    I have the chance to buy a Pinterest board with 200,000 members, and an associated website.

    i was wondering, what is the best way to monetise this? Also, what would you think it would be worth? What is the maximum I should pay?

    thanks

    There are so many things that can affect the price. It's got 200k members, that's great but are they active? Is the board being spammed with random sh*t? How old is the website? What is the website like? etc.. Unless you plan on giving someone the site name/board url to check no one can tell how much you should pay.

    Perhaps look at the traffic on there site first? And make sure it is not a botted board they could be fake users?

    Yeah i got the email too. I used their service in the past and it wasnt anything impressive. Id suggest keep your money and just try to get into group boards.

    don't just look at the total number if most of those followers are fake or just people that don't interact it will be useless, you need to do a few test and see how much interaction you get from them first.

    You should ask them to pin something of yours in this board to evaluate. If you get traffic from it, then make your decision. Lately, at least for me, 50% or more of followers are just bots or other IMers who only want your follow-back. So a high number of follower stats without close inspection is deceiving.

    This.
    and if they give you any problems or reasons why they will not pin something of yours before your purchase, then its a bad sale.

    I agree. There are some niches, where I experienced a great deal of fake accounts/followers. Back then, I saw someone post a bitly URL on a 30k member board and it only had 2 visits in the past week, lol.

    Tell them you wanna first see what this is about.Get an invitation for serveral accounts.
    Upgrade your Accounts to business, pin serveral high quality images per Account.
    And then look at how many impressions/repins/clicks you got on your pins in difference to other boards.
    Now you can see if people still visit these boards and if you can bank on this.
    If you need help pm me.

    If you're using pinblaster, you could follow the followers of this board and then use the "fake follower" option.
    To get a feel for how many % of followers are fake.
