"Welcome here it is" - How and Why to use Pinterest for both Personal or Business - by Ricardo - Pinterest for Business Expert in UK - ALL the up-to-date info. is here. + How to create bookmarks AND generate growing / FREE "web-traffic". The VERY latest "tips and tricks" are on this one page!

 This is "THE" page which explains how you can develop your Pinterest site and build 26 THOUSAND followers! +++ how to create SIGNIFICANT "targetted" web/blog traffic at NO cost!

It's working for thousands of others right now!

If you want to try P - I am organising shared boards which can easily feed traffic to your site - I need your web address "only" to suggest what is the best way.


All comments are welcome +  I need to know if this page is helping you? - it's going well but more comments can tell me what would be even more helpful???

All info here is by myself - Ricardo "recently-retired" Serial Entrepreneur - it's a deep study of Pinterest and it's keeping my brain ticking over! - What I first noticed is this: When researching the web for - "things" OR "inspiration" P makes this easier: HOW--? Pinning images using an organised board structure creates "a - bank" of links which when clicked lead back to the page from where they came. With one click you have created a bookmark to the appropriate web page - this means "FREE" web traffic for the site owner! + "it stops us having to search again for stuff we have already seen". The Pins carry links so finding your research stuff is made easier.

Using Pinterest I have developed daily routines "ALL are described here + more pages with further explanation" - keep reading!

You are here, along with a thousand + others per day - "ALL" web traffic to this page is generated completely FREE by my own use of Pinterest!

So - here it is, a snippet of information - These unique processes generate AND target web traffic at NO cost. Using this "myself" I can turn web traffic on and off as easily as using our kitchen tap (see below)! If you have, or know anyone with a website who would like more traffic - then let them know!


Below is ALL the "most" important information from my study so far / after you see the tap is "Grumpy Cat" who passed away recently - he was the most famous cat that lived! you can see him here >

Grumpy the Famous Feline

Reading this page can take 10 minutes or more! For an overview there is a "quick version" click here > Pinterest-quick-and-simple. Don't worry - understanding it should be easy - Please let me know if not! - I can "and do" update both in just a few seconds based on feedback!

Pinterest is a great platform for companies that are able to create "pin boards" with content that contains visual appeal. ... Simply harnessing the power of Pinterest, you can use it yourself as a VERY powerful tool in your social media marketing mix.


This info is new! > Over the last 6 weeks just gone - I have been managing my Pinterest board followers from 19K towards and past 20K. Leading up to 26K + The follower numbers changed from being fairly stable at +150 ish per day (eight per hour-ish) to a random = none for six hours then eight hours later 100+ all at once. It seemed like something was going wrong - I simply don't know but was pleased that this returned to normal and now the growth has slowed again !! (last few days are down a bit) - don't worry I am finding the reason and will update this ASAP)

I am still working on this in the last 4 days I have lost some followers but today - 18/10 I have started losses again (50 followers out of 26K gone!) - I don't know why this is but will update asap!!!


I am recruiting for a third trainee to learn - then teach others - this can be done from "anywhere" - email your CV to I will reply asap.

I have now opened an Amazon sales account and am working on Dropshipping (high ticket items) how this works is this: When visitors click "for-sale" pins the inbuilt link takes them to my buying page - Using this method Amazon pay me 2% for from each sale (not much - BUT - I have no costs!).

My original thinking was to start by building a BIG following (this is now "sort-of" done + growing daily by adding new followers. My view remains that it is best to develop a good audience of "followers" before experimenting with selling stuff.


For new Pinners! Shared sales boards and other ideas are welcome on my P site (these are working well) - email me direct if you want to share any of your own boards. My own Pinterest boards are now in the TOP 4% for traffic generation and WILL continue to grow daily! This is now a successful project "you can read my establish entrepreneurs help - page here" >:

Read by entrepreneurs all over the world

This page you are on is FULL of only "Tested Ideas" to share with ALL P users both business and personal. The information is here to help you organise your own stuff + get things found. Pinterest makes it easier to find business (using FREE web traffic generation) "that means Zero cost advertising".

For research Pinterest is also "a fantastic tool" e.g. I have collected and pinned nearly 2 "THOUSAND" pins all leading to "Brexit Stories" (How boring is that!) "I did it to demonstrate the power of Pinterest for students" You can see how my Brexit integrated Pinterest boards work on another webpage here (this is VERY busy right now): >

 Brexit - what a mess it is!

+ Here below is my Pinterest integrated Brexit "web page"  It's the combination of website AND Pinterest (2000 puns) that drive web traffic!

