The other reason that you should read this guide is that you may not know:

I will go through Pinterest SEO basics, and I will also explain how to use Pinterest for business and blog/website.

In this “How to use Pinterest” guide, you will learn:
How can you work smart? Without feeling like you have to spend all day every day on Pinterest.
Why can you target super competitive keywords on Pinterest? And get tremendous traffic even with a new website.
What are the main elements of an ideally SEO optimized pin for Pinterest?
How to create such pin images that will generate a ton of traffic to your site?
How to leverage seasonal and holiday traffic spikes on Pinterest to maximize your income?
We’re going to cover all of the questions mentioned above in this comprehensive Pinterest SEO guide.
Now let’s talk about why Pinterest is essential for your business and website?
First, Pinterest drives traffic and clients for your business/website 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Second, it’s free.
Third, Pinterest is the third-largest search engine in the united states.
Fourth, Pinterest has over 320 million users worldwide, of which about 30% users are from the United States.
Fifth, 30% of all United States social media users are on Pinterest.
Sixth, half of Pinterest users earn $50,000 or greater per year, while 10% of the households are making greater than $125,000 per year.
Seventh, 93% of active pinners said they used Pinterest to plan for purchases, and 87% said they had purchased something because of Pinterest.
Eighth, Pins can drive viral traffic for your business/website and revive it even years later.
Ninth, famous search engines like Google love Pinterest. Google shows pins as results for many keywords. Therefore, the right pin can drive your traffic from Pinterest and also from Google.
Why should you learn Pinterest marketing?
Now let me tell you a few more reasons why you should be learning how to use Pinterest for marketing.
First, if not many people in your niche have a strong presence on Pinterest, you have an excellent chance to be the first one and keep this position for a more extended period.
Second, the reason might be that not many people know yet about the traffic generation potential of Pinterest.
I’m still getting complete surprises when I find businesses, brands, e-commerce sites, and even bloggers with many followers on Instagram or YouTube and have no presence on Pinterest.
They might be missing the best traffic-generating opportunity. I know such websites with massive Google SEO traffic, but they are not much active on Pinterest.
They’re ignoring a platform that could bring them an extra 50% traffic on top of what they already get from Google.
Finally, if you don’t get on Pinterest now, your competitors will take charge of the Pinterest audience, potentially yours!
Guys, trust me, I’m sharing my firsthand knowledge with you who dream of changing their lives and starting making money online.
I run a couple of websites, and I share my Pinterest tips online. Starting a website as a side hustle and then turning it into a full-time business changed my life.
I changed many things for my family in general about two years into this journey; I convinced my spouse to leave the nine-to-five job and focus all our efforts on growing this online business.
We never regretted this decision. We live in a nice place, and we have 300 sunny days a year, and we have this cute little pup called Yoshi.
So let me give you a little snapshot of how my journey looks so far. I started back in February of 2017, and it wasn’t an overnight success.
In the second month, I was able to make about 70 dollars.
After the six month blogging, I was able to make 850 dollars.
At the end of my first year working on my site, I finally quit my day job.
I mainly rely on ads on my sites on affiliate marketing, but I’m also selling my products.
Now enough about me, let’s get back to your struggles!
This Pinterest SEO guide is about you, and I understand you are reading it because you need to figure out a way to get free traffic to your website/business.
And you may have heard that Pinterest can help you do this fast. So let me guess, you are so much worried about getting traffic.
Because you’ve been trying every free traffic generation method for months, if not years, and you’re still there, unable to get traffic big enough to replace your full-time job.
I felt this way for many months after I started my website.
At first, I was full of enthusiasm. I used to publish new posts two or three times a week. I was working on making my site more pretty and optimized for Google SEO.
I created a Facebook page, an Instagram account, a Twitter account, and a Google Plus account (yea, it’s obsolete now).
Well, I wanted to do it all at once, and I thought I was doing a great job by sharing all my new content across so many social media platforms.
I thought, well I put so much effort into it I just need to wait a little bit and Google will index my site, and social media following will start growing.
In the first three months of my blogging, I was doing a lot to get traffic but nothing seemed to be working.
I got worried and asked myself that why traffic is growing slowly? In the initial, three or four months and why was it so hard and slow. You tell me, you probably know exactly why Google is too hard. Facebook and Instagram are useless for traffic unless you have a big ad budget. Am I right?
