    I've had some success with Pinterest traffic to another one of my sites so I decided to try and sell a CB product to see how it works out. Getting traffic from Pinterest has gotten harder since it hit the scene but it is still very doable to get a quality amount of traffic from countries that pay.

    WHAT I HAVE:

    1400 pinterest accounts
    PinPioneer
    HMA VPN
    simple landing page for CB product
    tumblr picture scraper (available free here on BHW)

    WHAT I WILL DO:

    1. Setup 1 main account with a niche name, niche profile picture, and niche specific landing page (blog) as the verified website at the top. I will make 5 niche boards and fill them with pictures that I scrape from tumblr blogs with my niche using PinPioneer because I find that those pictures tend to be bigger and better for the most part.

    2. I will use Pin Pioneer to scrape those posts on my main account and repin 10-15 at a time on each of my other 1400 pinterest accounts. While they are repinning I will have those 1400 accounts randomly LIKE the pins as well. I'll have my VPN rotating IPs every 5 minutes during this time and will keep the standard 5-10 seconds between pins and likes.

    3. Keep adding new quality niche pictures every so often and repeat the process of repinning and liking with my other accounts. At this point the traffic should start building and I will try and tweak the landing page for conversions and click-through rates to the actual product page.

    I'm expecting this to probably send me quite a bit of traffic but I'm just curious as to how this traffic will convert with a simple yet quality landing page for a CB product. I hope to get to the point where I'm making a couple of sales a day just from Pinterest traffic. You never know if you don't try. Anyways, I hope to get to my goal of $100 a day by August when I go to Medical school. Wish me luck! Let me know if you guys have any questions. This is my first time doing a journey and it's a pretty easy one really.

    Not much to report yet. Have PinPioneer repinning and liking all night. Will put some new pins on my main account today. Not much traffic yet but I'm confident it will come eventually.

    So you get a new IP every 5 minutes, but during these 5 minutes, how many accounts will PinPionner log to ?
    Don't you risk a massive ban there ?
    Or maybe you can set the thing to a limited number of account to use each 5 minutes ?

    I don't know if I'm clear ?

    Goodluck anyways.

    In those 5 minutes it probably goes through around 7-8 accounts. From my experience I haven't had any trouble with mass banning from this. They haven't gotten as crazy protective as FB just quite yet lol

    Thanks for the quick reply. Yes I guess 7-8 accounts isn't THAT much from 1 IP.
    So basically costs for setting up your campain are around 150$ for accounts, 40$ for pinpionner and 12/month for HMA VPS + some time and a great LP.
    Even if you make only a few sales that could be easily profitable.

    Hope it goes well.

    Yeah, that sounds about right for the costs. It's all stuff that I had anyway for other ventures so I just decided to put it to use for this journey. Thanks for your interest. Even if the landing page doesn't convert I might just put adsense on it and make it into a niche blog if I get enough traffic to it but the LP isn't converting. There's lots of options! That's what's fun about IM :)

    Logging into accounts is not like creating accounts. They aren't going to ban accounts because 7 people use a shared ip, people really over think this.

    Thanks. Good luck with your authority accounts. Basically I'm trying to make a niche specific authority account too so I don't think we are doing things too differently. :)

    Just checked the LP and I've gotten about 40 visitors. I'm going to put Adsense on the LP because it is sort of a blog designed landing page. That should bring in a little revenue while I still determine whether pinterest traffic will convert good for CB products. Will update again tomorrow night.

    I don't think that you are going to get an accurate testing of whether pinterest traffic converts with Adsense there. Some of your potential buyers are going to be clicking away to other people's websites and buying from them.

    I would give it more than 40 visitors before adding Adsense.

    Just my 2 pennies though :p

    Thanks for the input. You make a valid point. I guess I was just thinking about it from a just see some revenue coming in perspective as opposed to a CB conversion mainly perspective. I get ahead of myself sometimes. Haha you've convinced me to hold off on the Adsense until I get at least a few more thousand hits or so.

    Just going to try it with pinterest for now. I've worked extensively with FB with CPA but I just want to focus on Pinterest for now. Thanks for the suggestion though.

    Actually since this method is rather easy I'm going to use mass video blaster to blast out some YT videos related to my niche as well. Should see even more traffic coming in! Woohoo!

    TOTAL: 121 pageviews yesterday. No sales

    Play with this pinterest content locker a bit. I've found that referral traffic from real pinterest accounts converts 100% better than traffic from click throughs on random bot accounts. It works better due to the fact that these pinners already have established relationships and trust with there followers so it automatically gives more legitimacy to the offer when compared to a random click through to a click bank landing page.

    In the message I put something like "repin this if you truly care about stopping obesity in america" then lock the page till the repin action is complete, immediately redirect to offer after pin. This will increase your traffic and conversions.

    Another thing you can try is converting your landing pages to collecting email opt-ins rather than sending them straight to the offer. That will give you multiple chances to market to them rather than a 1 off click.
