  • 0:21 | The best thing is you don’t need any 
    experience or any money to get this all  
  • 0:24 | set up. All you’re going to need is Wi -Fi 
    and a laptop or a phone, and that’s about

    to have my exact $0 to $10 ,000 strategy, 
  • 0:32 | so you can go off and make those sweet commissions 
    ASAP. Now, before we get into the video,  
  • 0:36 | you know the drill that will quickly introduce 
    myself for those of you who are new here. Hi,  
  • 0:40 | I’m Gian. I’m here to help you run up a bag online 
    so you can live the laptop lifestyle you deserve. 
  • 0:44 | Now, if that sounds good, go ahead and drop 
    me a laptop emoji down in the comments,  
  • 0:48 | and let’s get right into the video. So I feel like 
    most of you do know what affiliate marketing is,  
  • 0:52 | but for those of you who are completely new 
    to this, affiliate marketing is basically a  
  • 0:55 | business model where you promote someone 
    else’s product or services and earn a  
  • 0:59 | commission for every sale or referral you make.
    Now, why should you choose Pinterest for affiliate  
  • 1:03 | marketing specifically? Well, with over 450 
    million market users, Pinterest remains one of  
  • 1:09 | the best free traffic methods out there right now, 
    so you never have to spend a single penny on ads. 
  • 1:13 | Firstly, what you’ll need to do is choose your 
    niche. Choosing the right niche is essential for  
  • 1:18 | affiliate marketing, and trust me, over the years, 
    I’ve had a lot of hits and misses, but it’s really  
  • 1:22 | a simple formula when it comes down to Pinterest.
    What you need to be aiming for is niches that you  
  • 1:26 | know have very visually appealing products in 
    them, and what I mean by that is things like,  
  • 1:30 | let’s say fashion or interior 
    design or food or even fitness,  
  • 1:34 | basically niches that you know you can collect 
    aesthetic images to promote your product. 
  • 1:37 | To give you a real -life example, because a lot 
    of you have asked me why I don’t actually have a  
  • 1:41 | finance -based Pinterest, and that’s simply 
    because there weren’t that many people that  
  • 1:45 | will turn in to Pinterest for finance advice, 
    so it was a lot harder for my pins to go viral, 
  • 1:50 | and when they did, they barely got any 
    conversions. At this moment in time,  
  • 1:53 | my top performing Pinterest accounts are 
    in the lifestyle and the home decor niches,  
  • 1:58 | and these two accounts alone are exactly 
    what got me to $14 ,000 in one month. 
  • 2:02 | Once you’ve decided on a niche, you need 
    to find good affiliate product. I know one  
  • 2:05 | of the main questions that was asked the most 
    under my last video was what affiliate programs  
  • 2:09 | specifically to sign up for, and I honestly can’t 
    tell you because it really depends on your niche. 
  • 2:14 | This is where you’re going to have to go 
    off and do your own research to find the  
  • 2:17 | top affiliate programs in your chosen niche, 
    because there’s significantly better paying  
  • 2:21 | programs than the Amazon Partner Program, for 
    example. Now you can find products on affiliate  
  • 2:25 | marketplaces like ClickBank or Amazon.
    All what you can do that I personally  
  • 2:30 | recommend is you go on Google and 
    type in best affiliate programs in  
  • 2:33 | your chosen niche. So you actually have to go 
    off and find that yourself which like I said,  
  • 2:36 | can be done very quickly with a Google search.
    And to clarify, you get these links from these  
  • 2:41 | platforms that you’ve signed up for. So if you 
    decide that you wanna promote a product that’s on  
  • 2:45 | Amazon, you would sign up for the Amazon Affiliate 
    Program and the Amazon Affiliate Program is where  
  • 2:49 | you’re gonna be generating your link that you 
    can put on your Pinterest and also this is the  
  • 2:53 | platform that you’re gonna be getting paid for.
