When I first logged into the training I admit I rolled my eyes at all of the modules. But as I started going through the lessons, they are short, actionable snippets that are easy to follow.

Hashtag hacks for Pinterest?? What is Pinterest even doing with hashtags?
First they are a thing, then they aren't, then they are, or are they?
Honestly finding out detailed information about Pinterest and hashtags is rather frustrating. However, we will look at a strategy for making them work to our advantage without getting Pinterest's knickers in a knot.

Now that you have a Pinterest for Etsy business account all set up, are you wondering; "how in the heck can I keep this going?"
Do you need to know how to make pins fast and effectively?
How about how to pin the different types of pins? And how many pins?
