    A couple months back i got really interested in Pinterest but decided to just start building followers till i got a lot before promoting anything and at the time there was a lot of fuss about them stopping promotional pins with affiliate id changes and what not so i figured it was probably for the better i just wait. But now i have a lot of followers and want to test the waters for the first time promoting stuff, so i have a question for the pinterest people out there who are up to date on how things work currently.

    What is the best way to say promote a clickbank product through pinterest currently? Like can you just upload the image and place your affiliate link in and everything be fine, or do you have to do something a little more elaborate to pass by now?

    I believe using a URL shortener for an affiliate link is working fine.

    I have read that you get better conversions by sending them to your own landing page instead of a direct link.

    Yes you can do a redirect once they hit your blog. If it is a wordpress blog, just download pretty link lite.
