Are you ready to make $5K per month with Pinterest? In today’s blog post, I’ll share how to do this by following a few simple steps, and anyone can start their business with affiliate marketing.

You might not be aware of it but even if you have little or no experience, earning passive income through affiliate marketing is possible!

Make sure to stick around until the end if you want to learn how to start earning thousands of dollars with Pinterest.

Let’s not waste any time and dive in!

Step #1 Get a Pinterest Business Account

With a business account on Pinterest, you can take your Pinterest game to the next level. You’ll see what content is performing and why it’s resonating with people to figure out what pins are working and which ones are not.

If you want to grow on Pinterest, it doesn’t matter what you sell. You need to make sure that you’re analyzing your data. By reviewing your analytics, you’ll be able to make intentional decisions on what content does well and create more of it. This will have a huge impact on the growth of your affiliate marketing business.

Step #2 Choose A Niche

To find your niche, think about what you are most passionate or knowledgeable about. Many people choose their own interests and hobbies! The key is to make sure that the account has a specific focus to attract new followers who share similar passions and grow steadily over time.

For example, if your micro-niche is Keto Lifestyle, you want to make sure any content you pin to Pinterest is relevant to Keto. Any pins you share from other pinners are also relevant to the Keto lifestyle. This will help you not confuse your target audience nor the Pinterest algorithm.


Step #3 Find Products To Sell

I recommend using Clickbank to find products and services that you can promote on Pinterest. I would look into products for sale with high pay and those that might offer residual income opportunities.

I like Clickbank because they have tons of products to promote from all niches, and many affiliate companies offer you everything you need to succeed with affiliate marketing. Whether it’s ad copy or email swipes – they’ve got what you need!

When choosing your products, make sure to read the terms of conditions of that affiliate program to make sure they promote their products on Pinterest. If you’re unsure, you can always reach out to the affiliate manager. And always promote products that are selling well because they give you better odds of making money online.

Step #4 Use Canva To Make Pinnable Images

The next step is to use Canva or another design software of your choice, and make images that you can share on Pinterest. If you’re unsure what types of pins to create, try doing a quick search for the topic in question on Pinterest- there are often many different ideas and inspirations available from people who have already created content related to it! You can find pins that are already performing and model those pins to create something similar.

Step #5 Pin Other Pinnners Content Who Have Similar Interest As Your For More Exposure

Pinning other Pinner’s content that has similar interests as you will help to expose your pins more and potentially rank higher in the feed. You can pin those pins on top of the feed with high rankings, which may also give them exposure!

Step #6 Start A Blog

If you’re serious about growing your affiliate business and want to start earning a lot of money I recommend starting a blog. It will make it easier for you to collect emails, grow your brand, provide more value, and add also give you other monetization options.


Step #7 Start an email list

If you’re looking for a new way to build your customer base, consider starting up an email list. It would be best to create some lead offers that could include anything from a free ebook to offering them something of value for exchanging the email. Then all you do is nurture those leads and remarket to the products and services you offer.

Step #8 Turn On Google Adsense

If you have a blog and want to earn some extra money – you can do so with Google Adsense.

You’re going to get paid by the number of visitors who come through on any given day – so all it takes are just a few clicks per month (or more) in order for this method to work out great for you and add an additional stream of income.

Step #9 Diversify your blog with different affiliate marketing offers

One of the most important aspects you must consider when trying to make money on your blog is diversifying with different affiliate marketing offers.

A single website will never be able to generate enough revenue, so it’s vital that you spread out and find other sources for income generation as well!

Step #10 Pin Consistently

The last step is to pin consistently to see real growth and explode your blog traffic by leveraging the power of Pinterest! Start with a quality post that will resonate well and find relevant people in your industry or niche. Pin their posts so they can get more shares from you. You’ll be surprised how quickly those pins start getting them new readers on other social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter too!

So there you have it, the 9 steps to help you start making money on Pinterest and how anyone can become an affiliate marketer. These are just a few of my secrets for success in this industry!