    This goes for any other platform that you decide  
  • 2:57 | to sign up for. Also make sure that you put in 
    your bank details or your PayPal so you don’t  
  • 3:01 | miss out on a payout. Obviously they’re 
    not gonna take your money, they’ll just  
  • 3:04 | hold it until you add your bank details.
    But yeah, once you find some products that  
  • 3:07 | you would like to promote in your niche, whatever 
    program they might be on, you’ll want to generate  
  • 3:12 | the links and put them to one side for now. So you 
    can move into optimizing your Pinterest account. 
  • 3:17 | Now having a good Pinterest account is important 
    because while people still buy products without  
  • 3:20 | ever actually seeing your page first, you do still 
    wanna build a following and in order for people  
  • 3:24 | to follow you, they need to like what they’re 
    seeing. Now before any kind of customization, 
  • 3:28 | you wanna make sure that you switch over 
    to a business account if you haven’t done  
  • 3:31 | that already and you can do this in the account 
    settings. Now from here you wanna add an image  
  • 3:35 | or a logo related to your niche as your profile 
    picture and your banner. Everything has to look  
  • 3:39 | nice and cohesive so you can quickly design this 
    on camera or people using the pre -made template. 
  • 3:43 | Try to stick to one aesthetic or one 
    color palette for your profile picture  
  • 3:47 | and your banner. And definitely if you happen 
    to use a logo or you have text in your banner,  
  • 3:51 | make sure that you’re not using more than three 
    fonts because then it will look very messy. 
  • 3:54 | A pro tip as well is to revamp the name. 
    Pinterest themselves will assign you with  
  • 3:58 | a username that will look something like this. 
    So you want to go back in and come up with a  
  • 4:02 | name that doesn’t have like numbers or weird 
    letters in it and through your actual name, 
  • 4:06 | you’ll want to add some keywords. So for 
    example, the brand new Pinterest output  
  • 4:09 | glow of gear and then digital market art 
    or affiliate marketing or keywords that  
  • 4:14 | are actually searchable. What this does is 
    make your username search engine optimized. 
  • 4:18 | You have the opportunity to rank in the search 
    which means you’ll get way more eyes to your  
  • 4:21 | content. This is also the case for your bio 
    bio so you need to make something short,  
  • 4:25 | sweet, simple and definitely with a few 
    keywords. The goal of your bio is to  
  • 4:29 | kind of give people an idea of what they’re 
    signing up for if they happen to follow you. 
  • 4:33 | This you can add a few bullet points into chat 
    gpt and ask it to write you a short bio. You  
  • 4:37 | don’t have to spend too much time on this and 
    then you can move into setting up some boards.  
  • 4:41 | Now over the past few years I’ve really learned 
    the importance of having good boards because back  
  • 4:45 | then I wasn’t too informed so I was just 
    throwing random pins into random boards  
  • 4:49 | that weren’t very like specialized in anything.
    But what I do now that a hundred percent works  
  • 4:53 | is I go to Pinterest trends. Now on here you 
    can do research on trends in your niche. So  
  • 4:58 | a hack I use is to name boards after the 
    top searches in my niche because my board  
  • 5:02 | is likely to come up when people search 
    for these keywords and that obviously  
  • 5:05 | means I’ll get way more eyes to my Pinterest 
    and of course I’m more likely to get sales. 
  • 5:10 | My best advice is that you have a minimum of 
    five to ten Pinterest boards with at least  
  • 5:14 | 20 pins in them that relate directly to the 
    board name. So what I used to do back then  
  • 5:18 | for example was let’s just say streetwear.
    So this would be one board by itself. Now  
  • 5:22 | I create boards that are like cargo 
    pants specifically or leather jackets  
  • 5:27 | specifically or kitten heels specifically. It 
    has to be like a very specific type of board. 
