    Hello guys,

    I read a lot about Pinterest these days so I decided to go mainstream and jump on the train to start my own Pinterest Journey.
    I am from germany and studying at at university at the moment so I have a lot of time :p

    My goal is to hit something like $50 / day to have some passive income to invest in bigger projects!
    In the past I had some experience in PPD and amazon niche sites. I also used to try CPA offers but failed :p

    In my opinion Pinterest and all the other big social media sites are a nice way to get some really good traffic. The only problem is how to convert this traffic efficiently.

    This little (I don't want to call it a real journey) "journey" is to help everyone who is interested in the same market and to get some help from more experienced guys :)

    What I've done so far:
    - Got some experience with Pinterest (tested it a few days with a simple account and got like 10 followers per day)
    - Bought 10 private USA proxies for 7$
    - Bought 80 USA full profil (bio and picture) Pinterest accounts
    - Chose 8 Pinterest accounts as "main" Tier 1 accounts
    - Created some mainstream boards to all of them (You know what I mean: Fashion, Hair and so on :p)

    What I am planning to do:
    - Get to $50 / day!
    - ...

    - Build a semi authority homepage
    - Use Adsense, Amazon and CPA offers to make money on it
    - Maybe sell ads on this homepage

    So now its time to start but before I can do this I need some questions answered :)
    My first question is if its okay to post to the same site with all those 8 Tier 1 accounts or should I post to different articles on the site with each account?
    Next question is if I should repin some pins without adding my site a few days? I also want to post more articles > pictures to my site so I will mostly repin with my accounts and not actually post REAL pins of my site.
    Also I need to know if its okay to post like 50 repins/day/account and use everytime the same pin at all accounts or if I should scrape like (8 * 50 = 400 ) 400 pins to repin 50 per day per account?

    I hope you can help me with some advice and experience you already have and I try to help you with the experience I (hopefully) gain during this thread!
    I am also planning to build some nice community boards so maybe you want to join in future?! ;-)

    So anyway this OP is long enough and I am happy looking forward on a nice thread and a lot of tips shared here!
    Thank you!

    I have some experience with pinterest so my advice to you is that boost up all your account with fake followers say 200 (from AMF). Then mature them for about 2 weeks by repinning original other real pins. Try not to spam at the first two weeks. Now start following 50 - 100 people per account. you will get about 20 follow back for sure. If it is possible then add real people to your boards. The more people join your boards the more followers you will get.

    I have 15 accounts because of lack of proxies and working with them for about a month now. Here are the followers count. Have a look http://prntscr.com/353hgy

    I hope this helps.

    So for now I plan to follow ~ 90 Niche relevant users with all accounts per day (is it ok to follow the same 90 people with all the accounts?), like and repin 50 different niche related pins per account per day and defollow 1 time per week. I also won't change the original pin link this week so that those repins look very natural!
    So feel free to comment if someone has some good tips for me :)

    If you site has tons of image to pin.. Then you can pin as much as you want and even pin the same images on all account, BUT only if you have different followers, if the same then don't bother, unless you pin on different time.. Suggestion, try to schedule your pins at different time, that way more people will see your pins.

    If your going to just use other images and link it to your site with no relevant connection to the image then you will just have your account suspended and pinning to niche board that has no connection to the image.. Best way is follow pintesest TOS and follow board rules.. DO NOT SPAM..

    I only have 4 -5 accounts now with average of 6k followers each and GROWING.. Each are handled by real people and no useless bot and easier to manage than having tons of accounts.. The only disadvantage with few accounts is your will run out of things to pin from your site unless you update it often.. Maybe I should offer a pinning service.. LOL

    How to get real followers? Just follow as much as you can per account.. And don't bother buying fake followers, it never helps and you just wasted your money.. I can create a pinterest account and get 1k followers after a week - just by following and repinning.

    Group boards are great but you have to constantly pin in them.. Best way is have your own board and grow your followers.. Always put your most important board on top, that way it get notice more..

    BUYING, US pinterest account is useless.. All my account are made using 2 ISP..

    AS FOR YOUR QUESTION:
    Better follow different people from different account that way you target more people..

