I recently shared my overall Pinterest strategy in a post about how I doubled my Pinterest in just a few months. However, I did not cover the mechanics of how I actually get my pins out there without spending hours a day on Pinterest. Fortunately, there are so many fabulous pin scheduling tools out there that you can totally make it look like you live on Pinterest while really only spending a few minutes a week there!
I have tried a lot of Pin scheduling tools and there are definitely pros and cons to each one. I've finally settled on a system that I'm pretty happy with. It requires minimal time and effort and gets pins out there pretty much the way I'd like.
Here's what I've tried as far as Pin scheduling goes:
* Ahalogy. For a long time I used Ahalogy exclusively. The biggest benefit to this is that you get extra bonus traffic from within the network. The downside is that it takes forever to actually schedule pins! They don't have enough content within their network (especially in my organizing genre), so I had to constantly go to Pinterest, find the content, go to the source, and use the Ahalogy toolbar button.
* Tailwind. I really do like Tailwind. I love how they space pins out and distribute them. It's also quick and easy to schedule straight from any source or from Pinterest itself on desktop. The biggest downside is that there really isn't a fast way to schedule pins on mobile. If there was, I'd definitely consider sticking with Tailwind.
*Boardbooster. I now use Boardbooster because once it's set up it runs almost magically on autopilot. Plus scheduling and adding new pins is a piece of cake on mobile or desktop because you just pin to a secret board and Boardbooster schedules from there.
It took me a little while to get Boardbooster to work exactly how I wanted. I wanted to loop my content on my top boards PLUS schedule new content from other blogs intermixed with my own content. Here's a video I recorded to show you exactly how I do it:
