My policy with affiliate marketing is to only recommend products that I have used or have had someone close to me who I trust use and recommend. This is again something that will add weight to your recommendation and increase conversion – but it’ll also help your reputation and stop you from promoting products that are rubbish. Recommend a product that doesn’t work and your own reputation and any trust you’ve built up with those who follow your advice will suffer. Don’t sacrifice your own brand for the sake of a few quick dollars.


It is important to note, however, that StudioPress is now a subsidiary of WPEngine which is the company that actually does the web hosting on which StudioPress’s Genesis framework runs. The affiliate program only works with choosing the StudioPress framework and themes, not the actual hosting on WPEngine. WPEngine has a separate affiliate program for its hosting services, which yes, is a bit confusing.
Shopify is probably the most popular e-commerce solutions provider out there, but because there are so many products and options, newcomers can easily get confused. If you believe your audience has products to sell and could benefit from Shopify’s products and are able to elucidate the benefits of signing up for Shopify, you can definitely earn some big money with their affiliate program.
Affiliate marketing isn’t the only strategy to have evolved recently. Influencer marketing has undergone a makeover of its own, becoming more transparent, more streamlined and more effective. If you have felt in the past that influencers do not offer the same transparency or sales-driven results as affiliate publishers, you might be pleasantly surprised by recent updates and changes in the industry.
PS.Since I’m a big advocate of Clickbank affiliate marketing but I have include Shareasale marketplace instead of Clickbank here. Just because, I have tried many times to promote some products from both of the networks and each time found success with Shareasale affiliate links. Pinterest did not allow to embed an affiliate link from Clickbank. (It is might be because of the nature of Clickbank Hoplinks)
Twitter is about the exchange of ideas in 140 characters or fewer. Crucially, unlike Facebook or LinkedIn, Twitter is often used by people who have never otherwise made contact with each other, in order to have tightly-focused conversations about things that interest them. This makes it perfect for growing your network, and thus growing your userbase - if you know how to converse.
With over 1 million followers, this husband-and-wife duo started their recipe blog back in 2012, and make money from Amazon sales as well as on-site ads. They post delicious pictures of the best parts of recipes to really grab your attention and their Instagram page achieves a high level of engagement. The aesthetics are broadly appealing — their last post alone got over 16k likes.
Previously known as Affiliate Window but now officially referred to as “AWIN” after acquiring Zanox a few years ago, this network claims to work with over 13,000 active advertisers and 100,000 publishers (affiliates). Founded in Germany, AWIN’s merchants primarily hail from Europe (especially Great Britain) although the U.S. network is growing rapidly. AWIN is currently active in 11 countries.
Like titles, one of the first images we see for your videos are thumbnails. Creating a good thumbnail is a delicate skill- you want to try and make the thumbnail stand out from the crowd but you don't want it to appear amateurish. Different niches have different standards for thumbnails. Gaming thumbnails will usually be very bright, big bubbly text and attempt to give off an "awe" factor. But informational videos will usually have simple thumbnails with elegant text so that they appear professional.
** There are other programs affiliate programs that you can apply to for Pinterest depending on what you are wanting to promote.  Some of these (like Target) offer products in a variety of categories, but you will just need to look through ShareASale and other programs and read through their TOS and apply.  These are just ones that I use and were fairly easy to join and promote.
The easiest thing to do is to sign up for an affiliate marketing network like Commission Junction. They provide a marketplace where your affiliate program will be advertised to other affiliate marketers. They also provide the tracking software for your affiliates so you don’t have to build your own tracking system. In some ways this is better because it takes care of the trust issues. Affiliates are always suspicious of whether or not they’re getting credited for the sales they generate. By having an intermediary take care of transaction tracking and payments, the fear of being cheated is alleviated. 
They need a shopify plan (first 2 weeks are free, so if they do their store within one week they could actually get started for under $50, maybe less), They need a faceboob business account, which is free, and a budget of $5 per day for like 7 days (35$) to start promoting their products. As soon as they make sales, the money is directly in their paypal account (if using paypal), or there is a small deley to get their money in their bank account if they use shopify payments for example.
As I thought about it a bit more, a few more names came to mind. All these marketers are people I trust enough to educate someone I know and like, and they’ve all got awesome Twitter feeds. If you aren’t following these people already, start now. Oh – and there’s this thing called Google +, too. Most of them have a presence on that platform as well.
Posts without value are posts that will cause your audience to lose interest and the goodwill of your audiences, rendering your efforts of using social media for affiliate marketing useless. For example, on my social media platforms I like to have 80% of my posts as entertainment or education purposes only and only 20% of my posts have anything to do with promotions.
If you would like to provide your affiliates with a Shopify coupon code that they can give out to people instead of giving them their affiliate link, this feature is what you would use. When this feature is implemented, if a customers uses an affiliates promo code, they will get a discount for their purchase and the affiliate will get credited their commission for referring the sale.

