How to Create a Pinterest Showcase for Real Estate

Pinterest’s visual nature makes it an extremely compelling and popular social platform. For Real Estate Agents it can be a useful display tool for listings as well as a way to gain an understanding of client’s personal tastes and new home must-haves.

The Pinterest Showcase is a new feature on Business Pages, it is a cluster of images from Boards selected by the Account Owner, displayed at the top of the profile under the Profile Image and above the Boards. As a Real Estate Professional, this is a prime location for your personal listings. In this post we will outline how to create your Pinterest Showcase.

*Please note* the images displayed will be generated from Boards of your choosing. Before getting started make sure the images you would like to use in your Showcase are already uploaded to one or more of your Boards. You can use an image uploaded from your computer or an item you have repined. If you need to create a new board, find out how to do so here.
