Applying for an Amazon Affiliate account does not guarantee acceptance, but I have never known of anyone to be denied. If at any time following your acceptance as an affiliate you become a resident of Arkansas, Colorado, Illinois, North Carolina, Rhode Island, or Connecticut, you will become ineligible to participate. For additional questions, please contact Amazon.com.
Step Two How to Pin Your Amazon Affiliate Links
Pick an item to add to one of your Pinterest boards.
Click Link to this page from the affiliate toolbar. NOTE: If you have been accepted into the Affiliate program and do not see the toolbar, make sure you are signed in to your account.
Highlight the line of text between the first set of quotation marks and press CTRL-C to copy. Click Text Only on the pop up box.
Open your Pinterest account and click to Add.
Select Add a Pin from the pop up box.
Click inside the box and then press CTRL-V to paste your Amazon Affiliate code into the box. Click Find Images.
Click Next to reach the desired image. Select the board to which you want the item placed.
Complete the pin description using a personal experience or quotes from the item description on Amazon. Pin it!
Verify that the pin is showing correctly. Click to Edit if needed.
Every time your pin is re-pinned, your affiliate link goes with it and has the potential of making money.
If you do not notice clicks in your Amazon Affiliate account after a little time, check the links on your money pins by clicking to Edit Pin.
Verify that Pinterest has not changed your affiliate link to THEIR affiliate link, which they reserve the right to do. If they change it, change it back.
Step Three Some Tips to Keep in Mind
Pin regularly. Try to set aside a little time (10 to 15 minutes) each day to pin and repin. Pin at peak times. If possible, pin in the evening and weekends.
Do not over-pin Amazon affiliate links. Keep a ratio of approximately ONE affiliate link for every TEN regular pins. Pin a variety of topics that you enjoy. Diversity brings a bigger crowd.
Pin popular topics. The most popular boards on Pinterest are related to food and health. Pin original content. Repinning is great but PINning gets you noticed.
Connect to your Social Networks. Using your Facebook and Twitter feeds will help build your number of followers. Complete your board information. Remember to categorize your boards.
Interact with your followers. If someone leaves a comment, reply to them. Start a conversation. Use keywords to name your boards. What words would someone search for? Dont be cute.
Do other affiliate programs work with this strategy? Some do and some dont. Of the programs I have tried, E-Junkie products will work when you use your product-specific affiliate link. Zulily works and they even have a way to pin easily! Bitly and most other url shorteners are marked as spam and will not work.
Why does this work? 1.When people click through your affiliate link, a cookie is placed in their computer which holds your affiliate number. 2.You will earn a commission on what they purchase within the lifetime of the cookie. 3.The life of the cookie is determined by your affiliate agreement.
Remember, is supposed to be fun. Making money off something that you really love is a BONUS! Want to see how I work it?
