The Importance of Proper Pinterest Scheduling

Pinterest SchedulingPinterest is one of the fastest growing social media communities out there today. This steep growth has made Pinterest one of the top ten social media websites in the US,in the midst of other giants such as Facebook and Twitter.

Due to the growing popularity, a lot of businesses are showing interest in Pinterest. According to current statistics, around 60% of all major brands have Pinterest accounts that they use frequently.

Why Do Brands Use Pinterest?

Different brands use Pinterest to pin images of their products on their account. They post attractive pictures and use SEO friendly keywords in the descriptions, which are directly linked to the main website of the brand. When a user searches the keyword, they are directed to the brand’s Pin/board and and then to the main website. Traffic increases and more traffic equals more sales.

Why Schedule Pins?

There are a few basic rules for staying popular on Pinterest, and one of them includes pinning frequently. However, users must be careful of the fact that if they pin too less, people may forget about them and move on to other boards. On the other hand, if they pin too often, it might annoy certain people and may cause them to unfollow you, which can be detrimental to your business.

A good way to deal with this problem is to use a Pin scheduler. There are several Pin scheduling tools available that charge a monthly fee and will schedule your Pins anytime.

Importance Of Pin Scheduling Tools

As a business, you should be well aware of the importance of pinning on time. With a Pin scheduling tool you can decide to post pins during prime time so that you get a large number of repins, likes and comments that will lead to more traffic to your website. The tool is extremely useful for businesses that are catering to international audiences, as it can post all day long and the time difference won’t be such a huge concern for potential clients that live overseas.

If you are managing your business account then you will have to spend several hours a day looking for pictures to upload Pins, which can be quite tiring. A Pin scheduler makes life easy, as one only has to find pictures, write descriptions and let the tool do the job.
