Pinterest with Ell: One of the biggest ways I’ve grown my blog traffic is by using Pinterest. This amazing platform is my number one tool to grow my website audience and sales. Ell Duclos of Boss Girl Bloggers offers the best Pinterest course to help you grow your Pinterest traffic along with your blog traffic.
I took Ell’s Pinterest course over the summer and found it to be super helpful and informative. I recommend it to anyone looking to grow their blog traffic and audience.
Tailwind: When it comes to Pinterest, it is way different than Instagram in a sense that you do not need a lot of followers to be successful. Instead, it is important to have a large number of monthly viewers because that means more people are likely to click on your pins and go to your website (which means more traffic and sales).
The best way to grow your monthly viewers on Pinterest is by constantly creating new (and attractive) pins and continue to repin from both yourself as well as other pinners. One of the main reasons why I love Tailwind is that is allows me to pin in my sleep. You just schedule your pins for the week and Tailwind does it all for you! If you take Pinterest with Ell, she will go over all of the instructions to get you set up in Tailwind.
From using Tailwind, my monthly views grew from less than 100 to over 115K!
Making Sense of Affiliate Marketing: Prior to taking my blog as a business, I didn’t have the slightest clue what affiliate marketing was and that you could make a pretty great income from it (if you know how to do it right). After discovering who Michelle Schroeder-Gardner was and reading about how she makes seven figures from her blog, mainly through passive income, I knew I had to learn from her! As a personal financial blogger of Making Sense of Cents, Michelle is the perfect source to learn from if you are looking to make a sustainable income from your own blog.
I just finished Michelle’s course on Making Sense of Affiliate Marketing and already started making money from affiliate links! This course is absolutely amazing and I highly recommend it to anyone looking to make money from their blog or social media accounts.