I realized that Google SEO mostly takes around 6 to 12 months to let your site get out of the so-called Google Sandbox. A place, where Google keeps all the new websites!
Just think, how long it took me to start getting any noticeable traffic from Google. It took me over a year and it’s still not something impressive compared to my Pinterest traffic volume.
As I have told you that about 80% of all my traffic to my blogs comes from Pinterest. Did I?
Pinterest is so easy for any new website to compete with older accounts on Pinterest that have thousands of followers.
I run three sites by now and I’m confident to say:
“A new domain with a brand new Pinterest account and less than 500 followers has the same chances to get huge traffic from Pinterest as a website that is 5 years old and has 20 000 followers.”
It all comes to the strategy and not to followers or the main authority or to the age of your website you might be thinking.
You may think, probably I was just lucky! But that’s not only me. I was genuinely interested in seeing more people who are very successful with Pinterest traffic and who did it in the first three or six months.
Do you know Mediavine premium ad management company? They pay at least five times more for the same amount of traffic than Google Adsense.
Joining Mediavine is the main goal for most beginners. Mediavine used to have a 25,000 monthly sessions requirement to join the network they changed this minimum to 50,000 monthly sessions, in the mid of 2020.
I went to a popular Facebook group for bloggers and made a quick survey to find out how many websites reached the 25,000 monthly sessions benchmark, which was Mediavine’s requirement at that time.
To my surprise, in just about a day I’ve got 20 responses from website owners who reached this amount of traffic from Pinterest within three to six months.
Only Mediavine pays on average of at least $10 for a thousand visitors on your site. And in the worst months, I think on average most of the sites are getting paid about 20 dollars for a thousand sessions.
If you want to see the full list of the websites their niches and how much traffic they reached and how much time it took them then send me text in the comment box beneath this Pinterest SEO guide so that I can tell you where you can get this pdf file.
If you are spending time reading this “How to use Pinterest for business?” Pinterest SEO guide that’s because you want to get serious about your online business or blog.
Trust me, once you will start focusing on driving Pinterest traffic you give yourself a promise I’m getting it done it’s like you’re telling yourself I’m not going to give up on my dreams.
I’m going to succeed online and I don’t need a big investment to make it work. I’m going to grow Pinterest traffic as the foundation for my blog or any other type of online business.
That means to say this is not a hobby anymore and you’re giving yourself a promise I will learn how Pinterest works? I will focus fully on driving traffic to my website because more visitors equals more ad revenue or more product sales more online income. I will make more money online and I will quit my day job or stop doing other side hustles that don’t make me happy.
Now if you’ve been multitasking on multiple traffic generation platforms and not quite focusing on this Pinterest SEO guide, then hey, listen, no other platform allows you to start driving traffic to your website faster and easier than Pinterest.
I bet because this is what I have tried and tested on several sites of my own and my fellas.
I have seen it working on multiple other examples in the industry and here is what’s interesting as Pinterest traffic grew over time so did my revenue.
The increase in my income growth is entirely based on my Pinterest traffic strategy.
I want you to pay attention!
Now let’s move to the first thing that I think you should take with you from this Pinterest guide, it’s very important so I decided to start with it what is the only up-to-date strategy that works on Pinterest this year and how you can follow it without feeling like you have to spend all day every day on Pinterest.
The newest information Pinterest shared about the best practices for marketing on their platform is that:
We should create a lot of fresh pins. What does that mean?
Do we have to create new pins every day?
No! We don’t! Then what is the solution? First is creating multiple pin versions for each page on your website to make sure that we keep offering fresh content to Pinterest without having to create new pages on the site itself.
Because that would be exhaustive this is an example provided by Tailwind and Tailwind is the official Pinterest partner.
Tailwind is the scheduler that is focused on Pinterest and works with the Pinterest team very closely to ensure that all the settings inside the tool and recommendations they give to the users of the platform are in line with the best Pinterest practices and spam policies.
So you can see here that all these images are essentially about the same thing but in every image, we get a different perspective either the position of the photo is changed or in some photos, one object goes to the foreground, and on the others, we get a wide picture of the room and the text overlay is also slightly changed from one pin to another
If you create all these five-pin versions in one session you can schedule pins from this page for about two months in advance.
