1. Follow your passion, build an audience and sell to them.

What is your passion? If people spend money in an area you like, you can make money.

Suppose you are addicted to fitness. You like to be fit, and keep fit. You are choosing a target audience: women in their twenties who want to be fit and attractive. Create a Pinterest account and boards that attract this audience.

Get followers on your boards, and create a mailing list. Some keen Pinterest users have a million followers and more. You don't need that many followers for your account to sell to your audience. If you don't know what to sell, don't worry. Once you have a few thousand followers, marketers will reach out to you with offers.

2. Choose a company to promote and ask for sponsorship.

Target a group, and build your followers on Pinterest as we discussed above. Then select companies that offer products that appeal to your audience. To stay with the "fitness" audience, connect with companies that sell gym machines or sports drinks.

Share your account stats on Pinterest with the companies you do business with, and seek sponsorship. Offer them a deal: They can use their brand on your account for a year.

3. Promote affiliate products.

Many companies want affiliates that will promote their products for a small commission on the sales generated. Find companies selling products you can promote, and sign up as an affiliate. Then promote the products on your boards, using your affiliate links.

4. Use search engine optimization (SEO) strategies to find Pinterest.

If you want to make money on Pinterest, people should be able to find your Pins and Boards, so use SEO strategies. You will not only be found on Pinterest, but you will also be found via major search engines, such as Google.

Make the most of your about profile. You have 200 characters (about 50 words). Be clear and descriptive, using keywords you expect researchers to use.

Also, use SEO strategies on your Pins. Each pin gives you 500 characters (about 100 words) of description, so make the most of it by adding keywords and links. Include keywords naturally, not in an undesirable way.

5. Create contests on Pinterest to sell your own products.

Maybe you want to sell your own products on Pinterest. Consider creating contests. They are famous and they can help you earn money.

However, keep Pinterest's guidelines in mind:

Contests are a common tactic that companies use to get people to engage with their brand, and we've learned a lot about how it works on Pinterest. If done well, they can be a catalyst to help people think and talk about your brand. But they can also motivate people to add pins they don't really care about, which is why pins from contests can often seem inappropriate and even unwanted.

Pinterest protects the experience of its users. This is great because it ensures that the network continues to grow.

6. Repin other people's pins to gain an audience and earn money.

Pinterest is a social network, so the easiest way to get people to repin your Pins is to be active. Pin the Pins of others, especially those in your target audience. They will notice you, and may start following your plates.

7. Make money by teaching Pinterest strategies to others.

As Pinterest continues to grow, a small industry has developed around it, with people developing tools to help Pinterest users.

After you've been using Pinterest successfully for a while, consider making money by teaching your strategies to others. Create e-books and courses to teach what you've learned.

So there you have it: seven effective ways to make money with Pinterest. You will also develop more of your own strategies as you become online.
