You may remember how the story about how Roger Ebert made money using Amazon Affiliates and Twitter by recommending merchandise. An anonymous man is doing something similar, but on a more massive scale and with Pinterest. He is even raking in over $1,000 per day. Here is how it works.
The Pinterest Spammer creates thousands of fake accounts, but he does not reveal his method on how he does it. Then his spam accounts “repin” the same pictures of merchandise that is connected to his Amazon Affiliates account. Some people end up buying these goods and he makes a cut off of them.
Here is what the guy had to say about his commissions from Amazon using Pinterest:
As the days came my earnings increased and increased and increased. First week of doing this I made around $2,000 which was Feb. 20-29. I stepped my game up and changed the way I was doing some things, and I saw a dramatic increase in my earnings. Went up to $500-800 a day. Kept at it and for the past two weeks I have made over $1,000 a day with the highest earnings being around $1,900.
I fully expect next week’s earnings to be $2,000-2,500 a day. There are no guarantees in this business and it could all come crashing down soon. Not a matter of if, but when will it happen.