How is it possible? Do five-pin versions mean that we only have five pins this way?
No, it doesn’t! Because on Pinterest according to the best new practices we can save the same pin to up to 10 relevant boards.
Pinterest also recommends saving each combination of a pin image and page URL with at least a two-day interval, before it gets saved to the next relevant board.
You can do this manually using the Pinterest native scheduler. But I honestly find it too time-consuming you would have to upload the pin image 50 times and set the pin titles, the links, the descriptions, and the date of publication for each image manually.
This is where Tailwind comes into play. You can do it in the Tailwind scheduler in just a couple of clicks one click is to say that you want to save this pin with two-day intervals and the other click is to select the list of boards relevant to your pin.
I’ll create another guide about how to schedule pins in Tailwind, in near future. Because it will be another detailed discussion that covers all the settings and pinning tactics with the tailwind scheduler.
I’ll also talk about it a little later in this guide, as we go along.
How To Easily Target Super Competitive Keywords in Pinterest?
Let’s move on to the next thing that I promised that you will learn today let me tell you why you can target super competitive keywords on Pinterest and get traffic from them even with a very new website.
How to do Pinterest Keyword Research?
First, we will discuss Pinterest Keyword Research.
Is it similar to Google? No, it’s easier than Google.
Go to Pinterest search and search for anything while you do this Pinterest will make some keyword suggestions and these additional words which showed up here (see the above image) are the most popular keywords.
Users on Pinterest are also looking for the more popular keywords, which are on the left side.
I consider Pinterest SEO much easier for beginners than Google SEO in both understanding and implementation.
I think so for two reasons, first like I said you can target popular keywords from day one and you don’t need to dive deep into keyword research looking for long-tail keywords with low competition like you would do for Google.
That’s because 80% of the Pinterest traffic comes from mobile devices and typing long-tail phrases is just not convenient for mobile users.
Users are normally searching for short keyword phrases. You just type in a word and Pinterest instantly shows you a list of additional keywords in those colorful fancy boxes (see image).
Pick one of them and since Pinterest is already loading a ton of attractive images then users will typically not refine the search with additional words.
They will just start browsing through this feed and checking what Pinterest has to show and based on Pinterest official stats,
“75 percent of all searches on Pinterest are just one to three words.:
“And people scroll down on average to 60 results.”
Therefore, you don’t have to worry about being in the top one or top 10 results or even in the top 20 search results on Pinterest.
As long as your pin stands out, people will click through, even if they need to scroll down three times before they see your pin.
I will tell you later in this Pinterest guide, “What makes your pin design click-worthy?”
Stay tuned and continue to read! If you are getting bored, then make some coffee and then continue to read, because it’s important for your blogging carrier.
The second reason why I think Pinterest SEO is easier to implement is that you don’t need to have a five-year-old website with high domain authority to compete for free organic and viral traffic on Pinterest.
Now we know that not only from my experience but also from the new best practices announced by Pinterest, that Pinterest loves new content, new pins, new web pages, and brand new websites.
What is an SEO optimized Pin for Pinterest?
Now let’s move on to the next thing that I said. That I will show you what are the main elements of an ideally SEO optimized pin for Pinterest.
Even though I insist that Pinterest SEO is easier than Google SEO, it doesn’t mean that you can just upload an image with a link to your site and hope that Pinterest will figure out on its own, what the pin is about and will start driving traffic to your business/website.
You still need to know that which parts of the pin you need to optimize.
Let me help you here (see image). Here is the anatomy of a healthy keyword-rich pin.
By the way, do you have your workbooks next to you? I had told you don’t forget to keep your workbook handy or you can open the notepad on your computer.
So, now you know that where you should include your keywords inside your pin. (see the above image)
Well, these are the three most important signals for Pinterest. There are other factors as well, but initially, if you optimize for these three, will be good enough to rank your pins on Pinterest.
For now, if you just add these targeted keywords into these textual descriptions of your pin it will be a huge step forward to success on Pinterest.
How do I add rich pins to Pinterest?
If you don’t know what is a rich pin there are several types of them including product pins, recipe pins, and article pins. But I’m simply for now going to talk about this particular pin that you’re looking at this one (see the image) is called article rich pin.
