How To Use Pinterest To Promote Your Blog

How to use Pinterest to promote your blog

If you want to be successful on Pinterest, the first thing you need to understand is that Pinterest is a search engine and should be treated as such. A search engine with a human component.

No, Pinterest is not a social platform like Facebook and Instagram.

This is a huge mistake that many people make when setting out on their Pinterest journey.

Not using Pinterest as a search engine will make things very difficult for you to succeed on their platform.

Google is the largest search engine in the world and has been for quite some time. When you “Google” something for information, you will be given the results for your query.

Google does an amazing job in determining user search intent and will show you the best results for you based
on what you are searching for.

Well, Pinterest does the same thing. If you want to learn how to use Pinterest to promote your blog, keep reading.

The Pinterest algorithm is changing all the time, just like Google. I believe in 2019, learning to adapt to these changes will be more important than ever.

The next thing you need to know is that it will take time to grow on Pinterest. There is a ton of information online about how fast you can grow thousands of followers and get thousands of views per day on your blog or website.

Well, that’s just not the truth in most cases.

Pinterest is a long term plan and not a get rich fast plan. There are many strategies to implement and a lot of dedication and hard work involved on your end to be successful.

I just don’t want you going into this with false expectations. I will be upfront with you and tell you exactly what you should focus on to make Pinterest work for you.

Plan for the long game and you will be rewarded. Looking for a quick fix to your blogging traffic woes,
then Pinterest is not for you.

But if you stick with it, put in lots of effort and with hard work over time, Pinterest is one of the best platforms to help you get loads of targeted traffic to your website or blog.

Unlike social platforms like Facebook and Instagram, where it’s becoming more difficult all the time to get traffic without paying for it, Pinterest is still very much a viable option. You won’t need to “pay to play” on Pinterest, unlike other platforms.

Although the option to pay for success is still an option on Pinterest, it’s not necessary.

So why do I get to tell you all this information?

Well, I have been studying and working on the Pinterest platform for the past few years. I have built many websites and blogs, and now I’m using the power of Pinterest to drive traffic.

I know what works and what doesn’t. There is a Pinterest strategy that I use to be successful. This is what I will pass on to you.

Enjoy this free Pinterest marketing strategy guide!

Make it work for you!

Creating Your Pinterest Account

I know you are here to learn how to boost your blog traffic using Pinterest. So, in order to set up your account properly, you need to have a business account.

Click Here to set up a Pinterest business account.

Pinterest blogging tips

If you already have a personal account, you can convert it to a business account. If not, then just create a business account to start. I recommend doing it this way as it will save you time and effort of switching.

Once your account is created, you will need to verify your website. You can do that by clicking the link.

I want to mention something again because it is very important. Pinterest is a search engine with a human component. From now on, when you do anything on Pinterest including creating your account, remember that. Keywords and search results are key.

Once you create your account, add your email and website url, you will be asked to select ideas that you are most interested in.

How to use Pinterest for business

Once you do that, your home feed with be populated with pins from your topic choices.

Now it’s time to set up your profile. Select the 3 dots in the upper right corner, then pick settings.

How to get traffic from Pinterest

When selecting a profile name, make sure to use your business name. You are allowed up to 30 characters. I always type the name of the business with some keywords that accurately represent your business. Don’t keyword stuff. The words you use have to make sense. Notice how my keywords used above is a phrase that both makes sense and accurately describes what my business is about.

Next, select a profile picture. A company logo is fine to use. Just make sure the image is 165x165 px. Then pick a username. It can be anything you want but keep it related to your business.

The about you section should again be an accurate representation of your business using keywords where it makes sense. Again no keyword stuffing here. For example, my about you section above describes what I do while using the keywords “healthy coffee choices”. Notice I didn’t just stuff random coffee terms in the box.

As you scroll down the page, you will see the area to claim your website. This is very important as it tells Pinterest you are the authority for that particular website. Don’t skip this step.

How to start a blog on Pinterest

In order to claim your site, you will be given 2 options. I find it easy to select the add HTML tag option and add it to your WordPress site. Copy the numbers and letters in the box and move to your WordPress dashboard.

For this step, I’m going to assume that you are using the WordPress platform. You can install the Yoast plugin which makes this next part easy.

Select Pinterest from the Yoast SEO social section. Then paste your code from the previous step in the Pinterest confirmation box. Click save changes.

When you return to Pinterest, click next and you will see this screen.

Click submit and you are all set. Wait 24 hours and you should get a success message with a checkmark next to your account confirming that it is claimed.

