Making Money with Pinterest

You can ramp up your income to two grand per month as a Pinterest social media manager,

despite how out-there this may seem right now.  It’s all in the tools that you are going to rely on to make it work for you.

When you start working as a Pinterest social media manager, you will be managing Pinterest for other companies and brands that you support as an individual.  You won’t need to sell your soul or support companies or brands that you don’t like.  That’s part of the beauty of it. You can book multiple clients and make several thousand dollars per month just in doing this alone. Yes, you can get paid to play on social media! I’ve been doing this for years and can easily tell you that this is as authentic as any other online-based job out there. Here’s how to get started as a Pinterest account manager…

Getting Started as  a Pinterest Manager

First, you have to set your pricing. 

Treat this like a business because it truly is.  You should put some effort into this part of your business because it can define you.  Try to keep your pricing competitive but still make sure that you’re, you know, actually making a profit off of it as well.

You’ll also want to make a list of the services you’ll provide revolving around Pinterest because you don’t necessarily have to do everything yourself. Here are some examples to get you started:

  • Creating Pinterest-friendly images: If you’re used Pinterest a lot — which you should if you are looking at becoming a social media manager on the platform — you’ll know the difference between a good Pinterest image and a bad one.  So, put that knowledge and experience to work in a formal way by creating Pinterest-friendly images.
  • Organizing and optimizing the Pinterest account: There are a lot of companies out there who just don’t know how to organize or optimize their Pinterest accounts.  They don’t have the time or energy to put the time into it.  If that’s something that you love to do, put a price tag on it and start enjoying the benefits of working with the platform that you love!  When you do it on behalf of other brands or companies, you can know that you are doing it for the right reasons, too.
  • Reaching out to join group boards: Group boards are going to be lucrative places for companies and brands.  You can reach out to these group boards on their behalf so that you can keep an ear and eye on everything that they need to know. 
  • Growing the Pinterest fanbase for the company: Companies need fans, so when you find a company that you can support for all of the right reasons, they will pay you to bring in your kind of people.  This can be fun and exciting.
  • All of the above: If you want to do all of these things, consider putting together a package so that you can help companies and brand get a really great online boost in all of the ways that matter.  Plus, you can look at the idea, too, of allowing them to cherry-pick their own package if you think it’ll help.

A note on pricing over time, however.  When I first started, I would do a package for clients (like the one above) and charge around $300/month.  This was a price that chose based on the fact that I was still a beginner and trying to figure out what I wanted to do.  As my experience grew and I strengthened my skillsets, I began charging $600 to $1,200/month.  Realistically speaking, you should pick a price that you’re okay with.  And don’t be afraid to bump it up as you get more experience as I did.  You are worth the money, remember that.  Companies often have deep pockets, so don’t be afraid to put the price tag out that you’re comfortable with.

Next up, get clients.

How do you do that?  It’s not as hard as you would think, thankfully.  The easiest and fastest way to do it right is to go to freelancer banks like Upwork or Freelancer. However, it is important to know that this is NOT the most lucrative way to get your name out there. Upwork and similar job sites tend to pay very low to their freelancers. If your rate is $600/month, expect to possibly work jobs at a 50% discount or less.  But, it will get your name out there and sometimes simply knowing that you are accessing clients that you wouldn’t otherwise have access to can be worth the frustration of potentially losing money,

I see Pinterest jobs all the time that request a budget of $50 to $100/month, so you’ll have to determine just how low you want to go, and what your true minimums really are.  Know your worth and narrow in on your parameters to find quality, well-paying gigs.  That’s what this is all about, after all!

Lastly, work and get paid.

Before you start your gig, make sure you clearly communicate with the client so that you know what they want and they know what you can offer. Make sure you understand their expectations and keep strong communication throughout the process as well.  This will go a long way to showing your professionalism and dedication to doing a good job on the tasks that they are paying you to do.

Success Tips

Here are some winning tips I’ve come across along the way that I would like to share with you.  Some you may like, and some you may not.  Either way, they’re here to help:

  • Get organized: When you are running a business, you absolutely have to be organized.  From deadlines to records to invoices and customer details, everything should be clearly organized and easy to find.  If you need to hire someone to help you do this, do it.  It really is critical to your short- and long-term success.
  • Don’t overbook yourself (but if you do, outsource): Know what your maximums are per week and make sure you don’t overbook yourself.  It will burn you out and you’ll look unprofessional, which isn’t a good thing when it comes to impressing customers.  If it does happen — it has to all of us, especially at first — outsource it to someone you trust.
  • Clearly communicate your objectives with your client: Make sure you always understand each other and that there is open communication both ways.  It will show your professional and eye for detail.
  • Don’t undercut yourself on pay: Your skills, time and effort and worth more than most of us think at first.  Pay yourself what you deserve, and don’t skimp on it.  You need to see that you are worth it.
  • Be consistent: From prices to deadlines to anything else, be consistent from project to project and customer to customer.  This will show your professionalism and it may also help companies refer you on to others when they see that you’re worth it.

Final Thoughts

Real money can be had on Pinterest, don’t be fooled by those telling you that it’s just a scam.  That being said, you will seriously have to put the time into learning how to do it right, just the same as any other legitimate business out there.

Consider this…

1 client=4 hours/week at $600/mo.

3 clients=12 hours/week at $1,800/mo

6 clients=24 hours/week at $3,600/mo

Work part-time, earn full-time income.  The numbers are right there to show it to you!  Are you doing this now, or something similar? If so, share your best practices down below in comments and show other readers that it really is possible when you put your mind to it.

Psst…if you have your own blog, you can make even more money with Pinterest. I get most of my traffic from Pinterest and it’s helped me make $10K+ monthly!