“The purpose of a rich pin is to bring additional information to Pinterest from your web page.”
This information includes two things that Pinterest extracts from the page:
1- Page SEO Title
2- Page SEO Description
If your rich pins work correctly on your webpage, then Pinterest will pull the pin title from your page as your title field and your page’s SEO description will be pulled as pin’s description.
If the rich pins don’t work correctly on your site your pins will have no title but you can still edit them and add the pin title and description, inside the Pinterest platform.
You can also do this in the Tailwind scheduler.
Once your pin is saved on Pinterest, you can still edit the title and description later, if required.
How to create a pin on Pinterest? That Generate Tons Of Traffic
Now we’re moving to the next section of this Pinterest SEO Guide.
It’s about how to craft pin images that will generate a ton of traffic to your website/business, and not just saves and impressions on Pinterest. (saves and the impressions are Pinterest terms, used in their stats)
First, you need to know the Pinterest rules and stats.
About 80% of Pinterest users are on mobile devices, and that dictates the ideal image width and height ratio for the rich pin.
Rich Pin images must be vertical. There is a recommended image size of 1000 by 1500 pixels, this is a 2:3 ratio for Pinterest images.
You have to make sure that your image has a great resolution on any device that’s why it’s not recommended to make images smaller than Pinterest’s recommended pin image size.
Another thing that you need to understand is that you do not have to keep all your images strictly within this image ratio of two to three (2:3).
Your pins can be even longer up to one to two (1:2) ratio (1000×2000 pixels). But why I’m saying this? Why can’t use any custom ratio?
Well, the reason is that Pinterest will start to cut off the longer images and reducing their distribution.
Pinterest implemented it a few years ago. Because people were used to creating infographics at that time and other super tall pins that would take space of about three or five regular-sized pins in the Pinterest feed.
Pinterest had to do something to stop this manipulation and you know everything changes so fast so you have to be always on top of the algorithm changes. That’s crucial on all platforms and Pinterest is no exception here.
How to leverage seasonal and holiday traffic on Pinterest?
The other thing that I promised to teach you today is how to leverage seasonal and holiday traffic spikes on Pinterest to maximize your income.
Do you know that what is the one thing that 99% of Pinterest marketers do wrong? Well, it’s publishing seasonal or holiday-related content right on time of the event.
Kind of how you would do it on Facebook or Instagram for example as a search engine Pinterest needs time to index your content, to understand the keywords, the context of your new pins, and to start ranking them.
Pinterest is a platform with high seasonal and trend related fluctuations Pinterest recommends saving seasonal and holiday related pins about four to six weeks in advance to give the platform enough time to pick up data about your new pins and to start ranking them for relevant keywords Pinterest traffic is usually getting higher during the holiday season but only if you prepared your blog for your website for this and if you posted some holiday related content and some pins in advance that’s even more exciting when sometimes your old holiday posts can suddenly get a new life and bring you much more traffic than you’ve got even in the first year look at my traffic comparison for a blog post about halloween I didn’t have to update anything in this post itself I just created a few new pin images and saved them to relevant boards about four to six weeks in advance and it was just about 10 minutes works and that’s how it worked again for me driving me traffic this year compared to the last year that’s the beauty of Pinterest now let me give you a quick but important guide that will help you make your images stand out on Pinterest are based on my experience and on a research by curolate based on the analysis of 30 different visual characteristics with an impressive sample of 500 000 pins I will not talk about all the details of that study but I will just show you the most important takeaways in regards to pin design two dark images receive 20 times less repeats than images with medium lightness now about the colors your image should include at least a few vibrant colors it could be yellow pink or red anything like that so images with red orange and pink tones get on average twice more pins than images with blue tones then it’s about quality well no need to comment on this much you understand that images of high resolution look better obviously they get more pins that was based on the research of curalade but I wanted to add something I learned since i’ve started marketing on Pinterest first do not use script fonts in your text overlay or any fonts actually that are difficult to read when users scroll down the feed on Pinterest you have less than a second to grab their attention if all your text overlay is hard to read users will not have the time to understand what your pin is about and probably their eye will be caught by another competitor’s pin who made it easier for users to read and to