Hi there! Thanks for joining me! My name is Vanessa and I am a Pinterest Strategist and creative consultant for creative entrepreneurs.
What is a creative consultant?
I might have been creative in creating that job title, but it best describes what I do! I love to serve creatives and their growing brands. I have experience in the many components of running a creative business–content creation, social media management, coaching and brainstorming sessions, affiliates, and everything in between–because creatives do it all! I come alongside the creatives, picking up what their limited time leaves behind, or listening as they unwind their ideas and helping stitch together a cohesive plan.
What is a Pinterest Strategist?
I love the beauty that creative entrepreneurs bring into the online marketplace and their work inspires me. I have worked with a variety of brands and entrepreneurs. They all had one thing in common, though–loads of work and a finite amount of time! Cue me! My strengths lie in technical details–bringing the geek to the creative party with an eye for beauty and design.
Many of my clients were established businesses that knew exactly what they wanted: a trusted assistant who could curate high quality design content and act as a voice for their brand, without hand-holding and constant instruction. I implement their ideas in line with their vision and voice, giving them brand consistency across all media platforms. Very quickly, Pinterest emerged as my favorite platform. Why? It has an incredible power to exponentially grow brand awareness through pinning and drive traffic to your site. Pinterest is Cinderella at the ball, misunderstood but ultimately winning the heart of the prince. Don’t miss the clock at midnight- Pinterest is still very underused by creative small businesses, but there will be a time in the future where the market is more competitive and you have to pay to play like other platforms.
Why I created vanessakynes.com
I created this site to serve as a resource for my growing client list when they had questions about how to utilize Pinterest. You’ll find a lot of videos and resources about my favorite platforms and specifically how to manage and drive traffic to your website through Pinterest. Listen in, if you have a brand that is marketing to women, you absolutely need to be on Pinterest. No question! I can help you get started and even provide a consultation to answer all of your questions.

Personally, I am a wife to a professor whose career has taken me all over the world. We lived in the UK for six years and our time navigating life away from family and raising small children overseas taught me a few things that translate well for an online business. One, you can always learn something new and two, experiences are more important than things. As a homeschooling mama to three, I want to be intentional in my children’s lives and model ingenuity. Managing an online business, with the support of my husband, gives me the mobility I desire to explore as a family and choices with my time to live life intentionally.
My heart for this website is to serve you! Thanks for joining in! I’d love to hear from you at hello (at) vanessakynes (dot) com.
