Can you turn Pinterest into a money making business?

How many posts have you read on this? I am sure if you have gotten to this one, it’s quite a few.
2020 was pretty eye-opening for many people when it came to working from home—especially those of us with kids who had also to take on the role of virtual teacher.

Many people had to quit their jobs, or worse, they were laid off.

You see, I started my business nearly 7 years ago when I realized what childcare would cost me if I went back to the corporate world after having babies. The take-home after paying for childcare didn’t make going back into the office worth it, at least for me. My husband is a helicopter pilot in the Navy, and most of the time, he is gone. So him balancing his career and helping with the kids wasn’t really going to pan out either!

And I really wanted to continue to work; after all, I spent 4 years learning all there was to know about Marketing.
Fast forward to 2021, and I have a full client list and two super successful courses. Sadly my business didn’t really take off until year 2, but I know if I had had a more clear end goal, it could have happened a lot sooner.

So, can you turn Pinterest into a money-making business?

Yes. I average around $11K a month from Pinterest, and about $5K of that is from my Pinterest Virtual Assistant business. The rest comes in the form of my course sales and affiliate marketing.

But, it will take work! So this is not a get-rich overnight kind of gig.

What do you know about the Pinterest platform? 

How long have you been pinning on Pinterest? If you have a business of your own or at least a blog, I am sure you have a Pinterest for business account, so you may or may not know how things work.

If you are 150% new to all of this you may still have a personal account that you save recipes and interior design tips to.
Pinterest can be a HUGE traffic driver for businesses, bloggers, and online stores. In fact, a lot of my more prominent named clients’ sole purpose of hiring me is so they can rank on Google by ranking high on Pinterest.

But most use the platform to do just that, get free traffic to their website. While Pinterest is a search engine, it doesn’t take 2-3 years to rank as it can with Google and other search engines. While it still takes time, you can start ranking on or around the 6-month mark if you have been pinning correctly and you have stayed consistent.

Could you help others? 

If you have already been successful with your own Pinterest account and getting traffic to your website, you are one step closer to quickly being able to help others do the same.

Broad knowledge of Pinterest SEO is a massive player in this game. So if this is something you are already caught up on, you are already ahead of the game.

You see, Pinterest is more complicated than most think, and it takes a LOT of work to get traffic and see consistent growth with Pinterest, and a lot of businesses and bloggers don’t have that time to commit, so they outsource.

And that is where you come in.

Let’s say you know nothing about Pinterest but still want to learn, invest in a good course. Learn the ins and outs, and once you are successful with your own business account, you will be ready to help others. Pinterest is becoming more and more popular. 

As the years go on and the platform evolves more and more businesses are realizing what a great platform Pinterest can be. And more and more businesses are realizing they need to hire someone who knows what they are doing to help them be successful. 

The demand for Pinterest Virtual assistants is going up and up as every month goes by. So if you have ever wanted to take the jump and work for yourself, now is the time!

{Side note: I wanted to mention this. Someone posted this in one of my FB groups last week, ” Are there any courses that help you make money? I mean I have taken so many and still nothing.” Remember this: A course is only there to teach you, YOU have to put in the work. No one can do it for you. They can guide you, but ultimately it comes down to how much time and effort you want to put into being successful! Keep that in mind 🙂 

And as always, 

Happy Pinning!
