Pinterest Scheduling Applications: Let’s Compare


Pinterest Scheduling

With an audience of over 70 million users across the globe, Pinterest can be a powerful marketing tool for businesses.  However anyone who has ever used Pinterest knows just how much time it can take searching for the right content to pin to your boards.

Thankfully there are Pinterest scheduling applications available which help you to save time and drive to traffic to your website, allowing you to focus on what’s most important – your business.

There are two main advantages to scheduling your pins instead of simply pinning posts all in one session:

  1. You won’t be overwhelming your followers with a massive amount of pins posted at once.
  2. The chances of your followers repinning your images will be higher if you space them out during the day by scheduling.
