    Hi there,

    I would like to know what are currently the most successful pinterest bots that you use?

    I have a niche and would like to expand it from IG to Pinterest. It is an "aesthetic" niche.

    Let me know what kind of tools you are using and what are your tips for a pinterest newbie.

    Is it possible to monetise via affiliate products directly on the pins?

    Or do you have to send people to a lander?

    What has been working best so far?

    Clickbank, CPAs, Amazon, Ebay affiliates, etc...

    Thanks a lot!

    sorry..the pinterest section is closed. kids are busy pumping up their instagram engagement groups. Will take 2 more years till they realize Pinterest is actually so much more profitable ;-)

    I can see pinterest being a great tool, since its very very heavy on pins that have mostly ref links / adverts on them. However from what ive expereinced there are a lot of bots on there. I have 50 accounts with ~150 average each. So I guess my network consists of about 7500

    ever since the smart feed, bots really don't matter a lot. Still can get results obviously (especially if your account is aged and has real targeted followers), manual is so much better. As of now, it takes me about 2 months to get a pin to go viral and then it is sending 50 to 100 referrals to my money site a day...forever (as far as I can tell).

    Can you be more specific on what you mean by it takes 2 months to get a pin to go viral? Are you just sending it to many group boards?

    hm...no.
    besides, without beyond excellent content, nothign goes viral - anywhere. so don't look for a shortcut. it doesnt exist.
