If you’ve made the decision to focus on your Pinterest, congratulations! I really couldn’t be more excited for you! If you haven’t made the decision to focus on Pinterest as your #1 marketing tool, you might want to read this post. There are a lot of things to do to do well on Pinterest, but one of the big ones is to stay active on the platform. Besides sharing your own content, you want to share others’ content. Show Pinterest that ALL your content is worth resharing to others. While it may sound dreamy to some to spend their whole day on Pinterest, “staying active,” it really isn’t a good use of time. So how do you stay active on Pinterest and have a life? Scheduling platforms! And, Tailwind for Pinterest in particular!
Why Should You Use a Pinterest Scheduling Tool?
Pinterest scheduling tools let you take one very productive morning or afternoon on Pinterest and turn that into consistent activity on Pinterest for the week or month (or months if you’re really productive). I currently have an average of 50 pins/day scheduled for the next 32 days and it only took me an hour or so to complete. These 1600+ pins are a combination of content from my own site and a lot of content from around the internet. So how did I do that? My Pinterest scheduling tool!
What’s the best Pinterest Scheduling Platform?
I’ve been a customer and aficionado of Tailwind for the last few years. I love a lot of things about them (a bit more below), but the thing I love the most is how easy it is for me to schedule a lot of content, set it, and forget it. Besides having a great platform to find, share, and organize your content, they also have a browser extension (a little button that constantly lives next to your url bar). When you click the button, it pulls all the images from your current page and lets you pick which ones you want to schedule. It’s great for scheduling photos from all around the internet, but it’s most helpful scheduling pins directly from Pinterest. So how do I mass schedule pins? First, I figure out which boards need new pins. Next I do a series of searches on Pinterest. After each search, I scroll (very quickly) down through the search results until a least fifty pins have loaded. Then I hit that Tailwind extension button and up comes all the images that were returned in my search. I carefully scroll through those images and select all the ones I want to schedule to my board(s). I pick the board, hit schedule, and repeat until I’ve gotten through the boards I want to update. And the second best part? After you schedule all these pins, you can head into your Tailwind for Pinterest dashboard and “shuffle queue,” which means that your pins won’t all go to the same board in the order you pinned them – seemingly random and completely organic!
Why do I love Tailwind for Pinterest so much?
Besides being a great tool for scheduling a ton of content, I love being a part of the tailwind community. If I ever have a question, I can email their support and have a response within a day (sometimes within an hour or two). I also love using their tribes, which are groups of pinners in similar niches. Members of each group agree to repin one another’s content! Finally, I love using Tailwind for Pinterest because they provide great insights, including doing a complete profile analysis to make sure you haven’t missed anything and give you great feedback on which pins you shared are doing well and worth repinning! Talk about making Pinterest marketing easy for me, leaving me time to focus on Instagram, my site, and my personal life!