Enable Rich Pins – This is another part of setting up your account. You want to enable rich pins to show additional information from your website onto the pins.

The best way to set up Rich pins is to visit Pinterest here, then click add Rich pins to your account.

Next, go to the Rich pin validation page here. Enter your URL and click Validate.

Tip: Only enter a blog post URL or page URL, not your homepage. This is important for validation.

You will then receive confirmation that your pins have been validated. Click the “Apply now” button. Then you have to wait another 24 hours, and you will see this.

That’s pretty much it to setting up your Pinterest account. If you end up getting errors or if something doesn’t set up properly, contact Pinterest customer service and they will help you out.

Viral Pin Creation Checklist

In order to have a chance at your pin going viral, it needs to be created properly before it gets pinned.

You could do everything else right on Pinterest, but if you have a poor looking pin, it won’t go anywhere. Chances of a bad looking pin going viral are pretty much zero.

To give your pin a fighting chance, use the following checklist:

Pin size should be taller than wider. If you are using Canva for creating your pins, the default pin size is 735x1102px. Pinterest is now recommending a 2:3 ratio for pin size and 600x900px is now the more commonly used pin size.

Make sure the pin has an attention-grabbing title. Boring titles that are not interesting or say exactly what the pin is about, rarely get clicked.

Use Pinterest SEO. I’ll explain more on this later.

Use Fonts and colors that are easy to read and attention-grabbing. Most Pinterest users are on mobile, so your pin has to look amazing on mobile devices.

Use a logo if possible. Pin theft is huge these days, and a log will help with preventing a pin from being stolen. It also helps brand your pin.

Use unique images that are clear and precise. Don’t use photos that are not related to the pinned content. No clickbait. You can use free and paid non-copyright images from sources like Pixabay, Unsplash, Shutterstock, and many others. There are various sites available for stock images.

According to Pinterest, the Anatomy of the pin includes:

Tasteful logo placement

A context that shows how to use your product or service Your product or service as the focal point
Bold and clear use of text overlay to convey your message
Striking visual image and vertical format (600x900px)

Pinterest for bloggers

Make sure the pin size that you select, suits the content you are trying to display. Don’t make your pin look out of place just to satisfy that 2:3 ratio. But Pinterest is now saying that any pins that don’t follow a 2:3 ratio, could be penalized. They no longer want those very long and skinny pins that used to be popular. Like I was saying earlier, you need to adapt to the algorithm and show Pinterest you have what they are looking for.

Pinterest SEO

There are many pieces of the puzzle that you must put together to be successful on Pinterest. The biggest piece is understanding SEO and how to implement it on your pins and your profile.

So we already mentioned that Pinterest operates as a search engine with a human component. Let’s look at some examples.

Log in to Pinterest and in the search bar start to type the main keyword for your pin. In this example, let’s say you are interested in making a pin for “best coffee” and have a look at the suggested result that Pinterest shows you.

The terms that show up in the drop-down menu are what Pinterest is saying are the most commonly searched for terms that relate to your main keyword.

So let’s say we have an article on our blog that is all about coffee tables. That’s a pretty broad topic and most likely is competitive but very popular.

Millions of people search on Pinterest every day and according to the Pinterest auto-suggest, the term “best coffee tables” is a commonly-searched term. You can see other popular searched terms like “best coffee maker” and a few others. But let’s give our pin a chance to rank in the search results and actually be seen. So lets narrow it down a bit more.

Focusing on our main keyword “best coffee tables” we notice many other terms that appear in boxes below the search bar. These are other terms that are popular in the search which you can use to really focus in on a topic that is not so broad and gives you that chance to target certain visitors.

For example, you could design a pin with the title “best coffee tables for small spaces” or “best coffee tables for family rooms” If you click on the button for small spaces, you will see all the pins that relate to “best coffee tables for small spaces” and that term will now show in the search bar.

Earlier, I had mentioned that Pinterest is a great way to drive “targeted traffic” to your website. Well, this is how you do that. We are targeting people who are interested in “best coffee tables for small spaces”.

If your pin has all the proper elements and is eye-catching, people will click on it. That pin will have a direct link to your article on your blog, now it’s generating traffic. Imagine how many visitors you can get from thousands of people clicking your pins. Not only that, people will save your pins that they like, causing it to snowball into a viral pin that gets shared many many times and the resulting blog traffic can be impressive.

Let’s look at another example. Go to the Pinterest search bar and type “Healthy coffee” as your main keyword. You will see the following results.

