- Build an audience, follow your passion, and sell to them.
What do you enjoy doing the most? You can make money if people spend money in an area you love.
Let’s say you’re obsessed with fitness. You enjoy staying fit and being fit. You decide who you want to reach: women in their 20s who want to look good and be fit. Make a Pinterest record and sheets that draw in this crowd.
Establish a mailing list and attract board followers. Some avid Pinterest users have more than a million followers. To sell to your audience, you don’t need a lot of followers on your account. Don’t worry if you don’t know what to sell. Marketers will approach you with offers once you have a few thousand followers.
2. Select a business to promote and request sponsorship.
As previously discussed, narrow your focus and grow your Pinterest following. Then, choose businesses that sell products that your audience will like. If you want to stick with our “fitness” audience, you could approach businesses that sell sports drinks or gym equipment.
The businesses you approach should see your Pinterest account’s statistics and inquire about sponsorship opportunities. Give them a discount: They can use your account’s branding for a year.
3. Promote products from affiliates.
Affiliates who will promote their products in exchange for a small commission on sales are sought after by many businesses. Sign up as an affiliate when you locate businesses that sell products that you can promote. Then, at that point, advance the items on your sheets, utilizing your subsidiary connections.
Tip: Manage your links with a service that shortens URLs like Bitly. You’ll be able to keep track of how many clicks have been made on your boards and pins.
Concerning spam. Pinterest takes action against affiliate marketing spammers on a regular basis. Link your pins to your own website, where you can use affiliate links, if you get caught up in this.
4. To get found on Pinterest, implement search engine optimization (SEO) strategies.
Use SEO techniques if you want people to find your pins and boards if you want to make money on Pinterest. You will be discovered on Pinterest as well as the major search engines, such as Google.
Maximize the potential of your “About” section. You have 200 characters, or roughly 50 words. Use the keywords that you anticipate searchers will use to be clear and descriptive.
Your pins should also make use of SEO techniques. Make the most of the 500 characters (roughly 100 words) that each pin gives you for a description by including keywords and links. Keywords should be included naturally rather than in a spammy way.
5. To promote your own products, organize contests on Pinterest.
You might want to use Pinterest to sell your own products. Think about holding contests. They have a lot of fans and can help you earn money.
However, keep in mind Pinterest’s guidelines:
Pinterest protects the experience of its users. This is fantastic because it guarantees the network’s continued expansion.
6. Re-pin other people’s pins to gain attention and money.
Being active is the easiest way to get people to re-pin your pins because Pinterest is a social network. Pin the pins of others, especially those in your target audience. They’ll see you, and they might even start following your boards.
7. Teach other people how to use Pinterest to make money.
A small industry has developed around Pinterest as it continues to expand, with developers creating tools to assist Pinterest users.
After using Pinterest effectively for some time, you might want to think about teaching other people your methods to make money. Create courses and e-books that teach what you’ve learned.
