    Hello Everyone,

    After lurking on the boards for a few months now, I have finally decided to take action.

    The Plan
    I will be working with two different methods.
    1. Niche Authority website - Hosted on a VPS with domain name.
      1. Focused on high quality, unique content
      2. Monetized with Adsense
      3. Using SEO techniques to drive traffic.
    2. Niche Curator Blog - Hosted via blogger without a domain name. Will be a subdomain of blogger.
      1. Content will be taken from other sites.
      2. Monetized with Adsense
      3. Pintrest will be used to drive traffic

    Day 1
    I had a little extra cash and have decided to outsource my niche authority blog to a seller here on BHW. I don't have enough posts to link to a URL yet, you can see it in my post history however. I purchased the package a couple weeks ago and progress is already being made on a great keyword with lowish competition.

    I created a Pintrest account today, created 5 private boards, and repinned a total of 299 pins spread amongst each board. While writing this, I picked up my first follower!

    Tomorrow
    I will be repinning another 300 - 400 pins. Once I hit 800 pins, I will begin asking to join some group boards.

    Financials
    Out Of Pocket: $175 (SIte outsource and domain purchase)
    Profit: $0
    Total: -$175

    Please feel free to provide any input which may be helpful for my journey!

    hmm.. $1k a month is quite achievable if you work on it daily with passion. Best of luck.

    I am only using a single account and doing it all by hand for now. I am willing to change my methods but am trying to create a legitimate looking Pintrest account.

    Day 2

    Methods:
    Pintrest
    I created 3 more boards, repinned 200 more pins, and followed 80 people. I picked up two more followers today!

    Niche Blog
    The site is starting to come together and already has content on it.I am waiting for the site to be finished before working on SEO.

    Tomorrow
    I will be doing the same thing that I did today. Repinning, following, and creating boards. I should be at 1000 pins by Friday and will then begin joining community boards.

    One advice though, have a Plan B for monetization just incase Adsense doesn't like your traffic for whatever reason.

    Have a product you can promote for affiliate commission, etc.

    Thanks for the advice! Luckily both of the methods I am using are able to use multiple monetization methods! I do worry about having affiliate links on my niche blog however. I have seen a few cases where that actually hurts your ranking on Google.

    Haha, we seem to be at an impasse. We both have less than the required amount of posts to allow PMs. Feel free to message me on my Journey for now! I am learning like many others, anything you ask could be helpful to others as well.

    If you use SEO for driving traffic, mainly focus content. Content is king! Make a keyword researching to find keywords with high traffic and low competition.

    Good luck with your Journey

    Pinterest needs passion + intelligence
    You need to find a solid strategy then find a way to automate that strategy = $$$

    I would like to reach my goal as quickly as possible but I have no set time frame. I'm in it until I make it.
