Pinterest is an amazing tool for growing your blog and business! Learning how to use it to its full potential is an absolute must for serious bloggers so here are my top 3 Pinterest courses.
If you’ve been hanging around here for a while, you’ll know that I love Pinterest and use it so much for the blogs that I run. It’s been the main source of traffic and revenue for my businesses and I’m passionate about showing others how they can use it in their business to up their revenue.
According to Hootsuite, Pinterest now has 200 billion monthly searches! This means that there’s so much potential to have readers, and customers, to find you!
It can, however, be so overwhelming when there are so many Pinterest courses out there and you have no idea which one you need for your business.
This post contains affiliate links, which means I receive a commission if you make a purchase through links within this blog post. This occurs at no extra cost to you.
I am going to outline the courses that I’ve taken to help me get to over 1 million combined Pinterest monthly viewers on my accounts. The courses below have all had an impact on my income and I’m so happy to be able to share them with you!
The first Pinterest course that I want to share with you is Pinterest Avalanche from Create and Go. This course has had the most impact on my business and I think it’s a great all-rounder course. It’s perfect for beginners through to more intermediate bloggers.
When I signed up for it, I was unsure that I really had much more Pinterest goodness to get. It turns out I was wrong! Lauren and Alex share how they’ve used Pinterest to take their businesses to the point of earning $100 000 per month (yes, a month not a year).
Not only do they show you the basics but they also dive deep into their own strategies and how they manage their accounts. The strategies that they teach really got my blog over that 100k Pinterest monthly viewers and up to 400k and growing!

Pinteresting Strategies is from Carly at Blogging Like You Mean It. In my opinion, this course is the most underpriced and valuable course out there. She’s been able to bundle up all of her juicy Pinterest knowledge into a jammed packed course.
The main focus of Pinteresting Strategies is that she shows you how she manually pins, meaning how to be successful pinning without using a scheduler like Tailwind. It’s pretty impressive how she maps out how to manually pin.
She’s not at all against using Tailwind (I believe she does use it) but she wants you to know that you can be successful with Pinterest without having to invest in it.

This is a course that I actually got as part of a bundle that I purchased. I love those buys that give you some amazing goodness at a very affordable price!
I love this course so much that I’ve gone on to purchase other products from Monica at Redefining Mom.
What makes this course unique is that it focuses on affiliate marketing within Pinterest. Now, I’m not just talking about creating a pin that goes to an affiliate product but setting up Pinterest funnel centred around affiliate products.
Monica dives deep into both open/close products and evergreen products. She outlines her strategy for all three types of affiliate marketing on Pinterest, direct pins, open/close products and also harnessing the power of email marketing for the evergreen products. I learnt so much from her and have been able to implement some of her strategies with great success. For more information about Pin Practical Influence, then click here.
Looking forward, I’d love to take her Practical Pin Promotions course, she shares her very profitable Pinterest ads strategies. If that’s something you’re interested in, she also has a free course Pin Practical Ads which is very valuable.
This is a shameless plug but if you’re needing help with pin design, as well as making your pin design efforts more streamlined and take less time, then make sure you check out our 20 Pinterest templates. Using them will save you time and give you pins that your readers can’t help but click! For more information and to purchase, click here.
Those 3 Pinterest courses (plus the Pinterest templates) give you really well-rounded strategies to help you to make your Pinterest efforts work for your business. I do believe that they are the 3 key components to Pinterest and I highly recommend that you invest time and money into learning Pinterest from the beginning. One of my biggest regrets in business is not paying to get the knowledge earlier in my online days! It would have saved me so much time and energy!
