I’m no expert and I don’t dive into the what, why, and how of Pinterest, but I’ve said this from the get-go: when you rely on automation, you’re gaming the system. “Legally,” sure. But when you do that, the system wises up and adjusts.
In this case, bloggers started relying on group boards and automation tools to build their profiles and grow their blog traffic; Pinterest was OK with it, which is why they approved tools like Tailwind and Boardbooster.
But here’s the thing: Pinterest is in the business of pleasing their real audience, not bloggers and internet marketers looking for free traffic. So, of course, they’re going to change the way they do things. Which means we have to change the way we do things.
I don’t have time to worry about algorithm changes and automation tools, so I don’t. I pin daily (for the most part) and I pin manually, which is a solid strategy for steady, reliable growth over time.
I’ve also found legit strategies others have come up with to help me streamline how I pin. I use this strategy that is quite comprehensive and comes with an amazing Google + support group and I use this strategy for manual pinning.
I’m happy with what I’m doing and I turn a blind eye to any other ebooks or courses about Pinterest because there’s been nothing new out there – just rehashed info and speculation (<== I don’t have time for that, either!)
BUT…then I got word that Jennifer – a.k.a. PotPieGirl – was “in her workshop” working on something Pinterest-related. When PPG is in her workshop, I know good stuff is comin’ my way.
Then, she let people know that she had created a new strategy guide for people who are struggling with Pinterest, seeing a decline in results from group boards, or KNOW they need to adapt to the changes they’re seeing but don’t know HOW.
And she hinted that manual pinning on Pinterest was KEY, which really spoke to me.
“My Pinterest Traffic is Declining!”
Now, if you’re a total Pinterest newbie, this doesn’t apply to you. You’re just getting started and you need to create attractive pins, get on group boards, and start growing your profile and traffic.
But if you’ve been on Pinterest for at least 6 months, are working a strategy, but are now seeing a decrease in traffic to your pins and to your site, this could be what you need to know and will save you the time and energy it takes testing and tweaking on your own.
Get Ready to P.I.M.P. your Pinterest – The Pinterest Improvement Master Plan
The Pinterest Improvement Master Plan strategy guide is in pre-launch, which means the price WILL go UP and it won’t take long. But you can lock in the discounted price before the guide goes live.
Jennifer runs quick sales and then follows through on her promise of a price increase (and I’ve been on the wrong side of that promise a few times! 😆 )
So if you’re eager to do something about your Pinterest results, I suggest you consider securing your copy a.s.a.p. Jennifer hasn’t put a deadline on this, but one interested party asked if this offer would be available until Monday, 10/16/17, and the polite reply was basically, “probably not.”
You don’t have to decide right now, but if you’re curious, Jennifer’s created a quick 16-minute video you can watch to learn more: WATCH THE VIDEO and P.I.M.P Your Pinterest!
