Why would you use scheduling programs for Pinterest? We all know that Pinterest can be a great tool for catching attention and pulling in readers. But one of the problems with Pinterest is that as you pin, your pins show up on your followers feeds, and when you go to town pinning, you end up practically spamming them. This means two things: first, your followers get annoyed, and second, the importance of individual pins gets lost in the onslaught.
The solution, as it is with other forms of social media, is to use a scheduling program. But what are the best scheduling programs for Pinterest? Check out our list below.
GoPixel is easy to use, and it offers a free version so you can try it out and see if it works for you. The free version only allows you to schedule three pins at a time, so it is not a long-term solution. However, it is always better to try before you buy. Should you decide to buy, there are multiple plans you can choose from, ensuring you get exactly the features you need, and nothing more.
The free version is actually pretty solid, and allows you to control posts on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, and Pinterest. Viraltag does give you more control over your pins than other scheduling programs, but all that control does mean it is a bit harder to navigate. However, if you are trying to organize yourself over multiple platforms, this does let you do it all in one place. The pro version offers increased features, including Google Analytics and image enhancements, but you might be able to work without these.
Unlike the other two options, Everypost allows you to schedule unlimited pins without paying a dime. If money is an object, this is the program to use. However, as a downside, it is only available for mobile devices, so you will be glued to your tablet or smart phone while using it. It does work with other social media platforms, including Facebook, Twitter, Google+, LinkedIn, and Tumbler, so it will help you stay organized.
