I have a confession to make. If you asked me 2 months ago what Affiliate marketing was I wouldn’t have had any idea what to even respond!
I wouldn’t have even dreamed of making my first affiliate sale in only 7 hours after learning what affiliate marketing was!
And now, in January 2018 I have made over $270 in affiliate sales.
Ok, I understand $270 might not seem like a lot but after spending months and months trying to earn any amount of money online, it is enough to get freakin’ excited about for me!
The $270 I have earned was before I even started a blog.
All I used to earn that was my Pinterest account and Pinterest affiliate marketing! Which, by the way, is also only about 2.5 months old and only have 210 followers at the moment.

So let’s start with the basics.
What Is Affiliate Marketing?
Affiliate Marketing is using your social platform to promote a certain product and using a unique affiliate link to that product. When someone chooses to make a purchase through your affiliate link, you may receive a small commission.
And the best part is it costs absolutely nothing extra to the customer!
In fact, it is usually more beneficial to the customer to buy something through an affiliate link as the merchant may offer a discount on a product if you purchase it through someone’s affiliate link.
Like for example, you can get your blog hosting at 50% off and get a free domain name if you purchase hosting through my link for Bluehost!
How did I get started with Affiliate Marketing?
One December evening I was scrolling through Pinterest as I always do. I was feeling frustrated from trying all the countless ‘make money online, get rich quick schemes’.
I came across Elise from House of Brazen talking about her ebook that promises to teach you how to make your first affiliate sale within 24 hours.
Immediately, I shrugged it off and was thinking ‘yeah right, sounds like another get rich quick scheme’ and closed the window. Luckily, I was smart enough to pin it for later though!
The next day, after spending 4 hours answering silly surveys just to earn $3.25 I remembered about the ebook again.
Then I started doing research about it and reading other peoples reviews of the ebook and found an overwhelmingly positive response to it!
Tons of people were making affiliate sales after purchasing the ebook by Elise so I was convinced to give it a try.
After purchasing the ebook, I inhaled it in about 2 hours while taking tons of notes. Because of the way the ebook is set up, it was actually very quick to start applying the techniques outlined straight away.
I had my Pins up and running in about 30 minutes!
So what exactly did I do to make my very first affiliate sale in only 7 hours after starting with affiliate marketing?
I quickly joined the affiliate program for the ebook. After that, I used the promotional Pin that Elise provides and posted it on Pinterest. I also decided to make a custom Pin of my own. I posted that one on a couple of my group boards on Pinterest.
Fast forward 7 hours, it was nighttime and I was ready to go to sleep. While brushing my teeth I quickly checked my emails.
Safe to say, I almost poked myself in my eye with my toothbrush after seeing this email pop up!
**it is also safe to say a certain someone went to the shop and bought a cheap bottle of (fake)champagne to celebrate**
I could not believe I had made my first affiliate sale in only 7 hours after starting to implement the methods in the ebook!
And I knew that if I could make $10, I could make a $1000 and so on.
I was also kinda kicking myself in the head for not getting started with this sooner!
Basically, all I did was make a custom Pin for my affiliate link using Canva and then Pin it to Pinterest with my unique affiliate link. I added a keyword filled description so that the Pinterest Smart Feed would pick my Pins up and show them to as many people as possible!
Then all I had to do was pin it to all the relevant Group Boards I was in.
I also added the Pins to my Tailwind list and scheduled them to be pinned every 24 hours to a different Group Board I was in. Scheduling them with Tailwind was a massive time saver as it basically did everything for me.
Between working a 9-6 job and keeping up with a crazy active dog, I barely have any time left in the day to be Pinning manually. If you are short on time I honestly recommend to get started with Tailwind asap! It is a lifesaver. If it wasn’t for it I would probably still be stuck trying to make my first affiliate sale. You can try 30 days of Tailwind for free if you use my link to sign up!
