My Goal: 100.000 followers on Pinterest at the end of 2016 How do I want to achieve it: I will run one purely manually curated account that will ever so often repin from my existing authority site. I will continue this account through organic means only. 5 other accounts in the same niche with slight variations; I will grow these accounts to 1.000 followers and 1.000+ pins manually doing quality pining and mass-follow. Once this is done I will gradually swap to automation. I will use those 5 accounts to inflate repin/likes/comments on my authority account I want to try to grow a group board using those accounts (once they are aged enough) ultimately I want to tenfold my traffic from pinterest at the end of 2016 Monetization: As of now monetization is not my focus. I got a full-time job that pays more than just my bills. The niche of my money site is my hobby. If money can be made - sure; but right now I want to amass knowledge and fame. haha. Still I do have a plan in place It will be a mix of adsense and affiliate on my money site that is currently running. Will have to write some more reviews and optimize ad integration. I am currently only making about $2 per day. If the other accounts lift off, I might consider creating small niche sites around them What I have so far: Small Authority site (current: Avg. daily impressions on Pinterest: 30.095) with high quality content 1 Account with highly engaged users and a lot of viral pins pointing to my authority site (49 Boards | 2.700 Pins | 610 Followers| 285 Following) 1 aged (12 months) account I recently reactivated; linked to an old Facebook profile (10 Boards | 280 Pins | 284 Followers | 948 Following) 1 new account I just created yesterday; linked to twitter and facebook profile; gonna built up twitter a bit as a side project (7 Boards | 145 Pins | 57 Followers | 657 Following) What I need to do Create 3 more accounts and fill them up with some juice Create 5 accounts as backup, just in case something should happen Get some automation tool (not sure), and VPS/Proxy Get a scheduling tool to handle all accounts Questions Is it dangerous to run those 3 accounts on my own machine/ip atm? How will pinterest react to pushing my main account (will test it within the test accounts) Not sure if I want to start the follow/unfollow game with my main account; it's doing considerably well, given the effort I put into it.
