Let’s break it down and see what the two are.
1. Pinterest Affiliate Marketing
How to Make money on Pinterest without a Blog
Back in 2015, there was a time when Pinterest implemented prohibiting “direct affiliate links” on Pinterest due to a flood of spamming contents and the abuses of the Pinterest ecosystem.
Not too long since then, just on May 12, 2016, Pinterest re-announced that affiliate links were once again allowed on Pinterest that they equipped the social media with a better and more efficient spam filtering system and the confidence to protect from spammers and abusers, the safe environment of their community.
Since then, Pinterest has been becoming the one of the most fantastic sources for affiliate marketing and came back to internet/affiliate marketers as a gold mine due to its superbly high engagement and converting rates of its users, plus with the biggest perk: the majority user locations from the U.S and other top tier countries which are more likely to be converted for actual sales and purchases.
I suppose Pinterest affiliate marketing is one of the easiest methods that you can carry out your affiliate marketing campaigns by. And as its one of perks, it’s no need of a blog or website through which you have to redirect traffic to the affiliate landing pages. (Destination pages)
In fact, what it takes to make your Pinterest Affiliate Marketing work are just as hassle free: one or a couple (As per your personal need) of your Pinterest account(s) , a graphic tool by which you can create your Pin images, and most importantly, an affiliate link(s) that you’d like to promote to the audience in your niche.
Again, Pinterest is a super great social platform that can possibly produce a tremendous amount of high quality online traffic and exposure to your pins that end up possibly producing a lot of affiliate link clicks and purchases.
I bet it’s just a matter of time that you can make lots of affiliate sales through Pinterest just when you get a creative, helpful, informative, and appealing pin going viral within the social channel. Just don’t forget attaching your affiliate link in your popular pins, that drive you a good number of sales.

Tips on How to Expose Your Pins as a Pinterest beginner
Unless you’re already one with an established large following base, it’s always a hair pulling stressful part to think up about how to get the eyeballs when you’re a beginner and just a baby pinner in Pinterest.
You would need traffic in order to promote and sell your affiliate products and HOW when you just have none to a small following base there?
Now I gotta say “don’t worry dude, it will just come as easy and an instant effect to bringing traffic onto your pins if you understand the algorithm of Pinterest.”.
As said briefly just earlier, Pinterest is more like a “search engine” rather than a social media. It’s a visual based search engine where users search for the images and graphics that they want/need.
So what’s the most considerable factor to win traffic from Pinterest is neither how large your currently existing following base, nor how many fans you have for your pins and boards unlike other social media. But the more important point to actually determine your Pinterest success is “how favorably your pins are indexed on the search engine” to be searched by millions users out there and engage with your pins.
High rates of user engagement mainly made up with “Repins (Pin Save)” and “Post Clicks”. Yes, straightforwardly that’s it. that’s the most significant attribution for Pinterest to recognize your pins are popular and loved by people, and to decide to drag up your pins onto the top search ranking result on the particular keyword. Eventually, that leads your pins to expose to thousands of eyeballs.
It couldn’t be any easier to get traffic on Pinterest once your pin(s) goes viral (it needs it to be visually eye catching first of all..) and gets indexed high in the search engine. And to make it easier to happen, especially when you’re a beginner with just none to few followers, I highly recommend you to join in “pinterest group boards” as a contributor so you can share all the already existing followers ready to see your pins you publish.
With that way, if you succeed to drag a good amount of attention and user engagement out of the group board followers, then it will sure be recognized in the system and in the end, it jumps up to the top search engine result or possibly featured on Pinterest feed that brings tons of tons of tons of traffic and followers to your pins and boards! It, then, just repeats the way favorably over and over that will solidify your Pinterest presence over time.
2. Pinterest Influencer Marketing
How to Make money on Pinterest without a Blog
As another way to make money on Pinterest is using the Influencer Marketing method.
It’s now becoming a new normal since the time companies and brands recognized the importance of influencer marketing AKA “Viral Marketing”.
Companies pay you to pin on Pinterest that advocates, endorses their products/services, or that just includes their product lines in your pin for the effect of spreading the brand awareness.
It pays you more when you have a larger following base. It’s simply the larger pool of your followers, the higher rates paid for you and it’s usually per-pin based for the payment paid by companies.
On the market average, it seems that $20 per pin is paid for an account of 2,000 – 5,000 following base. As having observed in the market transactions, some mega deals like $500 to $1,000 per pin has been watched, just depending on the volume of one’s following base and what niche it is.
Good places to start off your Pinterest influencer marketing campaigns on are a bunch like Fiverr, Upwork, Freelancer.com as such freelance gig marketplaces, or more helpfully on more dedicated social influence marketing platforms like “Loop 88”.
Loop 88 seems a nice place to work on with if you have a good number of followers at least more than 5,000. And the followers should be niche-focused in a certain area(s).
The most popular niches for Pinterest Influencer Marketing are “Fashion” , “Cosmetic & Beauty Products(Make-Up)”, and “Home Decor” etc. They are the ones that boast the highest rate of demands by companies and brands; it’s higher chances to get offered a collaboration opportunity if your niche and audience are focused in one of the said industries.
