How To Be A Pinterest Virtual Assistant
Pinterest is a popular social marketing tool for business owners, bloggers, and affiliate marketers. The problem is it’s time consuming. There are lots of lessons to learn to get pins seen and creating the perfect pinnable images can be tricky. If you know Pinterest well, you may be interested in becoming a Pinterest virtual assistant.
There are plenty of bloggers looking for someone who understands the pinning social media well. You’re just what they need, but they need to find you. Here’s all you need to know about how to be a Pinterest virtual assistant and get found by your target audience.
Set Up and Manage Your Own Pinterest Profile
Don’t worry too much about a website at first. Focus on the social media platform that you want to work within. Make it clear that you know what you’re doing by creating the perfect Pinterest profile. This is more than just putting up a few pretty images.
Your pins need to convert. They need to be repinned regularly and you need to be part of group boards. Your descriptions need to be good and convert viewers into customers/clients.
You can set up a different account to the one that you currently have. However, you will be working from scratch. Consider turning your current profile into your business one.
Set Up Your Virtual Assistant Website
Now it’s time to spend some money on a good website for your business. This needs to follow the same branding as your Pinterest profile. It’s essential that you use the right keywords, which means finding out about the keywords your target audience is using to find someone like you. Use Google AdWords for free to find out this information.
Your website helps to build trust. If you worked with someone who didn’t have a website, you’d question their professionalism, right?
Make Your Pinterest Assistant Services Clear
There are two ways of selling your Pinterest services: either as an account manager or an assistant. You want to be a Pinterest virtual assistant, so you need to make this service clear.
On the Hire Me page of your website, detail the types of services you offer. You’ll need to:
• Make Canva images (or similar) for Pinterest
• Know how to use automation services like Tailwind.
• Understand group boards and how to find/use them
• Write converting gig descriptions
• Monitor the accounts for any comments
• Understand the sharing rule of other people’s pins
•Know all about branding with pins
As an account manager, you’ll also need to watch the analytics and understand more about the profile settings and promotion. If you’re not too sure about this, don’t offer it. Stick to the basic virtual assistant roles for now.
Market Your Skills
Now that you have your website and Pinterest profile set up, it’s time to start marketing. You can use Pinterest for this, but you want to be where your target audience is likely to be. They could be on Facebook, LinkedIn, or search blogs for ideas and help.
It’s important to use a range of marketing techniques. Blog about Pinterest by sharing tips and tricks, while cold calling businesses to offer your services as a Pinterest virtual assistant.
Don’t forget to start pinning. You want to make it clear that you know how Pinterest works and you’re the virtual assistant your target audience needs.
