    Is Pinterest a good channel to promote a fitness app for iPhone? Which's the best strategies to get a lot of downloads?

    I think that Pinterest is a great place to market your app since the majority of pinners use smartphones (at least according to my analytics).

    Just do what your competitors or other app makers are doing. Most likely it's creating a profile, making boards and groupboards that your target audience might like, ask to join established groupboards in your niche, follow users in your niche, etc. Lately, I've been seeing more and more promotions via private messages. And if you have a budget, go for promoted pins.

    If you have a decent number of followers, a 'promo exchange 'deal can be worked out with a users that have high influence...or multiple users that have same level of followers as you.

    I believe Instagram would be better targeted channel though for fitness.

    Take into consideration that pinterest has more women using it than men (couple of years ago 80/20 ratio).

    Health and fitness works very well on pinterest, one of the good methods is repinning popular fitness pins and directing them to a landing page

    You need to find one that can scrape the popular pins in the Health and fitness category, for example you scrape 100 pins but only pins that have at least 200 repins and at least 50 likes and also specify a keyword or else you will have unrelated pins

    Then you post these pins but with your link, the rest is up to you

    Thanks, I will take a look at other bots. And what do you think abou the new Private Message feature of Pinterest? There's a way to send mass invites to scraped users in the Health and Fitness category?

    Private Messages telling the users about the App and a link to download. Since it's a new feature, maybe none bot could make it, right?

    I dont know if there is a bot that can do that, you can contact the support of the different bot sellers and ask them if they have this feature
