"Thank you John Shea! For a five dollar course that I learned more from than any marketing technique I have ever tried or paid for! I have now have 5.4k followers on the Pinterest account I created with your course. I have also started two other accounts over the last month or two and each of those have 1.5k+ and growing.

Do all that John's says and it's not so hard to build i all up. Do all that John says and you can't miss out. I just logged back in today seeing this bookmarked in my book marks and thought, "Hey, Iet me go see if there's any more gold here that I didn't get," and then I saw the reviews section and thought I am living proof that this works. I do make sales, mostly t-shirts I'm not making full time income - YET - but I am still learning and growing. So five stars and thanks for everything!" - Tina

"Good information and tactics to get you moving faster with Pinterest for your business if it is online or a shop front. Need to watch things twice sometimes to absorb the information properly so that I can use the tactics more effectively. Well worth taking this course as a stepping stone for creating more business online for myself." - Karla

"I really enjoyed this course very much. I liked how the instructor was able to give live real life examples on his own website. Before I took this course on Udemy I took one where the instructor made claims about how he used his methods to make $33,000 in one year but he gave no proof in his course and his course was terrible. It was really bad. John Shea delivers the goods with solid proof.

I even went to his sites and saw it live for myself. There is no denying it. John's methods work. He was also fun to watch and listen to. I don't share his taste in clothing but that's okay. I wish I was good at writing reviews so I could say something really great. I just wanted to let everyone know that this is a good course that actually teaches you real stuff that you can see works with your own eyes and it was fun to watch. John is a very likable guy and this is a very good course." - Allen
