Pinterest Traffic Takeoff

A no-fluff, step-by-step guide to driving traffic to your travel blog using Pinterest. 


What if your travel blog attracted thousands of engaged visitors and put money in your bank account every single day?

Not only can you achieve this, but you can do it without overwhelm.

(I know you're skeptical, but bare with me for a second.)

Okay, so which of these sound familiar?

  • Churning out your best travel guides and wondering if anyone is even interested. I mean, how many Europe itineraries does the internet need? 

  • Spending hours on Facebook share threads every week and getting a handful of clicks to your posts, if you're lucky. Hint: Facebook share threads are a massive waste of time!
  • Frustrated with editing and posting photos nonstop to your Instagram account, which isn't growing either. Hint: Instagram can grow your brand. Your traffic? Not so much.
  •   Tired of reading generic 'How To Grow Your Traffic' posts that provide vague advice and leave you more confused. Hint: stop reading them now. Like, today.
  • Unsure how to promote your blog posts like the bloggers who get 30k, 40k, or 50k page views a month. Hint: there's a smart system to grow your traffic, and anyone can follow it.
  • Wondering if it's possible to build a profitable travel blog that allows you to share your passion with the world while making money. Answer: yes it is!

Did you nod your head to any (or all) of the statements above?

Then, you're in the right place!

Here's what I know about you:

You have a burning passion for travel, and you want to show others how to discover the world. #wanderlust

You are bold enough to pursue the life of your dreams, regardless of what friends or family may say. #laptoplifestyle

You are committed to learning and doing whatever it takes to build a profitable travel blog. #hustler

I kn

But when it comes to getting people to read your blog, you feel like you're pulling teeth. Hey, I feel your pain. Not too long ago, I was swimming in the deep sea of traffic confusion. No freakin' clue how to get people to read the Spain travel guides and solo female travel tips I spent so much time writing on my travel blog, Somto Seeks.  

In fact, in the entire month of December 2017, I got a grand total of 42 page views. No kidding.  

When 2018 came around, I decided that something definitely had to change if I wanted to make an income from blogging. You see, I had quit my nonprofit job and committed to being a full-time travel blogger. I wanted to pursue a life of travel, freedom, and purpose. There was no going back so I rolled up my sleeves and started investigating how to drive traffic to my blog (and lots of it!)  

That's when I discovered Pinterest, and it changed the trajectory of my blog forever. First, I invested over $400 in Pinterest courses and coaching. Then I dropped Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, and everything else that was taking up my time.  

Within 3 months, my traffic grew to 12k, and that was just the beginning. It kept climbing. There were some dips here and there (just for full disclosure.) But the overall trejectory has been upward.

Nowadays, thanks largely to Pinterest, I'm getting as much 78,000 page views a month to my blog. 

I don't publish 5 blog posts a week - more like 2-3 blog posts per month

I don't spend 3 hours everyday promoting content - more like one hour per week.

So what exactly do I do to get traffic without spending all my time writing and promoting content? It boils down to my Pinterest strategy, which I'll tell you about in a second.


Why Pinterest?


Okay, I know you've probably heard bloggers rave about Pinterest. You already have a Pinterest account, and you're trying to figure out how many times to pin in a day and what boards to pin to. But let's take a step back for a second: what exactly makes Pinterest such a great source of traffic?  

It's because Pinterest is a visual search engine that levels the playing field for bloggers. Unlike Google, it doesn't care about the age of your blog or the number of links you've gotten from other websites. It just wants to show relevant content to its 300 million users and help them discover new ideas.  

People go on Pinterest to discover new destinations, plan their vacation, find out what to pack, and more. In fact, travel is consistently in the top 10 most searched categories on Pinterest.  

This means that travel bloggers can get lots of traffic from Pinterest with the right strategy. Yet most travel bloggers either don't know how to use Pinterest or are using Pinterest the wrong way.  

Over the past 18+ months, I've experimented with strategies to drive traffic to my travel blog using Pinterest. Now, I want to help you demystify Pinterest once and for all. You'll master how to create AND properly promote click-worthy images (known as pins) that drive thousands of page views to your website, like these ones:  

 Pinterest consistently sends me 35k+ page views every month. That's more than Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram combined!

With the traffic coming from Pinterest, I hit the 25k sessions requirement to qualify for the Mediavine ad network ahead of plan. I made over $600 in my first month with the network. That's 3x what I made during my 2 months with Google Adsense! 

I've compiled the Pinterest strategies that I've used to help travel bloggers double their traffic in weeks into a comprehensive ebook.

I get it: Pinterest can be overwhelming. Pins? Repins? Personal boards? Group boards? How does it all work? I break it all down in a way that's easy to digest - no jargon, no fluff. Through videos, illustrations, and detailed explanations, I will show you how to use Pinterest effectively to promote travel content

You'll notice that most Pinterest gurus blog about blogging or making money online. What works for them might not work for you. 

I've taken many Pinterest courses and tried strategies that didn't work for my travel posts. I want to save you from making the same mistakes! Travel is a different beast, and I'll show you how to approach Pinterest as a travel blogger.

So, what's included?  

This 125-page ebook is the most comprehensive guide to Pinterest for travel bloggers, based on tested strategies that work for promoting travel content. It explains in simple English the core components of Pinterest you need to understand to become a Pinterest pro - what I call the 5 P's of Pinterest. These are the components that lay the foundation for a successful Pinterest strategy:

- Profile

- Personal boards

- Pin design

- Placement of keywords

- Pinning strategy

You'll learn what to pin, when to pin, and how to pin to maximize traffic from Pinterest. In addition to mastering the basics of Pinterest, you'll also get specific tips to use Pinterest effectively depending on where you are in your travel blogging journey. 

After taking this course, you will not only have a system to drive traffic to your travel blog using Pinterest, but you'll also understand WHY you're doing what you're doing. No more guesswork!

When you enroll in the course, you'll get: 


14 chapters of actionable content

"My blog will soon turn 1 year old and since the start I have been struggling with Pinterest. It didn't matter what I did or how many courses I bought, nothing seemed to work. I was even thinking that Pinterest is not made for the travel niche, and was starting to panic until I stumbled upon Somto and her Pinterest knowledge. After implementing her strategies, I immediately noticed my website traffic doubled. Pinterest finally started making sense and it was beautiful to see my chart go up every day.

So who's the Pinterest expert behind this course? 

Hi, I'm Somto! I'm a solo nomad and travel blogger who loves to tour castles and ancient ruins. I started my blog, Somto Seeks, in late 2017 to escape the 9-5 grind, share my greatest passion - travel - with the world, and become my own boss. 

Thanks largely to free traffic from Pinterest, travel blogging has become my full-time job. Now, I've worked with dozens of bloggers to grow their blog traffic using Pinterest. One of my greatest joys is helping others rapidly grow their traffic and achieve their blogging goals. 

But things weren't always this good. When I started my blog, I had no idea how to drive traffic to my blog or make money with it. In my first year of blogging, I made only $6,500. I felt lost, overwhelmed, and unsure about whether I could make blogging work for me. 

Since implementing the strategies in Pinterest Traffic Takeoff, I've grown my blog traffic to almost 80k monthly visitors, quadrupled my income, and landed lucrative brand partnerships and sponsored posts. I'll be speaking at Travel Con in May 2020.
