Unless you live under a rock then you know that Pinterest is wildly popular and chances are you are not utilizing your account. For starters you may not even realize that there is a showcase carousel for your favorite boards, I bet you don’t even have your boards set up with the proper size and brand colors.
1. PHYSICAL PRODUCT
Pinterest is the perfect place for you to market that product. Take professional quality pictures of the production process, of the finished product, and of the product being used.
2) SELL A DIGITAL PRODUCT
Digital products are HUGE these days. Many people are making a significant amount of income selling printables, digital files, online courses, and ebooks. Pinterest is a great way to market these products.
3) OFFER A SERVICE
If you have a service-based business, Pinterest is a great way for you to connect with your potential clients.
4) BECOME AN AFFILIATE
Many companies and small business owners offer their customers the opportunity to become an affiliate. You can utilize visually appealing images and your customized affiliate link to catch people’s attention, tell them about the product, and send them to where they need to go to place an order.
Pinterest only changed course recently and decided to allow affiliate links on Pinterest again! Yay!
5) GROW YOUR LIST
Use Pinterest to get people to sign up for your mailing list.
6) BOOST BOOK SALES
Are you an author who has a book that is already published and for sale (or are you working on launching a book)? If so, Pinterest can be a great way to connect with your future readers. Create pins that invite them into your world. Give them little snippets of info on the characters. Share excerpts from your books, quotes that you love, and reviews from people who have already read and loved the book. Then let them know how they can support your launch and/or order your book.
7) RESEARCH YOUR COMPETITORS
It is also a smart idea to use Pinterest to research what your competitors are doing (or not doing) and how it is working for them.
How are you making money on Pinterest or aren’t you?
