Yes, you really can make money from home as a Pinterest virtual assistant.
I had already begun seeing some interest in VAs who specialize just in Pinterest tasks on freelance sites such as Upwork, but the info I found at the Hokey Handbook that made me want to take a closer look (the class is closed as of this writing, but you can get on the waiting list by clicking the above link).
Not long about I answered 20 Question About Working from Home as a Virtual Assistant. It’s becoming a popular option for many people, especially moms who want to stay home but need to earn money. (BTW, she has this great free book you have to get: 150 VA Services You Can Offer. Yup, I did say free for signing up to her list.._
Virtual assisting can be a catch all type of service, but it mainly offers administrative support to busy small businesses and entrepreneurs. That support can be anything from reading and organizing emails to providing tech support.
It’s a business that can be billed for by the hour or by the project. And specialization is one of the ways people earn the bigger bucks.
But Pinterest VA?
Oh yes, Pinterest. It’s becoming the go-to place to get notices for small businesses in blogs in all types of niches. It’s essentially a search engine and more and more people are finding it their number one way of promotion. And those already busy folks need help. And that’s where a Pinterest experienced VA comes in. Someone who can create awesome click-worthy profiles, eye-catching pinnable images and who can pin… a lot!
Of course, you have to understand why all of that’s important and how to do it, but if you’re already a big Pinterest lover you are already a step ahead. And what you don’t know, you can learn. Head over to my Virtual Assistant Board on Pinterest and click through to read some of the VA articles I’ve been finding. There’s a lot of information already there.
One of the most important tasks you’ll need to polish is how to make the most of the pinning schedulers such as Viraltag, Tailwind and Boardbooster. If you’re not already using one of the services for yourself, you can always check out their free trials to learn more.
Of course, there’s a whole other host of skills you’ll want to learn about and how to get clients, as well as determine a rate. Again, I think that’s where Gina’s Pinterest VA Course is a great place to start with five modules, and interactive workbook and lots and lots of ideas and resources.
Oh, and don’t forget about starting your own blog that’s specific to your new VA business.
And remember don’t forget to grab that free book from Horkey’s Handbook: 150 VA Services You Can Offer.
Pinterest is already bringing lots of success to bloggers and businesses so it only makes sense that the need for virtual assistants who specialize in Pinterest will increase, too. If you’ve been wanting a business of your own, or just looking for a way to earn money from home, then here’s an idea you need to explore.
