My Favorite Pinterest Scheduler
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:

I’ll check those out. Thanks! Any suggestions for editorial calendars that are free? or really, really cheap?
I love board booster! I’ve been using it for a few weeks and my following has increased way more than it did with Tailwind

Laura, thanks so much for this tutorial! Setting up my BoardBooster account has been on my list of things to do for the last 3 months. I’m going through your video minute-by-minute and copying your settings for mine. 🙂
Do you only use the campaign tool to schedule pins to group boards?

I schedule to group boards with and also sprinkle my own content to my own board with it.

I LOVE Boardbooster! Ever since I switched I’ve been seeing steady growth and like you said, it’s so easy to use!

Tailwind now has a mobile app that I’ve heard they are constantly working on updating 🙂

Thank you for the video. I have been trying to figure this out for a week and your video was perfect timing and explained everything.
This is so awesome!
My traffic has exploded on Pinterest. After 7 months of blogging I finally figured out that Pinterest is where it’s at! I knew I had something to offer – I just didn’t know how to find readers.
Thank you so much for your helpful tips. I’m a devoted reader. 🙂

Looping on Boardbooster changed my life! Like you, I have a few boards that I focus on and I use the looping feature to keep them active. Thanks for the video!

Thanks Laura! This is so helpful! I’m so glad you included the video–it makes a lot more sense seeing exactly how it’s set up.

Thank you for all of your help, suggestions, and courses! You have been amazing and have helped me tremendously.
As a fellow blogger, for another website that is listed above, I was nominated for the Liebster award and I am also nominating you! You do not need to accept, FYI, but it is a fun way to let your fans get to know you a bit better! http://www.partyplanprosperity.com/i-have-been-nomi…e-liebster-award
Thanks again Laura! Please don’t stop what you are doing and keep sharing all of your knowledge!
Thanks for sharing! I am going to check these out. I think it will help time wise for Pinterest.
I am brand new to Pinterest and doing a lot of research. before I found you, I had run into threads recommending Tail Wind, Boardbooster and Post Planner. Since I’m a noob trying to find my way, would you be so kind as to briefly explain what the differences are? From what I have been able to understand, a lot of folks like TailWinds, but it has limitations. So they use Boardbooster to help automate it altogether(?) Does this make any sense? lol Your advice is greatly appreciated. 🙂

I think tailwind and boardbooster are both good. It really just depends on personal preference.

My favourite scheduler (and overall organiser) is http://PinPinterest.com Its truly the tool of 2017!! I’m using it to automate and manage my pinterest account for about 7 months now, and I’ve gained results both in the form of followers and revenue.
It runs on the cloud..no need to download anything to your PC..simply configure it once n hit the start button once and it does the rest.
Free to use, mobile optimised, Pin Scheduler, Speed control, Intelligent content detection algorithms..the features’ list goes on and on… 🙂

Be it controlling the speed of the pins in the account, getting the best content updated, setting up the schedules for the pins for the whole week, or proofing my account to be ban-safe… I have got all these amazing things at one stop solution i.e., http://PinPinterest.com
Using it for months now and I am truly amazed at how my ratings have gone up, my followers have increased, my pin boards look amazing. And everything is just available through my mobile phone too thereby letting me keep a check whenever I need. I transfer days between my multiple accounts as per my convenience and needs.
