For the average casual Pinterest user, scheduling pins to be posted throughout the day or week probably isn’t necessary. But for businesses and brands, well, that’s a different story. It’s now more important than ever to use Pinterest to reach their customers and take their social presence to the next level, making sure those pins are seen often and regularly. To get the most out of Pinterest traffic, we tried experimenting with posting pins at specific times of the day by scheduling. There are lots of great scheduling tools out there already—but for Pinterest scheduling, you have to dig a bit deeper. Here are a few great tools you can get started with right away!
Looking for a simple free tool for scheduling just a couple Pinterest pins? Then Go Pixel might be just what you need. With a free account, you can schedule up to three pins a day by adding them to your queue or setting them up to be posted at any specific time. You also get a weekly update on your stats.
Another free option, this social dashboard tool lets you schedule and post images up to three social social networks, including Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Pinterest. The Pinterest scheduling tool is especially great, because you can select the specific board you want, add a description and a source and then set the time and interval for posting.
Formally known as Pinwoot, Viralwoot is another popular pin scheduling tool, which you use from a desktop computer. In addition to scheduling, you can promote your pins, create pin alerts, see your stats and gain insight of your website’s Pinterest presence. Although it’s not entirely free, it’s one of the cheaper options out there for a good quality Pinterest scheduling tool at just $5 a month.
4. Everypost (iPhone & Android App)
Everypost is one of the few options out there that offers free Pinterest scheduling for as many pins as you really want. And unlike many of the other services out there, it comes only in the form of a mobile app. It’s more of a complete, all-in-one social media management app, but post scheduling is one of its big features. It also works with Facebook, Twitter, Google+, LinkedIn and Tumblr. When you create a new post, simply use your finger to slide the post button so the clock is selected, and from there you’ll be able to schedule your post.
We’re just lovin’ Pinterest even more now! So, don’t wait, pin away!
