If you want to make money blogging, getting active on Pinterest is the way to do it. Now, everyone has a different strategy that they've played around with, and this one is Manual Pinning by Kyla at Dish It Out Social. My thoughts below.

This strategy was discovered by Kyla from Dish It Out Social - what she found way to pin manually that:
Doesn't take up too much time.
Gets your pins in front of people.
Brings in traffic from those pins.
How Does It Work?
You follow her strategy. There's a simple 15 minute video where she shows you exactly what she does to get the results she gets. In 30 days, traffic tripled!
There are a ton of strategies to market your blog posts and pins, and a lot of them involve creating massive spreadsheets to keep track - I don't have that kind of energy.
I've been battling this allergy monster that felt like the flu but 20 times worse, and it's been over a month. Good thing, I've got things to write about and share with ya'll.
This manual pinning strategy is something I can do whenever I remember to. It's super quick, and the results are kind of insane.
How Much Time Does It Take?
The e-book is about 40 pages, and I got through it in an hour or two. I can't remember, but it was quick, and I don't like to stop reading once I've started something.
I went through the book and video, took some notes and applied them to my Pinterest profile and boards. After that, I started pinning and watching my progress to see if it really does work.
So Does It Really Work?
Pinterest Analytics still confuse me, so I've just been monitoring my monthly views from the main page. As for monitoring pageviews, I watch my stats on Jetpack or Google Analytics, as they are accurate. After about a week of trying it out, this is what I saw:
Before: Monthly views on February 15, 2018 (118K)
After: Monthly Views on February 27, 2018 (151.5K)
Did I see an increase in blog traffic?
Yes, I did. In the 10 days (on and off) that I practiced the Manual Pinning Strategy Kyla talks about, my daily pageviews doubled. Today, as I looked at my stats, I noticed that I surpassed my "best day views". Like what?! It's pretty cool, so obviously I had to review her e-book.
Seeing as how this surprised me, you can probably tell that I'm really skeptical when it comes to these blogging and pinning strategies. One of my most read posts is this one, so I wrote a more in-depth one here. You can tell if I really do not like something and if it makes me happy.
I'm really excited to see how using this strategy more consistently will bring in more traffic. So far, I'm really happy the results. You know what's the best part?
I saw the promotion without the price, so I joined the list to be notified when it would be released. When I saw that it was only $24, I jumped on it. I could spare it at the time, and I'm really glad I did.
*The cost of the e-book will change as Kyla sees fit.
Kyla, you made me happy with this one! This is something that is a valuable tool at an affordable cost, and I love that. I love when I can afford tools to make myself better and learn new things.
