How to Make Money | on Pinterest in 2020 | 5 way for make money online

If you spend a lot of time on Pinterest As a user. it probably crossed your mind a few times that for all the hours you spent on the platform. it would be great to learn a way of making money on Pinterest.

hi I'm Nishat of I'm a Pinterest marketing expert and on this website, my new blog is published on Thursdays. 

if you want to learn more about the Pinterest platform and online business in general.


how to Make Money on Pinterest
I want to tell you how you can not make money on Pinterest.

The influencer model where you get paid for having a high number of followers or impressions on your profile doesn't work on this platform.

so if you've been thinking that you can do like many Instagrammers - just post some pretty images, grow your following numbers, get impressions on your images, and you're good to go for sponsored money that's not gonna work on Pinterest.

I often get questions from people who tell me, oh I have a Pinterest account with 5,000 pins, and I've got about a million monthly viewers on Pinterest.

When will I start making money from it and how to do it? there is simply no marketplace or any sponsorship platform where you can put your Pinterest account and start receiving requests from companies who want to advertise on your account.

it's just not a thing on Pinterest and you have to deal with it. when I get questions like this I'm really amazed at how people are easily wasting their time for things that they don't understand and they don't know anything about it.

so if that was you asking yourself how to make money on Pinterest if you have no website and you don't plan to link your pins to some affiliate offers.

I'm sorry to be the bearer of the bad news but you will make no money with your Pinterest Account and you will waste your time trying to grow it.

so this was how you shouldn't expect to make money on Pinterest.

and. Now let's speak about the ways that can actually bring you some extra income or maybe even become a full-time job.

The first way you can make money on Pinterest will work for you if you have experience in graphic design.

it's making ping graphics for other people who need them to promote their websites.

If you're a graphic designer it will not take you much time at all to create pin images because pins usually have a pretty simple and standard design.

Oftentimes, your clients will ask you to create for them just the branded pin templates, maybe a package of 10 or 20 templates. so they can reuse them to create their own pins.

It's something like my package of 20 camera templates. For example, I sell it as a digital product on my site and this could also be an option for you. and by the way, if you are the one who is struggling with pin design, and you want to buy my pin canva templates.

so selling pin templates either as a digital product or with branding for each individual client, is also an option but of course you will earn more if your clients want you to create every single pin image for them from scratch.

even if you are not a graphic designer, but you feel like it's something you could be good at.

there are actually free or some very affordable online tools you can use for creating pins for example you could use canva free online image editor.

I've seen a Pinterest management company charging up to $20 per original pin image and up to $50 for a video pin, yes 20 and $50 per pin it's not a monthly package.

and I'm not exaggerating, it's a big company in the Pinterest marketing space. so if you do quick research, you will find their site and all the prices are there.

so they can probably convince their clients to pay that much for an image or for a video pin. But if you as a freelancer can offer a more attractive price for great quality of graphics, do the math and see how much you can get paid for just creating pin images and videos.

Pinterest account management
Now the second way is Pinterest account management if you have some experience managing your own account on Pinterest.

if you achieved quite impressive results doing so, you could start offering Pinterest management to others. Pinterest requires consistency and notall the business owners and not all the bloggers have the time and patience to regularly create and save pins. 

How do I know there is a demand for Pinterest Marketing services?

Well, first of all, many people personally receive a lot of requests from business owners who watched the videos on YouTube, who acknowledge the potential of the Pinterest platform but they just don't have the time to manage their accounts.

I get so many requests that I could probably open a Pinterest Management agency if I wanted to.

I just don't see this as a business model for myself, because I'm not really into this idea of supervising a big team of people who would manage Pinterest accounts for clients.

so for the most part, I politely reject any requests from potential clients for monthly Pinterest management.

but I can tell you also that if you go to a few Facebook groups for bloggers, especially if the group is not just for the very beginners but rather for established bloggers, and just do some search inside the group for Pinterest Management or Pinterest VA keywords.

you will be surprised to see how regularly new threads are created where established bloggers are looking for someone to manage their Pinterest.

even in my private Facebook group for students only of my Pinterest course we have this request from time to time some members of the program have a business or an established website and they prefer paying someone else to manage their Pinterest.

others who are just starting a blog even if they start getting good traffic from Pinterest, they cannot get paid as beginner bloggers in the very few months for sure.

just as an example when my students reach 25,000 monthly sessions in traffic and apply for media ban. it takes a few more months before they see the first paycheck.

From the day you apply to media vine until the day when you start running their ads on your site, normally the whole process takes about a month.

then like other ads networks media vine will pay you for the first month with about 70 days of delay, that's another two months of waiting time.

So while you're building your blog and your traffic from Pinterest as a beginner, managing Pinterest accounts for others can be a great additional income source.

