Pinterest Marketing

Pinterest scheduling tools make Pinterest SO much easier.  This is one of the new ways I’m experimenting with traffic and can be a great one to go for, with quite different results to Facebook, or Twitter!

I’m using both the tools below at the moment, because they both offer something different and compliment each other.

  • Tailwind – There are various levels you can pay for.  At the moment, I have a standard membership and can schedule 400 pins a month, but if you want to upgrade to pay annually, you get unlimited pins.

Self-Publishing: 

  • K money mastery – a great complete course to teach you how to make money self publishing ebooks on amazon.  Full review here
  • Kindle Spy – An awesome tool to use in conjunction with K money mastery for seeking out the best niches and to spy on other authors within your niche – and check out exactly how much money they’re making!  Full review here.

Freelancing:

If you’re interested in Freelancing to boost your blogging income, this is a popular route to take.  I have heard of many bloggers who actually earn more from freelancing in the end.

I recommend the course, 30 days to freelance success, by Gina Horkey. 

It’s a course I’ve taken myself and Gina is a great teacher, who presents things in an easy-to-digest fashion.  Gina went from zero- $4000 a month freelancing, in just six months, (with a full time job!).
