One thing I am certain of is that managing social platforms like Facebook, Twitter and all the other socials are not the same as managing a Pinterest account. It works completely different.
If social media managers decide to offer Pinterest account management services they owe it to their customers to learn how to use Pinterest. It is so scientific. Most people who I see managing accounts don’t really understand and correctly use the depth and breadth of Pinterest.
Pinning for personal reasons doesn’t make you qualified to manage Pinterest accounts for business. It’s not the same thing.
In my How to Become A Pinterest Account Manager program I teach everything you need to know about how to be a successful Pinterest account manager.
Part of my motivation for creating the program was to help people avoid the mistakes I made. Pinterest is complex, there are a lot of traps and pitfalls and if managers are not careful they will make mistakes which will cost them time, damage their reputation with their bosses and cost their company sales.
My advice is that taking a step by step course that is like a blue print for success is the smartest way to learn because it’s a proven. That is why I made the courses and am in the business.

If you really want to manage Pinterest professionally for your own company, for your boss or as a Pinterest account management agency now is a great time to learn how to do that at the expert level because Pinterest is still new.
My How to Become A Pinterest Account Manager course is packed with the most current and up to date, step-by-step, easy to follow checklists and secrets that I use to get business and to manage business accounts successfully.
For the first time ever I’ve decided to share all of my trade secrets and show you exactly how I was able to earn a six figure income in only my second year of managing Pinterest accounts for brands and businesses.
9 reasons why you should take this course:
- Learn from a Pinterest recognized expert: Pinterest has acknowledged me as Pinterest expert.
- I have gotten my business onto the first page of Google in organic search using Pinterest. Just type “Pinterest expert” or “Pinterest consultant” right now and you’ll see what I mean.
No other Pinterest expert has shown the ability to do that. What that means to you is I know how to rank high to get more traffic that leads to more sales. And I show you how too.
- I earn a six digit income doing this. I must be doing it right or they wouldn’t keep hiring me.
- It is essential that you get mentorship from me directly. So I’m adding two 30 minute one on one coaching sessions with me (value $400). Get all of your questions answered directly and quickly!
- You receive one year access to the course materials. Go at your own pace.
- You receive three months email support from me. If by chance I didn’t cover something you were looking for just ask me. I am committed to your success!
- I live and breathe Pinterest every day. I’m not just a wannabe blogger that talks about Pinterest. I manage accounts, I coach business owners daily, and I’m always learning and finding new ways to make things easier, better, faster. Yes, I’m very driven and a perfectionist (that’s why I named my company White Glove) because I believe in helping my customers the way I want to be helped. Don’t you deserve the best?
- You receive a 30 day money back guarantee. Ask yourself this question right now: What do you have to lose?
If you didn’t learn anything new from my course or you did not find my advice and coaching sessions valuable then naturally you deserve to get every dollar back.
If you want to earn more you’ve got to learn more.
Do it now and avoid letting your competition get ahead of you.
Do it now and become a more valuable member of your marketing team.
Avoid trial and error and wasting time. The consequences are lost sales. No one can afford that.
