Most bloggers who start blogs get it wrong from the get-go. I was one of them, and did everything wrong for several years before I realized that what most “gurus” said that you had to do to be successful was a bunch of marketing bunk, and really didn’t align with how I wanted to run a business. 

I worked for a long time trying to do “the blogging thing” but never really made a profit until I started working hard to build a tribe first, then work on profits. I focused on helping people and then on making a profit, not the other way around. A lot of people who teach affiliate marketing make it sound so simple. Their not-so-helpful tutorials sound something like this: “Just share links, write some blog posts that include affiliate links, and you’ll make money!”

Yeah, right. 🙄

If everyone who shared any kind of affiliate in an unhelpful blog post designed to make the author money was rich because of affiliate marketing, then major retailers wouldn’t need tv or internet ads anymore because affiliate marketing would be more efficient than literally any other method of marketing.

It’s unrealistic and insane to expect that simply “sharing links” is going to make you money, and that people who have no relationship with you, and no trust in you, are just going to buy shit because you wrote some stuff about it on the internet. If you’re looking for a “do this for 5 minutes a day and you’ll be rich!” type of guide, this is not the place for you. 

I want to show you how I make money with affiliate marketing, using Pinterest as my source of traffic.  Most of my content is hosted on my blog because social media isn’t a dependable platform to build your business on. 

What kinds of content I share

When I started making my blog posts and social media posts, the most popular kinds of content were:

  • Tutorials & Training
  • Checklists
  • Hacks and helpful tips

For example, these are some of the free courses I offer to people. They either include affiliate links, or lead to an email series or paid product that includes relevant affiliate links. 

One of my favorite things about ecourses, is they give me an opportunity to really help people and build trust, LONG before I ask for a “buy” by sharing an affiliate link. 

I personally really love the format of ecourses, so that’a why you’ll see I have a lot of them, but I’m certainly not here to say that free courses are the “one way” you should be promoting affiliate links. I don’t believe in one-size fits all business plans. No two people are the same, so neither can our businesses be!

In fact, I hate putting all my eggs in one basket and use a lot of diverse ways to share my affiliate links. Inside of my business courses vault for my Abundance: Unlocked members I have a course called, Create Your Affiliate Marketing Business because affiliate marketing is such a nice stream of income for content creators who want to diversify and automate your income. 

My super-not complicated marketing plan for my affiliate marketing business

Any business that depends on you working all the time isn’t going to be a sustainable business, so it’s important to focus on systems that make you money on autopilot from Day 1.

I personally use Pinterest to market my free resources. I work to appeal to a female audience, so that works for me. 🙂 Most of the women who come to me fall into something like this:

  • want to make money from home
  • (many times, but not all) have tried other things like MLM, blogging, and other side hustles, and failed to make money at them
  • women who need financial stability in order to achieve their goals (staying home with kids, get out of debt, or retire with dignity, that sort of thing!)

I share my resources in relevant group Pinterest boards and Tailwind Tribes where these kind of lovely ladies are hanging out, which brings them in, allows me to help them through a free resource, then sometimes leads to affiliate commissions for me at some point.

The only other big piece to my marketing plan is our Facebook community, which is just a nice place to hang out and create relationships with these ladies. Sometimes I do post offers, but mostly I try to be there to answer questions, talk about real-life stuff like kids, being a wife and being a woman entrepreneur. Notice, almost all of my content I mentioned had NOTHING to do with selling, marketing, or promoting. 

That’s the biggest thing I would recommend to you: focus first on relating to your audience and helping them out, then consider how you can make money while you do it if you want to become an affiliate marketer. Too many people focus on the “sharing links” part, and not enough on the relationship building that 

If you want to become an affiliate marketer, I have lots of resources for you inside of my business courses membership vault that all of my  money relationship clients have access to.  

Have questions about affiliate marketing?

I don't have a blog or website, do I have to have one?

Creating a website or blog will make your journey into affiliate marketing a lot easier, for a few reasons.

