Pinterest virtual assistance turned into this new opportunity which I never thought - in a million years - would be a thing.
— Kristin Larsen

Episode Summary

Hey, everyone! In this episode, I’m joined by Kristin Larsen: Pinterest expert, course creator, and founder of Believe In a Budget. Blogging wasn’t an easy journey for Kristin until she discovered the power of Pinterest as a search engine to drive traffic to her websites. As she gained visibility, other bloggers began reaching out to her for her Pinterest strategies. The interest allowed her to first become a Pinterest virtual assistant, and later to create Pinterest Presence.

Her course is a self-paced program that equips students with the technical training to leverage Pinterest, including Pin design, Pinterest SEO, and Pin scheduling. Check out this episode to hear Kristin’s journey from blogger to VA to course creator, and how you can use her strategies to skyrocket your own traffic.
