Let’s begin with step 1.

Step 1: Set up your Pinterest account for success.

To be successful making money on Pinterest, setting up and starting right is the best thing we must go first. Here’s how to set up your Pinterest account for success.

Registering an account. 

  • Register a Pinterest account.
  • Choose language and country.
  • Add your business name. To help people find you on Pinterest.
  • Tell Pinterest about your business. ( Just tick the one that you think applies to you.)
  • If you have a website. Link your website. If you don’t have a website, it’s okay to leave it empty. Just click “Later”
  • Connect your other social media accounts to Pinterest. You can also choose to do these later. If so, just click “Later”
  • If you are asked if you are interested in running ads, choose the one that applies to you. Don’t worry, you have control of this one. Just click “I’m not sure yet” If you can’t decide now.
  • Choose a topic that best describes your business. Choose at least 1 but choosing 5 will do good.
  • Last but not list. Get the Pinterest Browser Button to make it easy for you pin on Pinterest. You also skip if you think you don’t need this now.

Setting your account. 

Pinterest is very good at visual marketing. Therefore, uploading high-quality images and videos will surely help you build yourself an audience that will convert into loyal clients, customers, or visitors to your blog or website.

The recommended size for Pinterest images is 600 x 900 px.

 

Step 2: Create Pins.

Creating “Pin” means uploading images. When uploading images be sure to optimize your title and description with your target audience.

What is your target audience? For example, if you want to target people interested in Fishing. Then make a pin title like this.

Title: 36 tips to be good at fishing.

Description:  If you are looking for the best tips to become good at fishing as fast as possible and enjoy your next trip. We have 36 tips for you.

What did you notice? You may have noticed that I have included my target audience in both the Title and Description. It’s “tips to be good at fishing”

Surely, people who are into fishing will get on that.

Do this for all your pins. For every pin that you will create. The last thing you know, you have already build your audience.

 

Step 3: Create Boards

So what are Pinterest boards? Basically, it is like a container to organize all your pins.

For example, if you have pins that talk about fishing,  then you will make a board that contains all your pins about fishing and so on.

How to properly set up your board? Actually, to be successful in making money with Pinterest, setting your board is important. Below are important tips.

  • Be sure to name your board accordingly. If it is about fishing, name it Fishing or something about fishing.
  • Do not tick the “Keep this board secret” or no one will find it.
  • After you name your board according to your target audience or target keywords, Pinterest will show you related pins, to get started,  be sure to save them on your boards.

 

Step 4: Save other pins and follow other boards. 

By saving other pins and following other boards, you also build your profile. You simply input your keywords into the Pinterest search bar and you’ll find a lot of pins to save.

 

Step 5:  Follow people around your target audience or keyword.

At the end of the day, Pinterest is also a social networking site. The more you connect to people who have the same interest as you, the greater the chance to be successful.

 

Step 6: Create Pin, Repin, Follow Every day.

Consistency is the key, if you create a pin, repin, and follow people every day, there is no reason why you can’t succeed with making money online on Pinterest.  This is just how it works. 

To automate the process, TailWind will help you do the work.

Let’s proceed with the actual steps to make money online with Pinterest. If until here you have not set up your  Pinterest account according to basic steps from 1 to 6. I recommend going back. It will help you before proceeding.

Let’s begin with how to make money on Pinterest without a blog.

 

6 Steps How to make money on Pinterest without a blog.

While it is good to have a blog to make money with Pinterest, it is also completely possible to make money without a blog. Follow the step by step guide below and you’ll be good.

Again, only follow these steps given you’ve set up your Pinterest account properly as we have discussed above.

Step 1. Help your target audience

 

In my given example above, I talk about fishing, so let’s say, we wanted to target fishing. Basically we will find people who are interested in fishing and find products that will help them in their fishing hobby. This is what we are going to do.

Find Products or affiliate offers that will appeal to your target audience. 

Since we are targetting people who are interested in fishing,  they will most likely purchase tools to go fishing.

So how do we go about that? Find an affiliate offer.

What is an affiliate offer? It is a product that you don’t own but if you make a sale, the product owner will willingly pay you.

In this example, we will find an offer in Amazon.

  1. Go to amazon. ( Or an affiliate site you can find.)
  2. Search for a product that relates and help your target audience.

If you have done these two, let’s proceed with step 2.

Step 2. Create a Pin

Creating a pin means creating a high-quality image that relates to the product you wanted your audience to check and buy.

Here’s an example. 

With these, you don’t have to own a single site or blog. After uploading your pin, all you have to do is directly place your affiliate link to the destination link as shown below.

Step 3: Create aboard.

Already we have discussed that the Pinterest board is like a container that gathers all the same pins.

Why it is important to create a board? We create a lot of variations of our offer. To drive more people to the product.

Step 4: Create a lot of pins.

Creating a lot of pins for the same product will get you high exposure to your target audience and will eventually lead your target audience to buy the product.

Step 5: Repin every 10 minutes.

To have more people in your pin and click the offer. We need to repin it many times, repinning it every 10 minutes is a really good marketing strategy.

However, it is impossible to repin every 10minutes manually. So you need tailwind to do that. You can register a free trial account here. 

Step 6: Save other pins to your boards.

Saving other pins to your boards will get you more followers and exposures.

Now, I know that it can be overwhelming, so if you want me to do the work for you, just contact me for an agreed price.
