3. Work with Not A Bond Girl As many long time readers know, I've been preparing for the different Pinterest marketing projects that are coming up.

So far, I've mainly helped businesses to leverage as a search engine tool. Pinterest SEO strategies have gone a long way when it comes to driving traffic. But great designs are key to viral content too!

Over time, many clients have requested help with creating infographics and pin designs. These clients include startups, small businesses and established brands.

Designs are fun. I can design pins and infographics, but it's just not my strength. SEO is more my jam! Which is why...


I am outsourcing all Not A Bond Girl design work.

As I prepare different Pinterest marketing proposals for clients, I'll be building a portfolio of designs they can choose from.

Do you have pins/infographics in your portfolio to show off?

Currently, I received 1.5 million views on my best month via Pinterest. So that'll be a decent amount of eyeballs on your designs =)

To have your designs uploaded on to my boards, please create pins and infographics using content from NotABondGirl.com/blog. This includes blog titles, quotes, copy, and so forth.

If approved, I will upload your designs on to my Pinterest boards for clients to choose from. If clients choose your design, I will outsource the design project to you.

Basically, I take care of the SEO strategy work, you handle the design work.

For the graphic design rates charged to clients, please see the Services page. When clients choose your design, you'll take on the design efforts and be paid according to NBG rates.

You will receive 40% of design package rate. NBG receives 60% for the SEO and administrative work provided to clients.

Some percentages will vary slightly depending on number of pins and infographics needed. To give you some ideas, here are a few key elements to consider when designing pins and infographics:


Please submit designs to Hello@PinfiniteMarketing.com

Please include your website and social media account handles. I will use this information to credit your work in pin descriptions and other relevant areas.

When submitted, please allow for a few business days for a response. If your designs are uploaded, I may be promoting your design work on other social media platforms as well.

Occasionally, Not A Bond Girl pins that go viral tend to get stolen. This means other Pinterest users have changed the URL of NBG pins to direct it to their sites. I always report these stolen pins immediately to Pinterest.
