Why Pinterest? It’s a visual search and discovery platform and gives people their next big idea. Pinterest is a one-stop shop for inspiration, new products and new possibilities.
Did you know? Pinterest has 454m monthly active users around the world. Each month they’re looking for ideas to help them plan, visualise and create a life they love.

Although I actively embrace all forms of social media for myself and my clients, I have previously only ‘dabbled’ in Pinterest. It was after taking part in one of Dörte’s Pinterest coaching sessions that I truly began to find the love. Understanding that Pinterest is more of a search engine than a social media platform, and creating content that really works and drives traffic has been part of this journey.
“I loved the Pinterest Workshop. It was inspiring, motivating and also really impressive how such a huge subject was tackled so clearly and concisely.”