Select “Healthy coffee smoothie”

You will now see all the results for that term. As before, you can narrow it down even further into “healthy coffee smoothie for breakfast” or “low carb healthy coffee smoothies” There are so many pins you can design using these keywords and many variations of those terms.

Another thing to point out. Notice the pin ranking at the top of the page with the title ” healthy coffee banana smoothie”. The main keyword is in the search bar and the term banana is in the suggested boxes below.

The pin image shows a healthy coffee smoothie and there is a banana in the image. Now is this pin perfectly optimized for SEO? Well, I don’t know without checking further into the pin description but just looking at the above keywords and seeing that it’s sitting at the top of the page, means Pinterest feels that this pin is most relevant to that search query.

* Pinterest can “see” your images on the pin. That’s why a pin related to coffee should not have some other misleading image on it.

Now let’s look at SEO for pin descriptions.

Whenever you are designing a pin title or filling out the pin description, it’s important to use the keywords from Pinterest suggest like we have been doing so far. Don’t just use words that you think are relevant.

Pinterest gives us an amazing tool to use with the search bar and we should always use that when filling out information about our pins. After all, Pinterest is basically telling us what it’s users want. All those terms you see that show up in search, are what people are searching for the most.

So we would be crazy to ignore that and not use it in our pin descriptions.

Pin descriptions need to be exactly that. A description of your pin. As I mentioned earlier, no keyword stuffing! Let’s look at our example of healthy coffee smoothies.

A proper description for your pin could be – Looking for a great healthy coffee smoothie that is perfect for breakfast? Maybe you want a coffee smoothie with bananas? Try a coffee smoothie recipe that is great with any diet that you will love.

Catch my drift here? See how many keyword options I used without keyword stuffing? The terms breakfast, diet, and bananas all were used and they are suggested terms.

When adding a pin to your boards, you will click the + sign to add the pin. Then add your SEO title and SEO description. The pin itself can be uploaded from your computer.

SEO For Pinterest Boards

Pinterest boards are basically a place to hold your pins. So when you save a pin, you must put it in a board. I recommend that you have multiple boards which all are based around your main theme, niche, or idea.

For me, I like to have 20-25 boards. Every account is different so whatever you find covers all your main topics, is how many you should have. Within reason of course. But 25 boards should be plenty. Too many boards is confusing and just looks messy.

To add a board, click the create board box.

Keeping with the coffee theme, (I like coffee) you want to set up your boards using SEO. You could set up a board for Healthy coffee drinks for diets, dairy free coffee drinks, low carb coffee drinks etc..

I also recommend that your first board be your main board with the title of your blog or business. This is where all your pins will be saved. Your other individual boards will only be for pins that are about that specific topic.

To edit your board title and description, click on the pencil icon.

Now add your SEO board description. Detail what that board is about using keywords. I used the title Healthy coffee drinks for diets.

Just like your pin descriptions, make sure to detail what the board is about using Pinterest suggestions for SEO. No keyword stuffing here either!

Winning Pinning Strategy

I will start by saying that there is not 1 specific pinning strategy that works for everyone. I wish there was. But the truth is, everyone has a different topic and different business strategies to implement. What works for you might not work for me.

There are so many variables in determining that perfect strategy. Pinterest isn’t for everyone and not all businesses will do well on Pinterest. That goes for any platform you use. But, I do know what has worked for me, and there are things that you can do to increase your reach and become a power pinner to drive huge traffic to your blog.

Here is my strategy that has worked for me. I’m always trying new things and ideas as Pinterest changes.

Once you have your profile and boards set up, you can start pinning. I recommend if you are promoting a blog post, that you create 2-3 pins per post. So if you have 30 blog posts, make 60-90 pins.

You don’t need to do this all at once, and you should always spread out the timing for your pins. As far as the number of pins per day, that will vary. Some people have success with pinning 30-50 times per day, others it’s 15-20. For me, I found that 25 pins per day does better than 50 or more.

Creating pins does take time and if you are doing 2-3 per post it can get very time-consuming. I recommend using Canva as it is user-friendly and easy to learn. If you are using manual pinning, meaning no scheduler (we will talk about this later) then you should create a spreadsheet to keep track of your pins on a daily basis. It will get very confusing if you don’t know what pins you put where and at what time.

Once you get into a routine, it gets easier. Your best chance of success will come from pinning many times throughout the day to multiple related boards.

One thing to note here. Pinterest does not like duplicate content. You don’t want to pin the same pin over and over. Creating a schedule for each different pin will be the best thing to do.