  1. Most major affiliate companies prefer to work with people who make content, not just sharing stuff. Affiliates who send traffic that’s ready to buy are going to buy are much better for their bottom line than those who just share links willy-nilly on social media. Having an active website makes it easier for you to get into large affiliate program companies, and opens a lot of doors.
  2. Having a website gives your followers a central place to look for your content. If someone likes what you share, then it’s great to have a single place you can send them for more of what you create!
  3. You being in control of your income keeps it safe. If you’re only sharing on social media, they could ban them tomorrow and your income would be gone. Obviously not an ideal situation!
  4. Having a website also makes it much easier to collect email addresses, so you can always stay in touch with your fans whenever you want to. This means more relationship building, which will eventually lead to more sales!

That being said, no, you don’t have to have a website, if you’re dead set against it.

In my paid program, one of the first lessons students see is one where I show them 5 easy places to share affiliate links that aren’t a website. I do highly recommend having one, but you can also start affiliate marketing without a site, and wait till you have more money before investing in a website of your own.

Who is a good fit for affiliate marketing?

Affiliate marketing is beautifully unique, because basically any market where there are products available for consumers, there are affiliate programs to go with it!

Affiliate marketers who do well are:

  • willing to create their own content that makes products appeal to their audience
  • will put intentional thought into the strategy they use to share affiliate links (not just sharing links in order to make a quick buck)
  • understand and accept that they’re marketing to people, not cash machines who are all dying to buy anything you share
  • put time and effort into creating a system for making money – any “get rich quick” business plan is crap
What kind of time does it take to run an affiliate marketing business?

Affiliate marketing is one of my favorite kinds of businesses, because it doesn’t take tons and tons of time to maintain.

I personally like to use systems that allow me to work in batches. For example two of my favorite ways to work in batches with affiliate marketing are to setup an email series to market an affiliate product, or to create some social media posts to share on my Facebook group or page and add them to my social media scheduler.

You can out as much, or as little, time into affiliate marketing as you want to. It can be something you do after you get home from a regular job, or you can spend 80 hours a week working on it if you like.

If you have less time, I would focus on systems like email marketing (we talk about that in the 4th module of my paid course) that can work for you and takes less time to keep going.

If you have more time and love being social, using social media can be very effective, but it naturally takes more time to interact regularly.

 

The bottom line here is: it’s all in what you want to do, and what you have time for! There’s no hard and fast rule for how much time you need to put into your business.

How can I get started with affiliate marketing for myself?

There are two ways you can get started with affiliate marketing.

1. DIY

You can always start joining affiliate programs on your own. A lot of affiliates do that and make money, although it can be a bit of a learning curve.

That’s the way I did it, learning on my own! 

2. Take a course

If you’re looking for some no-nonsense directions on how to become an affiliate marketer, I would love to introduce you to my course, Create An Affiliate Marketing Business. In this course, I’m going to show you the tactics I use and recommend to:

  • find your audience
  • attract your audience to your content
  • share affiliate links strategically
  • how to share your links and get sales, not just clicks!

          I never recommend my students use Amazon links on Pinterest. Amazon does not include Pinterest promotion in their terms and as such can get your Amazon Associates account shut down.

            I actually contacted Amazon directly about this because I had seen other bloggers commenting that you couldn’t use Amazon affiliate links on Pinterest. According to Amazon, you can use your affiliate links on Pinterest with no fear of repercussions.

          • ChristinaRRoot

            Emily- that’s good news! I’ve had others contact Amazon and hear differently, so I avoid using Amazon.

            Amazon also has a 24 hour cookie and they don’t pay per click, so I still don’t recommend them. But thanks for the info!

        Hi christina, couldnt figure out how to place my own comment or email you. I wanna know where you get the things you pin. Do you go if you go into different sites (ex. Forever21, etsy etc) and pin from there, or how?

        Reply
        • ChristinaRRoot

          Hi Yazmin,
          You would first sign up with an affiliate such as Awin or ShopStyle Collective. Then, while browsing the web, you find products you like, products that are popular, or products that would fit into your niche, and then you pin them or create your own pin. I link to products that others sell and make money for each click, or sale depending on the program.

      II am from the Philippines and am a big fan of pinterest. I spend long hours browsing on pinterest and I fortunately came across this blog. I want to try earning through pintetest affiliate links just like you but when I tried to apply in magiclinks, I couldn’t coz they asked me for a YouTube channel which I honestly don’t have. Although I spend a lot of time on YouTube watching X factor videos and Britain’s got talent, I have never uploaded any original videos til’ now. Can you help me out? I would really appreciate your help. Thank you!

