With over 400 million active users, it has the potential to be a top driver of traffic to your affiliate links. In this chapter, we will guide you through the process of getting started with Pinterest for affiliate marketing.
Creating Your Pinterest Business Account
The first step in getting started with Pinterest for affiliate marketing is to create a business account. This will give you access to Pinterest’s built-in analytics tools, allowing you to track your performance and make data-driven decisions.
Creating a business account on Pinterest is relatively easy. You can sign up for a new account by visiting pinterest.com/business/create/. Once you have created your account, Pinterest will prompt you to fill out your profile and business information. Make sure to create a profile that reflects your niche and includes relevant keywords. This will help your profile show up in search results when users are looking for products or services in your niche.
Choosing Your Niche
Once you have created your Pinterest business account, you need to choose a niche. This is a crucial step as it will determine the type of products or services you will promote on your Pinterest page. Choosing a niche that you are passionate about can make the process much easier as you will be more invested in your content creation.
When choosing a niche, it’s important to think about the target audience and their interests. Are there any products or services that are popular among your target audience that you can promote? It’s essential to choose a niche that has high potential for affiliate marketing to drive traffic and generate revenue.
Finding Affiliate Products to Promote on Pinterest
The next step is to find products to promote on your Pinterest page. ClickBank and DigiStore24 are popular platforms with a wide range of products for affiliates, with ClickBank being the most widely used and trusted. Products are ranked by the gravity index, which refers to how often an affiliate sale is made. We recommend choosing products that have a gravity index of 50 or higher.
You can search for products within your niche and choose ones that will appeal to your target audience. Once you have found products to promote, you can create multiple affiliate links by clicking “promote” and then “create hot link” and saving them in a notepad to use later on.
Optimizing Your Pinterest Profile for Affiliate Marketing
To make your Pinterest page professional and attractive, you need to make sure it reflects your niche and your brand. A logo and banner that reflect your niche are essential to attract visitors’ attention and convey your brand image.

Direct.me is a great platform for storing multiple affiliate links in your bio, as it makes it easy to redirect visitors to pages with all of your affiliate links, making it more accessible for potential buyers to find your links and purchase the products.
Successful pages can be used as inspiration for designing your profile. Make sure to create boards relevant to your niche and provide lots of high-quality content.

Once you have some content in place, you can start promoting your affiliate links and generating traffic through Pinterest.
Using TikTok Videos on Pinterest to Increase Traffic to Your Affiliate Links
Reposting TikTok videos on Pinterest as idea pins can generate traffic to your affiliate links.

Chapter 4: Using TikTok Videos on Pinterest to Increase Traffic to Your Affiliate Links
With its short-form video content and fun filters, TikTok has become one of the most popular social media platforms in recent times. And as a marketer, you can leverage this platform to drive traffic to your Pinterest page, which in turn can direct users towards your affiliate links. In this chapter, we’ll explore how you can make the most of TikTok videos on Pinterest to increase traffic to your affiliate links.
Why Use TikTok Videos on Pinterest?
Before we dive into creating and reposting TikTok videos on Pinterest, let’s understand why this strategy is effective. Firstly, short-form videos are bite-sized and easy to digest, making them perfect for users who are endlessly scrolling through their feeds. When you convert your TikTok videos to idea pins on Pinterest, users are more likely to stop and engage with your content.
Secondly, TikTok’s algorithm is designed to promote virality, especially among niche communities. Using trending hashtags on your TikTok videos can increase the chances of them being discovered by users who are interested in your niche. When these videos are reposted on Pinterest, they can continue to generate traffic even months after the original post.
Creating TikTok Videos for Pinterest
When creating TikTok videos for Pinterest, there are a few things to keep in mind. First, you’ll need to ensure that your TikTok videos are vertically oriented to fit the Pinterest format. You can use editing tools such as InShot to crop your TikTok videos to the correct dimensions.
Secondly, remember to add captions to your videos. Pinterest is a visual platform, but adding captions can help users who are unable to watch videos with the sound on. Captions can also provide additional context to your videos and increase engagement.
Lastly, when posting your TikTok videos on Pinterest, make sure to credit the original creator. Doing so can help you avoid copyright issues and also promotes mutual support among creators in your niche.
Reposting TikTok Videos on Pinterest
Reposting your TikTok videos on Pinterest can help increase traffic to your affiliate links. However, before doing so, make sure to review your content and ensure that it is relevant to your Pinterest page and niche. You can also add additional information or context to your TikTok videos when reposting them on Pinterest to make them more actionable for users.
It’s important to maintain a consistent posting schedule when reposting TikTok videos on Pinterest. This can help your content gain traction and generate more traffic over time. You can even schedule your reposted TikTok videos using tools such as Tailwind to save time and boost efficiency.
Using TikTok videos on Pinterest can be a powerful way to drive traffic to your affiliate links. By creating and reposting engaging, niche-specific content, you can attract users who are interested in your niche and increase the chances of them clicking through to your affiliate links. Additionally, reposting TikTok videos on Pinterest can help extend the lifespan of your content and generate traffic long after the original post. Give this strategy a try and see how it can work for your affiliate marketing efforts.