I also find that Pinterest loves it when you are active on the platform. Meaning if you are on Pinterest throughout the day pinning your content, plus pinning other people’s content, that’s a good thing. I’m not saying that you need to pin tons of others content, but if it is relevant to your topics and adds value to your boards, then pin it. Show Pinterest you are an active member who loves to use their platform.

You really need to experiment over time as your profile grows. Remember you are in this for the long haul, there are no quick wins or instant success. If you put in the effort, you will be rewarded.
You winning pinning strategy should include setting up 20- 25 boards, 2-3 pins per post, pin 25 times per day, or more if needed.

On top of pinning, you should also follow boards and people that are in your niche. Remember Pinterest loves active users, so get involved!

Your strategy should also take into consideration how many group boards you are on, how many blog posts you are promoting, pin automation like Tailwind.

So how many followers do you need? The answer to that is it doesn’t matter. Yes, if you have more followers, your pins might get seen more and pinned more. But in my experience, the amount of followers really doesn’t relate to the amount of traffic you will get. Concentrate more on creating awesome pins and a pinning strategy and don’t worry so much about getting followers. They will come naturally.

Using Group Boards

Group boards are a great way to get your pins noticed and shared. These are boards that are created by someone, then joined by many other users to share content in hopes of getting other shares to snowball into a viral pin.

Group boards used to be a huge advantage to users in the past, and I believe they still are but not as much. I still think you should use group boards, but on 1 of my accounts, I noticed no difference in traffic between being on 25 group boards versus 0.

This is something you need to experiment with.

The way to tell if the board is a group board or not is to look for a circle with the dividers in it. But I have to warn you, joining a group board is not easy. You have to be accepted by the board owner to contribute. This means sending them an email asking to join. They will want to know if you will follow the board rules, you have proper content, and agree to no spam. The owners of these boards want to make sure you are legit and will add value to the group. If you don’t follow the rules, they have no problem kicking you out.

Also, be prepared to send out a lot of email requests and get very few replies. For me, I had about 10 replies from about 100 emails. It’s a ton of work but many people say group boards are a huge part of their success so it’s worth it.

Also, make sure you are not just joining boards for the sake of joining a board. If the group board is not active, has poor content, never repins, and is spammy, then you don’t want to be there. It will actually do more harm than good. Stay away from spammy group boards. Over time, you can see the stats of what pins perform well over others, and adjust your group board strategy accordingly.

Automating Your Pins

Pin automation is an amazing tool to have. What a timesaver. So far, we have talked about pinning all your pins manually which if done right takes a lot of time and effort.

You can drastically cut down this effort and be way more organized with a pin scheduler. The only tool that I recommend you use is called Tailwind. This tool is most commonly used among Pinterest users and is approved by Pinterest. Some other automation tools may not be approved like Boardbooster, which is not around anymore.

A good way to get your account banned is to use a non approved software or tool to automate your pinning strategy

Tailwind is a tool that I recommend you check out if you are going to be a serious Pinterest user. Although not necessary, it will save you a lot of time and effort and it gives you the advantage of joining Tailwind Tribes.

Of course, like everything, there is a strategy involved. A strategy that will take time for you to implement. But if done right, and you take advantage of everything Tailwind has to offer, you can skyrocket your Pinterest reach and overall traffic to your website.

But if you are new to Pinterest, Tailwind is definitely not necessary. Learning Tailwind is a whole other separate course in itself.

Summary

I really hope you found this information helpful. Take the time to learn how to use Pinterest to promote your blog. It is worth it to understand Pinterest and how it can work to send a ton of traffic to your blog or website. There is no doubt that the Pinterest platform is one of the best online for directing targeted traffic. It is one of the most popular used platforms in the world today and it continues to grow.

Don’t underestimate the Power of Pinterest!

Of course, there are many other topics I could go into great depth, and there are many Pinterest courses online that you can buy. I have personally bought a few and for the most part, found them to be helpful. If I can recommend any one of them it would be Pinterest Traffic Avalanche by Create And Go.

This course is by far the best Pinterest course out of the ones I have tried. It covers everything you need to know in great depth and is an all in one course. I took this course and was blown away from the amount of content and value you receive.

I also wrote a full review of the course you can read here. I go into much more detail and explain everything you need to know about it. The Create And Go team have a ton of great and free content you can check out as well.

Check out a video from Lauren at Create And Go then read my review here.

  • Creating Email Opt-Ins.

There are many more topics included. All of your main questions and concerns about making your first income with your blog are answered in this course.

Who are Alex and Lauren?

Alex Nerney and Lauren McManus are the creators of Create And Go.

