5 Things You Need To Profit On Pinterest

In this post I will share with you 5 Things You Need To Make Money On Pinterest.

Pinterest is fast becoming the best place online to get views on your website or blog.

When it comes to long-term social media traffic Pinterest is, without doubt, the number 1 place you should be focusing.

A Facebook post lasts for 3 – 24 hours, a Pinterest pin lasts forever and can get a pin shared months and even years after it was first posted.

For this reason alone you should be focusing some of your efforts on Pinterest.


5 Things You Need To Profit On Pinterest.

1 – Pinterest Business Account

If you are new to Pinterest you can set up an account here Pinterest Business.  If you already have an account you can switch it over to a business account.

Optimize your profile – including company name, about section and also your board names.

In the about section on your profile page, you have 160 characters to use.

Therefore you want to make sure that you’re using this space wisely by using keywords in each sentence to increase your Pinterest SEO.

Apply for Rich Pins – If you're serious about Pinterest you simply need these, they stand out compared to other articles without Rich Pins, they also show more information on the pin and get more exposure.

2 – Website, Blog, Online Store like eBay / Amazon / Etsy

You need a place to drive people towards from Pinterest, so that can be your own blog/website or shop on eBay.

Once you have them on your blog it's about showcasing what you have on offer, whether that’s your own products, services you offer or products you recommend.

Don’t have a blog or website? We have you covered on that one.

4 – Email Autoresponder OR A Landing Page

To increase profits and get a larger audience you need to have an autoresponder.

An autoresponder is something on your website that collects peoples emails for you.

Once you get their email you can start building a relationship with them by weekly news letters, offering them a special deal etc.

A landing page is where people arrive first when they are coming to your website/blog and you can collect details on that page also.

      Hello Remya
      Affiliate links work well when they are relevant to your audience and also your subject post.
      Me too about Canva 🙂 Still can’t believe its free!

    Claire – Heart Handmade UK Posted on7:54 pm - September 16, 2017

    I decided to invest in Deadline funnels about a month ago and I love them 🙂

    Canva is my favourite image creation tool, I can’t believe I get access to all of that software for free! AND they save everything in their cloud thing so I don’t have to save a million images on my computer! They’re the best.
