You may have heard of Pinterest and dabbled with it to give you inspiration and ideas. But did you know you can make serious money on Pinterest as a Pinterest Virtual Assistant a.k.a a Pinterest VA?
There are 88 million US Pinterest users and half of Pinterest users earn $50K or greater per year and 83% of weekly pinners have made a purchase based on the content they see from brands on Pinterest.
Why should this matter?
Because Pinterest users have money to spend, which means if a product or service is on Pinterest, a business can gain valuable customers.
Speaking from personal experience, I started using Pinterest in January and it skyrocketed traffic to my website from all over the world in 2 months.
A great Pinterest VA can take a business from being average to being seen by thousands online.
With this in mind, business owners are willing to pay Pinterest managers to manage their Pinterest accounts and drive traffic to their websites.
I interviewed one of the top Pinterest VA course providers to pick their brains and learn about the benefits of working as a Pinterest Virtual Assistant.

What is a Pinterest Virtual Assistant?
A Pinterest VA is someone that helps a client start, grow, and/or manage their presence on the Pinterest platform.
Business owners are busy so they hire Pinterest managers to look after the Pinterest side, so they can use their valuable time to focus on their business.
How much can a Pinterest VA generally make?
It really depends on a few factors such amount of experience, level of expertise, services offered, the level of client they’re looking to work with, etc.
Having said that, most Pinterest VAs easily average $30 to $50 per hour (or more!) over time.
Our goal is to help students develop a side hustle that earns them an additional $500 to $1,000 or more per month. Some students decide to take it much further than that!

What kinds of tasks are Pinterest Virtual Assistants in charge of?
Pinterest VAs do everything from pin design, scheduling, reviewing analytics, keyword research, and more!
Here are some examples of what you can offer and the prices, but make sure to tell the client that rates ‘start at’ these prices, as they may need a customized tailored service that will cost more.

Can Pinterest VA’s work anywhere in the world?
Of course! All it really takes to do work as a Pinterest VA is to have access to a computer and reliable internet connection.
We’ve had students from all over the world take our course – they can work with clients in their local community, home country, or worldwide.
We’ve entered into a global economy and the internet has made it possible for VAs and clients to work together regardless of their location!

Are people actually hiring Pinterest Virtual Assistants?
You bet! Most businesses would benefit from having a presence on Pinterest.
Some already do and are looking to hire help to take growing/managing their Pinterest account off of their plate and others aren’t on the platform, but realize they need to be.
An example of this is clients who are already on other social media platforms like Instagram or Facebook but haven’t made the move into Pinterest just yet but realise they need to.
In either scenario a Pinterest VA can help – they can step in and take over or even improve a client’s account or help them to start from scratch.
For example, Krista took the course and helped a client grow their traffic by 1,233%. Amazing.
