How One Pin Design Course Increased My Income by $12k

Ever wonder why some Pinterest accounts have endless viral pins while others struggle to get even a handful of clicks?

I mean, we know there’s a lot of factors that go into what causes a pin to go viral, but there’s one thing we can’t ignore about Pinterest:

It’s visual.

This means, if your pin design is not on point, you WILL lose traffic (or maybe never get it in the first place 😭).

But pin design isn’t always easy… When I first started creating pins in early 2019, I would literally spend HOURS creating one or two pins. It was painful.

Until… one day, I found Kristin Rappaport on Pinterest (of course!).

I kept seeing her gorgeous pins in my Home Feed, and I couldn’t get enough. I just wanted to make pins that looked like THAT.

I spent about a week binging Kristin’s content and learning as much as I could about how real graphic designers operate (turns out they have so many time-and-sanity-saving tips holy moly)…. Then, I finally caved and bought her pin design course. Within no time, I could create pins QUICKLY that actually LOOKED GOOD.

The following week, I created a proper pin design portfolio on my website:

If you're looking for the best Pinterest pin design ideas, tips, and inspiration, look no further than Pin Design Perfection. This pin design course helped me develop the design skills I needed to make $12K last year on design services within my Pinterest manager business. Kristin's course is the best resource for step-by-step instructions on how to design click-worthy pins fast! She includes lots of pin templates in Canva too!

…and almost immediately (3 days later to be exact) I had a new client request 50 pins per month, which was more recurring $$$ than I had paid for Kristin’s course.

👉 Real. Life. Income. 👈

But it didn’t stop there…

Skills = Moolah 💰

The truth is, graphic design is a ridiculously AMAZING skill to have in the online world.

Being able to create graphics with confidence has made such a huge difference in my income, I can’t say it enough.

Here’s a list of all the designs/products I’ve created after taking Kristin’s program last year, and the revenue I’ve generated from each.

On my niche blog:

  • Teacher Questionnaire Template (earnings: $728)
  • Parent Volunteer Template Pack (earnings: $1,078)
  • Parent Volunteers Guide to Raising Money E-Book (brand new product earnings: $105 to date)
  • Parent Volunteer Templates (affiliate income $3,926 to date… these are regular parents, NOT graphic designers!)

In my Pinterest management business:

  • Pin Design for Clients (earnings: $5,345 to date)
  • Logo Design and Media Kits for clients ($675 to date)
  • Pin Templates (earnings: $775 to date)

The initial investment I made into Kristin’s program gave me the SKILLS to generate over $12k in revenue last year.

I believe the best investment you can make when starting an online career is learning a valuable, in-demand skill. If graphic design is something you enjoy, you can turn that into a real income.

Kristin’s program helped me do it, and it can help you too!

Here’s what you’ll going to learn in the workshop:

  • A guaranteed way to increase your visibility and actually look like a professional

If you struggle with graphic design or feel like it takes your way too long to create a pin, Pin Design Perfection will fast-track you to being able to create with confidence and SPEED! Then you can turn those same skills into income-generating products or services just like I did in whichever field of graphic design you enjoy most.

I have taken 3 pin design courses, and Kristin’s is the only course I recommend. The way she simplifies everything for us non-designers, made such a HUGE difference in comparison to the other courses I took.
