Are you considering improving your Pinterest reach and therefore traffic to your blog? Have you considered taking a course? Here is my review of the course Pinning Perfect.
I invested in the course back in the autumn, finally settling down and taking the course early in the year. Now let me be straight with you – Pinning Perfect will take you time to implement, but WOW it’s a game changer. It’s not cheap but if you are serious about taking your blog to the next level, it is well worth considering.
As a sewing/craft/upcycling blogger Pinterest is a prime audience for potential new readers. Before taking this course my traffic from Pinterest was approximate 4,000/month, five months later my traffic from Pinterest is 11,000/month. I have also invested in Tailwind smart loops so my pinning is now automated following the guidance in this course, allowing me more time to be creative and make new projects to share with yourselves. this is completely optional, the course walks you through how to organize and track your pins without paying for scheduling service.

So why am I sharing this today?
The course costs $249 but on the 27 June it increases by $100, so if you are thinking about purchasing the course now is the time to do so. If $249 is too much (I get it!) then there is a payment plan option, but please only purchase this course if you are dedicated to taking it and implementing it.
I am an affiliate of the course, so should you make a purchase I receive an affiliate percentage, it does not increase the cost to you at all.
Still checking out your options? Be sure to pin this post for later!
