Affiliate Program on Pinterest?

7 replies
HI there,

Can you tell me if I can put a link to my affiliate program on Pinterest?
Or if not, how can we use Pinterest to share our Program?

Many thanks

Christelle

    There was a recent report that Pinterest will not allow affiliate links anymore.

    But you can use your own website, even a free blog and add that link to the Pin description.

    Think of how stupid the average person is, and realize half of them are stupider than that.

    I've heard they cut down on that... removing your link...

    just today I saw a post from a warrior, that said he used a redirect page... and that still worked... although I would just check the pinterest site... if its not allowed, in the long run, it could kill all your work...
    Hope this Helps

    If you have a product website and use Wordpress, there are plugins for "Pin It" buttons on your product images. I use these on my site and post to Pinterest.

      I use Pinterest and they do block some of my JV Zoo links and in those cases yes to my site.

        You can link your pins to your website, but I wouldn't put affiliate links on those pins. Consider putting the affiliate links on your website instead.

        I couldn't find anything in Pinterest's Terms of Service, or Acceptable Use Policy specifically prohibiting affiliate links. But I read a few recent articles that mentioned that Pinterest is starting to accelerate its removal of affiliate links in pins.

        So it seems just a matter of time before affiliate links won't work there.

        Rethink MLM. This is modern MLM, and it doesn't get any better than this. A 20 dollar bill will easily cover both entry and the first (financial eBook) product. After that, there are NO monthly fees, NO autoships, NO quotas, NO PVs, and NO physical stock - so no one quits. (The 5 other product levels are paid AUTOMATICALLY by profits, not out-of-pocket.)

    Pinterest will ban your account if they find affiliate links in your posts. You have to use your blog and share those blog links on Pinterest.

    Post on your blog nad then drive traffic to blog using Pinterest.