They have truly inspired me and taught me everything I needed to know to create and launch my blog, start getting traffic and monetize my blog with Make money blogging for beginners.

Here is a bit about them…

Alex & Lauren are a couple that originally met in Dallas, Texas and at the time were working their full-time jobs, Alex as a personal trainer and Lauren as a CPA (Certified Public Accountant).

They had a dream of quitting their full-time soul-sucking jobs, wanted to travel together and live life on their own terms. Tired of the same old 9-5 jobs they hated, they sold everything, quit their full-time jobs and moved into Alex`s dad`s house. Their plan was to devote 100% of their time into starting a blogging career.

In their very 1st year blogging, they made over $103,000 with their health and fitness blog, Avocadu.com.  Now 2 years later, they have built 2 successful blogs (Avocadu and Create & Go) and are currently making over $50,000 per month!  They mostly use Pinterest as a main source of getting traffic to their blog. They went from beginner bloggers with no visitors to their blog, to now getting over 500,000 visitors per month using Pinterest!

The most amazing thing about it is they are self-taught. They created their success by trial and error (they actually had a blog before Avocadu that failed big time).  Their current courses are something they wished they had to guide them when they were first starting out.

I first noticed Alex and Lauren on Youtube as I was searching for information and courses on how to start a blog. I couldn’t believe the amount of videos and quality free content they were offering to their viewers. I took the time to watch every video they had and soaked up all the information I possibly could! It took a while but I did it. I loved to see their blogging strategies and growing income reports each month. It’s really impressive. If you haven’t had a chance to see their YouTube channel, I highly recommend that you check it out.

From that point on, I was hooked into learning more and wanted to try their first Course Build And Launch Your Blog. Let me tell you I’m so glad I did! From there I purchased their Pinterest Traffic Avalanche, and of course, Make Money Blogging For Beginners!

Alex and Lauren currently have 4 courses available on Create & Go:

Make Money Blogging For Beginners – My Experience And Results

I wanted to share my experience after buying and implementing the strategies in this course. When I first saw the offer to buy this course, I made the decision right away not to buy it. Yes not to buy it. I was looking for a solid way to monetize my blog and start making money. But I had this idea in my head from day one, not to spend money on courses if I didn’t have to. I had already bought 2 other courses from Alex and Lauren which are amazing and worth every cent and more. With the monetization side of things, I wanted to learn on my own and do everything myself. Huge mistake! I struggled to find proper information on blog monetization and making money seemed like it would never happen. Honestly, I almost quit and gave up so many times. It was very frustrating. So one day I saw that Alex and Lauren offered a sale on the course. Knowing that I was about to give up anyway, I figured I would give it a try. Once I bought the course I was really excited to start it.

I was confident that this course would work for me. From knowing the huge value you receive from their other courses which I had already been through – Build And Launch Your Blog course, and Pinterest Traffic Avalanche. I can now say without a doubt, I wish I bought this course sooner. Moving ahead to now, my blog is monetized and making money. I took my time going through the course and implemented the strategies. The Make Money Blogging For Beginners course simply works.

There are many things I love about this course. Some of these things are:

  • I really like the way content is taught in the course. Some courses only offer text and PDF’s to download. Which in my opinion is just not effective. Alex and Lauren use both video and text. It’s so nice to have a real person explaining everything to you with the option to read slides and download information.
  • Their teaching skills and methods used are top notch. As a former teacher myself, I know what it takes to get your point across and have it stick with the student. Alex and Lauren make it easy to learn and do a great job explaining the content.
  • There is a great section which provides how to drive traffic to your blog using Pinterest. You can read about Pinterest traffic here.
  • I also love the fact that the information given in the course is being updated on a regular basis. This is very reassuring to know you will be given the newest content and can access it at any time.
  • The amount of value given with this course is excellent. There is plenty of information taught in this course, way more than I first thought. Plus to have free access to their private support group is so valuable. That alone is worth the cost.

There are a couple of things I feel could be improved with the course:

  • Some of the modules are pretty long and for me personally, I prefer shorter ones. I find your attention can wander with longer modules. That’s more of a personal preference, it may not be the case for you.
  • There are sections covering email marketing which is great. But I would have liked to see it covered more in depth. This is an area I am struggling with, and some info you may need to find elsewhere. This may not be the case for you, but that is my experience.

But that’s it! Honestly, there are not many things I can complain about with this course. I actually feel they should be charging more for it. You get a huge amount of content for the price you pay.

Is Make Money Blogging For Beginners Right For You?