Brexit on Pinterest Boards  


This page updated - 22/10/2019: -- I have followed ALL P News daily now for 20 MONTHS  - There is more every single day. The "quick view info is all here" click >>



If you are researching or starting a dropshipping or "affiliate - marketing" sales business yourself with web traffic generated on Pinterest I can advise / consult / help (contact me by email clickable links are below) -  A few weeks ago I was offered 10KUSD-$ for my Pinterest account - it had 12K followers then -  It's 25K+ now! so it must be the going up in value! I am retired and need my P account, (it keeps my brain active!). It will be 27K+ in followers in the next day or two - I hope! (these kind of numbers make generation of web traffic using P a "no brainer")


Regarding the "Shared Board" part of the project (you can see this in action on my P site - it's the boards with photo circles bottom left) ! * I just added an International user stats page - (link in menu is above) - The dropshipping button takes you to a full explanation written by DD (he gave me publishing permission) and IS the world's expert on this subject. My own Dropshipping site (under development) is coming very soon. Dropshipping itself is a big part of what is killing our shops (my own view is that this cannot be stopped). I live in Chester UK which is "WORLD" famous for it's shops "The Rows" we don't want to loose them that's for sure! I have an idea how to save them (it involves focussing totally on tourism!) - there does seem to be interest in this! - That's "INTEREST" NOT Pinterest!

Which Pin is a winner? + Who knows and why?

  + Here below are the answers to - "why you should use Pinterest for your business"
The recent Pinterest Capital Raising "was a success" - a "VERY basic (what I call) "quick and dirty" review is here:  

Founded in 2009, Pinterest provides a social media and information search system to find stuff and organise images,typically photos, recipes and short movies. “Pinterest inspires users to discover and sort images that they love. It engenders creativity and allows easy / tidy collecting of ideas.” At the same time it is now becoming one of "THE" main drivers of traffic to websites worldwide.


It’s a simple to use but very powerful and a VERY effective e-commerce / platform. Revenues from advertising are expected to hit $1.8 billion next year. There are worldwide, more than 280 million active users now.

Pinterest is in the top-five mobile apps. One third of users access their own accounts on a daily basis.

 P - Current valuation is close to >   $14 billion. (News here available as it happens)


ALL here is written by "me" Ricardo here in Chester UK ( ex-corporate business planner and 20+ years a serial entrepreneur - now "sort-of" retired) - Visits to this page are coming from all over the world, I am answering questions daily by email, you can ask here in any language + if you send your website url I advise free of any charge on the potential of Pinterest + integration on your own website > (I usually reply within 3 days). Information here is updated constantly with developing knowledge!

I can advise on: Help with setup and development of your own P structure including quick and easy "website integration" = code for your own website and installation. Further services include help with monetisation, affiliate selling and drop-shipping. + An important piece of information that I believe is known to me ONLY. How to generate and post mulitiple pins, "quick and easy" which all carry your own webpage url.


P is simply the best way to grow web traffic at virtually no cost! Developed by myself and as far as I am aware this method is unique to "ME"

Note: If you would like this page in your own language use the Google converter at the top of this page, or email specify your language and I will publish or reply with translated copy (by Google of course).

How to manage - Viral Pins.

 I have been studied how to develop and track "VIRAL PINS". In the last couple of months I collected the data on 120+. This process has involved, a good bit of experimentation, "IT WORKS" + has created thousands of web visits to this page - I am developing now "a process" to do this by specific location.  At this moment I am not finding that as easy! If you know any reason please help! So far I have built 1 only localised board and that is for Chester UK. (Chester is a Roman city - small - but attracts a mass of tourists - this is a big part of our local economy) see: >> Chester Tourist Guide

 Should you have Pinterest Save buttons on your own website?

 Answer = "YES ABSOLUTELY and soon": Pinterest Save buttons encourage people to pin your website images + make this easier (this is what creates your free traffic). Once you install the P button visitors can easily save and pin your images which then automatically carry inbuilt links back to your website. If your images are good they are re-pinned - the result is an increase in your website visitors at ZERO cost!  - How simple is that! (I always reffered to stuff like this as "a no-brainer" but so many websites are not doing this yet!).

What do Pinterest themselves recommend?

I recommend that you also download / read the free "Pinterest Best Practice Guide" it is available to download right here as a .pdf file. This takes one minute only but worth waiting! Here it is - click here > Pinterest Best Practice Guide I have referenced this in my project many times.


Further free info all about finding followers (this is good but a BIG read). click here to download so you can read it off line when you have time! > Pinterest Followers Guide It's a (.pdf) file - Some recent info here is that I have had a number of followers with photos of themselves in a state of undress (not family friendly) Pinterest helped me with this and is now - resolved completely - if this happens to you contact me for help R. To get a pinnable image on this page I have made sure it is repinned and liked a lot - I have no idea why - I work with numbers - "mostly"!

