In this post, “Monetizing Pinterest with ThirstyAffiliates” this is going to be one of my shortest blogs to date. But it’s worth the note of mentioning, to serve as a memory tickler, and to shoot for the moon.
There’s a program that will pay you to advertise for Pinterest called MagicLinks.
The minimum number of followers on Pinterest needs to be greater than 100. I’ve been working on my boards for close to a month and in that time I’ve ranged from 19 to 20.
Goal: For planning purposes, I’m crossing my fingers that I’ll have more than a 100 followers around the December 2020 time frame.
I’ve applied to the program but I don’t know much about it to provide you with details. I’ll keep you all posted on what I find out. Who knows maybe this can pan out to be something lucrative, wouldn’t that be nice?
Updated: 8/20/2020. Well on track to possibly getting close to 160 – 200 followers by December. Number of followers is 128.
Updated: 9/12/2020: Number of followers by using Tailwind has climbed to 260 followers and growing at an average of 10 new followers per day.
Updated: 11/5/2021: Number of followers by using Tailwind and manually pinning in Pinterest has climbed to 1,200+ followers and growing at an average of 3 new followers per day.
Updated: 5/11/2022: Number of Pinterest followers is more than 1,400. One of the best ways to grow your Pinterest account is not to be concerned with the number of Pinterest followers, and just create great content for the purpose of bringing traffic to your blog. Getting too overly concerned with the number of Pinterest followers can be detrimental to your Pinterest account, trust me on this one and don’t make the same mistake I did. Pinterest has got a lot of quirks in their algorithm and it doesn’t like things that are out of the ordinary on Pinterest. Getting consumed with too many followers is a recipe for disaster in Pinterest that you want to avoid at all costs.
Monetizing Pinterest with ThirstyAffiliates
Updated: 8/8/2021: When I wrote this post I didn’t have a clear understanding on how to monetize your blog. One of the ways to do that is to use Affiliate Links and to cloak (disguise) your Affiliate links with plug-ins so that they are easier to remember and more likely to get clicked. The program that I recommend after rereading this blog post is a program that I like to use called ThirstyAffiliates. The number of clicks used with this program has substantially risen. If you’re a new blogger I highly encourage you to use ThirstyAffiliates so that you can increase the number of clicks and preferably sales for your blog.
