    All my pinning activity results in very little daily traffic, while my following and my DMs get me tons, I'm using followliker by the way.

    Should I just completely stick to following and DMs?

    Improve what works, but when working on traffic, never go with just one traffic stream. So I`d continue pinning :)

    1. A few hundred, just make sure it's not over 500 when you start out because then you have to start unfollowing in order to start following again.
    2. 25 - 30 seconds
    3. Direct Message.

    From what I've read, always stick to what works! Try to understand why it works and think of other ways that are similar.

    I would recommend using Pinbot!

    This way you can automate your entire account. Auto Pinning, Auto Repin, Auto Follow, Auto Like, Auto Messaging & Auto Unfollowing.

    I'd recommend Followliker, it gets regular updates, and the support is quick to respond.

    Pretty much as many as I can. Since it's set to message followers only once, it will only send a limited number of DMs a day since I don't get hundreds and hundreds of followers a day.

    hm...been trying to use it a bit. It's okay I guess if u r running mass accounts. Followback rate around 10-15 percent (manual is 20ish and higher quality).

    I tried pin... To be honest. Does not hold up to twit or IG... Yes you get insane amount of followers fast .. But they CTR on your LP is low..
    Twit / IG have way better ROI..

    I use Massplanner for Pinterest - does the job and I am used to their interface (since I use it for IG and FB as well).

    haha...that is soooo utterly wrong. The average click through rate on pinterest on a viral pin is around 3-2 Percent for me (based on impressions). For a non viral pin (meaning 1000 repins or less) I usually have around 5 Percent CTR. While the CTR on instagram will be a loooot less, it will probably be around the same on twitter on a very well targeted account. (tho 5 clicks on 1000 twitter impression is insane).

    That being said, you are looking at it the totally wrong way. Your CTR is utterly irrelevant. You will have to look at your absolute numbers and it is there where pinterest shines. Even with a small account you can easily get 10k to 20k daily impressions on your pins. Since the smart feed is actually ...uh well..smart..these are targeted impressions with targeted. By source Pinteret users spend an average of 2:35 minutes on my authority website...needless to say that conversion (which should be ur ulterior goal) is a lot better...
