I wanted to contribute something of value to this forum, so here is my piece of advice to everyone. I have been utilizing Pinterest for a few months now and have had great results. I had a steady stream of new real followers each day, and would have a few pins go to the front category page (evidenced by huge traffic swarms during times). After reading some other opinions, people recommended getting added to some group boards. For those of you unfamiliar with Pinterest, Group Boards are just like other boards, however, they tend to have a much higher follower base, and many tens of thousands of pins. These boards contain guest pinners who can pin anything to the board. It seemed like a win-win for me! I had access to about 250 group boards and pinned accordingly each day. The funny thing was. These group boards actually hurt me. Let me explain. Many of these group boards seem attractive, but honestly, the most a quality pin has been re-pined is 5-6 times. On my own board, I have seen 200-300 repins. Another point is that most of the followers on group boards are fake or inactive. I found this by doing a macro to follow/unfollow on a normal board (40% return follow rate) and then follow/unfollow a group board (2-5% return follow rate). Two more point to wrap up my case that group boards are a bad idea. - Spammers grow on Pinterest faster than minute rice can cook. What I mean is, spammers tend to spam the heck out of group boards. I can't tell you how many times I go to pin items, and I see 200 ads for fake Uggs or LV. - When a real follower visits your boards, and sees so many, they get scared, and move on. I like to keep 15-20 boards, as it shows you are a legit pinner, yet don't overwhelm them with options for boards. Whether you agree or disagree, this is my experience. To success in Pinterest Marketing, stay away from group boards.
