Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Pinterest is a ever growing social media platform that opens many sales avenues for affiliate marketers. Although the recent changes have seen that many affiliates can no longer directly link to retailers. There is still a large benefit to engage in the traffic. If you have affiliate products and services targeting women than Pinterest is your best bet. Recent stats suggest female users of the site account for 80% of all users. Not that you should prey, however if your niche is scrapbooking, women's clothing or weight loss solutions for women then this is the place to be.

It's all about quality and visual stimulation. Here are seven Pinterest tips to make sure you are successful.

How To Get Traffic With Pinterest

Create images that are easy on the eye. Standard images do not get shared as often. You can use a service like Canva to add words, different fonts and a mixed range of colors. Canva have templates you can simply add your own images to as well. Infographics are particularly popular.

When you create a board use your keywords in the title and also add the phrase to your description. You can also add your website to the description of your board. Find quality pins to add to your board and make sure you comment on each pin with at least 100-200 words. Find a variety of keywords that you can add to each pin when you write in the comment section.

You can join viralhoot to get followers, likes and repins. Another way to get followers is to start liking other pins and repin them to your board. Typically the owner of the board will exchange the favour because your profile will show up in the message section of their profile. Notifying him or probably her that you engaged in some form.

Add a hover pin it button to your own site. You can also leave a comment in the footer section of your blog telling visitors they are welcome to pin your images. I have added text on my images telling visitors to pin it! Well actually I said "pin me" in case there was a licensing issue!

When you repin a pin tweet it as well from within Pinterest and Facebook the pin. The owner will respond and do something for you as either a follow, a favourite or a like. This is a great way to grow your followings on other networks not just Pinterest.

Use a service that you can schedule your pins. Research and case studies have shown the more often you pin the better your traffic volume. That makes sense when you think about it. Maintaining regular pins is pretty rough on your data usage as well!

Comment on the most popular pins. This is just so people see you are an active user. Comment on a range of pins don't limit yourself to your niche alone. Obviously you will need a profile picture to make any use of this strategy.

It is hard work dividing your time between all tasks and jobs. Learning, researching and finding time to implement the knowledge is tough on your mental well being at times. Web based classes have been fantastic for me. I have learned so much about social media and various traffic sources. Well I hope you have found these Pinterest tips helpful.