Before we jump in, a quick note on the official Twitter guidelines: the platform doesn’t allow any third parties to inject paid tweets into a timeline on any service that leverages the Twitter API. So the opportunities to place sponsored messages are still somewhat “old school” in that they must avoid the types of automation that have become ubiquitous on the Web.

Hi, just to let you know that I had a conversation with customer service at Amazon.com and they only allow direct links to Facebook, Twitter and Youtube at the moment and I asked about Pinterest and the answer is no you can’t link directly to an Amazon product, you need to go via your own website or blog. If they catch you doing that, your account will be closed as it is against their TOS.
AWIN is probably best for experienced affiliates who can hit the ground running without a lot of guidance or feedback from the network. There is a $5 fee charged to apply to become an affiliate, but if you’re approved, the $5 will be added to your account. If your application is denied, however, you will lose the $5 fee. AWIN operates globally, but it is most heavily concentrated on British and EU merchants.

Make sure you're excited about the video as much as you want your audience to be. If you show no enthusiasm for your video, talk in dull voice or slow monotone style, how do you expect your audience to feel influenced by you? The best Affiliate Youtubers are masters of this craft; they make you want to buy the product but they are also entertaining and provide information in an attention grabbing way.
Social media has forever changed the advertising landscape. On platforms such as Facebook and Instagram alone, combined ad revenue totals well over $13 billion. Instagram reports over 700 million monthly active users, 400 million daily users, and is estimated to be a ten billion dollar industry by 2020, thus making it the most powerful social media platform with the most significant potential for affecting the affiliate marketing industry. The main goals of an affiliate marketer is to direct traffic to your site in order to, ultimately, convince web visitors to buy the product(s) being promoted. When drilling down on the biggest market of potential customers that you as an affiliate marketer can reach, Instagram and Facebook are the first places to look when crafting strategies through paid advertising on social media platforms.

As a rule, you shouldn’t post more than three times a day so that doesn’t leave you that many opportunities to post your affiliate links. In general, you should only invest time and efforts in Facebook marketing If you already have an audience, which trusts you and mostly uses Facebook. Otherwise treat it as a platform for sharing and promoting your content and driving more traffic to your website (where you can put as many affiliate links as you want, just don’t go too crazy).
Possibly the most important demographic you could factor in while shaping your affiliate strategy is age. Affiliate marketing means continuously trying to incorporate the newest marketing trends into your gameplan, but this money is as useless as data without analysis if you aren’t reaching the right audience on the right platform. In a study conducted by Envision Creative, around 90% of 18 to 29 year-olds interact with social media in some way, shape or form. It follows that success with millenials equals a continued need for staying up to date with new social media marketing trends. When targeting younger demographics as an affiliate, think about launching incentive programs for those customers who refer others to your business or product. These pseudo “loyalty programs” serve as extremely effective digital word-of-mouth. Also consider offering discounted services or products for promotion on social media.
The most important rule you need to remember when adding affiliate links is to mention that it is an affiliate link. In your pin descriptions, Pinterest urges you to always disclose that it is an affiliate link and affiliate networks require it. You can write this within your description or use #affiliate at the end of your description. This needs to be done in order to follow affiliate networks rules and abide by FTC regulations.
To summarize, the benefit of using an affiliate network to find affiliates suitable to your product niche is that you already have access to a pre-built audience of quality affiliates, ranking them among some of the best affiliate programs. The perk of creating your own ecommerce affiliate program, on the other hand, is that you have more control over it and will likely pay fewer fees. Keep in mind that the downside of creating an ecommerce affiliate program from scratch is that you’ll need to find your own affiliates, which can be a challenging aspect of affiliate marketing for beginners. Fortunately, if you already have a substantial customer base, you can also allow your customers to be affiliates as influencers, a common trend on blogs or platforms like Instagram. This can even help turn them into evangelists for your brand.

