How Can You Make Money with Pinterest

There are tons of other ways for you to earn money online. The best known is by freelancing or working as a blogger; however, people also have more subversive ways of making money.

Making money as an entrepreneur requires a lot of effort and skill. Some people make money by investing in stocks. Others make money through marketing on platforms like Instagram or Pinterest. But while with stocks, there is already an established industry around strategic planning – market analysis, specific predictions such as this deo stock forecast, and portfolio diversification – the affiliate marketing world is still relatively new. You can’t just go on Pinterest and expect to be rich via clout. There are certain precursors to making money off of these platforms.

Well, first of all, Pinterest is best for affiliate marketers. The network will serve mostly female audiences who are very much into shopping. They make money by posting or “pinning” items that would seem interesting to these women and those posts will be affiliated with another link. This is why there are a lot of items or pins on objects from It is actually 10 out of 10 that the Amazon link will be an affiliated one. And that is not all! There are various other ways (as entrepreneurs like Chance Welton might tell you) that you could use and get your affiliate business going!

Nonetheless, before you can start earning money with Pinterest, there are some things that you have to do.
Make Money with Pinterest

Cloak The Links:

If you are planning to Pinterest by posting affiliate links, you have to cloak it. There are services for this, Skimlinks, this scans the network for affiliate links then automatically change those links to their affiliate ID. It is best to custom your link with a short URL. It is not advisable to known services like or Tiny URL. Skimlinks will most probably have them in their database already. But the best cloaking service is said to be LinkTrackr. Not only will LinkTrackr let you monitor the clicks and the conversions. You’ll be able to custom a short URL that will be outside the Skimlinkss database.

Host Images On Your Server:

You have to host all the images you pin on your server. Pinterest links all the images back to the source. If you’re getting them straight from the Amazon, the person who clicks on the link will immediately be directed to the website. And of course, since you won’t be able to link an image with your ID, it will be best to send the user directly to where the host image and the post links are.


There are bots to monitor spamming, especially in the process of creating accounts and posting pins. Pinterest will get better at monitoring and detecting spam pins. Take your time in posting pins of stuff that you are interested in. link those pins with LinkTrackr and continue on building it up. And most probably, you’ll have gotten your own Pinterest page with tons of items with an affiliate link and you’ll make more money of it.

Don’t forget that this isn’t all about making money. You have to be responsible while doing this because if you don’t, you obviously won’t be making enough money. You have to be patient with this type of work, not everyone click on the links on website, so that may be the challenging part for you. The more people you get to click on the clicks, the better. Be creative and work your way in improving how to lure people in clicking your links.
