Pinterest c’est le site à la Mode. Il suffit de « pinner » des images ou des videos sur votre tableau de bord Pinterest. Chaque image épinglée a un lien.
C’est ce qui a donné l’idée à un spammeur de faire pointer ses photos sur son lien amazon. Il reçoit ainsi les royalties d’amazon en créant de nombreux profils Pinterest.

Pinterest Spammer: My name is Steve and I’m 24 years old. Currently I have no ‘real’ 9-5 job. My only source of income is from the earnings I make online. I have three associate degrees, all in aviation. I did two years of Avionics, one year of powerplant and one year of airframe. I have an FCC license and soon when I’m not so lazy I will go and test for my A&P (airframe & powerplant) license. I live in one of the lower 48 states.
Well, when I started I did a test run to see what kind of traffic I could get. I manually posted pins for 4 hours straight and let them sit for a day. Next day I made something like $20 I think. So I decided to automate it cause I could see the huge potential this had.
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.
