Driving traffic solely from profile link?

Anyone here had any luck with driving traffic through the link in your profile?

I ask because I can't seem to drive traffic any other way on Pinterest these days, well I can, but it's only through DMing but that gets my accounts banned easily, and the conversion rate is bad.

I think driving traffic through profile link is the way they do it on Instagram, isn't it?

If so, then it should work on Pinterest as well.
