Course Description

Did you know people spend MORE money on Pinterest than any other social media platform? Yes - even more than Facebook!

Wondering how to get started? What to pin? When to pin? How to get people to "follow" you?

I'll even take you outside of Pinterest, showing you how you can not only get your hands on some amazing free tools, but also how to actually USE them to optimize your Pinterest results.
