How to use Pinterest to drive more traffic and revenue

A good friend of mine is a writer. She has been writing short stories and thought-provoking articles. I motivated her to start a website for her blogs. She excitedly took up the challenge of learning the art of blogging. But even after a couple of months, I saw there was not many visiting her website. I could sense that she was losing motivation but I din’t want to let her talent go in vain. I asked her to search the net and she learnt a lot about search engine optimisation and digital advertisement. But all these needed some kind of technical know-how and budget. She had neither.
It was then that I suggested her to use Pinterest to get more traffic to her website. She followed my advice and she never had to look back after that. She came to know about various marketing tools being used for this very purpose. Pinterest marketing when done properly can turn the fortunes for people like her.
A lot of the mundane tasks involved in Pinterest marketing can however be automated. For example one can automatically unfollow thousands of users who don’t follow them back thus maintaining an equilibrium between followers and following. More about Pinterest automation in coming paragraphs.
Ever since she is using Pinterest, the viewership and followings have increased manifolds. I picked up a few things which I will share with you guys which in turn will help increase the traffic to your website.