        You can link to other channels, like Pinterest, but there are also LOTS of other programs you can get into, if you aren’t accepted into Magic Links. You can see our list of TONS of affiliate and referral programs here, in our Pinterest Marketing Database here.

          Marlissa,
          I can see why that would be confusing.

          My Pinterest affiliate marketing is completely separate from my blogging. If I decided to shut down my blog today, it would not affect my Pinterest affiliate earnings in any way. My Pinterest affiliate links get shared directly onto Pinterest, and while I do use relevant affiliate links in my blog posts, I don’t include that income as my Pinterest Business’s income.

          I wanted my blog to primarily be a place where I could educate others.

          I hope that helps!

          Affiliate products are ordinary products from companies that pay you to promote and sell them.

          I teach students in the ecourse how to find companies that pay you every time someone clicks on your “affiliate link” (your link to their product) and to get a percentage every time someone purchases a product.

          I hope that helps!

            Can that affiliate link, be MLM products like Origami Owl Or Interior designs etc. Or something more lucrative such as Rogan & Fields or Melaluka. I do not get out much & would prefer, working at home. “I’m an intervert!” And a slow learner. But as soon as I get my hands dirty & comfortable, in knowing what i am doing. I know I can soar beyond the clouds. Just need some coaching, on what to do & what not to do.

            Rhonda,
            Hi there. It would need to be products/websites that are set up through the affiliate programs like Shopstyle Collective and Awin. If you want to work from home and are an introvert, this is probably the best gig for you!

      I am currently writing an ecourse on this very thing, which answers everything you’ll need to know, just sign up in the bow at the bottom of the email.
      But, to answer your question, an affiliate program pays you for sending them traffic, and pays you for sales, and sometimes just for sending traffic to their website. I promote specific products and then when people click on them, I get paid for it. Does that answer your question?

        Christina, this is such an awesome thing you’re doing. I LOVE pinterest but could never seem to understand it even as a user. Right now I use it to just look up articles and mom blogs. I have a blog right now that is a mess and has only had 90 views. While I’m super passionate about it’s content, I would like to attract lots more traffic and def use it as a means to earn an income. However you have peaked my interest in using a no blog approach to earn money on pinterest. You obviously do both(have blogs and earn money through pinterest without a blog). My question is which should I start focusing on first? I only ask because I am a mom of 5 homeschoolers and I will need to focus on 1 thing instead of a variety of things and my budget is super slim. Know what i mean? I’m wondering what my best investment with the least amount of money down will be? I’ve subscribed and got access! Thanks for listening. I appreciate your time

          Erin,
          Firstly, you may find some benefit from my free course, Pinterest 101. It’s a good tutorial for the “non-techies” which many of my students are. 🙂 Also, I think that both businesses have great income potential, but it depends on your priorities. Do you LOVE writing and are you passionate about that your blog topic? Are you willing to learn all the ins and outs of the technology and graphic design behind blogging to make it successful? For many people, they aren’t. That doesn’t make them bad, it just means that it isn’t a good business for them, but can be a fun hobby! I don’t know you and wouldn’t presume to tell you where you gifts and skills are, of course! But in my experience, non-techies who struggle with time are better off with Pinterest affiliate marketing.

          Instead of 1,000 things you COULD be doing with a blog every day, Pinterest affiliate marketing is basically a few daily tasks: find popular content to Pin, share that popular content, make affiliate Pins, and share affiliate Pins. That’s it. One you’ve learned how to do those, it’s just rinse and repeat! Blogging is constantly evolving, which is great if you LOVE change, but if you just want something a little more steady and consistent as far as skill level goes, Pinterest affiliate marketing all the way.

