Pinfinite Growth Review: Warning Happy Dance Inducing!
Originally I had never planned on sharing the behind the scenes of this blog. Simply because I didn't want the focus to be on the blog as a "blog" but rather as a source of valuable information for twenty somethings that is always on topic to the readers I'm serving.
Plus, I didn't think I had any insight to offer.
But then I realized a couple of things.
One, a lot of bloggers are twenty somethings trying to figure it out. And, two, a lot of times it is better to hear from those "regular people" that aren't business experts, on how they grew and learned what to do.
I'm not a businesses person, I'm not older and more experienced, I don't know HTML, how to code or design a website, I don't know the first thing about marketing and the idea of selling scares me. Yet here I am, owning a website, creating content, having a business plan in place and a marketing plan in action that is working!
So I thought, you know what? Maybe someone out there would want to see that. Maybe someone out there like me would want to see that a random girl from Washington, who knew nothing about business, grew her blog from less than a 100 readers a day to 1,000+ a day within two months. So that they could think, "Hey, I could do that too!"
I'm going to share a few of the things I learned along the way and guiding you to the masters that taught me! Even though I've been successful with these tools, courses, and techniques I don't feel it would be right to teach you when it was originally someone else that taught me. I do however feel extremely qualified to tell you where to go for that information, what people to listen to and who I trust so you aren't just landing and sticking with the first Google results page you get! (I've been there!)
So for the first post in this series I thought it was appropriate to start with the game changer for my blog and the biggest investment I made with my blog so far.
(Because I'm cheap, after all I blog about budgeting!)
And the crowd went wild!!
Just me? Okay, well just wait, cause you will go wild about it soon enough!
Pinfinite Growth Review (Click Here to Purchase Pinfinite Growth)
I heard about this course when I was Googling how to get traffic from Pinterest to your blog posts. Pinfinite Growth kept coming up as like the "holy grail" of Pinterest Marketing! When I realized it was a paid course I ignored it because I simply wasn't going to pay for something I could just Google for free and find out about. (And now I'm cringing at that idea..)
The problem was I wasn't finding anything solid and comprehensive.
Don't get me wrong there were a million different posts out there, but they all seemed to be opinions, not very specific, and there wasn't really any way for me to know for sure if it worked. I didn't want to put in all the effort and see no results, I didn't want to just take a random person's word for it without any one else's proof it worked.
But again, and again, I kept seeing Pinfinte Growth pop up with results from people and reviews about how it changed their blog.
Finally I bit the bullet, aka, convinced my husband, and bought the course!
I bought the course in December and went through it all month long, making changes to my blog, perfecting my Pinterest, basically following all her instructions step by step! Because of the course I found my niche, what I really wanted to blog about, found my brand for that niche and my marketing strategy, (it's so much more than just how to use Pinterest!)
I implemented these changes early January and started seeing results immediately!
In October, November, & December, combined I had 6,833 pageviews, 150 followers on pinterest, and no email list.(Most of thost views were coming from Facebook alone, aka, my friends and family.)
In January I "relaunched" with all the changes and watched them take affect. In January alone I had 7,001 page views (more than the last three months combined), 369 followers on Pinterest, and gained 27 emails for my list.
I was pretty stoked about those little numbers, until February hit...
In February I had 41,547 page views, I had 1,000 pinterest followers and my email list grew by 306 more!
As of today in March I've had 33,243 page views, 2,092 Pinterest followers, and grown my list by 344 to have a total email list of about 750!And the month is not even over!
As you can see Pinfinite Growth literally changed everything for me and my blog, it lit a fire under me, and made me feel like I could really do this! I will forever be going to Melyssa for all questions and advice with my blog and business!
If you want to hear more of my story it's actually in video form on the Pinfinite Growth launch page! (I told you I was a big fan!) It's an interview I did about my results and why I'm so passionate about the course! You'll also get to hear what my husband thought of the course after me taking it! ;)
Now the pictures!
What Pinfinite Growth is NOT:
Pinfinite Growth is not a bunch of quick tricks or a scheme marketing plan, it takes work to get results.But it tells you the right work to do and in what exact steps! You don't have to go Googling for every answer on your own.
Before I took the course, in those first three months of my blog where I got a little over 6,000 page views I was posting 5-6 times a week! When I rebranded I went down to posting 2-3 times a week and as you can see my page views sky rocketed. It's not about being busy with work, or getting a post out every day!
It's about doing the right work, for the right results.
I hope you enjoyed a little peak into the behind the scenes of this internet home! Now back to my regular scheduled programing of rocking your twenties! ;)
P.S. During Pinfinite Growth's launch Melyssa has allowed those that have taken her course and gotten great results be an affiliate! Which is awesome and another reason why I love her and how she serves her readers. So just know that links in here are affiliate links, but it doesn't affect anything on your end and only helps me grow this blog and my business. I just wanted you to know! :)
