    Hey guys and girls,

    Just a post to put some ideas out into the community for how I do Pinterest affiliate marketing with Amazon and CJ.

    Basically I've made a Wordpress plugin that I can create affiliate links. Then when you visit mysite slash productX, you get redirected to the Amazon or CJ product page. If you are Pinterest though (as in the website itself not the user), you get shown an image of the product.

    By only showing an image to Pinterest, I get away with posting Amazon affiliate links.

    I have also made an application that exports Amazon products based on a criteria that you set in the program. A picture is easier to show what I mean so here:

    This creates a csv file in the same format as the CJ product feed. So along with CJ and Amazon, I can automatically create affiliate links on my Wordpress site and then automatically pin them on Pinterest using this program, all in one step:

    And heres a screen of my website management:

    Please ask any questions. I'm glad to answer.

    I've just started using these tools last month. I seem to get a far better commission rate on CJ rather than Amazon but I hear that's common. I'm making a few hundred a month, enough to cover hosting and most of my mortgage so I'm happy. Looking to step it up a few notches in future.

    LOL. Great comment. However, I think you are being a little harsh on him - what he has posted will be of great value to some on these boards, and that is something to encourage.

    Hi,

    few questions:

    1. How many sites do you have? and roughly how thick/thin are they?

    2. Is this a similar plugin you'd recommend that does what your plugin do?

    3. Do you do any mass account pinning? or you just post it to pinterest and that's it?

    Thanks for sharing!

    LadyG

    So, how to get your application? Why to reinvent the wheel.

    Other than CJ, does other affiliate networks work for pinterest? I had no success with amazon for some reasons.
