8 Effective Ways To Make Money Online – Using Pinterest

 

Product Promotion

Pinterest allows you to pin photos of interest to your profile. The first and most obvious way of making money through this social network is the promotion of the products appearing on your corporate website or blog.

People are mainly visuals creatures and they are immediately attracted to photographs. Having high quality pictures of your products pinned will instantly give you a chance to maximize sales and to increase the number of loyal customers that you have.

 

Affiliate Marketing

Pinterest allows you to pin products from Amazon or another network that you are an affiliate of. In order to make money, you will obviously have to use your affiliate link for each pin. Websites such as ClickBank.com supply you with affiliate links when you sign on board with them.

When people follow the link from Pinterest to the specific website, you will be seen as the referrer and you will be rewarded with the commission of each purchase generated. Once again, make use of Pinterest’s visual appeal and get new customers for the products that you are promoting. Just make sure the products you are promoting tie in with other pictures and items that you share on your pinterest account, you don’t want your boards too look too spammy.

 

Re-Pin Other People’s Contents

In order to make money on Pinterest, you will have to expand your network. Your message needs to reach a big number of people, in order to be effective. Having a large network is also signifying that your photo will get re pinned several times, which will enable it to reach a larger audience.

Pin and repin the contents that other people share. As a courtesy, these individuals are very likely to promote your pictures. The larger the audience, the higher your chances of success.

 

Target The Right Audience

According to official Pinterest statistics, the social network is attracting mainly female audiences. Knowing the people that will be seeing your message and achieving a certain degree of targeting is essential if you are willing to make money on Pinterest.

Pinterest comes with different channels and categories. Choose the right ones for your photos. Each category will be viewed by a specific audience and you want to be addressing the people that are most likely to make a purchase.

 

SEO On Pinterest

Search engine optimization is an important part of online marketing. If you are to be successful on Pinterest, you will have to keep SEO techniques in mind.

Your profile and your photos should have the right descriptions that will allow people to discover the information both on the social network and through search engines. This way, you will be increasing the exposure. Don’t forget to use the # tag in front of keywords to help searches find your pin ie… #Beauty, #Motivation Picture etc….. Also don’t forget to leave a link to your site or your product in each pin description so it is more visible for your average visitor.

 

Contests

Launching a contest on Pinterest may be a great way to introduce a new product or to increase the popularity of your company. Naturally, the aim of the contest will be for more people to see your photographs and to become familiar with your company or affiliate network.

The easiest thing to do is to organize a Pin to Win contest. Come up with some small award that will stimulate other Pinterest users to pin your photographs and to spread the message to their networks.

 

Pinterest for Market Analysis

Apart from being a direct channel that can be used to make money, Pinterest can also be helpful in terms of market analysis.

Explore the website and see which profiles and which photographs are enjoying popularity. This way, you will get some sort of idea about the interests and preferences of Pinterest users. Knowing what consumers want will help you come up with the best advertising strategy.

 

Social Media Integration

Pinterest information sharing can be easily integrated with Facebook and Twitter. This is a tremendous way to reach a larger audience. Making use of this feature is the best way to get the message across multiple channels and to increase the number of people that will be exploring your products.

 

It is possible to make money on Pinterest, as long as you know what you want to achieve. Familiarity with traditional internet marketing techniques can be helpful. Even if you are a novice in this sector you have a strong chance of success using Pinterest to make money. Take your time to study the social network and make sure that the photos you are sharing are of high quality. These two prerequisites will determine the outcome of your campaign.
