If you’re thinking you should start a Pinterest management business, you might also be wondering how much it’ll cost to get your business idea off the ground.
As more and more things go online, it is now possible to run an entire business virtually! I run my Pinterest Management business from home with my favorite tools and software to help make that happen.
You likely already have some of the essentials on hand!
1. Computer ($500)
First, you’ll obviously need a computer. You might already have one but if not, you can get one at Best Buy or Amazon. There are all different kinds of price ranges based on your budget so you can choose exactly what you’re looking for.
The average computer is about $500 and it’s what mine costs, but really you can get anything. Just do the research and see what you like.
2. Website (~$100/year)
To start a Pinterest Management business, you definitely need a website. It looks so much more professional and legit when you have a website you can direct potential clients to.
With a website, you’ll be able to display all your services, pricing, and contact information. I personally use a WordPress website hosted on Siteground but there are many options out there at various price points.
The pricing varies a lot but on average, a website can cost you $100 year.
3. Client Relationship Management tool ($350/year)
Next on the list of things you might need to start a Pinterest Management business is a CRM tool. This isn’t totally required and when I first started out I didn’t use one… but it’s definitely worth it!
I use Dubsado to manage all of my client inquiries, invoices, proposals, and contracts. With this tool, you can set appointments, track your transactions, send payment reminders and so much more.
It is the system that keeps everything organized for me! I highly recommend considering using a CRM if you can swing it.
But when I first started out, I simply sent over my contract documents via email as well as my invoices through Paypal.

4. Contracts & Agreements (varies)
Another thing you’ll want to consider is having your business legally protected. As you start to work with clients, you’ll want to make sure all your ducks are in a row and you’re using proper contracts and agreements to protect yourself.
When I first started out, I was writing my own contracts which is *okay* when you’re a beginner but seriously, you’ll want to start setting aside some money to invest in a real legal contract ASAP.
Here are some places where you can grab a contract:
5. Continuing Education
Last but not least, you’ll want to be sure that you’re educated and informed on Pinterest marketing before you actually start running other people’s accounts. Maybe you’ll invest in a course at the beginner to show yourself the ropes.
As Pinterest is constantly changing, you’ll want to be sure that you’re investing time and money to stay up to date on the latest trends and algorithm updates. You want to have the most accurate information and strategies on Pinterest so that you can get results for your clients.
