Have you ever wondered if and how to select the best Pinterest course to boost your blog’s traffic? Are they of any good or just a speculation of information already available for free online? Let see the best reasons why not to choose a simple Pinterest course.
Reasons why not to buy a simple Pinterest course:
Let’s start with a metaphor: What if you went to a posh restaurant, paid a lot and were left with the ingredients and a recipe book to cook there by yourself instead of the chef cooking it and people serving you? You would not find it fair, right? Then you better understand why to never choose a Pinterest course costing hundreds of $ without a personal online consultation.
A fair Pinterest expert will either make a book/course at an lower rate where the student learns by himself using the information sparing him the time to search for this info. Or the expert will be making a higher priced offer where he/she will personally analyse every profile, as I have created in my limited edition mentoring strategy at http://www.thedailyfashioninspiration.com/pinterest-marketing-grow/. Stay away from ridiculously priced courses without personal mentoring. Handing a few templates and videos is not enough and there are plenty of questions that people will have even after watching them.
Growing your Pinterest is not only about practical strategies but also about having a designer telling you what you can change/improve visually. This requires individual advice, so it cannot be learned in a simple course. Do not get carried away by exorbitantly expensive courses that do not also provide personal mentoring. And I will explain why this is important.
Personal Pinterest mentoring means to analyze the client’s profile, to arrange the boards, make custom covers, advice on the quality of pins, advice on the description. Personal advice, not general suggestion as ”A good description should be about your brand. Now make it yourself.” No, that is not ok. An expert should say: I suggest the description to sound like this *gives a real description suited to the client*, not a general example.
Here is a clear example of one of my lovely clients, Ilona. I transformed her profile using custom board covers. My design is to use them where needed, not a full row because that will look too rigid. The minimalist contrast between her branding’s colours and the images emphasize the theme. And it is now all much clearer that her niche is food party and printable. Plus, you can notice the 100 followers growth even if there are fewer pins (I have teached her what to keep, uncluttering her profile)

Here is her honest review of my Pinterest design makeover and personal mentoring:
And another happy client said:
Taking an expensive course without a personal one-on-one online chat with the expert is going to leave your knowledge unchecked. Is the description right? Are the boards ok? Well, too bad, you paid a lot of money and noone is checking. You are on your own. Or pushed into groups of thousands where .. guess what? if you have a question you can: 1. Hope that the owner will answer or 2. hope that someone will answer right. You surely deserve much more.
The smarter alternative:
BUY A COURSE THAT HAS PERSONAL MENTORING IN IT.
