    Hi everyone!

    Not long time ago, I have started growing an Instagram empire, which I also posted a journey for, can be found HERE. Since then, I've been doing a lot of re-search and learning about social media, therefore I decided to expand to more networks, so I'll start a journey for each of them and post what I do everyday.

    What have I done so far?
    - Purchased Dedicated Server
    - Purchased private proxies
    - Purchased numbers (SIM cards)
    - Made e-mails
    - Purchased a bot

    Currently, I am doing a full re-search on niches and audience of Pinterest, once I determinate the best profitable niches, I'll start making the account.

    If you have any questions, feel free to ask. :)

    Very interested in this journey!

    When botting, what kind of settings will you be doing (following per day/unfollowing, pinning, commenting, etc)?

    Hello everyone! First of all, apologies to everyone for not updating my journey. I had a busy June with college, tons of exams and all that stuff. However, I'm back now and ready to roll.

    First of all, I've been reading a lot about Pinterest and how it works for the past few weeks and I managed to learn the basics. It should be fine for now I guess, as time goes I'll learn more stuff.

    I've created my first account with a private proxy and e-mail address. The account has only 2 boards currently, but I'll create a few more as soon as possible. I already started following on Pinterest and so far it's fine.

    My plans for the next days would be to create a website or two which I'll use on Pinterest as well create more accounts in various niches.

    Any tips or tricks are appreciated.

    Keep updating your journey, it's very interesting.

    How many proxies did you buy?
    How many accounts will you be using per proxy?
    What is your niche - with first account?
    What bot are you using?
    Did you verify your pinterest accounts by phone? My fresh account didn't ask for verification, but I have all my sim cards ready. :)

    1. I bought 10 proxies (private).
    2. I will be using 1 account per proxy for now.
    3. It's cars. I know it's not the best niche on Pinterest, but it's an account I had made from before, and my goal is to get in as many niches as possible.
    4. FollowLiker Pinterest.
    5. As far as I know, phone verification doesn't exist on Pinterest. I never got asked to type in any phones, nor I saw anything about phone in the settings while setting up my account's profile.

    I didn't know about phone verification... Then why do you need the sim cards?

    I thought Pinterest had phone verification, but fortunately they don't. It's fine, though. I have other use of the SIM cards anyway :)

    Today, I created one more account and learned a new thing about Pinterest. It appears that they have a follower:following ratio, which doesn't allow you to follow people until you get more followers. So, I'll spend some time unfollowing and start following again.

    I'm currently testing various methods for scraping users to see which one brings the highest follow-back rate. It might take a while to test this stuff :)

    I've created one more account and I keep following people on all the accounts. I hope to reach at least a few thousand followers by the end of this month, so I can try and promote my website(s).

    I've created yet another account, and I keep growing. It seems the follower to following ratio really sucks for new accounts, as I have to do unfollowing at the beginning, but it gets better as the follower count increases. So far, I am satisfied with the growth of my accounts.

    Made another account. Also figured out that finding good scraping 'settings' is kinda tricky on Pinterest. So, I'll keep experimenting.

    Current state of my accounts is pretty good if you ask me, I'm satisfied :)

    Nice job man! Acc 2 grows really fast.
    How do you manage your accs btw? From desktop or mobile? Do you use firefox with proxies to make and manage the different accounts?

    Yes, it grows really fast :)
    I manage my accounts, if manually via Desktop. And also I use my bot (FL).
    I use Mozilla Firefox with proxies to make the accounts. :)

    For some reason, my second and best account got suspended. I really don't know why though. I did 450 follows 2 days ago, 37 yesterday and today 600. I never pinned any website link outside Pinterest. All my pins were repinned from inside Pinterest and some pictures uploaded by myself, without linking to any website at all. So it can't be spam. I have sent them an e-mail, hopefully they'll reply to see what's going on. Otherwise, I'll switch the last account I created to the same niche as 2.