This course will be a perfect fit for you if:

 Beginner Bloggers
  • You have purchased a domain name and hosting, have built a blog (hopefully using our Launch Your Blog Course), and are ready to start building an income from your blog.

Intermediate Bloggers Not Making Money

Are you six months or more into blogging and…

  • Have ads on your blog and are not making any money from them?
  • Tried linking random affiliate products and are only make a couple dollars every day?
  • Want to pull your hair out because it seems like some bloggers flourish so easily? (especially those who blog about blogging)?

This course is also for you.

In fact, the funnel tactics will likely take you to $1,000 per month and beyond quickly if you already have an established fan base.

Plus, the traffic coaching could lead to additional visitors if you’ve only tried Instagram or Facebook so far.

Busy People

Alex and Lauren have taught everyone from busy young professionals to moms with 3 kids how to make $1,000 a month.

Those Interested in Affiliate Marketing

Much of what is in this course is based on affiliate marketing, so be ready for that. The best parts of affiliate marketing for those who don’t know are:

  • You don’t have to create a product.
  • The products are already established, selling well, and people like them.
  • The product creator will be taking care of the customers after purchase, so there is nothing left to worry about after the product is sold.
  • Affiliate marketing will teach you much of what you need to know about making sales online.

The course is not for you if:

You Have Not Started a Blog

If you have not purchased a domain name and hosting, you need to start there instead of buying this course.

  • Those Who Have a Blog But It’s Completely Blank – If you have purchased a domain name and hosting but still have a completely blank WordPress blog with nothing on it, please check out Launch Your Blog Course.
  • Personal Blogs Not Interested in Making Any Money – Hobby bloggers, I love ya, but this is not for you. This course is about income and maximizing your blog for making money. 
  • Lazy People Afraid of Putting in the Work – Do you like cutting corners? Do you often look for ways around the work? Are you already thinking about outsourcing certain parts of your blog?If so, this product is not for you. It’s going to require you to roll up your sleeves and do work. But guess what, that’s what it takes to be successful at anything in life! This course is no different.
  • A few other things I feel is worth noting:
    • Alex and Lauren provide some great bonuses with this course. There are some really great and valuable extras that are included in the price.
    • No matter what niche or topic your blog is about, this course is designed to help you.
    • There is a 100% money back guarantee policy. Which I don’t think you will need!

    My Final Thought

    I highly recommend this course. It was a huge help for me and I got the success they said I would if I applied the strategies they teach. It has given me so much more confidence in my blog going forward and being a success. Before buying this course, I struggled with blog monetization and I felt like I would never make money with my blog. But now after completing the course and applying everything that was taught, I feel 100% confident and I know it was the right move! Why? Because I am making money! This course is the reason why my blog went from brand new to now making money every month. Now, this is not something that will happen overnight and it does require some hard work. But anyone can do this. I suggest that you implement the strategies Lauren and Alex teach in this course. It will change the way you approach making money with your blog.

Who are Alex and Lauren?

Alex Nerney and Lauren McManus are the creators of Create And Go.

They have truly inspired me and taught me everything I needed to know to create and launch my blog and start getting traffic using Pinterest Traffic Avalanche.

Here is a bit about them…

Alex & Lauren are a couple that originally met in Dallas, Texas and at the time were working their full-time jobs, Alex as a personal trainer and Lauren as a CPA (Certified Public Accountant).

They had a dream of quitting their full-time soul-sucking jobs, wanted to travel together and live life on their own terms. Tired of the same old 9-5 jobs they hated, they sold everything, quit their full-time jobs and moved into Alex`s dad`s house. Their plan was to devote 100% of their time into starting a blogging career.

In their very 1st year blogging, they made over $103,000 with their health and fitness blog, Avocadu.com.  Now 2 years later, they have built 2 successful blogs (Avocadu and Create & Go) and are currently making over $50,000 per month!  They mostly use Pinterest as a main source of getting traffic to their blog. They went from beginner bloggers with no visitors to their blog, to now getting over 500,000 visitors per month using Pinterest!

The most amazing thing about it is they are self-taught. They created their success by trial and error (they actually had a blog before Avocadu that failed big time).  Their current courses are something they wished they had to guide them when they were first starting out.

I first noticed Alex and Lauren on Youtube as I was searching for information and courses on how to start a blog. I couldn’t believe the number of videos and quality free content they were offering to their viewers. I took the time to watch every video they had and soaked up all the information I possibly could! It took a while but I did it. I loved to see their blogging strategies and growing income reports each month. It’s really impressive. If you haven’t had a chance to see their YouTube channel, I highly recommend that you check it out.

