Two years ago I had a 9-5 job that stacked my bank account but drained my soul. I started my blog, CurlsUnderstood.com, just so I'd have something creative to focus my energy on.

Who knew that decision would change my life.

When I started blogging, my goal was to make it my full-time gig but as I watched other blogger's monthly income reports grow, I struggled to gain the traction and traffic I needed
to make a steady income.

I wondered why is it that some bloggers and influencers explode, while other equally talented people fade into oblivion?

I was determined to make my blog a success and not have it fall into the online wasteland
of failed blogs.

I started researching online advertising (too complicated), working with influencers (too expensive), I even thought about creating an elaborate YouTube channel (too time-consuming).

Exasperated, I turned to my Google Analytics to see what blog post topics were working
and which weren’t.


I noticed that referral traffic from Pinterest was higher than any of my other social platforms.
I was on to something...

Why bloggers, influencers + businesses NEED this course!

As a blogger, influencer or business, your brand’s core currency is the number of eyeballs you have on your site and social platforms.

These people become your TRIBE (readers, followers, subscribers, and eventually, customers).

Without a tribe, the amount of money you make from online ad revenue, affiliate marketing, brand sponsorships, and products will be limited.

Once I kick-started my platform with the traffic it needed, the money started to follow. Opportunities presented themselves without me even trying.

This course will show you how to build a successful money-making brand you can be proud of.

Hi there! I’m Sylvia – a digital strategist with 10+ years experience building online brands for non-profits (AARP) and start-ups (Bumble & Bumble founder Michael Gordon's Hairstory) including my own site CurlsUnderstood.com.

I founded Curls Understood in 2014 and built it into a 260K+ online community for women, which includes 26K followers on Pinterest and an email list of 10K+.

With a faithful tribe I launched a successful subscription box for curls, published two eBooks and I currently consult for Unilever – one of the biggest corporations in the world. All because of blogging!

I’ve also been featured on FOX 5, Allure Magazine, Buzzfeed.com, MindBodyGreen.com, and Black Enterprise.

Introducing #PinterestPaid

Over the past 2 years, I’ve grown my Curls Understood’s Pinterest account
from 0 to 1.9M monthly views.

Over 6 weeks, I grew my personally branded Pinterest account
from 0 to 130K monthly views.

I’ve uncovered and reverse-engineered the 8 strategies YOU need to implement and
grow your Pinterest monthly viewers to your first 100K.

The more aggressively you use these techniques, the higher your monthly views and
the higher your referral traffic from Pinterest to your site.

You can also use Pinterest to drive traffic to YouTube, Instagram or a
sign-up landing page for your email list.

This is the flagship course of the #IdRatherBePaid Academy and I'm launching this
Beta version to a limited number of people.

People can share and bookmark to their accounts images/graphics (i.e. “pins”) that interest and inspire them. It is the social elements of this platform that make pins go viral.

Unlike Facebook/Instagram posts or tweets which have a shelf life of 24-48 hours,
pins are EVERGREEN!

Like fine wine, the more your pins mature the better they get
(their reach increases with time).

Your goal, as a blogger, influencer or business is to create the best pins for your content and
get as many people as possible to pin them.

As pins linked back to your content go viral, traffic to your platform will grow significantly!


  • Could it help your blog finally reach 5K+ unique visitors per month?
  • Could it jump start your new e-business' email list to its first 1K?
  • Provide 2-3 new clients per week with minimum effort?
  • Maybe it could increase your subscribers and followers to 10K+ on all your social platforms?
  • Perhaps you could sell 5 digital products per week and bring in an extra $2K per week?
  • Thinking about starting a career as a Pinterest VA earning up to $50 per hour?

These strategies have been tested and proven
. And not just on my sites. I’ve coached and consulted with fellow bloggers and brands to grow their platforms…

Moral of the story: This course is grounded in proven principles and strategies that work. It’s broken down into simple, step-by-step modules that allow you to easily walk through each of my Pinterest strategies.



What topics does the course cover?

This course covers these 3 main areas (using 8 easy-to-follow modules):

1. How to get to your first 100K monthly views on Pinterest

As I grew my presence on Pinterest, I documented every step of the process so I could teach you how to do the same:

  • You’ll learn what options you have for automating pinning (which I highly recommend).
  • You’ll learn how to identify the blog post topics, images and graphics that work best on Pinterest for your niche.
  • You’ll learn how to easily create pins that are engaging and encourage people to repin.
  • You’ll learn how to review your Pinterest Analytics and Google Analytics to adapt your pinning strategy and get the best results.

Every strategy will be meticulously broken down so you can easily follow along and implement them for yourself.

