    I haven't spend a single cent on this method, because I don't have money to invest. I'm a teenager, I'm only 15 years old and I'm from Poland.
    I started developing my pinterest account a month ago, right now it looks 100% legit, it has 6K followers, my goal is to reach 10K targeted followers.
    I have created a blog on the blogger platform, I'm not a pro in developing blogs/websites, so it doesn't look really professional.
    As my niche I have picked "money making methods and strategies", I think that people always search for ways to make some extra cash.
    Especially when they don't need to get out of their house and they can do it at their own pace. I pin popular pins related to my niche daily about 10-15 pins. I do get about 10 repins per pin. I don't want my account to look spammy, that's why I don't pin more than that amount.
    So far my traffic isn't great, I have about 20 views from yesterday to my blog. ;/ What can I improve? I have dedicated so much time to reach that amount of followers, and I don't know why I don't get more repins. I belong to about 14 boards, which have at least 1K followers.:eek::eek::eek:

    Updates:
    Day 1
    I have changed the niche to food (food recipes). I have made a blog on the blogger platform. I have developed it with my total beginner skills (added the advertisements with html codes), and I copied ten recipes and pictures of them, but I have provided the sources of them. After that I have followed numerous people on pinterest which interests were related to my niche. Later on I have pinned the ten recipes from my blog to pinterest, so far I didn't get any repins, but we will see later on. I got 50+ views on my blog so far, which isn't so bad considering that it's new (it literally has about three-four hours, lol). I will do my best to drive the most traffic to it, and hope I can get some conversions from the advertisements. I will post tomorrow to tell you guys about the progress.

    I dont think that is the right niche for pineterest. You would make much more with a recipe/diy/home decor site and just puts ads on it either from adsense and if you dont have that the popads

    ^^This! In fact, I'd probably say that the make money niche on a whole isn't worth going for atm, especially for the newbies. The competition seems to be extremely high and most of the regular Internet users know that such products are a scam.

    if you want get traffic and $$ from pintrest i think you should change the niche, you can work with the niche of IM in facebook, twitter, google+ bit in pinterest i don't think that u have made the right choice.

    Thank you for your insight. I have changed my business name to "Supreme Food Recipes", and I'm trying to follow people that have food related interests right now. Like I have said earlier I want to have around 10K followers by the end of October. I have also made another blog on the blogger platform relating to the food niche. I won't get accepted to adsense, so I decided to go with it's alternative Revenue Hits, and I have already put a few advertisments. Later on if I see some traffic with time I might decide to sell some recipe e-books on my blog.

    You can make good money in the food/recipe niche. Move to an even more specific niche and get targeted followers if you want to make even more money.

    I've tried several niches and food related has been the most lucrative.

    If you want to stay with make money niche, then join up with some group boards. Target those where members could use extra money such as vacations, home improvements, newest fashion, etc. You should also make your own boards, preferably in niches that inspire people for extra cash.

    Food niche is very big in Pinterest. It can be tough to compete with big sites. But you can make your own little corner by creating food-related group boards.

    TLDR - group boards, whether yours or someone else's, help a lot with Pinterest traffic.

    I have made four pages on my blogspot related to weight loss recipes, diabetic recipes, low-fat desserts recipes and vegetarian recipes.
    I have about 30 pageviews already and I have created the blog an hour ago, the main problem is that most of the people are from Poland.
    And only about 2-3 people are from the United States, how could I change that? Ehh. ;/

    I think give it more than an hour to see where you get most of your clicks from. Not sure what time it is in Poland right now, but on the East coast in the US is only 3pm, traffic won't really trickle in until 7-10pm on a weekday.

    My traffic comes from pinterest, all of it. It's nearly 9pm right now in Poland, now I understand why the traffic is mainly from Poland.
    Thanks!

    Not sure about pinterest, but money making niche is really a difficult one, many people don't even waste their time on it because it's really saturated and there are many fake and scams, at least on instagram.
    Anyways, keep working at it and try new methods if one doesn't work out
    Goodluck

    Are such pictures for pins accurate?

    Day 2
    Is anybody even reading this? :/ It's morning in Poland, and I have checked my overnight stats.
    I'm not doing bad on revenue hits, as for yesterday results. I will share the screenshot I took with you guys.

    That has actually amazed me in some way and gave me a whole lot of motivation. I know that I didn't earn anything, but I might earn something today, and show you the results tomorrow. :D So my today tasks are pretty simple. I am going to access my main pinterest account the one with 6K followers , (although I'm thinking to create a different account to keep the main one safe and sound, so it doesn't get banned from pinterest because of spamming). I might do that account the next day because today I'm quite busy. So, as for today I am going to follow the people interested in my niche (food). I am going to create a few new boards (2-3) that will relate to food and repin some already existing popular pins. Later I will update my blog, copy ten new recipes and images (of course I will provide the sources too), after that I will pin those ten recipes to my new boards, and I'm going to see how much traffic I will get the next day. Wish me luck, guys! ♥

    Hey! I'm interested. And will be following. Don't get discouraged that fast. :)

    So PPD with pinterest? Didn't see a lot of these. Are you sure that's a way to go? And what are you locking exactly? Books or what? Have you considered adsense?

    What can be improved? Get some proxies and create more accounts. From what I've found accounts made using facebook (sign up with facebook) tend to last longer. That might help a bit.

    Commenting on related blogger blogs is a neat and quick way to get some more free traffic. If you decide to try it I would suggest applying principles from meathead's method (found here: http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/making-money/359445-easy-100-day-perfect-noobs.html )

    Best of luck! It's time to see another successful journey around here!

    Oh, it's nice to see somebody interested in my journey. :) Like I have written before I have changed the plan a little bit.
    I'm not going with the money making niche, instead of that I'm going with the food (recipes) niche, that drives more traffic.
    I have created a blog, and added two ads from revenuehits. I have posted a screenshot above of my yesterday results.
