Pinterest is a great place to grow your blog and e-commerce shop without having to master complicated SEO techniques.
Getting traffic to your blog posts, podcast episodes, videos, products and offer from Pinterest is a great way grow your business.
90% of pinners use Pinterest to tell them what to buy.
That means you have a great opportunity to slide in front of your audience and present your product or service as the transformation that they need.
I know there are a lot of options to gain traffic and sales… there are a lot of experts saying they have the magic solution for you and this may have you totally overwhelmed.
I’m not here promising you magic success on Pinterest but I am laying out the best resources to grow your brand on Pinterest.

Let’s start this list of amazing Pinterest marketing resources off with my free strategy checklist.
I created this strategy checklist in the very beginning of my Pinterest VA journey. In fact, it has morphed a lot over the years but it started out as a way for me to keep track of what I was supposed to be doing for client accounts.
Part of this checklist is also for the client so they can complete specific actions with each of their newly published posts.
This is the only resource out there that is from the client management perspective. Not only do you get my checklist but you also get a calendar and list of trends and content ideas for each month of the year.

I have a YouTube channel where I publish content teaching you how to use Pinterest to market your website. I publish how to’s as well as trainings on using this platform for marketing.
This is a free checklist to get your promoted pins setup. I walk you through how to setup your ads for the first time. I also cover campaign strategy and how to structure your first campaign.
I also include a case study on how I took a clients ads from $5000 in revenue to $14000 in revenue with a couple small tweaks.
This is something I think a lot of people miss out on. I have these pages bookmarked and check them weekly. I even read their nerdy blog on Medium from time to time.
I would check out Pinterest Newsroom for updates on new Pinterest tools and updates with the company.
I would also bookmark and check their insights page from time to time. This is where they publish yearly and monthly trends data.
I completely nerd out on reading about how other companies are using Pinterest to grow their brand. If you want to get advertising inspiration then you should check out their success stories blog.
I love to get my hands on anything directly from Pinterest. While it’s not usually super in depth it usually is a great insight into what you can do to grow your brand using their platform.
This is the only automation tool I would suggest when you are scheduling your pins week to week. Tailwind is also a great resource when it comes to marketing on Pinterest & Instagram.
They work closely with Pinterest to help us to make better marketing decisions using both tools.
Now of course not every resource is going to be free and with good reason. You will learn so much more and be more invested in your business when you invest in yourself.
So let’s dive right in.
This is my Pinterest marketing membership that is designed to help you take your organic Pinterest marketing to the next level. You are sure to learn something in this course even if you have been working on Pinterest for a while.

When you signup you will get the following monthly:
There is so much more inside of the academy that you will get access to as well.
I find that most people don’t get started with Pinterest becuase they don’t know where to start. The overwhelm of creating pins, finding keywords and consistently pinning.
That’s why our Pinterest System is perfect for you if you’re feeling overwhelmed.
Most people don’t need strategy first… they need a system or a workflow to help them stay consistent & to be strategic.
Our system includes trainings for each phase of our exclusive Pinterest strategy.
Here’s what you will learn:
WOO. Holy smokes that was a great list of Pinterest marketing resources and I hope you take a serious look into each item on the list depending on where you are in your learning phase.