          I hope that helps give you a clear picture! 🙂

    I’m very interested, I Think. I’m very “non-techie”, but I understand that’s who you’ll be catering to, is that correct? I live in a rural area so my internet is pretty slow sometimes really slow. Also what kind of hardware will be needed? Is a laptop enough and how much memory? These probably aren’t the kinds of questions you were anticipating and I do have a ton of others, but I’m sure they’ll be answered later if I sign up. Which brings me to my last couple of questions. I haven’t signed up for the VIP program yet because I thought I should get answered first. Finally (!) I’m disabled, so I assume if I can’t work, it hurts only me right? No set hours or amount I have to do? Sorry one more question, by signing up I won’t be obligating myself to spending any money yet am I? I need to see more info before I do anything, I didn’t even know anyone except advertisers and people selling things could make moneys

      Betty –
      I do help non-techies, but some basic technology skills are required. 🙂 As one of my current coaching students says, if you can do online banking and work Pinterest, you should be alright to do the course.

      I only spent about 5 hours a week on Pinterest and I make around $300-$500 on an average month. There are months where I’m just too busy, have sick kids or I’m busy and don’t even do the 5 hours a week and I still make money, which is what makes this the ideal “side hustle”to help people with limited time.

      By signing up for the VIP list, there is no obligation whatsoever! It just signs you up for my emails, which is where I’ll share everything that will be covered in the ecourse, the price and answer any other questions (although I’m happy to respond to comments here too!) and you’re totally welcome to unsubscribe at any time if it’s not for you!

      Thanks for your questions, I hope I answered them for you!

    Reply
    • ChristinaRRoot

      I spent $120 for an annual subscription to my Pinterest scheduler, which is my only ongoing expense. They do have a monthly plan that’s $15 a month, which I recommend highly to my students.

    This looks interesting but what is the income potential from it?

    • ChristinaRRoot

      One student of mine made $200 in her first week. I personally bring in $300-$500 a month working no more than 5 hours a month.

        You said earlier in this post…”my new average income is around $6,000 a month with all of the programs I promote” Yet you said above “I personally bring in $300-$500 a month working no more than 5 hours a month”

        Why the difference and which is it? 🙂

        • Christina Root

          Notice the time difference between when I was making $300-$500 a month and when this post was updated. 🙂 It’s over a year! If you’re doing it right, affiliate income should scale and create more money, the longer you work at it.

    I know that most affilate companies require you to have your own website or blog. But I don’t have either of those. Do you share in your course affiliate companies that let you work with them without a website or blog? I’m not going to start any, so the main information I need is the right companies that would allow me make money just only from Pinterest.

    Reply
    • ChristinaRRoot

      There are affiliate companies that want to work with Pinterest-only marketers because they understand how profitable it is for them.

      The model I teach in the course is that you do not need a website or blog to succeed on Pinterest. Most students don’t have the time, energy, desire and/or technical skills to start a blog… and it’s important to me that I can empower my students to make money in the way they want to do it instead of following a model (like blogging) that they can’t or don’t want to use. 🙂

      Hope that helps!

    Hi Christina,
    I’m looking for something that could potentially replace my full-time income within the next one and a half to two years. Would you recommend this as a part-time supplemental income or possibly a full time income potential?

    Reply
    • ChristinaRRoot

      Yes, definitely! I tell my students to expect a year before a full-time income if you put in 5-10 hours a month like I do. I could put in more hours and make significantly more, but as a stay at home mom with two and other businesses to run I just don’t have the extra time to commit. 🙂

      You can definitely increase your income faster with more time to commit, or it you have a larger following, but my following is small, under 3k at this time.

      I hope that helps!

    Hi Cristine, I came across your pin while looking for ways to promote my online retail work clothing business. I repinned it and am very interested in your course. I am 71 years old and have been married for 50 years. When my wife had to go into a care home it wiped out our retirement savings and I have been struggling financially. My interest is two fold – to affiliate market for others in order to earn some money and also to figure out if there is an inexpensive way to promote my own online business. I can not afford the steep startup fees that most affiliate networks charge but am perfectly willing to pay a 10% commission on affiliate generated sales. Any advice that you could give me would be greatly appreciated. You can see the store at http://www.workwearheadquarters.com Thank you!

    I’m all signed up with your video and will link up with everything else you’re doing (that I can afford) – I think you have the answers I’m looking for. But I have an immediate curiosity. . . How does it benefit me as an affiliate marketer to save pins that I didn’t originate?

    I am seeing a re-pin of mine go off the charts with 44,000 views and almost 500 saves and bunches of clicks that go nowhere that makes me any money in just 2 weeks. That has never happened to me before (and ironically it started a couple of days before I read your article) While I have gobs of pins out there with beautiful content, ads etc. that are getting 10 clicks a month?? Anyway, the question was how does it benefit me as an affiliate marketer to save pins that I didn’t originate?

