How to Monetize Pinterest Traffic
A few weeks ago I had the privilege of talking with Alea of Premeditated Leftovers on Blab. I wanted to pick her brain about using ads to monetize Pinterest traffic. She delivered a TON of information. Bust out your notebook and pen because you’re going to want to take some notes. And guess what? She has no pop-ups or videos ads!
Alea also shares her favorite tip for placement of her social share buttons. Genius idea!

Resources mentioned in the Blab:
CPC — Cost-per-click — You want these in your post!
CPM — Cost-per-mill — How much you are paid per 1000 people who see the ad. Make money on traffic even if you don’t have clickable ads.
CPA — Cost-per-action — Magazine or subscription service ads. Avoid these in your sidebar.
Think about creating your own ads for your site so it funnels people back into your content.
