    There is no answer to your question as it depends on a lot of factors. I'm certain some pinterest marketers could make that much with 1/10th the amount of followers. As with most things, you must experiment with your monetization and methodology and then optimize and scale the best performing tactic. If you're not making anything with 6k followers, I'd say growing your followers is the least of your problems.

    You can make money with 0 followers... has nothing to with them.
    As for Aqibarif74 suggesting buying followers.. No. Why buy fake followers, how do you plan to make money out of them?
    To make money on Pinterest you need to be apart of big community boards, that's where your traffic will come from.

    You can make plenty money with only 100 followers or you can make no money with 100,000 followers.
    It's the kind of follower, that you need to spend time attracting.

    I did not even try to earn money yet because I am just focusing on growing my account.

    Time spent on pinterest is a more important factor than number of followers. Since a ton of spammers and people looking for a quick buck without effort (read:IM forum readers) are spamming the shit out of pinterest (because of all the threads about pinterest making people believe its easy), making any money now requires semi-legit methods and a lot of time invested.

    There is no specific nos. of followers needed to earn......point is how many times your pins are being shared. Start with some quality pins & see the impact.Join some group boards......and never buy followers.

    You should start forming and implementing some kind of monetization plan now. You need to know what works so you can best focus your efforts. If you fail to focus on monetization now, you'll regret it later.

    i say you should have at least 5k before you start monetizing.
    so you should be ok to start blasting with 6k.

    It all depends on how you want to make money. Adsense? Clickbank?

    Post unique and likeable content and you will gain followers. Or you can use a social exchange network and get followers, repins, etc. to spread your influence. I recommend AddMeFast.

    But you could always buy followers and repins. 1k for $10 is extortion. You can find the same thing for 10% of the cost from SeoClerks.

    I'm not sure about how well your niche is working out, but 6k followers should easily be enough to make that money. Are you able to post in group boards? When I created my Pinterest accounts, I tried to only share good stuff on all my boards by repinning popular pins (high repin/like rates) to my own board WITHOUT changing the links and stuff (to earn trust).

    Getting added a lot after some weeks and being invited to several niche related group boards I can use later on.

    I guess that is the trick. Earn real users trust, get into popular boards and use them (but don't spam!) properly. When you manage to do that, 10$ a day should be very easy to achieve.


    Btw. When you have multiple accounts, you can invite your own accounts to your boards and make them group boards (you can post more pins/day into one board without getting banned then by using different accounts to post into the board). Add other users slowly and at some point you'll profit of them as well.

    Acting against ToS and doing something illegal is really not the same thing. The only illegal thing on BHW I see is the share section where copyright can be an issue (which is a legal matter... but I don't see how this can be called black hat since it is just sharing stuff, not a 'method' of SEO).

    I'd advise checking out what other top pinners in the health niche are pinning and what their pins lead back to. You'll definitely get some ideas. You need to be a contributor on large community boards and your pins need to lead to something that can make you money, experiment and see what works. It may be a mailing list, ads, digital download, etc.

    It is just your approach, i used to make big with 0 followers
    You have to work out things to rank your pins
    The real money is in ranking pins for your keywords

    Just do research by searching your keyword in pinterest, learn and implement