understand what the pin is about and then don’t get carried away adding too much text overlay because this will force you to use smaller font size so always remember that the majority of users will look at your pin on mobile devices test your pins and be honest with yourself can you read the text on a small screen we’re so lucky that today simple drag-and-drop online tools like canva exist and these are free tools by the way. Therefore there is no need to learn photoshop or take another course to become a professional graphic designer if you make your own photos for your website you can even use them as pins or as a background for your pins with text overlays but if you don’t make photos there are plenty of free and also not so expensive stock photo sites you can use those images as background and all you have to do is add a text overlay it’s not that difficult to create a pin in a tool like canva trust me I have a 15 minute video tutorial on canva in my course and you will practice for a while I promise in a week of creating pins you will become like a pro a new pin cannot take longer than 10 minutes I will tell you later in this Pinterest SEO Guide how you can get a pack of pin templates made in canva completely customizable and each one of them is using a different style so you can use and reuse them in your future pins by just changing the background and the text overlay so here is the deal if you’re watching this Pinterest SEO Guide because you want to build the momentum in your blogging journey or in your online base and you really can’t wait years to see any results or any traffic that comes from google to your site Pinterest can give you those viral traffic spikes it can help you with a completely new website and it will start building an audience virtually from day one or if you want to feel confident about what you’re doing because I know how it feels when you do a lot of work on your content you send it out there to the world and no one even knows your website exists if you want to feel more secure in your business because that’s what a new traffic source gives you especially when it’s a source of free traffic if you want scalability because you can replicate your success with one pin or post on Pinterest once you nail down your strategy you want your blog or business to be profitable you need a constant influx of new audience no matter how you monetize your site first get the audience and then you’ll figure out how to make money with it your smart sales funnels will not generate profits on the exit if there is no one entering your funnels if you’re looking for a life-changing know-how you want to finally say I’m living this nine-to-five job or I’m buying this house I always dreamed about Pinterest traffic can bring you this change a lot faster than any other platform if you’re saying yes to all of these I get you I was in the same place when I started making money online and I had no idea which way to go everything was so important google followers on Facebook Facebook so many online money making gurus I tried it all and sadly I only started seeing improvements in my online income when I took a decision to put all of that on hold and focus on Pinterest traffic in the first six months blogging I allowed myself being pulled in all directions I felt lost and almost ready to give up because in spite of a lot of effort there was nothing I could consider a tangible result I had a ridiculously low traffic growth and of course close to no income at all when people asked me so how’s your blog is it a hobby or are you making any money with it I always prefer to say that it was just a hobby because heck there was no money made at that time from my blog but then I looked around and realized that all the successful bloggers I know had a solid Pinterest presence so I told myself well i’ll get to google seo later I will test some ads on Facebook and I will probably work on on a youtube channel which I’m doing now but it’s two years later than I started the blog I decided now I will master one thing Pinterest and you know what i’ve seen almost immediate results as soon as I started working on my Pinterest marketing strategically so my my goal for you is that if anyone asks you about your blog or online business how is it going you don’t have to lie you don’t have to say that it’s just a hobby for you you can confidently reply that you have an audience and you have a stable growth and a lot of plans for the future of your online journey and to get you there I want to invite you to my Pinterest seo traffic secrets program now Pinterest seo traffic secrets is a step-by-step strategy of attracting targeted visitors to your site for free every day with no ad budget with work and with effort but with visible and rapid results and without tech overwhelm without a guessing game or frustration about the contradictory outdated Pinterest tips which you probably have seen in abundance so far online one of the things I’m known for is not leaving my students alone in their learning journey I’m personally present in the private Facebook group every single day and it’s not a virtual assistant here is one of my students Carla she blogs at mom secrets she is a primary school teacher and she started her blog in 2018 and she had no clue how to get traffic to her recipes her site was brand new and her Pinterest account had no followers.
