Hey Blog Family, do you want the insider scoop from true Power Pinners about how to become a master at using Pinterest for business?
Are you wondering how these Pinterest accounts are driving massive traffic to their blogs and websites via Pinterest?
This insane traffic leading to sales, email subscribers, and loyal fans…
And did we mention that it’s FREE traffic AND evergreen content? (Evergreen meaning you continue to get traffic from older posts. You don’t HAVE to post new content to get traffic).
Welp. You’re in the right place.
It blows my mind how many big websites are throwing around Pinterest business tips and then when I check their profile, they only have like 2,000 followers…
That’s like someone teaching people how to swim because they stood in the shallow end one time. Here’s our Pinterest profile for proof.
We got to 75k followers in less than a year. The niche is health and fitness (no, we didn’t start out blogging about blogging to make our money).
This is the blog we refer to when we talk about sales/traffic/etc on this website for those who are new here.
We actually made $103,457.98 in our first year on our little blog, Avocadu.com. You can read more about our blogging income in our income reports.
Real talk… WE LOVE PINTEREST.
It has been a ridiculously awesome blessing to both our lives and our businesses, allowing us to quit our jobs and work full-time online. This is the inside scoop and articles from true power pinners that you need to check out.

Tailwind. How we schedule pins every month. Pinterest loves when you manually pin things, but a scheduler is the only way to go for real success.
It frees up your time to focus on creating content and work on other projects. We also use it to track the success of boards we join to make sure we are not on any bad Pinterest boards. It also helps you track your overall profile performance and the performance of individual pins.
Canva. The most awesome image creator ever. Without eye-catching pins, you won’t go anywhere on Pinterest. You can have the best content ever, but it won’t ever see the light of day without great pins. Canva is by far the best free platform to use to create pins!
Pin Groupie. How to find group boards to join. You can organize by collaborators, repins, followers, etc. Just make sure once you join to check how good the board is on Tailwind to ensure you’re not on a bad one. Poorly performing group boards bring down the entire account.
Shutterstock. Where we get stock images from to create amazing pins. It’s expensive, tedious to use, and totally worth every penny.
Pinterest Analytics. The source Pinterest gives you to track stats, visits to your Pinterest page, audience likes and dislikes, and other metrics.
