Leveling up my Pinterest marketing strategy was the LAST thing on my mind this week. I’ve been down for the count for TWO WEEKS with a cold/flu/who-knows-what that kept me up all hours of the night and had me looking and feeling like those zombies you see on The Walking Dead.

I’m still coughing but at least I’m sleeping and I fell WAY behind on my blogging objectives but I tell you, it was one of those things where I wasn’t necessarily bedridden and sleeping nonstop, but if I tried to do anything, I got wiped out.
So I took two weeks to rest and recover and I’m just now starting to feel normal again.
Normal enough that I picked up this guide to help me ramp up my Pinterest marketing efforts. Clicking that link will let you purchase it, too, if you want to grab it now instead of waiting until my final recommendation.
Ever since the holidays, I’ve been half-assing my social media marketing – especially with Pinterest. And there’s no reason for that.
Pinterest marketing is some of the easiest promotion you can do. And as part of my intention to devote more time and energy to promoting in this manner, I thought I’d give this strategy guide a go and add it to my arsenal of Pinterest training.
Heads up: this is not for you if you’re just starting out or don’t have a Pinterest promotion and marketing strategy in place. If this is you, you’ll want to start with this.
What I’m Already Doing
- I pin every day – it’s fun and easy
- I continue to look for group boards to join
- I pin MY pins to group boards and my boards
- I pin other peoples’ pins to MY boards (I don’t really focus on pinning other people’s pins to group boards, but if I feel like it I will to help the group boards GROW.)
- I create pin-worthy, shareable images with PicMonkey and Stencil (at least, I think they’re awesome.)
- I use keywords in my profile, alt tags, and descriptions (Jaaxy is AMAZING for finding profitable keywords!)
- I look for people to follow, follow them, and pin their stuff
There isn’t much more to what I do and what I do I learned from the guides I talk about here. Now I’m ready to continue on the path of GROWTH – I want some questions answered, I want to know what more I can to do become a Super Pinner, and I want to see more traffic and income from Pinterest.
Those were the main reasons I picked up this next-level strategy guide. Let’s see what we get.
Taking a Look at the Sales Page
The first thing I noticed is that this Pinterest strategy guide is for the blogger who is ready to take her results to the next level.
Sign me up! 🙂
Right now, the training is being sold at a special sale price and that price will increase. I was aware of this sale last week and didn’t make my purchase until today, so I consider myself lucky.
But even if you don’t get it at today’s price, it’s still an affordable buy. And when I say “affordable,” I mean less than the cost of dining out with the whole family. 🙂 Y’all know how I feel about overpriced training!
We’re told what’s covered in this next-level training guide:
- How to know if a group board is working for you
- If/when we should delete pins (since some say do and some say don’t EVER)
- How to get invited to group boards
- What to do if your pins aren’t working
And I can say that what she shares in the first video training – yep, it’s all video “look-over-my-shoulder” training! – was a complete eye-opener and answered one of my biggest questions regarding my strategy and results (and I haven’t seen anyone share this yet!)
That’s it for the sales page. Not a lot of text to read and Jennifer gets straight to the point. She tells me what I’m going to get and so far, she’s delivering.
I’m Ready to Click the Buy Button…Now What?
Once you click the Buy Now button, you’re taken to the order page where you confirm your email address, PayPal address, and confirm your purchase.
You then finish up in PayPal.
No upsells to wade through and no special offers. Once you buy, you can access your purchase.
I was sent an email with the login page, my login ID, and my password.
My Thoughts So Far – A Great Way to Level Up Your Pinterest Marketing Strategy!
I don’t know why I was so hesitant to make this purchase. Like I said, I knew about this sale last week and didn’t purchase until today.
I’m loving it, so far.
I like that I don’t have to read through an eBook and pick out the action steps. I love that I get shown what to look for and where to look for it.
I was even surprised to learn something kind of major in the first 15 minutes of the training. No spoilers here, folks, but Jennifer has done her homework and shows actual data that is presented several different ways depending on certain factors.
It’s no wonder the numbers can be so confusing!
And that’s what I’m looking forward to – getting some clarity and refining my own personal Pinterest marketing strategy.
Up next for me is to finish up tasks that need to be done before I can move forward with my review of Extreme Review.
I’m also going to be working on refining my Pinterest marketing with the resources I already have. I’m re-reading PinPlosion, Pinfabulous Affiliate, PinTrender, Perfect PinSense, and Pinterest Success Strategies.
I’m going to be creating an in-depth action item list so that all I need to do is pull that up (or print it out) and check off items as I go. I’ll probably share it with my list if you wanna get in on it! You can sign up using the form below.
I’ll be sure to continue with this review as I progress, so I hope you’ll be following along!
