Once upon a time, Pinterest had this lovely little follow button, located at the bottom of each pin, for viewers to use when they wanted to follow someone. In fact, Pinterest used to make a suggestion to the viewer on who to follow. But, over the years they have made several changes – some good, some not so much. One of those changes was to get rid of the follow button on pins. Now, if you want to follow someone, you have to click their profile. As a result, the daily increase in followers decreased for many. [sigh…] I was one of those people, and for almost two years, my follower count was stagnant. This is my story on how to break a Pinterest stall, or at least how I did it.
I often get questions from new bloggers surrounding the issue of ads and affiliate marketing. Most of the time, they want to know how many visitors they need before they should accept advertising or become an affiliate. Well, that is really a loaded question, because every blog is different. Some people seem to become profitable with very little following. While, others struggle even after they reach high numbers. Figuring out the right time and formula for ads and affiliate marketing for bloggers can sometimes be tricky. I can provide you with a few formulas; however, there are a few other issues that you really ought to take into consideration when making your decision.
