    Hi Guys!
    Since, Dec 2018, I was contemplating to start a journey of Pinterest as I was growing an account.
    So now, here I am to pen it down before you.

    Aim:
    1) To grow Pinterest in 2 months
    2) To start getting sales in 2 months (affiliate marketing)
    3) To get guidance from experienced gentlemen here.
    4) To provide you an insight of what it looks like

    Before beginning, I would like to tell you what I have observed in Pinterest till now.

    1) Pinterest account Growth depends on how you handle Pins, Repins, keywords, Boards, Group Boards, and Following.
    2) In Pinterest, you can't pin one thing and link it to something else. It will get easily traced and taken down.
    3) At start, you gotta warm up the account at least 2 weeks before joining any big group Boards or involving in any major thing.
    4) When growing an account back in December, I have repinned many pins as compared to pinning my own pins. In this one month period, I saw a rapid increase in monthly viewers - from 0 to 218k
    5) In this period, I have joined big group Boards and used to pin-repin on those. This helped me to increase my viewers rapidly.
    6) At the same time , I was observing an account which rarely repinned. 95% pins and 5% repins. It was constantly on 63k monthly viewers.
    7) Continuing like that, it is now at 300k+ monthly viewers along with sales.
    8) Repinning a pin in around 8+ boards (in a single session of activity i.e. back to back) may get your account suspended.

    Okay, likewise there will be many such Do's and Don'ts on the go.

    So, lets have a look on my current situation.

    2 months old Pinterest account
    7.5k monthly viewers
    2.5k followers
    4.7k following
    19 group Boards
    2 my group Boards
    Total 45 boards
    Total Pins - 600+

    All the above stats are merely a result of casually spending time on Pinterest (nothing serious involvement needed)

    But from today, I have set some small targets to complete on a daily basis. It will include the following:
    No. of Pins to design:
    No. of Pins to do:
    No. of repins to do:
    No. of Messages to do (for group boards):
    Follow:
    Unfollow:
    Blog post:

    I will update it daily.
    Let's see how it goes.

    1)No. of pins and repins to do - pins =20 repins = 81

    2)No. of people to message - 0 (block)l

    3)No. of pins to design - 30

    4)Make 2000 words content for website - made an article of around1000 words

    5)No.of people to follow - around 100

    6) Unfollow will be done once a week - 0

    Something that I observed with influencers on Pinterest is that they have Group Boards of their own more than others group Boards.

    Looks like you got a solid plan. I have made plenty of sales with clickbank and pinterest but I find the traffic from pinterest to be extremely low converting. Good luck though!

    March 17th

    1)No. of pins and repins - 81
    Pins- 15
    Repins- 66

    2)No. of people to message to join group boards - 1 (hit the block thereafter)

    I have messaged 6 people on 15th back to back, hence Hit the block

    3)No. of pins designed - 30

    4)Make 2000 words content for blog - 800 words

    5) followed - 120

    6)Unfollowed - 0

    So, my monthly viewers count was already going down and still goin down.
    But if I continued doing pins and repins , it will definitely start moving up in few days.

    Besides this, I have found that,
    Pinning your pins on the group boards of others don't have much effect as compared to pinning your pins to your group board having other influencers as contributors.

    If you have a group Board where only you and an influencer are pinnners, will do much good. Well I haven't tried it but have observed many people doing that.
    I am aiming to try the same.

    Well, your traffic will surely increase if you are using others group boards and just repinning lots of stuff. (I have done that myself before, but the problem is you don't get the clicks concentrated on your pins, though monthly viewers rapidly increase)

    Also, your old pins should be repinned from time to time.

    I have seen the same. Extremely low converting Pinterest sales even when your account have around 7k followers and 300+ monthly viewers.

    But on the other hand, also seen an account, consitacon with pinning since 6 months and now getting good conversions and sales. It grew very slowly but now it's getting good sales!

    And well my plan is just to make massive actions!

    18th March:


    1)No. of pins and repins - 120
    Repins: 62
    Pins: 17
    From Instagram: 5
    From Google: 20
    Repinned old pins:16

    2)No. of people messaged to join group boards - still not able to send messages to new people or invite anyone to Join my board

    3)No. of pins designed - 30

    4)Make 2000 words content for blog - 300 words

    5) followed - 361

    6) Unfollowed - 0

    Finally, along with the impressions, my monthly viewers and monthly engaged has gone up.
    Monthly viewers increased by 1k
    (It was decreasing before)

    Clicks will take time

    I keep checking which Board is giving good impressions and clicks to my pins.

    It is not necessary that all the group Boards will work good for you.

    New task:
    1)Have to use other accounts/Social Media to approach people.
    2) Convince influencers to repin my pins

    Good luck on your journey, I've one simple question regarding account warm up.. how long you kept on repinning others pins until you got enough monthly viewers and started created your own pins?

    thanks

    I am enjoying seeing the updates, however as a friendly reminder you may want to use the multi quote feature, 5 posts in a row on the 18th could be considered post count inflation. just use the quote feature and you can put them all in one post in the future. Great updates though, thanks for keeping us all updated.
