Have you heard about Pinterest yet? I’ve given away some invites to my subscribers a few weeks ago. So now is the time to dig deeper into it

What is Pinterest?
Pinterest is a place where you can pin your interests. You can create boards and pin images to them to share them with your followers. That is the simple way to put it.
The two main things on Pinterest are boards and pins. Imagine it as having a cork board where you can pin images of your birthday party Here’s how one of my Pinterest account looks like:
How to use Pinterest To Generate Free Traffic For Yourself?
Here’s how to kill 2 birds with 1 stone when it comes to Pinterest and making money, and how I automate a lot of it.
I’m just going to jump right into it, and if you have heard of this site before but haven’t tried it out you’re missing out and don’t let that put you off from reading the rest of what I have to say.
At the end of the day, Pinterest is still a social site. People pin stuff they like while surfing the web and they can also repin pins someone already put up over there. I put it off a long time ago just because I didn’t think it was a viable option for internet marketing. People are on the site for social reasons… they do not have the intention to buy. How wrong was I! I tried it recently and got so much traffic it was crazy. Also, after only a couple of days of use, my first Pinterest account is exploding with followers.
So here’s what I do, plain and simple.
- Create a Pinterest account.
- Then, create your board and upload a pin (i.e. a picture). Name your board according to the niche you are in to make it relevant and easy for people to find.
- Find images related to your niche via Google images or other means, and download them. I prefer using royalty-free images (you can google for them).
- Start pinning your images onto Pinterest board. You can either put your link in the comment, or after pinning several images go to Pinterest and edit the link in the image. This way, people can be linked from Pinterest to your site when they click on your link or your image.
- Let the traffic and money roll in.
That’s it. It’s so simple and so effective. Just give it a try for 1 week and you’ll see what I mean. Oh, and be sure to make your links bit’ly or something else that keeps statistics of the clicks so you can see what I’m talking about.
Here’s what I do to get more followers and traffic.
Explode Your Followers With Pinterest
Find someone that looks real that has a pretty even amount of followers and the people they are following. Then follow who they are following. The limit is about 200/day
Like 20-50 pins/day
Repin 20-40 pins/day
Comment on pins (with call-to-action for people to visit your boards) 30-50 pins/day
Now, do you see how simple this is? But do you also see how much time you would need to do this everyday if you want to get results? Say you pin 20 new images every day.
– Time to find 20 images: 20 images x 1 min = 20min
– Time to find people to follow on Pinterest: 0.5min X 100 = 50min
– Time to find people to like: 0.5min x 50 = 25min
– Time to find pins to repin: 1min x 40 = 40min
– Time to find pins to comment: 1min x 30 = 30min
– Total time required everyday: 2hrs 45min!!!
That is roughly the amount of time you have after coming home from work. What about time for dinner? Time for shower? Family? Social life? Personal stuff? You know what I mean. Hello~~ You are doing internet marketing so that you can have more free time, not to take up more of your time!
Get Your Life Back By Automating Pinterest!
This cool piece of software was developed to help me automate all the process of finding pictures online, pinning and repinning pictures and finding people to like and follow. And now, I use this to help me free up my time while I do more value (i mean money)-adding tasks like product creation and webinar creation.
As you can see, the first tab “Find Cash Pins” will help you to find pictures on flickr using specified keywords and pin them on your board complete with the url link and description. You can even determine how many pictures you want to pin.
The second tab “Pin Drop” allows you to find relevant pins (using specified keywords) to comment. When people see you comment on their pins, they would also be more likely to visit your boards or repin your pins too!
The third tab “Liker” helps you to find pins on Pinterest to like. Also, people whose pins you liked are more likely to follow you back or to like or repin your pins.
The fourth tab “Re-pin King” helps you to re-pin other people’s pictures onto your own board. When your board grows, so will the number of followers 🙂
The last tab “Traffic Avalanche” is designed to help you find people with similar interests to follow.
As you can see, all these functions are developed with one aim in mind — to increase your exposure on the net by increasing your number of pins (and the url embedded within) as well as your number of followers. As your web grow, the more traffic you will get.
Wouldn’t you like to have a software like this to help you? Now, this doesn’t come cheap at all… It costed US$15,000 to develop this software, many a Friday and Saturday nights spent testing the software and discussing with the developer how to improve it. Normally, I will let go of this software for US$997. However, you can get this software for absolutely FREE if you sign up here right now for Matt Lloyd’s “My Online Business Empire”. Then send me your receipt and I will send you your Pinterest automation software for FREE!
Happy Pinning and Watching Your Money Grow,
