What Are The 4 Steps to Making $400 Per Day on Pinterest
Jumping straight into it I’m going to walk you through the strategy from start to finish.
If you follow the 4 steps below within 30 minutes, you can have your very first profit-pulling post on Pinterest.
Step 1: Pinterest affiliate marketing strategy: Find The Perfect Affiliate Product.
While there no rule as to what you promote – you can use this strategy to promote any product you like.
There are a few key factors to help you choose
- It takes as much effort to sell a $5 product VS a $500 product so to begin start with high ticket, high priced products.
- Aim for a payout ratio of 50% or more, this means you receive 50% of the sale price as an affiliate commission.
- Choose a product in a popular, trending niche you can create multiple pins about and have a better chance to go viral.
To save you a ton of time we have already sourced the perfect product that meets all 3 criteria for this strategy.
A high ticket offer in the Health-related niche
All you need to do is log in or create a Clickbank account.
Don’t worry Clickbank is 100% Free; It’s essentially a marketplace for affiliate offers.
If you have a Clickbank account great, simply log in and I will share where to go.
If not you can create an account here – Just fill in the required details and your ready to go.
If you are new to affiliate marketing, this is how it works.
For every sale you make will receive a commission.
This is real money from every product you successfully recommend.
Common payouts can be between 30-70% of sale price. The good thing about promoting as an affiliate is product owners love affiliate marketers. They are happy to pay over half the profit as they get to build their business for free.
The product we’ve selected pays out a 50% commission.
If you would like to familiarise yourself with the sales page, you can check it out here.
How To Find The Perfect Product On The Clickbank Website
To make this Pinterest affiliate marketing strategy as simple as possible we have already pre-sourced the perfect product.
To find this product you will need to navigate to;
> Then marketplace
> Then scroll to health and fitness niche and select this category.
Click the top of the page and categorize as Highest Paying or Highest Average Sale.
The reason for this is, it takes as much effort promoting a $3 product vs a $500 product and we don’t need many sales to make a significant income with the high ticket offers.
Essentially it’s the same or less work for higher commissions who wouldn’t want that?
Another strategy you could target is recurring income models but for this simply high ticket targeted to health.
After you have categorised by highest average sale.
You will need to scroll down and search for Fat Burning Soup Recipes For Weight Loss
Once you have located the product, you need to generate a link.
To generate your affiliate link click “promote” and then navigate to Generate Hoplinks.
This is your affiliate link and how you make money with this strategy.
You earn a commission from every person who purchases this product through your link.
Now you might be thinking, that’s all well and good but how do I get people to purchase from my recommended link?
This is where we introduce you to Pinterest and the second step of the strategy.
You don’t need to purchase Fat Burning Soup Recipes yourself.
Simply create a free Clickbank account and you will gain access to promote.
Once you have your account and know where to find the perfect product, it’s time to move on to step two.
Step 2: Pinterest affiliate marketing strategy: Introduction To The Amazing Word Of Pinterest And Its 300 Million Users
To make money with this strategy, we need to generate traffic and lucky enough we have the perfect traffic source for the health, weight loss and recipe niche, introducing Pinterest.
Pinterest blows up when it comes to health it’s literally the best place to get traffic in this niche.
To best explain what Pinterest is;
It’s a search engine just like Google and YouTube. Only the search results uncover pins (images).
People are continually searching for ideas and inspiration, products and services.
If they like a picture, they can save the image to a targeted board of their own so their followers can also see.
It’s sort of like a mix between google image search, mixed with Instagram and Facebook likes and tags.
At the end of the day all we need to know is, it’s trending, has targeted visitors and inspires buying decisions.
Proven with the statistics shown at the beginning of this article it’s clear the primary demographic is woman. Furthermore Pinterest trends show popular categories as healthy living, nutrition and recipes.
Hence, targeting these niches and demographic will make it easier to get targeted traffic and visits.
With a real chance to go viral!
Check out what I’m talking about
Typing “Food” Brings up a whole selection of popular pinners many with hundreds of thousands of followers.
Viewing a few profiles you can truly see the potential of Pinterest and how popular the healthy living, nutrition, fitness and recipe niches are.
Brittany receives over 10 Million monthly views!
Brittany is a Nutritionist who loves helping others live a balanced, healthy lifestyle through sharing recipes, workouts and more.
