I’m obsessed with Pinterest! It’s a freaking great way to market your business, increase your traffic, and grow your email list…on autopilot!! Content that I made a year ago is STILL being repinned, people are still being added to my email list, and I’m making sales every darn day–all because of Pinterest!

Pinterest is really a search engine, like Google, instead of a social media platform. But what really makes Pinterest stand out from Google is that it’s VISUAL. Which means if you want to stand out on Pinterest, you’ve gotta make sure your graphics are on point!

So let’s talk about creating quality images for Pinterest–ones that will convert!!

More of a visual learner? Me too! Scroll down for the video tutorial!

Creating Pinterest Images that Convert Tip #1: Use Verticle Images vs. Horizontal

How can you create Pinterest Images?

My absolute favorite site to create quality Pinterest images that convert is Canva.com!

Canva makes it SO SIMPLE to create amazing graphics! I am def not a graphic designer by any means! If I can do it, you can too! And no, I’m not a Canva affiliate, I just love the site!

Here’s a screen shot of what the site looks like. They even have a Pinterest template, with the right size (735x1102) ready for you to design yourself!

Once you select the Pinterest template, you can design it how you like! Verticle images will stand out more in the Pinterest feed since they are bigger.

See the examples below? The one of the left is just a regular square image. Not really attenion grabbing, right? And the one on the right? It’s still a transformation picture, but it’s a verticle image, which will stand out more. Plus, it has text on the image and a call to action. More about that below!

Creating Pinterest Images that Convert Tip #2: Include Text on your Images.

Images with text perform better than those without! People are scrolling on Pinterest (usually on their phones), so you need a scroll stopping image with an attention grabbing headline. Give people a reason to stop the scroll, save the pin, and click through to your site. Use your pins to tell a story and include a call to action!

Here are two examples. The one on the left, well, first it’s a terrible quality picture (it’s mine lol). I’m not really sure what it is or what the pin is trying to do. Maybe the post has a recipe? We don’t know. But the pin on the right! It’s got bold text describing exactly what the person will see when they click through the post!

Creating Pinterest Images that Convert Tip #3: Keep the text easy to read and avoid using super fancy fonts

Simple is best!

Here are two examples. The one of the left is hard to read and definitely makes me want to keep scrolling. The one on the right, however, stands out! Bright colors, clear font, and tells me exactly what the post is about.

Creating Pinterest Images that Convert Tip #4: Reference a freebie in your image if you have one!

Pinterest is a HUGE traffic driver, so you want to take advantage of that by capturing your visitor’s email address so they don’t disappear off into the internet without ever seeing you (or your products) again!

If you have something to offer people to join your email list (like a worksheet, PDF, etc.), then put that bad boy in your image so people know that when they come to your site they’ll be able to get something valuable for free!

My Successful Morning Routine | The Miracle Morning

My Successful Morning Routine | The Miracle Morning

Today I want to teach you how to start your day off RIGHT!

Morning routines are so key when it comes to having a successful day! Either my kid wakes me up by peeling my eyes open and the day starts, OR I wake up intentionally a bit earlier, get my prayer and personal development done BEFORE he wakes up. Even if it’s just 30 minutes, it makes such a big difference!

My morning routine starts the night before. I go through my day planner and decide what needs to happen the next day. That way, I’m not scrambling to tackle whatever, I have a plan in place and get it done.

I put my planner, my bible, the book I’m currently reading out by my morning chair =) and I also get my coffee cup and water cup ready.

I usually wake up at 5 and start by first drinking my water, then make my coffee as I drink MORE water. You’re so dehydrated when you wake up so your body needs water stat!

Then, I head on over to my morning chair and start reading while I drink my coffee. Side note: I never NEED coffee, I just like it =)

After reading about 10 min, I do my prayer/meditation. If you’re new to meditating, download the apps Calm or Headspace, they’re great!

I take notes on anything that sticks out to me during my reading and prayer time, share something on social media that I learned to encourage someone, then work out! I already have my workout up on my computer and it’s ready for me.

I am not perfect with my routine, but I do this 80-90% of the time, and notice the times I don’t I don’t have as much patience and I’m not in as good of a mood! I crave my morning routine!
How about you? Do you have a routine? Will you start one?

How To Grow Your Business on Pinterest

How To Grow Your Business on Pinterest

I started my business 4 years ago with ZERO social media experience. I have my Master’s in Social Work–not social media. When I couldn’t find a job with my master’s and I ended up pregnant, on food stamps, with negative $400 in my checking account, I decided I needed to learn how to start my own biz and truly leverage the power of social media.

I went from earning $20,000 one year, to $80,000 the following year, to over $100,000 the next year, all because of my online presence.

I went from having ZERO traffic to my blog (except my mom lol) to over 34,000 visitors every single month. I went from no one seeing my content to launching a little $9 ebook that made $1,000 the day it launched and crashed my site! Crazy, huh?

I’ve decided that I need to teach people what I know!! I’ve learned a ton over the past couple of years, and I can truly equip women to increase their influence, income, and impact!
