    Just go to any pin and do as he/she says. just write a comment with their username and the @Symbol and hopefully you will get added after they look at your profile. I know what you mean though, sometimes they dont appear. I find that this happens usually when it's a common name. If there are a ton of users it will only show up so many. You could try and follow some of the links on their profile and see if you can find other contact info for them to make the request.

    What part is not working for you?

    Although I may have logged in and seen a question that does not mean I always have time to answer it right away. Not that I need to answer it in 24 hours but it had not even been that yet. I will endeavor to answer all the questions I can but it will at least be when I can and I may also wait for a few comments to build up so that it does not take all of my time answering questions whenever they come in. :)

    I was eager to join the board, as i didn't want the board message to change to "We are no longer accepting contributors to this board" :rolleyes:

    Personally I think its the reason most people fail. I do think that a lot of the new changes will weed out the people that are taking liberties and fucking it up for the rest of us.

    That's cool I was only razzing you.

    I have no idea, I have not used this method. I either send the person a comment or find another way to contact them.

    William, I will upgrade my Tailwind account soon. I have 1 (main) account on my name and 1 another pinterest account connected with tailwind, but it's fake name. Can I pay with credit card on both account from the same credit card? Do you have experiences with that ? Thanks.

    I have no idea, you would have to contact their support team

    It's an easy way to get your account reported for spam and removed. I dont do it but that does not mean that others are not having success with it.

    Hey,

    do you recommend to let the account look like an account from an "old" lady?

    Thanks in advance

    I tried, send them tens of messages, and waiting for invites. Will update. But I think OP this mentioned there before. If you send them e-mail, I recommend using Gmail and change your gmail profile picture to the same old lady. But make it look real.

    A thousand times yes. Maybe not as far as an old lady but something wholesome and normal and not slutty. It's a dead giveaway if the account avatar looks like a porn star. Also it does depend on what you are promoting. If an old lady does not fit the demographic then change it to something else but always steer clear of having an avatar of cleavage or some porn star with her legs open. The demographic of pinterest is middle aged women so having an avatar like that would mostly be barking up the wrong tree. Just make the accounts look normal as if they are used by someone to get ideas. Have some personal boards on your profile that are not group boards named things like "ideas for the back yard" "ideas for a camping trip" "how i want my wedding to look" "things I want to try and cook" etc etc.

    I have covered several ways to go about getting invited to pinterest boards in the pinterest threads i started so I would suggest reading through those and trying a few of them out.

    I really wonder if they see message I sent. I heard that If they dont follow me, they cant see that message. Is it right? Or they just have tons of messages so they arent giving fu.k?

    That can be solution - send message to group board contributors with small number of followers and offer them exchange. They will not ignore my message and some will answer.

    My pleasure, for future reference you can press the thanks button on each post rather than posting thank you :)

    Maybe you have to be following them. I think at least one of you has to be following the other in order to send let alone see the message. They could also just not give a fuck. I know I used to get hundreds of requests every day so in the end I just started to ignore them as I did not have the time. at least now inviting people to boards is easier so it takes a lot less time. Some will answer and some wont.

    Hello there ,

    I found a 1 account with 50+k followers , 10k pins and 50 boards. when I click on one of his pin , redirects me to a dead/expired domain .

    The question is :

    If I will register that expired domain and redirect it to my money site , I will have all his traffic ? ! ?

    Yes, but of course you will have no control of the Pinterest account....but the backlinks are still gold!.

    As I was so excited, I couldn't wait until someone will reply so I bought the domain and link it to my money site.

    I'm looking at my Google analytics and I see no trafic is coming from that site :(

    Maybe because he didn't post nothing in the last 2 years ?!?

    Start repinning his pins....then you will start getting his traffic, old accounts with expired domains is an opportunity that most Pinterest marketers never even consider
