Pinterest is now my #1 source for website traffic and I'm totally kicking myself for not having focused on Pinterest for business sooner!
For a very long time, I totally resisted the lure of Pinterest for business purposes. To be quite honest, my impression of Pinterest (at least initially), was that is was a cool place to go and find ideas for home decor, recipes, and fashion tips. I eventually signed up for a personal Pinterest page, back when there was a waitlist to get in, but I rarely ever used it.
It wasn't until early 2016 that I even remotely began to understand the power of Pinterest; that it was much more than just a place to gather cool ideas for DIY projects, kid-friendly recipes, and the latest from the world of fashion.
As I dug in deeper and learned more about more about Pinterest, I finally began to see how it could be used strategically to share my content from my blog and reach my target audience of female entrepreneurs. I learned how using Pinterest + Tailwind Automation could help me to organically grow my business and get in front of an audience of women who were actively seeking the type of business-building content I curate.
This epiphany was a long time coming, and I credit much of what I have learned to several Phenomenal Pinterest Mavens that I have found online over the last year or so.
There are certainly a ton of different resources you could tap into to learn about Pinterest. In this post, I'm putting the spotlight on four incredible Pinterest Mavens whose blogs and advice have helped me go from 44 followers to over 1800 followers and nearly triple my blogging pageviews in less than 6 months.
These women are Pinterest Powerhouses as far as I'm concerned, and if you are looking to learn from the best and brightest, then here are the gals you want to connect with.
***Special Note*** If you are trying to get to your first 1000 Pinterest followers, you need a NO FLUFF strategy to implement for fast results. Try Rosemarie's Pinterest Strategy Guide.
I am completely obsessed with Kate's Simple Pin Podcast and her private Facebook group that's all about using Pinterest for business growth. If you are serious about growing your Pinterest presence and you want to learn from someone whose business is all about teaching others Pinterest…well, Kate is your gal!
McKinzie is by far one of the sweetest online bloggers/teachers that I have ever met. Most of all, I admire her because she's a mama who finds time to run multiple businesses and help other business mamas to grow online. I took McKinzie's free Pinterest course last year and loved it! As a result, I ended up paying for her premium Pinterest course. Her resources and training have played a huge role in my Pinterest growth.
Peg is a popular social media speaker and super-Pinterest user. Most note-worthy, she is also the co-author of a best-selling book The Art of Social Media. My first interaction with Peg was as a student in her first Pinterest Marketing 101 course offered on Skillshare. Her course is the resource that first helped me to understand how I was totally under-utilizing the platform.
Rosemarie is a personal finance blogger who simply put–is killing it as an online mompreneur! As a bonus gift for an affiliate marketing course I completed last year, I received access to Rosemarie's Pinterest Strategy Guide which is 3 pages of no BS Pinterest strategies that worked like a charm. Using this tool helped me to get to my first 1000 followers.
