PINNING PERFECT IS NOW CLOSED TO NEW STUDENTS.
(UPDATED DECEMBER 2021)
Grow your traffic and audience with the magical powers of Pinterest
(they’re not so magical once you understand them, but they FEEL like magic)
What’s the worst advice out there about growing your blog or biz?
"If you build it, they will come."
Your content could be magazine-worthy and your products could be genius, but getting people to your site is harder than you ever imagined it would be. Whew do I feel your pain!
Let me guess. Does any of these sound like you?
You built it, but they aren’t coming. You’re insanely passionate about your blog or business, with dreams of growing a big audience in order to ____(insert your dream goal here). Instead, you’re struggling to get people onto your site at all, not to mention struggling to reach your goals.
You hear everyone talking about Pinterest and how it’s sending them traffic in droves, but you just aren’t seeing it for yourself. You’ve followed some tips about Pinterest growth and even implemented some suggestions from like-minded peeps within Facebook groups, but you can’t seem to get the fabled Pinterest traffic you keep hearing about.
You’re frustrated with the amount of time you’re spending trying to figure Pinterest out. You’re pinning like a mad woman, reading tutorials left and right, trying every technique under the sun, and following people religiously hoping to boost your traffic. It's exhausting and leaving you less time to write, interact with your community, or even spend time with those who matter to you.
You get confused by the conflicting recommendations regarding Pinterest strategies. Are you supposed to delete pins, join a bunch of group boards, and schedule pins? And just how much should you be pinning your content anyway?
Is your head nodding yet? Thought so.
There’s no need to spin out of control with this stuff. I know it's easy to waste hours trying to figure out a strategy! But if you're on this page, you're unhappy with the traffic you're getting to your website PERIOD. And you're hoping that Pinterest is the answer.
Lucky for you, it is.
Instead of time-wasting, picture this happening...
You built it and they DO come. From Pinterest. With a solid understanding of how to get your ideal visitor to click over from Pinterest, they’re coming to your site in droves. And loving what they see.
You finally see what the fuss was about with Pinterest. Your traffic is growing every month and you know how to capture seasonal moments for big spikes in traffic.
You’ve got more time back in your week and are STILL seeing more traffic. Instead of searching for the golden tip that’s gonna change it all, you have a proven strategy that changed it all. You can spend that extra time writing more kick-booty content, interacting with your community, or spending quality time with those who matter to you.
You can move along when you see a bad piece of Pinterest advice (because you now have "bad Pinterest advice radar") and don’t have to waste your time testing it out. No more overthinking and second guessing. You’re a confident Pinterest rock star.
Yep, with a step-by-step system in place and some knowledge about how Pinterest REALLY works, you're finally gonna flip it (and reverse it)… sorry I quote music a lot. :)
That system? Pinning Perfect, a 9-module online course created for bloggers and small biz owners.
It’s time for you to finally learn what all the Pinterest hoopla is about so you can skyrocket your page views and grow your audience.
More traffic to your website equals:
- More people signing up for your email list
- More people clicking your affiliate links
- More brands wanting to work with you because of your higher traffic (which we all know isn’t the end all be all, but brands do love sites with lots of visitors)
So many bloggers and biz owners either ignore Pinterest entirely (because they don't understand how it can work for them) or treat it like a social media platform. Well, I've got news for you: Pinterest is a search engine.
Pinterest doesn't work like a social media platform; it works like a discovery tool. Whereas typical social media platforms are all about sharing your past or present (what you ate today, what you're doing now, and so on), Pinterest is about your future state. Think of Pinterest as not just a search engine, but a search engine that helps you discover ideas, inspiration, and advice for something you want to do, try, or buy in the future. Even if that future is a few minutes from now.
You want a chunk of the millions of people searching on Pinterest to discover YOUR content and promptly click over to your site.
You can make that happen with a little Pinning Perfect in your pocket. (I did that for the alliteration.)
What do you get in Pinning Perfect?
- Instant access to 9 modules
- Video tutorials on everything from Google Analytics to Canva
- Worksheets, spreadsheets, and templates for better pinning
In addition, we have technical tutorials for both WordPress and Blogger users so you get step-by-step instruction along the way.
What exactly will you learn in Pinning Perfect?
Module 1: Laying the Foundation for Pinterest Success
Learn the two slightly techy things you should do before you get started on Pinterest (don’t worry - we show you how). We'll focus in on what matters (and the surprising things that don’t matter) when building your Pinterest profile and cover how the Smart Feed works. With this information, you'll be able to jump right into the course and start working on the things that will start sending you Pinterest traffic.
Module 2: Creating Pin Descriptions that Drive Traffic
Learn once and for all how to write epic pin descriptions that result in people coming to your website. We show you how to find the right keywords (no, it’s not through Google) as well as a special trick to get the right pin description pinned from your website. If there ever was a part of Pinterest to master, this is it.
Module 3: Creating Killer Images for Pinterest
Create beautiful, best-in-class pins… even if you aren’t a photographer or graphic designer! Learn how to streamline the pin creation process so you aren’t designing pins for hours on end. Plus, we’ll show you tricks to make multiple pins FAST.
We also cover idea pins, which are becoming more and more popular on Pinterest. NEW UPDATE FOR IDEA PINS COMING MID-DECEMBER 2021.
Module 4: Using Boards to Grow Your Traffic
Oh my, have boards changed! They aren’t as important to Pinterest users as you think they are, BUT they are important for YOU. Get the inside scoop on boards and what you need to worry about for traffic-driving success.
