    Hello everyone, here is my first Internet Marketing journey and I hope I'll learn a lot of things with it and also share my mistakes, strategies,etc. Let me introduce myself,
    I'm 17 years old, I moved to Canada one year ago and I decided to radically change my life. I started training 6days/week and dieting and I'm pretty happy with the results.
    I want to mention that I usually speak french so sorry for my mistakes :) I started IM in may 2014 but like a lot of us at the begining, I was just reading, not acting but it was not a loss of time. I learn things about CPA, Youtube,... but I didn't really like those methods until I found a PDF about Pinterest. I really like the method so I deciced to stuck with Pinterest. I created an account but I didn't work a lot during summer holidays.
    Now I'm really motivated, I bought healzer's PinBot, a proxy, a domain/hosting and I created my website.
    I'll try to update this journey a least 3/week but I can't promise because I have a lot of work at school.
    My Goals :
    My real goal is to create mobile games and earn decent money with that, start my company, and buy King,Supercell,Zynga :rolleyes: This is for the long term goal.
    First I have to buy me a mac and also graphics for my games, marketing, etc. so I need a bit of money. Also for my diet because chicken isn't that cheap ;)
    So I want to bank a least 1'000$ until 1st January for my mac and then continue IM for a stable income.
    My Strategy:

    So I direct people from pinterest to my website. This is the basic strategy. One buisness account pin from the website, like 3-5 pins with website URL, and with other accounts I repin this pin and try to make it seen by most people possible. I'm not sure now about the number so maybe I'll pin more, maybe less, we'll see. If you have advice, I'd be really nice from you to share :)
    Here is my schedule because I think you must be ORGANISED otherwise you'll loose a lot of time searching for the good proxy for this account or stuff like that. I also think that manual work worth it. Of course I'm not gonna follow people with hands but for repins etc I like to do it manually.
    So during the week-end, I work on my website, adding articles, products. I also buy proxies and create 4 accounts/proxy.
    During the week, I daily follow around 80-150 people and sometimes I unfollow. I also like 20-35 pins.
    About repinning. For the main account, I try do repin(20-30) daily but with others accounts I do it by round.
    I use 4 web browsers and I can connect 2 accounts by webbrowser so I can work with 8 accounts(2 differents IP). So day A I work with Proxy1 and Proxy2, I create two boards per account and repin at least 20 pins on each. Day B it's Proxy3 and Proxy4, Day C : 5-6,etc... I do this until account has around 15-20 boards and I stop creating boards after that and buy new proxies. This is only for the repin stuff, I follow/unfollow/like daily(take some day off)
    Some Stats :
    Followers : 1365
    Accounts : 8
    My following-back ratio : 10-35% (big percentage for the main account)

    Money :
    I have not started to promote my website because he's still "under construction". It'll be finish this week-end and I'll start to send traffic on monday :)

    To Do :
    -Finish the website. I will continue to add post, products,etc. but it need to be able to receive traffic on monday. ( I can't post url but you can check Nick Flame tutorial on building amazon affiliates websites)
    -Buy 2 proxies and make 8 accounts.

    Just one thing : Do someone know where I can get woman(20-45) profil pictures for my fake accounts? For free it's better :)
    So here we are let's start it :) If you have questions or advice don't hesitate. Also it's better if you post on the thread but you can also send me a PM.
    Have a nice day.

    Glad to see a Journey started from Pinterest after a long time.

    I too started one behind the curtains, but had to demolish since all my accounts got banned.

    Best of Luck with your Journey Hope you reach your Target soon enough.

    I guess I was using naked Urls instead of websites.
    also maybe Proxies I was using Instant Proxies they all have almost Similar subnets

    But I think main problem was Naked URLs only.

    Day 2 :

    Some stats:
    Followers : 1425
    Accounts : 8
    Ratio : /
    I take day off so I didn't followed anyone but I continue to have my principal account getting followers(+40 without following) so I'm pretty happy :)

    Money :
    Still earned nothing as I launch traffic tomorrow

    To do :
    Create 8 email/accounts with the 2 proxies I bought
    Start lauching some traffic on the website.

