How to make money on Pinterest – Android Authority

Pinterest is a quiet giant of social media. It drives more traffic to retail websites than Facebook. And if you’ve got the time to build a following, or if you already have one, you can make money on Pinterest, making it one of the most popular side hustles around. There are several ways to go about it, but they break down into two major categories: helping your own business or helping someone else’s business. (And sometimes that someone else is Pinterest.)

Links are an essential part of making money on Pinterest. You can include special links to products in your pins, and collect a commission when someone clicks on the link and makes a purchase. You can also include links to your own e-commerce site or blog. If you sell products, you can even include links that let people buy your product without leaving Pinterest. You can also make money off Pinterest by managing Pinterest accounts for businesses that do not have an in-house social media staff. We’ll go into more detail below.


To make money on Pinterest, you can put links in your pins that will help either your business (with links to your website or shoppable pins) or someone else’s (through affiliate linking). You can also make money off the content itself by agreeing with a company to produce pins about their product.



An affiliate link is a link given to you by a company to include in your social media posts. When someone clicks on the link and proceeds to make a purchase, you receive a commission. Pinterest does not pay you for affiliate links; you are paid by the company that sent you the link. You insert an affiliate link into your Pinterest content by creating an Idea Pin (a specific kind of pin with more media options) and including an image of the product. Then add a sticker to it by tapping the Stickers button on the lower right.

Tap on Use a link and enter your affiliate link in the window provided. Pinterest will add the link to the sticker. Save your pin, and now viewers of the pin can click through to the affiliated site. Keep in mind that not all affiliate programs allow posting of the affiliate link to Pinterest, so make sure to check with your affiliate program before you begin.</…….
