How Social Media Helped Me Earn a Living?


I had made my online presence on Social Media a long time back. It was during my college days that I had made an account on Facebook, like most of my friends did. That was my first ever account on an online platform. I was quite excited by the idea of being able to share pictures and chat with friends. It was the initial feeling of being in the online world.

As time flew by, I got bored with chatting and sharing posts. I wanted to explore a little. I opened an account on Twitter. A few days later I found myself using Instagram. A few more days later, I was on YouTube. The list kept growing until the day I had opened an account for almost all Social Networking platforms.

I spent a lot of time on the internet surfing for things that were irrelevant but interesting. I made it a habit to check all my social accounts at least once a day. I was getting more and more interested in the online world. I was trying to understand the importance of these sites. I started researching about the background of all the sites I had opened accounts for. I found out that all those people who had created these sites have become billionaires.

I started wondering about the possibilities I had of making some money online. I researched about all the options for making money using the internet. I was surprised to find that there are countless ways to make money online. But still, I had my doubts. Do all these ways to make money really work?

I wanted to find out. With this curiosity, I decided to follow one of the methods that I had read on a blog. It was about how I could make money on Pinterest.

The first thing I did was creating a blog site. To make money through Pinterest I needed to have a product and then promote it. Since I didn’t have my own product, I decided to do Affiliate Marketing through Pinterest.

I had my account on Pinterest. After linking it to my blog, I made a few changes in the description and was ready to go. I promoted the products on Pinterest for a few days. After some days I realized that nothing much was happening, probably because I had very few followers. I figured out the options I had to increase followers. I realized that there are quite many things that can be done to gain followers. One of them includes buying followers. There are sites which offer you followers in exchange for a nominal fee. Having checked a few sites, I stumbled upon this site called “Pinterest on Fire”. I pretty much liked the reviews and decided to buy followers from “Pinterest on Fire”.

It didn’t take me long to find out that it was indeed a good decision I made. With an increase in the number of followers, I had the benefit of bringing out the product to a lot more people. My traffic on my blog skyrocketed and I started making sales.

This was my first experience as someone who is interested in online marketing. I have come a long way from where I began. I feel that with a better understanding it is possible for anyone to start earning a pretty good income online.
