to play using this work-around procedure.

Another way to add your Vine Video to Pinterest:

1. Download the Vine app for your iPhone or Android device. Once you’ve downloaded the app, you can start creating six second videos. You can create them so that they are continuous for six seconds,

2.  Create the link to you Vine Video. Once you have created the video on the Vine app, you’ll need to share it on Twitter; which will create a unique, sharable url of the video you just shot. 

3.  Once it’s shared, you need go back on to Twitter (I recommend using the desktop version of Twitter) and find the tweet contains the link to your Vine video. 

4. Load the Vine video on a desktop computer.   Crop out anything that’s not needed in the screen.


At this time, you can’t pin your Vine videos directly to Pinterest.