From that point on, I was hooked into learning more and wanted to try their first Course Build And Launch Your Blog. Let me tell you I’m so glad I did! From there I purchased their Make Money Blogging For Beginners course, and of course Pinterest Traffic Avalanche.

I knew that Pinterest was a powerful platform. But what I didn’t know was how it can be leveraged to drive huge amounts of traffic to your blog for free!

Alex and Lauren currently have 4 courses available on Create & Go:

Pinterest Traffic Avalanche Review – My Experience And Results

When I first saw the offer to buy this course, I was a bit timid at first. I’ll be honest here, I was looking for a solid way to grow traffic to my blog but was determined not to spend any money on a course. I figured that I will learn on my own and figure it out. After a while of struggling, I bought 2 cheap courses online for learning Pinterest. They were very basic and didn’t even scratch the surface of what is required to be successful. Now I did learn some things from them, but nothing that was going to help me have success.

I was confident from reading the reviews and watching all the great content that Alex and Lauren give on their Youtube channel, that this course was really going to help me. I wanted to do this right, so I told myself that investing in the course was the right thing to do. I had already been through their Build And Launch Your Blog course, and Make Money Blogging For Beginners, and knowing the huge value you receive from their courses, I decided to buy the course. Let’s just say that I wished I saved my money on those other cheap courses and bought this right away.

Fast forward to now and I couldn’t be more happy with my purchase. I had a brand new blog and needed to start getting traffic to it. This course will help you from the start if your a beginner, but will also help bloggers that have already started getting traffic and looking to ramp it up.

Fairly quickly my blog started generating traffic from Pinterest. I can 100% say for sure this was due to the Pinterest Traffic Avalanche course. There is no way my blog would be where it is today without this course. As of writing this review, I have been driving thousands of visitors to my blog and generating daily traffic from using the strategies laid out in this course.

There are many things I love about this course. Some of these things are:

  • I really like the way content is taught in the course. Some courses only offer text and PDF’s to download. Which in my opinion is just not effective. Alex and Lauren use both video and text. It’s so nice to have a real person explaining everything to you with the option to read slides and download information.
  • Their teaching skills and methods used are top notch. As a former teacher myself, I know what it takes to get your point across and have it stick with the student. Alex and Lauren make it easy to learn and do a great job explaining the content.
  • There is a section which provides extra Ninja strategies that are a huge help.
  • I also love the fact that the information given in the course is being updated on a regular basis. This is very reassuring to know you will be given the newest content and can access it at any time.
  • The amount of value given with this course is excellent. There is plenty of information taught in this course, way more than I first thought. Plus to have free access to their private support group is so valuable. That alone is worth the cost.

There are a couple of things I feel could be improved with the course:

  • Some of the modules are pretty long and for me personally, I prefer shorter ones. I find your attention can wander with longer modules. That’s more of a personal preference, it may not be the case for you.
  • There is a section on promoting pins which is great. I would have liked to see more detail on that, including success stories of how others run their promotions successfully.

But that’s it! Honestly, there are not many things I can complain about with this course. I actually feel they should be charging more for it. You get a huge amount of content for the price you pay.

Is Pinterest Traffic Avalanche Right For You?

This course will be a perfect fit for you if:

  • You currently have a blog or have just started a blog and want to grow it FAST and the smart way.
  • You’ve been blogging but are new to Pinterest or are not getting the results you want.
  • You’re not afraid of rolling up your sleeves and putting in some “work” to get good at Pinterest. This is not some overnight traffic explosion scheme to get low-quality visitors. This is about how to build a growing and engaging audience for your brand and requires effort.
  • You’re sick of things moving slowly and really want to crank things up a notch.

The course is not for you if:

  • You want the “secrets” to blogging but don’t intend to put in any actual work. If you don’t want to put any time or money into your blog, this is not for you.
  • You have not started a blog yet.
  • You are just blogging for fun and have no intention of making any profit with your blog.
  • You have an eCommerce website with no blog attached.
  • You consider yourself an advanced user of Pinterest, are jaded, and/or have“heard it all before”.

A few other things I feel is worth noting:

  • Alex and Lauren provide some great bonuses with this course. There are some really great and valuable extras that are included in the price.
  • No matter what niche or topic your blog is about, this course is designed to help you.
  • There is a 100% money back guarantee policy. Which I don’t think you will need!

