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.

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)!
