It is so important to be pinning your things! Last week I posted a lot of great Pinterest stats (check them out if you haven’t yet!)
There are two options in Pinterest:
1- Pin them organically – whenever you have time.
2- Schedule them with an app.
If you go for the first one (I go back and forth between #1 and #2), just be sure to pin your stuff when your audience is on. I pin the most in the evening, because that is when mothers of young kids have the time to get online. I can also pin early in the morning, before her kids are up. (my articles are mostly parenting).
If you go for scheduling, you have a lot of tools to choose from: (almost all of them have free & paid options, or at least a “try it for free before you buy” option).
1- Board Booster. I use this one and it is pretty easy to use. You can also loop your material (meaning that it will re-pin for you over & over). There is a free and paid option, depending on how often you are pinning.
2- ViralTag – The Pinterest scheduling tool, ViralTag, is one that a lot of people love. You can pin to a board and set the time/interval that it goes out.
3- Ahalolgy– I loved this one, but my plugin kept breaking. It made it really easy to have my pins looped.
4- Tailwind – a lot of my friends love this option, too! The app seems to be really helpful & people swear by it!
5- ViralWoot – people love this one for the stats that it provides, really giving you insight into what is working.
There are so many more, but those are the ones that I hear about the most often. I want to encourage you to try these out and find the best option for you. Remember that you can’t mess things up, so just try it. Play around with these apps and websites and really give it a good shot (if you are confused, find a video on youtube to help!)
