How can I make money with Pinterest?

Pinterest is an endless feed of inspiration for crafts, fashion, DIY’s, recipes, and so much more. With over 459 million active users, Pinterest is the place to be for small businesses. This is where you come in as a Pinterest Virtual Assistant.

Pinterest Virtual Assistants provide a service to a business virtually, meaning you can work anywhere in the world to do this.

A Pinterest Virtual Assistant can be in charge of many things, including:

  • Pinterest pin scheduling and management

  • Audits

Essentially, you are in charge of helping a business get seen on the Pinterest platform.

How much do Pinterest Virtual Assistants earn?

Pinterest Virtual Assistants are in charge of setting up their own rates. Some Pinterest VA’s make $4,000+ a month, while others make $1,000-$2,000 a month. It really depends on what you charge, what kind of services you offer, and how many clients you have.

Take a look at Tara, a Become A Pinterest VA alumni. She has 18 clients (10 being Pinterest services) and has an average monthly revenue of $7,500.

What type of person should become a Pinterest Virtual Assistant?

This job is great for someone who isn’t afraid of hard work, loves Pinterest, and wants to work from home. Working as a Pinterest VA is a great fit for stay at home moms or dads, tech savvy retirees, or existing social media managers or VA’s that want extra work.

I recently interviewed Megan, a solopreneur who works full-time as a Pinterest Virtual Assistant and travels the world. She took the Become A Pinterest VA Course back in 2018 and now has 15 clients.

Technical side of working as a Pinterest Virtual Assistant 

Working as a Pinterest Virtual Assistant means you need to have a reliable internet connection. Most phone carriers also have Personal HotSpot as an affordable add on, which helps you get internet pretty much anywhere. 

Tools a Pinterest Virtual Assistant needs

To succeed as a Pinterest Virtual Assistant, you may need the following tools depending on the services you offer:

  • Canva (free or pro version at $10/month)
  • Tailwind (free for 2 months, $15/month after)
  • Invoice software like QuickBooks (typically $12.50/month with sale)

It’s important to remember that the tools are free in the beginning, and you have the option to upgrade to paid plans in the future once you start making money.

Real life testimonials

There are many successful women and men working as Pinterest Virtual Assistants. However, the field still isn’t saturated at all. That’s because there are over 30 million businesses in the United States alone, and those businesses need help getting seen on Pinterest.

Here are a couple great examples of successful Pinterest Virtual Assistants.

Dama is a Become A Pinterest VA alumni who earns over $1,000 a month with her Pinterest VA business. 

Courtney is another Pinterest VA alumni and has over 10 clients so far. She’s found all of her clients from the Pinterest Post Community, which you’ll hear about more in Become A Pinterest VA Course.