    Reply
    • ChristinaRRoot

      Karen,
      That’s a great question! Pinterest’s new smart feed algorithms will not show your Pins if you only have Pins that aren’t very popular with your audience. Every new affiliate Pin will naturally start off as very low-Repins, since it’s new content. So if you want your Pins in general to show up in the smart feed, you’ll need to repin consistently, and repin popular content in addition to your affiliate content in order to have any of your content show up in people’s feed. 😀

      Does that help?

    So much great information! I’m anxious to get started. I’m trying to turn my private Pinterest over to a business one and I went to the business site and it tells me to click on the red “convert” button… not sure if I’m blind or what, but I cannot find it! I’ve read every inch of it and just can’t see it. lol! What am I missing?

    Hi, I am 8 years old woman, I am disabled. Is it possible for me to make money from Pinterest?

    I have a question about actually getting followers. You say to just pin and pin use these scheduled pins and things. I feel like I pin all the time and don’t have any new followers. How do you actually get more followers? Its something I read all the time and no one says how to really do it.

    Reply
    • ChristinaRRoot

      How many followers did you start with and how many do you have now? Sometimes you may not have a lot of new followers for a while (this happened to me) but typically what will happen is that you will have a sudden influx of followers. This is very normal.

    Hi Christina,

    I am a student enrolled in your 5 Days to Profitable Affiliate Pinning e-course and am currently working on managing my boards as I transition to the business side of Pinterest. I am neither a blogger nor entrepreneur so many of my boards cover broad categories instead of having a specific focus. I have begun the process of creating new boards for different topics, however, some of them only contain a handful of pins.

    Your blog and course have answered most of my questions, yet I am curious: Is the number of pins a board contains relevant at the beginning of this process to attract followers? and if so, is building one board at a time more beneficial than trying to bring up the pin count across all boards?

    I am so glad to have come across your blog (via Pinterest of course!) 🙂
    Thank you in advance for your thoughts and time.

    Hi Christina,

    First I wanted to say thanks for all that you are doing, you are truly a great help to so many people like myself. I am a stay at home mom wanting to earn an online income, and I have wanted to try affiliate marketing for some time now but felt like I couldn’t do it, I knew nothing really about it but wanted to learn. I finally came across one of your free courses and it has motivated me a lot and now I can’t wait to start.
    The thing is, When I started on Pinterest, I created many boards concerning several topics. The thing is, when I switch to a business account and identify my niche, what do I do with all the boards I created and the group boards I joined outside of my niche? Sorry if the question sounds silly but I am new to all of this and will need help in understanding how it all works. Also, could you tell me which companies work with affiliates from outside the U.S?
    Here’s a link to my Pinterest profile: https://www.pinterest.com/pinkrose98rv/

      Since you are outside of the US, it is best to see if you can get approved with Shopstyle Collective and Awin first. You can still keep the boards outside of your niche or you can clean it up a bit.

      Heather, While you don’t “have to” – it can really increase your conversions and by extension your income. The course 5 Days to Profitable Affiliate Pinning doesn’t cover that because it’s a “getting started” course which is meant to help you get started and isn’t an all-inclusive course.

      Hi Barbara,
      You should name your business something appropriate for your focus genre, but don’t sweat it and overanalyze it too much. Use keywords that people might search for – for example if you Pin about saving money your business name might look like this “Your Name | Frugal Living and Getting out of Debt” or something like that.

      I recommend two affiliate programs for newbies, Shopstyle Collective and Awin. You can sign up on their websites and use them on your own.

      Note: I used to recommend Awin because they had a pay-per-click program, now they do not pay-per-click, only per sale. I still recommend them to new Pinterest affiliate marketers because their conversion rates are so much better than other programs. They can be hit or miss about allowing Pinterest affiliate marketers in without a website, but it’s worth the try!

          Vanessa,
          Yes, convert it to a business account. Without a business account, you can’t see the Pinterest analytics, which allow you to see which boards are most popular. That gives you a starting point to know which boards have the most easy profit potential, saving you months of trial and error trying to find out what your audience loves.