  • 5:32 | And also another thing that you need to make 
    sure of is to definitely add an eye catching  
  • 5:36 | picture as the cover for your board. But you can 
    go ahead and select whatever catches your eye  
  • 5:40 | because obviously you would know best. And from 
    here you can move into some growth strategies. 
  • 5:44 | Obviously we can all agree that the best way 
    to grow on Pinterest is to post a lot of pins  
  • 5:48 | consistently. And by a lot of pins I mean 
    around two to five per day. But the question  
  • 5:52 | is what types of pins should you be posting?
    I actually went through all of the pin styles  
  • 5:56 | that I post on my Pinterest so you can go 
    ahead and check them out in this video right  
  • 5:59 | here. What I typically post is either unique 
    pins or repurposed pins. Now by unique pins I  
  • 6:04 | mean pins that I’ve actually created.
    So to create these pins I use the  
  • 6:08 | templates on Kittal or Canva or what I do is 
    repurpose content that I find from TikTok,  
  • 6:13 | Instagram or Tumblr. My absolute favorite 
    place is Instagram because typically you’ll  
  • 6:16 | find fresher content so you’re more likely to go 
    viral because it’s new to the Pinterest platform. 
  • 6:21 | If you do happen to go this way, always make sure 
    that you credit the creators though. And also a  
  • 6:25 | top tip is that if you choose to repurpose content 
    from TikTok on your Pinterest, make sure that you  
  • 6:30 | remove the watermark. This should go without 
    saying because you know that if you walked into  
  • 6:34 | Burger King with a happy meal on your hand,
    you probably wouldn’t get kicked out but  
  • 6:38 | people would definitely be sired out of you. 
    That’s the exact same thing with Pinterest.  
  • 6:41 | If you’re on their platform promoting 
    a whole other social media platform,  
  • 6:45 | your account won’t get banned or deleted 
    but they’ll definitely be sired out in you. 
  • 6:48 | And what will typically happen is that they’ll 
    limit your reach. So just make sure that you use  
  • 6:52 | something like TikTok Save to remove watermarks 
    before you upload your pins. Now when it comes to  
  • 6:56 | actually uploading this content, I recommend that 
    you use a nice mix of standard pins and idea pins. 
  • 7:01 | One thing I’ve noticed from all of my accounts 
    and all of the accounts that I’ve actually run  
  • 7:05 | for other people in the past is that idea 
    pins are the best type of pins that you can  
  • 7:08 | post on Pinterest if you’re trying to expand your 
    reach. So definitely put a little focus on those. 
  • 7:13 | Idea pins are definitely what got me the 
    most amount of followers and views to my  
  • 7:16 | account. Keep in mind that with standard pins 
    however, you have the option of tagging products  
  • 7:21 | and adding your custom links to them. So these 
    pins are basically gonna be your money makers. 
  • 7:25 | To give your standard pins the best 
    chance of going viral, I recommend,  
  • 7:28 | and as long as this sounds, this is 
    definitely gonna increase your reach,  
  • 7:31 | that you describe everything that you’re seeing 
    in the content. So as an example for how I’ll tag  
  • 7:36 | this pin of me on holiday is I would describe 
    exactly everything I’m seeing in the picture, 
  • 7:40 | like I said. So there’s a knit dress, the knit 
    dress is orange, there’s braids, it’s an aesthetic  
  • 7:45 | nature shot and so on, you get the gist. Now 
    the reason why I do this for, I would say all, 
  • 7:50 | but that’s not true, sometimes I do get lazy. 
    But the reason why I do this for most of my  
  • 7:53 | pins is because you have to understand that 
    Pinterest is literally just a really good  
  • 7:57 | search engine. But if people type in knit dress,
    I’m likely to show up. If they type in orange knit  
  • 8:02 | dress, I’m likely to show up. If they type 
    in nature aesthetic, I’m likely to show up.  
  • 8:06 | And the great thing is, I’m not just likely to 
    show up on Pinterest itself, but also Google. 
