    I have over 100k followers and trying all different fucking networks cant get them to convert.

    Amazon Fail.
    Commision junction Fail
    Shopsense -worked good but got banned twice for 'dishonest marketing' (seems they are following in adsense's fotsteps with arbitrary bans)
    Don't know what to do with them now.

    Any ideas?

    The question isn't the network ,its how you do it.
    Do you have a clicks?
    What are you doing?
    Do you have a shop?Blog?whatever?

    Yes I get around 100 click thrus a day. No sales.

    I do pinterest-> e commerce setup website -> ads

    Altho the click thru to offer is kind of deceptive :p there is no ad it just says 'see more' and they are redirected to affiliate site with trakcing code. But i also tried with banners and it was the same deal. Actually I currently do pinterest and click thru to aff website. I skipped out going to my own website so i would get more clicks.

    Maybe you are following crappy spam accounts from fellow BHWs. Even 1 million followers will convert 0,0.

    You could create a review site.

    That way users could click through to your site -> you'd convince them to buy the product with a good review -> they buy -> you profit $$

    Amazon and CJ work very well with pinterest. It's working for others so it's definitely your promotional methods that's lacking.

    I wouldn't skip out using your own website. It's like a cars saleman telling to buy this yellow car right now without giving you any benefits or reasons why you should.

    ...that is probably where your problem lies.

    As well, 100 clicks a day isn't that large of a sample size...

    To earn some money for the beginning you could sell shoutouts on fiverr and other places, i have 3,5k niche related followers and get 5$ for a shoutout, if clients buy multiple shoutouts at once they pay between 3-4$.

    Also promoting informational adsense/affiliate sites to your audience could be profitable.

    I am currently earning with Adsense + Pinterest but I still want to earn more through affiliate income.

    I haven't tried it yet but from what I have read here you should have a review site instead of just redirecting to your affiliate links.

    Also, check where your traffic is coming from. If most of your traffic is mobile, affiliate links won't convert because the cookie is saved with the Pinterest app in-built browser.

    It isnt junk traffic because they wouldnt click thru to my offer would they if it was just bots.

    I remembered the other day that I was actually gettting between 3-5% ctr with adsesne when I used that so Im thinking to go back to that now.

    All this presell bullshit for CPA seems like loads of work and would need a redesign of my whole website. I understand it can give you more money in the long run but at the moment Im more focused on honing my bots and scaling up.

    Im open to suggestions tho if theres a straightforward way to do it. I used to know people who did amazon/seo and all they did was a picture of the product and then click thru to buy now to amazon and it worked well for them. I tried that too but didnt work.

    You came here to ask for help, but you're shooting down everyone offering you advice?

    Posting links directly to your affiliate site on Pinterest will just get you banned and all your pins removed. So already you need to change what you're doing, no argument, no "but this person did xyz" bullshit. It's not sustainable, it's not going to work. Pinterest cracked down hard on this, and you bet your ass if I see you do it on my group boards you're getting removed along with all your spammy shit pinning.

    Build a half decent website first and go from there. No one said it was supposed to be easy, if it was no one would work a shitty job.

    Did you try out Ebay?? If your Audience is mostly non related to USA or UK try Ebay, as they have some enormous reputation and popularity over the other Other Countries than Amazon.

    I didnt mean to say its bullshit that was a little strong in hindsight so I apologise for that.

    I do have a good (ecommerce layout) site and several other bhw members have commented it is good. one of them makes websites professionally so I guess he knows what hes talking about and i didnt even ask them if it looks good.

    Whether its optimised to the maximum for cpa is another matter.

    I was only doing the direct aff link thing once as a test for a couple weeks. The majority of the time pins lead to my site. Ive now moved back to adsense and get couple dollars a day. The ctr is 5% average but unlike another niche im in -with similar amount of accounts/followers- where i get around 120-150 impressions a day I seem to only get around 50 impressions a day in fashion since I guess there is less impetus to click thru. So same ctr with adsense if they do go on the site but less click thrus.

    So with that said I guess I would have to incetivise the click from pinterest to my site somehow and also once all the site thru 'preselling'? Im not lazy I just have at least 3 methods Im working on at the moment maybe 4 so hard to prioritise.
