The Fastest Way To Schedule Pins For Pinterest
We all know that Pinterest is a mega powerhouse when it comes to growing our business, driving traffic to our sites and creating our brand’s image. We also know that pinning can take a lot of time and we want to be seen as ‘always’ being on Pinterest.
There’s a way to make it all happen, a 10 minute set up that will continue to pin for you day after day until you tell it to stop.
I’ve tried a few different scheduling tools for Pinterest including both Tailwind and Ahalogy but I find BoardBooster to be the best, by far.
It’s only been recently that I’ve discovered the feature ‘Looping’. If you haven’t already got your BoardBooster account then you’re really missing out – but you can set up a free trial which will allow you to fully test out their features before realising that it is honestly an amazing tool.
So here’s a quick rundown on how to set up a ‘Looping’ feature on BoardBooster, that will only take 10 minutes and you can forget all about it.
BoardBooster Looping Tutorial
Once you’re logged into your BoardBooster account, select ‘Looping’ from the top menu and click on ‘Add Boards’.
Step 1 is to select the boards you would like to loop. I generally pick my most popular boards with the most number of pins. You don’t want to loop a board with less than 100 pins otherwise you’ll be showing the same pins over and over again.
Step 2 is to set up how often you’d like the pins to be looped. Again, this depends on the number of pins you have on the board and the popularity. For my smaller boards I just pin 1 per day so the boards are still ‘active’. For my larger boards like my Blogging General Tips board I loop 10 pins a day.
I also make sure I enable protection for viral duplicates. Because BoardBooster will automatically delete the duplicate pin with the least number of repins, I want to make sure that if BOTH pins have a large number of repins, they stay on my board. This protects the ‘health’ of my boards and ensure my repin averages are protected.
Finally, click on submit and that’s it. Your looping is set up!! So easy and so effective. Once you’ve clicked submit you’ll see your board pop up with details of how often you are pinning to it. Once BoardBooster has had time to collaborate all that data from that board, you’ll also be able to see your boards stats such as the average number of repins and how many followers your board has.
This is by far the fastest way to start your scheduling and is perfect for those who have a lot of pins already and want to keep active on Pinterest. It also means you’re showing off some of your older pins that your new followers haven’t seen yet. I truly love this feature.