Shopify is an eCommerce solution similar to PayPal or Stripe.com—it allows you to make sales, purchases, and payments online. For someone running an affiliate program, this is obviously a necessary piece of the puzzle. Not only do you need to get paid for your sales, but you need your customers to be able to make purchases and—much as you’d like to forget this part—you also have to pay your affiliates!
You can set up a Tweet engagement campaign which will promote your tweets to other people’s timelines. You can choose a specific tweet to promote that perhaps has your affiliate link in there or perhaps it doesn’t and you simply want more relevant followers before you begin to send your affiliate link out. This does cost money but you can select your budget and even small budgets can have a fantastic ROI by the amount of people that see your tweet, interact with it, follow you and perhaps even go on to purchase one of your affiliate products.
One of the most efficient ways to get more followers or even increase clicks on a certain piece of content, is to run paid search to your Instagram page through Google Adwords. The best way to do this is to continuously analyze your conversion rate and budget, and then execute your keyword research properly. When people enter one of your keywords, your site will pop up in the top results as a sponsored link. This ensures your site gains traction and visibility from people who are actively searching for keywords relating to your business and affiliate strategy. The benefit to this strategy is that it’s a form of native advertising, so this paid search link will appear as an organic search result, thus earning you clicks from searchers.

No matter where you’re at with your business - whether you're a newbie or seasoned expert - it’s always beneficial to drive more traffic to your store. More traffic means more leads, more leads usually mean more conversions, and more conversions means more sales. The bottom line? Affiliate marketing done right can dramatically increase your sales and revenue.

Book mail and a book haul! Thank you very much @berkleypub for sending me a free copy of Vox to review! Gonna be reading this dystopian read this month! 🙌 . Hunger by Roxane Gay has been on my radar FOREVER so I was thrilled when @willoughbybooks chose it as my last subscription book! I’m very sad that my two year subscription has ran out but I’ll be resubscribing when I get a full time job 😍 and if you want to subscribe in the mean time, use the link in my bio to save 10%! #affiliate . The other three are charity shop finds from my outing this morning! I can’t resist picking up Toni Morrisons now and the other two just caught my eye. Idaho is described as a raw family drama and The L-Shaped Room is the account of a pregnant single girl in 1950s London! . I would love to hear your thoughts if you’ve read any of these! ☺️ . . . . . . . . . . . #voxbook #christinadalcher #hunger #roxanegay #tonimorrison #bookhaul #bibliophile #bookstagram #reading #igreads #bookworm #booknerd #booklover #booklove #lovebooks #bookish #bookaddict #read #fiction #secondhandbooks
When providing affiliate links, you want to do is discreetly but also so that the user will actually see it. You can place links in your description (mention this in your video) or even put annotations in your videos for people to click. I wouldn't spam your videos with links, otherwise people will just see you videos as pushy and trying to sell something. The best way is to appear genuine and honest.
Alexis Grant is an affiliate marketer, but she’s got other business models running too. She runs a content creation company, a site for writers, and has a bunch of training programs and other excellent resources. But she also does a lot of affiliate marketing, and she reveals her earnings, which is extremely interesting. Check out her recent post, Affiliate Sales: A Realistic Guide for Earning Revenue From Your Website.
This one's for the gamers out there.. the Nintendo Creators Program works much like any other affiliate program, whereby you receive a cut of every commission Nintendo receives from your YouTube videos, so long as those videos are Nintendo-related. It was designed for any youtuber that uses Nintendo copyrighted content in their videos, as a way to give back to the creators. The entire program is run through paypal, which may put some off, but should give you peace of mind that your transactions are safe. You have a choice between registering your entire channel, or just individual videos and the advertisement revenue share is 70% for entire channels and 60% for videos.
As for SocialOomph’s affiliate program, it’s fairly simple. To earn money, all your referral has to do is sign up for the free system and you begin earning a recurring 40% commission for the subscription fee if the customer upgrades to SoocialOomph Professional. You get a commission for the life of the referral and receive your payment every single month. They even offer a 5% commission on any referral who also signs up as an affiliate.
A decent computer. Making videos can consume your computer's processing power and RAM. If you're making long videos, doing lots of editing and recording, your computer will need a good CPU and a decent amount of ram. A good idea is to test your current computer out and see how you get on. If you find video capturing to be sluggish or video editing software keeps crashing, it's usually a sign that you need a better computer. Upgrading RAM is very easy and cheap to do; but a good high-end CPU can cost north of $200 these days.