My Final Thought – Pinterest Traffic Avalanche Review

I highly recommend this course. It was a huge help for me and I got the success they said I would if I applied the strategies they teach. It has given me so much more confidence in my blog going forward and being a success. Before buying this course, I was nervous about how I was going to get traffic, I felt like it was going to be way too much work, cost too much money to buy traffic or wait for Google with SEO and just not worth doing. But now after completing the course and applying everything that was taught, I feel 100% confident and I know it was the right move! Now, this is not something that will happen overnight and it does require some hard work. But anyone can do this. I suggest that you implement the strategies Lauren and Alex teach in this course. It will change everything you thought about using Pinterest as a traffic source and if done right, you will see the results.

Build And Launch Your Blog – My Experience And Results

 

When I first saw the offer to buy this course, I was a bit timid at first. I didn’t want to spend more money on a blogging course that wasn’t going to work for me. I bought a few cheap courses in the past and honestly they didn’t help much at all. They are cheap for a reason I guess. I did learn some things from them, but nothing that was going to help me have a successful launch to my blog.

I was confident from reading the reviews and watching all the great content that Alex and Lauren give on their Youtube channel, that this course was really going to help me. I wanted to do this right, so I told myself that investing into the course was the right thing to do.

Fast forward to now and I couldn’t be more happy with my purchase. I started a brand new blog, with no design, no traffic, and not much of a plan. The only thing I really had from the start was a blog name. This course will help you from the start if your a beginner, but will also help bloggers that have already started and looking for more helpful information.

My blog was able to be up and running all within a month. I can 100% say for sure this was due to the Build And Launch Your Blog course. There is no way my blog would be where it is today without this course. As of writing this review, I have 18 blog posts written, my blog is generating daily traffic from using the strategies laid out in the other courses Create And Go teach. Yes I ended up buying the other courses too!

There are many things I love about this course. Some of these things are:

 

  • I really like the way content is taught in the course. Some courses only offer text and PDF’s to download. Which in my opinion is just not effective. Alex and Lauren use both video and text. Its so nice to have a real person explaining everything to you with the option to read slides and download information.
  • Their teaching skills and methods used are top notch. As a former teacher myself, I know what it takes to get your point across,  and have it stick with the student. Alex and Lauren make it easy to learn and do a great job explaining the content.
  • There is a great section on learning WordPress and Themes that are best to use for your blog. WordPress can be very confusing to a first time user, but Alex and Lauren offer some really great information and help with this.
  • I also love the fact that the information given in the course is being updated on a regular basis. This is very reassuring to know you will be given the newest content and can access it at anytime.
  • The amount of value given with this course is excellent. There is plenty of information taught in this course, way more than I first thought. Plus to have free access to their private support group is so valuable. That alone is worth the cost.

 

There are a couple of things I feel could be improved with the course:

 

  • I would have included some more information on Search Engines and Optimizing your blog posts. There is some content on keyword research but I would have liked just a bit more on SEO tips for beginning bloggers.
  • There was no topics showing how to put Youtube videos in your blog posts. This is not a big concern, but for people creating blogs for the first time and have never done this before, it could be a struggle.

 

But thats it! Honestly there are not many things I can complain about with this course. I actually feel they should be charging more for it. You get a huge amount of content for the price you pay.

 Is the Build And Launch You Blog course right for you?

 

This course will be a perfect fit for you if:

  • You are new to blogging and looking to get a step by step process to have your blog setup and launched properly
  • You have already started a blog and looking for guidance on what to do next
  • You are looking for well structured and organized system that is proven to work
  • You are looking to improve or gain knowledge on building a blog with WordPress

 

The course is not for you if:

  • You are an experienced blogger and have already setup your blog
  • You are an expert in using WordPress
  • You are looking to monetize your blog or looking to learn methods of getting traffic to your blog. There are other courses offered from Create And Go for those items.

A few other things I feel is worth noting:

  • Alex and Lauren provide some great bonuses with this course. There are some really great and valuable extras that are included in the price.
  • No matter what niche or topic you plan to write about, this course is designed to help you.
  • There is a 100% money back guarantee policy. Which I don’t think you will need!

 

My Final Thought

 

I highly recommend this course. It was a huge help for me and I got the success they said I would if I applied the strategies they teach. It has given me so much more confidence in my blog going forward and being a success. Before buying this course, I was nervous about starting a blog, felt like it was going to be way too much work and just not worth doing. But now after completing the course and applying everything that was taught, I feel 100% confident and I know it was the right move! Now this is not something that will happen overnight and it does require some hard work. But anyone can do this. If you are a brand new blogger, I suggest taking this course and give yourself 30 days or less to complete all the lessons and apply what you learned. Everyone is different, but if you work hard and take the course seriously you will have an amazing blog built that you will absolutely love!
