Stop doubting yourself right now!
If I look back on my messages between my bestie back in Feb – I would have never believed I would have reached where I am today. Over 100k page views and growing. (It’s certainly not millions and I’m not claiming to make millions, but sure as hell want to get there one day!)
I would bitch about the fact that I couldn’t crack even 10k page views in 30 days and she was having all this success with viral posts and other awesomeness. I was missable, self doubting and feeling really down on my luck. Well not really luck – I felt I had reached my peak – nowhere to go from here.
So why were page views so important to me? I had been told that I could make extra money blogging. Um Sure. I knew it wasn’t going to happen over night. I got that. But when I divorced, my ex husband left me with a pile of debt that I wasn’t prepared for. And working full time as a single mom, I needed to find something to supplement this to pay that stupid debt off faster. So i thought – Ok – Let me sell something. I sucked at that. But I don’t suck at research, and I don’t suck at teaching.
So I realised I needed to make a change – I did not understand all the things online about SEO – long tail short tail – I need tails? Why had someone not just broken down the basics for me? Why had someone not just said – Ok – Step 1 – don’t be a dick. Step 2 – Let’s put the hard work in…. Etc. I tried some courses – they pretty much summed up what I could read on the interwebs so felt I had failed at finding the right courses.
I then tried something new – and ya know what! It worked. Wanna know what I did? Sure you do! I know you’re curious because who the hell isn’t these days!
SPOILER ALERT! It was pinterest. How do you think you found this course!? 😛
So why Pinterest and Why THIS course?
If like me, you had a pinterest account, filled with pretty rooms, and things, and fashion and a pile of other cool things that really have no impact on your business, then join the club! I got so overly confused and really down in the dumps! Everyone told me that it was the perfect FREE search engine and I needed to get on board. But it wasn’t working for me.
I was already pinning on Pinterest but had no idea about strategy or plans going forward. None of my pinning was leading to traffic to my site. I then learnt about boardbooster and with a bit pf practice and help from a good friend I finally started getting a small amount of pageviews – RIP board booster.
Board booster died a miserable death and I ended up having to teach myself a new platform and a new system and new strategy. No Traffic.
So what changed? Like a light bulb – it clicked. I realised that I was looking at a series of opportunities that I needed to work out. So I did.
Ready to Get Started
Of course you are!
Ok! Maybe you aren’t ready yet! So let me talk you through the reasons you should sign up!
In this 5 part course I will guide you, step-by-step, through the process of setting up your pinterest for success, how to master tailwind and grow that traffic to your site! The first step however is to stop thinking of Pinterst as a super fun place to look at cure pictures and see it as a powerful FREE search engine.
You could focus on Facebook – where engagement has dropped – or Instagram where they are constantly changing the algorithm.
So if that’s you – all good – but if you want to level up – then stick around!
There are literally people around the world whose job it is to manage peoples Pinterest accounts. (PS. I ain’t got time to manage your Pinterest account – But I can show you how to manage your own!)
Now are you ready?
Of course you are!
So what EXACTLY will I learn?
Great question! You are investing money into this – so you need to know the details!
Part 1: The Set Up
We’re going to start off with some homework – you will get a printable (and a series more during this class!) that you will need to print and tick of. Together we will set up your Pinterest for success. How? We will craft your profile, set up some amazing board covers (did I mention you get some awesome board cover templates as part of this?)
Together we will walk through the steps of setting up your business account – how to read the analytics that come through and what this means for your business.
In this module we will also cover setting up rich pins on your website and some other cool html hacks that will help you later down the line! All this means is that we have set you up to start from an amazing point right off the bat!
Part 2: The brand you want to portray
This might not seem important but how are you actually going to win people over? How are you going to draw them to your site if you’re not creating clickable content? Amazing Pins? How?
MORE Homework! Here you will define your brand and set up some templates. Ill provide you with some templates but you will need to customise it with your brand colors and content.
We will then have a think about what you want to achieve and who you want to reach. Who is your target audience and why should they click?
Part 3: Content Creation and getting ready to pin!
This might seem obvious, but we will go through some SEO tips, create a couple of posts to share and the Pinterest Collateral to go with it. This can be time consuming – so lucky for you the course is paced at YOUR pace. You can speed through it or take your time.
We’ll analyse your analytics and see what worked in the past and what could work going forward. We will cover off the really good juicy saucy stuff that makes Pinterst a powerhouse of traffic to your site.
Part 4: The Strategy Session
We have now created all the parts you need to have a successful strategy.Ill walk you through whats worked for me and how I got to this point here today! We will then directly work on YOUR strategy. Again you’ll have some home work. We will cover off optimal pinning times, where to pin, what to pin and all the really good stuff! We will also cover scheduling and looping and how to take the pressure off yourself spending hours on pinterest!
Part 5: The Bonuses!
Seriously – How can I woo you without amazing bonuses to make this oh so sweet?
So what’s on offer? Approximately $350 worth of content as well as….

How could you not be?
Ummm Lady – Why should I trust you!?
Another Brilliant question!
Well you are still here, which means you are considering using me as a teacher! YUSSSS (insert fist pump!)
I studied an MBA focusing on Marketing and Sustainability – Then this year I studied a Diploma in Creativity, specialising in social media.
Well. 1. My Pinterest page currently fluctuates between 1-6 million monthly views – yes you read that right – MILLION! VIEWS! (Yeah – don’t be shy – go stalk my page here!)
We will talk about how this translates to physical page views. Again – this is the No Bullshit course – I’m not going to lie to you and I’m sure as hell not going to sell you something that I don’t believe in.
No Bullshit – its the only way to be right?
Have some questions?
Why not email me? I’m around and I’m a real person email@example.com

This course is designed to help you long term, not just over night.
But I don’t have any product or posts? I’m barely set up online
Oh babe! This means its the perfect time! Set yourself up for that amazing launch!
