    Hey guys, first of all, I want to apologise for not posting any threads for the last few months. I've been real busy with case studies, orders and on top of that - exams. I'm going to make this thread quick and short. I apologise if this method is old to you but I just recently tried it and started to get some good results so I thought Il post it.

    It requires Pinterest as the main source and it's pretty much Pinterest > Website with Adsense > Other offers. You may have already tried the method where you point Pinterest pins to your Amazon links and then repin it hundreds of times, and yeah, that has worked good for me too. But this method seems to be doing better.

    Here are my earnings and a screenshot of another website..

    [​IMG]

    (These earnings are from a few good hours)

    [​IMG]

    (This is from a website which gives you rewards for getting referrals. I managed to get A LOT and I have already claimed my free iPod Shuffle, iPad 2 and iPod Touch)

    1) I first created a pin at Pinterest related to getting free things online. I made about 10 pins on the same board all related to different prizes. For e.g., the first pin was about getting a free PS3, and then iPhone and so on.

    2) I gave each pin 1000 re pins. This may be too much, but it's always good to go high. I'm pretty sure you guys can find and get 200+ repins on Fiverr easily. Just be creative and get it a lot of re pins so that it becomes more popular, and attracts more exposure. In each pin, you want to link to your money making website, (read below for more info)

    3) I created a free Weebly site, bought a domain and redirected it to the Weebly. Didn't cost me much to be honest. Then just threw in some information about getting items online for free. Then at the bottom, I put a link to a website which pays you for bringing it referrals. I managed to get over 30 referrals in just a few hours. This is crazy. Trust me. 30+ referrals in a few hours lead to me getting an iPad, iPod and iTouch. It was crazy. These items are worth at least $500+.

    4) I had signed up to Adsense a few days ago, and I just used the Adsense code today into my Weebly. So far, I have made around $30+ in a few hours. I can easily make $50 every day if I keep things going the way it is.

    5) I also did some other marketing. I have a FB page with about 10,000 fans all directly targeted at the iPad niche so I used that to get more people to my site.

    So?

    In just about 48 hours from settings everything up, I'm making the money.

    Pinterest is a gold mine. I don't know how many times you may have heard this but it is the hottest thing out there now. Make a site. Promote something. CPA offers or whatever. Then go ahead and use Pinterest to drive traffic. Trust me - the traffic is crazy. Today, I've got about 2000+ views according to the Weebly Stats, but it's probably about 1000 when I check Analytics.

    I'm going to get this site to make at least $50 daily. That would mean it would make roughly $1000 a month. I can easily sell this site for about 10x its monthly profit, so a nice $10,000 for a website which took me under $50 to set up and a few hours of my time.

    I know this post wasn't really a detailed one but I hope you get the idea. Pinterest is your best start. You can drive traffic like crazy, and if targeted right, with the right offers you can be banking.

    And no, I am not joking. I know the noobs are probably thinking, "this guy is full of shit". Trust me, I had the most surprise when I found out I had got 30+ referrals. In total, from a few hours work, I had earned literally over $700. I've also got a nice email list of about 200 people so that's good.

    What you should now do...

    You should now do this yourself. You can get as much as 500 repins on Fiverr. You have nothing to lose here. If it fails, then that's $5 down the drain but that doesn't matter - at least you learn something and you can try add something to make it work next time.

    You should find something which will work for you. Don't copy someone WORD FOR WORD. What did I do different? I noticed everyone was targeting CPA offers but I thought I would target something different. I signed up to this website, after getting a recommendation from my cousin. It is basically a site which gives you prizes (such as TVs, iMacs and so on for getting referrals). My cousin told me how it took him about 2 months to get a referral. The thing which surprised me is that I got 30+ referrals in a few hours and already had earned over $700! So - find something different! You never know, it may start making you a fortune!

    If something doesn't work, find out why. No point doing something and then giving up cuz it failed. I would rather find out why I failed, then never find out.

    Have some fucking dedication. Too many people give up after their first failure. It sometimes annoys me so much. JUST TRY AGAIN AND AGAIN. There's going to be something which will work for you.

    Always find new ways of doing methods. Sometimes, shit just happens and it can mean that your main primary earning source will have got hit and you will be making less. But if you had about 2-3 backups in place, you can easily make up for the losses you make from the main source.

    You get the idea.. just try your best, and you can do it. I'm 20. You may be older than me, and I respect that. Anyone can do this. I bet even a 13 year old can. Just read about Pinterest. It's really simple to use and very easy to learn the features. You can do it.

    Any questions, feel free to ask away.

    I had been wondering what all the fuss was about pinterest and now I know. Definitely going to give this a go over the next few days. Can you point the pins straight to affiliate links?

    Pinterest is definitely amazing in driving traffic -- whenever I pin my articles I always get 10-15 re-pins immediately and a few conversions :D

    Although I cannot reply to you all your comments, I want to say a thanks to all of you for thanking me in return for this post ;)

    And yeah, the key is to add your own twists and turns. Landing pages, email submits, whatever - be creative.

    Thanks for taking the time. I have been meaning to get into this and your OP pushed me over the edge lol. I already setup the account posted a few pins and ordered 2 gigs giving me quite a few repins, comments and likes. Mind sharing which gig you used?
