I started my blog in May of 2016 when I first moved abroad, and I didn’t know that much about the blogging world. What I DID know was that I wanted to share my living abroad experiences and fitness advice with others. So I read and researched A LOT. Took several courses and fast forward to January 2018 and Flourish-ious.com has grown tremendously. More about our story here. I really really owe it to the great content, hard work but most importantly the power of Pinterest.
Pinterest isn’t just a place where you can post pretty things to boards. I’ve found that a lot of my blogger friends just don’t know what to do with it and consequently are missing out on all of the benefits of utilizing Pinterest for their brand and blog.
Most importantly Pinterest is a search engine. Often times you’ll Google to find how to do something, but what you may or may not realize is that your audience might live on Pinterest but you’re failing to use it. With over 70 million users PER DAY, why would you NOT want to get your content on there?!
This doesn’t mean to say that you need to stop promoting on Facebook, Twitter or your other social media channels, but it means that you can now possibly find a larger market and audience for your blog or product.

These are some of Pinterest Analytics:
And readers actually engaging with my content, following me on social media, downloading my freebies and sending me emails about my posts. I’ve had several posts go viral on Pinterest a few times.
Believe it or not, your ranking on Google is affected by your rank and SEO strength on Pinterest. Whilst doing a blog audit a few weeks ago – after being pretty MIA on my blog for six months, I came across a surprising fact… quite a few of my articles are ranking on Google, hence the organic traffic I’ve been noticing on my Google Analytics for some time. Although I hadn’t been promoting that much content from June 2017-January 2018 my blog was STILL getting traffic!

I have yet to utilize my email list, but was happy to learn while logging into my Mailchimp account that I actually have three hundred subscribers!
As a result of this increase in traffic to my blog, I have been selected by brands to feature their products on my blog and my IG. Furthermore, I now can tell brands that approach me that I can only provide them with the coverage they want, at a fee. I know there’s been a recent backlash against bloggers not having a real job, but if you get paid for it, it’s a job!
As a result of the blog successes I’ve stated above, I believe that I can help other bloggers like myself achieve the results that they desire and to Flourish with Pinterest. I have experience managing social media accounts for fitness studios, blogs and now have expanded my social media management tools to Pinterest. Would you like to see similar results with Pinterest?
