Do you wonder how some bloggers and business owners get incredible traffic from Pinterest and if you could achieve the same thing?
Do other bloggers and businesses talk about how Pinterest is their biggest referral source and you can’t understand how they have made it work?
Do you feel overwhelmed at the thought of taking on one more social media site and learning how to master it, never mind using it long term?
Would you like to benefit from someone who has already made all the mistakes and tried many different methods to get Pinterest working for them, just so you don’t have to?
Ok, so if you’re nodding your head along to any, or several of the above questions it’s likely that you need to know more about me and how I can help you make the difference to your blog or business.
I'm Jen Stanbrook. I’m a home and interiors blogger, with a blog called Love Chic Living, multi award winning and ranked in the Top 10 of UK Home and Design Blogs 2016.
I’m also a freelance blogger, where I write on that site and many others as a way to make my living. I’ve been collaborating with brands, building my brand and career for several years now. And I’ve learned a heck of a lot in that time.
I discovered Pinterest back in January 2013 as a way to support my blog and in a month I had taken my blog traffic from around 5k views to over 20k. In just one month! Now that was back in the day before the fancy algorithms were created, but I didn’t lose that traffic, I only managed to increase it.
Over the coming years I discovered how Pinterest was going to change my blog, and my life in the process.
I saw my traffic grow, and grow. The more I learned about Pinterest and tried to understand how it could work for me, the greater the changes.
Jen's class gave me the kick I needed to start pinning properly. Before speaking to her I regarded Pinterest as something quite fun that I could do in my spare time, but Jen showed me how to really make it work for my blog. It was easy to understand and simple to do. Completely invaluable. – Kate Watson-Smyth madaboutthehouse.com
A session with Jen made me much more focused and intentional when using Pinterest. Previous to the session I was beginning to feel a bit overwhelmed and lost amongst my many boards. Jen helped me narrow them down so I could get much more specific about my pins and work on the great boards I already had. – Susan Earlam oldfashionedsusie.com
Now I’m not saying that I didn’t make mistakes. I certainly did. I made many mistakes, and some of them are still out there on Pinterest for everyone to see. But the point is, I learned from them, and did things differently. It’s quite likely that you’ve been making some of these mistakes too.
Pinning landscape shaped images on my boards and wondering why no-one repinned them
Not having a 'Pin It' sharing button on my site over my images (yes I did this one for a LONG time!)
Pinning like crazy for a few weeks and then not going near it for another month (yes you do need to be consistent).
Ignoring rich pins for so long. And not understanding the benefit they would bring to my pinning.
And most importantly, it took me a long time to realise that Pinterest isn’t like any other social media platform. In fact, it’s not one at all. It’s a Search Engine!
Once I’d stopped making all these mistakes, and really understood how I could drive even more traffic to my blog, things started to take off.
In the last 2 years, I’ve seen over 1 million hits to my blog from Pinterest alone.
And it has changed my blogging career and opened the door to some incredible opportunities, experiences and increases in income.
I’ve spoken at conferences for brands, blogging communities and PR companies, teaching them and their customers how to use Pinterest.
I have been able to travel abroad on incredible press trips that I wouldn’t have been given if it wasn’t for my traffic and following.
I can charge more for commissioned collaborations when I offer to include the post as part of my pinning strategy.
I am approached much more than I ever was by brands and am able to bring flexibility, choice and huge rewards to me and my family.
That’s why I say boosting my traffic with Pinterest has been a GAME CHANGER!
I’m now in a position where I get anywhere between 50k and 120k hits from Pinterest alone EVERY. SINGLE. MONTH.
(My content and pins are seasonal which is why the views can vary.)
Wouldn’t it be amazing to have that many people seeing your work or your products? Could you imagine how it might change things for you?
Perhaps you’d be able to give up your job and blog full-time?
Perhaps you could provide your family with an extra income, making life better for you and your family?
Perhaps you could take your business to the next level?

When Pinterest changed their algorithm, I realised I needed help to get my traffic back on track. Jen helped me pinpoint the things I'd overlooked, showed me where I could improve in how I used it and helped me pull a plan together that I could manage myself. Within a couple of months, my traffic was back on track and it's only growing. I couldn't be more pleased with the help I received! Kimberly swoonworthy.com

Not at all. You can do it as quickly or as slowly as you like, just follow one module after the other for maximum success.

Yes! As new information becomes available or if and when Pinterest changes, I’ll add extra and updated information to the course.
