When I published my first article I was really nervous. I checked it 100 times.
Now the whole world is going to stop to read my first blog post. I opened google analytics to watch them come. The masses.
Thousands of people checking my blog.
1 minute, 5 minutes, 15 minutes…
1 hour, 5 hours, 15 hours…
Literally, no one visited my blog.
Do you know the feeling?
Yes, it hurts. You put so much time and effort to write the content, prepare the blog, find these awesome pictures, and so on. Yet, the blogging reality comes – you have to figure out how to get the traffic.
Ever heard of Pinterest?
Yes, yes, Pinterest is responsible for over 90% traffic on my blog. It’s a couple of thousand viewers a month!
When I started I was wondering why some pins are getting thousands of repins while the others are getting close to none.
Why do some bloggers receive so much traffic?
Why some pins look that awesome that I feel a need to click them?
How do you make such a pin?
And then it happened. I found it on 22 September 2017.
Before I tell you what that was, let me show you my statistics.
A month before:
A month after:
Guess how many posts did I publish in that period… 3! Literally 3 posts! You can go ahead and check them out.
So how did I do that?
Did I spend 100 hours on Facebook/Twitter/Pinterest?
Did I send emails to every person I could to promote my blog?
Did I buy a couple of minutes on TV?
Did I do some sketchy things?
No! None of that.
The only thing I did was: I learned how to make my pins look awesome.
Making an amazing pin
I was wondering why my pins were not getting repined thousand of times. Why wasn`t I getting the traffic? Why do others have such great results?
And then I found Jeff and Ben from Breaking the One Percent and their Pinterest profile. I was amazed. Their pins were so much better than mine! That was a different league!
I thought – if I only could produce such amazing pins, I would also get much more traffic.
I started to analyze their pins and try to reproduce them. I got better.
But then I realized that they are actually teaching people how to create such great pins. I did not think too long and got the course.
Did I get the results I wanted? Yes! That’s why I want to introduce you to the course.
I don`t want to brag, but let me remind you – my traffic increased by 424% in 4 weeks.

Disadvantages of the course
It takes time and effort. You can finish the course in under an hour, but you will not be able to produce great looking pins right away. It will take time. You will be irritated, you will make dozens of pins that you won’t be happy about.
You have to know the basics of Pinterest and pinning in general terms.
Who shouldn’t attend the course?
– You think you will become blogging rockstar over the night and you’ll earn millions by the end of the week. Forget it, don’t buy the course.
– You are a blogger writing about current events. If the content is not ever-green, then you won’t get much traffic from Pinterest. It takes some time. Don’t buy the course.
– You think that buying some course will change your life even though you are not willing to work your ass off. Don’t buy it.
– You have no idea about Pinterest. Learn first, then buy.
Who is this course for?
Are you dedicated to making this whole blogging thing work?
Are you are willing to learn about getting more traffic?
Do you want to learn how to grow your Pinterest account?
Are you willing to work your ass off to get the results?
Then you should consider attending the course. For me, it worked. I publish my income and traffic reports since the first month of blogging. You can check out my monthly updates here. (Warning! I’m not gussying up my reports – blogging reality is not as easy as everyone is telling you.)
The course has been updated and now it also contains some highly effective strategies to choose the right group boards to pin to. It is SO IMPORTANT! I cannot stress it enough.
Having an awesome pin is the most important thing.
But knowing where to pin it’s the next level!