    So when I start to create my authority site this week is it okay to post from those 8 accounts like 50 pins /day to a relevant page on my site? I also want to add that I only do repins! I dont have own pins cause my website will have more written content than pictures!

    yes, but if you dont have much followers those pins will not bring traffic.. i usually hold of my pins till i have around 2k followers (it only takes a week or 2).. Following is not limited by account but IP..

    then make sure your images are relevant to your post.. Most of pins come from my site post to keep account safe..

    So I will follow ~ 90-100 people per account and per day or should I go for more? I have a private proxie for each account!

    My site will be for example about shoes and I then link all my shoe pins to it. (Bags, Fashion idk yet)

    I don't know how many are we allowed to follow since i just follow as much as I can till i get tired or when pinterest warns me.

    Just be careful of changing links, some might flag your images and suspend you.

    Hey OP I am also into pinterest. What ever I am gonna tell is based on my own experience.

    I always start a new account like this:
    1. Create atleast 8 to ten boards
    2. Fill them with atleast 20 - 30 related pins
    3. Start following people, commenting etc.

    For following I would go like this:

    I follow around 1000 people each day with one account. 300 follows in 1st cycle then after a few hours 300 again then after a few hours 300 again then after a few hours 100. If you try to follow more than 300 a cycle Pinterest would ask to stop. I have never faced any trouble doing that. I use a imacro script to mass follow and before starting mass follow thing you must have some boards and that too with some pins as described in step 1,2. This makes your account look more natural.

    As far as mass repinning is concerned, I have repinned 100 pins with one url without a stop. Then after waiting for 5 hours approx repinned a little more. So you learn when you play with these limits. My new account is only 2 weeks old and has 3000 followers and 2000 pins. I am following 9300 people though. :)

    Does anyone have a means to streamline the pinning process? I currently use pinblaster just to follow people on my "real" account and really wish I could set a script to repin everything onto all my niche-related group boards

    UPDATE 01.04.2014

    Accounts Followers
    8 124
    I follow like 50 niche related users per accounts and day and like,repin 50 niche related pins per account per day :)

    Started like 2 days ago so I think today is a good day for officially "starting" my journey!

    I will do this for like 1-2 weeks till now to build some "quality" accounts with no outgoing links to my homepage.
    After this time I will start to repin the same amount but change the link to my homepage to get some traffic!
    I will use Chitika, Amazon and CPA offers on my site to make some money. I also will try to build up an email list.

    Do you have some tips for working with pinterest? Please talk to me here so everyone can learn :)

    I don't think it matters if you follow niche related users because they doesn't care. Only the user with 10k+ accounts care about the niche. If you follows them they follows you back. Try to follow the users of accounts which have equal followers following ratio. They follows back for sure.

    Don't change all the links to your home page. Pinterest will figure out soon and there is much chances of ghosting or even suspension. My tips is that you pin two times a day,

    Morning - Good/others pins.
    Evening - Your site pins.

    Try it. ​It might help.

    Thank you! Good tips :)

    So what amount would you think is okay? In the morning 50 good and in the evening 50 with my homepage or better 25/25 ?
    Also I would like to know if it's okay to send them allways to the main URL of my blog or should I send them always to the newst article? Or maybe I mask it everyday with a different bit.ly link?

    best regards,
    Soleil

    Yup don't send them directly. That will flag your account. Since your accounts are new so 25 is good for now.

    i don't read through the whole thread,but i believe the whole point of no matter what tactics you are using in internet marketing nowdays is to get traffic.
    if you can't get people see your pins or repins,all you work is meanless no matter how many accounts or pins you create one day.

    the limit to follow is 200 follows/hr/ip
    since you are using proxies for each account that wont create an issues to you.

    and yes with pinning let the accounts do like and comment on the niche related pins as if you will polish others they will come and polish you back too.

    That is not true. I follow 1000 users a day at an interval of 300 users per 2 hours and then 100. Pinterest tells me to cool down but hasn't suspended me till now.

    Maybe it is useful if I change the bit.ly link everyday oder can I use my blogspot.com link?
