    Hi

    I'm considering starting a service here on BHW with Pinterest. Some background info would seem relevant. I have the following...

    1. 20 Pinterest Accounts
    2. 200,000 followers between all of them combined.

    So what kind of Pinterest service would you guys find valuable assuming you wanted one. I've come up with a few ideas I'm bouncing around...

    1. Repin X amount of images
    2. Repin X amount of images across X accounts
    3. Monthly repin service - X images on 1 account or across all accounts for diversity
    4. Since I'm good at getting followers, I could also sell accounts with REAL followers (people I've followed and they followed me back)

    Those are what I've come up with so far. Wondering if you guys could provide some feedback on this? New ideas if you have them? For those who help me out with a detailed response, if I find there is interest and end up launching this service I will be giving away some repin/pinterest freebies :)

    Please respond with

    a) What kind of service you would find most valuable?
    b) how much would you pay for that?

    Thanks for helping out BHW :)

    XH

    Repin pins/images seems like a great idea. But it has to be niche related you know what i mean? Like repin my health pin in your health board :p

    Repin on related niche, Pinterest IM marketers only need this. All of other must be selfie... So for example you can build a TIer of accs.

    Tier 1 accs: scope/reach up to 10.000 (20 pins, drip feed 5 days)
    Tier 2 accs: scope/reach up to 5.000 ( 20 repins drip feed 2 days)
    ---------------------------------------
    Other system may be to add the user to a big Board for example: join board with scope to 50.000 followers 5$/week.
    ---------------------------------------
    Im so tired, and going bed, but anyway i have more ideas but.... have to cook ideas while sleep. Im coming back asap.

    Edit: One idea more, if you have a big board maybe you can put in description: For beeing added to this board just follow hulk0 and then comment on pin...blablalah
    And offer targetered followers or cheap followers or some.

    I don't care about this. Since you have just a few accounts I'd better get 1000 repins spread over few photos from fiverr.
    I don't care about this too since most surely you don't have the followers in the niche I'm looking for and I'm not really into having my pins seen by uninterested followers.
    I don't see value in this hence I would not pay.
    Again, I would not pay for this, not really interested in accounts with random followers.

    The only thing that I would pay for when it comes to Pinterest are bulk accounts with profile photo and preferably aged.

    I think you can also provide bulk repins on accounts with followers ( doesn't matter if they are less than 100 ). for example : 1000 repins for $20 , 5000 repins for $100 ..

    I think I see what you mean. If I had 100 or so of the most popular boards on Pinterest on each account, I imagine I would be able to get you some degree of targeted pinning. I might not be able to pin your images to a "white shoes" board, but I think a shoes board or fashion board would be good. This level of targeting should be sufficient, no? Or would you expect laser laser targeted pinning? Also - wondering if you could throw out a random price you would find reasonable for a random amount of pins :)

    Thanks for the feedback. So basically you're suggestion boils down to offering different packages - baby, mini, medium, large etc - with different reaches. That's not a bad idea - I could also vary the number of pins in for those packages as they go up. Would you recommend this as a subscription or one time offer or both?

    Thanks for the feedback - after carefully reviewing your responses I don't think you're my target market :p

    I am still just doing research at the moment. If there is interest I will plan a launch.

    For those who help me out with a detailed response, if I find there is interest and end up launching this service I will be giving away some repin/pinterest freebies :)

    You should tell which niches you are in. For example, I want you to post an image/site with a recipe, and it won't have much of an effect if they are all fashion related followers.
    If you are in a specific niche then you can charge more than just saying "I have a lot of followers on Pinterest. Buy now."

    Make a shit load of new pinterest accounts and mature them for about a month using these accounts and then sell the new accounts at a very good rate.... Try to mature the accounts niche wise i.e, for food, fashion etc.... They will surely sell at a good price.

    Only creating bulk accounts with complete profile is a time consuming task on pinterest so most of ppl only buy bulk accounts. For all other things you can buy a bot. You can even buy a account creator but as most of account creator bots remains private you can hire someone to make one for you.

