Schedule your Pins with Tailwind
Scheduling your Pins can save you a lot of time and can help you to post on a consistent basis, regardless of what else happens during your week or what timezone you’re in.
I usually keep my schedule topped up about two weeks in advance, so it is regularly saving 15-30 Pins over a day for me… it’s like having a virtual assistant!
Setting up a schedule is the key to keeping your sanity and providing your audience with consistent, quality Pins on a regular basis. You can take a few days, a week or even a month off, and know that your Pinterest content will continue to get repins, gain new followers and send warm traffic to your website while you’re gone.
I’m based in Australia, so I also want to make sure I’m pinning content when my key audience in the United States are awake… which is often the middle of the night for me. Scheduling makes this easy.
My tool of choice for this is Tailwind. With Tailwind you can schedule your Pins to multiple boards over time (at times you choose), discover new content, measure your results through detailed analytics, and join Tailwind Tribes to expand your reach and collaborate with other Pinners within your niche.
I use Tailwind over other scheduling programs because it is specifically designed for Pinterest and has a number of features that aren’t available with other tools. I particularly like the ability to schedule a Pin at an interval – meaning it can be saved to multiple boards, spread out over time, to maximize the exposure of my content. Here’s an example of one of my schedules:
I also like that you can add Pins to Tailwind just as easily as you can save them to Pinterest, thanks to the free Tailwind browser plugin. I usually save a bulk of ideas into my “drafts” then come back and add the descriptions and scheduling later.
Tailwind also has useful analytics that provide more detail than Pinterest’s built-in analytics, including your new followers, Pins, repins and likes over the past week, plus some useful board insights to help you identify which boards are performing the best:
