Do you feel like you are stuck and you don’t know what to do to raise your traffic from the ground?
Not that long ago I was in your shoes. I was struggling to get 1k page-views on my blog. I knew there was something I was missing and I didn’t know what it was. I was publishing content (slowly, as I had a full time corporate job). I was creating pins and pinning on Pinterest (ugly pins, manual pinning when I had time, not when readers had time).
The only thing I knew was that I won’t give up until I get where I wanted. If other bloggers can have 200k page views or make $100k month, there is a way I can achieve it too, one day.
All I needed to do was to start doing what they were doing. One day in October 2017 I decided to take a week off, go to Miami and work on my blog.
Yes sometimes this is the idea of a holiday for me, considering I had 15 days paid leave and I used 4 (Thanksgiving week) to spend it working around the clock. Good news was, the weather forecast showed thunderstorms the whole week which I was happy about as it would be so much easier to just stay in the hotel room and work knowing the weather is awful, but no it was sunny every single day:)
I did a list of all the items I wanted to change and spend the needed time on updating my blog. I decided to do all the updates I knew were necessary and my husband was developing our app – PinMeApp to automate scheduling of my pins.
It took really tremendous amount of time to update all the mistakes I had on my blog- which if you consider I only had like 30 posts didn’t seem too much to start with.
Within a week a great amount of work was done and the results showed up immediately. I remember walking on the beach and refreshing wordpress app amazed how many page views I had that day.
I also started seeing first cents on AdSense app. Fast forward within a month of applying the changes and having my pins scheduled with PinMeApp I had 430% increase in page views. I was hoping for 1k views, but I got over 3.3k. Next month 8.5k.
Doesn’t it sound amazing? Go from 700 page views to over 8 500 in 2 months! That is over 1200% increase in traffic. I will also add that within 5 months I have reached 13 000 page views. Amazing!
I was amazed how great results I was getting. As those results were consistent, when I was putting the work into my blog I decided to share my both secrets with others as I once needed this information for myself. If sharing it with others will help someone make money blogging, travel more and live worry free then I am all for it.
I have found a step by step solution which brought traffic to my website and I have developed an amazing tool to automate Pinterest scheduling. I have launched both products in August 2018.
This ebook gives you step by step instructions which can help you grow your blog same way this worked for me. If you’d like to know more head to my 1st blogging income report or my 2nd blogging income report and see for yourself my screens of the traffic growth.
My top 3 posts that been shared most on Pinterest.
- 34.4k shares Everything you need to know about rabbits
- 22.4k shares 24 hairstyles to inspire your hairdresser
- 22.4k shares 49 rabbits
If you are unsure if it is worth to pay for my ebook, than do not do it. I don’t want you to make bad decision and regret. Yes, I did it I said: do not buy it. Since it is an ebook you download, it will stay with you forever I have a no return policy. But if you go through my blog see my posts and the repin ratio sometimes even 34k repins it means something. It means that I do have readers and I do have a good Pinterest strategy in place.
Is my Ebook for you?
If you are serious about blogging, tried for several months to get traffic but were unsuccessful, you want to monetize your blog than yes this ebook can be for you.
It can also be for you if you are not a blogger, but are interested to get more traffic to your website from Pinterest than definitely yes.
Maybe you have an airbnb rental, or travel company or fashion brand, if you want to bring traffic from Pinterest than yes definitely my ebook can help you.
If you just blog for fun, don’t care if anyone is ever going to read your blog, do not plan to monetize it then no, you don’t need it.
I started making $20 monthly with Adsence the moment I hit 6k pageviews, which was on the 2nd month. If you want this type of results, than purchasing the ebook may well be worth it.
I’ve seen bloggers selling their Pinterest ebooks for hundreds of dollars, which is fine, everyone have a right to price their work as they think if fair, but first thing I checked was their Pinterest reach. If I have 1.5m reach (having 700 followers) and I am looking at a Pinterest Ebook from someone who has 300k reach (with 30k followers) that may not be the best way to spend my money.
Maybe there is something I do not know and could learn, but I guess I’d rather invest in someones Ebook where I can see better results than mine.

More stats to analyze:
Is my Pinterst scheduler for you?
Pinterest schedulers that are on the market are very time consuming, this is why I created mine.
I wanted fully automated solution where I set up my Pinning schedule once and forget about it.
It is good to monitor or do some changes from time to time, but it takes minutes- not hours to update.
Outsourcing pinning to Pinterest Assistant can cost you $100-$300/month. My plans start from $100/year or $10/month. You can also take advantage of the free trial offer. Not only you can save a lot of time but also money.
