    What am I aiming for?
    I am aiming for at least $50 a day.

    What have I done so far?

    Day 1(yesterday):
    I followed around 300 people in my niche, I received around 30 followers.
    Created 7 boards with items relating to my niche.
    Created a free Weebly site relating to my niche.
    Changed all pins to go to that site.

    Day 2:
    Created 2 new boards.
    Have followed around 150 people so far, I plan to follow around 400-500 today.I have received around 15 followers as of right now.
    A couple of my followers have actually followed a couple of my boards!!


    My boards consist of a variety of niches actually.

    Why am I creating this journey?
    I am creating it as a motivation to finally make some sales on amazon!

    Thanks for reading.

    Btw, I am not using any bots or anything(or don't plan to), it is much safer to do it manually,in my honest opinion.

    I've actually got a couple of expensive items in one of my niches,wouldn't it be nice if I actually sold one? :)

    Day 3:
    I ended up with 162 followers yesterday(all organic and niche related), and at least 5 of my boards being followed.
    Also,several of my items were repinned, so hopefully that's a good sign.
    I also received around 24 clicks on my affiliate links, but no sales yet,unfortunately.
    Today I have created 2 new boards and have followed around 300 people so far.

    Update: my boards are being followed like crazy, hopefully that means sales are coming!!

    Also, just wondering, if I do make a sale, does the amount of money I've made show up as soon as the stats update, or when the item ships?

    Hey man, will be the first to say good luck with your method.
    Running a few similar myself using custom bot's and some featured here on the forum, but agree if you can do it manual and get it working then why not stick to this and see it grow, but don't be afraid to find ways to save time as ultimately this is what you want to be doing. If you get some sales then look back and think of ways in which that can be duplicated and made quicker/easier.

    Regarding your boards, good work! Sales will come in time just be sure you are targeting quality and dont just follow anybody always be selective, you have to filter out the ones who will like your items but move on then the ones who actually are looking to purchase. This may be the key to your first sale.

    Another area to look into is Group Boards, create a board around you niche for example if you were selling 'Mens Socks' create a board something like 'Cool Printed Mens Socks' and invite pinners that have shown interest in your niche. This will result in free content for you and the pinners following seeing the board also and ultimately growing your authority in the niche.

    Keep updating!
