Are you looking for another stream of income? Do you want to earn X.XXX$ every month as passive mode? Then congratulations, you’ve come to a right place. First of all, I should mention that I’m a professional Pinterester. Yes, I’m a guy who lives, breathes and sleeps with Pinterest. I’m a professional who did 100.000$ with Pinterest traffic in 2017. If you still doubt my knowledge of Pinterest then you should read this article. I’ll share some inside tips for the readers of HoomanResources.Com.
First, you need to understand that Pinterest is a social network and has no option to earn money directly. You can’t just log into your Pinterest account and see the earnings or payments. Pinterest is a source of traffic. Pinterest users will come to your blog, to your landing page or e-shop and they will generate you earnings. Pinterest is not as huge as Reddit in terms of monthly traffic (users) but Pinterest is very niche based. Pinterest users are spending more time on the portal every year than any other social network users.
Last year, there was an official report stating that up to 60% of Pinterest users are females. They are well-educated and have high-paying jobs. As a marketer and full-time Pinterester, I say that Pinterest, regarding female niches, is a goldmine.
Using Pinterest as a Traffic Source
As we have explained above, Pinterest is an excellent source of traffic. Above reports state that most Pinterest users are women above 30 and that’s very attractive information for marketers. All you need to do is find a good product for women above 30 and monetize with Pinterest traffic. Before we head to choosing the right product, let’s first understand how we get the Pinterest traffic to our website.
2 ways to get massive Pinterest traffic to your site – Paid and Free.
Paid Strategy – That’s where Pinterest Ads come into the play. Each pin (image, external article or internal article) gets searches. For example, if you search for “online marketing” on Pinterest Ads, you see that the keyword has up to 5 million searches per month. You can set up your ads to be displayed while people are looking for certain keywords. If you don’t have access to boards with huge followings then this is the solution to get Pinterest traffic. Keep in mind that you should be ready for spending XXX$ to get a good understanding of Pinterest user behavior.
Free Strategy -If you don’t have enough money to invest in advertisement, you should go for the free strategy. Free strategy means group boards with a lot of followers. You can search for boards through Pinterest and ask board owners for approval. Each group board owner has included an email address in the group board so you should email them and ask for authorization as a contributor. Tell them that you’ll contribute fantastic content. When you get approval, you can start Pinning (adding your content to the board) and magic will happen – you’ll see a huge amount of traffic coming in from the pins.
