Does your product-based brand fit in these boxes?

You want to strengthen your reputation as an ethical brand and access a wider audience of conscious consumers.

You know paid advertising can bring a significant return on investment but aren’t sure where to look next.

You’re ready to stop wasting time and money on platforms that aren’t providing steady sales.

Without a solid strategy, social media can suck
(especially for sustainable brands)

The social media landscape has become increasingly hostile for eco-friendly SMEs.

Greenwashing is flooding the online market. Organic reach is plummeting. Algorithms are changing at a head-spinning rate. iOS updates have pummeled Facebook and Instagram ads with email marketing potentially next.

Sustainable brands are scrambling to keep up but lose too many hours trying to boost engagement and “beat the algorithm”.

As a genuine sustainable lifestyle brand, we’ll help you:

  1. Reach the right people: conscious consumers
  2. At the right time: when they’re in the buying mindset
  3. In the right place: on the go-to shopping platform that’s possibly the friendliest place on the internet – Pinterest!

So you can stop fighting for the attention of followers and cursing Facebook.

And focus on converting cold audiences to raving fans faster on Pinterest. With more cost-effective and consistent results than other social platforms.

“Chantell is amazing. She manages all of my Pinterest (organic and ads) and Facebook ads for my small digital product-based business. Firstly, she is extremely professional and does everything she says she will do, on time. She gives me constant updates and is extremely organized… She keeps on top of all changes and updates with the social and ad platforms (which is happening CONSTANTLY) including having meetings with people from Pinterest and Facebook on my behalf. She is always adapting strategies to get my ads performing at the best they can be and making the most money they can be. I really appreciate being able to take 99% of this stuff off my plate because it’s not my strength, and Chantell makes it very digestible and manageable.”

Erica Hartwick, CEO of Big Cat Creative

What makes Pinterest different from every other platform?

Unlike other platforms where users become annoyed by seeing products, Pinterest attracts a “high intent” audience. Users with a buying mindset are actively looking for novel new ideas. That means they are generally more receptive to relevant, aesthetically-pleasing advertisements and product-related content.

  • Pinterest is both a social media platform and a visual search engine. So your reach isn’t limited to your followers.
  • New content (i.e. pins) can be discovered through personalised home feeds, curated inspiration, shopping spotlights, popular trends, and searches for new ideas.
  • Pins are perennial. Lasting 16,000x longer than a Facebook post, Pinterest pins could be bringing in buyers months after publishing.

“Chantell has been fantastic to work with – I love not having to even think about social media marketing more than a couple of hours per month. She crafts great content, manages the reporting, and makes it easier for me to connect with clients around the world. Save yourself the time and energy of managing multiple social media accounts and hire Chantell!”

Kate Bagoy, Business Coach & Consultant

Let me introduce myself

I’m Chantell – a Pinterest Advertising Specialist, eco enthusiast, and occasional travel writer.

After living in eight countries across four continents, I’m happily settled in my home state of Queensland, Australia.

This is where I spent the first decade of my career in higher education and corporate finance. With the exception of one pivotal year on Wall Street.

Chantell smiling

I’ve always felt drawn towards digital marketing and thankfully, found the courage to make the switch in 2015.

Now I’m proud to have worked with 150+ companies including tourism boards, B2B service providers, and B2C lifestyle brands.

In the past six years, I’ve managed two digital marketing agencies offering the full suite of services from search engine optimization (SEO) to pay-per-click (PPC) advertising.

This is how I realised the untapped potential of Pinterest for product-based businesses.
Pinterest is quickly becoming the go-to shopping platform and its updates support this trajectory.

As someone who deeply cares about sustainable living, I want to help eco-friendly brands get in front of conscious consumers so you can increase your social impact and sell more with integrity on Pinterest.

So, whether you’ve never heard of Pinterest or have a profile but don’t know what to do next – let’s have a (virtual) coffee and see how I can help.

WORKED WITH

Worked with

True story: Starting in 2015, I built a travel blog and tour business from the ground up to over 60,000 followers. I decided to sell the business in 2021 so I could specialise in Pinterest advertising for sustainable brands.

Chantell created an incredible workshop on mastering Pinterest Ads for my blogging membership. My members were blown away — not only by the quality of the presentation but also by just how much Chantell knows about Pinterest. She gave loads of examples showing results she’s gotten for clients and broke down step-by-step how others could also see success with Pinterest Ads. I couldn’t have asked for a better instructor on this (often confusing) subject!

Frequently asked questions

How do pinners see my content on Pinterest?

  • Pinners can use the search bar to type in keywords. These will then be matched with relevant content based on matching keywords, quality of content, and engagement.
  • On the Pinterest mobile app, pinners can see relevant pins on their home tab.
  • Each pinner can follow their favourite creators and visit their profiles to see their shop (with products), most recent pins, and their Pinterest boards.

Do I need a large collection of images and blog posts?

  • To begin, you’ll want to have at least high-quality imagery of your products
  • Videos, or at least a willingness to record videos, will be beneficial
  • Blog posts aren’t necessarily essential but may be recommended.
