Get Paid to Pin On Pinterest

You don’t need a website to get paid to pin on Pinterest!

Do I have your attention now?

Yep, that’s right.

You do not need to have a website to get paid to pin on Pinterest.

You need a few things, but not a website. Having a website does make it a bit easier and you can make a lot more money, but you can pin to Pinterest and get paid without a site too.

The easiest way to get started?  Create a Pinterest account!

Pinterest isn’t just for finding recipes or knitting patterns. You can promote all sorts of things, link to handmade products, and more.

This makes Pinterest the best place to get paid without having your own product!

How to Get Paid to Pin On Pinterest Every Day

There are several ways to get paid to pin on Pinterest actually. Some are doing things for themselves and some are doing things for other people.

We’ll go over both in this post so you can decide which route is best for you.

Step One: Set up a Pinterest Account

First things first, you’re going to need a Pinterest account, but what kind?

I would suggest you go ahead and sign up for a Business Pinterest account.

This will give you access to analytics so you can see what pins are doing well and what pins aren’t.

Once you know what’s working you can replicate it and do more of that thing.

Step Two: Find & Apply to Affiliate Programs

One of the best places to start looking for affiliate programs is Shareasale.

You can sign up on their website and become an affiliate and then search their database for programs to join.

Once you’re approved by programs you’ll be able to see them, get links, and promote those companies and products on Pinterest!

It’s fun, exciting, and a great way to make money.

Step Three: Create Pinterest Images

Before you can pin images to Pinterest you have to actually make the images.

You can either do this via Canva, PicMonkey, or even Photoshop.

Personally, I use and love Canva, so that’s the route I recommend. It’s easy, free and you can save your pin images to copy and reuse for later!

If you’re not sure what kind of images to make you can always use Pinterest templates like these from Creative Market.

Just remember to create the images FOR whatever affiliate you’re pinning images for. Don’t make them in the same branding or whatever, but something like this…

Create images that look like they’re for a blog post, but when you upload them to Pinterest y0u’ll link them to the affiliate link.

This is the fastest way to build affiliate offers on Pinterest to get paid to pin.

You can also create a blog and write reviews of products, or link to products in your post (hint: I’ve done that in this post).

How to Get Paid to Pin by Other People
