For some, a Pinterest Virtual Assistant salary can be up to $100 per hour. The amount of money you make will depend on your experience, skills, education, and so on.
In 2015, Kristin was a brand new blogger and had limited tech skills. The only social media platform she seemed to understand was Pinterest. Within one month of using Pinterest, she was able to grow her website’s traffic from 5,000 pageviews to 17,000 pageviews!
After sharing her Pinterest success on her blog, she was hired by two fellow bloggers to help them grow their Pinterest presence. In her first month at her Pinterest virtual assistant job, Kristin made $480 working one hour per week with each client.
Within six months, she was earning $3,600 per month on the side of her full-time job.
It wasn’t long before Kristin was able to quit her 9-5 job and find success with her online business.

What does a Pinterest virtual assistant do?
As a Pinterest Virtual Assistant (Pinterest VA for short), you can help build a client’s reach on Pinterest and maintain their presence on the social media platform.
That’s the simplest definition of being a Pinterest VA. Here’s a quick breakdown of some of the tasks you’ll be handling as a Pinterest VA:
1. Create awesome pins
You know how when you’re scrolling on Pinterest and a pin catches your eye? Whether it’s a beautiful image or a title that makes you want to click to read more – there’s something special about the pin that captured your attention.
That’s what creating a click-worthy pin is all about! A good pin has either:
- A great image that makes you want to click through to find out more.
- Or it contains intriguing text that makes you want to click through and read more.
Each pin on Pinterest leads to a website or sales page. You’ll be creating pins to help drive traffic to your client’s online business.
Still confused? I can appreciate if this sounds a little confusing right now. Here’s another way to think about it. Let’s say your client runs a travel blog and they publish one new blog post per week.
The best way to help your client get traffic to their new blog posts is to create multiple pins for each post.
This means you’ll want to create at least 3 different pins for each new blog post. Then you can share these pins on your client’s Pinterest account. This can help grow your client’s traffic like crazy!
If the blog post is called “10 ways to visit New York City on a budget”, you can create a pin using this headline. You can also create 2 more pins with different headlines, such as “How to visit NYC on a tight budget” or “10 ways to save money when visiting New York City”.
Below is an example of 3 pins that have different headlines. Each pin would link to the same blog post, article or sales page.
You never know which headline is going to jump out and resonate with your client’s audience. This is why it’s so important to create a few different pins for each blog post. You’ll drive more clicks to your client’s website by following this easy strategy.
2. Write pin descriptions
Did you know that Pinterest is more of a search engine than a social media platform?
As a Pinterest VA, you’ll write a pin description for every pin that you share on your client’s Pinterest account. This will let other users on Pinterest know what your pin is about.
It’s also good to include relevant keywords in your pin’s description. This will help your client’s pins show up in the search results on Pinterest.
3. Use a tool to schedule pins
The great thing about Pinterest is that you don’t have to be on the platform all the time pinning for your clients.
Instead you can use a handy tool, such as Tailwind to schedule your client’s pins so they’ll be shared to Pinterest even when you’re not logged in. This means you only need to spend a few hours each week (depending on how many clients you have) scheduling pins in Tailwind.
This is known as task batching, and it’s a great way to save time and become an efficient Pinterest VA.
What skills do you need to become a Pinterest manager?
The good news is that you don’t need to have a background in graphic design in order to create beautiful pins to share on Pinterest. You also don’t need a degree to become a virtual assistant.
You can easily learn how to make awesome pins on a free websites like Canva or PicMonkey. This is how I started creating pins for my own online business.
Here’s a good way to help you create click-worthy pins:
- Check to see what pins are already ranking well on Pinterest.
- What images are these pins using?
- What colors are being used on these pins? Warm colors? Cool colors?
- What fonts are being used on these pins? One type of font? Multiple fonts?
- What are the pin descriptions? What keywords are these pins using in their descriptions?
By just paying attention to these few elements, this can help you create better pins for your clients. This helped me get more traffic to my website.
What types of services can you offer as a Pinterest VA?
In addition to the responsibilities I’ve listed above, here are some other services you may want to offer as a Pinterest Virtual Assistant:
- Pinterest strategy consultations to help your client create a winning game plan
- Pinterest manager
- Designing Pinterest pins (Canva and PicMonkey are popular tools)
- Writing pin descriptions that would help your client’s content rank well in the Pinterest search results
- Creating and launching a Pinterest Business Account
- Setting up a scheduling tool, such as Tailwind
- Analyzing data with Pinterest analytics
- Pinterest account audits
- Create a promoted pin campaign for your client and track the results
If you don’t feel comfortable analyzing data at this time, no problem. Start by just offering the basic services. This will help you gain more experience while you earn some money.
How much should I charge for Pinterest management?
I don’t recommend charging per pin. This isn’t the best method and it can lead to burn out.
Instead, focus on creating packages from all the services you plan to offer. Tip: Check from the list above to get ideas!
Once you know which packages you would like to offer to clients, figure out how much time it will take you to perform the tasks in the different packages. Then multiply that time by your hourly rate.
You’ll also want to consider how much time you’ll spend communicating with clients in your package.
As I mentioned above, the rate for an absolute beginner can start at $25 – $30 per hour. With more experience, the rates for a Pinterest Manager can go as high as $75 – $100 per hour.

Pinterest VA success story
I was impressed by Erica’s story, who landed her first Pinterest client in less than 30 days after starting Kristin’s course. The impressive part is that she landed this client while still working full-time and parenting two young boys!
Erica found the services module in the course, Become a Pinterest VA, the most helpful. This is because she was able to master the skills she needed that would let her offer high-paying services to her clients.
Erica didn’t have a background in design. She was also surprised to learn that you didn’t need to be super good with technology in order to be a successful Pinterest VA. She did find the tech training in the course immensely helpful though, especially when creating pins, which she refers back to when managing her client’s Pinterest accounts.