For example, when you promote a Clickbank product, you might earn $25 in commissions per sale, but when you promote a high ticket program like Aversity, you can earn up to $3,000 per sale online. That’s why the high ticket products are an important part of any successful online business and you must include it in your own business if you’re planning to make it.


With all of my blog posts, I have the consistently scheduled to share on social media and on Pinterest. This keeps the content in front of my audience. I use the social media scheduling tools Post Planner and Tailwind for this. Many affiliate programs also have great affiliate managers that will send out information with special promotions that you can share. If there isn’t a big sale or promotion going on, I will still try to feature certain high-converting posts on Pinterest, to my email list, etc.
During test – My Twitter Bot application generates me in average $61,45/week  on auto pilot! Without any single click on mouse! Now I want to setup such bot to promote more affiliate products from ClickBank in order to generate even more profit… At moment I’m running only 3 twitter marketing auto bot. BUT! I can multiply them! Just imagine 100 bots running same time and generating in average $6145 per week or $24 580/month or $294 960 /year  – Not Bad!
Being creative in directing viewer attention to your links also helps in getting them to notice it. Adding calls to action in your videos is always an effective method. Physically pointing from within the video to where your links are placed is another clever tactic to direct people’s eyes to them. Toy reviewer Emgo316 does both when directing viewers to the stores that offer the figures he reviews.
Everyone likes a compliment. In fact, people like compliments so much they usually share it with their friends and followers! Use this to your advantage. It’s important for you to know who the big players are in your niche. For example, my website is about affiliate marketing. There are literally 10’s of thousands of affiliate marketers that are earning a full-time living. I could create a blog post about “The 10 Most Successful Affiliate Marketers In 2014” or “Affiliate Marketers Who Inspired Me” or any other list I decide to create. Once I’ve written an article and put it on my site, I can share it all over my social media accounts. But here’s the kicker – I would also send a message to all the affiliate marketers on my list with a link to the article. Just about every one of them will share it with their followers. Doing this on a regular basis can literally send thousands (even tens or hundreds of thousands) of visitors to your website every month while simultaneously helping to build your own following.
The site has certain requirements for you to be eligible. You need to first register at least 1000 subscribers and have an accumulated 4000 watch hours in the last 12 months. Once you meet these requirements, the site will review and approve your channel. If you can’t meet those numbers, we suggest at least buying enough views to get you there so that you can start earning with affiliate marketing.
For example, part of Michelle’s affiliate income comes from blogging tools and resources. Every month in her income reports, she shares all of the details on how to get started blogging. By the time Michelle’s reader finishes with her post, they know exactly how to get started and what products are necessary to purchase. All they have to do is click on the affiliate links she has included in the posts. She follows this model for every piece of affiliate content that she produces.

Shopify’s affiliate program is narrower since their target audience is those who want to build their own eCommerce sites. The program makes up for this with sizable rates. You can earn up to $58 for each successful referral. The company also has various tools to help in your affiliate campaign, including tutorials on how to better promote their products.
These guys post in-depth product reviews and comparisons that are some of the best around. If you want an informative breakdown of whether you should buy something or not, The Wire Cutter is an amazing resource. Their Twitter feed links directly to these reviews along with great pictures, and it’s easy to see why they have more than 80k followers — they are a major player in affiliate marketing.
A relative newcomer to the affiliate space, MaxBounty was founded in 2004 in Ottawa, Canada. MaxBounty claims to be the only affiliate network built specifically for affiliates. MaxBounty is exclusively a CPA (Cost Per Action/Acquisition) company that doesn’t deal with ad banners or the like, just customer links that the publisher (blogger) chooses where to place on their website.

