Well, I received my invite from Pinterest the other day, and I was putting it off. I'm an amazon affiliate, and actually didn't think Amazon would encourage sharing on Pinterest, but apparently they do, since they have a button for it on their product pages.
BUT, I remember reading that Pinterest actually strips the affiliate code out and places their own in. I don't know how they can even get away with that, and if it's legal! Anyways, I'm trying to think of a way around this. Maybe those of us who are affiliated with amazon could do this:
1. Use the "Link to this Page" option in the site strip
2. Get the html code for the image of the product, and put it onto our own webpage as part of a collage of similar products
3. And underneath each one, we can have a link that says something like "Read Amazon Reviews".
4. Then you could just use the share to pinterest button, and as soon as it's pinned, just go to edit the url on the pic to your own sites address. That way, you're just basically linking to a larger collection of similar pics, and these will all have your Amazon affiliate tags in them.
I haven't tried doing this yet, cause I just signed up with them, and wanted to see what you all think about this. Also, for any review sites you have you could use Pinterest to link to the actual review page for the product. I know people on social networks aren't really in the buying mood, but I don't know, maybe there's some potential there if you had enough stuff on there.
