Pinterest is one of the most popular social bookmarking platforms with more than 100 million monthly active users. Some time ago Pinterest announced that it had lifted its ban on Affiliate links which is great news for anyone in the industry!
With the lifted ban, Affiliates now have an additional strategy to consider when pinning an image. Instead of directing people to your website or blog post, bloggers can now insert an Affiliate Link!
Simply copy your Affiliate’s tracking link or create a deep-link and then paste it into the pin’s Website URL!
Because Pinterest users are looking for useful and inspirational products, the platform is a natural place for marketers to share items and services they believe in.