      Belinda, you’ll need to save the photo as a JPG or PNG. 🙂

    So is this something you can do without a blog? Or do you need a blog to do affiliate pinning?

      Rachel,
      Nope, no website needed to do Pinterest affiliate marketing!
      When you sign up for most affiliate marketing programs, they’ll ask for your website. Instead of using a website, use your Pinterest profile link. Shopstyle Collective is particularly easy to get into!

    Great article, thanks!
    Something I had never considered as I was under the impression that affiliate links were against Pinterest T.o.S. (or am I making that up in my head!) Anyway, I guess it’s can’t be as you’re making money from it.

    Had a good chuckle reading some of the comments. Seems like some people need to understand how “Pinterest works”, before trying their hands at this idea.

    Thanks

    I want to ask. If I want to create a nice Pin on Pinterest, then I have to click on the affiliate link to the product to take a few photos. Will Shopstylecollective not close my account, because I can’t myself click on the links that’s being advertised.

    • Christina Root

      No, SSC won’t close your account for a few clicks. Just don’t do it a lot, that’s called click farming and can get your account closed down.

    I’m a little confused because I am a part of Awin, and after reading this decided I’m going to use Pins from there as well as ShopStyle. You mention that pins from Awin are Rich pins (Which I have activated)and that they show the price info but when I pin from Awin it doesn’t show as if it is a rich pin. My question is what method of pining do you use to pin from Awin to get it to show as a rich pin?

    Reply
    • Christina Root

      Hi Lucy,
      A pin that has additional information attached. As a Pinterest affiliate marketer, there isn’t much you can do on your own with it. It must be done through the website, like Awin. The website administrators set that up, not an affiliate. Here is a link that may help, but it is kind of confusing. https://developers.pinterest.com/docs/rich-pins/overview/?

    Just checked out Shopstyle Collective and Awin which you say you don’t need a website for but they do require a website to join. I’m confused, has something changed?

    Do you still need a Pinterest business account to sign up for shopstyle collective or will a personal account now do? Can you change the website of your shopstyle collective account if you get a blog later?

    I feel like I have taken every free Pinterest course available and applied what I have learned but still, I only manage to get 20 views per day, if I am lucky. I cannot figure out what I am doing wrong, I am doing everything I am told to do to increase pins, visitors etc.

      Michelle,

      I’m sorry to hear you are not having any luck. Have you taken any of my courses? The free courses give you a brief rundown of what it takes but they never go into the full details on how to actually make some real money.

      Also, are you using a scheduler such as TailWind along with your Pinterest account? I do also have my Pinterest Profile Assessment service on sale right now. We will go over your Pinterest account and give you tips, tricks, SEO keywords to help you build your account. We’ll recommend relevant changes to better optimize your Pinterest marketing efforts. We will give you ideas on where to source content relevant to your account, and we will also do an audit of your board relevance. I think this would be beneficial to you so you know what you are doing wrong. You can check out the link for that service here: Pinterest Profile Assessment

    Hi Christina,

    I am a stay at mum living in Dubai. I do have a part time job but it doesn’t really pay all the bills. Most of the things that I have seen and read only works in the USA or other countries and it seems impossible to have the same things work in Dubai.

    I have just recently started my affiliation with Amazon.

    I do hope you can help me

    Thanks.

      We don’t recommend sharing affiliate links from Amazon to Pinterest, because their terms of service are grey in this area. There are lots of affiliate programs who work with people in India that aren’t Amazon though!

    Hello!! This is fascinating! Just curious how long it took you to get to the $5-6000 per month income? And how much time a day on the computer is required to get to that level? Thank you!

    • Christina Root

      Jenny,
      It took me around a year of consistent work, but the time per day depends on the amount of time you want to spend. I also have a full-time gig running and operating Organize Your Biz, so my hours were sporadic, but as a typical rule, I did my affiliate marketing in 2-3 days a month.

    Hey! That was a great post! You really got me drooling at ‘$6000/month’ lol. At the same time I’ve seen your ‘income expectations’ video, so I had a question and would be glad if you answer it.

    I know there are a lot of variables invovled, but on an average estimation, how long do you think it’ll take me to get to just $500/month if I follow your courses to the T and in progression…starting from 5 days then rocking your first month then pinning your way to success…also utilizing profile assessment service at some point? PLUS How many hours of work would that take each day?

