  • But making money by pinning on Pinterest is far easier than other methods just because you can spread your affiliate link directly on this platform.

But Don’t be spammy by posting, again and again, only affiliate pins.

Pro Tip:- If you are using Affiliate links embedded Pins on Pinterest then make sure to disclose this that you are using affiliate links in your pins Clearly so to keep your profile safe from penalizing by Pinterest.
(You’ll get to know about my favourite resource of making money through affiliate marketing at the end of this post. So stay tuned..!)

Choose the best method you like from the following surefire ways to make money on Pinterest in 2018

Choose the right Niche

You can not pin anything on Pinterest without proper research about what are people searching for.

I want to say that find the niches that are evergreen on Pinterest and the topics that grab the interest of the people.

Unlike other articles on the internet, I don’t want to emphasize on the thing that the audience majority of Pinterest is female. But I just want you to look at the other aspect that some of the men brands are rocking on this platform.

So the conclusion is you can draw the attention of the folks by introducing the right product.

Here are some examples of the topics that are evergreen on Pinterest

  1. Health and fitness
  2. Weight loss
  3. Travel
  4. Home Improvement and DIY etc.

Choose an Awesome Product to Promote

I hope you have chosen your niche the next step is to find the right products to promote.

You can find hundreds of Products to promote on Pinterest from ShareASale, MagickLinks.

MagickLinks lets you avail an opportunity to choose any product from various e-commerce platforms including eBay.

The process works as Choose any product from eBay and copy the link of the product page and cloak it on Magicklink.

Whenever someone purchases something from that link you will be compensated. Thus you don’t have to apply to become an affiliate on an individual platform.

It’s that simple.

(I’m not including ClickBank here because Pineterst have blocked my affiliate links of Clickbank products, if you want to make money on ClickBank without any blog, then check out this page )

Pro Tips: Don’t pick any product that promises to give you high commission instead go for the one that is actually worth to share with your audience. Because whatever you introduce to your audience will build your credibility and make you an authority.

If you don’t have time to create your own blog then I highly recommend you to own a pre built blog with promoted affiliate products. These blogs are found to be very profitable and the best thing is you can choose the niche also.

Create Stunning Pins

You can use an online software Canva (totally free software but you can upgrade to paid plan) to design your pins.

Some bloggers suggest for PickMonkey software to create good pins.

But I can’t recommend you PickMonkey as I have never used it (because it is a paid software 😛)

Here is handy Checklist of Creating awesome pins that will help you design pins that might bring traction to your product page.

  1. Try to design products pins yourself instead of picking from the vendors.
  2. Focus on what your audience needs to have.
  3. Observe what is trending on Pinterest (Pinterest automatically suggest trending pins according to your niche)
  4. Observe what kind of pins getting most shares and repins
  5. Keep Experimenting with designing your pins
  6. Here is an example of my transformation of perfection in designing pins (I also design pins for my clients, if you want me to design for you, just email me at admin {at} selfHostedLife {dot} com)

If you follow these steps you may expect to have your pins found on Pinterest.

  • I don’t want to scare you but still following all the steps mentioned above you may not get any sells for months. (unless you are lucky enough, but businesses run on strategy not only on luck)

I want to make it clear for you But wait, see the traffic status first of my blog

Make Money On Pinterest Google analytics of SelfHostedLife.com


So, from May to July 25th I was not getting the considerable amount of traffic. After pinning 10-15 times a day there was not any good traffic status to show you.

Why? What was the reason ??

The reasons that I found responsible for that low traffic are

  1. My pins were not appealing
  2. My boards and pins are not SEO optimized
  3. I’m pinning manually without having any strategy
  4. I simply go on Pinterest and starts pinning randomly here and there
  5. I had no clear idea that what pin I’m pinning and on what day in fact sometimes I pin the same pins again and again. (Thankfully I had not caught as a spammer)

So how I have resolved these Issues?

The first three points have resolved by Pinterest Traffic Avalanche course created by Alex and Lauren the 6 figure bloggers and their blog Create and Go is receiving hundreds of thousands of page views per month alone from Pinterest.

You have also seen that my Pin designs are getting perfect day by day because I have learned how to create pins that bring traffic back to my blog.

I have also learned very much about Pinterest SEO from Pinterest SEO modules given in the course. There are lot more things I’ll be explaining in my coming post that’ll be fully dedicated to PTA course.

The 4th and 5th issue gets resolved by Tailwind (a Pinterest officially recommended pin scheduler).

I have started using Tailwind from July 18th and within a week I have noticed growth in my Blog traffic (as you can see in the image above)

As a beginner, you might be thinking why to invest in tailwind to schedule pins. So I recommend you not to go for purchasing Tailwind in the first instead go and grab the free trial for a month from here.

One of the most reliable reasons to use Tailwind is Tailwind collects the data of your Pinterest profile and the data of your audience (not personal data, it only recognise when your audiences are live on the platform) and suggests you the best time to pin your pins on Pinterest.

Hence you seem to be pinning at the right time when your audience is live. Thus you can expect to have a great conversion on your affiliate pins.

Analyze the stats and optimize your marketing strategy

Till this stage, you have set up everything and the next step is to wait and watch and try new strategies.

Head over to Pinterest analytics and find out which kind of Pins are getting most traction and how people are engaging with your content. Check out the video about how to use Pinterest Analytics,

Now, Optimize your strategy to maximize the results.