That was 10+ Million monthly views!
Another food profile generating 6 Million monthly views is Food, Folks and Fun.
This popular pinner is sharing delicious dishes to Pinterest.
Each pin allows a title, description and link. So not only can we optimize for keywords + attractive imagery we can link directly to the product that earns us commission per recommendation!
Imagine 6 Million eyeballs per month with a chance to view your pin and click your link
This is the potential of this strategy 🙂
If you have a Pinterest account great! You have complete step 2.
If you don’t have a Pinterest account – you can register and set up a free account for Pinterest here.
Once you have your Pinterest account set up you are done and we can move on to step 3, how to create stunning images.
Step 3: Pinterest affiliate marketing strategy; Creating Stunning Images To Post To Pinterest.
In order to make our images stand out from the crowd, we need to learn how to easily create stunning images.
The way we do this is with another free software tool called Canva!
Step 3 Create your free Canva Account.
Canva is a platform where you can create and design breathtaking images and graphics, perfectly optimized to fit Pinterest.
Once you create your free Canva account, you can navigate to Pinterest templates.
Next, type in niche related keywords to narrow the templates – Recipe, food, health, salads etc.
You can literally use any template as each is editable.
Canva also allows you to upload your own images to make your pins even more unique.
The strategy I use for finding royalty-free images is pretty straight forward.
Royalty-free meaning; images you can use without getting into trouble for copyright.
Simply search in google “Royalty free images” and countless options will appear. Have a look around to see which site has the images you seek.
Once you have your template looking nice…
At this stage, you want to download the image.
Important: Do not post straight to Pinterest. Canva has this option and I know you are probably really keen to make some money however we have one more vital step before we do this and that is optimize our pin for search.
Step 3 Create your free Canva account. Edit, Design and Download Image (Just download to a folder or your desktop. Do not Post!)
When you have all this we are ready to move onto the last and final step in this strategy.
Step 4: Pinterest affiliate marketing strategy: Optimize And Post Our Pin So We Can Finally Make Some Money.
The final step in the strategy is optimizing our post for targeted traffic via search and posting our pin live to Pinterest so we can make some money with this strategy.
Let me show you how it’s done.
To post your pin live you need to first navigate to this section and click crate pin.
Here you are going to upload your picture, then the most important part of the process is adding a title, description and your link. This is how people will find your pin in the search and how we make money from the link.
We need to apply SEO (search engine optimization) just like you would your google ad, article or YouTube video upload.
This step we are optimizing our title and descriptions with keywords terms people are likely to be searching.
One key pointer is the title and description must also be relevant to the image. This helps with click-through rates and builds trust with Pinterest users. We want to make sure people are getting what they searched for.
Our Title might be 37 Amazing weight loss recipes – amazing weight loss recipes would be something people may search.
Think of different ways to add keywords into your description.
Keywords: Lose weight + Delicious weight loss recipes.
Your description might sound like:
Have you been looking for a way to lose weight over summer? Try these delicious weight loss recipes busy mums have been raving about.
This targets our keywords and relates to our target demographic busy mums.
This is how it would look in Pinterest.
If your struggling to come up with keywords, head back to Pinterest or the product sales page and gather ideas from there.
Once you have uploaded the picture, crafted your title and description the final step is adding your high ticket health-related affiliate link or on Clickbank the “hop link.”
If you remember from step one it looks like this;
HINT – Some people have trouble with affiliate links on Pinterest. It’s not the link that’s the issue. You must not edit or re-direct the link. No third party re-directs like bitly or clickmagick.
Simply past your raw affiliate link, this will be allowed.
You are allowed to put affiliate links on Pinterest it says so in their policy, the behavior they don’t allow is link re-directs or link shorteners.
Play buy the rules, stick to the strategy and you’ll be fine 🙂
If you’re concerned about tracking, Clickbank has an inbuilt link counter to help you gage clicks and conversion rates. If your only promoting on Pinterest it’s easy to gage all clicks are from this source.
So with your Picture uploaded.
Title, description and link listed.
All you need to do is hit publish and add to all your related boards.
From here your pin is completely live and people can now find it on Pinterest.
Now you may not make $400 per day from one pin. However, you can copy & paste this strategy with different image designs, titles and descriptions in the hope that one goes viral.
