Are you using Pinterest to help market your business? It’s been a while since I’ve covered anything Pinterest on the blog, even though it’s probably one of my favourite social networks. So, if you want to get better results and save time with your social media marketing, read on this blog post for 10 Pintastic Pinterest tools to help grow your business.

Pinterest tools for management, dashboards and automation

1.    IFTTT

10 Pintastic tools to grow your business

If this, then that aka IFTTT is a very cool time saving, productivity tool that helps you automate various aspect of your digital life: from tools to mute your phone when you get to work to automations for changing your phone’s wallpaper with the latest NASA photos, there’s a little something for everyone. Honestly, once you start browsing through all the different applets available, it can get a bit difficult to stop!

IFTTT also have automation features for all major social networks, including Pinterest. I would recommend exploring through all the different IFTTT Pinterest applets, as there is a plethora of them. For example, you can automatically send out a tweet or a Facebook post whenever you post a new Pin, or you could make it so all of your new Instagram uploads are automatically synced to one of your Pinterest boards.

It’s little features and automations like this that might not seem like much at first glance, but would actually save you quite a bit of time every day, especially if you’re an avid social media user.

Tailwind is a tool designed specifically for the two top visual social networks – Pinterest and Instagram.

So, if you use Pinterest a lot for your social media marketing, you would definitely benefit from using Tailwind. For one, it allows you to schedule Pins, as well as to upload images in bulk and you can also use their browser extension to easily create multiple posts directly within the website you’re visiting. Their content optimisation features help you post more efficiently, at the best possible times and there is a ‘suggested content’ feature, where you get suggestions of the best visual content that you could share, based on what you’re already sharing, so that you can be consistent in your marketing.

There is also a monitoring tool for tracking conversations and to help you find the most amazing content to share, and in-depth analytics to help measure your Pinterest (and Instagram) success.

  1. I specially love recitethis, In fact I love them all. The ony one I hadnt tried was Pinvolve and It wont accept my Fan Page. Not sure why, but I will get to the bottom of it.

    I mostly use Canva but if I am i a hurry I use Buffer’s Pablo App for social media images that can be shared instantly. Including Pin-tastic Images and Branded image quotes wit my own logo.
    I dont know what I would do without Tailwind, love it.

    Do you have a hidden Pinterest Image Lilach? I havent noticed on on your blogs? If so I want the trick 🙂 Coz they are resource hungry them Pinterest Images. 🙂

    1. Thanks Julie 🙂 I’m a huge fan of Canva – use it daily and love it! Yes Tailwind is a fab tool too!

      I used to have the Pinterest image but took it off recently. I’ve found that it was too many distractions and I get more value from other social networks so wanted to focus people to share it on Twitter/Facebook – having too many calls to action can affect your conversion rates.

  2. Thank you so much for including Viraltag in your list Lilach! We appreciate it 🙂

        Hey Lilach,
        thanks for the reply. Sorry for replying late..didn’t see this earlier…
        Just google “Pinpinterest” and follow the 1st link that comes up. Sign up for an account, configure your Pinterest account into it and you’re ready to start your Pinteresting spree 🙂

    Having tried other tools like BoardBooster & Tailwind for months, getting 2 of my accounts suspended and still not getting the desired market for my Pinterest account, I decided to give it another shot with and it came up as the perfect thing I was looking for months. From zero, I now have more than 26k followers on my account.
    It worked amazingly well for me. First of all, it was free and that too on cloud that meant I could use it anywhere and at any point of time without worrying to have the same PC. What made a difference was the sophisticated algorithm system which screened the content and the pins and pin only the relevant items on my boards & the freedom to add and manage all my accounts in just 1 PinPinterest account. I just set a schedule for one day of the week when I setup my preferences, and it works for the rest of the week as per my preferences.