2. How to set up your Pinterest business account and site correctly

We’ll start at the beginning and lay the foundation:

  • You’ll learn how to set up your Pinterest business account, including all the technical aspects step-by-step.
  • You’ll learn how to create an engaging profile page in order to entice the right followers and page views for your niche.
  • You’ll learn how to configure your site and web browsers to make pinning more efficient for you and your readers.

I’m going to give you an easy-to-follow blueprint to set up your systems to manage your Pinterest account and site for maximum effect.

3. How will investing in a Pinterest strategy make you money?

This is the $1,000,000 question…

This is where it gets really fun.

  • You will learn the exact techniques I use to gain 10K+ email subscribers for CurlsUnderstood.com and 1K in 6 weeks for SylviaKerali.com – I then launched products using these lists.
  • You will learn how to leverage Pinterest to send content to your highest earning pages/posts/videos.
  • You’ll learn how to optimize your site and social platforms to start receiving higher amounts of traffic due to Pinterest and therefore increase online ad revenue, affiliate marketing, and brand sponsorship rates.

The strategies you’ll learn here have generated for me on average $1500 in sponsorships per month, $2100 in affiliate marketing revenue per month, $900 in ad revenue per month, and $110K in online product sales.

Frequently Asked Questions

How soon will I see results after taking the course?
As soon as you have finished the course and start implementing these strategies you’ll start to see results! I tested these strategies with my new blog SylviaKerali.com and within 6 weeks my Pinterest account had reached 130K+ monthly viewers (and 5K page views to my blog.) Also, think of Pinterest as a long-term strategy. The more pins that you create and add to Pinterest over time, the more success you will experience. Some pins can go viral months after being pinned.
Why the focus on growing monthly page viewers and not followers on Pinterest?
Great question! Back in the good old days, most social platforms let your posts show up chronologically in your follower’s feeds, but now they use complex algorithms to decide who sees what. This has impacted follower growth and retention. On Pinterest (and Facebook, Instagram etc.) engagement is becoming just as important, if not more so, than the number of followers you have. Engagement truly validates how useful your content is. My course focuses on how you can attract engaged viewers who will convert into your faithful tribe.
How long do I have access to the course?
How does lifetime access sound? After enrolling, you have unlimited access to the course for as long as you like - across any and all devices you own. Plus, this course won't always be offered at this price, as new strategies and information will continually be added. You won't have to pay a penny for any updates, though. Once you purchase, you will receive all updates for free.
I was wondering if you are going to cover how to make money from growing my Pinterest monthly views?
Absolutely! There is an entire module on how to monetize your blog and brand using Pinterest. That’s why the course is called #PinterestPaid! The strategies in that section allowed me to launch my curly hair subscription box and gain 300 box subscribers and $8000 in one week!
Will this work for someone who runs an online business or is a social media influencer?
Absolutely. All of the strategies taught are built on universal marketing principles. Whatever niche you’re in or business you have, Pinterest can be used to skyrocket your email list, social media following, site traffic and sales.
What if I'm literally starting from ZERO? No audience. No products. Will this course help?
Yes! It's specifically engineered to take a COMPLETE NEWBIE and show you the exact steps you need to go from zero to 100,000 monthly page views on Pinterest.
Can I afford this right now?
At the end of the day that's a question you have to answer. Are you blogging for popularity or for profit? If it’s the latter than you have to invest in yourself / your business at some point. I can tell you that the strategies in this course made me over $140,000 last year. I now work for myself full-time and travel around the world because of my blog. The pricing model is specifically designed to enable beginners to get started without breaking the bank. Instead of just one flat fee for the entire course, I also have monthly payment plans. (This makes it more affordable).
How often SHOULD I work on it?
The more you work, the faster you go. If you're looking for a get rich quick scheme, this isn't the course for you. But if you're willing to work HARD and follow a proven plan, you will succeed.
Will this course continue to be updated? And will I get free access to future versions?
Yes! This will be my flagship course of my #IdRatherBePaid Academy and it will be updated on a regular basis. Once you are enrolled, all future versions are free at no cost. Pinterest is changing all the time so I will keep you abreast of the latest changes that affect our Pinterest accounts.
Is this actually possible?
Of course! You'll have a major advantage as Beta participants because I’ll be holding you accountable. I’ll also help you figure out exactly what works and what doesn't. I’ve been doing this stuff for 10+ years ☺
Do you offer refunds?
I would never want you to be unhappy! If you are unsatisfied with your purchase, contact me in the first 30 days after purchasing the course and I'll give you a refund. But, you must show me that you went through the course and took action because none of the tips and methods I share will work without you taking the time to implement them.
