Ever wondered how to embed your Pinterest profile to your WordPress website? It’s always important to have options for your customers to follow you. Since women use Pinterest at much higher rates than men, Pinterest is a great social media platform to engage with that audience.

So let’s get started. Here you will find steps on how to embed your Pinterest profile to your WordPress website.
