Just a little warning though. Amazon Associate is again very divided! I've read an article with someone who got in touch with Amazon and they basically said it's at your own risk. However, in general, you can post your affiliate links from Amazon on Pinterest, ONLY when you also have a blog which you actively use (which should be about the majority of us ;))

Good to know, Thanks.

Thank you

Where do you join these "affiliate networks" ? and essentially this is websites/apps like pintrest allowing you to leave a linkn to your site with a product as an advertisement on their site?

You can join Amazon, ClickBank, FlexOffers etc. I’m personally part of the last two. You just need to create an account and then you can navigate through their database and find the affiliate programs that best fit your niche.

You can promote your website on apps/social media’s such as: Pinterest, Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr etc