As for the results you need to check for yourself. I have read articles where bloggers were raving about their Pinterest Assistants but I saw their posts being shared less than 100 times. I have posts that have been shared over 30k times. If a post that been shared 100 times is making money it means it is a great powerful post, but just imagine how much money doesn’t make it on the table if this post was shared 30k times. Like, much much more.
Maybe you are a Pinterest Assistant and want to automate your clients pinning- you should give my app a try as you will only need to set it up once. No need to waste hours every week to schedule pins. I offer a free trial week so you can see for yourself how easy the set up is. Free trial is a real free trial no need to give your credit card or paypal info.
Are you ready?
If you found this article and feel like this is not the time, you will do something with your blog another time, trust me I’ve been there. It does feel great though when you finally see the results you’ve been hoping for.
I shared my stats as I want to be transparent and show you what is achieveble. Your results may vary. Having a great blog means you have a blog that brings value to the readers, they find the full information they’ve been looking for, they enjoy your style of writing.
No tool or technique can guarantee results if there is a poor quality. You may have the prettiest pins that would drive a ton of traffic to your blog, but if your post doesn’t solve a problem you will only have a huge bounce rate. People would leave. SO in my Ebook I give you my best advice and tips and you decide if you want to use it or not.
I was one of those who NEEDED the information I have now. I saw ebooks promising to take me from 0- 200k page views in couple of months and that is great but when I was at the 700 page views I was dreaming about 5 000 and then 30 000 to get accepted to Mediavine.
And only than I would think of going further. I can’t tell you from my experience if my ebook will take you to 30 000 or 200 000 as I have only reached 13 000 but I stopped using my own advice after 13 000. If you read my story you see I was all over the place and my main focus was my app not the blog.
Sidenote, if you don’t know what Mediavine is- it is an add company, like Google AdSense, but they pay 5 times more. So let’s say I made $40 in March 2018 (with 13k page views) I would most likely get $200 if I was running Mediavine ads, instead of Google ads. They start accepting bloggers once they have at least 30k page views/month.
I understand it may feel weird for you, why I didn’t continue working on my blog and getting this 30k page-views to get to Mediavine, as I just mentioned this was my plan. I really saw too much of an opportunity in my app and I spent every free minute of my life in the past several months to get to the launch of it.
The functionality was working within a week but building the product takes much longer. I worked in an IT department as Business Analyst/Project Manager, I had several developers, testers, clients I was working with for much less complex solutions, here I had to be everyone. I was a Project Manager, Business Analyst, Client, User, Tester, Scrum Master all at once. And I only had 1 developer working after hours, usually 8pm-2am to build the front end, build the analytics, build the additional functions, do a lot of testing.
This project took a lot of time and effort for the 2 of us and I knew right from the start that it will be worth it. The knowledge I got and written down in my ebook is not going away, once I find more time I definitely continue growing my blog and will be happy to share my results.
What is in the Ebook?
So what can you expect to learn from my ebook: everything I know about Pinterest, pins, boards and pinning. There are SEO tips and I give you a bonus, a spreadsheet I personally use to track my blog progress. For this price, I really don’t think you have anything to lose if you are serious of making a change to your blog.
The best advice I can give you is to do everything you read when you read it. Don’t go and read the whole thing at once, go step by step. If you are not done with step 1, don’t even look at step 2, this is crucial that you APPLY the changes to your blog.
Dec 2018 update: I no longer offer ebook for sale, but I do share it with my Pinterest Consulting Clients, as well as offer 2x 30min calls to give advice on improving Pinterest account for better results. To schedule a call go here.
Pin for later:
Hi, my name is Joanna, I started this blog in Jan 2017. I created posts about beauty, fashion, travel, rabbits, money blogging ect. Simply put: all the stuff I care about. After 10 months I realized my blog is not getting enough traffic so I dived into research. Till Oct 2017 I only had around 700 visitors on my blog per month. Then I implemented my Pinterest strategy and automated my pinning with my own build tool – PinMeApp. In Nov 2017 I got 3300 page views and then in Dec 2017 8500. That is how my app was born: PinMeApp. I wanted to help others grow traffic to their sites as well. Today I offer subscription for my app, but I also teach people my Pinterest strategy, step by step what I did to grow the traffic so fast, so this blog is now getting around 20k page views each month. I also offer Pinterest Management and implement my strategy for brands who want to reach their audience on Pinterest as well. My Pinterest account reaches over 5m people monthly. If you want such results feel free to contact me. Cheers, Joanna
