    Hi all, I just wanted to share a method I have used a lot to make anything from $20 - $100 a day for a few minutes work. I'm not sure if this method has been shared before if so I apologize. Also by the same token I want to apologies to anyone who has been doing this and feel that this is letting the cat out of the bag, I'm sure there is enough for everyone :)

    I'm new to the forum and wanted to share something instead of just taking. I know that $20 - $100 a day might not be a lot for some people but I'm sure to the majority of new users here it's rent, or some startup cash for inventory etc. Also the other part about this is that there are no costs involved, of course some sort of a budget from the earnings down the road might be a good idea and its tough in the beginning but it pays off.

    I'll lay out the method here so that if it's something you are already aware of you can skip reading the rest. The method involves Pinterest and group boards. I created some large group boards and also got invited to dozens of others in the same niche. Lets use jewelry and eCommerce/sales as an example. You could create a bunch of boards promoting handmade jewelry and also ask to join already established ones or likewise they could be shopping group boards for gifts etc. 9 out of 10 boards allow members to invite other members so find boards that allow you to invite others if they are not boards you made yourself.

    Once you have 10 or more large group boards on your profile you can start doing two things to earn money from them.

    1) Sell invites to these boards. If they are sales, eCommerce boards you can invite other small business owners to pin to the board. Explain that Pinterest is one of the top drivers of traffic online. Also mention how pins don't peak in traffic until they are around 4 months old, so they will get lots of traffic for months and months from pinning there.

    2) Sell pins. You can sell promotion to the same audience by telling them you will pin their items from their site or where they have them listed directly to these boards. Explain how the boards have thousands of followers and get literally hundreds of thousands of views each week. Again explain the longevity of pins and how they will be getting a good ROI using this method for a long time to come.

    To sell the invites and the pins you can make an account on Fiverr or similar micro job sites. Use good keywords to get the listings out there and share them in places that your demographic hang out. If its handmade jewelry or eCommerce try Etsy users. if its mlm, work from home stuff try posting to some groups on Facebook etc and on company pages so that all the distributors of that company see it. Say that if they are not using this method to generate sales and signups then their competitors are.

    This is one of many methods I use to generate a steady income each month. I would say I get about $2,000 - $2,500 a month on average from this method without doing much promotion at all. In fact now that it has been going for a while its a lot less time than I had to put in at the start. so granted it was not always that amount each month nor was it less time like it is now. I have also found some great clients doing this too for higher priced services and subscription packages. I might offer a social media management package or a reputation package etc. If they seem like they will be easy to work with I push other services to them.

    This method would be a great method for a noob to start off with to earn some cash to spend on apps, bots etc. There is no reason why someone could not scale this up and have a huge site offering invites to pages and earning 4 figures a day. I have priced it various ways via different accounts. Sometimes I offered 5 invites for $5 15 for $10 and 30 for $15, but I soon realized that Pinterest had put a limit on invites so I would hit blocks and be unable to send any more invites out. So I changed the prices to $5 for 1 invite $20 for 5 and $100 for 35 and I get people buying at every level. If they buy just one I direct them to my other service offering a pinning service so that they can pay me to do it instead of doing it themselves.

    I also set up the quick replies on Fiverr so that when an order comes in i am able to do it in a matter of minutes and mark it as complete right away with a standard message that I can populate in one click. I wake up and take about 10 minutes to do 3 or 4 orders and move on to the next thing on my list for the day. In terms of dollars per hour its in the hundreds which is not bad. If I could find a dozen things that paid me a few hundred dollars an hour I would be really happy lol.

    I know this is super simple and probably someone has already mentioned it, if so I apologize. If you feel you learned something from this please press the thumbs up thanks button. Thank you :)

    If you have any questions post them below and I will respond as soon as I can.

    My pleasure. I hope this idea gives others more ideas or they can tweak this method to work better for them.

    Is any of this automated? How hard is it to create "large boards"? Seems like that might be the hardest part for a newb.

    Good question. Nope not automated, I'm sure some people reading this will know of a method of automation they can insert into the method but as for me no it was done manually over time, but its a lot faster than you think, maybe only 30 - 60 minutes a day in the beginning as there is only so much you can do with various limits and block in place.

    I'm not going to lie I have a few resources that made this easier for me such as places I could promote the specific niches I cover to get customers. as well the same resources to advertise the fact that i have a board that others are welcome to pin on. If you go to a place these people hang out and make a post telling them they can join your board and pin as much as they like for free a lot of people will ask to join. At this point you can get their email address and the link to their profile. once you have the link follow them and then you can invite them to the board in question. Go to relevant groups on facebook and make posts about the boards there. or better still just join other boards instead of making your own.

    Do a search for whatever topic it is and click boards, once there scroll down looking for the group board symbol and ask to join it. If you follow someone you can send them a message within pinterest. Or go to a big group board and ask someone to add you in the comment of the pins.

    If you get on enough boards you can also post info-graphs leading back to your products, people love info-graphs and share the hell out of them so you will get a lot of organic traffic and shares as well as being able to promote an affiliate product on a group board to tens of thousands of followers and viewers. so many ways to monetize it.

