3 New to Make Money on Pinterest as a Content Creator...


Whether you're looking to increase business sales, build your personal brand, or drive website traffic to your blog, there are several ways to get paid using Pinterest.


1. Creator Rewards Program: Create inspiring & actionable content


This is my new favorite way to monetize on Pinterest. The Creator Rewards program pays content creators for inspiring, actionable Idea Pins.


In a nutshell, Pinterest publishes new editorial prompts (goals) on a monthly basis. Every prompt details specific engagement goals, like getting a certain number of saves per Idea Pin.


When you meet the goal(s), you’ll see rewards in your bank account the following month. It's an easy way to make anywhere from $200 to over $2000 a month.


Note: Creator Rewards is currently in testing with a small group of creators. Pinterest adds new participants on a rolling basis.

2. Partner with brands: Tag brands in Idea Pins


Start by uploading an Idea Pin in the app. Next, add the paid partnership label to be able to tag your partner brand.


Then tag your fav brands in your Idea Pins with the paid partnership tool. Once the brand approves the request, that brand name will show up on your Idea Pin.


Brands can also choose to promote your Idea Pins as ads, boosting your reach to even more people. Show make sure your Idea Pins are inspiring and actionable from the start!


Note: When you use the paid partnership tool, you work directly with brands to define the payment terms and process. Pinterest will not be directly involved in payment.

3. Make Idea Pins shoppable: Tag products


Allow people to shop your recommended products!


Tagging products in your Idea Pins allow others to shop your fav products. Simply search and tag any product you want to recommend to your audience.


You can also tag Idea Pins using affiliate links so you earn commission when people click through and shop.


Note: Pinterest isn’t part of affiliate agreements, so your commission will depend on the terms you’ve set up with external merchants or programs.
