I always respect comments + Right now I need to know if this page is
helping? - it's going well but your comments can tell me what
would be even more helpful???
All info. by myself - Ricardo
"recently-retired" Serial Entrepreneur - it's a study of
Pinterest to keep 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 lead back
at one click to the web pages from where
they came - this means "FREE" web traffic
for site owner! + "it stops us having to
search again for stuff we have already seen".
Using Pinterest I have developed daily
routines "all are described
here + a second page with more explanation" - keep reading!
You are here, along with a thousand + others
per day - "ALL" web traffic to this page is generated completely FREE
by using Pinterest!
So here it
is, a MASS of information - These unique
processes generate AND targetted web traffic at NO cost.
Using this "myself" I can turn web traffic on and off as easily as
using our kitchen tap! If you have, or know
anyone with a website who would like more traffic - then let them know!
Right here - below is ALL the "most" important information from my study
so far / after you see the tap is "Grumpy Cat" who passed away
recently - the most famous cat that lived! you can see him
Grumpy the Famous Feline
Reading this page can take
10 or more minutes!

Pinterest is a great platform for companies that are able to create
boards with content which contain visual appeal.
... Simply harness 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 few days just gone - I have
been managing my Pinterest board followers from 19K towards and past
20K. Leading up to 24K 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 to find this has returned to normal
and now - higher per day
I am recruiting for a second trainee to learn

I have 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
My original thinking was to start by building a BIG following (this
is now 24K+) done + growing daily
by an average of 200+ new followers. My view
remains that it is best to develop a good audience of "followers"
before experimenting with selling stuff.
For other 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
continue to grow daily! It is starting to look like
a successful project "you can read my entrepreneurs -

The information is written to help you organise your own

For research Pinterest is "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: >
Brexit - what a mess it is!

Pinterest integrated Brexit "web page" It's the combination of website AND Pinterest that
drives the traffic!

A few weeks ago I was offered 10KUSD-$ for my Pinterest account - it
had 12K followers then - It's 22K+ 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 23K+ in followers in the next day or two! (these kind
of numbers make generation of web traffic using P a "no brainer")

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

How to manage -
I have been studying 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: >>

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

waiting! Here it is - click here >

I have referenced this in my project many times.

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 -
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
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"
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".

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.
today more than 70% of females between 25 and 55 now use
"daily" for both enjoyment and decision
making / purchasing. The male equivalent has
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
Pinterest has made image/idea sharing "easy and
product matching and price comparison - "it's simple".

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.
FREE Pinterest, "app" lends itself to VERY easy integration

is the benefit), these images can and DO - carry inbuilt digital information
