Are you like me, and get LOST pinning things on Pinterest like a madwoman? Did you know that you could actually make money on Pinterest, just by pinning things you like?

Yes girl! Affiliate marketing on Pinterest is back, baby! You do not need to have a blog in order to do this, the program I use is free to sign up, and it takes under 10 minutes to get started!

(Totally kicking myself for not starting this sooner!)

So, let’s talk about Awin!

Awin connects advertisers and publishers of all sizes to help their businesses grow online! There are so many niches, and you’re sure to find one that makes you excited to jump out of bed in the morning!

My go-to’s are health & wellness products, and fashion!

Think of what makes YOU excited though. What could YOU talk about for hours?


There’s literally something for everyone!

I’m going to break down for you EXACTLY what I do to make an income online, on Pinterest without even touching my blog!

The benefits of using Awin:

  1. It’s easy to use!
  2. Great customer support to help you with any questions you may have through a convenient online chat box.
  3. It’s absolutely free to join! So why not give it a try?

Quick view of steps:

  1. Sign up with Awin!
  2. Choose your Pinterest account as your website! (Easy Enough)
  3. Get approved! (Yay!)
  4. How to use your dashboard. (Easy peasy, promise.)
  5. How to use Awin for Pinterest. (The fun stuff!)

Step One:

Join Awin by clicking here! Make sure to right click, so you can refer back to my page during the rest of the steps.

Step Two:

While applying for your Awin account (They have a 100% approval rating, so this should be no issue) make sure to use your Pinterest URL as your website during the prompt. For example, my URL is You can find it by going to your profile page on Pinterest.

Step Three:

You’re approved? Yay! Pour yourself a glass of wine and do a happy dance because here comes all the fun stuff!

Step Four:

Once you have your account, you’ll want to familiarize yourself with the dashboard. So click around, have some fun, and get to know everything you can about Awin! But, before you do that, let’s discuss finding these companies you’ll be advertising for.

Steps within steps, NOOOOO.
Don’t worry, my child, it’s just a few simple clicks.

  1. Click on dashboard in the upper right-hand corner.
  2. Click on Advertisers
  3. Click Join Programs

BOOM! That was easy.

Step Five:

Once you’ve found a few companies you want to work with, start checking out their products! Pin the pictures of the stuff you like, and use the affiliate link (will be found under the same steps above). You’ll make a commission based off of clicks and purchases! Super easy, and so much fun!

Bonus Tip: Join group boards to share your products!
