How to Increase Website Visitors

Erin at Wealthy Affiliate

Erin's Success Story

This online business success story is about Erin, who has been with Wealthy Affiliate since 2016. She unlocked the full potential of Pinterest and learned in a big way to increase website visitors.

Erin posted in an earlier blog how she had accumulated 49K monthly viewers on Pinterest. The very next day, she had 54K monthly viewers. That was an increase of 5,000 views in one day!

What's Erin's secret with using Pinterest? There is no secret at all. She is on it daily, as part of her routine. Working with Pinterest is one of her tasks that she enjoys doing.

A later post has Erin's monthly viewers at 88.8K. This monthly viewers total translates into 4K monthly engaged followers, which means lots of activity around her boards. The result would be more activity on her websites.

Erin's Success Started Before Wealthy Affiliate

Erin already had a string of success when she joined up with Wealthy Affiliate.
