Hiring a Pro Pinterest Pin Designer
Pinterest has a ton of potential for bringing new readers to your site. Commonly mistaken as a social media platform, Pinterest is truly a search engine. With a visual aspect to it.
You want your pins to come up in searches and lead users to that magic solution to their problems. Your website.
Pinterest users are just waiting for the perfect pin to grab their attention and help them find the products, recipes, inspiration, and info they’ve been craving.
If you aren’t confident your pins are up to that task, it may be time to hire yourself a Pinterest pin designer.
You may not know it, but many pro bloggers outsource all kinds of things. Like their pin designs, technical issues, admin tasks, bookkeeping, and even content creation.
Here is a list of the reasons you may want to consider hiring out your pin designs.
1. You don’t have the time
Most pro bloggers or entrepreneurs realize the power of Pinterest. But they also realize that constant pin creation is super time-consuming.
There are so many little (and big) tasks that come with being a blogger. If you aren’t great at designing pins, it’s likely taking up a large chunk of your time. Leaving you little time for more important tasks. Like actually writing blog posts!
If this sounds like something you struggle with, hiring a pin designer could be the solution to a lot of your time management problems.
And you know what they say. Time IS money!
2. You’d rather focus on creating new content & products
Pinterest marketing is great. But only if you have something to market! Many entrepreneurs feel their time is better spent on making the actual blog posts or landing pages those pins link to.
Not only does Pinterest want new pins, but the algorithm also craves new content too. The fresher your content, the more Pinterest puts it out into the feed.
When you post the same URL all the time, Pinterest thinks “Oh this is old news. We’ve already shown this to our users. Next!”
Many bloggers also make their living from creating new products like printables, eBooks, templates, and courses. Focusing your energy into content and products tends to produce a much higher return on investment, even if that investment is just your time.
3. You lack design skills
Graphic design is simply not everyone’s cup of tea. And that’s ok. I truly believe in outsourcing the tasks you aren’t great at so you can fully focus on doing what you love or are really great at. There is no shame in admitting your weaknesses.
And the cold hard truth is, your pins need to look good. Really good.
Why? There’s a whole lot of competition out there. Your pin needs to stand out in a very big sea of other pins. It needs to make that Pinterest user stop scrolling as soon as they see it.
People are visual creatures. And in this fast-paced, internet-driven time we live in, we have very little time to make an impression. That pin design has to hook them instantly or they’ll just keep on scrolling.
Ask yourself, are your pins scroll-stopping, click-worthy good?

4. You’re bad at coming up with pin titles
Sometimes coming up with that click-worthy title is tricky. Much like the overall LOOK of your pin, what your pin actually SAYS is just as important.
Once again, there’s a lot of competition out there. Your pin title needs to grab the reader’s attention and just beg to be clicked.
Your words need to evoke a relatable emotion within the viewer that makes them NEED to learn more and click through to your site.
Say you’re just the average Pinterest user, scrolling for a cookie recipe. You’re met with 2 pins.
One reads: “My Classic Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe”.
The other: “The Most Mouth-Watering Chocolate Chip Cookies You’ve Ever Tasted!”
Which one are you more likely to click on?
Pin. Titles. Matter.
5. You just plain don’t like designing pins!
You know you need to keep feeding the Pinterest beast to keep your traffic up. But designing pins from scratch makes you want to cry.
We all have those blogging tasks that we avoid like the plague. If you find yourself constantly procrastinating your pin designs, it may be time to cut yourself some slack.
We all have our strong suits. And there are other bloggers, designers, and VAs out there we can lean on for the things we just dread doing.
If you hate designing pins, chances are you aren’t going to do a great job at it. End of story.
6. You want to take your Pinterest marketing to the next level
Maybe you use Pinterest, design your own pins, and are seeing some traffic from your efforts. And perhaps you also see how potentially powerful Pinterest can be and really want to take your account to the next level.
Hiring a pin designer could be the difference between getting some Pinterest traffic to your site or making Pinterest your number one source of traffic (like it is mine).
If your pins are okay but you know you’d get more traffic if they were a little more eye-catching and professional, outsourcing your designs can potentially pay for itself in the long run.
7. You don’t know what Pinterest wants
The Pinterest algorithm changes constantly! It can be hard to keep up with the best Pinterest practices. Hiring a Pinterest expert ensures your pins are always in line with what Pinterest wants.
Not only can you hire out your pin designs, but you can even outsource your pinning! I see pinners making huge mistakes every day that are costing them traffic.
By hiring a pro, who has devoted their business to Pinterest marketing, you’ll be confident your account is reaching its full potential.
