A quick note before we dive into the Pinterest Board Ideas
One of the most common questions I get from online coaches and course creators is… “What Pinterest boards should I have?”
And, here’s the thing —> The answer is going to be different for every coaching business. Your goal will be to create boards that have titles and topics that roll up to your specific content and offers.
And, here’s the other thing 🤣 —> Your boards should be quite specific, so they can help you get discovered on Pinterest by juuuuuust the right ideal potential clients.

Pinterest Boards – The Basics
Many of my clients and course students are brand new to Pinterest marketing – and even brand new to Pinterest sometimes!… So let’s start with the true basics. As in…
A Pinterest board is a collection of individual pins. Boards give users a way to categorize and group pins. On the platform, users create boards with names that indicate the “topics” or “categories” that they plan to curate ideas about.
Pinterest boards are a lot like those notebooks I used to use in my story above. I organized my ideas in those notebooks so I could find them later. If I was looking for a resume template, I’d put it in my “Career” notebook… Same with Pinterest boards. When you save a pin to a relevant board, it will be easy to find it later.
On your Pinterest profile, when you create boards, you’ll find them on your profile’s “Saved” tab.
Below, the image on the left shows an example of what that Saved tab will look like, after you’ve created several boards.
(This is the profile of a past client – Dr. Natascha Hebell, a wellness coach who helps women overcome the trauma of the infertility journey.)
The image on the right shows what a board looks like after you open it from the Saved tab. It also shows you where the board title and board description are.
(Note: As a regular Pinterest user, you can create boards about any topics. But when you transition to using Pinterest for business – to attract clients, for example – that changes a bit. Now, you’ll want to create boards that are based on what content you create. And your board topic choices should be guided by your keyword research… More on that in the blog posts linked a little further down.)
Now, How do you create a board on Pinterest?
It’s easy to create a board. Start at your main profile page, and go to the “saved” tab.
- Hit the “Plus” sign to the far right of your screen.
- Add your board’s name, and hit “Create.”
(You will be able to change the title later if you’d like.)
(Alternatively, when you’re about to pin something, you can also create a new board while selecting the board for that pin. But, when I’m setting up a new profile with a client or course student, we typically create boards from the main profile page.)
And, how do you edit your Pinterest board?
To optimize your boards with your keywords, you’ll need to edit your board. To do this:
- Click on the board.
- At the top of the board, hit the three dots next to the board name.
- Select “Edit board.”
You’ll now see a window (image below) with options to:
- Select one of the pins on the board to be the “board cover.”
- Change / update the board title.
- Change / update the board description.
- Change the visibility of the board. (i.e. make it “secret).
Important Note: Don’t forget to hit “Done” when finished – to save the changes you’ve made!
So, those are Pinterest board basics!
Now that you’re clear on those, in the rest of this blog you’ll find a summary (with links!) of some of the other Pinterest board ideas and resources you’ll find on my blog.
I hope these will help you make a plan for building out your account’s board strategy.
