Pinterest Management Tips
Pinterest career people: 2020 is just a couple of weeks away…can you believe it?
As we approach the new year it’s vital that people with Pinterest careers such as Pinterest managers set and track their monthly goals. You gotta inspect what you expect right?
If you’re offering Pinterest management services setting clear goals will help you see your progress and see where you need to make changes month to month. Failing to track your progress may result in you losing momentum because you can’t clearly see if all your activities are paying off. If you are serious about your Pinterest career you want to avoid keeping all that information in your head…way too stressful for the brain and that’s no fun.
When you have your goals and the results documented on a piece of paper it makes it very clear where you stand. It’s black and white. You either did great, or stayed the same or totally sucked this year.
When I am coaching Pinterest managers or students who have taken my course, one of the questions I ask them in our first coaching session is how much they want to make? Surprisingly many don’t really know. Some may say they want to make $10K a month and some say they want to make $50 per hour. Pinterest career earnings expectations are all over the place. I never hear consistent numbers. This is the reason why I created this monthly template so that it will at least force you to figure that part in addition to other things.
If you’re just starting out in your Pinterest career as a Pinterest manager you will be making several changes in your business as your business grows. I offer a course for those who want to be successful Pinterest managers and I share all my secrets I’ve learned managing accounts for seven years. So naturally you can follow my formula.
For example, at some point you will need to make some changes based on the type of services you offer and the types of clients you want to attract. Because the truth of the matter is no Pinterest manager is the same. Just like no one business is the same. This goal and sales tracker will help anyone with a Pinterest career grow their business because it forces you to evaluate what’s working and what’s not every month.
With a Pinterest career expect to make changes every month. If you don’t like change find a way to start embracing it:) Then at some point most of your activities will be on auto-pilot and from there you can really start getting creative about how to grow your Pinterest management business.
As a Pinterest career professional it’s important that you arm yourself with tools and people that will help you get to the next level. One of the tools my student receive in my How to Become a Successful Pinterest Manager is the Ultimate Pinterest Manager Goal and Sales Tracker template. Let me show you how to use it to help you grow your business.
1. Business goals
2. Sales Goals
1. Business goals
a. Determine your business goal. For example, do you want to make improvements on your website, or start a blog, maybe start creating courses for passive income, or take a course.
b. Determine the date you want to start. For example, you want to take a Pinterest manager course Jan. 1st.
c. Set a deadline, when do you want to finish it. For example, you want to finish the course by Jan. 21st.
d. List the challenges or obstacles that’s preventing you from taking the course. For example, you don’t have the money, maybe you don’t have the time, or it’s something else. Identify the number one obstacle and then begin thinking of all the different ways (brainstorm, do creative problem solving) you can get; around, above, through or under it and make progress towards your goal.
e. Determine who can help you achieve your goal. Maybe if it’s a time factor, you can ask your neighbor to babysit your kids while you study. Maybe it’s money. Calculate how much you need to save every so you can take the course.
f. What specific actions do you need to take to achieve your goal. For example, if you’re taking a course you will have to adjust your schedule to make time to study and implement what you learned.
2. Sales goals
Okay, so you want to make a lot of money or maybe just enough so you can stay home with the kids. When setting sales goal there’s a fine line between ambitious and unrealistic. If you make your sales goal too difficult to achieve you’ll end up getting frustrated. Avoid wishful thinking. Instead set realistic sales goals for your Pinterest career from the start so you’re continually motivated and you’re also setting yourself for success.
a. Services (monthly management, audits, coaching, account set-up, content marketing, image creation, etc): How much do you want to make? How much did you actually earn?
b. Products (for example courses, templates, etc): How much do you want to make? How much did you actually sell?
a. How many clients did you book for the month?
b. How many clients did you lose for the month?
List all your expenses (office space, website maintenance, scheduling tool, bank fees, etc) and the amount.
To determine your profits; calculate your sales (from step #2 sales goal) minus expenses (from step #3 expenses).
Tracking progress every month is a powerful idea. And not just for keep motivated and productive.
When you track your progress, you know where you stand. You also have more insight into the value you’re creating for your clients and you can clearly see the results of your daily tasks. Smart business people and people serious about a Pinterest career inspect what they expect and they do it regularly. Now that you have this template there’s no reason why you can’t do the same.
