That guy with the gasmask as the avatar says 'followers don't mean shit'. Well they can't mean nothing at all cos I get about 5-6 a day. but that is crap. I tried doing some pins in the boards I've been invited to but made no difference. I seem to get invited to TONS of boards, more than I want. I get several invites a day often to boards that are not related to my niche. I am invited to quite a few etsy boards though which have nearly 20k followers. I pinned to those yesterday and no change. What else should I do? Are followers alone ok? if I just keep running my bot till I get up to 20k or so? Its taking WAY longer than the method that guy posted suggested. He was saying he got 20k in a matter of days. Its taken me nearly 2 weeks to get 1.4k. My follower/following ratio isn't bad either from what other's have stated- I calculated it to be 13% and another guy was saying his range between 1% and 20%.