A U.K. based dating affiliate network that operates a number of mainstream and niche dating sites, including Cupid.com, Flirt.com, BoomerDating.com and PlanetSappho.com. You can promote any of these sites based upon the needs of your audience, and with so many sites to choose from, it’s pretty easy for most affiliates to find at least one or two that are a good fit. Commission rates at Cupid plc can be impressive, too, with $15 paid just for free sign ups, and up to 90 percent commission paid on paid memberships.
Shopify is probably the most popular e-commerce solutions provider out there, but because there are so many products and options, newcomers can easily get confused. If you believe your audience has products to sell and could benefit from Shopify’s products and are able to elucidate the benefits of signing up for Shopify, you can definitely earn some big money with their affiliate program.
On a monthly basis, I’ve had success devoting an hour or two to a couple of activities. First, I send out a monthly newsletter to my affiliates (you can typically do this within your affiliate app). In the email, I let them know about anything new that’s cooking – and encourage everyone to log into their affiliate dashboard so that he or she can share the news.
That’s how you make money on Pinterest with affiliate links. Uploading the pin is simple. However, getting clicks can be a challenge in the beginning. I was struggling with that until I took a course called Pin to Profits – Affiliate Marketing. It goes over design tricks you can use on Canva or PicMonkey to entice people to click on your pins. You can learn more about the course in my interview with the creator, McKinzie Bean.
SkimLinks works very similarly to VigLinks in that it is designed for bloggers who don’t want to do a lot of hands-on work to participate in an affiliate program. SkimLinks also works much like VigLinks in that it uses a plugin or script to create dynamic links in your content to send visitors to higher paying offers from merchants. SkimLinks claims to work with over 24,000 merchants/advertisers.
Creating a blog is also a great idea to along with your products. Not only does it give you the ability to showcase your products, but it keeps your readers up to date with upcoming products, promotions, descriptive posts, social media sharing, email list building, etc. Here is a FREE 7-Day email course on how to start a profitable blog if you are interested.
1. You can start with what you have; advertise your affiliate program to your current customers and try to recruit your current customers to join your affiliate program. The benefits of recruiting your current customers are: (a) they are already loyal to you and your product so they believe in it (b) you already have their emails and phone numbers so you can contact them and inform them about your awesome affiliate program (c) who doesn’t want to earn money on the side?
This might sound a bit rude, but it’s true. Through many of my own first hand experiences, it has become obvious to me that people actually like being told what to do. If you post a picture of a cute little puppy, several people will probably like it, comment, or share it with friends. But what if you posted the same picture and said, “Click LIKE if you would snuggle with this puppy!” I can guarantee that you would get more “likes” by adding that phrase.

Leadpages claims that its affiliate program is not exclusively for affiliate marketers, which is true, but the narrow focus of this niche means that only professionals affiliate marketers will ever be able to earn significant income from the program. Leadpages’s affiliate program does offer quite a lot of different options (webinars, videos, blog posts, free marketing courses, etc.) to send referrals to, which can lead to higher conversion rates if done correctly.
JVZoo’s strength is that it allows experienced marketers to gain access to product launches and a huge range of online courses while setting up sales funnels and customized landing pages. It’s definitely not for someone who wants to monetize a blog or earn money by having users click through and buy physical products. If you’ve carved out a strong presence online in the marketing space, JVZoo might be a perfect fit.

Looking more like blankets of snow than desert dunes, the gypsum sands of White Sands National Monument engulf 275 square miles of New Mexico's Tularosa Basin. Unlike quartz-based sand crystals, gypsum sand does not readily heat up in the sun, so you can safely explore dunes in bare feet, even in the hottest of summer months. •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• 👇 📍 : New Mexico •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• Want featured?

When you include an affiliate link in your description be sure to say somewhere that it is an affiliate link. This can be in the form of a disclaimer at the bottom of your video description or as a parenthetical notation right next to the link. Also be sure to say what product it is for. Nobody likes being tricked into landing on iTunes or Amazon when they think they are going to an artist’s fan page or the ultimate zombie survival blog.
The term affiliate marketing as it applies to Youtube is the creation of video content that contains affiliate links in the video or the description of the video. An affiliate link is a link that leads directly to a product or website, that allows the viewer who clicked it to buy the product or sign up to a subscription ect. For every person that makes a purchase through your affiliate link, you can earn "commission" or a certain percentage of the profit off each sale. It might sound tricky at first, but really the affiliate link are the easiest part, it's getting people to click on them that's hard. Really the only way is to try and drive as much traffic to your videos as possible by creating quality content and promoting yourself right. Creating content that is designed for your affiliate links rather than jamming them down your audience's throats will likely get you a lot more clicks than the other way around.

