The interesting facts about pinterest is that more than 72% of pinterest users are Womens and over 83% of users do purchase after reading a brand’s pins or content. 

And also you can use pinterest to drive traffic to your website. So getting results depends on how you use it.

Go and search something about like (ex: Best web hosting) a lot of us already make a content about so you go check it how they create the content and how they create their pins. After you research, we move to the next step.

2. How to pick a right product

A lot of us made mistakes in choosing a product because people can choose produce randomly without a target. So first you need to choose a niche. Niche means nothing but a specific topic like(health and fitness, Dating, online tools, and more).

Pick the right niche ( for my opinion you can select digital products like email marketing service, Blogging tools.and more.).

The important thing is to pick a high paying affiliate product because if you pick low paying product that will generate a low revenue.

When you publish your first pin without an optimization or without image quality which does not grow. You need to spend some time to create pinterest pin images. I use “Canva” which is one the best graphic design tool. you can use it to create a quality and highly conversion pin image.

Create a pin image with 3D elements, bold text,create an image with 1:2 ratio size and add a keyword to this image.

Canva has a lot of free pinterest pin templates available you can easily acces that or if you have a design knowledge create a unique template for your brand.

4. Upload Image for Pinterest Affiliate Marketing

Before uploading your pins image Do some keyword research about what you choose to promote. Use google keywords planner to do keyword research or use pinterest keyword planner to research.

Don’t pick a single word keyword, choose a long tail keyword with minimum 500k search volume.
