    Find few/lot of active accounts that have around 5k+/- followers and scrape them... After 1 year in pintrest i found that the best way to follow users on pintrest (in hope that they will follow you back) is to follow ppl who like and comment on pins that are no older than 1-2 months. And the worst thing is to follow them by keyword. They both work but when you follow ppl by keywords you also will follow lots of junk accounts... Following someones users is somewhere in the middle so i hope this helps you :)

    I'm still new to the follow/unfollow strategy but for now I chose to follow the followers of large accounts from my niche (usually 15k+ followers) that also follow a lot of people so I know they also raised their accounts using the same method. This way I know I'm following people that tend to follow back. Tried it with board followers and those that pinned popular pins for a short while but the follow back rate was horrible (I'll probably try again later when my account grows more). Either of these follow sources may not get you the best quality followers but hey......there is strength in numbers.

    Getting real niche-targeted followers is very difficult. For that you'd have to pick accounts that pin content similar to yours and have a high number of followers (50k+) but follow only a few themselves. This means the followers they got are real, interested users not follow-backs. Sadly, this also means very few of those people will follow you back and your account will grow slowly. Hope this helps

    best way is finding people with a lot of followers in your niche then adding them to the list in massplanner. The keyword follower is crap turn that off.

    Then manually follow the people that follow follow you or dig deeper down into the levels of followers.

    I just search for boards on my niche and put mass planner to follow their followers. And yes, keyword follower is kinda bad.

    yup that's another way. The prob with massplanner is limited accounts though. good for using on master accounts but beyond that no bueno.
