I have seen many questions as of late concerning amazon affiliate links on Pinterest. Many are wondering how you add amazon affiliate links or amazon affiliate products on Pinterest. In an effort to help those having these questions I have decided to write this post to hopefully educate some people on proper affiliate marketing.
The fact is the last thing as an affiliate marketer that you should be concerned about is how to add amazon affiliate links on Pinterest. Instead you should be focused more on sending that traffic to your website. Once you have them on your website then you can direct them to your amazon affiliate links or get them on your opt-in list.
Some will say that this causes an additional click and people will not follow through because they have to click an additional link. This is not true at all, matter of a fact it is poor thinking when you have a mindset such as this. If people are interested in what you have to offer they will have no problem clicking an additional link.
The benefits of sending someone to your site first is huge. You got those visitors in your space now and can safely give them information on the product you are pushing. You can get them on your opt-in mail list to email them about the product. It is a proven fact that many may not buy the first time around when they see a product.
Sending someone directly to an amazon product through a direct affiliate link from a 3rd party site will cost you more business in the long term. Why not get them on your site where you have a chance to promote that product to them again and again. This is how affiliate marketing is really done, always send your traffic to your site first.
If you are linking to your site through your Pinterest images then you are building up your website and not the merchant (in this case amazon). You are keeping those visitors as your own and getting them on your opt-in list allows you to make more sales by also selling them something related to the original product.
The bottom line here is do not wonder about building an amazon affiliate link to Pinterest. Get those visitors on your site first, then go from there. For tips on using Pinterest see: Tips On Using The Latest Social Network, Pinterest.
