Pinterest Affiliate Marketing 2019  – Can you Do Affiliate Marketing on Pinterest Without a Blog?


Are you even allowed to use direct affiliate
links on Pinterest? That’s one of the questions I get very often about
affiliate marketing on Pinterest. Can you use Amazon affiliate links on Pinterest?
How do you do the affiliate disclosure to be safe? Which other affiliate networks you
can use on Pinterest? So many questions! And in this video I will show you what
you should do with the filling links to increase your affiliate income with
Pinterest free traffic. Hi! I’m Anastasia of AnastasiaBlogger.com.
I’m a Pinterest marketing expert. And if you want to learn more about Pinterest

Pinterest tips. And before we move into any details, I want to answer a very
common question about affiliate marketing on Pinterest. People often ask
me: can I make money on Pinterest with affiliate links if I don’t have any
website? And in theory, you can because your links will go directly to the site
of the product you are trying to sell as an affiliate. But, in reality, you will
find out that most of the affiliate programs will require a website upon
registration. So you will be filling out applications to join any affiliate
program or network and on most of them you will have to provide a website. Some
networks probably will allow you to add links to your social media profiles and
in this case Pinterest would work perhaps. But just be prepared that most
of the affiliate programs will require a domain, a website. Another thing you need
to check out as soon as you join any affiliate program is whether or not they
allow using direct links from social media. for example I’m showing you one of
the affiliate networks I’m working with it’s called ShareASale. It has products
from many different niches. As you can see, all the categories here. And if you
don’t know where to start and how to find great affiliate offers
you could start here on ShareASale. Because it’s a very big network, and most
probably we’ll find something that suits your
audience in your niche. And once you are accepted to ShareASale network, you
will have to apply for each individual affiliate program separately. So you
don’t have access to all of them by default, just by joining ShareASale, okay?
And before applying, you can open each specific program and read their Terms
and Conditions. Some of the programs will specifically focus on affiliate links in
social media but I have to warn you that not all the programs even mention this
rule about social media. For example for this particular product in their Terms
of Service they say clearly: social media promotion
on Facebook Twitter and other social media platforms is permitted but you need
to follow several general rules. And if you read carefully what they want from
you here, they’re just saying that you are welcome to use affiliate links on
your Facebook, Twitter accounts and other social media platforms. So, you can use it
on your accounts but you are prohibited from posting these affiliate links on
PicMonkey’s social media accounts that that then wouldn’t make sense to go to
to to the official page of a PicMonkey and post and post to your affiliate
links there that doesn’t make any sense. So that’s the only rule! So basically you
can use for this program and there are many other products that are clearly
stating that you can use social media links. Now let me show you how you can
create a pin with a direct affiliate link and I will keep showing you this
example from ShareASale. So we’re going to first upload the pin image on
Pinterest so we’re going to upload this pin, add a pin description, pin title
first, then pin description with all the keywords we’re trying to target with
this pin and with relevant hashtags of course, and one of the hashtags will be
#affiliate. You could also use a hashtag #sponsored or hashtag #ad – this is for
disclosure because Pinterest is following FTC guidelines.
It’s a common practice on the Internet that you have to make a disclosure. In
this case, you’re just putting these hashtags. And I wouldn’t recommend doing
this mindlessly! You have to actually do the keyword research and add all the
keywords related to the product you’re advertising. Otherwise, your pin has very
little chances to generate a lot of clicks. If you want to learn how to do
keyword research on Pinterest, I have another video about it. You’ll need to
click on this info icon on the top right corner to open that video and watch it
later. I also have Pinterest SEO Traffic Secrets Course for those of you who want
to dive really deep into all the rules of search engine optimization for
Pinterest platform specifically. These strategies will help you grow organic
traffic, meaning you will have to do the work but you don’t need any ad budget
for this traffic. And to finish the creation of this pin we need to add a
destination link so in our case it will be an affiliate direct link to the
product we go to ShareASale and among the other links to the product I will
check the default text link. You click here get the code and you choose select
URL only I copy that code and I will insert it here in the destination link.
Now, to save this pin ideally you would have to create or already have a board
that has this exact main keyword that you’re targeting. But since I’m just
showing you an example I don’t have any board that really has the same keywords
like image editing, image editing app in the title. So I will just save it to one
of my to my biggest board where I save everything related to my site. I’m gonna
click publish. Now, let’s see what we have in this pin so here is the pin, and if
you look down to the left you will see to the left corner you will see that the
link goes it’s an affiliate link and it goes to the PicMonkey website. So having
direct links from pins was one of the ways of using Pinterest for affiliate
marketing. And another way which could work even better in my opinion is
by adding your affiliate links on your website or your blog. I’m showing you
here an example of a post about best gifts for Mother’s Day.
As you can see, here in this blog post. You create a collection of great gift
ideas and you explain why each of these gifts is so amazing and this
provides additional value and builds trust. So people read your post and they
really feel that they should try and they should go and buy that gift. The
same applies to products like PicMonkey from my previous example. If you just add
send users like I showed you directly to PicMonkey’s landing page, people
might get interested but since they don’t know anything about the tool they
will just leave the site without buying. But if you send them to your blog post
where you explain how to use PicMonkey and why the tool is so great, you’re
adding value. Let me show you from this pin we’re going to this blog post it’s a
long blog pos,t she has all the screenshots, all the instructions, it’s a
full tutorial and she even has a video. So you’re adding value and you’re
building trust So, conversions are much higher in this
case if you use links NOT direct links to to the products but to your blog post.
But, of course, the second methods when you’re creating a blog post or some
information on your website it requires more work from you so if you’re doubting
me you could just try both of these methods and see which works the best I’m
sure that depending on the product price it can be easier or harder to sell with
direct affiliate links it depends on the niche and on the types of products that
you are promoting with your affiliate links now that you know how to create a
few little pins let me give you a little more idea about which are the best
affiliate programs that will work great on Pinterest so the biggest huge and
authority platform is Amazon people trust this platform people buy easily
from Amazon because they know that the mine is safe
so you could create affiliate links right here in Amazon Associates Program
and then you link them to your pins another platform you will find really
efficient for Pinterest audience is ad C so ad C also has an affiliate program
and you can find the link to this affiliate program at the footer of the
site and you will see that Pinterest users love products that are sold on NC
its art handmade crafts brought craft products so NC products are just created
for Pinterest users and if this video helped you share it on Twitter Facebook

  1. And Amazon US also does not allow affiliate links on Pinterest. People are still doing it, but it's not allowed.

  2. UPDATE about popular networks and direct affiliate links from Pinterest:

    Amazon US doesn’t allow direct affiliate links from Pinterest, so you might want to use method #2 mentioned in the video if you want to leverage Pinterest traffic as an Amazon affiliate marketer.

    Amazon EU seems to currently be OK with Pinterest links – at least I see an article about affiliate links on Pinterest in which Amazon confirmed direct links are allowed. https://amazon-affiliate.eu/en/affiliate-links-allowed-pinterest/

    If you were wondering about direct affiliate links from Pinterest to Etsy products, unfortunately, they are no longer allowed. In Etsy’s ToS they have this info: direct affiliate links on most of the social media are allowed, but not on Pinterest and Tumblr. https://www.etsy.com/legal/affiliates/

  3. magic links is also a source similiar to ShareaSale but you don't have to apply to multiple programs unlike shareasale
