How Pinterest have taken action against spammers
Can you make easy money on Pinterest?
If you’re looking to make easy money on Pinterest then you’d better start building your time machine because the current outlook doesn’t look promising. Although if you do manage to build a time machine I’d suggest you visit a more historical period in time instead of 2010. Now if you’re looking for a way to compliment your brand’s website, Pinterest can be extremely useful. An official Pinterest account with a recognisable brand is obviously going to attract more users from the off. Affiliate URLs may be out the window, but if you’re linking to your website or perhaps even your sales page I can’t see why Pinterest would have a problem with that. Just be sure your target audience actually uses the thing.
Pinterest user demographics
As soon as you start using Pinterest regularly you’ll probably notice that pretty much all the users are female. I can’t guarantee that all these users are legitimately women because let’s face it, we’re on the internet. According to a recent study, over two thirds of the users are female, with the most popular age group being the 25 – 35 year olds. Plus a whopping 97% of fans of Pinterest on Facebook are apparently women. If your website specialises in mustache combs or home brew beer, it’s probably time to throw in the towel. With such a massive female user base, it’s no wonder clothes dealers, jewellery makers and interior designers are so popular on Pinterest.
