Using Pinterest for Affiliate Marketing

Pinterest is an online Scrapbooking program. If you can find an image on the internet, Pinterest will allow you to connect it to your account.

Your account is organized into folders (Pinterest calls them Boards) Each board can have a title and will accept multiple images. Your followers can look at the images, click on them to go to the embedded URL or even, if they like the image, can rePin them on their own boards. If you have a popular image, it can spread quickly throughout the Pinterest user base.

The big drawback of Pinterest is that it is an invitation only site. There are a couple of ways to get around this.

  • You can request an invite on the main page of Pinterest. This will place your request in a Que and in a couple of days you will get an e-mail that will allow you to create an account.
  • You can ask for an invite from a member of WA. This can be done on the Live Chat, via PM to me (Labman) or one of the other connected members. You can also leave a request in the Follow-up Forum for Jay’s Pinterest WAbinar. Here is the link for the Forum:

Note: Pinterest has changed the rules. Invitations are no longer necessary
