I’m not sure when Pinterest started but according to google it was launched in March 2010. it was almost 10 years ago. I remembered my coworker from the Mirage hotel job I had talking about this app. At that time, I had own an Motorola Android phone and I’m never going back to android because of their software. I loved it at first because it was customizable and you can add more GB buy inserting an SD card but I’ll stick with my Apple iPhone XSMax. I’ve always been an Apple fan, but we’re not here to talk about that.

Why do I love Pinterest?
When I saw the numbers of my monthly viewers on my account, I switched to have a business account because I had a Shopify website at that time selling fashion apparel and accessories.
I was very active on the app everyday whether I was on my breaks from work or when I’m home till late at night pinning like a crazy lady.
I checked my analytics and I was like WOW, there’s a lot of people looking at what i’m pinning. I didn’t think you could make money online with Pinterest until I started reading all these blog websites I found on Pinterest.
Last year I decided to start a blog. I didn’t know what niche because I had so many interests so I narrowed it down to my top 3 and I choose travel & lifestyle.
I was always reading these blogs about how you can make money online with Pinterest and I came across with creating pins with affiliate links. I was thinking about what type of products will I promote, how will I promote them and can you really make money with affiliate marketing?
In general, you can make money online with affiliate marketing pretty much anywhere whether it’s on your website, social media accounts, youtube and also your email.
I wanted to share the 3 Easy Steps to Make Money online with Pinterest that you can make today.
- Sign up with an affiliate program like Amazon or Clickbank. Btw, they are free to sign up, all you need is your email address and your account for your cash deposit.
- Create Pinterest graphics on Canva, which I highly recommend even if you’re not a designer. I love this app! You want it to be eye catching with a title and description. Don’t forget to put #ad on description if you’re adding an affiliate link. I like to create 3 pins with the same information but change the elements such as the text, photo and shapes.
- Pin it to multiple boards that are relevant and that’s it. Most pinners require at least 10 pins a day and I also recommend to have 10-15 pins a day.
Everyday, I’ll log on to my affiliate accounts and see if there were any clicks or purchases and it turns out it’s working. People are clicking the links.
The thing about Amazon is you can promote a ton of products and people will buy it, however, those links are good for 24 hours.
With Clickbank, their products have higher commissions, so you could make 1-2 sales a day and it could be $100+ on 1 product.
It’s always about the ad and the time you post this pins. The content that you create will drive people to click the link and eventually make a purchase.
Start Pinning and make some money online today!
