    actually i got invitation to different boards by top pinners and these boards do have some serious followers,
    Right now i have total of 300k unique followers on different boards and they really do drive me some massive traffic,
    but haven't yet monetized them....

    step 1: fill your pinterest profile with cool content, usually i go to repinly find top pinners go to their boards make similar board and then repin repin repin. i actually repinned about 1000 pins making my profile look non spammy and pinterest lover..

    step 2: follow people, i usually opened top pinners their followers and followed people having more than 200 pins or followers
    i actually followed more than 1000 people and you might know that you can follow about 100 in one day on one acc from a same ip

    step 3: Start inviting people to your boards... Must invite at least 1000 people, and you must know that you can invite only those whom you have followed... Invite them to some interesting boards related to travel clothing, kids etc, add contributors to atleast 5 boards

    step 4: Sit back and see people outsourcing your work, you will get bunch of followers daily... but that is not the deal..
    Once you have made them contributor you have actually shared your authority and most of them do the same in return, just start accepting contributor invites and do not spam or they will kick you out!!

    Update:
    I have been experimenting on these 300k followers, got 1000+ views from few pins in 24hrs
    Was using amazon, 60+ clicks one conversion...
    So amazon is not option for pinterest,,,
    I think cpa will do well..
    Any thing related to clothing , jewelry got much attention..
    So cpa related to apparel, jewelry and expecially beauty, skin care can make some $$..

    Nice thread. But man what a hell of a job to repin those 1000 pins, took me quite some time but I managed it. Now I'm following other people, that cap sucks tho.

    But in step 3 you say that I need to invite people to my boards, but I can't find such an option anywhere.

    the only problem I see with what your doing - is you become so invested in the account that it seems weird to say monetizing it would be harder ??? With Accounts you don't care about you just get aggressive and try to make what you can and move on.

    I'd be interested in talking more with you about this (outsourcing) but you gotta remember that I am about making money not winning any awards for nicest accounts LOL.

    I'm at day 5 now and I'm following 414 people (skipped one day because of hangover :) and I have around 100 people following me now, but it's increasing pretty fast. Invited lots of people to pin on my boards, it's a lot of work but I'm sure when you do it manually you can filter it way better than with bots etc. I'll keep going, hope to get a lot of followers and then I'm going to see how I can monitize it optimal. I'm throwing out some CB and Amazon pictures once in a while, got a few hops and clicks but no converts yet.

    I would be interested in outsourcing this kind of a thing. How much would you charge for outsourcing and garnering around 100k followers?

    For some reason I see a major increase in people who are following me right now, you might noticed that I had around 100 followers 1 hour ago and now I have around 200. I have no idea from where it's coming but I'm investigating it :p

    Pinterest seems like a great "new" source of traffic. Would be intrested in hearing how your CPA conversions pan out. Keep us posted. Cheers.

    You want to target products for women or enhancements for brain and body for people in general. Those sales do great, or you can just say fuck all and do YouTube tutorials for beauty and makeup for your followers.

    I'd say one thing, outsourching this aint easy. It's very time consuming, don't expect someone to do it for a fiverr price. For me alone I'm spending at least 3 hours a day on pinterest now. I can do it for you, but it's gonna cost you 100's.

    This is a method where bot's can't come, so if you want to outsource this whole proces be prepared to pay big time.

    Go to your personal page where all your boards are and then click edit, here you'll see an option to invite other people to your board
