Hi,

First of all, you may want to check if these sites are good traffic sources for your niche. No matter how popular a social media site is, still, there are certain niches that are not compatible with the site's traffic/audience. You need to check on that.

Also, since Pinterest is graphic-based, you should use really good pictures to get traffic.

I'm familiar with StumbleUpon before but I have not visited or used the site (in my marketing) for a long time now so I do not know if this site is still a good source for marketing.

I would suggest also that you try other social media sites like Facebook or Instagram and see how well you do there.

Of course, it also helps if you will read several marketing blogs that provide tips and steps on how you properly market the site on a particular social media platform. Each social media platform requires specific steps. You may do some research for this.

I don't have any experience with Pinterest, but I've used StumbleUpon ads for something non-affiliate-marketing related before. Even after I stopped paying for ads (I think I spent a total of $20), I was getting hits. If you tailor the information really well and play around with the ad settings, you might get solid results. If your niche is catered towards Australians around the age of 30-40 who might be interested in Technology and Gadgets and own Android devices, you would set your budget, set your desired demographics, and see the traffic trickle. They even show you how many people landed on your site for free (so organically through StumbleUpon instead of with your ad). By the end, I had more "free" visitors than paid.

BUT like I said, I've never used it for affiliate marketing and have no idea how effective it would be. Like maryt said, it'll probably depend on your niche and the audience. I don't know if you can set the audience when you submit your page or site for free and if you can't, it might take some time for the StumbleUpon to learn who likes your site and who doesn't. If you can't or you're impatient like I am, you can try playing around with the ads and see what works.

Subscribe to other boards, add content regularly (don't be greedy to add poor visual content), mark if you tried pins, add new pins to your collections, leave comments and be active for your subscribers.

I think for Pinterest it might also be good to learn from the accounts that are having a lot of engagement, don't just go follow and comment at random, try to see who is really active and try to learn from the way they engage with their community.

Traffic is about being active! learn what people want to see

I have been a Pinterest member for a few years. The key is pinning and repinning (sharing) quality images sized for Pinterest (735 pixels x adjusted to height) with relevant titles and descriptions.
