Pinterest For Bloggers: An Online Course

Note: I may earn money or products from the companies, products, or links mentioned in this post.

I’m very excited to announce that the online course I’ve been working on for bloggers for the past year is finally done! I’ve worked so hard to make this a great course geared to bloggers and others who want to make the most of their Pinterest account and gain valuable traffic back to their blog.

I’ve been a fan of Pinterest since the beginning. I joined when it was still in beta and I just knew it was going to be big. Now, as a blogger for seven years I have learned what it takes to be successful on Pinterest and with over 26,000 followers I have the numbers to prove it!

Several years ago I started out coaching other bloggers on how to be successful on Pinterest and from there I realized I wanted to write an entire course. This online course reads just like I am coaching you personally, and includes step-by-step instructions for success in every area of Pinterest and blogging. I also include pictures, tutorials, links, a video, resources and more!

if you’re looking for personalized Pinterest coaching, want to learn more about taking your Pinterest account to the next level, how to gain more followers, and how to use Pinterest for successful blogging, then this course is for you!

Below are the lesson titles and main categories. It goes even more in-depth on these topics with many subheadings within the course. There is no one lesson on Pinterest SEO, as SEO tips are integrated throughout every lesson.

Here’s just a peak of what this course includes…
