services a pinterest va can offer

Before we get into the meat and potatoes, let’s quickly go over what a Pinterest VA is and typically offers.

A Pinterest Virtual Assistant is a freelancer with specialized knowledge in setting up, and growing clients Pinterest presence.

They may help with:

  • Scheduling pins on a monthly basis
  • Check for and upload new content onto Pinterest
  • Analyze Pinterest analytics
  • Account setup for Tailwind or BoardBooster
  • Pinterest business account setup
  • Researching and applying to group boards
  • Custom pin design
  • And lots more!

Now that we know what a Pinterest VA usually offers, let’s get into the top 4 reasons why now is the best time to become one!


Normally when you think of growing your Pinterest, you’d think a social media manager would be the ideal person to hire. And while social media managers may have knowledge on Pinterest, they could be better versed in other platforms like Twitter, Facebook or Instagram.

Whereas, when you hire a Pinterest expert, you’re getting someone with in-depth knowledge who has seen the power of Pinterest firsthand.

Also, with Pinterest being recognized as a major source of traffic for popular bloggers, the demand for Pinterest services has continued to rise.

Especially if you have examples of prior client success, or even a case study showing your own success with Pinterest.


Since offering Pinterest assistance is more of a niche service, you can raise your rates. Pinterest VA’s typically start at the lowest of $15/hr or all the way up to $50/hr depending on how you decide to value your time and expertise.