When she joined my program so in less than one year she emailed me with this screenshot and she shared her win her blog was accepted to mediavine ad network which means a lot for bloggers who heavily rely on ad income income i already told you that Mediavine pays about three to five times better than Google Adsense Carla sent me this lovely email the day she started getting traffic viral traffic with over 25 users on her blog in real time stats in Google Analytics and by now Carla told me that her site generates over 68 000 monthly page views when you can start making consistent ad income from your website you get the confidence in your future you can then keep working on more content while starting to think about additional ways to make money with your site let’s take carl as an example she has lots of healthy yet easy and quick recipes for busy moms i believe that when her blog starts bringing consistent ad income she will also start thinking of more serious ways of making money not just with ads but so she can invest some time into her own product maybe a meal plan or an ebook but she could only move to this next step when she earned that confidence and the safety feeling that comes with daily influx of free traffic from pinterest carla was a brand new blogger when she took my course but i also have seasoned bloggers who had a solid traffic from other platforms and after taking my course pinterest became a second most powerful traffic generator for them after their main platform for some of them it was google for others it was facebook or instagram this is

your own but definitely you will be making many mistakes, which will slow down your growth and in the worst case scenario you can even get your account suspended because you don’t know what you don’t know about pinterest and there are all these small things you’d never think about which can trigger spam filters and get your account in trouble the second option is to learn from somebody else the problem is that you will find a lot of pinterest educators who don’t make money with pinterest traffic i’m sure you’ve seen courses like this so just be careful there because some of them might have big names crazy numbers in income reports but if you do just a little of investigation you will find out that most of their traffic is paid ads or that they have a blog an old blog with a strong domain authority so they get a lot of google seo traffic they might have had some success on pinterest in the past but they are no longer active on this platform and they can only teach you what they used to do and what used to work years ago well and the third option is to learn from an expert who actively works on growing three accounts on her own and helps dozens of students and coaches clients who grow their pinterest presence right now starting from zero and to the most ambitious goals that you can set for yourself now let’s just think about this course as your investment in yourself how fast you will get back your investment if you’re looking for a course that will help you to become a pinterest marketing manager for clients so that you can work as a virtual assistant for other people and help them grow their business you can back the money you pay for this course as soon as you get the very first client can you imagine that now if you are an online business owner you tell me how many clients you need to cover the price of the course one client 0.4 clients it all depends of course on how you make money with your website but even if the only way you monetize your site is through ads with companies like mediavine or at thrive for example then you can get back your investment from basically from the very first month since you applied and and get accepted to one of these platforms i looked at my google analytics for anastasiablogger.com and i found that since the blog was started in february 2017 this is a crazy number it sounds huge for someone who was getting 10 to 12 visits per day about just three years ago and i was clueless about the way this whole blogging adventure will turn out funny enough when i started my blog my hopes were not too high because i was thinking the same exact thing that any beginner is thinking it’s too late there is too much competition the market is saturated i will never succeed with my small following numbers it’s written by following pages are not the most important part of your success i didn’t forget about the pdf file that i promised you at the beginning of this class so it was a list of 20 bloggers who managed to reach over 25 000 monthly sessions in just a few months with pinterest traffic you will find the link to this pdf if you look carefully under this video and i have there a link to the workbook for this class and also the link to this pdf file but if you still cannot see the link there just text me in the message box and i will send you this file by email now i’m about to start answering your questions but before that i just wanted to quickly remind you what are the fast action bonuses that will expire by the end of this call today it’s my pinterest trends content marketing plan for this year and a special bonus training from my friend jesse on a journey about how to work with brands and how to make money with sponsorships this training is worth a hundred and fifty dollars so if you join my course in the next 15 minutes you will get access to both of these exclusive bonuses now let’s get to your questions let me just start this timer here and i’d love to answer all of your questions but there are just too many of them so i’ll pick the ones that will be the most valuable for everyone on this call but if your question wasn’t answered because of the time limitations please don’t hesitate and send me your question in the message message box next to the video and i will get back to you within 24 hours by mail one of the questions that i see is asked quite often is whether you will need to make any other investments to implement what my course teaches luckily pinterest is a platform where you can market your content for free and if some tools that i recommend in the course can help you do this faster they’re still optional you can save a lot of time if you use tailwind for for scheduling pins for example but you can also do most of the stuff manually on pinterest especially when you’re just starting and you don’t have much content to promote anyway and i have a special deal with tailwind which gives you two months for free it’s a bonus worth of three thirty dollars and for using this tool which works if you are a new user and you can follow my link to register entailment for this and there is nothing else you will absolutely have to purchase beyond the course amanda is asking i’m just starting a blog i have just two