Our February discoveries include an amazing online course ? informative podcast, useful article & download, Pinterest inspirations and a magazine to help us switch off and plan adventures!
Our favourite online course
Of course, we have to mention our online course
Do you like to work at your own pace?
Are looking for an easy to follow, step by step guide to get started on Pinterest?
Do you want to learn some easy and effective ways to drive traffic to your website?
Then this course is for you!
We totally understand that working for yourself means you’re already time poor. There are only 4 lessons so it isn’t overwhelming and won’t take so long that you’ll have to give up as it’s taking up too much of your time. You do get out what you put in though and we promise..it is worth it!
We’re starting to get some great feedback from creatives who have enrolled.
“I’ve just signed up to your course. Only two lessons in and I’m already making improvements to my Pinterest feed! Can’t wait to see the rest ? ” Kayleigh Excell
“I used to think I had a good handle on Pinterest until I started this course and realised how much I didn’t know – I’ve learnt so much! It’s given me an excellent grounding in how to use Pinterest more strategically and has really helped me focus on my brand. It was well structured, easy to follow and thoroughly enjoyable. I’ve never been so excited to complete my “homework”! It was also really helpful to have Georgie and Dörte on hand to answer my questions as they came up in the Facebook group. I can highly recommend this course to anyone looking to understand more about Pinterest and how it can help to market your small business. “ – Zoe Power
Our favourite podcast
Lucy Lucraft – What She Said. Lucy is a freelance journalist, blogger, & podcaster. She creates amazing content for ethically-conscious women. Her podcast is a series of insightful interviews with working women. We absolutely loved the episode with Cat Rose – The Creative Introvert. They talked about personality tests to find out if you’re an introvert or an extrovert, how you get motived and to tell you something about yourself that will help you in your working life. Try this fun Personality Test and get a ‘freakishly accurate’ description of who you are and why you do things the way you do. We were a protagonist and a campaigner. Can you guess who was who??

In this episode, there is a Q&A all about Pinterest, from what it even is, to how to set it up, Pinterest inspirations and how to be strategic with it.
