    Greetings BHW!


    I have been doing pinterest + amazon in the past 5 months and guess what, i only earned $70 something. I am really close in giving up, i have 5 accounts. two has 1k each and 3 has 600 to 700 only followers. I have been re-pinning Viral and High quality post. repins and likes aveg. from 2-10, but i cant seem to have followers like 100-300 a day like some guys doing this method too in this forum.

    I dont know how the other guys do it guys to be successful in this method. Im just so down right now, i thought if dont give up there will be reward in the end. but i guess not. I have a really Nice website it is clean and elegant, high end looking ,but i think it is not enough to make $30 a day given my results in this past 5 months.

    So im thinking changing my set up. from pinterest - ecommerce site with amazon aff. to pinterest - blogspot( with re-written articles from https://www(dot)yahoo(dot)com/style) - my ecom site with amzn aff.

    Also, do you think buying pinterest followers or repins will do good?

    Maybe if i provide content there will be changes to the result? I really need some guidance in this, i just dont want to make my 5 months go to waste, and more days to come :/

    P.S *I do not have more money to invest for i have invested my money to create the ecom site, for my monthly hosting fee, the one that made my website is super duper kind that he is letting my site up until i can bank and pay him*

    You should focus more on getting the traffic as opposed to your e-commerce site to begin with. Try increase your Followers for each account and try be extra specific and make it targeted. Ive also seen a Pinterest bot in the marketplace aswell you should check out , might be of great use to you by pulling in more targeted traffic. Also try other social media platforms such as Instagram which is very similar, Diversifying your social media outlets could improve your sales tremendously.

    $70 in 5 months is better than 99% of the users that register here! Keep trying! :)

    Hi,

    Well, to start with, Amazon pays low rates of commission so you'd need to be sending high amounts of traffic to really see some income or only focus on products that are hot sellers or high ticket.

    There are a lot more aff progs out there than just Amazon but people opt for Amazon as they're easy to join, set up and promote but at a starting fee of just 4% you really do need high traffic and the type that converts.

    Step back and look at what you're promoting. This is where you will make your money. I don't know you or your skill set but can you create your own product that you can sell from you site that is a good match for traffic from Pinterest?

    It may be a bit late now as you have already invested your money but you could have had a book written in the health/diet niche and sold it from your own site for $5 then used Pinterest to drive the traffic to your site directly. A $5 ebook hardly sounds worth bothering with, right? But to make $5 via Amazon you'd need to sell $100 of products.

    And when I say "ebook" I don't mean get one written and through it up on Amazon as a Kindle. Sell it yourself, directly from your site and make sure that you're collecting your customers details and build a list of buyers. This list, as you build it, will become your reliable, on tap, money revenue. That is something you can't always build when selling your book as a Kindle on Amazon unless you start placing those opt-in forms inside your book but not everyone will opt-in there.

    There are a number of options available to you, like there is everyone, but you need to examine what you can do or get done for you in order to be able to choose the option that is best suited to you.
