They can also be found in the free class handout, which you can get by subscribing to our emails. Included in the class handout is a handy ‘getting started checklist’, so you don’t miss a single step.

You can take a look at my business Pinterest account here (along with updated stats: I now have over 12,000 followers). 

UPDATE: Pinterest now says you can pin as much as 100% of your own pins, but with one caveat: they want you to create NEW pins (for old content you’re re-pinning.) Experts recommend 2-3 new pins per old content per month. 

Etsy Affiliate Marketing on Pinterest, Part 6:

PLEASE NOTE: This class was created before I rebranded and focused my business 100% on affiliate marketing. So you’ll see my old site and Pinterest account used in these videos. 

ALSO: When I first created this course, you could pin Etsy affiliate links directly, but Etsy has since banned that tactic. So these days, the only way to share your affiliate links is via your blog. I’ve updated the course in any areas that were outdated.

By the way, if you don’t already have a blog, I have a detailed tutorial here:

Reminder: the “class project section” in this case is simply the comment section below this post. 

One last and very important thing to remember about doing Etsy affiliate Marketing on Pinterest: be sure to give this process time to work! As I mentioned, it’s not a get-rich quick scheme. But if you take your time and stay committed, you can build a side hustle income that continues to grow, month after month, just like mine has. Although I make no income claims, I know this can work, because it’s worked for me. You just have to stay committed and dedicate a few hours a week to pinning those links!
