    Hey guys, I'm currently building up my Pinterest profile and landing pages. I'm looking for some advice on where to invest a small money ($50 - $60) to fasten or help my journey to pinterest.

    I'm not looking for a huge income for now since I'm fairly new to this method, a simple ROI for a months work will make me happy. And I'm all for the experience.

    Also, for those who's also interested in trying Pinterest, may I suggest these two readings.

    Happy money day guys!

    Hi Herocute,

    What sort of sales funnel do you have in place for your offers. or are you not at that stage yet? I'd suggest avoiding any type of software investment and focusing on an intelligent investment in your process. Perhaps you could outline your strategy a little more or shoot me a private message if you're not comfortable with sharing it openly.

    P.S: Your post is a breath of fresh air, I fully expected a shallow plea for assistance with little to no content and you've instead published a post that actually warrants a helpful reply. Kudos to you for that.

    Are you doing everything on pinterest manually and with one or more accounts?, if so I'd suggest you invest those money in a tool to automate it and also on a few more accounts so you scale everything up from the start, that way you'll be safe in case one or more accounts get banned and also you have the chance of earning more.

    I'm not sure what you meant by sales funnels, if it's monetization, I'm thinking about Amazon + other affiliate programs related to my niche.

    What I have in mind is basically what I read. First slowly build up a Pinterest profile and gain some real followers to start things up, when the profile is flowing, I then plan to slowly promote my affiliates with other repins (from what I read, a safe bet would be around 80% of your pins are from others, and the remaining you can use to promote your own things).

    About the website I'm currently building, what I'm thinking is to create a some sort of an e-Commerce website where I "pretend" to sell a collection of things then link them to Amazon and other affiliates instead.

    I see, for now I think I can manually do things since I'm fairly new to Pinterest itself and enjoying around it. Things are quite slow tho, for 2 days I have about 200 pins on different boards that I created and followed 60 people, I gained 2 followers which I'm proud of.

    Lastly, I've been thinking of purchasing a gig on fiverr to promote my boards, thinking that maybe this can boost things up a little bit, some sort of stepping stone to get things flowing (would this be a good move?)

    I would love to hear some suggestions, if you don't mind! Thanks!

    Yes I have been using Pinterest manually on a single account. I figured that it's best for me to start on a single account and build it for a while since I have no prior experience in Pinterest. Lots of my time was spent on reading about Pinterest, checking up facts and user demographics so I can have an idea on what to promote in the near future.

    Regarding on the account being banned, I don't think I will get banned since I'm not spamming or doing anything against their TOS. I created a legit looking profile linked to Facebook and Twitter and have been doing things manually, well most of it.

    When the time comes, I'll probably try using Pinbot (I found it reading one of the articles I mentioned). I've already tested the software in it seems quite great.

    True, if you're doing everything manually there are less chances to get banner, there were a few people getting banned after joining larger boards in their niche lately, not sure what that is about, those might be automatic bans though so you can send a message and after a manual inspection they will probably re-instate the account.

    as for starting slow with one account that's good so you learn everything, though I'd suggest you do make some more accounts now even if you don't use them so they will age a little by the time you will be using them, aged accounts always look better :)

    Invest your money in a bot and proxies. Invest your time to figure out what works and what doesn't.

    If you work manually there's really no reason to invest in anything except the landing pages. IF you want to automate it then PinBlaster is the way to go :)

    I think you're going the right way. I'm also trying to create just one account with a lot of followers instead of joining group boards and getting bans for that. I use ninjapinner, its 29$ for a single acc license, so you may consider that. It will speed up your growth.
    Don't neglect other aspects, like commenting and liking, not just following.
    Stay away from group boards.
    When you reach 3K followers, start monetizing it and create another acc on a different proxy. That's my plan.

    It's going to be much harder for you to increase your follower count without having some sort of automation in your game plan. Look for pinbot or pinblaster these are probably the best ways to invest your money at this step.