    Today I bought 2 proxies as you can read, but I couldn't work with them as I'm waiting my payment to be accepted by the provider. I added some content to my website and it only needs few modification before I can start show it to the world
    :cool:

    If someone knows where I can get profil pictures for fake account ?

    Have a nice day

    Go to Tumblr, Imgur, etc., get a pic of a MILF. Then crop. Good luck on your journey.

    Subscribed, because we're on the same boat. I'll be focusing on building my brand though, not worrying too much about traffic. Good luck to us! :)

    Day 4 :

    Some stats :
    Followers : 1505
    Accounts : 16(but I've not started following with 8 of them)
    Ratio: 4%-20%(a bit lower but I'm updating this at 2am New York time so maybe tomorrow I'll get more followback)

    Money :
    Nothing, I don't know if I get traffic either but I'm focusing on building my account. I have to organise myself in term of pinning.
    I read a lot about "How to make your pin viral" and stuff like that. I'm also trying to get accepted on group boards but that's not easy :(

    To Do :

    -Work on a daily with all of my accounts to grow slowly but surely :) I'm not going to buy more proxy until I see some cash. I think 16 accounts are enought to make a bit of cash if they're correctly used right?
    As I said I have to improve my organisation about pining original stuff. Also try to get accepted into group boards. I have to ajust some things on my website but it's pretty cool like that. Hope it'll convert :)
    Have a nice day

    Something funny hapenned, I just created an account so no boards, no followers/following, just a profile picture. I repinned something and I already got 5 repins, maybe I'll go viral :) I'd have add my website url

    Some Stats :

    Followers : 1622(+117)(12h later I've 1695(+73 while I was sleeping))
    Account : 16
    Ratio : 1%-30%

    Some of my account are a bit stuck with followers and I don't know why. Maybe they need more boards/pins. I'll try and let you know.

    Money :

    Still no money but I have not really started to promote my website. I'll really begin to do this on Monday but I had to change some stuff.

    Did/To Do :

    I worked manually on all of my accounts and created boards + do the repin. Now all of my accounts have at least 8 boards and they don't look spammy I think. I'll create some more boards until I reach +15 per account and stop. I'll simply repin/pin using Healzer's bot after that.
    I changed a bit my strategy about the regular accounts. I create 4-5 boards + add 20+pins on each for one account. After I switch to the other one and I do the 16 like that. So on monday all of my accounts will be ready. It take some time but that's okay. I try to spend less than 6 minutes per account so in 2hours maximum it's done. I do it while watching a movie or listening music.
    I have to add +10 spinned article from the web to my website. I also have to rewrite some reviews that are really bad :(

    Have a nice day

    Some Stats :

    Followers : 1730(+35)//I didn't follow people so that's ok
    Account : 16
    Ratio : /

    Money/Traffic :

    I got some traffic from Pakistan :p I start tomorrow to pin aggresively with my URL(not too much, I don't want to be banned)
    Today I tried what's work best for me and Healzer's bot is really great with is pin scrapping feature(unique and HQ images). I'm not trying to sell you anything but I find it really useful :)
    Like you can think no money for today. I'll do a big party for my first sale :)

    Did/To Do :

    I holidays are finished so I won't have much time to work. I'll only pin/repin/follow(all the traffic part) during the week and work on website(Add articles, products, etc) on the week-end. I'll try to update this journey at least 3 times a week but I can't promise.
    So this week, I'll see if I get some traffic and I hope to sell my first article :) I also got accepted in group boards. I pin 1-2 pin only, don't want to be removed.

    Have a nice day.Feel free to ask questions/advice. It looks like I'm talking to myself :)

    Thank you. I don't know if both goes well together, try and you'll see :)
    I have to find it on my computer and I'll send you the PM
    I think I'll stay focus with Pinterest. I changed a bit my plan so I don't want to go with other ways to get traffic because I don't think I'll stay a long time with Amazon Affiliate/Website Creation.

    I don't have time to do a clean update post, will edit in the next few days.
    Have a nice day

    It always depends on the start. If you grab your follower's attention with your first few posts (pictures in your case), they could also share or like your pics :)
