Virtual assistants are in demand worldwide. As a virtual assistant, you could find clients in your own community or halfway around the globe. It’s a great way to make a living and work from home. 

You’ll meet interesting people, learn new tasks and responsibilities and perhaps best of all, enjoy the freedom that comes with being your own boss. (I know, this totally sounds like a dream job- because it IS!)

With Pinterest on the rise for marketing businesses and almost every successful blogger using it to increase their traffic, specialized Pinterest VA’s are becoming a hot commodity and increasingly in demand.

In fact, Pinterest has stated that over 250 MILLION people around the world use their platform. This creates an ideal situation for anyone wanting to make money working from home, especially if you love Pinterest!

Luckily, one of my favorite Pinterest marketers, Megan Johnson from, recently launched a course loaded with everything you could possibly need to know about becoming a successful Pinterest VA.

How did you get started as a blogger to start your journey as a Pinterest VA making money online?

I started blogging back in 2015 not long after I had my daughter. My blog started out as a parenting blog (hence the name) and about 3 months in I realized I needed to blog about what I know, marketing. I wasn’t the best motherhood blogger! 

What services does a Pinterest Virtual Assistant offer?

A Pinterest VA’s responsibilities include: pin creation, pin scheduling, analytics and metrics audits to make sure the pins are actually converting to website traffic. Group board requests and audits, to make sure the group board you are pinning your clients content to is performing well.

There are also monthly reports to your clients to let them know how things are going, how their profile and pins are performing and a plan moving forward in case things need a little tweaking. 

How much money can you make from home as a Pinterest Virtual Assistant?

A newbie VA can charge anywhere from $20-$25 an hour with each client needing roughly 8 hours of work per month. Which equals $160 – $200 a month per client.

An experienced VA who has a good handle on Pinterest can charge $30-$50 an hour making $240-$400 per client per month. 

How do you become a Pinterest Virtual Assistant?

Anyone can become a Pinterest VA with the proper training! 100% recommend investing in a course that walks you through all the steps! 

Do you have any tips on hiring a Pinterest Virtual Assistant?

Make sure your VA has had success with other clients OR their own Pinterest account.
