Pinterest Case Study Update – 93,180 visitors in 3 days
Hopefully you’ve already read my Pinterest Case Study post. If not, then I suggest you go look at those numbers before you look at the ones in this post – it will give you some perspective. The short version is that in three months I was able to get more than one million visitors from Pinterest that resulted in more than $10,000 in profit.
Friday morning, however, I woke up to a very pleasant surprise. One of my Pinterest-promoted web properties had begun to go viral. The pins targeting that site were being repinned like mad. Friday was by far the single best earnings day for the site, and one of the best earnings day for my Pinterest network (about $400).
It was, at least, until Saturday. The viral storm continued to strengthen, and I ended Saturday with another $543 – the best earnings day for my Pinterest site network period.
Until (you guessed it) Sunday. The traffic and earnings exploded Sunday (which is definitely the best day for Pinterest traffic), resulting in a whopping $1,320 in net earnings for that one day.
From Friday September 30th through Sunday October 2nd the site got more than 93,000 visitors from Pinterest, my Pinterest network earned $2,259.90 and I added 1,340 email subscribers to that one site’s email list.
When was the last time Google rewarded your site with that kind of traffic, earnings and opt-ins in such a short period of time? Never? I didn’t think so.
Here are the screenshots to prove that I’m not inventing these massive numbers. I’ve blacked out parts of the screenshots that would violate my own privacy, customer privacy or the terms of service for each revenue provider. Otherwise the images have not been altered.
The Viral Trend Continues
The viral traffic storm hasn’t stopped yet. It will be interesting (and lucrative) to see how long it lasts, but I wanted to update you with the figures now so you can see what’s possible with Pinterest if you do things right.
Also, keep in mind that these results didn’t happen overnight. I’ve been promoting this particular web property in Pinterest for about three months.The accounts promoting this site have been aging and growing in popularity over that time. The traffic and earnings have grown quickly but steadily until Friday when they seriously spiked.
That said, three months to achieve this kind of traffic and revenue is extremely fast in comparison to how long it normally takes to rank a site in Google for enough keywords to get even a fraction of these results. If you’re not putting your time and attention into Pinterest, you’re missing out big time.
Automation Is The Key
Like I said in my original Pinterest Case Study post, software automation is the key to the successful promotion of my web properties in Pinterest. I am hard at work at a desktop version that will perform the same kind of automation that my in-house system does. It’s coming along nicely and should be ready for public distribution by the last week of this month (October).
