Which Affiliate Platform Should You Start With?

A few weeks ago, I wrote some posts about affiliate marketing. In those posts you will find that I strongly recommend if you are first starting out with affiliate marketing, that you should start with Shop Style because they are PPC (pay-per-click) model. I thought it was a great platform for newbies. You get paid per quick while you figure out your niche, what people click on, and what people buy.

Well, I no longer recommend them to newbies who are just starting out. The Reason: Shop Style has made some recent changes on how they operate which can be seen as both, good and bad news.

Good news: Shop Style now operations on a CPA model, which means you will get paid per sale, not per click. This gives those who use Shop Style a chance to make even more money, since they’ll make commission for ever sale instead of getting paid a flat rate per click. ShopStyle is in the middle of transitioning over to this model so some people are still on the PPC model while others have switched over to the CPA model. Eventually everyone will be on the CPA model.

Bad news: ShopStyle is being very selective of who they will allow into this model/program. They want people who continuously post original content, which means they take their own photos and upload their own photos. They don’t want people who just repin other content and repin stock photos from websites to promote products. They also want you to be a blogger who is an active blogger. So you will need a website. They are reviewing profiles one by one and closing accounts who don’t fit their expectations. For any account they close, they are NOT paying out any money earned. This has caused a lot of people to be upset.

Due to all these changes, I no longer recommend newbies to start with ShopStyle, especially if they don’t have a blog. If you do have an established blog and actively post original content to your Pinterest Account, Blog, and Instagram, then a highly suggested that you apply to join their network. They are partnered with hundred of retailers so there is a great opportunity to make money.

 

So, you must be wondering which affiliate platform I recommend for anyone just starting out. Well, I stumbled across this platform a few weeks ago so I am still figuring it out but so far EVERYTHING has been great. The customer service is wonderful, their platform is easy to navigate, and they are partnered with hundred of brands. They mostly pay commission for every sale, but there are a few who retailers who pay per click. I personally like the pay per sale model because you have the potential to make more money.  The company I recommend is MagicLinks.

It is really easy to sign up with MagicLinks – so click here to sign up now. If you are signing up with just a Pinterest account (no blog), make sure you have 100 followers. Don’t have 100 followers? I can help with that as well.  I started a brand new Pinterest account May 2017 so I had ZERO followers. As of May 2018, I now have over 6,400 followers. So I am ready to help you on ways to increase your followers.

I will be writing a blog post soon but in the meantime, Check out my new Facebook group for tips on how to increase your followers and for other tips and strategies: Pinning for a Profit .

How To Make Money on Pinterest

How to make money on Pinterest. Learn how to use affiliate links on Pinterest to earn passive income! #makemoney #blogging #affiliatemarketing #passiveincome #incomeideas #income #moneytips #Pinterest #pinteresttips #bloggingtips #makemoneyonline #KAinspired

     

Do you have a Pinterest Account? If yes, you can make MONEY from Pinning on Pinterest (no blog required)! How awesome is that?!

I am going to be 100% honest and raw, making money online from Pinterest requires work, but it’s fun and you are your own boss. I’ve learned so much through this process. I know I didn’t do everything the right way or the easiest way, but I have learned from my mistakes and I’m ready to teach you everything I have learned. It is 100% possible that anyone can do this as long as they have a Business Pinterest Account and know what Affiliate Marketing is.

What is a Business Pinterest account?

A personal account and a business account are very similar but one main difference is a business account gives you access to Analytics. This means you can see stats and reports on your pins (how many times it appeared on Pinterest, how many times it has been saved, how many times people clicked on it, and so much more)!

It is easy to convert your existing Pinterest account to a business account. Click here. You will be brought to a Pinterest Help page that will walk you through the steps to convert your account. Don’t have a Pinterest account?You can create a new account.

What is Affiliate Marketing?

Affiliate marketing allows you to earn money through promoting and/or selling a product or service. If you put the work in, you can earn a passive income which means you can earn money while you sleep!

Here is a list of some real life examples of Affiliate Marketing that you can relate to that will help you to understand what Affiliate marketing is:

AirBnB: “Earn free Airbnb coupons! Get up to $95 for every friend you invite.
Ebates – “Refer a friend. You’ll get $25. They’ll get $10”

There are so many different Affiliate Programs that you can join but I am going to outline the Affiliate Programs I recommend that you start using today!

My absolute favorite way to use Affiliate Marketing is directly with Pinterest. Many people don’t know that you can get paid to Pin on Pinterest. Did you know?

Yes! You read that correctly! You can get paid to Pin on Pinterest. When I first learned about this, I became obsessed. I was always on Pinterest looking for new ideas and some inspiration whether it was home projects, gift ideas, fashion, recipes, gift ideas, and so much more. So once I learned that you can actually make money from Pinning on Pinterest, I was determined to make it a reality. And I did. My only regret is not learning about it sooner.

The Best Tools To Help Grow Your Pinterest Business

Tailwind Visual Marketing Suite

 

I’ve been doing Affiliate Marketing with Pinterest for almost a year now. When I first started, I didn’t have a blog. I did everything with only Pinterest. It is a great side hustle that I truly believe anyone can do.

Once I grasped what I was doing, I spent about 2 hours a day pinning, creating pins, and learning as much as I could about affiliate marketing. There were days I probably spent 4 hours doing this, while others day I spent 30 minutes doing it. I tried to stay consistent because everything I read said consistency is key. Also, I didn’t do it all in one sitting every day, I spread it out throughout the day.

Now you are probably thinking to yourself, I don’t have 2 hours a day to spend on Pinterest. But don’t worry, you can spend as little or as much time as you want. Do what works for you and what you can commit to do every day. Just make sure you can do it every day. Once you do grasp Affiliate Marketing and understand how it works, there are tools out there to make it MUCH easier. Now, I spend about 2 hours A WEEK (yes, 2 hours a week) doing affiliate marketing on Pinterest, but my consistency has not changed. I went from approx. 2 hours a day (approx 14 hours a week) to 2 hours a WEEK! These tools have helped to free up my time but allowed me to earn Passive Income. 

Quick side story that explains how important it is to have a routine, stay consistent, and stick to it. I started Affiliate Marketing in May 2017. Throughout the summer, all my work was done manually. I was making money and everything was great. I noticed the more effort and time I put in, the better results I saw. September 2017 I went on vacation for 8 days to the Caribbean. I thought I would be able to keep up my Pinterest business while on vacation, but I was wrong. I went from spending 2 hours a day to about 10-20 minutes a day. I thought since I was still doing something, everything would be fine. Boy was I wrong. My numbers dropped drastically. Pinterest business accounts lets you see analytics and my numbers tanked that week and the following weeks to come. My engagement and viewers dropped significantly. I didn’t realize this until I got home from vacation and looked at my numbers. It took me about a month to get my numbers back to where they were before vacation. After I got my numbers where I wanted, I was ready to learn more about these tools to help my business grow so this would never happen again. Once I saw how great these tools where, my biggest regret was not implementing them sooner (especially before vacation). I have been able to save SO MUCH TIME now that I use these tools. 

 

Now I am sure you are asking yourself, what tools are they?
