Example "Follow" button.

To add this to your website you will first need to visit this page: http://business.pinterest.com/widget-builder/#do_pin_it_button

Once you have selected the “Follow Button” option on that page you will need to fill in the two fields that appear:

“Pinterest User URL” – This is the URL of your Pinterest account page, found in the white address bar at the top of your browser.

“Full Name” – This is the name of your profile. For example, “Organised Bride”.