    There are lot of bulk account BST on forum if you can provide something cheaper then may be you will have good sales.

    So I should develop a bunch of the most popular niches on my accounts so when I repin for people, they will post in the relevant board? I'm thinking

    - recipes
    - fashion shoes/purses/dresses/
    - garden
    - travel

    What else?


    You're the second person suggesting bulk account creation. The problem I have with this is that people want bulk accounts at dirt cheap prices. I don't have a problem growing accounts... the making them I'm not so certain about.


    Point taken - creating accounts is the problem. This is because you need a ton of proxies and emails no? I was hoping to avoid this service and more to be an all around pinterest boosting service. Boost the reach of your accounts by 10x sort of thing.


    Any other ideas? Let's hear them. Reminder...

    Btw, I dont think that you will face hard time finding buyers for providing real followers (If you're really providing what u promise)

    Add beauty to your list (hair, nail, makeup, fragrances) It's a huge market and goes viral quick

    Of course they will be real followers. Any idiot can provide fake followers. I am not interested in providing those - the real followers is what I'm interested in bringing to the table. It's the only thing that actually provides value to customers. It will obviously be more expensive than fake followers, but I *hope* people could see the value in that.

    So you're saying I should be developing real accounts with different categories and you want beauty in there? :) what about pricing and services? Per repin? Monthly dripped pins? What would you be interested in?

    If your followers are real then the price should be something like $15 for 1000 untargeted and $20 for 1000 targeted followers. Not sure If people would be interested in buying repins service but as far as followers are concerned, it should work.

    I have been thinking about setting up a pinterest service myself and mat do when I get the time? I work in revearse to you. I build niche targted accounts with groups boards added and then hit these with software on vps to drive traffic. My idea was either renting out the accounts with vps access or providing a pinterest traffic service.

    Either way the only way I would go is with a monthly reocurring fee. You could build up followers (5000+) on niche targeted accounts, get the board invites and then sell? Or go down the traffic route.... say $50 per month for 5000 "real" niche targeted pinterest visitors.

    Loads more ideas but a bit busy at today to post more... plus as you know the best ideas you have to keep to yourself. ;) - Good Luck!

    Great to hear you're considering a Pinterest service xha44a!

    The fact you have 20 accounts with a combined following of 200,000 tells me you have built "authority" Pinterest profiles. These would lend themselves more to targeted marketing with great creative content to better engage your audience.

    First and foremost I would do some analysis on your followers and determine what niches they would be interested in, clearly if you have 200,000 woman interested in Arts/Crafts they're very unlikely to go for CPA offers on the latest Gadgets etc. Promoting the wrong content is likely going to limit the engagement (clicks, organic repins) and worse still you could loose your audience with unfollows.

    Next, I'd selectively offer/sell in "slots per week" for each of the niches you've identified and drip-feed repins over several days, one for each niche. e.g. "Weight loss / dieting", "Homewares", "Food/Drink", "Beauty", "Health/Lifestyle". Make sure the content you're promoting is quality, otherwise it will have a negative impact on your clients results, and could diminish the authority of your network.

    Following best practises like those described in this blog post are a good idea:

    http://socialnewsdaily.com/13950/even-kale-can-go-viral-on-pinterest-and-heres-how-infographic/

    I have been playing with Pinterest for about a year now and have gone the other way, by creating and automating ~1,000 accounts each with their own "persona" emulating how a real user behaves on Pinterest. Each "persona" was created with a set of interests e.g. one might be "Yoga, Vegan, Life drawing", another would be "Travel, Outdoor activities, Photography" which guides what they will search for, like and repin. They login a few times a week, generally around the same day-of-week and time-of-day, do a handful of activity (pin, repin, link, follow etc.) and then go back to sleep.

    Home decor also seems very popular. And I think that those are the most popular ones. Maybe also try beauty and health. ​