 So - step by step  - "How to start and how to generate new, no-cost additional web traffic using Pinterest".

It works. Do this "now" the result will be - more discovery and more sales for less cost!

The images here on this page have ALL been pinned by myself - the first one does well - the second one went "viral" and so did the third one. I am a "self-taught" expert at understanding how to use and integrate Pinterest in web marketing from a technical viewpoint - I understand this bit upside down and inside out. One thing for sure - if images of your products could perform anything even approaching the performance I achieved then your sales will increase for the lowest cost outlay imaginable. I have astounding figures as a result of this research.

 Growth of followers

 Here are the ways to accelerate growth whilst maintaining cross traffic generation (If you have followers growing at +10% per week) - my Pinterest site views are currently over 2 MILLION viewers per MONTH! - You can increase your own web traffic = Pinterest is certainly the way forward for you. (there are 83 thousand + Pins on my own boards so far)

It's now becoming expected for all "visual important" websites to have Pinterest integration - so here is more on how this works;

All images here "when pinned" carry inbuilt links directly back to this page. This is what generates the web traffic which, as a result increases daily. The 1st one you can see below is called a "rich pin" and carries live the number of times it has been repinned. You can see the number of times it has been re-pinned. From those the escalating re-pins could be MASSIVE! - if each new destination pin board attracts the same, in a short time it will have reached millions of views / "new business opportunities at a minuscule cost"

 What is Drop-shipping?

I am now getting many questions about "drop-shipping" and have recently started a second study (based on information you can see here) - it is written by Damien Defranco - "THE - WORLD expert on this subject".

  Dropshipping / I am now recommending this.

Pinterest ??? (many things to many people - now qualified as "THE" fastest" growing business on our planet.

All research here was started in 2018 "still underway daily"

I first published this page (after building visitors + followers) I know now that the "world" is very "P-interested" - more than just here on our tiny island of UK (where "by the way" we are VERY VERY SLOW in take-up).

 With more than "295 million" daily users and a growth rate of more than 40% per year, the indication (a fact even) is that Pinterest is fulfilling a demand rather well! It is NOT another Facebook which remains dominant in terms of group social interaction. Pinterest is an image, # "AND" word / "searchable" matching application with astounding/addictive share-ability AND top class functionality. + it is fun + easy to use! (those are the main reasons for P's astonishing results)
Our decisions are influenced by how things look - we all know that visual images are important regarding a high percentage of everyone's desires, interests and purchases.
In USA today more than 70% of females between 25 and 55 now use Pinterest "daily" for both enjoyment and decision making / purchasing. The male equivalent has now reached over 30 % !!. Here in the UK we "WILL" catch up or catch on - even us men. I have not yet discovered why we are so far behind these International trends (but I will)!
relatively new ability to record images and make comparisons of product availability and cost is now changing the way shopping works. Pinterest has made image/idea sharing "easy and enjoyable" + product matching and price comparison - "it's simple". - "drag frame on image + click" or with lens (pinterest image matching) "point your phone and click" (you are now looking at - choice, including links directly to a choice of suppliers info). 

Pinterest is now "THE" leading platform for image recognition, image comparison AND image sharing. (the Google of images with links built in). Many pins click lead directly to more info, advisors and, websites where you can review ideas, find and buy stuff quicker on-line.

 What are embedded P boards?

Here directly below is another
working example of a pin board (it's embedded in this page and operates on a "live" basis) - I started with 18 boards in total as part of my research - increased this to 80+ including shared boards and sub-boards. All these boards are all connected "live", the one right here below has (20,000 + photos of cats!) - it could easily be photos of your products) - "I did say  TWENTY thousand + cat photos" - as you are reading this - right now - you can try by scrolling it - or read more and come back. I recommend you read more of this first - it's only a 5 minute read in total (you are welcome to take longer!) ! Note: the integrated boards on this page are auto-truncated for reasons of page load speed "click the invite to go to the full board".

There are many untapped applications of this technology in development that is useful for most if not all businesses, as well as benefits for users.
The FREE Pinterest, "app" lends itself to VERY easy integration in
websites. e.g. Images from sites can be saved and shared by anyone visiting (THIS IS FREE MARKETING). Importantly (here is the benefit), these images can and DO - carry inbuilt digital information links of real value. This means users can and do find more quickly the best source of the product, idea, service or experience being offered. This function (UNIQUE to P) makes Pinterest a "search engine" of amazing ability.

 It's now simple for most businesses
