    I have a question, are people really making money off Pinterest? I am asking because I had read some threads where people are talking about healzer self promoting his pinbot by making fake accounts. One of the thread in IM Journeys is by a member who has a complete newbie badge (like me :p). He was posting that he was earning way upto $600+ in a day within a month and with only ONE account and he listed that he is using pinbot. And there are other threads also similar to the one listed above that are promoting pinbot and posting that they are earning very good money off Pinterest.

    All the threads that I had read were having very similar writing style. Like they were all posting same style images and the headings were same too. So I want to ask you that are you really making money on Pinterest? Or is it possible at all? How much you are making per day? Pinbot really helps?

    What a stupid question. Go read one of the many journey thread.
    Anything that has a community can be marketed.

    Yes you can make money on Pinterest. Will you make $600 a day in a month? Unlikely.

    Do your own testing and figure things out, it isn't easy and takes time and effort.

    Look for journey threads that are believable and aren't promoting any products or services.

    As a clickbank product vendor, I can confirm that some of my top affiliates (making more money then the figure you mention) are doing so through pinterest. So yes, you can definitely make good money from pinterest.

    A recent report stated that pinterest is actually more profitable than facebook for marketers.

    If you're interested, I had made a post with a step-by-step method on how to make money with pinterest + clickbank:

    Yes. It is possible. Don't expect to just hop on there and make $600/day. It will take a lot of time to figure out what works for you, but you can make some good money if you keep at it.

    Yes you can earn money on Pinterest.

    There are multiple ways you can monetize Pinterest (check the journey section for case studies, lots of good ones there).
    Here are some examples I can think of:
    1. Amazon/Clickbank/Any product
    2. Adsense
    3. CPA

    If you do decide to purchase a bot in the future, I recommend ANYTHING that supports multithreads and proxies.

    I have a lot of traffic from Pinterest, but all this traffic is useless because nobody from Pinterest buys a thing. Maybe I do something wrong.

    Good to know. :)

    I can't wait when pinterest opens its advertising platform to everyone. Pinterest is a goldmine since the demographic is mostly females and they generally spend more money than their counterparts.

    I know a few ppl who are making quite good money using pinterest. But its not that easy as ppl say, means you cant start making $100+ within a week or month.

    mancar487 thanks for the post provider. Just read through it now and writing some code to automate parts of the process. The return on Pinterest seems better because I find the most active users are female consumers who get sucked in quite easy.

    Don't think I can post links yet, but there are a bunch of great infographics which outline the user base.

    Yes but like you say nowhere near as easy as the faker threads make out. 3-4 months in for me and only just starting to make my first couple of dollars after making bots for all the important processes (most of the time was figuring out just what had to be automated ie how it all works and then figuring how to automate).

    I think there are quicker ways to the cash like spamming group boards but ive avoided that since I only hear of quick bannings with that method and am more interested in (semi) stable earnings.

    I used to sell a few products and would show the images of them with a link and i got some sales from the site, that was not a lot but it definitely can make money.