blog posts so far and is your course good for me at this point good question amanda i want you to understand that my course will help you to start getting traffic much faster and chances are that it can also help you define which kind of topic you want to cover on the website and beginners are often struggling with the choice of niche or the topic for their website and i will show you in the course how to skip this painful decision phase and instead start working on content which will actually make you money online and which will actually drive you a lot of traffic from pinterest and i’d like to take an opportunity and answer the other question i also get pretty often from people who already have been running a website for a while and maybe even know some basics about pinterest so is this a beginner level pinterest course no it’s not i designed this course in a way that gets any student from a beginner to an advanced level if you have a pinterest account up and running you can probably skip the first couple of lessons but the rest of the course will help you move to the next level of pinterest traffic and just before i answer the next question we have what about 12 minutes left until the fast actions action bonuses will expire so i just want to remind you that you get access to pinterest seo traffic secrets program to a private community where you get direct access to me and i answer your questions every day and you can get two months free of tailwind if you are a new client of the scheduler and graphic templates in photoshop and 20 templates in canva that’s if you join the standard course program but if you join the advanced package you will also get an account pinterest account audit and one-on-one coaching call with me and now the fast action bonuses that are about to expire it’s um the jessie’s workshop that will teach you how to make money with sponsorships even if you’re a beginner blogger and also my pinterest trends planner for this year now helen is asking whether this course will help her get website traffic or monetize her website okay so let me clarify here from my course you will learn how to drive traffic to your website and how to attract the audience which gives you the foundation for monetization so no traffic no monetization obviously right but monetization strategies are just not the topic of my course i i wrote a lot of blog posts on my site about monetization and i have videos on youtube um that talk about my detailed income reports and these materials are free for you to use and you can find from them how i monetize my pinterest traffic on my website plus if you join the course within the next uh what is it about 10 minutes left you will get access to jesse’s training on blog monetizations through sponsorships so i hope that helps you as well now jessica asks me if pinterest can help her if she has an e-commerce site and she’s not a blogger well jessica i want to tell you that many e-commerce stores especially in fashion print on demand home decor get traffic and sales from pinterest in my course i have a module that shows specific tips for e-commerce sites that will help you create efficient pins even if you don’t plan to attach any blog or content section to your store because the principles of pinterest seo are the same for any type of website be it a blog or an e-commerce store or just a site for a service provider so for any website you will need to create boards on pinterest and add keywords to your board titles to your board descriptions and the keyword research process is essentially the same for you what is popular on pinterest what is popular on google and what makes sense for your niche for your products those are your focus keywords and then you upload pin images linked to your products or categories on your ecommerce site and you add keywords to pin titles to pin descriptions well there is a lot of potential to summarize a lot of potential for growing your traffic and sales with organic free pinterest traffic if you have an e-commerce website so join the course you’ll not regret it now andy is asking if this pinterest course is only targeting female female bloggers that’s a funny question i don’t know why you’ve got this impression to be honest well first the course is not only for bloggers i just talked about e-commerce site as well and i have a lot of students in the program already now that have e-commerce sites or people who sell their other services online and want to get some organic traffic from pinterest maybe maybe you’re a bit confused because the majority of pinterest audience is women that’s that’s true about 70 of pinterest users are women and that means that you as a website owner need to keep in mind that you will get better traction with content and products that target female audience on pinterest but you you yourself don’t have to be a woman to take my course you just need to tailor your content and your offer and your products for women to be successful on pinterest now ap is asking how many times per day i should pin to be successful and to be sure that pinterest doesn’t suspend my account for spam that’s a tricky question to answer because it all depends on how much content you can produce for pinterest look if you are able to publish 10 new posts today which is a lot obviously it’s a lot you can absolutely safely save about 10 different pins because each pin will be linked to a different page on your site and if you have some old posts on on your site and you want to update pin images for them you can easily get to a much higher number like 25 pins a day just from your own site and my course was updated by by the way for the new best practices recommended by pinterest for this year and it also talks i i talked there about the duplicate pins about interval pinning and how to use tailwind scheduler without doing anything spammy so you’re you’re in good hands here because i always update the course very very frequently i’m not waiting um for the middle of the year to update it uh once uh if there is something urgent that i need to update i do this right away now brooke is asking do you recommend joining group boards or using tailwind tribes to promote pins well that’s a great question because you will find a lot of mixed recommendations regarding group boards on pinterest and that’s because in about in the middle of 2018 pinterest representatives talked at several events and they said that group words were not meant to be used for massive content promotion which is the main way that group boards were used by a lot of bloggers and website owners in the past so pinterest decided that crew boards went to a different direction from what they wanted them to be and now pinterest will be reduce the number of pins saved in each group boards.
