    Hello everyone,
    I'm a member here at BHW since 2008 but I wasn't an active forum member, just browsing through what you guys are writing.
    Most of my income comes from coding custom solutions for WordPress for clients from freelance websites. I've been doing this since 2006 and it's great.
    I am not a designer. As for IM, I have several projects going on but nothing Pinterest + Adsense so far.
    A few weeks ago I decided to try this out and see how it goes.
    I created 1 account and managed to get to 10 USD/day in my best day. A few days ago I decided to rinse and repeat and go ALL IN with this.

    My setup for this project:

    A. Monetization:

    2 Adsense accounts - 1 for the image base websites with shady copyright issues (scrapped images, etc) and one for content websites. I can register more if I ever get in trouble, by using LLCs.

    B. Hosting
    1 VPS at 40 USD/month
    Amazon S3 setup for everything
    3 hosting accounts at 5USD each in 3 different countries for IP spread.

    C. Websites
    5 websites (.com domains - 2 existing but not promoted and 3 registered for the project) where I use Pin Grabber + Pin Blaster + Rss Feeds (various tactics/day)
    3 websites (.com domains - 1 existing and 2 registered yesterday) with original outsourced content on expensive keywords
    2 blogspot blogs so far.

    D. Software
    Pin Blaster, from BHW
    iMacros for Firefox
    Firefox profiles, 1 for each account, on proxy, with Profile Switcher addon

    E. Pinterest
    1 large account, at 3000 followers, on 1 home IP
    2 smaller accounts at ~500 followers each on another home IP
    10 new accounts at ~100 followers each on proxies available here on BHW

    Now let's talk strategy..
    I am only using the large account to post my own pins to group boards (repin from my boards).
    I am growing the other 12 accounts, will pin my own articles later on, keeping a 10% ratio at all times, on all accounts.

    And the money..
    Today: 2 USD
    Yesterday: 7 USD
    2 days ago: 7 USD
    Remember, this is only with one account.

    Also, I had one account banned in the learning process.

    I will answer all questions whenever and if I can, I might go "offline" for days.

    Wish me luck!

    Good luck. Your strategy looks good.

    I am interested to know which broad niche(s) you are targeting.

    hameem: actually I will go ALL IN. I will probably hit ALL the categories on Pinterest. Not specific niches since I won't be doing CPA but rather the winning "broad" niches: recipes, fitness, etc.
    When I say ALL niches I mean I will grab pics from all niches and post them in image galleries that mimic pinterest (have the same categories) or make specific websites for some categories, where the writers have something to talk about.

    Lookin good :)

    How many pins do you post per day with the large account and in how many group boards ? :)

    Also , do the new accounts get ghosted ?

    Also, how long did you work on your main account to get the followers and how ? Just by being active or by following a lot of people ? :)

    About 15 pins from all sites/blogs in total on 10 group boards. I used iMacros for the large account and I started with Pin Blaster on the other 12. I am following around 200 people per day with each account.

    Today revenue: 4.7 EUR, 20 minutes to go until day change. my Adsense revenue is displayed in euros. Posted only 5 pins of my own to about 10 group boards with 1 account, the large one. I play it safe, pinned 5 of my own pins from 5 different sites, out of 160+ in total for this account. The other accounts are growing and I got invited to some nice group boards.

    It's not too often seeing a thread from a since 2008 member . Can you do more introduce yourself how did you make money since then and re-write your main post so that more people can understand what you do and follow able.

    Thank you all for the kind words.
    Donkey Kong: I already said what needs to be said. I am a member since 2008 but only a silent reader of the treasures you guys published here.
    As for income, here's what I said above: coding Wordpress stuff for various clients across the world. I've built a relationship with a dozen of clients. I also get a big chunk from local businesses that need someone to create and manage their websites. The "manage" part is the trick, like a subscription system. A cheap subscription but it's 90% passive income.
    That being said, my income is off topic on this thread.

    I don't get it. He actually begins with introducing himself and info on how he makes his money. You have managed miss all that and yet asking him to do the same things again? I'm just a little confused...

    This is sure to be an interesting journey, I was going to start a Pinterest + Adsense "attempt" myself, I'll be following your journey first. Do you have any tips for someone just starting with Pinterest?