    Thanks! 🙂

    I’m confused. In the post you say the average at the end of the year would be $6000 so maybe it’s $5000/month or around that, but in the comments you say that you make $300-$500 a month.

      Ralph, as my business has scaled, so has the money I’ve made. That’s the way it’s designed to work! The more you work at it, the more money you should be making if you’re working at it effectively. 🙂

    this is an excellent blog post. and I am on it for the last 3 hours.
    I went to the tailwind and checked all the training videos and keep reading all this blog, but one thing is still there about Pinterest that I never found been discussed anywhere….

    it’s about using ” # ” –> hashtags in Pinterest. no one spoke about it that weather at this juncture of time, hashtags are required in Pinterest ? do they work? — are they necessary and gives better results promoting the pins?

    hope this post will draw some one’s attention towards it and will reply…..

      Hashtags can be very useful when used properly for Pinterest, but they aren’t strictly necessary. 🙂

    This was an awesome post! I really need a little help, please. I’ve been pulling my hair for the past few days figuring out my niche. After 9 elaborate steps and myriads of mind mapping and deep pondering and research (even talking with psychics, lol), I’m still confused. But I REALLY want to succeed with Pinterest Affiliate Marketing. I’d be super grateful if you could take some time out of your precious hours. 😄

    The big idea is that I would love to pin and re-pin stuff in the ‘Health & Wellness’ area that is connected to ultra living on physical, mental and spiritual – all three levels (rituals, exercises, remedies, mind-body hacks etc.).

    I want it to be
    About eating clean and detoxing but not ‘weight loss’ and ‘calorie mapping/ diet plan’.
    About health benefits of eating/drinking something but not eating/drinking something as ‘cure’ or ‘treatment’ of some disease and ailment.
    About mind-hacking, meditation and brain boosting and not about dealing with depression or mental diseases.
    About ancient and new systems of physical fitness and not exercise routines/sets and reps/xyz minute workout/working with machines.
    About being fit inside out and full of vibrancy and life but not bodybuilding/strength training.
    About a great night’s sleep rituals but not treating insomnia.

    What is a niche that fits perfectly in this picture? Ultra health on all three levels – seems like a really diverse/broad niche to allow a fan-base and profitability in. Or is it? 😶 What are the sub niches here that you suggest can be good to work with?

    Thanks a lot! 😃

    Morning!
    So, do you make most of your earnings from teaching? I was going to watch the free video UNTIL I saw I had to share my credit card information. I rarely do that anymore, too hard to get that information back. Can’t imagine giving that up to an individual on Pinterest. Plus, where does that info get stored and what do you do with my contact info?
    But this sure seems to be working for you!

      Cathy,
      I make about half of my income from my courses. If you don’t want to put in your card info, then you can join without that here. I don’t store the card info, I can’t even access it, it’s inside of the processor system I use. 🙂

    Hi Christina,
    I’m actually really excited (but trying not to be, as I may be disappointed) seeing your site on how you can mentor and guide on this online biz. I’ve just signed up for the free course on Affiliate Marketing 101.

    I currently have a full time job. I’m into design. I use Pinterest quite a bit. Love Pinterest as it’s like shopping without having to pay! Haha… Seriously, I love what I see and what I can find in Pinterest.

    I’m interested in jewellery making and doing some art, outside of my day job. Have tried doing some selling but haven’t been successful. I’ve tried FB and Instagram but I will put it to not being able to put in the time and effort for it. I have contemplated doing a blog, as I know we can generate income from blogs too. However, blogging can be a scary journey too.

    So, I’m at the junction where I feel I want a change in what I do, and age isn’t really in my favour, as I may not be able to secure something now. And I still need to have that source of income. So, I’m seriously looking at what I can do online, whilst not letting go of my passions. Ideally is to start learning and generating income, while I still have my job. Of course, the sky is the limit, if I can do this online venture successfully.

    I hope you get a fair idea of where I’m at and I’d really appreciate your help in guiding me what to do. Of course I’m also hoping this learning journey will not cost me a fortune. Btw, I’m writing from Malaysia.

    Thanks in advance.