    I get what you are saying about it being the hardest part but at the same time this is for someone with no cash and lots of time. this would be great for a young person or someone in a country where this amount of money would mean a lot.

    TIP: you will get a much better conversion if the language used in the post promoting it is well written, no one likes reading broken English, if its not your first language get someone to help you out with editing your post.

    Customer service is king, if you get a question or an order be polite and deal with it fast. don't be a cheap ass either, if you get a fussy customer or someone thinking they can rip you of and claim a refund after you invited them just give them the damn refund, its not worth the stress or the bad review, make them happy no matter what. Losing the income from one or two orders is nothing compared to people seeing negative feedback or you arguing with some turd in the feedback section. I know its hard especially when you know its not your fault or someone is being an idiot, but remember everyone can see what you write so be professional and don't get caught up in petty crap.

    Well to be honest this was just me sharing a method. I'm not here trying to tout anything. I would love to be able to send invites to everyone who asked here on BHW but the truth is that I have a limited amount of invites that I have to use to invite the clients with. It would also mean me putting the links to my accounts out there so that people could see the boards to ask for invites and I'm not sure if I want to do that right now. I'm totally here to answer any messages though and help people on their journey with this. google things like "list of group boards" pinterest group board list" go to the profiles of users who are members of large group boards and find others from there. People who are members of a group board are likely to be a member of others. If you see a group board for your niche, go to it and check out the profiles of other members and you will probably find other group boards on their profiles and so on.

    Thanks for this interesting share! So if I understand it properly you are actually inviting people to become a contributor of a group page, as opposed to just following them?

    am i missing something? so you join groups with alot of niche followers and then you sell invites/pins to small businesses right? what makes those business owners not just share directly to those boards skipping you?

    I think you just made a friend for life :) She is a colliecoy well that's what I call her, she is half wild Arizona coyote and half collie. The cleverest dog I have ever known but everyone says that about their dog. She is spoiled rotten and doesn't give a shit about what you tell her to do, she does what she wants ;)

    And yours?

    Well they have to be invited to get access to pin, you sell the invite to them, yes there will always be people that want to go around and try to get it for free. most people are happy to pay a few dollars if they think they are getting a good deal, which in all fairness they are. if they don't bother pinning after they pay for an invite its on them, if they pin every day they will get a huge ROI.

    But yes people will try and find out what the boards are first and go around you by asking to be invited. Just sell them the facts, it took me weeks to get invites to many of the boards, if they want to wait fine i will gladly share my profile with them.

    I get more clients that way for other services because I say hey if you cant afford this spend the time to do it yourself, the same as the service offering the pins, if they want to get invites to do it themselves they can, if they want me to do it for them i can. its all about finding the person that wants to pay and believe me there are so many people willing to pay $10 , $20 for a service they know will benefit their business.

    You don't necessarily have to make them and grow them yourself, you could join them all and not create one. In fact on one of my accounts I have 38 boards and only one of them I created.

    That said on one of the account I have 6 boards I created all around the same time. this was back in the day though at least 2 years ago when there were no invite limits. I was able to invite anyone that asked as long as we were following each other. The reason I was able to grow them so quick though was because I had resources in that specific niche to begin with. such as social media pages on Facebook as well as several forums on the marketplaces in question with tens of thousands of members. I would create a post inviting them to join if they wanted to post there and I would get hundreds of messages and reply's to the thread asking to be invited. It only took a few weeks to get them into the 4 figures. At that point hundreds of pins were being added each day by the members making the boards more and more appealing. and thus when i was not handing invites out for free people were willing to shell out a few dollars for an invite.

    It's WAY FASTER to get invited to other boards and go from there.

    Another tip I should add is if you are getting invited to other peoples boards do yourself a favor and don't use the account they invited. Use it to invite several other accounts that you can then use to invite others. Because you have no control over the people you invite, if they break the rules the owner of the board can see who invited them. If you are just inviting anyone at all and are not vetting them and making sure they will follow the rules of the board you could end up getting banned too. If they ban the account that added them at least you will still have the first one to invite more to the board so that you don't lose it.

    Be sensible ;)

    Yeah I am just inviting these people so that they can also pin to the group board. Many people will ask if they will get accepted as it is just an invite. well the invite is the acceptance, if someone gets an invite all they have to do is accept it to get instant access to pin. If they use the pin button on another site to create the pin it will ask what board they want to pin to.

    To find an invite you have to go to the speech bubble in the top right, click on inbox and then contact requests, the invites will be in there and one can simply accept or ignore. If you accept you have access to pin to the board.

    Really nice share bro, thumbs up for you.
    I've been looking into pinterest for a few weeks, it's an awesome underrated traffic source.
    I'll definitely give this a try with my own twists.

    My pleasure friend. I was really hoping to see someone say something like that. I have seen so many posts here on BHW and I have added my own twists and made those methods really work for me. So my hope is that people will see this and think of twists they can add with their own knowledge to help them grow it to whatever level helps them.
