When I started being a Social Media Virtual Assistant, I was overwhelmed which one that I would like to focus on. I want to be able to study one social media platform one at a time so I can be knowledgeable and offer it as a high-end service.
So far I have worked extensively with travel bloggers. I have noticed that Pinterest is a big deal for them but for others too. When you go to Facebook, there are several groups for different types of bloggers and online entrepreneurs who want to drive more traffic into their website using Pinterest. That is very cool, right?!
Pinterest has 175 million monthly active users around the world. It is interesting to know how others are benefitting from this platform. Before becoming a Virtual Assistant, I used my Pinterest account to collect inspirations for so many things. My main goal was just to repin pins about traveling, cool gadgets, beautiful web designs, and so much more.
When I decided to take my Pinterest skills to another level, I have decided to enroll in Kristin and Gina's How to Become a Pinterest VA course.
Since joining the course by Kristin and Gina, I have been able to improve my Pinterest account, understand how I can help my clients better, and offer Pinterest Packages. Well, that is not all! Pinterest has given me a broader perspective on how to use social media efficiently.
I have pursued becoming a Pinterest Virtual Assistant because of the following factors:
1. Enhance Graphic Designing Skills
I have a thirst for learning which led me to become a self-taught graphic and web designer. I simply love creating beautiful images. One of the ways that I get to show it on my work is through Pinterest images. I do get a lot of inspiration from Pinterest too. I also got some designing tips from the Pinterest VA course.
I like that Pinterest is a visual search engine. When you are browsing the pages of a magazine, you will see an image that would be unforgettable. It could be a picture of a dress or pair of shoes. You get drawn to this particular image because it conveys the aesthetic that you love and admire. You would probably buy that product eventually.
It is the same thing with Pinterest. When you design a Pinterest image, you have to make sure that it is visually appealing. You will get repins and eventually click-throughs.
Repins are saves. Clickthroughs are traffic.
You can see immediately what readers like based on the current design trends on Pinterest. I have found out that a lot of bloggers are using Canva in designing their Pinterest images. I have been using it since then and it is an excellent tool. You can also use it for your other social media accounts so it is worth investing your time in learning Canva.
2. Help Clients to Get More Subscribers
I realized that Pinterest traffic will help my clients grow their email list. You are probably wondering how to do this? You have to advice your client to create an opt-in freebie or lead magnet for your target audience. Then, put it on the About You section of their Pinterest account.
These are the examples of a freebie:

I am not only helping my clients with their Pinterest account but also with email marketing! That is amazing! (haha) I believe that you can be more valuable if you exceed the expectations of your clients. You would be a Rockstar VA!
3. Expand Virtual Assistant Business
When you learn something new, you discover more about yourself and what you are capable of doing. I enrolled in the How To Become a Pinterest VA course because I wanted to be knowledgeable about Pinterest. However, I have developed a deeper understanding about the world of social media. Investing my time in becoming a Pinterest VA has led me to explore other services that I can offer.
I am sure that I will be adding more factors on why I love being a Pinterest VA. I hope that you like my insights.
