Make a Full-Time Income Running Other People’s Pinterest Accounts (Yep, For Real!)

 
So you’re thinking about becoming a Pinterest Manager? AWESOME!
 
If you’re anything like me when I was starting out, that probably means you have a zillion and one questions right about now.¬†Like… What do Pinterest Managers actually do? And how do I start offering Pinterest services? And – most importantly – how much money can I really expect to make?
 
You have questions, I have answers ūüėČ

So What do Pinterest Managers do, anyways?

Lots of things! Simply put, Pinterest Managers manage, oversee, and grow Pinterest accounts for other people.
 
However, they can also branch out and specialize in various areas, like:
 
+ Graphic design of pins and creation of pin templates
+ Setting up Pinterest accounts from scratch
+ Making over existing Pinterest accounts
+ Improving Pinterest SEO
 
The options really are endless! Anything that involves Pinterest is a Pinterest Manager’s domain.
 

How do you become a Pinterest Manager?

Simple: You make the decision to offer Pinterest services, and you start marketing yourself as a Pinterest Manager! ūüėČ
 
Okay, it’s a bit¬†more complex than that. But seriously, my biggest piece of advice is to bite the bullet and put yourself out there. Start building up your Pinterest knowledge, learn everything you can about setting up and growing a business, and start taking on clients!
 

What makes a good Pinterest Manager?

Above all else, a love for Pinterest and in-depth knowledge of the platform is a must. Your clients will be turning to you as an expert, and you should be ready and comfortable filling those shoes.   
 
In addition to being super-Pinterest-savvy, successful Pinterest Managers are also:
 
+ Professional
+ Hard-working
+ Ambitious
+ Friendly
+ Flexible
+ Personable
+ Confident
+ Organized
 
You should also have basic design skills, good grammar and spelling, and an eye for spotting high-quality, share-worthy pins.
 

How much money do Pinterest Managers make? & How much time is involved?

I’ve chosen to answer these two questions together because the answers are intertwined. In other words…
 
The more time you spend growing your Pinterest biz and completing client projects, the more money you’ll be able to make. The more projects you complete, the more money you can expect to bring in as a Pinterest Manager.
 
If you’re looking for a “concrete” answer, it’s definitely not over-stepping to say that many Pinterest Managers comfortably bring in $3K-$5K per month. If you decide to expand your team and take on an assistant or two, that figure can increase substantially.
 

What are the pros and cons of being a Pinterest Manager?

Like any job, being a Pinterest Manager has its perks and pitfalls. I’ll start with the cons, because I honestly don’t think there are many hard-and-fast ones.
 
One potential con is that the algorithm that governs Pinterest changes frequently, which means you have to analyze, test, and adjust your strategies relatively often.
 
On the bright side, it means that your job never gets boring! ūüėČ
 
Another con is that,¬†like a lot of jobs in today’s day-and-age,¬†Pinterest Managers do¬†have to interact and deal with other people in somewhat of a “customer service” role. Needless to say, not every person you interact with online will be as much of a gem as you are.
 

The Pros

Next let’s talk pros, because I have a feeling you’re going to like these ūüėȬ†
 
1. You can work from anywhere.
 
Your home office, your living room couch, the beach… The options are endless and the choice is yours! As long as you have Wi-Fi, you’re set.
 
Even better is that Pinterest has a great mobile app, so you can complete a lot of your work while you’re out and about doing other non-worky things (on the bike at the gym, waiting for the commercials to end on TV, riding shotgun in the car, etc.)
 
2. You’re the boss.
 
No one dictates what you do, when you do it, or how you do it, but YOU.
 
You get to set your own rates and decide how many clients and projects to take on –¬†essentially deciding exactly how much money you make. You also get to decide who¬†you work with by saying “yay” or “nay” to prospective clients who come your way. Freedom, baby!
 
3. You get to charge premium rates.
 
Because your services and expertise are specialized – as opposed to general VA work or general social media management – you can charge premium prices. The more “niched” your biz and services are, the more value you’re providing and the higher your rates can be.¬†
 
4. It’s super fun!
 
I mean seriously, who doesn’t love Pinterest?!
 
Even after years of pinning in my personal life and years of pinning “professionally”, I’m still not sick of Pinterest. I think if I let myself, I could get sucked into the Pinterest vortex for DAYS (and I know I’m not the only one!)
 

Do people really pay for this kind of thing?

Yes, they really, really do!
 
Within 60 days of starting my Pinterest biz, I had secured a consistent, full-time income. And I want the exact same thing for you!
 
…Which is why I created my new ecourse, the Pinterest Manager Masterclass. To help ambitious babes like you build their work-from-anywhere Pinterest biz and start earning a steady paycheck on their own terms.
 
The masterclass is now open for registration! You can join me and a bunch of amazing soon-to-be Pinterest Managers in the course by clicking here. See you inside!
