RESOURCES FOR EVERYONE WHO WANTS TO LEARN HOW TO MARKET THEIR BUSINESS ON PINTEREST
Trying to find trustworthy and proven advice about Pinterest can be hard and confusing, especially if you are new to the world of Pinterest marketing. There are many articles that promise a strategy that will work for you, get you thousands of visitors overnight, or give downright bad advice. Despite the bad apples, there are still good ones in the bunch! Don’t let all of the blog posts, freebies, videos, or courses scare or overwhelm you!
I’ve read more than my fair share of blog posts and taken plenty of courses — some measuring up to their promises, and some not. I struggled to find credible advice, whether I paid for it or not, that I’d feel comfortable sharing with my audience.
My goal is to always provide high-quality, credible, and proven resources and tools so that you can master your Pinterest marketing and grow your income while also growing your impact.
This page (and all the other content on my site) is updated regularly and is vetted by myself or Pinterest experts that I personally trust and learn from.

THE ONE PINTEREST MARKETING RESOURCE YOU NEED FOR LEARNING HOW TO USE PINTEREST FOR BUSINESS
There’s a TON of resources out there for you to choose from, but honestly you really only need one: The Simple Pin Collective by Simple Pin Media.
The Simple Pin Collective (SPC for short) is a monthly membership for learning everything you need to know to market your business or blog on Pinterest successfully and without the headache or drama.
When you join, you get all the past month’s training videos, worksheets, and coaching calls. You also get access to the exclusive Facebook community where you can get feedback and support from Kate Ahl, her team, and other knowledgable members.
What I love most about the Simple Pin Collective is that it’s updated ALL THE TIME and the Facebook community is actually engaged and drama-free. Trust me when I say — those things are rare to come by in one single resource!
Kate Ahl and the team at both Simple Pin Media and The Collective are my go-to sources for all things Pinterest marketing and Tailwind. Do yourself a favor and soak up the vast amount of knowledge they have to share within the SPC and the Simple Pin Podcast.

RESOURCES FOR PINTEREST VA’S, MANAGERS, AND MARKETERS
If you have been thinking of starting your own Pinterest marketing business or already have one in the works, these Pinterest marketing resources and tools will be game-changers for you!
THE ONE COURSE THAT WILL TEACH YOU HOW TO BECOME A PINTEREST VA
I have invested a lot of time, energy, and money into learning how to become the best Pinterest marketer that I can be (p.s., you’ll never stop learning or improving!) and one of the best investments I’ve made to date was the Become A Pinterest VA Today course by Gina Horkey and Kristin Larsen!
The Become A Pinterest VA Today course will walk you through everything you need to know about becoming a Pinterest VA, from the tech side of Pinterest to finding clients.
It is a one-stop-shop for starting your own Pinterest VA business and also has an accompanying Facebook group that is run by Gina and Kristin and their awesome assistant Jessica. The Facebook group has office hours, live Q&A sessions, and a community of supportive Pinterest VA’s.
Interested in becoming a Pinterest VA? Learn more here.
Not ready to invest in the course but want more info and a teaser into the life of a Pinterest VA? Gina and Kristin also offer their Be Your First Client workbook!
It’s available after you sign up for the course waitlist (which you can do on this page).
Want to dive deeper into the world of Pinterest and do more than create and schedule Pins for your clients?
Learn how to be a Pinterest Strategist (yep, there’s a difference between a Pinterest VA/Manager and a Pinterest Strategist) with the Simplifying Pinterest Keywords™ course by Pinterest expert and educator, Kathryn Moorhouse!
I also highly recommend her Pinterest Strategy Playbook for creating strategies that are personalized for yours or your clients’ businesses and unique goals. Hint: purchase this one FIRST, before the Simplifying Pinterest Keywords™ course!
Kathryn Moorhouse has become a staple of Pinterest education for me, alongside Simple Pin Media. They are my top two go-to sources that I trust and highly reccomend.
Both are very data and fact driven, which is vital when it comes to Pinterest (or any business related advice).
Kathryn also has a 12-week program just for Pinterest Managers/Strategists who want to not only up their Pinterest game, but who want to become experts in Pinterest marketing and be able to give their clients an experience (and most importantly) results of a lifetime.
Though I have not taken it yet, I do plan to enroll in her Pinterest Gameplan program when it opens up in Spring of 2020. I will write a review when I complete it.
