    Hey there, I was wondering if anyone was actually successful by combining Amazon&Pinterest. I haven't seen any threads where someone has made $50 a day from this method... in fact of all the journeys that I've read, only Healzer's thread has indicated any level of success. As for myself, I was only able to make $5 in total from Amazon+Pinterest method...

    What do you guys think? Does pinterest and amazon have bad synergy ? Or is Pinterest + adsense just a much better method...

    Pinterest's audience is perfect for Amazon. I just think you need to scale your operation and/or promote better products. I've had some of my articles spread around Pinterest without me knowing and they seem to convert fairly well when you promote the right product(s).

    Here is a small infographic from SproutSocial to help you understand the audience a bit better! Best of luck!

    I know of a few people who are doing well with it, but I've tried Pinterest + Amazon and have failed. You really need the right niche, and need to know how to target your audience properly. Probably focus on group boards.

    I don't focus on group boards, rather I will focus on a niche and grow my following until I get lots of traffic. For what I do, group boards are too risky and will get my accounts banned. My niches work well with adsense, and I make good money that way.

    You need to pick the right product to promote on pinterest and avoid the following things to gain success

    * Don't create different niche boards on single account, just create relevant niche boards
    * Don't repin much random shits, review the repins manually before posting
    * Don't change the original pin links on all repins, change only in few repins and try to give your link on description on few pins.
    * Don't upload the pins without watermark when those are grabbed from somewhere else.
    * Don't waste time by focusing on group boards.

    I bought the pinbot too and followed heazler's guide with a very nice site and had no luck. Barely made 20 bucks last month.

    they will not tell you the real method, they will tell you only to sell you products

    Thats because heazler was trying to sell a bot for you guys and he needed a way to convince you guys to buy the bot.
    Remember its all about internet marketing .

    I know this post is a couple of months old and OP probably stopped monitoring it. But I'm curious if he or others started an Amazon+Pinterest campaign. And how's it going? With click-happy mostly female audience in the right demo (ages 18-49), I'm thinking that Amazon and Pinterest is a good match.

    Scale and Nail baby. Add 100 accounts, grow accounts for 6 months, then come back and tell us how much you made