  • 8:10 | Because Pinterest images actually do show up 
    on Google search when you click on images,  
  • 8:14 | so you’re literally maximizing your 
    exposure. Because I know that the main  
  • 8:17 | thing that I would have been promoting 
    in this pin would be orange knit dress. 
  • 8:21 | I would add my custom affiliate link 
    for the orange knit dress dress. And  
  • 8:24 | I’ll put in the description that there’s a 
    link for the orange knit dress in the pin.  
  • 8:28 | So people come across my pin on Pinterest 
    or Google from them searching knit dress, 
  • 8:32 | and they see that my link is there, 
    and then they go off and buy it,  
  • 8:35 | I make a commission off that purchase. Now this 
    actually leads me perfectly into the next part,  
  • 8:39 | which is where you’re gonna learn exactly 
    how to add your affiliate links to your  
  • 8:43 | Pinterest so you can make some sweet commissions.
    So there’s three ways that I go around putting my  
  • 8:46 | affiliate links on my Pinterest. So one way is 
    I always have a link in my profile. Now this  
  • 8:51 | link is either a landing page or a Beacon’s 
    link or a link tree or something like that. 
  • 8:55 | This is where I direct people to the top products 
    that I’m trying to connect them to. The good thing  
  • 8:58 | about having a landing page in your profile is 
    that you can collect your potential customers’  
  • 9:03 | emails so you can reconnect with them in the 
    future. And I 100 % recommend it because I’ve  
  • 9:07 | made a lot of backend sales for my email list.
    So to help you out here, I have actually created  
  • 9:11 | a landing page template that you can go 
    ahead and claim down in my description.  
  • 9:14 | It’s 100 % free and you also get a free trial 
    to block me. But yeah, the second way that I  
  • 9:19 | sprinkle my affiliate links into my Pinterest,
    and it’s the exact method that currently  
  • 9:22 | generates me the highest conversions. 
    And that is whenever I upload a pin,  
  • 9:25 | instead of adding the affiliate link right here, 
    which is what everyone does, I will tag it using  
  • 9:29 | this tool right here. So the affiliate 
    product will literally show up on the pin. 
  • 9:33 | This is gonna minimize the steps between the 
    potential customers and the product. Because  
  • 9:37 | understand that the more steps someone 
    has to take, the less likely they are to  
  • 9:40 | make that purchase because then they’ll 
    have the time to reconsider and think, 
  • 9:44 | “What do I really need this?” And that’s why 
    so many of us are impulsive spenders because  
  • 9:48 | even TikTok shop and stuff like that, they 
    have the links there that you can quickly  
  • 9:52 | check out with. And that’s exactly how 
    these companies get you to spend money. 
  • 9:55 | But yeah, for this, you literally just grab your 
    affiliate link, add the tag right here, and then  
  • 9:59 | paste it. This is what it’s gonna look like when 
    it’s done. One thing I wanted to quickly address  
  • 10:03 | from the last video is that you can paste your 
    affiliate links directly into this tagging part. 
  • 10:07 | Your account will not get flagged up for spam 
    if you do this. What I usually do, however,  
  • 10:11 | is I put my links through Genius Link just so that 
    I can track exactly where the traffic is coming  
  • 10:15 | from. And the final way that I put my affiliate 
    links on my Pinterest is the generic way, 
  • 10:19 | which is literally just adding the 
    links directly to the pin. Now,  
  • 10:22 | this is very effective, but you will need to 
    shorten your link. But if you’re doing this,  
  • 10:25 | you will need a Beacons link or a landing page 
    or even put your link through Genius Link. 
  • 10:29 | Because if you copy and paste your affiliate 
    link directly from your affiliate program,  
  • 10:32 | your pins will probably flag up in the system 
    and you could get your account banned. So it’s  
  • 10:36 | definitely not worth putting your account 
    at risk. The bonus way I wanted to mention, 
  • 10:40 | because I noticed that a lot of people on 
    Pinterest somehow don’t see the tag products  
  • 10:44 | or the link from the pin. So what I recommend 
    that you do is you stay on top of the comments.  