By the way, have you seen those group boards that have many contributors? I am sure you have! Because those are the contributors that it’s the easiest to get accepted to them.
Now about a thousand contributors or two thousand contributors and no bidding limits no specific niche I believe that this cannot end up in an ideal way.
Because spam will eventually acquire these boards and these boards will start losing their focus on one specific niche topic.
So they’re spammy and they’re not helping your account and as a result, even the genuine pinners will get low engagement scores on those boards for the pins.
And they’ll get context-based confusing keyword on all pins (the spam) that is saved to those boards previously.
The Pinterest representatives have explained that you should use the group boards only for small projects and small collaborations.
That means that each group board has to be focused on a single topic or one keyword, just like any standard board.
Apart from that, you should not include many of the contributors.
Therefore, when you see thousands of contributors in a single group board, don’t even join those group boards.
What does it mean for you you will need to still join group words but i would say that ten percent of your efforts are spent on uh joining group boards is more than enough the rest of the time when you work on your pinterest account you better spend this time about 90 of your time on creating your own boards that’s going to help you grow faster now if you already joined many group boards in the past you need to understand how to evaluate your group words and decide which of them are useful and which are maybe hurting your account and this obviously requires another level of detail and i would recommend you just to join the course and check out the video lessons where i share how you can evaluate your group boards now tailwind tribes you also asked about them so they’re a great way to get as many eyeballs on your pins as possible especially when your pins are new which is really important for a beginner on pinterest and tribes are better than group boards in one way just it’s just one way but there are many other ways but this way is that tailwind tracks reciprocation and tribes so all the members can see how much they saved to the tribe versus how many times they repent something from tribes and also admins of tribes can see this as well so they can make sure that everyone in the tribe is doing their fair share of reciprocation so again if you ask me what is better group words or tribe tribes i use both for group boards i’m more selective than i used to be a couple of years ago because i left a bunch of group boards after evaluating them carefully and i will show you in the course how i do this and of course i’m using taiwan tribes as well cat is asking if it’s necessary to create content to drive traffic from pinterest oh yes it’s very important as on any other platform you have to create content and you cannot just get an audience anywhere if you don’t have content to show to your audience but good news is that for pinterest a new piece of content is just a new pin actually it’s just a new image so you don’t even need to create new web pages and new posts um on your site every day to make pinterest happy it’s often good to just create a new pin for your old page and revive traffic to the old pages i would say that when you have a new page on your site at least once a week it’s already good to start but make sure that you create at least five different pin versions for each page so you can upload them on pinterest over time or use tailwind to schedule them with intervals and you can also go back to your older content and update pins when you see the traffic to those older pages is declining okay now i think that our time is really almost up so i just want to remind you that if you want to take advantage of all the time sensitive bonuses then don’t lose your chance and click the button to enroll in the program and if you could do this in the next few minutes i will also send you right away some extra special bonuses that include the training from jesse it’s a training that will help you make money with sponsored content on your site and i’m also thankful for for you to be with me until the very end of this class and i’m happy for you because i see that you are serious about your pinterest strategy and for me pinterest traffic changed everything i don’t know if i would be even talking to you today or probably sitting at my nine to five job and feeling unfulfilled in life now i have a consistent source of traffic i have a stable online income i can think of the next level channel challenges for myself but i could only move to all of them after i mastered the core element of any online business or blog it’s how to generate traffic to your site and i want you to remember that until you sell solve the traffic problem any other efforts on your website will hardly matter because a pretty design a small landing page an email sales funnel and everything else it will not matter if you don’t have visitors on your site first you need to know how to bring people to see all of what you’ve done for them on your site and to bring the people the fastest and the proven way is pinterest.
So, I hope you enjoyed this free class, and I hope to see you inside my Pinterest SEO traffic secrets course soon. Good luck!
