Have you ever considered becoming a Pinterest Virtual Assistant or Pinterest Manager?

You’ve most likely heard of social media managers or maybe you already are one. Well, these days each social platform requires a different set of skills and it’s tough to keep up with all of them. Because of this, many social media managers have started to specialize, usually choosing the platform they enjoy working on the most.

Whether you have experience or not, starting a side hustle as a Pinterest Virtual Assistant (PVA) is fun, rewarding and lucrative. Scan through the following list and if several of them resonate with you, you may want to consider becoming a PVA!

Do you…

  • love Pinterest
  • have an interest in marketing
  • want to start a fun, rewarding side hustle with growth potential
  • enjoy designing imagery or want to learn
  • like to research a variety of topics
  • need a second income
  • enjoy helping others
  • want to work from home (or anywhere)
  • like to be organized
  • manage your time pretty well
  • consider yourself to be ambitious and motivated
  • think you’d enjoy being part of a community of entrepreneurial minded creators

Excited? You should be, because you may have just found the perfect side hustle!

Pinterest virtual assistant services are in HUGE demand right now. Why? Because small business owners, bloggers and brands are recognizing the incredible traffic-generating power of Pinterest.

You see, up until recently, Pinterest has mostly been considered “social media.” Ironically, it’s not really social! In fact, it’s more of a search engine than anything else. Actually, it’s more like a mini visual Google.

Think about how you use Pinterest. You might enter a word or two in the search bar. Or maybe you prefer searching with hashtags. Or using the beautiful guided search. Or perhaps you scroll for a while before doing specific searches. However you prefer to use the platform, the point is, people SEARCH on Pinterest and wait for the results their search brings back. This is much different behavior than you find on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter.

All that to say, Pinterest is finally being recognized for what it really is, and how the power of visual search drives traffic for businesses. And what online business person doesn’t want tons of traffic?!

So how do you become a Pinterest VA? It’s not hard, but it does require a decent amount of self-education. There are tons of resources available for learning – some free, others paid. Some high quality, others… well, maybe not as high. 😉

Fortunately, there is a course geared specifically toward learning how to become a Pinterest VA. All other Pinterest courses (at the time of this post) teach different aspects of using the platform to market a business, but not how to become a Pinterest VA and turn what you learn into a side hustle or full-time business.

So, on one hand, the PVA course focuses not only on how to use Pinterest to drive traffic and all that goes into doing so, but it also teaches important aspects specifically geared toward a virtual assistant who wants to focus on this platform and offer services to prospective clients. For example…

  • what to charge for your services
  • where to find clients
  • how to pitch your services to prospects
  • how to onboard new clients
  • ways to scale your business
  • and tons more

All other courses we’ve found (and many of which we’ve taken) are geared toward marketing a business on Pinterest, not offering services to help others market their business on the platform. So topics like the following might be covered, depending on which course you are looking at…

  • setting up business account
  • verifying your website or blog
  • when to use rich pins
  • setting up boards
  • best practices for pin design
  • SEO and strategy
  • and so on

The PVA course each of us at Pinning Pro completed is appropriately called How To Become A Pinterest VA Today. It’s only available a few times a year BUT you can sign up for a free one hour introductory workshop. The workshop walks through…

  • What makes someone a great candidate for becoming a PVA
  • Why Pinterest VA help is in high demand
  • Types of services to offer 
  • How to get clients
  • What to charge
  • How to invoice clients
  • The PVA community and networking

 The workshop also comes with a complimentary workbook where you can take notes as you listen to the workshop to help you decide if becoming a Pinterest Virtual might be a good fit for you.

We’ve taken a lot of Pinterest courses – free and paid. In our experience, this particular course is like getting a turnkey business rather than a course on how to market a business on Pinterest. The foundational business-building information is unparalleled and the training is kept up to date – which is challenging to do with how frequently Pinterest makes changes to the platform. It’s also a course we return to often as we become more advanced in our business.