  • 10:48 | A lot of the time, you’ll see people asking where 
    to get a specific product featured in the pin. 
  • 10:52 | So you can reply to those comments with your links 
    so you don’t miss out on any commissions. So now  
  • 10:56 | we’ve covered the three Pinterest tagging 
    methods that you need to know about. So now  
  • 10:59 | we can move into the last quick tips that I 
    wanted to quickly share with you that will  
  • 11:02 | definitely help you scale your Pinterest.
    And the first one is to utilize Canva Pro  
  • 11:06 | to help you batch create and post content. Now 
    this graphic design platform right here allows  
  • 11:10 | you to connect it to your Pinterest account. 
    And it has a content planner that allows you  
  • 11:14 | to schedule and automate your Pinterest pins.
    This saves you a ton of time because instead  
  • 11:18 | of you having to be on Pinterest 
    every single day posting manually,  
  • 11:21 | which is what I was doing at the start, you 
    can just dedicate a day or two to scheduling  
  • 11:24 | the content for the month. So you’re not tied 
    down to manually posting on your Pinterest. 
  • 11:27 | So you can literally just schedule and then 
    lay back for the rest of the month and then  
  • 11:31 | go again the next week. Another tip is to 
    use freelancers to outsource some of the  
  • 11:35 | work. Now at some point, your Pinterest is 
    gonna generate enough money for you to be  
  • 11:38 | able to pay someone else to manage it for you.
    So this is gonna give you more time and energy  
  • 11:43 | to focus on how you can open up more streams of 
    income for yourself. I have a Pinterest manager  
  • 11:47 | at the moment that manages my biggest account on 
    Pinterest. And she literally creates the boards, 
  • 11:52 | she creates the pins, she pins them there 
    for me, she engages with my audience. And  
  • 11:56 | this is an amazing investment because I’ve been 
    able to focus on other ways that I can monetize  
  • 12:01 | my other Pinterest accounts. The final tip I 
    wanna give you before I let you just run off, 
  • 12:05 | this is by far the most important advice that 
    I could possibly give you when it comes to  
  • 12:08 | running your Pinterest. And that is to understand 
    that consistency and patience is the key here.  
  • 12:13 | I’ve had a ton of emails and DMs of people 
    asking me why they haven’t made any money. 
  • 12:17 | They’ve been pinning for a whole week. But what 
    I need you to understand is that making money  
  • 12:21 | with Pinterest can take some time. You need 
    to warm up to the algorithm, algorithm, you  
  • 12:25 | need to build that steady traffic, you need 
    to be engaging with your audience and you’ll  
  • 12:28 | need to make a few mistakes before you 
    can actually start making some money. 
  • 12:32 | And realistically that doesn’t normally happen 
    in a week. If it was that easy everyone in their  
  • 12:36 | parents would be posting on Pinterest 
    instead of having a nine to five. Just  
  • 12:39 | know that this is a proven strategy 
    so you have nothing to worry about. 
  • 12:42 | Just stick with it for a few months and you’re 
    bound to see results. And speaking of I just  
  • 12:46 | wanted to publicly congratulate one of my 
    subscribers Amara that commented under my  
  • 12:50 | last video and let me know that she made 
    her first ever commission with this sale. 
  • 12:53 | I hope this gives you guys some motivation 
    because this is really one of the most simple  
  • 12:57 | business models out there right now. And just 
    in case you actually plan on taking Pinterest  
  • 13:00 | seriously I know for a fact you’re gonna 
    love this video right here where I teach  
  • 13:03 | you seven ways to monetize your Pinterest

  • 13:26 | to have any experience to get this all up 
    and running. This method can make you a  
  • 13:30 | lot of money very very quickly and you 
    don’t need any money to start this up.
