    I have been thinking of setting up an amazon store with Pinterest. I have bought domains and stuff. I signed up with amazon also.

    BUT I cannot decide which way would be best to go about it. Should I do this?

    Pinterest -> Pins -> Product Shop site with pics and links -> amazon site.

    I cant determine how to integrate amazon with my wordpress. I guess having an inline framed shop isn't a good idea because of the design.
    Or maybe I should go with a site which has proper content and CB product ads as banners?

    I'd appreciate if someone with experience in this field spared some suggestions.

    getting conversions via pinterest with amazon is a bit harder as it seems. im currently trying different ways to get people to purchase from my astore but no conversions atm. im recieving several repins and followers on a daily basis butit seems the second they get that redirected page to the store they back off quick and go along doing their pinterest thang.. ill keep you posted as progress comes along .

    I'm getting .0032 conversion. Pinterest isn't looking very easy to crack.

    Try other methods, cause just to spam around, no working any more... You need to be Flexible, i mean: If you see some problem ahead, find a way to go around them...i see there some guys with many accounts, they spam a lot, im tired already :) of their actions... but im sure they don't make those money anymore, as i made earlier... i dont spam anymore, but they seems to continue, Out of Brain !!! IDIOTS... thats why is very important to keep every method in Private, cause 1000 of noobs from around the word can Kill any Great Method in less than 24 Hours... Right now, im making more money then i've been making with amazon....

    No. If they want to be redirected to anything at all, it has to be something similar to pinterst or something similar to their interest (ie. something they clicked on).

    I don't see it really working with pinterest as much as it could have. Looks like you either A.) need to get lucky off a really hot product B.) Just use the site to boost traffic.....It seems they're already catching on and most users just repin/like/comment rather than one seeing traffic conversions. I have one image that keeps getting repinned but the conversion for traffic increase doesn't seem THAT great.

    Maybe other products/images it'll do better.....and again it's becoming a bigger numbers game now since there's spammers flooding pinterest.

    Better to make a amazon review site and promote it with everything - pinterest, youtube etc.

    I would try CPA instead, just think about the quality not quantity, and related offers, not Victoria's Secret ones.

    @iPinner i set up a landing page for cpa offers and my conversions are terrible. you are having success with CPA on pinterest? pinterest traffic in general seems to be too intelligent for cpa which is unfortunate

    This Pinterest is one of the most intriguing sites to come along in a long time

    I agree, they immediately recognize crap and not only do they ignore it, they will actually comment on the pic and say something like "DON'T click through, it's just an affiliate page".....lol