I'm expecting to get a lot of questions in the comments below this video about this way of making money on Pinterest.

because it seems like the easiest way to get started on Pinterest As you can get paid right from the first month when you start working with your first client.

but when I'm telling you there is a lot of demand for these services, it doesn't mean that anyone and everyone will easily find clients while having zero experience and knowledge about Pinterest. don't get me wrong, if you yourself are a complete beginner on Pinterest.

If you have no idea what you're doing if you don't have a portfolio or you cannot show that you achieve some good results for at least your own account on Pinterest then you shouldn't expect that people will trust you and pay you for your services.

The other question I also expect a lot of people will ask me is how much you could charge for these services. I can tell you that prices vary depending on what you include in the package, and depending on how established you are as a Pinterest expert.

whether or not you can show your potential clients some reviews and results of your previous clients.

I've seen people charge from around $300 per month and all the way up to $2000 per month for managing one Pinterest account.

Affiliate marketing makes money in Pinterest 
the next way you can make money on Pinterest. I'd like to cover in this blog with affiliate marketing.

you can use it in two different ways on Pinterest.
The first one is for people who don't have a website and don't want to bother creating one and don't want to write content about the products that they promote.

This way works for any beginners because all you have to do is create a Pinterest board and save some beautiful images optimized for the Pinterest platform linked directly to the affiliate products.

Personally, I do not use mattered a lot because I noticed that there are lots of issues with using direct affiliate links.

Even though they are allowed on Pinterest the biggest issue is that Pinterest doesn't give priority distribution to pins that are linked to other sites to the sides that are not verified on your Pinterest account.
I know you probably have seen many blog posts on this website  that read you can make a ton of money-making direct links from pins to affiliate products.

but I also noticed that a lot of the affiliate networks and websites are already blocked on Pinterest so you might be trying to send traffic directly to those affiliate networks but Pinterest will not even let you add the links to them.

I hear this happening to a lot of people with links to Clickbank for example and I also think that the list of the affiliate networks that are blocked and Pinterest is just growing overtime so it makes linking directly to affiliate products more and more difficult.

so another way I would recommend you to use affiliate marketing with Pinterest traffic is by driving this traffic to your own verified website.

where you can do some reviews of all the products you promote and explain to your audience what are the benefits of this product before you send them to the affiliate website.

If you want to learn more about affiliate marketing on Pinterest I've written another separate blog a post covering this topic.

driving traffic from Pinterest
This post is driving traffic from Pinterest to your own website; this one is perhaps my personal favorite way.

because it can help you really get to a point when your income becomes more or less passive, and you're not trading your time for money.

it takes more time, of course, you won't be paid from the very first month if you drive traffic to a new website.

you will need to learn all about the ways of monetizing your free Pinterest traffic as well. I actually have a blog post on my website that will show you how I Monetize my blog in different ways, including the most basic strategy of making money on your site with display ads.

Sometimes I get a weird question from people who are new to blogging. Is traffic from Pinterest considered to be of a high quality to be monetized with ads on my site?

Some people have an impression that Pinterest traffic could be categorized as low quality social media traffic.

well you guys are totally wrong, first of all, Pinterest is not quite a social media platform, it's a mix between social media and a search engine.

Also, Pinterest is probably one of the best traffic sources if you want to get into premium ad networks like media vine. because you will be getting visitors from the United States and for traffic from North America advertisers always pay the best.

you can start seeing results-driving Pinterest traffic a lot faster than you will see organic traffic from Google to a new website.

But you definitely need to learn how to get this traffic from Pinterest. and The key here is understanding SEO for Pinterest. I teach this in my Pinterest SEO traffic secrets course. so, if you want to learn it I will give you a link to this post. 

driving traffic from Pinterest 
and the other way I use Pinterest to grow my online income is by driving traffic to my own digital products.

I don't sell any physical products and I Don't have an e-commerce site but I know a lot of shops Drive Pinterest traffic including some of the students of my course actually.

you can either drive organic traffic to shop, or using Pinterest ads also called promoted pins and you can get clicks and leads quite cheap compared to other advertising platforms.

I have a couple of blogs posts about Pinterest ads including my recent post about promoted post pins.

I show them how it's easy to create them, and how you can get actual traffic to your site.

Selling product with Pinterest traffic  
like I said I do not run an eCommerce store but I drive leads from Pinterest to my own digital products.

for example, I have a goal set up in my Google Analytics for the signup for my free workshop, and in general signups to my email list.

Pinterest drives me a lot of leads, Facebook or Instagram don't get even close to that conversion numbers from Pinterest.

you could ask me but if these people just signed up for your list what does it have to do with product sales.

well it has everything to do with sales.

emails nurture and educate my audience and when people are ready, they buy from my emails. but first I had to get them into my list and Pinterest Traffic helps me to get new leads every month.
