  • Adding a Board: Each category is added on a separate board. You can choose the option of creating a new board from add option in Pinterest.
  • Naming the Board: Naming of the board should be search engine optimized. A fancy name is of no use if it does not come up on search engine as Pinterest is a search engine.
  • Adding URL: Adding URL of your blog or website is important as it directs the consumer to your website or blog directly.
  • Uploading a Pin: Here is the twist, to add affiliate link you should upload a link instead of adding a pin. This uploading of the link will be done from the computer you are using.
  • Selecting the right board: While uploading the link, you should be careful while choosing the right board, once you choose the right board, you will be actually categorizing your pin.
  • Adding description and URL: You are given maximum of 500 words for writing description and URL, so you should keep your description small so the link shows up. This link should be your affiliate link.
  • Adding link behind the picture: To add link behind the picture, you will have to go to edit the pin option and there you have to add your link. If your link is too long then you can use a link cutter which shortens the link for example bit.ly. In edit pin option you will be directed towards the box where you will have to add the link.
  • Adding Price: In the description just add ` $ `/ dollar sign with the value and the Pinterest automatically adds a cool price strip on the corner of your pin.
  • Affiliate Link Appears: After this your product will appear with a price tag and your product will be live for selling.
