    Currently I have about 8 Pinterest accounts with profile pictures with a total of 4,500 followers and I'm getting about 500 followers daily. I just posted about 5 pins to around 3,000 followers and I only got 3 visits. I have a funny picture site and my goal is 150 visits/day could anyone give me tips on how to drive more traffic from pinterest?

    I'm using a bot to repin and invite people to boards but besides that everything is done manually(commenting, liking, new boards, login, pictures, etc...)

    the reason people probably are not visiting your blog/site is maybe due links

    do you have a link in the description and on the image itself (not watermark, but clickable image link) ?

    Give them an incentive to visit your site. Maybe say something like - "visit abc.com for more hilarious pictures!".

    Ok traffic is becoming stable! Now should I focus on my 8 accounts or should I buy a bot to manage more accounts for me?

    You need a bot to pin, repin, create boards, comment etc. There is money to be made on pinterest.

    I would figure out the strategy that works manually, then you can automate it knowing that it will be effective

    Yeah I agree with george, once you have a strategy that works manually you can then buy something to automate it. Does anyone know of any free bots that are effective?
