Pinterest – Internet Marketing Possibilities

I have recently joined Pinterest, a content sharing service that allows members to “pin” images, videos and other objects to their pinboards.

I am currently posting videos onto my pinboards and just making friends. One Pinterest user reported earning $1,000 daily by posting links to affiliated offers from He was using bots and spamming the pinboards with thousands of product images and links daily.

This is not a sustainable model for earning a revenue using Pinterest. Around 80% of the users are women, so you might want to create pinboards around items that would interest them.

You can create pinboards and post videos and images related to makeup, fashion, celebrity gossip… you can include affiliated links in the description text to drive traffic to your offers.

There are also a growing number of Pinterest users that are using it to promote products from their own online shops.

You can start off by joining Pinterest and following people that you are interested in. Start re-pinning and liking items that from the people that you follow. This will increase you visibility within the Pinterest community.

Your pins draw interest by having a large number of people liking them and also re-pinning them.

You can also use Pinterest  to drive traffic to your blog posts by including a pin-it button on your blog. Make sure that your blog post contains an image to use on the pin. You posts will get more pins if you provide an image within your post. People are lazy, most will not bother to find a relevant image for your post, they will stop them from pinning your post.

You want to make it as easy as possible to get your blog posts pinned by readers. This is free source of viral traffic, once your post is pinned it may attract likes and re-pins.

There are reports on the internet that Pinterest is valued at $2 billion! There is currently a lot of activity on Pinterest, you can use it to drive traffic to your site and offers. You will need to make your pins really interesting to generate the traffic. Check out existing pins from others users that have had the most likes and re-pins. This will give you an idea of what the Pinterest community is searching for.
