A few months ago, I was standing in line and I overheard a woman behind me talking about Pinterest. This lady couldn’t wait to get home so she could spend some time pinning.
I totally understood how she felt, and a lot of pinners feel this way. Pinterest is fun and chock full of interesting things.
And Pinterest has an additional meaning for bloggers, entrepreneurs, and small businesses. That’s because Pinterest is a great way to drive traffic, build your email list, and increase your income.
But, as fun and as valuable as it is, if you’re on Pinterest for your business, then there comes a time when you might want to hire some help.
So, how do you know when it’s time to hire a Pinterest virtual assistant?
You’re spending too many hours on Pinterest, and it’s taking away from your business.
It’s easy to start pinning and then get sucked down the rabbit hole. Before you know it, two hours have gone by. You’ve learned a lot of great things and your brain’s swimming with ideas, but you didn’t get some of your work done (like writing that blog post, ahem).
Your time could be better spent on other tasks for your business.
Some business tasks require your direct involvement. For example, if you’re a business coach, is your time better spent coaching a client, or pinning? If you’re a blogger, is it better for you to spend your time crafting an email with your personal insights and knowledge for your fans?
Focus on the tasks of your business that specifically require you, and hand off pinning to a VA like me.
You don’t have the time to keep up with the latest algorithm change.
Pinterest changes a lot. Sometimes it’s a temporary change, and sometimes it’s a new, permanent feature that’s being rolled out.
When these changes occur it can be concerning, and it can take time to figure out what’s going on. You can take the time to do that, or you can hire someone else to worry about all of that. 😊
You’ve discovered that you don’t like Pinterest, or you’re tired of pinning.
That’s totally fair. If Pinterest isn’t your thing, then it isn’t your thing. But you should still enjoy all of the great traffic that Pinterest can bring.
You want your business on Pinterest, but you don’t have the time to do it.
You’ve heard people talking about how great Pinterest has been for their blog or business.
You know that you want to get your business on there, but you’d have to learn how to do that, and then take the time to actually do it.
And because of that, you just never get around to it.
The good news is that you don’t have to keep putting it off. You can hire someone like me to get your business on Pinterest.
