    2 months ago I got 50-200 followers accounts per day, but recently I got only 30 followers everyday.
    What's the reason? Does pinterest have any updates?

    Well, they changed the way new followers are reported to a user. So follow/unfollow really is not viable anymore. It's better to currate good bords and get organic followers.

    i've seen a couple of ppl using DM strategies..but it obviously runs the risk of being reported quite easily.

    Pinterest isn't just about followers, you can get good results just posting to good boards

    You mean group boards, right?

    Can you please tell me how to find good boards and join them? Thank you so much!

    There are also plenty of Facebook groups that you could join, people post their group boards on there and you ask to get added.

    50-200 a day? I never managed to pass the 50 mark (in total - NOT per day) even after 2 months of posting and following more than 1000 people interested in my niche. I deleted the unfollowers and have added new several times but the gain was minimal.

    I have thousands of images posted and also post to several major related group boards daily. And I don't mean the Fiverr kind of boards which are completely fake.

    Getting followers on Pinterest sounds like a joke.

    My two big main accounts gain a steady 40-70 followers a day *shrug*. I am not auto-following on them anymore. But at the end of the day, these followers don't matter all that much if your don't have good viral pins ;-)

    Yes, when more than 10000 followers, the account will automatically grow, but it is something is better than nothing.

    @buyerforcc1 How good was the quality of Pins and profile? Do you have many boards? There are more variations. If you're getting 50 followers in 2 months, you're doing something wrong for sure.

    Hi,

    Does having lots of boards matter? I'm new on Pinterest and haven't found a effective method to build followers.

    I've created 7 boards and add pins/repins to them daily. I also do the follow/unfollow thing, but I barely get followers. (I followed about 1000 people but got only 17 followers)

    Is there any good way to build Pinterest Follower these day? Do I need a bot to follow/unfollow and add lots of pins? Do I need to manage multiple accounts?

    Thank you.

    Hello mate.

    It's not always about quantity of boards but more about the quality. You need to focus on ONE niche per account. I would set up 2 boards around my niche and around 4-5 boards that focus on personal interests and other stuff. What do i meIn by "other stuff" Well these boards would be something like "My funny pictures 2017" "My favourite food" " Cute photos!" This type of thing.

    Remember, never use multiple niches per account. You want to appear to be knowledgeable in one subject (ie weight loss) Appearing to be knowledgeable in one subject increases trust and again makes you look genuine. Your profile will not look appealing to anyone if they see all these different boards with different subjects.

    Basically, what I'm trying to say is, you need to come across as genuine and human as possible. If you come across as a walking advertiser, you'll never gain Followers. Also, it's not always about "you" on Pinterest and you should never come across that way or people will not like you. But if you want people to Follow you, it's crucial that you optimise your profile to make it look as humanely as possible and to appear knowledgeable in ONE subject.

    I've seen so many Pinterest profiles with the same mistake of 2 boards focusing on their niche but no other boards with appealing content.

    I hope this helps.

    Tony.

    the follow button on pinterest web is missing. anyone notice this? We need to open each profile to follow. I thnk this is also the reason why followback ratio is significantly lower

    I am looking at a profile with about 40 boards within their niche, hundreds of pins and 95% of the pins are from THEIR website linking to their posts. It's a blog type business and their profile is not a persona style, it's a business style. Their name is their blog brand.

    So they have 100k+ followers of their account. And multiple hundreds of thousands of followers of their boards. Let me repeat - in their boards they have only their own pins leading to their own website.

    They have only one board where they pin/repin other people's pins.

    This makes me thinking that repinning stuff from other people, and create human-like profile is not that necessary. As long as you provide a killer quality content with a killer quality pins.

    Thank you for your suggestion. I've done exactly what you said, but It's still very hard to get followers. I think I'm not following/unfollowing enough because I'm doing it manually. Maybe I should buy a bot?

    I think in that case they spent money on Pinterest's paid promotion, and/or they get lots of followers from their website.

    I've yet to hit 1000 followers on any of my accounts, barely even get 10 new followers a month...maybe others are having more luck?

    How many boards do you have on your profile? How many people are you following per day? How good is the quality of your pins?

    Tony.

    I probably wouldn't bother with a bot unless it was completely automated. Remember we can only follow 150 people per hour. If you can find software that can automatically do this, then great! I've not seen anything like this yet, so if you do find anything, let me know!

    Thanks.
