    Hello, BHW members, this is my first journey thread so bare with me :) I've tried couple of methods that I found here in the forum. With some I had success, with some - not. I have some videos floating around about clickbank products and I'm getting some passive income from them. It's not much, but at least coming. I've decided to try Pinterest because it's new social network and it's growing fast - great source of traffic. It's quite easy to grow your account and you don't need much money to do it unlike Facebook and Twitter. I decided to start this thread to keep me motivated and I will not try other methods until I squeeze all the juice from this one.

    What is my plan?

    I'm not going to use any bots, everything will be done by myself. I'm planning to expand my account up to 20-30K followers and more, if I manage to succeed. With this amount of followers getting traffic wouldn't be a problem. I will set up 5-10 blogs, 5 for CPA offers and 5 for Adsense. Will start monetizing when I reach 3-4k followers, until then I will work on expanding my account and building the blogs.

    What methods I use?

    For start I've pinned 1000 images in 15 boards. I was paying attention to 5 of them and tried to make them look interesting. Then I went to repinly.com, founded top piners's followers and started following people with 150+ followers and 150+following. This means that they more likely to follow you back. Followed around 1000 people and got 40-50 followers from youlikehits so my profile don't look new, then waited few days until I got around 100 followers and started to invite people to the 5 boards I've developed. I've invited 150-200 people per board and wait until I get at least 10-20 contributors and then repeat. This is where I am now. My plan forward is to continue expanding my account and building the blogs. Blogs for CPA will have only pictures and offers. Adsense ones will have a lot of content because of the Adsense policies. I want my adsense account to not get banned. This method I've learned from another BHW member on this forum. This is his thread:

    What is my progress until now?

    I've set all 2 days ago and I got 200 followers for that time. It's time consuming method, but I think I'll get nice results with it. I will post my stats and progress everyday. If you need any help or have any questions, please post in the thread and I'll respond.

    It's a little bad day. I have 50 followers more, pinned some pins on my boards. I set one blog that I'm going to monetize with CPA later. It's good to have it ready though.

    IM IN THE womens fashion niche. traffic would need to click on the picture or link in the description to be brought to to the buy it page. i get tons of click through but barely any conversions for the amount of work i do. I sense that people use pinterest for ideas rather than a place to buy things even though i put a price tag on most of my pics.

    I'm going to monetize via CPA and Adsense. Will use some e-mail submit offers that give something for free. People love free stuff. I think that way I'll be able to get some money.

    I was busy yesterday to post update of my progress. I gained some good amount of followers from the big boards I was invited in. I'm not spamming them, usually 1-3 pins per day on every board is getting me between 15-40 repins depending of size of the board. Also I set up another blog which is really simple only pics and adsense on tumblr and pinned few pictures on my boards and received some earnings. They're not much but it's good sign that I'm getting progress.

    I've decided to do some following/unfollowing last few days and I managed to pass 1k followers. My next goal is 5k. Will continue with pinning on the big boards and with following/unfollowing.

    When you "Pin" is it a brand new pin or a repin?
