After just over a month of spamming, “Steve” rakes in an average of $1000 a day.
On Amazon, he uses various accounts including the name “final-fantas07.” At one time, thousands of his spambots are sharing posts on Pinterest. He showcases products to the Pinterest community, appealing especially to women, who repin posts and buy items linked to Steve’s Amazon accounts.
“Pinterest is by FAR the easiest social network to spam right now,” Steve told The Daily Dot. “Quite possibly the easiest ever to spam. It requires almost no work to get started and no money to invest. You just have to know how the system works and how you can fix it to your advantage.”
“I fully expect next week’s earnings to be $2,000 to $2,500 a day. There are no guarantees in this business and it could all come crashing down soon,” he said. “Not a matter of if, but when will it happen.”
Out of Steve’s collection of fake accounts, he says, Pinterest has only deleted one.
Hey, it’s a living.