Module 5: Making Your Blog Pinterest-Friendly
Generating mind-blowing Pinterest traffic isn’t just about getting people to click pins over on Pinterest. It’s about your existing website visitors (or people coming FROM Pinterest) actually pinning your content too. So make it easy for them. That person with 30 followers and a pin icon for a profile image just might send you thousands of page views (yep, we’ve seen it happen).
Module 6: Hacking Your Way to Pinnable Content
There are a few simple ways that you can quickly and easily create content that will do well on Pinterest, even if you are not an expert in the topic you're writing about. We'll cover them!
Module 7: Putting It All Together
Everything you do in the course leads up to this: a clear method for pinning that'll drive traffic to your website. Find out how many pins a day you should be pinning (hint: it’s not 100, that’s for sure) and most importantly, what ratio works for pinning your own content versus content from others.
Module 8: Doing It Better and Faster
Once you know how the strategy works (and why it works), it’s time to implement what you learned in the most efficient way possible. This module covers Tailwind, Tailwind Tribes, and special pinning groups.
Module 9: Analytics, Baby!
Take charge of those analytics! We know you hate figuring out what all those numbers REALLY mean, so we break it down for you. Learn how to use Google Analytics, Pinterest Analytics, and even Tailwind to determine what’s working and what’s not. Plus we show you how to install a cool dashboard and report in Google Analytics to get the most important insights in just a click.
37 Pin Templates in Canva and InDesign
Blog Clarity partnered with Basil + Bark to bring Pinning Perfect students 37 beautiful pin templates. There are pin templates for 1-3 images plus a few templates for those offering freebies on their website. This will save you so much time!
$30 Credit for Tailwind (new customers only)
Tailwind and I worked out a deal to give Pinning Perfect students a $30 credit on their Plus plan. That means either an annual plan for $89 or 2 months free- both equal $30 off. This is for new students who've never signed up for a referral before with Tailwind.
11 Gift Guide Templates + Gift Guide Catalog for Canva and InDesign
If you aren't making gift guides for the holiday season, you're missing out! These templates from Basil and Bark make it super easy to create gift guide pins. This even comes with 21 pages of templates to build a gift guide catalog for your website!
Pinterest Holiday Quick Start Guide
It's a 23-page guide chock-full of insight and ideas to get your traffic skyrocketing in Q4 (that's October - December ).
Some awesomeness we cover:
- The mind-blowing way to repurpose non-holiday content (we're not exaggerating - you'll be able to churn out content fast!)
- Ideas for creating multiple pins per post.
- "Power Tips" filled with bite-sized, actionable insight
- A special section just for SHOP OWNERS
- Best-in-class holiday season examples

Who is Pinning Perfect for?
Beginner, intermediate, or advanced bloggers who want more traffic so they can grow their email list, sell more product, or command higher rates when working with brands. Even seasoned bloggers who use Pinterest for business have seen boosts in traffic once they learned these proven strategies.
Shop owners who also have blogs that tie into their shops. We have hundreds of Teachers Pay Teachers shop owners in Pinning Perfect and other shop owners too. Many of them with ONLY a shop have been successful too, but the MOST successful ones also have blogs where they provide their target audience with valuable content.
Virtual assistants or social media managers for influencers. Give your clients a traffic boost by learning tried-and-true Pinterest strategies. You'll help them grow their audiences, boost their income, and generally find you indispensable.
Bloggers and biz owners who aren't sure if Pinterest works for their niche. If you're starting to wonder if Pinterest works just for people who blog about crafts, foods, and home decor, wonder no more. ANYONE can benefit from Pinterest. In fact, in the course we cover ways to turn your existing and new content into something click-worthy, all while staying true to your passion.
Who’s it NOT for?
This course isn’t for you if you’re just blogging as a hobby and don’t need the serious growth you could see from Pinterest. Keep saving those recipes, crafts, and other great ideas. You just don't need a strategy for it.
This course isn’t for you if you think Pinterest provides instant results. Pinterest is a SEARCH engine. And it can take 3-6 months to see big results. What you WILL see instantly is what makes Pinterest really work for bloggers and small biz owners. Through detailed lessons and videos, you'll be pretty dang giddy about what Pinterest can do.
Why Are You Discontinuing This Course?
We are ready to launch a new course on working with brands, but as two people who teach courses as a "side hustle," we need the time to focus on our next course. We've faithfully taught this course since 2014 and we're ready to pursue something new!
Does This Mean You Believe Pinterest Isn't Worth It Any More?
Definitely not! We DO know the old days of mega Pinterest traffic isn't a reality anymore. But Pinterest can still bring traffic to your site if you learn basic principles of images, descriptions, and analyzing YOUR data. There's also a new element of Pinterest with idea pins that are promising for building a community.
We'd never encourage people to put "all their eggs in one basket" but Pinterest is a great marketing tool!
How long do I have access to the course?
You have access for at least a year but really it's as long as Blog Clarity exists! Even though the course is closing to new students after 12/31, you'll have access to all the lessons. You'll also gain access to our private Facebook group, which is staying open until January 31.
How Does the Course Work?
Once you sign up, you'll receive INSTANT access to all the units of the course. Go through them as slow or fast as you'd like. You can mark lessons complete too so it's easy to keep track at where you are in the course content.
Pinterest is always changing. Is the course updated?
We last updated the course in August 2021 BUT we're making one final update in mid-December!
Do you cover Promoted Pins?
No, we prefer to show how you can grow using organic strategies, especially since you're already paying for the course!
Do You Offer a Money-Back Guarantee?
Because the course is being discontinued and is priced at a steep discount, there are no refunds.
Are you ready for a traffic boost?
If you're getting even the least bit excited about right now, then come join us!
You'll be psyched when you see the strategy and tactics that REALLY work on Pinterest.
