Making Money with Pinterest?

Pinterest is kind of a new trend when it comes to making money online. Do you use Pinterest to promote your products/services? If so, how? :-)

You can be honest here, because I am going to steal your method

    I don't really use it actively yet, but I get a lot of traffic from it all the same.

    How about yourself?

      I am a complete newbie there. I just learned you can post YouTube videos, instead of images.

      How you go about generating traffic?

        I see. Yup. You can go with YouTube videos as well...

        Well, I don't actually go about actively generating traffic. I just optimize my blog posts with lots of nice and interesting pictures to the mix, and people add those pictures to Pinterest and drive traffic to my site for me.

        I think it helps to add some floating Pinterest buttons to your posts as well.

          Can you add flash and animation to the images? Do you have an example of floating Pinterest button?

    I have just started using pinterest as a method of generating traffic. You basically should aim to get access to large contributer boards with loads of follwers. You start following loads of people who have say over 300 followers, then set up a load of boards of your own and add them as contributors to your boards. You will start to get loads of follwers but the important thing is people will start to give you access to their boards with thousands of followers, you can then simply pin on their boards with good call to actions and get good traffic...I learnt this from another thread on here ages ago, Il see if I can find it and PM you

    Check my thread about how I make money via pinterest, let me quote it for you here:

    1. Research a hot niche to target women - $0
    2. Buy domain and hosting - $20
    3. Buy PLR or unique article - $10 to $50
    4. Build a wordpress blog, add amazon products, create call to action - $0 if you do it manually, up to $50 if you use WP plugins
    5. Post your articles - $0
    6. Add adsense to your site - $0
    7. Drive traffic from pinterest! - $0 to $50
    You can buy pinterest pins and followers from fiverr for faster result.

    If you want to see result faster, use adsense to monetize your site. And do research about high CTR layout. You don't have to buy expensive theme for this, get Atahualpha wordpress theme and you can create whatever layout that you think have highest CTR.

    Second fast result is Amazon blog.

    Seriously guys, it's not hard to market on pinterest. All you have to do is pin good quality images for your niche, and there you have engaging content to present to your followers.

    After you get your adsense or amazon check, replicate, scale up, create your own product to sell and so on... you know the drill

    There you go guys, less than $200 and not a rocket science. Good luck!
    What do you think?

    I don't use it as much myself, but if you make some attractive photos that lead to your site with a lot of people following you, there can be a good flow of traffic.

      Yes, that's the whole point ... people following you so that you can get an audience to your pinned boards and images. I am not trying to get traffic to a website, but to Kindle books on Amazon.

          Do you have experience with CPA and Pinterest?

          There's a chick Kaci Kennedy who does over $100,000 with CPA and Pinterest. She's an excellent marketer, so that's part of the equation :-)

Since Pinterest started deleting your affiliate ID from an Amazon link the only way to get around it is sending traffic to a website and then sending them to Amazon.

    Since Pinterest I've been adding all my sites images to it. In one way or a mother.

    You'd be surprised at what people are posting.