PS.Since I’m a big advocate of Clickbank affiliate marketing but I have include Shareasale marketplace instead of Clickbank here. Just because, I have tried many times to promote some products from both of the networks and each time found success with Shareasale affiliate links. Pinterest did not allow to embed an affiliate link from Clickbank. (It is might be because of the nature of Clickbank Hoplinks)

These are some of the best ways that affiliate marketers can leverage social media to build their brands. Once you successfully drive traffic to your website, you need an effective solution to facilitate online payment process. That’s where the Payoneer Global Payment service comes into play. You can secure payments from global clients, efficiently, safely and affordably!


Best Forex Partners (BFP) was established in 2011 by a group of international financiers and global online marketing professionals who saw a need to change the nature of affiliate marketing for the better.  In a few short years they combined their over 60 years of combined financial and marketing experience to create a new way to affiliate market and have never looked back!
Affiliate marketing has now invaded Hollywood? We know it invaded US politics in Washington as some politicians (current and retired) are silent affiliate marketers or in MLM. Maybe we can look forward to hearing in the next few years about more celebrities going from actors and actresses to home-based affiliate marketers. Wouldn’t that be something?

This is the most important step in creating a successful YouTube channel. This does not mean, however, that you need a professional video editing studio and a $5,000 camera. While it is important to have clear and well edited audio and video, the most important aspect of these videos is the actual content itself. Providing a high quality, detailed and honest review of a product can be the determining factor of whether or not someone will purchase that product. 
Now, once you start following people, you will notice your own follower numbers increasing naturally. Many people enjoy seeing who is following them. If A dog lover sees my profile (@DogFoodScoop) they will probably click on my profile to see who I am. They will then see the link to my website and if they visit my site, they will be greeted with literally hundreds of dog food reviews. Sometimes, they will even find it so helpful that they in turn will share links on their own Twitter or Facebook feeds. It seems super simple (and it is), but simply following others who would be interested in your niche topic is good enough to gain a pretty good following of your own. It’s a good rule of thumb to expect about 25% to 30% of people to follow you in return for you following them.
Before you can expect people to follow you, it is important that you build yourself some credibility. Find those in your industry and begin following them. If you’re an affiliate marketer, for example, you can start following all of the companies you promote. But you should also follow individual people such as experts in your field. For example, I have a website called DogFoodInsider.com. On my twitter page (@DogFoodScoop), I follow all of the major dog food companies as well as popular dog experts such as Dr. Karen Becker and Cesar Milan. I also follow dog nutritionists, pet food stores, dog breeders, and anyone else involved with dogs. I’ll even follow random people who are clearly dog lovers and post a lot about their dogs.
It’s free to join the SellHealth affiliate program, though you do have to apply and be accepted before you can start promoting their products.  Once you’re accepted, you’ll have access to a number of tools, graphics, banners and more that you can use to promote SellHealth products.  The sales are actually made at company-owned Websites, which look professional and handle all of the selling. Commissions vary, but the base rate is 30% of all sales and upsells, and SellHealth says you can earn up to $350 per sale.
JVZoo’s strength is that it allows experienced marketers to gain access to product launches and a huge range of online courses while setting up sales funnels and customized landing pages.

When this feature is implemented, if a customers uses an affiliates promo code, they will get a discount for their purchase and the affiliate will get credited their commission for referring the sale.
Affiliate links were once just links. Remember that. The purpose of having links in any content (and the reason why affiliate marketing works) is because they are useful. They make purchasing the things we want easier. Don’t abuse your online platform by filling your page with spammy, pointless affiliate links. Be sure to create that quality content and only include them when and where they add value. It’s a balance that, when found, makes your viewers happier and earns you more commissions.
One of the prime reasons that social media is highly preferred because it does not demand any cost, at least for the basic features. You just need to create an account, add your group (family & friends), become familiar with the features and follow those people, who have the same interests like you. These platforms are free of charges, but you are supposed to invest both time and efforts. You need to run your social media campaigns for three (3) months approximately and you are required to devote hours for it. 

In the past, bloggers could only promote affiliate products via Pinterest indirectly by linking to a blog post that contained affiliate links. But now, if you are a blogger who has already joined affiliate programs for your favorite retailers in your niche, you can now share your affiliate links directly on Pinterest. That means that instead of creating a post to drive readers to, you can now pin and image of a product you love with your affiliate link on Pinterest. You can see an example of one of my “affiliate pins” below.
