You wanna know a great way to waste time? Manually pinning on Pinterest. It is one thing to scroll through your feed for outfit ideas and soup recipes on your personal account, but pinning to your business account without a scheduler is a time-sucker. I am going to show you how to automate your Pinterest so you can spend less time pinning, while also growing your account!
According to Buffer, you should pin at least 5 times a day, but it’s best to pin up to 30. You should also post a mixture of both your content and other people’s content. I aim for the 80/20 principle – 80% other people’s content, 20% your own content.
But how will you know what times to set for these slots?
Also, don’t worry about spamming your followers by pinning to multiple boards. Thanks to Pinterest’s algorithm, your pin will just be shown to your followers once at a time.
Profile performance shows you a graph of your follower growth, your daily pin activity, your daily repins, and your pin comments.
Tailwind Tribes are like fancy Pinterest group boards. You can easily join tribes based on your topic or niche.
Make sure you have Pinterest-worthy blog graphics. This means vertical, high-quality pins. To create your own blog graphics that others will want to pin, check out my post: How to Create Pinterest-Worthy Blog Graphics (No Photoshop Required)!
Clicking the Tailwind extension icon will pull up all images on the webpage. Select the image you would like to pin and then select which tribes you would like to add it to. Make sure you have optimized descriptions with keywords!
Check out my stats for the Tailwind tribe Blogger’s Chalkboard. From pinning to this tribe alone, my pins were repinned 23 times, making my reach is over 1.2 million. How cool is that???
