Are you looking to make some extra cash AND do you love Pinterest? Did you know you use Affiliate Marketing on Pinterest to make money? How awesome is that?! It is a great way to make extra cash.
Implementing affiliate marketing with Pinterest is easy and can be done in 6 steps.
1 – Join an affiliate program — check out this blog post to see the the top 5 I recommend

3 – Upload the image to Pinterest – I highly recommend making a custom pin.
4 – Insert your description: make sure you use keywords, hash tags, and add your disclosure.
5 – Insert your affiliate link – This will be a unique URL that tracks when someone clicks on your link and buys something.
6 – Save the pin to a related Board
Voila – you have successfully added an affiliate Pin to Pinterest. If the pin relates to other boards, you can add them to those boards as well. To do this, I recommend using TailwindApp. If you don’t have Tailwind, sign up here for a free trial.
